Acceptance Is KEY To Letting Go
Hey everybody. I learned about The Secret about a year and a half ago, and I just wanted to share something that I have found SO HELPFUL, which of course is acceptance. Here are two stories where ACCEPTING where I was, was exactly what I needed to change it:
1. On the Friday before my 16th birthday, I was going to out for a movie with my friends, and it was the only time I would have to celebrate my birthday. I was feeling pretty good that day, until suddenly I got called into work. I said yes, even though I REALLY didn’t want to. In fact, after I hung up the phone I felt like I suddenly got torn out of my vortex (vortex, for those of you who don’t know, just means a feeling-place where you feel joy). I decided if I didn’t change the way I felt then my evening would only get worse. So I pulled out a notebook and basically reached for better feeling thoughts until I was OKAY and even HAPPY about going to work. I said things like, “My co-workers are nice and funny.” And, “I will have plenty of birthdays to make up for this.” Ten minutes later I was just getting ready to go when they called me and said they didn’t need me! I was so happy! It was better than I had intended!
2. My parents are divorced, and this is pretty normal for me. At my Dad’s place I have a wonderful cat, who I promise you is unlike any cat you’ve ever met. So ever since last summer I noticed the way my Dad has been treating my cat has only gotten worse. I’ve seen him kick it, lock it in the basement, yell at it, and threaten to get rid of it. He is a very sociable cat, and always needs to be around people, which my Dad finds annoying. Every time I witnessed this, it also would just pull me straight out of my vortex. But this time I looked at it as a challenge. Life was trying to teach me to not let these things bother me.
So first I searched on YouTube for some clips of Abraham-Hicks on this subject (they were featured in the original version of The Secret). And then I pulled out my notebook and convinced myself once again that this was not such a bad thing, my Dad was only doing this because he was unhappy, and I should not use it as an excuse to be unhappy. I didn’t expect anything to stop, I only decided I wouldn’t let it bother me. Then this week I came out here for five days, and let me tell you, my Dad hasn’t done anything mean to my cat! Once again, it was better than I had intended.
I hope someone somewhere has gotten something out of this. Best wishes to everyone and happy manifesting!
