Today, just a little something about the concept of detachment.
I think the easy parts about manifesting / creating those things that we want in our lives is the desire and the imagining. Those are the fun parts. For me the hard part is detachment.
Often we get attached to how it is going to come to us, or when, or where. And of course, this stops the flow. We get in our own way.
The secret is in the allowing and with the allowing comes the "letting go".
To give you an example from my own life, several years ago, after being very happily single, I finally felt that I was ready for a committed relationship. I was happy, enjoying my independence and the wonderful home I had made for myself. However, I had arrived at the place of wanting to share my blessings with someone else. It felt like the right time in my life and so I simply made the decision to open my heart and allow it in.
I remember it was on a Saturday morning that I went over to my balcony window, with a view of the Rocky mountains, and stated my intention, more like an order, to the Universe. There were three things (which I am not going to get into here) that I knew I wanted in this person and so I added those to my order.
I was very clear and clean about what I wanted. I was totally unattached to the outcome. I was already living a happy, fulfilled life with loving and supportive friends and work that I enjoyed. This person would really only be the icing on the cake. He would definitely not be the actual cake. And so I stated my intention and I just let it go.
Later in the day, I got the feeling to go into my office, which was unusual for a Saturday. I had completely forgotten that I had put in my order that morning and the rest as they say is history. We have been together ever since.
I simply had a very clear desire about what I wanted, with no attachment to the outcome. I was happy and grateful for what I already had in my life. And viola! Instant Manifestation!
I am reminded here of a brilliant poem written by Rev. Safire Rose entitled "She Let Go" and these words: "In the space of letting go, she let it all be. A small smile came over her face. A light breeze blew through her. And the sun and the moon shone forevermore. "
Perhaps today, right now, is the time to finally just let go, and let it all be.
