I was working with Renee Rose on manifesting, discussing marketing options for an upcoming book. I noticed some drag with one of the options that she was working with. I asked her, “what’s the resistance?” She said, ”I don’t know. I’m detached from the outcome.”
As I’m listening to her, I start to see the energy of her relationship with the option. She is detached from the outcome, and the way that shows up energetically is that her energy and the energy of the marketing opportunity are distinct, not engaged in any way.
Hmm . . .
As I share this image with Renee, I have the understanding of situations when we want something but we say it doesn’t matter if it happens or not. When we feel detached, we are detached.
So, I asked Renee to love the option—to connect with it and love it. And then it came alive.
Renee didn’t believe she was in resistance, but, in fact, detachment was resistance. Renee said, “I thought I was letting go, letting God,” but she realized the detachment was actually “to protect myself from rejection.” It was fear based.
In other words, it was resistance.
I understood. Renee was thinking about submitting a book to certain reviewers’ sites, so what she was contemplating would be really “putting herself out there.” Fear is understandable.
When she connected with the opportunity and then started sending it love, the vision came to life. Renee’s energy harmonized with the energy of the opportunity. There was flow and harmony. Peace. An overwhelming feeling of love.
“That’s it,” I said. Then I asked her, “how do you feel?”
“Great,” she says.
“How do you feel when you think about submitting?”
We both realized that love is the ultimate detachment. Through love, detachment is not about protection or fear. It is about knowing that whatever happens love remains. When we send love to what we want, engage with it at the purest level and harmonize with love, outcome truly does not matter. Harmonizing through love was the ultimate success; whatever happened, Renee knew it would be in her perfect and highest good.
It is through love that genuine detachment is achieved, and what better way to open to the abundance and magic of the universe?
Many thanks to Renee for wanting to share this story with others!
