The Art of Allowing: Learning to Let Go and Flow
This is how I’ve lived my life for quite some time now. I’ve gone with the flow…and I’m still here.
Some people spend their lives going against the flow. They worry and struggle. They work hard…very hard. They’re proud to have worked hard for all that they have. After all, that’s the way it’s supposed to be if you want to be successful in life, right?
That’s what I used to believe.
Now I believe that all I have to do is focus on feeling good and following my passion. For the past year I’ve worked on focusing my thoughts on what I do want. Everything else has fallen into place.
However, lately I’ve fallen back to old thought patterns surrounding money…
Business was a little slow last month, so I didn’t have that flow of money that I’ve been having. However, I did want my business to slow down - so that’s what I got. Be careful what you ask for!
I did ask for more money to flow in via my blogs, and although that is happening, I’m not quite where I want to be. I found myself wondering how I’m ever going to make more money with my blogs. My mind has been dwelling on it - even to the point of worry and frustration. I had to catch myself from falling back into the scarcity mindset trap.
I realized that I still haven’t quite mastered the art of allowing! There I was getting stuck on the “how” and not allowing The Universe to take over. This was the control freak in me wanting to make an appearance. So, I spent the day feeding my mind with positive thoughts and reconnecting with Source Energy (a.k.a. God). I also did a meditation and pictured myself on the river of life…going with flow.
Going with the flow feels good, doesn’t it? As I write this, I’m just allowing the words to flow. When I’m going with the flow, I feel really connected to Source Energy. Nothing else seems to matter much in the grand scheme of things.
Hopefully this post has made you more aware of where you stand when it comes to attracting money and abundance into your life. I know now that I should be staying focused on what I do want instead of what I don’t want. I did regress back to old beliefs, but I was able to stop myself before those thoughts spiraled out of control. Having that awareness makes a huge difference. Many people go days on end unaware of their thoughts - and they wonder why their life sucks!
Are you aware of your thoughts and beliefs? Are you going with the flow and allowing abundance to come to you instead of you chasing it? Have you mastered the art of allowing?
