Now let go and initiate your bat sonar (also known as intuition)
It’s a spoiled, difficult toddler.
It clings like a burr on corduroy pants.
Detachment is faith.
Detachment means letting go of control.
Detachment is freedom.
I practice detachment.
It changed my life.
Let me explain.
10 years ago I set an intention for myself to be happier, which I hoped would
make me healthier, which I hoped would free me from the self imposed
nightmare I was stuck in. However, I didn’t attach any numbers, time lines, or
expectations on myself. I would not set myself up for failure. With small changes
made over time, I would accept whatever the outcome was. I remember saying to
myself that maybe I could lose fifty pounds and that would be amazing. But I
detached myself from what the end result would be and let this new thinking run
it’s course. I let go and let my body do what it needed to do. Clearly my body
knew better than I because eventually eighty pounds came off. Imagine if I would
have stopped at fifty! Job done…….wipe my hands……back to old habits and old
thought patterns. I never dreamed that my body was happiest right here at this
size. So by sticking with the intention and letting go, I have remained at this
weight. A couple of pounds come and go every now and again…you know
hormones, holidays, etc. There’s no perfection here…..this is real life.
I want to emphasize the mindpower that you hold over yourself. Willpower will
only take you so far and for so long. Figure out what makes you tick and develop
your own strategic trickiness. True happiness has to come before permanent,
long lasting weight loss can happen.
And now I shall cast a lovely little spell on your soul and bless you with being
creative and wily in ways that benefit your BE-ing! *POOF!
I leave you with a song lyric from that great 70’s band, America:
“You can do magic. You can have anything that you desire.”
