How many of you remember this line? "Resistance is Futile.  You will be assimilated."  

It's a well-known line from at least three different television shows.

Lost in Space ("Resistance is futile." said the aliens in Season 2, Episode 13, aired 1966)

Star Trek ("Resistance is futile.  You will be assimilated" said the Borg aliens.)

Dr. Who ("Resistance is futile" said the alien, season 14, episode 9 of 1976)


When we have negativity in our lives, we are creating it.  How???

When we ignore what we don't like.  When we try to cover-up what we don't like about ourselves, we are in resistance.

When we resist, we create negativity.  When we resist something about ourselves, we do not accept our whole selves.  We create negativity towards what we don't like about ourselves, and we project it on to others.  

Negativity such as, hating ourselves or a part of ourselves, is basically not accepting ourselves. =resistance.

When we have an experience that we do not like, we tend to resist it.  By doing so, we create negativity and remain in this negativity until we face it and accept it for what it is.  We are given experiences, whether we feel they are positive or negative, to grow spiritually.

An Example:  

Our MacDonald's has a small parking lot.  In fact, it is part of the lane that is used to drive around to the Drive-through.  So, when you are ready to leave the parking lot, you must watch carefully when you backup.  Otherwise, you may hit another car driving through.

Well, I was parked in this parking lot a few summers ago.  I wanted to backup, and so I looked left and right behind me.

No one was coming.  It was wide open to back up.  And so, I did. 

 Within seconds, another car had zoomed in and parked in the driving lane right behind me.  Within those seconds, I had backed up and hit the car behind me.  I did not see the car drive up at all!

The only thing I could figure is, I had a black-out zone in my vehicle.  So, when I checked to see if I could go, I may have missed the car coming into the lot/driving lane due to a black-out zone caused by my vehicle’s interior beams.

It was a hard pill to swallow, but I accepted that I backed up into another car that was behind me.

I accepted it, apologized to the other person, called the police to report it and exchanged insurance information. 

It was hard to accept this.  I wanted to blame the other person for driving behind me and parking in a driving lane, while I was trying to back out.  I accepted my own blame.  And so, I was able to release the negativity about this.

I was able to find the positive side of this.  I learned to not park in this parking lot anymore.  I owned-up to my part in the incident.  And I learned to "let it go", cheerfully.  Things happen in life!  It's how we react to them that will create pain or suffering.

Resisting this experience would of caused a lot more pain to me and the other person.  It would have dragged out more-the suffering.  It could of been a legal battle that would of cost thousands of dollars.  

In the end, it was a hard thing to do, but the right thing to do-accept it happened and accept I had a part in it.

Everything we resist will persist! =Negativity.  Negative energy.

Going back to the lines, Resistance is futile.  You will be assimilated.

This reminds me of the Universe.  The Universe is teaching all of us how to be a better version of ourselves.  Remember, we are all in Earth school here.  Which means we may be all on different levels of schooling here.

Years ago, I had a dream of being shown all the cities of USA were on fire.  Whole cities were burning.  My family and I were isolating away from the public and fires.

Then when COVID hit, I had wondered if this dream of all the cities on fire was a symbol of COVID.

After all, if you think of it, COVID has been rampaging through city after city and then all the cities at the same time.  Purifying/fire?  What is being purified?   I think the way we perceive and think.

It's given us time to learn to be alone and accept this.  It's given us time to work on ourselves, whether to become better at what we like to do or simply become better people.

It has slowed down society from its usual hustle and bustle.

To be assimilated means to become part of the collective.  Maybe, the Universe has been teaching us how to become better people.  How to help each other in need.  How to be there for ourselves as well as others.  And how to ask for help when we need help.

Resistance is futile.  You will be assimilated.

Resisting love is futile because in the end, you and I will be assimilated, whether the easy way or the hard way into a new and more accepting world.  A more harmonious world.

Remember, resistance only causes negativity in you.  Negativity, over some time, creates blockages in our energy systems.  When we have blocks, we have reduced or eliminated our energy flow.

  Thus, when this happens, we create a new, world of dis-ease for ourselves.  The physical and mental body will show the dis-ease as unhealthy issues in this physical world. This dis-ease is also known as discord.  Discord is unharmonious. We are all meant to be harmonious beings.  Discord sounds like a lot of wrong notes being played in music.  (Think of beginners in band on their instruments.)

People are thought to be like musical instruments.  Our whole beings produce beautiful music when we are in harmony with ourselves.  When we have negativity, we have discord.  (Wrong notes being played).  When we have harmony, there is beautiful music.

 So, to end this story, when you find yourself triggered by someone, instead of blaming them, try to just accept your emotions and pain you feel and let them go. Be grateful for being shown what you need to work on inside of yourself so you can release the pain.

So, when you find yourself not liking something and you push against it or you don't like something about yourself, remember.   Resistance is futile!  Learn to Accept it for what it is.

  • Make Reiki appointments:
  •  to help maintain health.  A Reiki session finds blockages in your energy system.  When Reiki is used, the energy breaks apart these blockages that can cause dis-ease.
  • to help with health issues.  Chronic and acute conditions may be helped.
  • to help with pain.  Chronic and acute pain may be helped by lessoning it.  Thus, it helps you use less or no pain killers.
  • to help with and support your ongoing medical program.  Many people are in a medical doctor's care for Chronic and acute conditions.  Reiki sessions can help by lessoning pain.  Reiki sessions can also help by helping you to relax.  By relaxing and allowing your body to heal, your recovery is sped up. 
  • Ask to have a Reiki session while in the Dentist office!  or during your medical operation.  Reiki can help by relaxation, helps with pain, and allows you to heal faster.  If you would like to have Reiki in the Prairie LLC in a medical procedure, you must get a written permission statement from your medical doctor who will be involved with it.
