No matter what it is that you may create, there will always be opposition.
Accepting this truth does not come without its grief and frustration. The fear of judgment is not easy to deny or avoid because we are creators. We are builders. We are healers and light workers. We are seeking and questioning.
The desire to please others comes attached to the limiting belief that our worth is based on approval. When we shift from the desire to please others to pleasing ourselves, our creations will become solely attached to a positive outcome rather than one filled with anxiety and frustration.
False Truths & Limiting Beliefs:
- If no one likes this then I have failed
- I need the approval of my family and friends before this can work or grow
- I can’t deal with a negative comment or review
- I have failed if I don’t get XX sales, likes, or interactions
- My family or friends disagree, so I am wrong
- It is not okay to have an idea, belief, or thought that differs from those in my circle
- Successful creators have had little or no opposition
You may be able to insert many of your own personal false beliefs that you have experienced as you’ve created and connected with your best self. Each of these limiting beliefs will continue to foster the negative opposition that you are allowing to be present.
Battling these false truths require tools you already have access to, and are the foundations of your best self.
Stand guard over your positive thoughts. What you put out there is what you are setting yourself up for. If you choose to create, then fear that what you’ve done is not good enough or people might not like what you’ve done, then you are opening the channels for a negative outcome. Practice positive affirmation and thought patterns and then guard those thoughts diligently.
Own your creation, your effort, and your results. When opposition arises it can push us to a place of shrinking and fear. The questions begin of purpose and correctness. Own your place and contribution as you wade through these emotions. Stand with what you have done, and continue to guard the positive flow that inspired you from the beginning.
Opposition is rarely about you. In some cases, depending on the situation, you may find a genuine concern from a loved one. This can be noted, appreciated, and covered in love and light. Even when from a good place, it doesn’t always mean it’s what works for you or requires action.
There are negative spaces that others manifest in the form of opposition. Whatever these negative spaces, such as jealousy or fear, they are not a reflection of you, your work, or belief system.
Keep your power, it is not for others to control. The power is in your hands to attract and offer strength and positivity. The opposition can be stopped at the gate and never be given permission to enter your field of consciousness. Gratitude, love, and grace can be yours without anyone’s permission.
