I found this post HERE… I hope you are inspired.
I believe trust is one of the most powerful elements of a truly abundant life. And it’s certainly a key part of the manifestation process.
It’s easy to get caught up in the doing. We often cannot detach ourselves from the process of creating the life we want, and this causes tension.
In other words, there is the tendency to want to take the wheel and be fully in control of the situation. Our egos convince us that in order to attain the life we desire we must furrow our brows, strain our shoulders & back, and work furiously toward the goal.
Hard work has its place. But it’s seriously overrated in most cases.
We really don’t need to struggle to have an amazing life. In fact all evidence suggests that creation wants to heap wonderful things on us day after day.
When I look back over my life, I see a clear pattern: Wonderful people have come into my life, and I’ve always had more than enough to be happy about.
There have been times of lack and struggle, but the truth is I created every single incident by resisting the natural flow or by being blatantly lazy. When I simply trust and allow I am always cared for and most of the time I receive more than I need.
A never-ending stream of marvelous suprises awaits each one of us. This, I believe is the nature of the life experience.
A great way to get in touch with your ability to trust the Universe is to take an unscheduled day off. Don’t work, don’t plan, and don’t spend any time worrying about your problems. Just take a day off to be grateful for everything you have and to listen for the subtle inspiration that will tell you what to do next.
You might not receive any clear signs. Then again your eyes may be forever opened by a life-changing event.
But the point of this exercise is really just to practice trusting. Be mindful of the fact that you will be cared for, and your needs will not only be met, but exceeded.
Often when people hear this, they counter with questions about suffering in the world. If creation cares about us why is there famine and disease around the world?
Well… I don’t know. I believe there is evidence to suggest that much of the pain and suffering in the world is manufactured by people who want to perpetuate such energies. But I don’t want to divert this post into a conspiracy theory so I’ll just say I don’t have the answer to why people suffer in starving nations.
But I do believe in the core principal of trusting creation or divinity to care for me. This realization has been profound for me. The truth that I am cared for and all my needs are seen to if I simply trust and allow is abundantly clear; I’ve seen it happen too many times in the past to discount it.
And I believe this can be true for others as well. In fact I think this level of cosmic trust is more powerful than any other method of accessing the law of attraction.
Joe Vitale calls it “Letting Go” in his book, The Attractor Factor. And I challenge all readers of this blog to look closely at the value of trusting and allowing over the next few days.
Is it possible that in doing this, we are letting our higher minds guide the course of our life? I believe so.
Our ego minds are incredible, and quite useful for many things in life. But as Eckhart Tolle eloquently points out, the always-thinking ego is of little use for determining who we really are.
Letting go and trusting is the act (or nonaction) of allowing divine inspiration to enter our lives. It is the detachment spoken of in ancient texts, and it is the key to blessings and fulfillment beyond anything we can conjure up with our ego.
