Something that is insidious and making our lives harder than they need to be without us even realizing it, is interference.
This is when something keeps getting in the way, making it more difficult for you to reach your goals. When you feel resistance to incorporating a new habit or making a bold decision. When you question yourself and your abilities so you don’t take risks with the confidence you’d like to.
The concept really breaks down into something very simple, which is communicated in the word itself. Interference is just “fear” getting between where you are and where you want to go.
And it’s powerful. Fear is a paralyzing emotion. But often when we feel resistance, restriction, or limitation, we don’t always label it as fear. But that’s really what it is - If you are having a tough time doing something new it’s because you’re afraid of what might happen in the uncomfortable, unfamiliar space it would require you to enter.
My mentor David Meltzer says that overcoming interference is our greatest opportunity for getting everything we want. We don’t need more of anything, we are already connected to abundance and more than we’ll ever need. The reason why we don’t have what we want is we’re getting in our own way from accessing what’s already there.
In other words, there's too much interference preventing us from tapping into abundance.
Fear is a form of self-sabotage. It’s a story that the mind produces to prevent you from taking some new action or thinking in some new way that threatens the way you currently see the world. In treating it as such, what you must do is take action despite the self-sabotage, overcome the resistance until you become who you want to be, and have faith that the right things will come to be as a result.
And if it doesn’t go how you expected - Dave Meltzer has another perspective. The universe always gives you what you asked for or better, and it’s just a lack of awareness that is keeping you from seeing how that is true.
