So, I have a confession to make: I have a hard time letting go. It’s one of my biggest challenges in life. I get attached…to things, cirrcumstances, to people but most often to being in control. And life, time & time again, brings me the same lesson: a problem arises, I find a solution. The solution seems just perfect to me, so I try it but it doesn’t work. Then I try again, still no success. So, instead of getting the hint from the Universe and backing off, I try again, and again because I am sooo determined…and I can’t let go. Then after several tries, lots of frustration, stress, anxiety… I give up and either look for another door to walk through or just wait for the Universe to send something my way…and it usually does 🙂
The lesson every time is to know when to release control, step back and WAIT (that’s the hardest part !). Sometimes a new solution appears, sometimes the problem disappears altogether, sometimes the situation completely changes and requires a totally new approach.
Just in the last few days, I got entangled in a drama of a situation where no matter what I did ( and I reacted swiftly with e-mails defending the righteousness of my actions and trying to point out the absurdity of the whole situation), all I got was more of the same mess. The very interesting part was that 2 of my emails (the most fiery ones) just …..disappeared ! I sent them on my phone, got the “Message sent” on the screen but then…. they were gone ! There was no trace of them either on the phone or on the server or on the computer…pouff…they were completely gone ! Later that day, I took some time and some space and sent a much shorter email instead saying that I did my best and I won’t participate in the drama any more. I will let you know how it all worked out. One thing is sure: my stress and anxiety levels are definitely down because I decided to let go.
So, my lesson is to step back, take a deep breath, wait, release control, give it up to the Universe and let it be.
MY Higher Samskaras AFFIRMATION is:
If I try and it doesn’t flow, I will let it go, I will breathe, ask for guidance and signs, wait and see what comes back. I will release control and new solutions will appear, the situation will resolve itself drama and anxiety-free.
Here it is to letting go ♡
