Manifesting : How To Let Go In Order To Receive

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! 

Hey guys! Thank you for stopping by the blog. Today’s post is all about how to let go so that you can receive your manifestation.

My Survey To Subscribers

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 & 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 too.

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 too!

One of My Manifestations That Has Come True is My Dream of Becoming a Blogger.

I wrote a post a couple of 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:

  • doing
  • being
  • acting
  • saying
  • thinking

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!

Be Grateful Today So That You Will Have More To Be Grateful For Tomorrow. Gratitude has changed my life in so many ways. Come on over to read more!

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.

**(Those nudges are your intuition. And the action you take directly after the nudge is called inspired action.)** You can learn more by clicking the links: How To Know The Difference Between Your Intuition And Your ThoughtsLaw of Attraction & Inspired Action

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..

This post might help you with your limiting beliefs too, Limiting Beliefs: What Are They & How Do I Get Rid Of Them


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!

Because if you are like me, sometimes you feel like you are all alone in the way you believe. (psst. you’re not, you have ME! 😉)

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!

  1. HI Amy, wonderful blog post!

    You’re right when it comes to letting go is being one of the hardest steps to manifest, but once you break that resistance everything falls into alignment.

    I think it’s important to understand the ego when it comes to breaking resistance, our ego expects results to manifest overnight in the midst of inspired thought or action.

    And like you said; Manifestation isn’t a miracle pill – you are totally right!

    We need to let go and allow the universe to break free from our chains of resistance, time is merely an illusion and patience is a virtue.

    Wonderful blog post, I found your website through Pinterest and I’m totally hooked 🙂

    Enjoy your day,

    1. Hey Crystal!!

      Thanks so much for stopping by!! And for your sweet comment. I am so glad you like the post & the blog. That makes me so happy! Letting go is always something I have to work on, on a daily basis. When I can get relaxed and just let everything “flow” that is when everything seems to just fall into place!

      I hope you will come back to visit the blog!!!


      1. Thank you so much for this blog post. I really struggle with “letting go” and fearing it will not happen sometimes.

        1. Hey Tye,
          Thanks for stopping by the blog. I know what you mean. I think we all struggle with letting go sometimes. It is just in our human nature to try to control everything. But we have to learn to just take a step back and realize that things are conspiring for us and not against us. I have to constantly use positive reinforcement and talk myself thru a lot of things. But it is possible. And once you change your perspective on life, everything seems to look a lot different. And a lot better. I love diving into mindset and positive psychology. Thank you so much for stopping by and commenting!

    Your blog is amazing! Thanks for all the posts you’ve written so far!
    I got to know the loa in 2017 but I am still struggling with “letting go”. I manifested my ex back by the end of 2017, but because of my limiting believes and fears he left, lives with someone else now – unhappily as he told me two weeks ago. We’re still in contact and as soon as I “let him go” he sends me loving messages blablabla I love it so much that I start to cling and to miss him a lot instead of being happy and enjoying those messages. I know that I push my manifestation away with that wishy-washy feelings …

    “Letting go” is not easy and sometimes one is afraid to push the desire away completely by doing it …
    -> but thinking that is one of my limiting believes – “letting go” is easy and all our desires come true in divine time! I think patience is one of the keys as well…

    In my case, for example, my person of interest is jobless at the moment and doesn’t even care to find a job, which makes me even angry although we’re not in a relationship …
    Maybe the universe is protecting me against him at the moment – otherwise I would have to pay everything for him, would have to push him to apply for jobs etc.

    I receive what I have already wished for and desire in divine timing ☺️

    As English isn’t my mother tongue, I hope it’s understandable what I wanted to say ☺️

    Now that I’ve written down my thoughts and shared it with all of you I really feel happier

      Hey Lucky,

      Thanks so much for taking the time to comment on the blog! I’m so glad you are liking the blog and the articles are helping you!! That totally makes me feel so good to know that!

