We often want it so badly that we ruin it before it begins. If this sounds familiar, read on…
Regardless if it is that project dear to your heart or the man of your dreams…More often than not, we are Overthinking. Overanalysing. Fantasizing. Expecting. Worrying. Doubting.
We think we are trying so damn hard to get there, yet, it is exactly those limiting beliefs that are stopping us from getting what we want and where we want to be.
We need to take a deep breath, take a step back, surrendering and just LET. IT. BE.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying you shouldn’t take action or listen to your intentions or your heart’s desires. Do that within your power and more, then… walk away.
Let it evolve, naturally.
Give it space to grow in its own pace.
Leave room for miracles to happen.
This is the secret for pure creativity and freedom, especially if creativity is a big part of your work or life.
It took me a while to really see the beauty of ‘let it be’ through the very first few months of running Feng Shui Serenity. Being a perfectionist as well as a serial planner from my past life in media, I found it hard to let go of all my expectations, deadlines and goals. There are a lot of self-imposed pressures to compete, to compare and to forge ahead. The worry of not knowing exactly the direction I should be taking for my business also got the better of me…
It is through this process that I learnt that to ‘detach from the outcome and let it be’ is the key to success, to what your heart desires, and to achieve so-called miracles that our conscious mind can never imagine.
Whenever you have an expectation, there is a risk of not meeting it. Therefore it brings worries and doubts.
Whenever you have an expectation, it also means you have chosen one or a few, instead of infinite, possibilities.
Expectations to a specific outcome freeze our desire into a rigid framework, and this interrupts the natural flow that nature intended. It is only when I stopped fussing, worrying and doubting if my website would turn out to be the one I have imagined, that the creative energy really flowed between me and my web-designer, the beautiful soulful entrepreneur Eos Koch. The end result – the site of Feng Shui Serenity is not exactly what I imagined at the start, but it is exactly the creative expression that represents me now. It is that feeling that your heart jumps out and say ‘YES’, and you feel the flow of joy.
So whichever way you light up the world, or whatever desires you have filled within your heart, feel it, and then release it into the UNKNOWN. That’s when miracles happen.
