7 Signs You are In Resistance. Resistance is a Shapeshifter.

 Resistance is a Shapeshifter.Resistance is not something you can point at. It is not visible. Just like gravity, we see the results of it, but we cannot put it in a jar and show it to you. Try to point to resistance, where is it? It’s in the air.

Most people want you to be “normal” or to “fit in”, but that just means giving up your personal freedom and conforming or becoming invisible.
