The law of non resistance

The Law of Non Resistance is about surrendering to the flow of life.

Resistance creates an opposing force, with which we will inevitably struggle—it’s human nature. The more we struggle against what we don’t want, the stronger it grows.

When we resist, we are directing negative energy towards what we are resisting, making it more difficult to resolve the problem. In effect, we are focusing on the resistance, and whatever we focus on expands!

What you resist, persists.

The law of non resistance in practice

Here are a few tips to help you put the law of non-resistance into practice:

Be aware of what you think and say.

Avoid using or even thinking words like “don’t”, “can’t”, “won’t”, or “not” to resist something negative. Instead, use words like “I am,” “I deserve,” and “I embrace” to attract something positive.

Be aware of your energy and ensure that it flows.

Do guided meditations regularly to train your mind to go with the flow of life.

Respond, don’t react.

When you react, you lose. When you respond, you win. 

Acknowledge the problem(s).

The best way to approach any problem is to first recognize it. You must see the situation as it is and not ignore any aspect of it. 

When you recognize a problem, you completely surrender to it. That means you’re telling yourself, “I know I have a problem.” This allows you to see the situation for what it truly is. Whatever action you take in response to the acknowledgment will be correct, because acting from a state of acknowledgment provides positive energy.

Take positive action.

When you take positive action to solve a problem, your problem will likely be solved because when you send out positive energy, you will receive positive energy in return. 


When you notice yourself resisting, ask yourself if you can accept and forgive the situation, thing, or person you are resisting. Feel it in your body and breathe through it until the resistance is gone. You’ll know you’ve succeeded when you feel lighter, freer, more aligned, and expanded.

Let it go.

Learn to let go of your fears and limiting beliefs, and have faith that the universe is always working in your favor.

Step away.

If you can’t see a way to solve a problem, step away from it for a while. When you return to it, the problem may have solved itself or you have fresh ideas that will lead you to the solution of a problem. However, this will only happen if you leave the problem unsolved with a calm mind rather than worrying about it all day.
