These past few weeks I’ve been holding onto some things and situations very tightly. As a Gemini, it is also a habit of mine to ‘try’ to predict how things will turn out; to expect certain outcomes. (I’m working on improving!)
In a nutshell, I’ve been unwilling to let go.
I know the power of our feelings and thoughts – they shape who we are, our future and our destiny. Since knowing this, I’ve been saturating my mind with positive thoughts and affirmations. I’ve also stopped giving focus or attention to situations that drain me.
The thing is – there are a few thoughts that I struggle to let go. And gosh – it is tiring. It feels like I’m swimming upstream against the flow.
The funny thing is – I KNOW that the Universe can only help us when we surrender to the outcome and trust the process. The Law of Attraction, just like the Law of Gravity, is working all the time. We can only attract to us what we want when there is no resistance (only ease and flow). Looking into the past, I certainly have manifested a lot of experiences into my life when I was completely detached from the outcome. So, when you are holding onto something so tightly and unwilling to let go, you are only creating resistance, and the Law of Attraction cannot work in your favour. You are essentially in your own way.

When you give up the need for something to manifest, and just be in the state of knowing/state of happiness, there is flow and ease. In this state, manifestations occur very quickly, and in divine timing.
Have you ever chronically thought about something, but had no success in retrieving it? Perhaps you were trying to find something (like a book), and you have cracked your mind open thinking and searching in every possible place – to no success?
And then – you let go and surrender. You give up the need to find it. In your heart, you think “I’ll find it when I find it. Till then.”
What happens NEXT? OF COURSE, manifestation happens. You find the book you were looking for – just as you have let go of the need of finding it (resistance).
So this brings me back to my post title – let go & let God.
By God I am not referring to a certain religious figure. Rather, I believe that it refers to a higher power/the Universe/your higher Self/your intuition/your spirit/guide/soul – whichever resonates with you.
And just to be clear – when I am talking about letting go, I mean letting go of the emotional struggle and resistance that you are holding onto. I am not talking about letting go and giving up on your dreams/desires!
Today, I want to declare and commit that I will surrender, and make peace with where I am and what I have right now. I welcome the Universe to conspire on my behalf, and I completely trust the process.
Another thing I have realized is that I feel so much more in tuned with my soul when I let go. I feel in a state of knowing, I feel happy, more connected and everything that is happening just seems to .. make sense. I feel very at ease, and I feel that I am being guided to great things. :) Such a beautiful feeling – let’s all strive feel that way most of the time!
Take Action Challenge
- Let go of the expectation. Let go of the need to know what happens next. Let go of resistance.
- Appreciate the things and miracles we currently have.
- Practice the attitude of gratitude. (Say thank you, thank you, thank you for everything we have right now.)
- Reminder: There’s no need to worry about “giving up your claim” to the object or experience of your desire, because the Universe knows exactly what you want and has the power to bring it to you.
Cut yourself lose and detach. Grow, expand and just be happy doing something else.
Watch miracles happen to you, for you.
Surrender, let go, let God.
