Want to learn to let go of control? To let life take care of itself?
I know it is difficult and scary, but at least consider the option. (If just thinking about letting go causes you anxiety, breathe deep and keep reading!)
In a current 21-day free meditation series, Deepak Chopra noted that “your heart beats without you choosing to make it happen”. How true, and yet we still think we still need to control everything!
You do not have to solve every problem that arises – yours or others. And, most challenges do not have to be solved now, or on your own! You can learn to trust yourself, the world and others. (Keep-up those deep breaths . . . )
I’ve done it so many times in my life, and the rewards have been enormous. Deepak reminded me to keep it up, and to apply to everything! (More deep breaths!)
Deepak advises that “life can take care of itself”. He suggests that when we recognize an issue needs attention, we take action by “holding an open, neutral intention for a creative solution, and then simply let it go.”
If we allow ourselves to be fully open, our personal awareness and the awareness of the universe will share solutions with us.
Sounds very new agey, but the truth is when we calm down and trust ourselves, solutions flow. Our brains relax by releasing calming chemicals and hormones, which allows us to think more clearly and more creatively.
When we trust there is a solution our options begin to grow and develop. And, the truth is, there are many solutions for every single issue we face, being able to see them is the true challenge. That is what letting go is – trusting and seeing.
Let go. Set your intention for a creative solution and relax a bit. The world will not come tumbling down, and the issues we create or face will diminish in size and frequency over time.
It is so much easier to face life with a calm heart and a relaxed mind, and with the belief that there are solutions for everything, even if we do not have the answers right this minute. When you let go, you become the light at the end of every tunnel!
So, take a deep breathe, and let the rest go. Repeat as necessary!
You can do it!
