For a head-person like myself, planning, creating structure and looking at least 5 steps ahead was the way to go. It was the way that made sense to me and felt comfortable and natural. Moving away from my head and let life role into open, unknown and unplanned directions is an extraordinary experience. Completely out of my comfort zone, I now try to follow my heart and even more important trust the flow.
To help me trust that flow, I keep looking back in time. “Which decisions were actually made by planning/structuring and what happened when I let go?” It is a mind-opening exercise as all substantial changes, wishes, experiences occurred when I did let go. I trusted the flow, I trusted myself by setting an intention towards a goal and have complete faith that it will materialize.
Like every transition or change, it is a puzzling transition though. If you are used to use your head, and trust it, letting it all go, feels awkwardly uncomfortable at times. But practice preaches, the more I let go, the more natural it will become. It feels free to trust the flow and ever more so trust myself.
