Manifesting: How To Let Go In Order To Receive
How to let go seems to be the hardest step in the manifesting process. Still to this day I too have a hard time “letting go” in order to receive my manifestation. One thing we all need to realize is that the Law of Attraction is not some magic spell that we can use to conjure up “just good things” when we want to! It is working at all times. Thru the good & the bad!

Back to letting go!
Ok Y’all, I’m gonna be totally honest here, letting go is the hardest step in the manifestation process for me too sometimes. But I think the reason that is, is because sometimes I feel like I have to be in “control” of every aspect of my life..
And when I am in control I feel like things are going “my way.” But we have to start questioning ourselves, do we want things to go “our way” or do we want to release all of that control so that we can have an even better life and better manifestation appear?
Remember, that we are humans, and we have “limited” thinking!
The Universe is abundant! So abundant that we can’t even begin to fathom what is all out there for us! God is the beginning and the end! The alpha and the omega! There are no limits to what He can do! And I think that when we try to “control” our manifestation or the outcome, then we are putting a limit on God/Source/Universe (whatever you call your higher power.)
To truly let go you have to have faith that everything will happen in divine timing and for your highest good.
And I know that it can seem hard to let go of that control because you want that thing so bad. I know, believe me I know! I have been trying to manifest one thing in particular for a long time now.. But I know that I am getting in my own way! Because I can’t let go of it! But I realized that you don’t have to let go of the desire for “the thing” you just have to let go of the constantly wishing & asking for it. When you are constantly asking for the same thing over & over again that is just showing your lack of “the thing.” You have to KNOW it’s coming to you! Or even better KNOW you have it already!
It’s like putting your order in at Amazon. You see this awesome makeup palette that you just gotta have. And you have the money, so you order it.. You have Prime so you KNOW it will show up within 2 days time..
Just think of your manifestation like that tooo! You have to know that it’s coming and let it go. Don’t worry about the how! Just let it go. Put your total trust and faith in God/Source/Universe! And when we show our faith and truly believe that what we are manifesting is coming to us, then it will!
For a really well-written explanation of how to let go, I love this blog post about it: Letting go and detachment ~ Nicole Constante
When you know something is gonna happen, doesn’t it usually happen? When you have this “feeling” inside of you that something is going to happen, it usually does. That’s because you “know or expect” it to!
One of my manifestations that has come true is my dream of becoming a blogger!
I wrote a post a couple months back called Manifesting Does Not Have To Be HARD that might interest you. This was when I first started blogging on I Heart LOA. I had switched from blogging on Blogger and I was bound and determined that I was going to make myself into a professional blogger.
Well, here I am still blogging! And I don’t intend to give that up anytime soon. I manifested my dream of becoming a Blogger! That dream has come true. I have subscribers and I have followers. And it is still growing! That is amazing to me.
If you would have told me 5 years ago that I would be sitting here writing a post that “my readers” requested of me, I would have said, “yeah right, nobody cares what I have to say!” But look how life has changed for me!
So many things in my life have changed so much for the better since I started really living intentionally!
And when I really decided to give up this struggle of having to be perfect all the time. And trying to control everybody around me and myself! To the point where no one wanted to be around me. Now I am just me. And don’t try to be perfect of someone that I’m not. It is so freeing when you can just be yourself!
Life is just life. It has it’s up’s & downs.
But I believe the intention behind the Law of Attraction is to attract.
So if you are wanting a good life or a happy life, you have to BE happy now in order to attract more happiness into your life in the future..
What you are:
RIGHT NOW is making your tomorrow! I truly believe that with all my heart..♥
And I can attest to that fact for one by telling you that ever since I started saying what I am grateful for every single day, that I keep getting more and more things to be grateful for in my life!
To me, this is the easiest way to manifest a happy life!
Because when you are grateful for the things and life that you have right now, you are attracting more things to be grateful for in the future. And when you have that grateful feeling going on inside of you, there is no room for negativity. There is no room for the “wanting of.” There’s no room for anger or sadness.. You are just grateful. And that makes life so much more amazing!
I changed how I saw my life. When you change your perspective on your life, your life will change too. You will see what you want to see because you are creating your own reality! It truly is a mind thing.
When you can change how you see your world, (because it is your world, it’s your reality that you decided to have), you will start to see the beauty and the opportunity that is right in front of you! You can change your story at any given moment by deciding to change it! Instead of seeing struggle and scarcity. Start looking for opportunity & abundance!
If you really want a better life and you want to manifest a better career, love or money, (whatever you want to manifest), you have to be in a state that will attract those things to you.
So if you want more:
- money in your life, you have to BE abundant RIGHT NOW.
- love in your life, you have to BE love RIGHT NOW.
- better career, you have to BE the THING that you want to be.
I wanted to be a blogger.. So guess what I am being right now? A blogger!
It all comes back to what you are wanting to attract.
Remember the Universe is a mirror. So if you are being crappy to someone at work, that is what you are going to get back. If you are acting like you don’t have any money to do this or that, that is what you are going to get back.
But if you can switch that thought in your head to one of “I am happy or I am abundant, then you will BE abundant.” And when you start to BE these things, you will get nudges inside of you that will give you a feeling of something that you should do, go with that feeling and do it! Even if it makes you a little anxious or nervous, do it anyway!
Because opportunity is always knocking! You just have to be aware and be on the lookout for it! If you are looking for opportunity and not struggle, then you will get opportunity.. But if you are looking for struggle and a hard life, that is exactly what you will get.. Because you are BEING or vibrating that energy out to the Universe that is mirroring it back to you!
Ok anyways, back to how to let go..
I have an awesome quote for you about letting go from Deepak Chopra and it goes like this
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
Our minds are limited
We can’t comprehend all that there really is out there for us. We think in limited terms. That is why you have to learn to shift your mindset. And to think more positively about yourself. And start facing and realizing those limiting beliefs that you have about yourself and your life.
When you feel a limiting belief coming on in your head if you are able to, write it down. Keep a notebook of stuff like this.. And when you have the time or make the time:
- Go back and read one at a time.
- Sit there and question the hell out of that limiting belief!
- Is it really true? Or is it a belief that was passed down to you from your childhood? Have other people done this or that before, even tho you haven’t? Then that is proof that it’s just a belief and not a fact! If it was a fact, then other people couldn’t have done this or that..

