Lightbulb Moment

When the inner fight ceases to be
and you let go what the fight
was all about in the first place,
being absolutely settled
in your Heart as well
you come to a place known as,
“It matters not anymore to me.”
You’re liberated, your free
making you feel
100 pounds lighter.
You begin to move on with your life
leaving that fight far in the past
no, not even bothering
to think on it in the least …
And then one day
to your complete astonishment
the very thing you had been fighting about
easily without struggle without prior notice
happens just like that … boom!
as your mouth opens wide collecting flies

Darn it if every time I tell you all I’m taking time out, my Heart has different ideas.  I surrender!  Done!  If and when I come back to WP after taking a wee bit of time off, I’ll keep my lips sealed to avoid the “mud on face” I now seem to have.  Last week was an extremely difficult one for me and I really thought I’d be taking time out longer then I did.  Suffice it to say, I really don’t know from one moment to the next what my Life will be like.  What an adventure, to say the least.

Anyways, there is a story on how this saying came into BEing …

For months, and I mean months, I have had an inner fight in me, a grrrrrrrrr if you will, because no matter what M. did, (the beautiful young woman who does my hair), red just wouldn’t happen as we both would have liked.  Either that or the red would fall out with shampooing.  I screamed inside …. I want red!  I never did see the red I wanted.

Several weeks ago I told a friend I am so done with red, no more, my hair just doesn’t want it.  And with that statement I felt a release of that inner grrrrrrrrr setting me free of that inner fight.  Now I had to figure out what color I would like to see in those soft locks of mine.  I knew it would come.  Again I just let it be not giving the matter another thought for a while.

Then, in looking into a mirror a few days back, I saw the golden locks upon my head and said to myself, hmmmmm, that looks nice.  I like that color!  I decided right there I would like that color so that is what I told M.  I set up an appointment with her with every intention of only having my roots touched up along with a slight trim.  M. decided to put some toner on my hair to address the “too blonde sections” in my hair.  OK.  No prob.

When it came time to washing my hair out I saw a stunned look upon M.’s face.  What?  I asked her.  She replied,  “You’re red, your hair is red just the way we have wanted it to be all these months.  OH MY GOSH!  How did this happen?”  I said no way.  Oh come on!  But when I looked into the mirror my jaw dropped just as hers had done, seeing red in my hair for the first time just the way I had dreamed it would look.  Still sitting in her beauty chair, I realized as soon as you let go of the inner grrrrrrrrrr that is when what you wish to be comes to you in a way you would never have foreseen.

Life is so ironic.  But this Lightbulb Moment really has me thinking how many other aspects of my Life I still have inner fight with.  Is it really as easy as this?  Seems it is for the saying goes, “We attract what we are.”  In the fighting within our Hearts we in actuality block the very things we would like to be in our lives.  Wow!  Think about that.  How could we attract anything when our energy is in conflict?  Just not possible from where I see.

And oh, I told M. right now before you forget think how you got my hair red.  What did you do different this time?  And in thinking I was told the sequence of the hair products she used was different.  I asked if she wrote down her discovery.  “Oh yes, Ma’am, yes!!”, she said.  So not only did a Lightbulb Moment occur but a new learning experience for this beautiful young friend occurred as well.  (smile)

    1. Not sure, Miriam. But the honest to Pete astonishment I felt after months of trying to get that red in my hair and then without even meaning to getting it, well it really makes me think! Big wow for real! 💖🌹💖

      1. You know, sometimes the harder we try the less likely something it’s going to happen. And then when we stop trying, well … it does make you think. 🌹

  1. I agree with your Mom Amy, we need to see a photo of you with this exact red color, as you wished to get for such a long time 😀
    I’m sure, that just to let go about many worries, help us to open up, so we can receive, what we really wish to attract.
    Love ❤

  2. So pleased for you Amy.. And yes I feel the more we want something to occur in life, the more the universe delivers and says so they want… So lets deliver their wish.. And the universe keeps delivering… our WANT.. So we keep on wanting..
    I have seen this happen again an again on childless couples, who say they want a baby so so much.. yet never seem to conceive.. The moment they give up and say that’s it, we will adopt or stop trying.. The Universe then gives them what they have been desiring..
    Its a little like what we know about manifesting Amy.. Its the focus upon the ‘Intention’ of our desire.. When we say we want.. We are kept wanting.. When we give in or look at life as if we already have everything.. Then it appears into our lives..
    Its amazing… 🙂
    And I am so happy those Grrrrrs have gone…
    Happy Days my friend.. 🙂 xxx And Enjoy the New YOU of your Desires.. 🙂

