Here’s something that I know to be true. When you want something to happen in your life, instead of worry and anxiety taking over, you let it go. Deepak says when you become detached, you become open to whatever happens. This was a big lesson for me. I liked to CONTROL everything that happen to me as much as possible. This way of living causes so much stress and we all know what stress does to the body. I can see how much more I’m in the flow now. But, even before I learned this lesson, there was a time in my life where this was working in my life and was crystal clear.
When my husband and I decided to start a family we thought once I went off the pill, I would immediately get pregnant. Isn’t that why I took the pill for so long? Because it’s so easy to get pregnant! Well, that was not the case for us. Month after month, nothing. My ob/gyn had me charting and taking my temperature and was taking medication all to help the process along. But, after a certain amount of time, she sat us down and told us she’s done all she could and was referring us to a fertility specialist. I was shocked. Why couldn’t I get pregnant? We moved forward and made an appointment with the specialist. In the meantime, I decided to “let it go”. I could not let it consume me. Shortly before our scheduled appointment, my husband and I took a trip to Colorado for a family reunion. When we got back and I went back to work, I remember being tired. Really tired. I was actually fighting to keep my eyes open on the way home from work at five in the afternoon. I thought, “wow, this is some serious jet lag I have!” On day two of feeling this way, I mentioned to my girlfriend at work how I was feeling. She knew my fertility issues and said “maybe you’re pregnant.” Honestly, I did not even consider this to be a possibility. But, I had still been taking my medication and doing all my tracking, so that day on the way home from work, I bought a pregnancy test. My husband was home, chatting on the phone with his brother while I slipped away to take the test. And there it was. I was pregnant!! I didn’t even wait for my husband to hang up the phone! I just yelled out “I’m pregnant!”
I truly believe the act of letting go helped tremendously in me getting pregnant. I left it up to the universe and the universe responded. Once the worry and control were gone, things happened the way they were supposed to.
Have you ever had a moment in your life where you let go? What was the outcome? I’d love to hear about it! Please comment below! Thank you for being here!
