Let Go of Control to Unlock the Power of the Law of Attraction

One of the hardest things about using the Law of Attraction properly is that in some ways it requires us to think differently than we’ve ever thought before.  Many of us believe if we do all the right things, run fast enough and turn enough cartwheels, we can guarantee that our dreams will unfold the way we want them to.  However, this is flawed thinking.  In reality, we must let go of control if we want things to snap into focus.

Think about it.  The world is infinitely complex.  We do not have control over how the people are acting around us, what the weather is, how long the traffic lights will be, what price the stocks are trading at and an infinite number of other details that effect where we are and what’s happening in the here and now. 

It would be impossible for any of us to control everything consciously, and for this reason it is impossible for us to force anything into place.  Reality is a symphony made up of intricate details, and every little detail effects everything else.  We  simply don’t understand how everything has to line up in order to give us exactly what we want. 

More importantly, controlling all of the details isn’t our job.  Some say it’s the job of God, the universe, source energy, angels, or some other higher power.  No matter who is in charge of the lining up, or what we believe in, it’s important to remember that we don’t have the ability to control all of the details, at least not from where we stand in this physical reality.  Our job is simply to dream things up, and have faith that they will take care of themselves in the best way they can.

Another important thing to remember is that when we try to control outcomes, we actually shoot ourselves in the foot.  This is because when we try to do a job that we can’t do we get frustrated, and being frustrated is a negative emotion.  Remember, the Law of Attraction requires that we radiate positive energy to get what we want, so it is necessary that we let go of control to avoid this low vibration emotion.

So next time there seems to be a delay or setback,  try to remind yourself that  your job is just to dream things up.  It’s not your job to force them into place.  Your job is to dream, let go of control and stay positive.  This is how you allow the symphony of reality to play out in your favor.

    Thank you so much for the down to earth explanation. Especially on The illusion of control. There is a higher part of self, but we humans don’t listen to it. It was a breakthrough for me finally. Many thanks Andrea.