I want to be a millionaire. But I am so far from it right now. I am living paycheck to paycheck and have debt. So how in the hell can I manifest having a million dollars?
Question that statement by asking yourself
- is this statement true?
- Or did my parents tell me that I had to work hard to have anything in life?
- That work was hard. Life was hard. And bills are always piling up.. More bills than paycheck!
- Then ask yourself, in the history of all time, has there ever been just one person that went from a poor background to having a million dollars in their bank account now?
And you know the answer to that! It’s def a YES! There are self-made millionaires everywhere these days! And the times we live in! There are more and more entrepreneur’s popping up day to day! Yes, you can be or do anything that you want to.. But you have to know that you can do it!!!
So, with all that being said. I know this is a very long post to read! But I hope you did anyway.
Letting go is just having FAITH and TRUSTING in your higher power.
Realizing that you can’t control everything but your own thoughts and beliefs. Remembering that you think in limited terms and that God/Universe/Source has NO LIMITS. And that by not trusting and not expecting things to happen is putting limits on God. You don’t have to ask for what you want over & over. That is just showing that you don’t believe you will get it. And that is just being in a state of lack.
You can co-create your life by asking for what you want. Knowing that it will happen. And taking inspired action toward what you want to show that you really do want it. And it will happen. Just stop limiting yourself. And don’t listen to that voice in your head telling you-you can’t have something or can’t do something, because you really can!! (Talking about the EGO- another post for another day! One that I really need to write!)
I could go on and on with this post but since it’s already so long, I am going to stop here. And I will make another post continuing this conversation. I hope this has helped some of you that are having a hard time letting go. I know I have to remind myself of this from time to time too!

And I am so grateful that I have each and every one of you to talk to about the Law of Attraction & manifesting! Because if you are like me, sometimes you feel like you are all alone in the way you believe! But I truly feel like that when we are grateful and choose to live our lives in a more positive & abundant way, then our life reflects that! And I for one, am choosing to live my life the way I want and not reacting to what life is giving me!
