THE SKILL OF RELEASING ATTACHMENT
Hello again Dear Friends,
I want to start off this month by welcoming all my new subscribers from around the world who were introduced to me by Neera Menon at www.onlyhappinesscounts.com . Her worldwide happiness video titled ‘Footsteps to Happiness’ has been a huge success and I have enjoyed meeting so many wonderful new people.
The things we want in life are indeed numerous and varied. From friends and relationships, to health and money, to spiritual enlightenment, the list is never ending and that’s typically what keeps us moving onward. Often times we want something so badly, and the very lack of it keeps us unhappy, unfulfilled and even depressed.
I have and continue to write and speak on the process of manifestation and by now most of you understand my concepts of syncing thoughts, emotions, words, and beliefs with the proper actions. If you’re doing all this (or at least trying) and still not getting the desired results perhaps you are so rigidly connected to the outcome that you actually, through extreme attachment, refuse to release the very energy that is needed to obtain your goal.
If indeed you embrace or are open to the above concept of creating through the energy and vibration of our emotions, thoughts, words, and beliefs than it only makes sense that for these energies and vibrations to work on your behalf they must be released to the Universe, and this is accomplished by releasing your attachment to the very thing you desire. This can be difficult to grasp so let me try and explain further.
The best personal example I can share is the manner in which I met by current wife Julie over twelve years ago. Going back to the year 2000, I was single and living in Albuquerque, NM. My previous marriage of over twenty years had ended about seven years earlier. After first enjoying the single life for a period of time, I came to realize that I preferred life with a singular partner, and I began to work hard at finding that person. On a physical level I made myself very available and energetically I worked diligently at lining up my thoughts, emotions, and words with what I wanted. Nobody was clearer or more attached to what they wanted then me!
After a few years and probably 50 dates I had to admit that my system for manifestation was not working. I remember clearly, on a cool fall evening, sitting alone in my outdoor hot tub and saying to myself “I’m done with the diligent and intense partner search, it’s not working out, and I’m just going to be happy being single until and if my partner arrives!” In other words, at that moment I released the attachment to my deepest desire.. .. and what happened next?
Within two weeks a friend in Colorado called me asking if she could introduce me to a beautiful single woman she had just met at her work. You can guess the rest of the story. Within two months of meeting Julie in Colorado we were living together in New Mexico and then got married the following year. This is a true wonderful story which taught me about the manifestation process and our attachment, and the need to release our desires to the Universe.
Be very clear on what you desire, then turn all physical and non physical energy in the direction of that want.. .. ..and then allow yourself to release this energy by not being attached to the outcome. This is the formula for manifestation and it takes practice!
We are all totally responsible for our physical experience here on Earth during our present incarnation. We all have ups and downs, contracts to fulfill, and lessons to be learned. Through it all we are the makers of our destiny and this is what I will continue to write, teach and speak about..
With love and appreciation,
