As promised, this blog is going to lead you through the process on getting unattached to your self image and making changes in your life. You can change. There is no reason why you cannot change, except for you. You are the only thing in the way. So lets move out of the way. Let us practice non-attachment with our very selves, so that we can live the life we were meant to live!
Write in your journal a complete description of your self image. Describe yourself in detail, telling about your hair, your eye color, your weight, and the way that you dress. Write about any detail that comes to mind in describing yourself. Make sure to include all the things in your life that you are unhappy with, all the things you would like to change. Write about how you feel, write about the things in your life that you like, the people in your life that you like. You can write this as if it were a list, or you can write to your hearts desire, as many pages as it takes, but get a full and complete description of how you see yourself. Who are you? Tell me about you.
Describe to me in full detail how you would like for your life to be. Everything and anything goes, and nothing is too outrageous. How would you dress? How much would you weigh? How would you wear your hair? Where would you work? Where would you live? Tell me everything in detail. Be as detailed as possible with this step, because this is how the Universe works. If we are unclear about what we want, the Universe will not know what to do.
Seek ways in which you can go ahead and be the person you described in Step 2.
I am not afraid to share with you my own personal experience with this exercise, and sharing mine with you, may help you to better understand this third step.
The “me I want to be” is very wealthy. He is a giver. He dresses a certain way, he eats certain foods, he has several houses in several states and country’s. He’s an author, a healer, a Spiritual teacher, he works for God. He is happy and vibrant. He is very loving and kind. He plays music, he is an artist, he travels, and anyone who comes into contact with him, receives healing.
So the first thing I did was go to Goodwill and buy some short sleeved linen shirts, and some light colored pants. I began to dress as if I were the guy in my Step 2. Then I began to eat different foods. I began to eat the kind of food that the Step 2 guy would eat. I began to talk like him. I began to act as he would act when I was speaking with others, no matter if it was with friends, co-workers, or with the cashier at the grocery store. I began to write a book. I began going to school and learning healing techniques. I began holding meditations, traveling to different cities and leading workshops. I try an remain healthy and happy and vibrant, and I offer healing vibrations to everyone I meet or come into contact with. I rarely wear the color black anymore, and when I do, it is when I’m painting and it is a shirt that I can mess up. I write in my journal and anywhere else with a blue pen, and not black. I have changed my behavior with my wife, my behavior towards work. I have gone ahead and become this person who I described in my Step 2 as much as possible right now. Am I perfectly him yet? No. You would probably not look at my bank account and deem me “wealthy”. However, I have lost fear and insecurity about money, and I FEEL WEALTHY. Do I have tough moments? Tough days? Do I still have some less than desirable habits that the guy in Step 2 does not have? Yes. But look at me go!!!
Many blessings to you, and I look forward to hearing from you.
