On a beautiful sunny day I was walking along the beach, returning to my beach bungalow when I saw a group of my friends from the nearby yoga centre, they were worried. The yoga teacher had lost the key to the yoga centre, it was a beautiful antique key for an antique padlock from Tibet. There were only 2 keys, the owner had one & the other was for whichever yoga teacher was taking the next class. Losing the key was a big problem for them. She knew where she had walked since she had last had the key, she had walked between the yoga centre & the beach. She felt so terrible for her boss, she didn't want to have lost the key that had sentimental value to him. More people joined the search for the key. I needed to go buy some food, so as I walked the stretch of path between the beach & the yoga centre, I casually looked down, hoping to find it, but I didn't.
On my way back with my food, they were still searching for it & as I got closer to my beach bungalow I glanced to the right of the path & there was an antique key on a piece of ribbon. I picked it up & skipped back to the yoga centre with it to give it back to them. They were so grateful.
I explained that you can't find what you believe is lost. So even though many people had looked at that section of the path, they hadn't found it because they believed it lost. But it was more than that. They were all very emotionally involved with the lost key. They were worried, they felt terrible. I wasn't emotionally involved in it, I was carrying on with my day after a casual attempt to find it & I had let it go. This is why I could see it there on the path when others couldn't.
I was reminded of this story last week by the still very grateful yoga centre owner. But again, reminded of it today, this time by my higher self as a key to helping me with my life right now.
There are two things in my life I am struggling with right now, I am totally emotionally involved in them. I'm worried, I'm fighting it, I'm not accepting of either of them, I'm trying to control it, I'm trying to change it & both are completely lost to me. I can't see the key on the path. I'm too emotionally involved in it.
I know that I need to let go. I even know that everything is ok & will be ok, with both of them, because they always are. But still I am struggling with this emotional involvement, which is keeping the manifestation of what I want to come about easily. I'm struggling to let go & allow the key to reveal itself.
So I ask my higher self for some help. What can I do to let go?
This was the response: Refocus on something else that you don't have a problem with, one step at a time, every time you find yourself focused on what is worrying you again, refocus on something else.
How often do you stay focused on the struggle, on the things in your life that you are emotionally involved in, thinking that you can figure it out? Has that ever worked for you? Or is it only when you have let go of it, surrendered, that what you wanted manifested with ease?
It's time to focus on something else, on something that is easy, on something that you're not worried about, on something simple, like getting your dinner, like taking care of yourself, those easy things that have no emotional attachments, knowing that the universe will show you the key that you have been looking for in good time.
