Relinquishing Control – Moving Into the Flow With Intent
It can be a scary thing to completely let go and surrender to life. Life can appear cruel, impersonal, and scary. However, the Law of Attraction clearly states that what you think, feel, and believe is what you will get. Let’s look at the right time to let go, and how to get to that point in your life. Let’s also look at the benefits to letting go, as moving into the flow with intent will give you the most powerful experience of the world imaginable.
First of all, before completely relinquishing control of the minute details of your life, you will need to be in a position that allows you to trust yourself completely. If you can trust yourself, you can trust the universe, as the universe and life itself will only give you what you attract. That means once you are in a good place mentally and emotionally, the world will only bring you good things if you surrender.
I don’t mean to mislead you. You are never truly in control of anything, insomuch as things can and will happen to you even when (or especially when) you are still putting out detrimental thoughts. However, the illusion of control is impossible to surrender unless you feel comfortable, and so that is what I am actually referencing – the illusion of control, and not true control itself.
The problem is that clinging to the illusion of control stifles the organic process of life. The good things that should be coming to you may be held back, or you may not recognize them when they come by. The benefits of moving into the flow are that you will be able to manifest your desires almost immediately in a day by day fashion. Again, this is impossible before you are comfortable and truly trust yourself.
Begin by paying attention to when you are feeling bad. Whether unhappy, angry, depressed, etc, any bad feeling is an indication that you are thinking thoughts that are not bringing good things to you. As difficult as it may be at first, you need to learn to break this up immediately. Whenever you catch yourself feeling bad, find a way to take your thoughts back in a good direction, so that your emotions will follow. One very easy way is by finding music that makes you feel happy.
As you become more and more positive in your habitual thinking, you will begin to trust yourself, and trust the process of life. Good things will begin happening to you on a consistent basis. At this point, it will be time to let go. When you truly let go, life will begin moving much faster, and much more will happen in shorter spans of time. You may move in and out of the presence of new people, or various groups of people. You will find that when you desire something, you will wind up somehow receiving it.
For today, begin working on building a trustworthy pattern of thinking. And tomorrow, maybe you will have that dream life you are looking forward to!