    1. This was such a huge revelation to me, Sue, because I don’t think I really ever completely got to the place of just shrugging and agreeing, this is it, so be it. Well consistly that is. I’ve gotten to that place before then life tips me upside down and the tug of war begins again wishing things were different. Now, to stay in that space of honesty and completely accepting what you have in your life now and just move on without further thought, that is when magic happens. This has so blown me away that when the realization came, I just sat in that chair really really stunned to my core. We are the ones who push things away by our thoughts, our actions, our doubts. This goes beyond gratitude. This is just a complete surrender to what is and then stepping away from it.
      And yes I hear countless stories of when couples really give up trying, they conceive. Interesting …. This just fascinates me!!! ❤ ❤ ❤

      1. Another story from yesterday that ties in with this train of thought. I was feeling free, not caring what my hair looked like as I was driving over to M’s for my appt. I had not fussed with it just pulled it back with some Barrett’s. I had no makeup on either and with that I didn’t care either. I am me, folks, I was saying! At a red light I felt eyes on me. I look over and saw this guy staring at me. Oh wow. I got so nervous that when I went to drive when the light turned green, I popped the clutch. I stalled my car. LOL I drive a manual. Tee hee …….. Too funny. And then I refused to get embarrassed but I stayed far away from that man who I caught staring. Too funny …..

      2. I think those of us who drive a manual have from time to time often stalled the car… And nothing worse when at a set of Lights. 🙂 I hope you blushed..to take the stare as a compliment.. 🙂
        Sometimes Amy we need no makeup or our hair all done.. What others see is your internal SHINE.. 🙂 Keep shining your Light Amy.. 🙂 And now its a grander shade of Red.. 🙂

      3. Oh that happens often to me, I don’t know what keys I press while typing but sometimes I manage to delete the whole lot before I press send.. So when I now think I am going to do a long reply I use my little notebook tool 🙂 The Hearts I know came from your heart.. xxx ❤

  3. They always say “sometimes you’re trying too hard” – I wouldn’t know about hair colro (I barely know about hair), but it’s true in a lot of things in life. Enjoy the happy color, Amy.

    1. Yep that’s me, Dan, trying too hard. I’ve been having discussions about this with myself and darn, I’m weary of trying so hard. Perhaps in the letting go life will go smoother? I’m examining so much right now and where I feel it appropriate I’m changing my attitude. And here I was all set on my golden locks. Really. And now red. Go figure. LOL ❤

    1. I think you misunderstood, YellowCable. I had an inner fight going on trying to get red in my hair when my hair seemed not to want it. When I let the fight go and without even trying I got red in my hair. I’m now applying this principle to the rest of my life. 🙂 ❤

    1. I’m coming right along, Amy. As my Vet told me this morning, “You’re killing yourself with what you are doing for your cats.” And that is only one aspect of my life. I’m determined to get back to the gym starting this Tuesday and get more walking in. I was hit from so many directions a little while back at once I was spinning. Thank goodness life is evening out giving me space to breathe once again. This is good. 🙂 ❤

    1. I’m applying what I learned here to the rest of my life. When emotions are high or weariness at hand, easier said then done. But now that I understand this concept, oh wow, come on let’s do this!!! YES! 🙂 ❤

  4. I love it Amy…and that is how it is supposed to happen, so you can understand and then really ‘appreciate’ what it took to find you. And a Self Love my friend because of it…I bet the little inner smile is working overtime 😀 ❤

    1. I have been working overtime, Mark, setting right to flow what had been fight. This kind of discovery doesn’t fade away. This is lifetime made where opportunities arise giving me a chance to free me even more. How exciting!! 🙂 ❤

    1. I so agree with you, Robert. The challenge lies in eliminating the grrrrrrr for good and not going back to the tug of war when emotions ride high or exhaustion wears you down. This really was a huge revelation for me, one that will stay with me my whole life!! 🙂 ❤

    1. I most certainly did, Susan. Today was a really tough day having to take Rocky in to our Vet again searching for answers. So my joy level is seriously lacking. He did wonderfully even though we had to stay there for 2 hours due to tests but the real kicker was some of our babes at home SO upset …. this was still just too soon to do since Karma’s death. Between a hard place and a hard rock. It’s now or never for Rocky because he just cannot go on as he is even though I am basically running myself into the ground. I pray for answers, anything that we can go on so that we can improve his treatment plan. Don’t mind me today, dear friend. Even our Vet noticed how wiped I’ve become. Taking it slower then usual … my MOJO coming back sooner then later. 🙂 ❤
