Have you ever wanted something so badly it hurt? That you could literally taste it?
Needing, yearning or obsessing about something you desire often leaves you feeling trapped ~ unable to get what you want and also seemingly unable to let go.
Obviously, a goal must exist to summon the energy required to bring it into form, but the goal must not become so important itself that it consumes you.
When you are intensely emotionally invested in a solution, you strap blinkers to your eyes and sever yourself from perceiving any other possibilities, cordoning off opportunity from any other means of approach.
Inner peace is often more about what you remove than add, for example letting go of; complaining, criticising, comparing and competing to name a few. The more you eliminate what doesn’t work, the more you make space for what does to enter your life.
3 things commonly overlooked when you think you are letting go:
1.) Blind desire because it filters your natural intuition through such a narrow lens that it shuts out your ability to detect other possibilities even if they pelt you from all angles.
2.) Clinging to the past in a way that it affects your present. Acknowledge that it played a role in who you chose to become as a result, but don’t let it colour what is yet to come.
3.) Blaming others for where you are at. Forgive yourself, accept what has been and integrate your experiences into who you are now. Anger and resentment hurt you more than the other person.
When you have an intention or goal you would like to see fulfilled;
1.) Ask once with conviction that you will receive it in accordance with your highest good under grace and in a perfect way.
2.) Imbue your asking with heartfelt emotion such as gratitude, appreciation, humility and wonder for what you already have and how you think your end result will lead you to feel.
3.) Symbolically release your request. Either physically or in your mind’s eye ~ bury it, burn it, visualise it floating away or dissolving into the ether. Then go do something else to take your mind off your request. (Take a nap or go to bed, exercise, walk the dog, whip something up in the kitchen, create art, take a shower/bath). When you act as if you fully trust that the universe will provide for you, it invariably will.
In this manner, you are not attempting to control when or how it comes about or projecting expectations of what should be. You are surrendering to Creative Flow and will more easily be able to detect and follow threads of synchronicity that steer you to all you need and more.
In witch ways do you let go?
*I Am Witch. I commit to letting go for just this moment, then I allow myself to let go for a series of moments*
Own it. You know you want to.
