We hold on so tightly,
To the outcomes that we want.
Our fingers squeeze around them,
And our hold locks into place.
Our vision hones in on what’s within our grip,
And suddenly everything else is invisible.
We wait and we watch,
Counting the moments as we stare,
Completely oblivious to anything else around us.
What we don’t realize,
Is that we’re suffocating our desires,
The tighter we hold.
And we become blind to the manifestations of our dreams,
That aren’t born inside of our fists.
So dream, sweet one,
Visualize and hope,
And take action every single day.
But peel back those fingers,
And loosen that grip.
Widen your gaze,
And detach from the outcome.
So creativity can flow,
And you can breathe.
So Let’s Begin…
DETACH FROM THE OUTCOME GUIDED MEDITATION SCRIPT
Pulling the air in deep into you,
As it fills you up.
And then release,
As you exhale all that air out.
One more deep breath in,
Expanding your belly and chest to their max,
Gathering up those details,
And then releasing them all,
As you breathe out.
Now, bring your breathing to a soft, easy rhythm,
And be here for a bit.
One with the movement of your body,
One with the openness of your mind.
Holding on tightly to the outcome we want,
Will not ensure we get it.
But it will steal our attention,
Intensify our emotions,
And cause our minds to obsess.
So imagine your hand opening gently,
On the outcomes it desperately holds.
Imagine your fingers slowly peeling back.
Watch those petals of desires,
Unfurl and expand,
Free from the pressure,
Free to breathe.
Breathe here with them,
And find a gentle rhythm that nourishes.
Feel the soft breeze kiss your face,
And dance with the colorful petals in your open hand.
Slowly and beautifully,
The petals ride the waves of the breeze,
As they float away in all directions,
Free to land where they’re meant to be.
And here you are,
Light and peaceful,
Relaxed and calm.
Surrendered to the magic of the petals,
That will dance and spin,
Until they’re ready to land.
