Rooting Out Resistance to Change

It is never easy to change our mind about anything, as long as we remain attached to a particular belief, outcome or line of reasoning.  Subsequently, we can become inflexible and intolerant of new ideas.  There are several barries to emotional, personal and spiritual freedom and ATTACHMENT is one of the most potent.

In my recently released book, Healing, Meaning & Purpose:  The magical power of the emerging laws of life, I discuss 12 major reasons why people resist change.  They are:

  1. Being unaware that change is possible.
  2. Having entrenched belief systems.
  3. Having an emotional or habitual attachment to a particular way of doing things.
  4. Feeling comfortable about where you are.
  5. Fearing change or the consequences of change, like losing face or risking embarrassment or ridicule.
  6. Having intellectual reasons for maintaining the status quo.
  7. Being unaware of information to support the need for change.
  8. Being unconvinced by the necessity for change.
  9. Having blockages or perturbations in their energy fields.
  10. Having a life story that does not leave room for change or evolution.
  11. Being unaware of the rewards that flow from changing.
  12. Not knowing how to harness resources to accomplish change.

What are your roadblocks to emotional, personal and spiritual freedom?  What is the first step in creating positive changes in your life?
