No matter what process you use to achieve or attract your goals there is something needed to make it all work. Releasing is a technique for realizing freedom. But that freedom does come at a price. The price is the willingness to not just to let go but to grow.
When you let go something significant happens. When the inner energy of a constricted emotional state is released that energy begins to flow. And as it moves it changes its environment, that is, it changes you. If it didn't you couldn't attain your goal.
What we call the objective universe is actually a reflection of us. You look around and see yourself. When you truly release something you change and as a result, the universe changes around you. It reconstructs itself to reflect your new level. To think that you can achieve your goal without having an internal shift occur is self-deceiving. The shift must occur. No shift, no goal.
I work with a lot of people and there is something I have noticed. Often people need to grow into their goals. If your goal is have a million $ a year income you need to grow into a person that makes a million $ a year. If you aren't making that now you haven't released enough. You haven't released the resistance to growing into your goal. You haven't yet developed into that level of activity. You can't become a big success while you act and think like a little success.
So pay attention not just to the negative states and beliefs you are letting go of but pay attention to who you are. Are there behaviors or attitudes you have that are inconsistent with your goal? Are you claiming that you really want freedom but are acting out of integrity with that desire? Are you living out your goal as best you can in the moment? Are you investing in yourself to develop yourself into the person who attains the goal easily? Releasing is a great technique for achieving that but more fundamental than knowing how to release is the commitment to your goal.
Commitment is not duty, it is heart. If you really want something you are willing to sacrifice to get it. You decide what is important to you and you live that conviction. If you really want freedom and the inner power that it brings you sacrifice anything in your life that does not lead to that end. This develops the character and will grow you into the type of person who easily and consistently attracts the fruition of their goals.
