10 Ways to Let Go and Let God

Letting go and Letting God/Source is the solution for a life which allows flow, growth, appreciation, and peace.

A lot of us struggle with trying to control our lives and the world around us and in the process, we try to control the people, places, and things that are not ours to control. This is the source of most chaos, resentment, arguments, fighting, and fear.

Letting go and Letting God/Source is the solution for a life which allows flow, growth, appreciation, and peace.

1. Ask for guidance

Upon awakening, ask your Higher Power for guidance throughout the day.

2. Notice what you are feeling when you are feeling it

Become aware of the actions that you take when you feel certain ways. Are you reaching for food, an alcoholic beverage unnecessarily or depriving yourself of rest or exercise with excuses or justifications? Ask yourself what is going on inside and how are you feeling about it. Then ask your Higher Power (whatever that may be) to remove anything that is blocking you from being your best self.

3. Become aware of being hungry, angry, lonely or tired

H.A.L.T. literally, stop and then allow yourself to address your needs.

4. Breathe deeply and then let it out

Picture yourself releasing all anxiety and negativity from yourself.

5. Recognize the good things in any situation and give thanks

My mother and father are extremely ill, but they are still here, my son is healthy, and my friends and significant other are beyond supportive. I remain grateful even for the pain.

6. Stay in gratitude

Choose an attitude of gratitude. Give thanks for all that is and trust that your higher powers plan is bigger than yours and better. (It’s okay to not understand everything.)


7. Be in the moment

The present is a gift. It is all we are given. Accept this, using the moment as if you will never have it again because you won’t.

8. Do your best and forget the rest

You are human. You will make mistakes, but you are trying to become your best self. Give yourself credit while you learn along the way. You got this!

9. Journal

Write down any anxieties, worries, anger or fear. Let them bind to the paper and leave your skin. When needed apologize, ask for forgiveness and make amends.

10. Meditate

Meditation at night relaxes you for a peaceful sleep.Listen to your heart. Quiet your mind. Rest your body, mind, and spirit. Life is but a dream.

When we detach ourselves from all people, places, and things, we are able to observe them as they are. We learn about ourselves. We free ourselves and those around us. Giving up control doesn’t mean we can’t set goals and have ideas for our plans, it just means we trust the flow of life and know that the waves are more powerful.

The current is going to flow in the right direction. All is well.

Let go and Let God.

I loved when the wisest Dr. Wayne Dyer closed one of his talks with this little childhood hymn. I think it floats perfectly right here.

“Row, Row, Row your boat gently down the stream, merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily, life is but a dream.”

I just finished reading the article about intuition, the let go and let God one and how to quit overthinking. All 3 were powerful and very helpful especially Bryant’s article on overthinking, something I tend to do. So a big thank you to all 3 authors for your guidance.

Beautiful article, full of so much goodness, Love and Gratitude. I am asking for Divine Guideline constantly and each night before I go to bed and most days upon waking 🙂 I really believe in truly feeling what you’re feeling and staying in Gratitude (through hi’s and low’s). I love journaling and meditation as well. Thanks so much for these lovely tips <3

10 wonderful suggestions! Learning to let it go and give it to our higher power is the best thing a person can do for their mental state as well as their physical state. You have reinforced many of the things we need to do in our lives. Thank you for writing such a wonderful article and I look forward to reading more ❤️

I think it is hardest to let go when what you have to let go of are family members, loved ones, or beliefs that have been ingrained in you since childhood. When you have somehow taken into your mind that things are “supposed to” be a certain way, any other way brings turmoil. Expectations not met are great trouble for you then. As you get older and find out not everyone lives like that, there are other ways, other beliefs, other opportunities, it is enlightening but also frightening at times. That is when you must decide to live according to old beliefs or grow into new ones. It is painful at first, then delightful and liberating. You must learn, make choices, grow, repeat, all your life long. Finding your truths to hold on to throughout life is a wonderful accomplishment! We cannot all be exactly the same, and how boring that would be anyway! So steps to letting go are wonderful tools to use! Realizing we are not all in the same place of growth helps you give others the space to be themselves without judgement. Realizing that we do not all have to hold the same beliefs, we all have those choices to make, helps you give others the freedom to be themselves. Realizing that commerce, governments, religions, etc all have their own agendas and are trying to influence you helps you realize the choice is yours to make. Realizing there are so many false ideas in the world spurs you on to finding truth. Letting go becomes easier. Growth quickens. Truth prevails.

