I Finally Learned How To Let Go!
This one is a little longer but I hope you’ll stay with me to the end. I have known about the LOA for many years now and during that time I have intentionally manifested a lot of different things and circumstances. I say ‘intentionally’ because obviously I attract everything about myself, but most of it I’m afraid, is unintentional. But the things I did attract knowingly have always been on the small side; I had never been able to attract the big and truly significant things I wanted. Don’t get me wrong, I have attracted a lot of really great things and circumstances, but the things I feel most deeply about seemed to stay out of my reach. And that was so frustrating when I visualize and visualize and visualize. And then it hit me that that was exactly my problem! I can’t let go of the things I want most. I keep visualizing how I’m going to get it and that is no-go, as we all know. The how is not my problem or area.
So I started to read online about other people and their tactics in this matter. I am so grateful for the internet and it’s myriad of possibilities! I found my way to two stories that gave me “aha moments”. One of them in here actually. The first one was about letting the Universe impress you with the how. Instead of worrying and fretting about how you’re going to get your wish, be excited about it! Literally expect to be impressed! The second one was about writing down all the ways the Universe can give you your wish. So writing down all the how’s.
Now these two stories might seem mutually counterproductive but I’ve combined them to make a very powerful (at least for me) method of creating and feeling good. When I want something I’ll write down exactly what I want and then the fun begins. Because then I start to write down all the ways in which the Universe can give me this. At first it will be very limited and reflect what I think is within a reasonable possibility. But then I get creative and think outside the box and also write down the ways I think are highly unlikely or impossible. And no matter how long or short this list becomes, I always end it in all caps with “AN INFINITE AMOUNT OF WAYS THAT MY IMAGINATION IS TOO LIMITED TO COME UP WITH”. And then I say “Now go ahead, Universe. Impress me!”
This works so well for me in two ways. It makes me excited about how the Universe will grant me my wish and it makes me happy. It stops me from fretting about not being good enough or whatever my misgivings are, because there are an infinite amount of ways I could get it. So for example if it’s a job I’m applying for and I don’t think I have all the right qualifications, there are still many ways I can get it. The firm could have a quota for female employees they need to fill and there are no other female applicants. Enter me! Or if it’s a certain romantic partner that I don’t think will be attracted to or interested in me, but they could “suddenly” change their disposition or it turns out I was their type all along. Or whatever!
Hopefully you get the picture. It helps me when I doubt myself. I just need to remind myself that my imagination is limited in this respect and just go on with my day.
I want to thank everyone in here who writes their story because you are a tremendous help and inspiration! And if my story can help or inspire just one other person, then that would truly be wonderful! 🙂
