Giving up control

January 1, 2021
“Get out of your head and get into your heart. Think less, feel more.” ~Osho 

To some extent, we all want to have control. 

Some of us are more controlling than others. We want to try to control situations and/or others. The reason we do this is out of anxiety and worry that if we don't maintain control things will go wrong. 

2020 was undeniably a tough year. But, it was also a tremendous year for personal growth. 

Looking back, trying to maintain control in instances where I lacked it, it starts linking back to a lot of the strong emotions and feelings I was having. 

I spent a lot of time calculating and scheming up different plans, drawing them all out, seeking to have control. All this really did was create anxiety, stress, and made me feel very imbalanced. 

It hadn’t really hit me until late in December, when working with a healer. My obsession for control and analysis was deteriorating me from the inside out. 

Giving up control is going to be extremely challenging but also tremendously beneficial. 

Listening to my heart and then acting from it has started to ground me, increasing my sense of presence and awareness. It’s putting my forth on a path of truth and expressing my most authentic self. 

Without trying to control the mind has no boundaries and the discoveries are endless.
