Are you trying too hard?
Have you ever been in a situation where you want something and it just keeps moving away from you? You reach out, make phone calls, emails, texts, offer meals, massages and yet the object of your desire keeps disappearing.
Well try this....
Sit quietly and pull all your energy in – like a vacuum cleaner collecting the dust in its central bag. Acknowledge what you are wanting and how you are feeling. Love, intimacy, a job, a solution to a problem, a hot bath, extra help, respect, or
someone to spend time with. Really feel the ache, desire,
loneliness, emptiness.... whatever you feel, sit in it for a minute
or two. Name it out loud.
Then imagine that you are in a place where there is abundance all around you. Aladdin’s cave, a place in nature, or somewhere plush and full of riches. Sit back in your chair and relax. Let go of your wanting, and see everything there already.... you smiling and enjoying your job, you relaxing in a bath, friends, emotional support, gifts, nurturing. Relax and let go. Put out a request in this abundant place: “send me what I need”.
Then be open to receiving exactly what you need. It may not be what you THINK you need, but it will be exactly what you do need. Let go of your desire and just get on with your day. Don’t even think about it anymore, know that it has been given and will arrive when the time is right.
Stop sending out texts and emails. Stop reaching out. Just be open and allow what comes. Be prepared for the unexpected and go with it when it comes.
