Letting go can be one of the hardest aspects of manifestation to master because when you have a strong desire for something you tend to want to control how it comes to you.
Think about the things that you manifest easily. You have an idea and then it happens without any real effort on your part. That’s because you have no inner resistance to having whatever it is. There are no limiting beliefs, doubts or fears attached to your idea.
If there’s a fear attached to what you’re wishing for, your mind will keep obsessing on working out how it’s going to happen because you don’t really believe it’s possible.
The ‘letting go’ aspect of manifestation is like placing an order in a restaurant.
You choose what you want from the menu and give your order to the server to take to the staff in the kitchen. You trust that all the ingredients are there, that the chef knows exactly how to put the dish together, that it will be cooked perfectly and that the meal will arrive in the right sequence in perfect timing.
You don’t summon the server over and over and repeat your order. You don’t rush into the kitchen, question how your meal is going to be cooked or if the chef has the right ingredients. If you did, you’d interfere with the whole process of delivering your delicious meal.
Here’s another example…
When you place an order online you expect it to be delivered. You receive an email with your order confirmation and once the order is processed you may get another email to say your order is despatched. Just like the restaurant example above, you don’t keep calling or emailing the company about your order, you allow the process to happen and your order arrives as expected.
Interestingly, just like the emails you receive about your order, the universe will also send you messages to indicate that your order is in progress, but you need a high level of awareness to spot them.
Manifestation works the same way. If you try and force the process or interfere with the natural sequence you can mess up the whole outcome.
“Let go, let God.”
Everything works in Divine timing
You have no idea what has to be organized in order to make your desire manifest – it could involve many steps which are outside of your control. There may be many interdependencies that have to be lined up in a specific sequence in order for everything to fall into place.
Relax and allow and you open the space for your desire to manifest. It isn’t your job to worry about how it happens, just like it isn’t your job to worry about cooking the meal you order in a restaurant or how your online order will be processed.
Accept the situation in the present moment and that everything is as it should be.
Forcing something to happen interferes with the gathering of resources, the necessary steps, and the interdependencies.
Instead, tune in your intuition to the Universal energy – spot the messages and sense the cogwheels turning in the process of creation and trust that everything is in progress to deliver your desired outcome.
