LETTING IT GO…
LET IT GO!
We have heard these three words ‘n’ number of times whenever we are upset over something or frustrated by something. But have you ever wondered what is its meaning?
I am an ardent believer of the LAW OF ATTRACTION and according to this law, there are two meanings to the term ‘LET IT GO’ – the literal meaning and the meaning while manifesting desires.
Letting go is releasing all doubt, worry, and fear about a situation, person, or outcome. It’s releasing anything that disrupts your happiness and no longer serves you on your journey. It is a choice to decide that you will no longer ruminate on things that are out of your control, and focus on what you can control, instead.
Letting go creates space for fresh beginnings: stripping you of what happened yesterday and enabling the doors of brand-new opportunities to open today.
Letting go is about accepting what is happening right now and not worrying about what will come up tomorrow.
MEANING WHILE MANIFESTING DESIRES
To let go of your desire is to stop worrying about whether or not it will manifest, how long it will take, how much you really need it right now, and if your manifestation efforts are even working.
This kind of worry only causes resistance!
In other words, it actually holds you back from manifesting your desires.
IMPORTANCE OF LETTING IT GO WHILE MANIFESTING
The following example is totally apt to tell you the importance of LETTING IT GO while manifesting desires,
When you go to a restaurant, you sit down. You read the menu. You make your decision and place your order. And then you wait—with full faith that your food will show up! There’s no need to order repeatedly and there’s no need to run back to the kitchen to make sure everything is ok.
The Law of Attraction works in the same way. When you set a manifestation intention, all you need to do is sit down and wait for your order to show up with full confidence that it will.
STEPS TO PRACTICE LETTING IT GO
So now that you know the meaning of Letting it go and its importance while manifesting desires, let us now focus on the process of practicing it. The practice of Letting It Go in divided into three parts,
- Trusting the process
- Trusting Yourself
1. TRUSTING THE PROCESS
Letting go is simply TRUST in action. You can say (or think) you believe in the Law of Attraction all you want but if you don’t display your ability to trust, then you’re not really letting it happen! Actions are a lot louder than words. Manifesting is a process of co-creation. You decide on what you want and you put in your cosmic order. Then you TRUST that the Universe will do the rest. You TRUST that you will receive guidance about what to do or where to go next. You TRUST that the Universe is always communicating with you and sending you signals and that you really just have to follow the trail of breadcrumbs that are happening for you right now.
When you don’t trust in the Universe, your eyes, heart, and mind will not be open to those signs!
2. TRUSTING YOURSELF
Truly letting go and allowing the manifestation to happen means trusting in ourselves too.
Because when it comes down to it, so many of our manifesting “problems” are due to our own feelings of inadequacy! It’s one thing to consciously desire something; it’s quite another to believe it on all levels.
Maybe you think you believe in yourself enough. But I’ll ask you to take a look at your actions here.
A lack of trust in ourselves usually plays out by pushing ourselves because subconsciously we’re still trying to EARN our desire. We don’t feel good enough exactly as we are so we do the things we think we’re supposed to do to help things along.
While it’s true that (almost) all manifestation success stories require work, the problem here is that pushing/striving energy comes from a place of desperation–not confidence. The action that really works to help our manifestations is always inspired action, which comes from a place of trust.
When we force and push, we’re doing those things because we think we have to. And because we think there is no other way.
Instead of showing the Universe, we have confidence, we’re showing the complete opposite!
Part of asking the Universe for help is ACCEPTING the help when it comes. You can’t look at what turns up and say “Oh that’s not EXACTLY what I was expecting so I’m going to ignore it and keep doing what I’m doing.” You can’t micromanage the magic!
If you truly want your intention, you must also say YES to it! You have to accept the help you’re being given! If you keep slamming the door in the Universe’s face, it’s going to get the message.
Here is a little experience that I had which emphasizes the importance of Letting It Go…
Now that you know the steps of practicing the LETTING IT GO, let us take a deep breath and release your intention, then do what you need to do: listen and look for divine signs, follow the path in front of you, and leave space for something wonderful to happen.
Because when you let yourself trust, it finally will.
