I really like this quote from Deepak Chopra about letting go. It really sums it up and it makes sense.
Holding on to anything is like holding onto your breath. You will suffocate. The only way to get anything in the physical universe is by letting go of it. Let go & it will be yours forever. ~Deepak Chopra
Think about that quote for a minute.
When you are holding on to something so tightly you are not allowing it to have the freedom to come to you. You are holding on to the idea.
So how do you expect it to manifest into physical form if you won’t let it go in order for it to materialize in your reality?
What does letting go really mean?
Well, it actually means different things to different people. But to let go of something or the thought of something to manifest it is what we are talking about.
When you let go you are showing your faith in God that He has got this. And you surrender it over to Him.
It also can mean that you have tried & tried and you are tired of trying. So you just let it go. That’s also a way of surrendering it.
How Do You Let Go?
By focusing on something else.
Or instead of focusing on the lack of the thing, you start focusing on the presence of it.
I think it is ingrained in us to focus on everything that we don’t have. And sometimes it can feel hard if you are not used to focusing on the good stuff.
I know, I was the same way most of my life.
Find something else to concentrate on.
I know that letting go can seem hard..
But we are the ones that make it hard.
Manifesting is supposed to be fun and easy.
Do not make it harder than what it really is. Most of the things that I have manifested for myself were done when I wasn’t concentrating on it.. Because I had either forgotten about it if it was something simple. Or I had done all I could & surrendered it over to God.
How Did I Learn To Let Go?
I started re-training my brain and changing the way I thought about EVERYTHING.
I had lived most of my life concentrating on the negative & living in a fear-based reality.
I finally got to the point that I had to do something to change my circumstances in life and the way I was living.
Have you ever heard the quote:
We change our behavior when the pain of staying the same becomes greater than the pain of changing. ~Henry Cloud
I decided ‘What could it hurt to start thinking, feeling & taking action in a different way?” The worst that could happen was that my circumstances wouldn’t change.
So, I started learning how to concentrate on the positive in everything that I could.
When you do this, you will shift your thinking. And that is the most important thing you can do for yourself.
You will start to see life from a whole new perspective. And everything starts to change for you.
What are some things that you can do to get your mind off of what you want to manifest?
Here is something I like to say after I have put my intention out there to the universe.
“I am grateful for _______ and no matter what happens I am fine with it. If I get it great if not that’s ok too!” AND then I focus on something else immediately to take my mind off of it.
- Do something that you love to do.
- Get on social media! There is enough drama on there to take your mind off of anything! lol
- Go to YouTube and find some funny videos. Not only is it uplifting but it will keep your vibrations up.
- Help someone else. Do something nice for someone. When you are concentrating on someone else, you forget all about your “stuff.”
- Write down what you are grateful for that day. Start a gratitude journal.
- Listen to some high vibe music and dance around your house.
- Love on your pets! Pets always make people feel better and are so loving in return.
- Read some inspirational posts online. Or grab an awesome movie that you love and watch it again.
If it’s something that you want really badly, it’s ok to have that desire for the thing.
The wanting & wishing for it is what you have to get rid of.
Those feelings are what you are attracting. More wishing & wanting.
That’s why you have to learn to focus on the presence of it being in your life as if you already have it. (That’s why I always say to use the past tense as if you already have it or have had it for a while.)
