Going into 2018, we all need to remember to relax. It’s in a state of rest that everything in our lives begins to manifest. When we’re overwhelmed, the Universe is sending us creativity, but we don’t embrace it all.  The overwhelming feeling we feel when it seems like we have so much on our plate comes from expectations and restrictions we put on ourselves. True living and creation is free-flowing.

The truth is life is hard, but it’s not as complicated as we make it out to be. We see hardships in front of us and magnify them. We view blessings in front of us and minimize them. We need to start putting more focus on the good in our lives rather than the bad. Focusing and attention manifests into reality,

Here are a few things you can do that will allow you to relax more.

 

Don’t Do Things For The Outcome

The first thing you have to do to be able to relax is drop all of your expectations. That doesn’t mean to completely get rid of goals or visions; it simply means to not feel attached to the outcome. If you have a vision or goal, know what it is, but then release it to the Universe and know that the Universe works for you. We need to drop the idea that we have control over how our lives will turn out. We can do the best we can and prepare, but at some point, we have to give up power and let what we create have a chance to manifest. Knowing that everything you want to come to fruition is manifesting in the background should give you the confidence needed to take a break.

 

Everything In Your Life Is There For A Reason

You’re always where you’re supposed to be in this moment; this is a hard lesson for me to grasp, to be honest. Know it to be true, but I always fall out of this frame of thinking. I try to manufacture my life by trying to continually change my thoughts and beliefs to the “right” ones, so my life manifests in the way that I want. Truthfully, I need to take more time to look at what’s in front of me and with curiosity ask, “why is this happening in my life right now?” Instead of always trying to be one step ahead of the Universe I need to appreciate what’s in front of me.

All experiences, people, everything, is in your life for a reason. Let the Universe show you why and improve accordingly.

 

Life Doesn’t Happen To You, It Happens For You.

This is one of the biggest lessons that I’ve recently been learning. I used to look at the world like it was trying to ruin me. I’m starting to see it as something that’s building me up. Something that’s trying to help me and not destroy me That gives me the confidence to not be so hard on myself. I used to operate out of the place like I had to outsmart the world, but now I try to use it to my benefit.

The Universe is always working to put you in a place of success and joy. We need to remember that and act out of love and not fear.

Knowing all of this, hopefully, you feel some confidence, and you’re ready to take some time to relax. In that space of relaxation, I want you to remember one thing.

 

Calmness Equals Creation

In your calmest moments is the time where the most creation will happen. You’ll infuse with inspiration, and then you can act on it and become a motivation. When your mind is quiet, it allows space for the Universe to talk to you. You’ll hear great ideas arise; you’ll have epiphanies and revelations.

Remember to take time to relax. It’s one of the most important spaces that we ignore, and it’s necessary to manifest a life that we want.
