Being fluid means to go with the flow, without resistance; it’s about movement, continuity, flowing from one step to the next. Without limits or boundaries, fluids spread out in any direction it can go or is allowed to go.

This month’s mandala asks us to take a look at areas in our lives where resistance dams up the flow of that which we want to manifest.

Resistance (fear) takes on many disguises and usually boils down to just these two main concepts:

  • lack of confidence/low self-esteem

Surprisingly, lack of self-confidence is not necessarily related to lack of ability. Instead, it is often the result of focusing too much on the unrealistic expectations or standards of others, especially parents and society.

…While self-confidence is the knowledge that you can succeed at something, self-esteem is the capacity to like and love your self, and feel worthwhile, irrespective of all the ups and downs of life. It is your values, beliefs and personal philosophy by which you define your personal worth.

  • convenient excuses

From Wayne W. Dyer’s book: Excuses Begone!: How to Change a Lifelong, Self-Defeating Thinking Habit he offers this description of “convenient excuses”:

Next Step

Instead of ignoring these inner “dams of resistance”, it’s time to acknowledge their presence, face them, and then ask them “why are you here?” and “what can I do release you?”

When we stop opposing reality, action becomes simple, fluid, kind, and fearless.
– Byron Katie

Surprising answers await us when we ask!

Ponder this as we color this month’s mandala.

Happy Coloring!
