“Yesterday when I was driving over a two lane bridge there were two cars on the bridge coming toward me in the opposite lane.
The second car decided to pass the first so I was suddenly faced with a car heading straight for me in my lane with nowhere for me to move out of the way.
I slammed on my brakes but instead of slowing down, the driver of the car that was trying to pass sped up to see if she could make it around the first car before she ran into me.
I was in release and really happy while I was driving before I ever got on that bridge, but, as soon as I realized what was happening, I slammed on my brakes, and I simultaneously felt the whole front of my body open up.
I was not conscious of any fear, and I had no thoughts whatsoever…my mind was simply processing data…distance, speed, space, and time.
The other driver did pull back into her lane and out of mine in plenty of time for all involved to be safe.
I was conscious of having about 1% of disapproval for the driver of the car that was trying to pass as I waved to her to say, “OK,” as our cars went by each other. I then let that disapproval go. Whenever the picture of the story came up, I released it and asked myself, “Can it get any better? Can I let go and find out?”
I also let the picture go as being in the past.
The best part of the gain is my gratitude for my reaction compared to what it would have been before I started releasing.
This is another graphic demonstration of how much progress I have made in my life thanks to the release technique.
Thanks so much to everyone who does this work that lifts all of us up, especially my mentor and Larry and all the masters.
