We’ve all worked with detachment, but what happens when you really hone in on what you’re attached to in the every day bits and pieces of life? Silence, that’s what.
A feeling of temporary paralysis has taken over. I’m committed to speaking from a place of truth, but first I have to find it. In the interim, I am silent. I pause between thoughts. I restrain my jaw muscles from opening and emanating sound.
Here is an example of how this works. Two of my most beloved friends are packing up a truck and driving to Palm Springs today from Seattle. This morning I realized I did not send them my well wishes. I did not say “Safe Journey!” I did not instruct them to drive slow, don’t rush, enjoy the scenery as I normally would have. It’s a lovely thought, no? To show your friends you care?
Before I sent a text to them this morning, I took pause. WHY am I sending the text? Because I love them. WHY is it important for them to they know I love them? Because they are dear friends and I want them to love me back.
BOOM. If I’m sending the text as motivation to reciprocate love, I’m manifesting from a place of need/lack. The opposite side of need/lack is abundance. The world IS LOVE. It’s accessible to all of us every day. There is no separation between our earth and heaven – we are all one and have access to the universal life flow. We just keep ourselves small. I used to think it was to learn lessons and now I don’t know why.
Regardless, I sat in meditation trying to find a place of neutrality. A certain calm came over me. The muscles in my chest relaxed. I thought – they know I love them, I don’t need to confirm this. And I felt neutral. It is from THIS place that I may text and say Safe Journey.
But, suddenly, in my vibrational neutrality, I found I didn’t need to make the effort at all. They know. I know. All is love.
