How often do you ask yourself why things happen or don’t happen? Why does some person get hurt, and other people seem to be lucky? The answer lies within us. If we want something badly enough, we’ll eventually receive it.
We live in a society where we are bombarded with information every day. We see advertisements everywhere, and we hear stories from friends and family members who’ve experienced similar situations. This constant bombardment of stimuli makes it very difficult to focus on our inner self.
To achieve success in life, we must develop the ability to detach ourselves from external influences and allow the universe to take care of us. In order to accomplish this, we must become aware of our thoughts and emotions, and then release them.

What Does It Mean To Let Go & Surrender To The Universe?
Simply put, giving your desire over to the Universe’s care implies you are surrendering it.
Because it propels your energy higher on the Emotional Guidance Scale, giving up control to a higher power enables you to manifest the things you want.
Your energy is controlling and full of fear when you’re not willing to let go of the result. You might be worrying whether your desire will come to fruition at all times. Your desire encounters a great deal of opposition from this low vibrational energy.
However, worry is the direct opposite of surrender. A testament to unshakable confidence in the Universe is the willingness to surrender.
You are willing to give up all control and let the Universe drive because you are so certain that it has your back.
As you can see, a desire that is surrendered and a desire that is not surrendered have completely different energies.
And in accordance with the Law of Attraction, you attract into your life whatever energy you put out. If you’re ready to practice letting go of your desires, check out the following 4 tips.
Why Should You Let Go & Surrender To The Universe?
You should give up control of your manifestation since it could take place much differently than you had anticipated.
For instance, you may manifest a completely new job instead of money from a promotion.
Or perhaps you meet someone you vibe with at a party rather than manifesting a relationship with a specific individual.
This is why it’s crucial to not limit how you envision your manifestation unfolding. Be open to new opportunities at all times.
Stay aligned with your desire, but be flexible about how it could manifest.
Never hesitate to accept new possibilities and acquaintances. You can’t predict where things will go.
Letting Go vs Giving Up
The difference between “letting go” and “giving up” is huge. “Giving up” means throwing away what you wanted because you didn’t think you could have it.
“Letting go” means allowing the universe to take care of the details and trust that whatever you receive will exceed your expectations.
When you give up, you’re saying there’s no way I’m getting what I want. You’re closing yourself off to infinite possibilities.
But when you let go, you’re opening yourself up to infinite possibilities…and receiving far more than you ever expected.
How To Trust The Universe
The Universe doesn’t care about our problems. We do.
We’ve been taught that we are responsible for everything that happens to us. If something goes wrong, it must be because we did something wrong. This belief is called the “ego.”
But the Universe doesn’t operate like that. The Universe operates on different rules.
What if there really is no such thing as fate? What if we are free to make choices and take actions?
If you believe that, you might find that you feel happier, healthier, and more positive.
You could start to trust the Universe again.
1. Accept Reality As It Is
Making peace with reality is about accepting what happened, whether good or bad, and moving forward.
For example, if someone says something hurtful to you, do you let it ruin the rest of your day? Or do you take a deep breath and say, “That person didn’t mean anything by it.” You don’t have to forgive them, but you’re able to move on.
When you come to terms with reality, you begin to believe that everything has SOME form of purpose. If you’ve ever been stuck trying to figure out why something happened, you know how frustrating that can be.
But when you make peace with reality and accept whatever happens, you realize there are no coincidences. Everything happens for a reason.
And since everything happens for a reason, you can start to see things differently. Instead of being mad at yourself over a mistake you made, you can look back and think, “Well, that was my lesson today.”
2. Understand That There Is A Divine Order
Have you ever experienced a time when you could look back and say that everything happened perfectly in a certain order without you even realizing it?
We’ve all had those times where we think about how our lives turned out exactly the way they did. Most people don’t realize that every event in their life is meant to happen in a certain order.
Think about it like this: If you were to take a piece of paper and write down every single thing that happens in your life, what would it look like? Would it go something like this: “I met my husband, I got married, I moved into our home, I had kids, I retired”? Of course not!
Your life looks much different because each event has meaning behind it. Some events are bigger than others, and some are smaller. But none of it is random. Everything that happens in your life is meant to unfold in a specific way. You just might not be aware of it yet.
When you trust that there is a higher power orchestrating your entire life, you’ll begin to live differently.
You’ll make better decisions, and you’ll become more patient. When you learn to step outside of your ego and accept that there is divine order in your life, you’ll feel happier and healthier.
3. Unlock The Channel To Begin Receiving
The Universe works best when we are receptive. If we’re focused on getting something, we block off the flow of love and light. We become like a baby, sitting there with our hands over our ears, saying “la la la I’m too busy to hear you!”
When we’re focused on being happy, healthy, successful, abundant, and joyful, we allow ourselves to receive whatever we desire. We don’t fight against life; we let go into the flow and trust that the universe knows exactly what we need.
We’ve been taught that we must focus on doing, achieving, and controlling. But when we’re truly present and open, we realize that we don’t know what we need until we ask. And asking isn’t always easy because we’re conditioned to think that we’ll never get what we want.
But the truth is that we’ve been asking since the beginning of time, and we’ve received everything we ever wanted. So why are we still struggling? Why do we keep believing that we won’t get what we want? Because we’re blocking the flow of love and energy that’s always available to us.
So here’s the thing: we need to stop thinking and start listening. If we sit quietly and listen deeply, the universe will speak to us. It will whisper in our ear and show us what we need to see and feel.
If we just lay down and close our eyes, the universe will take care of everything else. We don’t have to worry about what’s next, because the universe is always working behind the scenes to bring us into alignment with our highest good.
4. Appreciate And Feel Good
You’re at peace with reality because you know there is always enough.
You trust in a higher power rather than focusing on the negative aspects of life.
Your mind doesn’t focus on the future; it focuses on the present moment.
When you feel good, your vibrations raise.
When your vibrations rise, you align with your true self, who is vibrating at the frequency of every desire you’ve had.
Now that you’re receiving, you can actually see how the universe is affecting your life in a fascinating and enigmatic way.
How Long Does It Take To Let Go & Surrender To The Universe?
To surrender to the Universe, it might take up to 40 days of constant practice.
According to scientific studies, it typically takes 40 days to establish a new pattern or habit.
It might take 40 days of deliberate surrendering for the majority of us to break our pattern of controlling our lives and establish a new one.
You’ll discover that it gets easier to step back and allow the Universe take the lead as you have more practice surrendering your desire to the Universe and letting the Universe lead.
It takes practice to give yourself over to the Universe moment by moment. Remembering that the Universe is taking care of you simply takes a moment.
But maintaining consistency with surrender requires continuing to live in that state of surrender.
