Letting Go

I know that letting go of the outcome of my health is essential to healing. Even if healing means that I will not get medically well. I get this idea from the Law of Attraction.

When using the LoA, first you set your intention, then you let the outcome go and get into action. As I understand it, holding onto the outcome is really holding onto a feeling of desperation, lack and mistrust which only attracts more of those feelings. For the LoA to work, you have to believe in and trust that the LoA works.

Okay, that is the theory. The practice is a completely different animal. Have you ever set an intention and then wondered if you set it the “correct” way? Have you continued to think about how the outcome will show up? Have you questioned if it even will? Those questions are an indication that you have not let go. They continue to keep focus on the problem and the fact that the problem still exists.

I am coming to realize that releasing really means making peace with the worst-case-scenario. Fear is what keeps our grip on the outcome so tight. When we are freaked out that pain and suffering might be in the future, it is in our nature to ruminate over how to avoid those experiences at all costs. To do that, we hold on with a vice-grip to try to control what happens.

Here I sit, grappling with the paradox of focusing on health and relaxing into the idea of being ill. Releasing fear and control so that tranquility and joy can rush in. Knowing that the real outcome I want is healthy thoughts and emotions, letting go of how those show up.
