Currently I’m reading the book “Letting go : The pathway of surrender” and It’s about how to Let go of your attachments and desires ,how to let go of your emotions that bind you and keep you miserable .This book is really transforming and life-changing ,it puts everything in perspective I have to share this simple technique of Letting go becoz its results is mind-blowing 


Here’s an excerpt from the book


“Here was the initial experience with letting go of desire.

Personal goals were written down, followed by a letting go of the desire for them. It sounds paradoxical but that is the process: identify the goals and then let go of wanting them. One goal that had been held in mind for several years was an apartment in New York City, because work commitments required a lot of commuting and money spent on hotel rooms. A small apartment in the city—a so-called pied-à-terre—would be the economical solution. “Apartment in New York City” was written down as a goal. When utilizing this way of achieving goals, we include all of the details, as impossible as they may seem to the rational mind to achieve. So, the ideal apartment was detailed: reasonably priced, on Fifth Avenue in the 70s block, right next to an entrance to Central Park, at least eight or nine floors up and in the rear so that the street noise would be minimized, and not any bigger than about two and a half rooms.”


“The next day at work, it was busy as usual, with a big caseload, meetings, and patient visits. In between the meetings and patients, the feeling of wantingness for the apartment would be acknowledged and let go. And, as the day progressed, the apartment was actually forgotten. At 4:30 P.M., after the last patient, there was suddenly the impulse to drive into the city. Despite the fact that it was ostensibly rush hour, the road was clear and the drive took only half an hour. The car cruised to about 73rd and Lexington, pulling up to the nearest real estate office. Rather magically, there happened to be a parking space open right in front of the real estate office. The real estate officer, upon hearing the tongue-in-cheek announcement that an apartment on Fifth Avenue was desired, looked with surprise and said, “Well, you are certainly in luck! Exactly one hour ago we listed the only apartment for rent on all of Fifth Avenue, at 76th Street, on the ninth floor. It’s the rear apartment, two and a half rooms, and the rent is reasonable (rent-controlled at $500.00 a month). It has just been painted and you can move in any time.” So we walked over and viewed the apartment. It fit the description of the goal exactly. The lease was signed on the spot! Thus, within 24 hours of trying the letting go technique on a specific personal goal, the goal was a reality. It had been something that was almost impossible to find, and yet it happened exactly as pictured, effortlessly, and with no negative emotions. It was an easy and joyous experience.

This is not an unusual experience but a typical one, because in this case the desire was moderate and could, without much effort, be totally surrendered. By being totally surrendered, this means that it was okay if the apartment happened, and it was okay if it didn’t. Because of being totally surrendered, the impossible became possible, manifesting itself effortlessly and rapidly.”

 

when I read that I was skeptical,I thought this is too good to be true and only lucky people find things that easy but I was willing to give this experiment a try 

I wrote my goal down and I started with something small and it was buying clothes 

I wrote everything I wanted : the color,the price ,the size and the feelings It would make me feel when I wear it 

And then I let it go ,I said to myself wether I find it or not ,it’s okay with me and that’s the most important step of letting go and I went to a certain shop I know and lo and behold I found everything I wanted almost as I wrote it down ,it blew my mind .I said this technique really works!

And it’s so simple and anyone can do it ,choose any goal you want, write it down and be very specific ,write everything you want then let go of that goal ,say to yourself “it’s okay wether I have this thing or not ,it’s okay with me” .you also have to feel it deeply within you ,you can’t just say the words while your feelings are telling you something else .work on it and every time you feel attached to your goal ,let it go and voila it manifests in front of your eyes ,what a joyful experience 🙂

Life is meant to be easy ,just give it a try and see for yourself like I did.
