Ask Cyndi – My Car Was Stolen Yesterday…

Hi Cyndi,
My car was stolen yesterday. I just loved my little rav 4, as much of an inanimate object that it was. it was 6 years old – we had been through alot together. I am just so astonished that in a sea of over a thousand cars, someone chose mine to take. I am trying to look at this positively; the car was insured, and I owned it outright. It was truly mine (until now). I am very angry and upset that someone would take something of mine, that I’ve worked for, paid for and heck, it just wasn’t theirs! any suggestions how to let go of being so pissed off?? I know it’s unhealthy. thank you for any help you can provide!

Hi Maria;

Would you rather be happy or would you rather have your car?

Would you rather be happy or be angry at those that took your car?

Sit with these questions carefully. If the answer is you would rather be angry and you would rather have your car, then I don’t expect that anything I write will be of much value to you.

But if your answer is you would rather be Happy – then please, read on…

As human’s we tend to collect people and things and believe that they somehow define us – that they are part of what we are -my home, my car, my children, my job, my friends, my money. And as we identify them as part of us – we mark them by leaving a bit of our energy with them.

And when we lose them, for whatever reason, we then feel the loss as if we lost a part of ourselves.

But we can take ourselves back – and we can do it fairly easily – and the more we reclaim our energy – the more capable we become to enjoy what we have, and who we are with, in the moment, and to release them when they are gone.

Marie – please realize that in many ways the one(s) who took your car did you a great favor. They identified a place where you gave yourself away – and they have given you an opportunity to consciously take it back. In the moment we take ourselves back from all our attachments we become free – and in that freedom we find true happiness – the happiness that comes from the understanding that all we will ever require is within us.

So how do you take yourself back from the car? One very powerful way is to use The Rose…

1) Take a moment to center and find yourself. Watch your breath and be aware of how you are feeling in your body. “Notice Yourself”

2) Imagine a Red Rose sitting about 12 inches in front of you. If you have trouble imaging a rose, then remember what a rose looks like and pretend that it is sitting in front of you. See the rose’s petals, the stem, the leaves.

3) Bring up the memory of the car and your anger and sense of loss. Don’t attempt to do anything with the memory, just allow what you have been holding to come to the surface of your consciousness, just “watch it”.

4) Instruct the rose to “collect you up” from the memory of the car. I know it may sound crazy – do it anyway. You will have a sense that something is happening (trust however it comes to you)- you may feel a pulling or have a sense that the rose is changing – getting bigger or changing color or beginning to wilt. And you will know when the rose is “full” – and it won’t take long.

5) When the rose is “full” – with a sense of gratitude – “blow it up” like it was fireworks – and take your energy back. You may or may not feel the shift – many people feel bigger – or more open – or more complete.

6) Begin again from step 2, with the creation of another Rose. When you go to step 3 you will notice that your memory of the car will have shifted somewhat. Either the emotion has decreased – or it has changed – let it be whatever it is – you will now be able to take yourself back from that aspect of the attachment.

7) Continue with steps 2-5 until you can bring up the memory of the car without the emotion. Then breath deep and enjoy the new freedom.

I learned about the Rose from Jim Self – and he provides teaching on this and other tools for free at http://masteringalchemy.com. The Rose is one of the most powerful tools I have ever come across and I recommend that everyone who reads this and feels at all inspired to please begin to play with it – to ask questions here in the comment section – and to consider learning more by visiting Jim’s site.

And Marie – we would all love to learn how much you are enjoying driving around in your new car :-)

    Great article, and love the Rose process, wonderful way to let go. You could also perform a ceremony where you express gratitude for the car being part of your life (as opposed to being part of you) and say farewell and thanks to the car for disappearing and opening up a space in your life for something new to come in. After all life doesn’t seem to like stagnation, or the same thing over and over again, it much prefers renewal and rebirth. I guess that’s how the universe keeps evolving. And we are not separate from that process.
    Love and gratitude to Maria for your courage and Cyndi for your compassion,
    Anthony

    I understand your reply but I don’t think that would be very helpful to me or others like me. I have become severely disabled with a respiratory illness. My car is my freedom! It is my only means of reasonable mobility. I have no family or support so am totally alone. I try to be cheerful with the struggle and pain because I can get out to nice places even if I can’t walk about. So I don’t think I could be happy if somebody stole my car.
    Kind regards
    Kay

    Hi Kay;

    I sit in presence with you – and I see you breathing easily, smiling, surrounded by the knowledge that your support comes not from a car, but from your connection with the Universal Force that is available to us at all times.

    As long as we allow our sense of happiness and freedom to come from outside sources – whether human or material – then we are giving our power away.

    Where there was one car there can be another
    Where a door closes, another one opens
    Where there is one more breath – there is an opportunity for us to remember the joy of who we are.

    Enjoy your car – and allow yourself to understand that it is a representation of the happiness and the freedom that you are holding within you. And that as long as you hold on to the knowing that you are free – no one or nothing can take that away from you.

    With Joy and In Celebration of This Most Magnificent Journey

    I don’t know of any better way to answer Marie’s question than your way. Of course,’they’ stole her car because ‘they’ could. Maybe there was a dire need for a motor or other parts they needed themselves and ‘they’ think ‘they’ are more important than anyone else. I see the right side and I see how ‘they’ could rationalize the theft. Just simple reasoning. Cyndi, your answer was great and the best possible.
    I just rationalize because I ‘want’ to understand everything and think no one is just totally evil. I do not delude myself though. I just reason and hope to beat the odds of it happening again.

    Hello Cindi,

    I just wanted to say thanks for sharing the Rose tool. I switched it up a bit. I substituted the Red Rose for a Dandelion – 1st recollecting all the times I gave out $$, whether lent and never ret., or put tow. things I knew Intuitively were not me, but didn’t listen – all the anger and sadness attached to it fr. feeling let
    down or stupid! I REALLY GOT what you said about us GIVING AWAY our Energy (leaving parts of us
    behind). So after I collected all those things/feelings into my Dandelion, I blew it all apart – scattering it to the wind. I then put in it’s place a doz. Lavender Roses, replacing the old stale energy w/the wonderfully scented new Energy – breathing that in …lovely! I really needed that – thanks ~ Lezlie

    Cyndi,

    Thank you for the Rose teaching. You’ve used it often when we’ve spoken on various topics and I’ve found it useful each, and every, time. It has not become second nature to use the Rose yet, it will… and I thank you.

    Much Love & Blessings,
    PJ

    Cyndi,

    Once again the angels have spoken through you as you have given an eloquent answer to this common situation and question. I became aware of how I gave my energy away when my car, which I bought brand new and had driven 198,000 miles on it died. it just died one day unexpectedly and to my surprise I cried for 3 days. i was shocked at my response and how I was mourning the death of my car. It was just a car for goodness sake but I realized that I was mourning a part of me that died that day. All the ego self I had given to the car over the years died that day and I had to learn to let go of it in order for me to move onto the next phase of my journey. If the car hadn’t died that day I never would have let go of those parts of myself and grown to the next level of my evolution. I believe sometimes when we won’t let go of something that is no longer serving our highest good the universe has a way of gently nudging us into a situation that forces us to let go. Thank goodness this happens or I believe we would all be stuck in the abyss forever and we would all cease to exist. Namaste’,