      To me, letting go is the hardest part of the manifesting process.. But then I see myself as saying that it’s hard and realize that- that itself is a limiting belief. It’s all about our beliefs and how we talk to our self. Ya know?? I still to this day catch myself using negative self-talk, but thanks for learning about the Law of Attraction & Personal Development, I can flip that thought into something more positive.. The more you focus on training yourself to speak positively about your life, the more it helps when dealing with everyday things!

      We live in a world where everything is at our fingertips.. And that is good and bad.. Because we expect things to happen instantly. But the one thing that has helped me with my patience (because I used to be the most impatient person) is developing better habits.. The best habit that I have created for myself is the habit of gratitude.. I’m telling ya, gratitude in itself can help change your life and shift your mindset!!!

      Thanks for stopping by the blog!!! Come back and say hi!! I would love to hear from you again!!


  4. Debbie says:

    Thanks for this post. I struggle with letting go too.

    1. amy says:

      Hey Debbie,

      You are so welcome. I think letting go is the hardest step for many people. Myself included. I have to remind myself to just let go of trying to control the outcome of everything. And just BE. Always reminding myself that life is happening FOR me NOT TO me seems to help. Personal development is an everyday thing that you have to work at. But so worth it. We are manifesting our reality every single day. Gratitude helps me to stay focused with what I want to manifest.

      Thank you so much for taking the time to comment on the blog!!! I am so glad you stopped by. Your support means the world. It lights me up inside when I know my post has resonated with someone else!!! Make sure you come back and say hi!!!


  5. Tylet says:

    Thanks for the heads-up, i have always believed in LOA, i have manifested my lover, i have manifested a house, a car, a job and my life is pretty good, now i am on my path to manifesting more money and basically the freedom of doing what i want with my time and not spending my life in a position where i cant be with my familly because of working all the time, i know it is something here for me and am close to it, i have felt it for some time now, the only thing that i dont know what to do is in if i need to take action and change my job to a better one but my degrees are not that good for somethig else and this could be a limiting believe for whats out there. I have to say that in about 10 years i will have millions because my father left me something that will indeed bring me what i want but until then i just want to spend more time with my family and not work myself to death, especially when i know that i have the power to manifest what i want, the signs are there, my alignment is pretty constant because i keep myself in the receiving mode as much as i can but there are times when i just feel like im standing and i feel like i need to do something about it but i dont know what besides looking for a better job but this would be in contradiction with the feeling that this is not what i want as well, all the things i wanted had been manifesting in a naturally knowing believing way without any sort of action.

  6. Taniya says:

    I just fell in love with this post. Truly thankyou so much. I have a beautiful life & I am so thankful for this life. I have a man whom I truly love and I know we are meant for eachother & are soulmates of eachother. He had a bad past & couldn’t give me the love which I deserve. He is not ready for relationship but wants me to be with him all the time. He respects me, cares me, adored me but isn’t giving me commitment. Sometimes I feel he is ready & after fee time I just get completely drained by my endless efforts. Can you please help me with this, I just know you will give me bestest & permanent solution .

    1. Hey Taniya,
      Thanks so much for stopping by the blog.

      Sounds like he has trust issues. If you are willing to give him the time that he needs to work thru his issues- then be there for him.

      But, don’t let it get to the point where your energy is feeling depleted & drained because you are putting in all the effort and he is not.

      Sounds like he is crazy about you but is afraid to commit.

      The best thing in my opinion is to find something that fulfills you & brings you joy that you can be a part of. Always take care of you first!!! And remember that taking care of yourself is not selfish, it is a must if you want to have inner peace.

      When you make yourself happy first & are focusing on living a happy life, regardless if you are with this man or not, you will start to exude & vibrate that energy. People are attracted to that kind of energy. And when he sees that you are happy with or without him, well it might just get him to come around to committing.

      Regardless if you stay with him or not, be there for yourself first!! Find your joy! Find what fills you up with excitement & passion.. And watch it spill over into every part of your life!!

      I truly wish the best for you. Only you can decide if you really want to be with him or not. People come into our life when we need to learn something about ourself. To teach us lessons. They can either complement the life we already have or teach us something that we need to know or learn.

