Lately I have been practicing using a new phrase. You may have heard it before, it's not actually a new phrase - I'm just new to using it.
I started because I've been having a hard time letting things go. I want to know WHEN and HOW. I'm getting caught up in the making it happen, which usually results in nothing happening. I wanted to get back to the allowing, but I felt like I had fallen down a well and there was no rope to climb back out on.
The more I've been falling into these angsty feelings of control and doubt, the more I can feel myself contracting. The more I contract, the more I'm not receiving, and that just makes me more angsty, like I'm coiling up tighter and tighter.
As I looped round and round in this, I decided to change the wording. I know what I want, but now I'm asking for this or something better. If I don't get it, no big deal. Something better will come along.
This or something better
Whew! That took so much pressure off. I felt like I could breathe again, and like I opened a window to fresh air for the first time in months. I had found my rope, and I was climbing back out of the narrow confines of angst.
If you are spinning around in your own head, try using this phrase. It might be just what you need in order to relax, let it go to a higher source, and let in the inspiration, support and energy you need.
"I want this apartment, but I'm letting it go, because I know I'll get this or something better."
"I would LOVE to get that job, but I'm not worried about it, because I know I'll get it, this or something better."
"I really really really super duper want to manifest a million dollars, but whatevs, because if I don't get it, I'll get something even better."
