Whether that "thing" you want is a new or improved relationship, more money, a successful career, or anything else, it can be so frustrating when you're trying your best and it's still not showing up. If you are currently feeling this struggle, know that you are not alone!
Let's face it; humans are wired to want stuff. We want to be happy. We want to be well-fed and comfortable. We want to be loved and accepted. We want to feel safe and abundant. For the most part, we are successful in getting what we want. Most of us have at least a roof over our head, food to eat, and a job that pays the bills. We hopefully have family and friends who love us.
We're not doing too badly, all things considered. But we still want more. We see something new, something exciting, something fun or interesting, and we want it. There is no end to the things, people, and circumstances we want.
Do you find yourself in this cycle of endless wanting lately? Is there one thing (or maybe several key things) that you've been trying to get or accomplish for a long time, and it just hasn't happened for you? If so, this article is for you. I want to share a secret that has helped me and countless other people to finally receive more good things in life.
That secret lies in the power of letting go. Don't worry, I'm not going to tell you to stop wanting the things you want! Having desires is perfectly natural, and there's nothing wrong with wanting more, no matter how much you already have.
But I am going to encourage you to drop the belief that you can't be happy until you have this thing you want so badly. Maybe the fulfillment of your desire will make you even happier, and that's great!
However, not only can you be happy before that happens, but your commitment to being happy now, before that thing has even shown up may even help speed its arrival! That's right, by consciously letting go of your attachment to having the person, the job, the money, or whatever it is you've been waiting for, you actually open up your energy, dissolve inner blockages, and start allowing it to come to you much easier and faster than it would have otherwise.
Below are three steps to help you start letting go, so you can more easily receive what you want:
Step 1: Get clear about why you want it.
Be sure to focus especially on the emotions your desired outcome will create in you. When you have that loving relationship, will it make you feel more connected, loved, and supported? Write those key words on your list, and take a few moments to tune into those feelings now, as if you were already experiencing them every day.
Step 2: Build up your belief that you will have it.
Say to yourself, "I believe that I can have my heart's desires. I believe I deserve them, and I believe that they are already on the way to me right now." Even if you don't really believe that yet, keep saying it. The more you say it, the stronger your belief is going to grow, and eventually you really will believe it. And when you really do believe it, the universe is going to respond by sending more and more of the good stuff your way.
Step 3: Now, let go of it!
Why? Because the more you obsess over what you don't have, the more you're going to block your desire from coming to you. Instead, if you spend most of your time on things that make you feel good, you will actually start dissolving those inner blockages, and your desire can come to you much faster and easier.
It's okay to focus on your desire here and there too. I'm not saying you should never think about something you want. But when it does come to mind, be sure to think about it in a positive way, such as the three steps outlined above. Focus on why you want it, affirm your belief that you will have it, and then turn it back over to the universe to deliver it to you.
Remember: dwelling on it from a negative state of mind will only hold it back longer!
These three simple steps can help you to finally move out of the cycle of endless wanting, and into the free-flowing stream of joyful receiving. If you're ready for more abundance, more joy, more ease, more of everything good that you want, give it a try.
