Is your focus TOO strong?

Uncategorized Aug 29, 2019

When I was a child, our family holidays always took in the delights of our beautiful country

 

Summers were peppered with trips to various stately homes, seasides & campsites

 

On one of these trips, I have a vivid memory of eating lunch on the grass next to the car park of a service station (living the high life!)

 

The reason the memory sticks with me is what happened on that grass

 

No, it was no big life changing moment, but I was served an important lesson as I sat in the sunshine on that warm summer’s day. 

A lesson I would not realise until now

 

You see, that grass was awash with clover, and I made it my mission that day to find one with four leaves

 

I had heard they existed, I knew it was possible to find one, and I turned into a girl on a mission

 

I scanned those clovers until my eyes went funny - I was desperate!

 

The time came that we were going to have to leave - distraught my search intensified

 

I knew that if I looked hard enough, if I tried hard enough, eventually my tenacity would pay off

 

My desperation increased

 

My panic rose

 

I was still lacking the four leafed clover I had promised myself I would find

 

As my parents began to increase their pressure on me to let go of the dream, the panic rose in my stomach

 

I NEEDED to find it!

 

To move things along, so we could get on our way, my sister was enlisted to help me

 

She looked casually for what must have been 30 seconds, then with an air of nonchalance piped up - There’s one

 

I couldn’t believe it!

 

She hadn’t even been looking for it and there it was for her without effort

 

I on the other hand, had wasted about an hour of my short life, fervently focusing on that which my desperation had blinded me to

 

If only I had known then what I know now

 

The lesson from all those years ago hit me the other day as I walked said sisters dog

 

As he sniffed and wee’d on the clover, it dawned on me the lesson I had been presented with that day, all those years ago

 

Just let go!

 

What you asked for is there, but if you are busy ‘trying’ ‘efforting’ ‘taking unrelenting action’ 

 

  1. You are missing the whole point of life, which is to enjoy your expansion throughout the journey

 

  1. you are likely blinding yourself to exactly what it is you seek

 

The closer your focus, the more difficult to see the opportunities presented in the bigger picture

 

The stronger your desperation, the more you repel that which you want so much

 

The lesson here may feel counter-intuitive but is simple...

 

Relax

 

Let go

 

Enjoy the moment 🙂

 

The universe knows exactly what you want – your job is to allow it to come to you, by being in a flowful state

 

That way you will ensure you can see those opportunities as they are presented to you
