Did you know that you could integrate new elements such as phrasal verbs, idioms or verb tenses using "creation" to help bypass the resistance for change.
First, you must understand that when you learn a new language there are two types of resistance: one that slows you down, the other which fills you up with creative energy helping you process new data.
"Reaction" resists evolution and prevents you from learning new English elements. It actually makes you "believe" that you cannot or don't want to learn something new. "Creation" resists and destroys the inertia which is slowing you down to a stop in your quest for English mastery - it propels you higher, above that opposing force.
To put it simply, reaction or creation can arise when your English trainer proposes a new element for you to assimilate.
If it brings about "creation" it means that you will be creative in integrating the data. You will be open-minded to that new piece of information. The information will enter your brain and not be labeled in any way as you will be "opened." You will assimilate that element as if miraculously because your conscience will act as a funnel receiving the idiom or phrasal verb.
On the other hand, if it brings about "reaction," as soon as the notion of something new is formulated by your teacher you will oppose resistance subconsciously. First, whatever is proposed will be polarized. That means that instead of accepting it neutrally, a part of you will label it and attach a judgment to the idiom for example.
That's when you'll need to be extra careful about your state of mind because if you react instead of creating that part of you which resists change will temporarily have control over you. Since it will be holding you under some sort of hypnosis, it will suggest reasons why you should reject that new information. "Reaction" means that it's not working in unison with the outside world.
It will impose itself on you and your mind will feel heavy, negative and words such as "this is too hard, I don't feel like doing this, we never use these expressions in English" will flow out of your mouth. You will then be closed-minded and there won't be any funnel opened to receive such new information. You will feel as if you have no inspiration, no creativity and you will draw a blank being blocked by mental inertia.
The good news is that it's not going to be "you" who is resisting, it'll be that lazy part of you which doesn't want to expose itself as vulnerable; thus, offering resistance.
You must manage to take a step back and become aware of that negative energy controlling you or shake yourself from that state of awoken sleepiness when your teacher points it out to you.
Subsequently, you will be living the moment and in a position to trigger that creation process where you will welcome the transfer of knowledge. It will feel like an explosion blasting down the walls of inertia.
