We must love the uncertainty of life in order to be open to what the universe has to offer.
A few years ago, I was completely uncertain about everything – my relationships and what direction I was going in (spoiler alert: I didn’t have direction at all!) I was living with people who treated me as if I wasn’t even there and I was barely making rent. It was probably the lowest I’d ever been, but eventually, I started studying the Law of Attraction and many times I came across the theme of being okay with not knowing; not knowing the future or what was to come, not knowing how a situation will play out, not knowing which direction to take.
And for quite awhile I totally struggled with that concept! Sometimes I still do. Like reading a good fiction novel, I absolutely want to know what is going to happen next! But real life does not work that way; there is no way to know for sure. My life now is so much better than it was before, and it is getting better every day, but there are things out of balance again and I am not sure of the who, what, where or whys. I’m just trying to be okay with it.
Letting Go Of Fear
Trusting the universe, when it comes right down to it, is about letting go of fear. Not knowing is scary as hell! We always worry about how we’re gonna make our next payments, or what our next step in life will be or where it will lead. And that’s pretty scary. Sometimes there is a lot on the line and not knowing scares us because it is not always within our control. But ever notice how things usually just kind of work themselves out? Some extra money comes in unexpectedly, or you get a random helpful phone call or message from a friend or colleague who has just the solution you needed? That is the universe, my dears. But it works best when we stop being afraid and know that there is always a way; everything will work out exactly as it should for the highest good of all.
When we embrace the uncertainty of life we are allowing ourselves to be completely open to the opportunities the universe brings our way. We are not attached to one outcome and one outcome only. We are simply open and that allows the universe to flow through us more easily, creating what basically amounts to miracles (remember that unexpected money from earlier?)
Letting Go of Control
With fear comes the need to control (or is it the other way around!?) We want things to turn out exactly as we’ve pictured them. We want what we want how we want it and when we want it! The truth though, is that that is just not how it works. Sometimes things turn out exactly how we thought they would (which is funny when you think about the law of attraction right?!) but most of the time it’s only close to how we thought, or not even close at all. Remaining open to how the universe wants to deliver you your desires is key. Let go of control, and fear, and see how that changes everything.
During times of change and unrest, our emotions can run the gamut - you will probably feel every single emotion you could possibly feel. That’s natural. Of course you’re going to feel that way! Keeping a positive attitude is what will help get you through it, and will keep all these changes on the highest possible level. Remember, what you’re feeling and thinking is creating your reality! So positive thinking is the way to go here. Meditation, Creative Visualization, Exercise; these are all great ways to stay positive!
Embracing the Unknown
Letting go of the need to know is not easy. And we are never rid of uncertainty. We will always go through periods of unrest, always question our lives, but when we can let go, it’s like the whole world opens up and suddenly there are more opportunities arising that we would never have thought of going after. It’s amazing how much life can change just by changing our minds. So love the uncertainty, love the idea that anything can happen and have fun at the same time and watch the world open up.
