“Make A Step-by-Step Plan” | Let go Control

Let Go of Control; Let go of Planning adiction. Sometimes you need to Surrender

Hi. Don’t make a step by step plan. Just start what you want to do. 

Thank you, that is it. 

Ok, it is simple like that, but I always give you a reason to believe pour me. I am the queen of planning, I was born in 17 years old parents family, I believe I become the responsible girl I didn’t have as an adult parent. They were great, don’t get me wrong, but they were learning to be adult when I was a child, this can affect people.

So, there was I, fanatic for planning, lists, do the expected thing. And I end up in an engineering university, the King of PLAN! It was so serious this aspect in the university that I listen to some professors say, plan it is great it is what we are teaching you, but don’t try the perfection because you won’t arrive there and the plan will always be in the paper. And here I want to share a series I saw or the process I love and this series explores. It calls Silicon Valley and the process they use is the Scrum. It started as a software development process, but nowadays many companies in the world use those principals. They understand that time for planning should be minimum and efficient, and the rest of the time you must work on it. You can put your app online before it is perfect and improve it with time and people’s necessities. Do it for yourself!

When you plan too much your ego wants to see the result for there and if you know the Universe has infinite ways to work, you know and you probably experienced moments where results come from where you least expected, no matter how much your read about it or planned it! 

And the second point I would like to raise is that many of our goals are not so “planneble”. I wanted to live abroad for a year, I didn’t have the money or contacts or family abroad. I didn’t want to save for 60 years, with luck be alive, to live it. So I forgot the planning part, I prayed, I meditated, I let go when I felt I had it. God would send me this experience. The opportunity came and I act on it. I lived abroad, by the way, I am recording some videos about those places I visited here: Youtube EmMa Lopes 

Don’t feel guilty if you can’t plan it, or you can’t see how to do it. Do your spiritual technique, that one that makes you feel connected with higher energy and let this be your plan. I can also share that I had a cousin fighting a deadly disease and after I prayed for a while I felt the disease was gone, no matter what news I received I knew he was ok. He is full of health nowadays. Despair didn’t help, the despair of not be able to control it can make you lose any opportunity. 

If you want to start a business, start a blog, write a book, sing. Do how you can do it. I saw kids learn to sing opera online and later be on Andre Rieu stage singing in Europe, she didn’t plan it. She learned as she could, she applied to a tv show when the opportunity appeared to her, the rest is history. Hitler looks for astrological advice before each battle, for good and for bad, sometimes what you believe it is enough to make your move, you can plan a bit, but never think everything will be done by yourself and that you can control everything. Let the Unknown work by Itself, since you know clearly what you want to. (May be this be clearer about what you want).

I hope this helps if you are in that “I don’t know how to do it” moment or if you a control freak like I used to be.