This is exactly what I’m into these last days. I’ve decided to put the conservative ways aside and take things their way. Since 2012 some of my cousins have been mistreating my mom and insulting her while their mother (my mom’s elder sister) is there and witnesses everything without saying a word. Everytime some people and mom sometimes, call me, here where I’m studying, and tell me about what’s happened to her but I always try to be the nice one and tell my mom to stay cool and ignore them because I wanted to keep our family’s integrity. One day I called the girl (my cousin) hoping to have an explanation about what was happening and then try to find a way out, she called secretly her mom and put me on high-speacker so, her mom could hear what I was going to say. I said what I had to, without being rude, and when I finished, her mother (my aunt took the phone and try to explain and defend herself and her daughter’s acts. I told her I didn’t want the family to be ruptured, let’s together find solution for all that ’cause this is not what granny would like for us. And she told me “you’re perfectly right my son. What you’re saying is the pure truth but please, don’t let many useless thoughts make you lose control and keep you from doing what you are there for. Finish your studies and once you are here maybe there’s going to be a way out.” We’ve talked about about many things and I thought something would change but a week later one of her daughters restart the same dance. I called my mom and told her never to their house again because they might do that since she keeps going there. However the girls keep their usual stuff and even do and say worse than ever done. I’ve tried what I could trying to honour my grandma’s memory as she never liked her family being in trouble but things are getting worse and worse each and every day. Everytime I hear what was happening there while I’m so distant from home, I feel my heart broken but I never stopped praying God for justice and blessings, praying him to bring peace to my family and the whole world. It’s really hard to judge two people you love and respect when it doesn’t work between them anymore.
All these years they’ve been doing what they wanted to my mom, saying bad things about her and their mother never said a word till last week when my little sister could take it no more and told them what she had to. They all get mad and furious. My aunt went to my mom’s house and said to her that she doesn’t want her as sister, she doesn’t want to see her anymore because she (mom) asked her daughter (my young sister) to insult them (aunt and cousins).
I find that too selfish and hypocritical. Last week when I heard that, I realized that if I don’t stand for my mom, I will lose her while her sister and nieces are enjoying. I had to do something and I did it. I didn’t say mean things as it’s still my aunt but I warned them.
Now they may think and say whatever they want but the message I sent them will surely break them apart or they’ll get their consciousness up. As you said it upper in the article we need sometimes to be aware and learn to let it go and make a fresh start. There was a great difference between giving up and leaving a war that’s actually not yours. I’ve been thinking all this time to fight for the unity and best of the family but I realized that it could be harmful to me and my mom. Now, I feel good and free as the air. Thank you very much for sharing this.

Congratulations for the beautifully written article. Yes, letting go and giving everything in God’s hand, take care of things. I have gone through years trying to save a relationship and finally have to let go. Letting go gives me the power to be myself. The power to do other things in life.

Asking for guidance and setting intention are powerful way to walk into any situation.

Mindfulness is necessary to be aware of ourselves in the moment.

Self-care is something that is so easily overlooked.
The simple act of breathing, especially deep breathing can be so incredibly calming.
Living in gratitude makes each day feel like a treasure.
Sometimes it is necessary to just have faith that there is method to the madness. There is some greater purpose being served. Sometimes we just have to let go of wondering why.
Life is only ever happening now. It’s important to be in your life, in the here and now or you’ll miss it.
Your best is your best. No one can take away your intent. Mistakes happen, but we can always return to intent.
Journaling, and free-flow writing is an awesome way to tune into your feelings and see your truth. An invaluable tool.
Meditation gives us a peace that we can we can carry with us into everything. Like an anchor of stability in a storm.
Loved this article Melissa. Well done! <3

I LOVE this brilliant article beyond words my incredible sister!!! Every single word resonated so deeply and spoke straight to my soul. I especially love this line – “When we detach ourselves from all people, places, and things, we are able to observe them as they are. We learn about ourselves. We free ourselves and those around us. Giving up control doesn’t mean we can’t set goals and have ideas for our plans, it just means we trust the flow of life and know that the waves are more powerful. The current is going to flow in the right direction. All is well.” So much divine truth and wisdom. These 10 Steps are SO important in all of our daily lives, so powerful and so near and dear to my heart – I try to practise them all daily in order to surrender my ego to my Spirit, cultivate ever deepening faith and ultimately Let Go and Let God. It’s not always easy, but it is so worth it. Thank you for sharing your powerful wisdom and brilliant gifts beautiful goddess. Love this so much. Love YOU so much Melissa. <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

Letting go and letting God has helped me many times throughout my life. Although sometimes it can feel hard to do. And that’s when we need to hear words like these to help remind us and get us back on track!

