Some people love change. I’m not one of them. Once I find a dish at a restaurant that I like, I tend to feel disappointed when it’s not on the menu the next time I try to order it. I feel frustrated when the grocery store reorganizes the space and disrupts my familiar shopping patterns.

Yes, I adapt. Most of the time it takes just a few deep breaths and I move on. Sometimes I need to commiserate with a friend before I let go of these small expectations. But bigger changes can be far more challenging.

What about you? Do sudden changes in plans throw you off balance? If you keep thinking about your disappointment or feeling angry at the forces responsible for the changes, here is a way to help regain your equilibrium.

First realize that you had a belief that the original plan would happen. Then say aloud the sentence, “I retrieve all my energy bound up in the belief that this (event) would happen, and I take my energy to the right place in myself.” Notice how your body and thoughts respond to this sentence. Follow this sentence with the other two found in this book.

I was amazed how differently I felt the first time I tried this. I hope you will be also.

This post is a comment I wrote about a passage on Page 56 revised edition, P 61 original of  Letting It Go: Relieve Anxiety and Toxic Stress in Just a Few Minutes Using Only Words (Rapid Relief with Logosynthesis®). You can see the passage in the book. You can also see the excerpt here. This link will take you to, where I regularly publish comments on parts of this book. This is a site where authors share of their work. You can subscribe to my musings, there, as well as to the musings of many other authors. It’s a great place to learn about new books and I recommend that you visit.
