I can be a real control freak sometimes. I like my house a certain way, all the pillows lined up, the throws in their perfect place, everything tidy.
In my relationships, I often see how much I want to control the way people do things. I want to intervene, give my two cents, or I'll just do it myself because I can probably get it done faster, better.
Can you relate?
I saw Wyatt Web on the Dr. Oz show and he shared the following tips for how to let go of control.
I thought they were simple (not easy!) yet brilliant.
Who can't use a good reminder sometimes that we're just not in control? Then, we can give it over to our higher power and breathe easy. How's that sound?
3 Steps to Let Go of Control:
- Let go of the illusion of control- Let go of it. It's not going to happen, never has happened, and it never will. You have choice, but you don't have control.
- Stress is self-created, don't manage stress, prevent it- All behaviors are learned. Stress is self-created. You learned how to create stress, it's a product of this culture, you can learn how to un-create it.
- Examine your own belief system & not others'- You don't have the right to question other people's beliefs, you DO have an obligation to question your own belief systems, figure out what you believe and behave from a place of integrity.
Here's a great quote I came across from another wise elder that relates. I just love it.
"What would your life be like if instead of trying to manifest things, you simply turned everything over to your own personal Divine Beloved (the eternal, all knowing aspect of you) and then just relaxed and waited to be shown what to do. What a relief, eh? Whether the issue is medical treatment, childcare, or a relationship, a perfect solution has already been picked. You just have to know how to align with it." ~ Dr. Christiane Northrup