      I truly hope everything works out the way you want it to. Always remember that you are worthy of an amazing life & an amazing love. Give the love that you want to receive back. If it’s not reciprocated, then raise your standards & move on to someone that is worthy of you! And will appreciate all the love that you have to give..

      I hope this helps in some way! I am definitely not an expert at relationships. But ever since I raised my standards in life and started getting into the Law of Attraction & Manifesting.. I manifested an amazing relationship. My life is so much better with my bf in it.. And i truly hope that’s what happens with you too!!

      Make sure you come back & say hi!!


  7. Abhi says:

    It really helps ,
    Thank you.

  8. Im really interested in using these techniques to manifest my dream life, however i am just confused. I love scripting, but i find myself writing the same things everytime i script (purely because I really want it and that is what my dream life looks like) Does this mean when scripting you should only write about one subject out of your dream life ( let it go) and then the next day write about something different in your dream life? Or does letting it go only need to happen when meditating and using different techniques not the visualization (scripting) method. Ive heard you can write the same thing down everyday because that is what your dream life looks like but it just doesnt make sense because then you are fascinating over it like you explained in your post which does no good. Im sorry if that sounds confusing and i hope it makes sense, your help would mean so much.

    1. Hey Madi!

      I’m so glad you stopped by the blog. Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I saw your message on Insta too. So I thought I would reply here to you ok.

      There really is no wrong way to do scripting. So whatever you are feeling in your heart express it. I don’t want you to worry about thinking that if you dwell on it, it won’t show up.. Here is the reason.. It’s hard to not think about something when you want it so bad.. Especially if it’s something you have been wanting for a long time. It’s ok for you to continue to desire the thing. Right? But you want your energy to not be coming from a place of desperation. Does that make sense?

      The constant wishing & wanting is what gets people hung up.

      If you can get yourself into a grateful state of being before you do your scripting exercises I think that would help you. And then start scripting out what you want as soon as you have that feeling. You are grateful that you already have __________________. (insert what it is that you want>)

      And I also want to add that I have noticed when I script out what I want my life to look like that sometimes I am writing down the same things over & over.. That’s ok. As long as your energy while you are visualizing what you want is already in a state of I know this to be true. I don’t think it would be in your heart if it wasn’t meant to be.. A good thing you can do is start asking yourself questions. You can journal it out if you want to.

      Ask yourself something like “Who am I- when I am being my highest self?” Because your higher self already has everything you want. She is there inside of you. And she is trying to give you clues as to bring you forward in life. The ego will always try to hold you back.

      I hope this isn’t confusing you more.. And I know it’s a lot to take in.

      Remember it’s all about your mindset. When you can start changing how you think, everything else will start changing in your outer world too.

      I have a million and 1 posts on here about gratitude. And mindset..

      My latest post might help you.

      You can find it at How You Can Step Into Your Higher Self.

      If you have anymore questions please feel free to dm me again on Insta ok. And I will try my best to help you. I am learning so much about mindset and manifesting. This stuff lights me up and I love to talk about it!!

      I hope you have an amazing day.. Try getting into a grateful state then doing your scripting. Don’t worry about if you find yourself writing the same things over & over.. Just don’t be in a state of desperation for it. Know that it’s already yours! ok..

      Big hugs!!

    Hi, it is so true. Just had this experience recently and it’s so weird, but a definite aha moment for me. I do hope everyone could see the profoundness of this universal rule, which is simply paradoxical in every way. Keep up spreading love, cheers.

    I am having a hard letting go and manifesting one of my wishes, but this post has been very helpful and quite honestly a sign from the universe. I googled letting go and law of attraction. Of all the entries, yours was the one that drew my attention.
    Thank you! Thank you! Thank you

  11. Dedunu says:

    Hi Amy,
    I am confused about letting go process. Manifesting and the should we forget about it? Like should we not even think about it? or is it okay to act as if we have already it and live like that? Does this clash with letting go?

  12. Hi ,it’s great to read your post,I feel I am very near to receiving my manifestation and the next step is letting go,but it’s very hard to do this.I hope my manifestation comes true
