Or, how to feel more peaceful without needing to manifest your “life’s desire”.
This was running through my head last night as I was falling asleep – the understanding that Light Running is different from almost everything else out there.
With Light Running, the intention is cleaning out my reactions.
Not changing things outside me. Not trying to control things. Not being angry or sad or hurt or even self-righteous that things aren’t going the way I want them to.
It’s about letting go of any reactions that come to the surface.
It’s about forgiving myself for having done what I’m triggered by in others – even if it’s not even this lifetime or nearly as egregious. (This is mirroring)
It’s about feeling more peaceful exactly where I am without needed to change anything.
It’s not about “manifesting things” to feel better. (This is one way of avoiding your emotions.)
It’s not about talking myself out of feeling how crappy I feel in the moment.
It’s about owning my emotions. Not blaming, just feeling. Experiencing. And it’s about feeling peaceful feeling crummy! About being comfortable feeling uncomfortable.
Because, on the other side of feeling the discomfort is feeling more peaceful. Releasing that belief, feeling less triggered, feeling less rocked.
Not so that I can manifest something.
Just so I can feel peaceful. Accepting. Appreciative of not only the “good” times, but also finding value in the challenges. Because these challenges support me releasing old, unsupportive beliefs, thoughts, memories.
That’s it. (Ha! “That’s it” – if only it were really that easy!)
But it’s hard to sell that. Especially when we’re wired as humans (and especially by our society) to want a reward. To want things to be DIFFERENT so we can feel peaceful.
What if there were a way to feel more peaceful in EVERY situation? Even if you’re sad or angry or jealous or terrified or panicked?
That right there is pretty valuable. That’s what Light Running is.
No, it doesn’t pay the bills, but it helps you feel more peaceful and clear about the bills to pay and how to deal with them.
No, you may still be annoyed by someone, but you are peaceful with that and not needing them to be gone. (Especially helpful when you CAN’T remove them from your life!) And eventually, you can accept them for who they are without needing them to be different.
AND you can also find tremendous gratitude when things ARE going well because you aren’t taking them for granted in the same way. And you find gratitude for the challenges because they help you feel more peaceful.
So, yeah. That was going through my head last night.
It’s definitely a different way to look at healing. Healing becomes more about accepting than changing. And sometimes it’s hard to wrap your head around. Okay, it’s hard for ME to wrap MY head around when I have those big reactions come up!
But I’ll tell you, it feels MUCH better being peaceful in EVERY situation than it does to feel peaceful ONLY when things go the way I want.
That’s a much better way to live. Far fewer rugs get swept out from under me now.
And when they do, I have the tools to help me clean out my reactions and recognize the value in that rug being pulled out….
Light Running is pretty amazing stuff!
I’m going to just go one step further… Into my discomfort.
You see, when I share how you can get a Light Running session, my fear is that you’ll say, “Wow. Quit trying to sell me something, lady!”
But really, I just wanted to share with you that if you want to see what it feels like to feel more peaceful, Light Running may support you. Or you can skip to the end…
And if all you want to do is chat for a few minutes to see if we are a match to work together. Call or text me and we’ll set up a time to chat for a few minutes.
Oh, and just so you know, I’m always flexible with how much you pay for your session. Seriously. Don’t let the money stop you. Just text me and I’ll send you a coupon, if you’d like!
This work… well, I believe it’s so important that I want it to be available to everyone.
Whew. Thank you for letting me share this.
Thank you for being here to “listen”.
