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.
