Fearless Friday: The Fear of Letting Go
“Fearless Friday: The Fear of Letting Go” was written by guest contributor, Jennifer Nguyen.
A couple weeks ago the planets aligned and I had the amazing opportunity to attend a Law of Attraction workshop workshop hosted by Andrea Schulman.
Upon entering the super charming yoga studio we were given a worksheet that we would write our LOA recipe for success on. Of course, if you were going to make an apple pie from scratch you know how important the steps and ingredients are to achieving your desired outcome. The Law of Attraction works in the same way.
As hands went up to guess the first step it was pretty clear that everyone had a grasp on “Asking” for what they wanted. The second step is where things got interesting, answers like “believe” and “work hard” were given but we were quickly informed that the real ingredient was “Let it all go!”
What??!! But if I don’t take care of it all isn’t it going to fall apart?!
No, it’s actually quite the opposite! The truth is fear wants us to “hold on” and love is telling us to trust and let go.
Here are a couple ways we learned to master step two, trust the divine order and let go to attract the things you desire…
Trust the Universe~
When trying to manifest a specific goal it’s important to incorporate as much detail as you can to create a clear image. Next you will need to surrender control and give it up to your higher power (insert name you give to the infinite-all-powerful consciousness here.)
Just as the world turns with out you spinning it, the divine is the ringmaster. Take action on what is yours to do and let the Universe do “her” thing!
When we become attached to specific outcomes we send negative vibrations that are resistant to the natural flow of our lives. Fear tells us that we “don’t deserve it” or are “unable of creating it.”
The truth is when we release attachment to specific outcomes we realign with love and the possibility that the Universe has things in store for us that are beyond our imagination!
Start a new project~
I went into the workshop believing I was pretty familiar with The Law of Attraction but was pleasantly surprised by Andrea’s next suggestion.
She suggested that once you’ve gotten clear on what it is you want to attract, hold onto that vision and start a new project! What a brilliant way to wait without anxiety!
Keeping busy with a new project leaves less room in your mind’s eye for negative emotions that are associated with trying to control outcomes.
This will send a message to the Universe that you are going with the flow and ready to receive.
Next time you hear self doubt kicking in or your mind begins to wander “Is this really going to work out?” Pause, breathe, tune in and let go expecting miracles!
