Do you find yourself struggling with letting go of control? Do you want to live in the present, but your head is over thinking? You are not the only one! It’s pretty common to feel this way. I’ve mentioned in many blog posts of mine, but growing up, I’ve always been a control freak.
Part of it is my personality and just living in a fast-paced world, especially being based in Silicon Valley.
When I go to my part-time job and talk to friends and family, everywhere around me I see people who are simply rushing. I find them analyzing and nitpicking. I find them thinking too much about the past or future.
And then I find myself sinking into those patterns. I start thinking about my life, job, relationship. I get so jittery!
Then it hits me: Why I can’ t just let myself be? Be still and find joy in the moment.
Control Versus Surrender
The reason why you can’t let yourself be is because subconsciously you feel by thinking and analyzing you will feel safe and in control.
Being in control is about feeling safe in the unknown. It’s an ego pattern that doesn’t allow you to connect deeply to your soul.
It takes active practice and self-awareness to move out of this pattern. To let go and surrender. So your inner energy can guide you.
Feeling More, Thinking Less
Surrendering starts with feeling more. It’s about thinking less. It’s about connecting to the magical energy inside you and letting it overcome you.
