I will let things go that are beyond my control.
Theme of the Day
Sometimes it’s okay to take a step back from a difficult situation so you can get a different perspective on it.
Have you ever been in a situation where there seems to be no way out? You feel like you’ve done everything possible, but nothing seems to work. A few weeks ago, a client came to me and had a messy situation in which she wanted solutions for because she felt she had tried everything. As I laid down the cards and translated the energies before me, I shared with her, “Do nothing.”
She was upset. The concept of doing nothing did not sit well with her because she was a person who took action. SOMETHING had to be done about this unjust situation.
It was apparent her energy was scattered and her mind stressed. We did some breathing exercises and she centered her energy. I restated that for the situation she was in, it was suggested that she do nothing and here was why: sometimes it’s best to allow things to settle before taking action. This way she could see much clearer after the dust had settled.
I just want people to take a step back, take a deep breath and actually look at something with a different perspective. But most people will never do that. – Brian McKnight
The Hanged Man has a single angle tied to a tree and he hangs upside down. There is no sense of urgency with him. He has his hands tied behind his back, and it’s difficult to see exactly what he’s doing with them. The leg that is not bound, remains relaxed as if he as the internal confidence that he will get out of this situation in due time.
There may be times in your business where you feel that taking constant action is the best way towards abundance, when it’s quite the opposite. Sometimes entrepreneurs put themselves in a situation where there is no way they’re going to reap prosperity and abundance. This is okay because the only thing to do sometimes is to surrender. Raise your hands up, take a step back, and allow the universe to take care of the rest.
It’s one thing to try to control everything, it’s another to realize that not everything can be controlled. Some things in life just have to be left alone and allowed to take it’s own course.
It’s just so cool when you meet people who are different than you are. That can give you a different perspective, a viewpoint on life, or inspire you. I mean, what would the world be like if we were all the same. I think it would be very boring. – Ciara (Musician)