Beautiful article….. Words I have heard so many times in my 67 years of life. “You have to learn to let it go.”
First I lost my husband of 43 years to the horrible side effects of Agent Orange, that slowly took his life away little by little. We were best friends as well as husband and wife. It was very hard to learn to let go of all the things that were “us” or “we”, and learn to say “i” and “me”.That was 3 1/2 years ago.
Now I am facing losing my baby brother, for partly the same reason (Agent Orange) as well as a very bad heart (hereditary) and bad lungs. We have become very close to each other since a few years before my husband died. We had a very dysfunctional family growing up and we had lost contact over the years. He is 9 years younger than me and from the time he was born til I left home at 18. I was practically his “mother”. He and I are finally back together, and now this. He has a heart that is only functioning at 22% and he is a real trooper. He is active, at least, instead of bedridden for now, and we are trying to make the most of every minute we have together. We have traveled and are now living in Thailand. We were born and lived in the US until we moved here about a year ago. I just can’t believe I may have to “let go” yet another time. I try not to think about it, but it is ever present.
I must say though, I am ever so grateful for having had a loving marriage for all the years we had, and also for the second chance to have my brother back in my life again. I try to remember to thank God everyday for all I have and I pray for His guidance when I once again have to “let go”

I’ve read alot of these comments and some of these bring back alot of bad memories from my childhood and my 13 yrs marriage that I have LET GO and have forgiven the people in my past that ever wronged me or betrayed or harmed me in anyway over my lifetime. But letting go gave me the power to be able to be a single mom and raise my amazing Daughter (29) who is about to graduate from nursing school. Eight years ago I met the love of my life who was showed me the way a woman was supposed to really be treated and also what a real man really was.. We were so in love…we got the news I was pregnant and he was ecstatic it was his first child and I was told I was never suppose to have children again BUT I was freaking out we were both 40. I was pregnant at 40.. I cried and cried because of my age and he would laugh telling me I was silly that middle aged moms were the ” in thing” lol. Anyway our Son was born we were one happy family. I worked in Medical as I had been for 21 yes and he was an Electrical Lineman. We were living the dream both good jobs, happy in love our baby boy healthy happy and one day at work I got a call saying he was electrocuted in the bucket and he was deceased. I had just spoken to him 20 minutes before this. So it now has been 6 years and 2 months since his passing. Our son was 17 months old and 5 months after him passing our son would not talk so I had him tested for Autism and yes Our son has Autism (ASD). I resigned from my job where I was a branch manager to pour myself into my son and get him everything he needs. We moved in with my mom who got a divorce about that time so we could help eachother because I had to cut back since I had left my job and she couldn’t make her mortgage on her own. So she begged me to move in with her. Me and my mom have always been super close and good friends. I looked at it as sum help with my lilman was better than no help. And I was so depressed and greiving I figured being around mom would help me. I’m going to say this first at up most I LOVE my mom. Out of all 5 of my siblings I’m the only one who helps her and has always been here for her always. But y’all honestly I’m feeling like she has stolen my spark out of life and it makes me sad to say this. She is a negative Nancy… She steals every holiday…she goes out moths before the holiday and buys tons of gifts for my son..like it’s a races. Then I have really nothing to get. She almost acts like my son is her son. She tells me what I ” need” to do I’m 48 years old I don’t ” need to be told how to raise my son. I’ve gotten him this far. I’m almost to the point to where I’m about to explode but I continue to tell myself to let it go. She doesn’t mean any harm.. Then I think about moving and start feeling guilty if I leave her by herself. I feel like I need to move for my happiness and my sanity but at the sametime it will disrupt my son’s world and upset my mom even though I know my mom will understand in the long run. It’s more my son I worry about. I feel stuck. And I’m praying daily if not several times daily about it. Letting go is a continuous activity in most people’ s daily life. I’m still learning how to let go from the loss of love to learn how to love again. I don’t even date because I don’t feel ready. For some maybe the let go process just takes a little longer.. even though we pray and work for it..it still takes its sweet time. I feel better just typing this❤️

Someone once told me that the actual meaning of letting go is grooming, is exploring, is eliminating the things that are ruining our lives that are wasting our time . Feelings are worth more than anything else in this world according to me . If you’re not feeling good about something than you should have to trust your intuitions and have to believe in your own self that if you’re not feeling good about something than there’s something not good for sure . You should have to trust on your own self first and to have let go of things. If things are bothering you leave them if people are bothering you leave them too because your inner peace costs more than anything else in this world ✨

