Do you ever feel like you’re spinning your wheels trying to get things done? I know I do.
Sometimes I just keep powering through, though, trying to force things to happen the way I think they should, no matter how much struggle or time it takes.
Part of this is due to a little voice in my head telling me that if things aren’t hard to achieve then they’re not worth doing. I bet you’ve heard this voice, too.
But what if that voice is wrong? What if life is supposed to be easy?
You may be thinking, “that sounds great, but what about all of the things that have to get done? Who will do them if I just sit around waiting to see what happens?”
Don’t get me wrong; a life of ease still involves action, but it’s inspired action, taken from a place of connection and inner wisdom, and it’s the only way to get things done right the first time.
Believe it or not, I’ve found that when I live with a mindset of ease, I actually get more done.
Trusting that things will work out and then stepping back and allowing things to flow the way they’re supposed to allows paths and outcomes I hadn’t seen before to appear.
Doors magically open. Everything becomes clear.
This is the environment where creativity flourishes and ideas flow. The answers and solutions I’ve been searching for are right in front of me.
It’s all so easy.
In contrast, when I try to force things to go the way I think they should, it does nothing but cause difficulty and delay.
Then I get stressed and frustrated, which further acts like a dam blocking the stream of divine timing.
Relaxing, trusting, and letting go unblock the dam, allowing perfect outcomes and happy surprises to flow into my life.
In the world of ease, time becomes your friend, rather than your enemy. The perception of time even seems to magically expand.
Have you ever noticed that when you’re doing something you love, feeling joyful and just letting things flow, time stands still and you’re able to get an amazing amount of things done in a short period of time?
You can actually experience this efficiency every day, but only if you’re willing to surrender to your inner guidance system and allow things to happen as they will instead of trying to force things to go the way you think they should.
It takes a lot of trust to live this way, and I rarely get it right. But when I do, everything comes together beautifully.
I find I need a daily, hourly, even minute-to-minute reminder to let go, pry my clenched fingers from the steering wheel, and trust that everything is working out exactly the way it’s supposed to.
Today is the perfect day to practice this concept–think of something that’s not going the way you think it should, then let go of your limited thinking, ask for guidance, and take action only when inspired.
Give it a try. It’s kind of scary, I know, but the rewards are huge.
Expect wonderful things to happen. Then trust that they will.
