WTF! Resist?

What the fuck

What. The. fuck.

Whaaaat am I even writing? Is this writing? Is spelling out WTF writing?

OK. Breath. Don't check Facebook. Don't look at that news alert. Ignore the rage. The world is ending. I hate everyone. Wait what? WTF!!!!

Did you get that part out of your system yet? Yea, me neither.

I'm still resisting.

Resist seems to be everywhere. I knew it was going to be a new word the moment I saw those guys hoist up a crane with a banner reading “resist” upstaging the White House.

What is resisting? What does it mean to resist? What does that do to me when I actively resist something? What does it do to my mind, body, and spirit?

My mind wanders to the moment Oprah had Rhonda Byrne, author of the book "The Secret," on her show. I vaguely remember this concept of resisting and the words "law of attraction." Oprah, man. Whatever, let's look it up.

According to, "One of the greatest hindrances in working with the Law of Attraction is a little thing called RESISTANCE. At its core, resistance is nothing more than negative thoughts that trigger corresponding negative emotions. As simple as that explanation may be, overcoming the problems it can cause is a little more complex."

Tell me about it.

Well, let's get away from the law of attraction (if that's even possible) for a second, and define resistance:

1. the refusal to accept or comply with something.

Example: They displayed a narrow-minded resistance to change.

synonyms: opposition to, hostility to, aversion to, refusal to accept, unwillingness to accept, disinclination to accept, reluctance to accept, lack of enthusiasm for

Example: They displayed a narrow-minded resistance to change.

2. the ability not to be affected by something, especially adversely

The first definition is like "yes!" The second definition is like "but I AM adversely affected by what's happ-en-ing in the world. Hello!"

What are we resisting anyways? Really.

If you believe words are powerful, then we should be having this conversation. So, what's the reverse of "resist?” What's the other option that relates to how I'm feeling and what I need to do and how am I going to organize people? And what if people don't like that new word or it's too liberal, or nice, or not clear, or not inclusive?”

What kind of word will allow people to take control, to feel resolve, to make progress in a world of multiple realities, and no one truth? In a world where people call you snowflake, who think you are overreacting, and who tell you that you are brainwashed?

WTF? Breath, don't check Facebook. Ignore the rage. The world is ending, I hate everyone.

Maybe these words are leading me down a semantics rabbit hole to nowhere. But let's look at what the law of attraction has to say about this. I mean Oprah is totally into it.

Let’s suppose you created an intention to manifest something, visualized in the proper way, opened your heart energy, and nothing happened. Your intention failed to manifest quickly because you had resistance.

Whenever your intention fails to manifest quickly, it’s because you aren’t a vibrational match to your intention. Instead, you’re a vibrational match to things remaining the same…and you probably don’t even realize it.

Resistance usually takes the form of subconscious fears and doubts. You don’t even realize they’re there. Yet, they sit in the background and prevent your desires from manifesting. They act as counter-intentions and the more attention and energy you give them, the harder it is to manifest what you want.

I repeat: They act as counter-intentions and the more attention and energy you give them, the harder it is to manifest what you want.

The harder it is to manifest what you want. Manifest what you want. Manifest. Manifest.

What's the definition of Manifest?


clear or obvious to the eye or mind

2. Verb

show (a quality or feeling) by one's acts or appearance; demonstrate

Wait. So what I'm telling myself is that we need to be demonstrating and showing what is maybe obvious? What is obvious to us? That all people deserve to be treated as equal human beings? That all people deserve to be free? That war is bad? That climate change is real? That you can`t drink oil and you can`t eat paper money? What if we manifested the solutions to what we know to be obviously true, instead of resisting what others force us to accept as their truth? What could that look like? What are the possibilities when we stop resisting reality and we start manifesting reality?

Could that be manifesting new politicians from our neighbors and friends? Could that be starting a group? Does that mean creating a new economy? Could that mean supporting organic agriculture? Does that mean chasing your dream and travelling the world? Does that mean not paying taxes? Does that mean using reusable energy? Does that mean giving revolutionary love? What does manifesting reality look like for you? When I say manifest, what do you say?

Imagine a reality filled with what you want in it; not trying to keep out what you don’t want.

I don't know what it looks like to you. But I can guarantee that if you're reading this you're going to figure it out. I'm figuring it out too. I can promise you, I will figure it out for me. I'm going to manifest reality for me so that you can enjoy it too. I’m going to demonstrate so that you can do it too. You will figure it out for you. In your own beautiful way, you will figure it out. When you do, be confident and manifest something great; something incredible. Because ultimately truth is just a reflection of what is manifested from you and me.
