YOUR MANIFEST PROSPERITY MESSAGE:
40. I surrender my worries to the Universe
You may have heard about detachment many times, but it can be one of the hardest things to do, especially when we need something we don’t have a lot of, like money to pay for bills. On one hand you have to trust that everything is happening the way it is meant to. On the other, you have to detach from worrying about something you have no control over. A good practice is to focus on what you can control and do it with love and passion. As long as you are doing what you feel will ultimately create success in your life, trust that that is all you can do in this moment. We cannot always speed things up, but we can get into true alignment that can help that abundance flow. Sometimes getting clear and setting your intention could be enough to start seeing results; other times we must do a little bit more and know that you are doing enough in that very moment and obsessing or worrying about the outcome will not help in any way. In fact, it will only repel it. Release control, worry and the needy energy. The needy energy repels the natural flow of abundance. When we worry, we don’t trust. When we don’t trust, it doesn’t show up as easily and as fast. The less we trust the more we try to do to get things to work. The more we trust, the less we need to do, and the more abundance flows.
Distract yourself by going out and having fun; dance, sing, read a good book and release your worries to the Universe. The Universe knows what is best for you and when to bring you all those things and the best thing you can do is simply release that control and hand it over to the Universe. Goal setting is great, but we must not obsess over hitting every goal exactly as we imagine. You’ll simply miss all the fun if you’re always worrying about the things that are out of your control, so you might as well lean into the energy of love and joy and do what you can to bring more of that into your life today.
When things are hard, many of us worry about where our next paycheck will come from. The only thing you can do is tangible work. Either keep trying different solutions or surrender it completely. Not once has worrying helped me in any situation. When you allow yourself to focus on the solution, you may come up with some things you can try to help your circumstances. But if there is nothing you can do but wait, surrender it. Solutions may appear hours, days or weeks later. Change your focus. Have faith. Truly try to have faith. Test it. Would it really hurt you to not worry for once?
When you find yourself worrying, pray for help and surrender the problem. Ask the Universe for help and thank it in advance. The best way to surrender is to trust there is a greater force beyond us that knows what it is that we need and to trust it by letting go of control. Being present means to focus on what we love, what we are passionate about, and being patient that we will ultimately reach our goals. For you it could be to finish getting a degree, or work at a job and gain experience until you are ready to get a promotion. Instead of worrying about that goal, trust that it is coming (or something better); truly believe it with your whole heart and enjoy life as much as you can. If you are building a business or creating artistic projects, indulge yourself in that creative process. Be of service to others. Help, teach and guide those who need you; this could be your clients, customers or even your coworkers. Shine in the world one day at a time.