We must let go even if it hurts. It might me a loss, betrayal etc. but we have to keep moving on. Some of us might think that it is easier said than done. I know it may sound a little bit awkard but reliving things over and over again it doesn’t get anywhere. We must learn to let go and move on with our lives. Life is an endless lesson. We have to take the good with their bad, with ups and downs. Life doesn’t stop teaching us and we doesn’t stop learning. Life is a miracle. We should feel gratitude for this moment because that is all we have. Past is gone and future is uncertain We must cherish the people we love because in one moment our entire lifes might change in a blink of eye. It’s so scary thinking of losing a beloved one, the pain must be unbearable. All of us we are terrified of losing someone but we have to keep in mind that noone is immortal. We all are going to die one day, we may grieve for the loss, we may feel depressed but we have to readjust that crown and move on. After the storms of life we will be much stronger and wiser than ever before. We will learn who are true friend are!! We may fall, we may cry, we may crawl but we have to take the step. One step by the time.

Very good advice! A daily struggle for me though; I tend to want to live in the past! My life seemed to be more full and full of purpose everything new and just starting out!! After your mom and dad leaves and your husband after 36 yrs it’s difficult to pick back up!

Letting go and opening yourself up to change is so frightening. I was terrified and so sad. I am ending a near 44 years of marriage. We haven’t spoken for over a year. I asked him to leave but had no idea we would never talk again about anything. I have grown so much this past year. I’m a little kinder to those I know and those I don’t. I am reminded we all have a story and to Listen and not judge.
I have learned I like me and though trying to make positive changes. I’m okay with who I am and I will never allow anyone to make feel as though I am not enough. I am enough. I have wonderful friends and family. I was telling the landscaper how grateful I am for my Daughters. He said, you taught them to be who they are today. I came inside and cried tears of joy and gratitude.

Nice inspiring article..❤👑yeah to lead healthy life..we have to become our true friend ,true Soul companion.. we should have the positive energy…to let ourselves survive in any conditions…our any obstacles.. or hurdles..that can shook us away from our authentic selves…and let us be in misery…and pain…to remain in a place where no further life for us..or desires for us..letting go is not easy it takes a lot pain,hard work,courage.. calmness,patience…Will power..to let go…and be a person you wanna be against any odds..I myself faced real challenges in my whole life.. I was brought up v.well..in favourable and positive circle…My father is a role model for me…as he brought me up..like a boy…but let me understand that I should have limitations.. and live a life of purpose and help others facing any problems..I proved a good person…as Mom took care of me a lot….I am just shorten my story..as I have to let you know about the letting go process..in my life.. it mainly started after Moms death…when I was 20 years old girl…mishap of divorce…that really make me struggle more for myself…to care myself…I have to let go a lot..challenging period ..Death of Mom…and pappa and younger brother needs my care..and whole house systems…need my attention a lot….family members come and go …but no one to be with us.. even sisters….so I have to strong enough to deal my routines.. and to deal..all..There comes the flunte behaviour of family members..who want me to forget my self,my life..my priorities my wishes my desires..and be a Mamma all time.. so I at times have to let go of the absurd behaviour they do .cause tension or depress me..cause troublesome conditions so I remain where I am..and not move forward in my life.therefore I thought to indulge myself more in such activities at home..that can ease my soul.. and mind…+body…I do strayed more spiritual links with God at times..Meditations .dance my hobby too.i dance on different music’s…that ease my soul ,body and mind ..read books .write articles.. for myself.. I have to manage time for such things..as I mainly at home…so I managed time for all..I joined ladies club too. so as much time I could manage I can get relief to be in positive activities..in speeches .e.t .c..but one main thing I needed time to be with me…so I continue focusing on my free times in which I can grow to be more positive..confident and strong human being.. and a stŕong Soul…and mind..But as conditions are not always in my favour I have to neglect others behaviours and misdoings..I tried my best to remain cool..and calm.sometimes I to burst up..I have to face panic..and tension . This thing always in my mind I am taking care of whole home systems..Pappa and younger brother needs my help and attentions I used to let go . And remain happy contented and more positive to work more..but not forget to love myself more and make my wishes and dreams come true…one thing I never quit ..when you are strong enough to deal people’s moods .and behaviours..and any conditions favourable or unfavourable..This is when God Almighty help you more..we are here to be more stable.. positive and productive…and to love ourselves…make ourselves . Better and confident.. to ease other Souls in misery..pain or ďistrèss..and all is of course possible by taking life day by day..focusing own your goals…live each day…with hope and happiness..and let go….move forward.. and make this world a real world…where all love and care each other..be a Source of pleasure respect..and live.. ❤👑💐Amen

We are Fearfully and Wonderfully made by God. No matter what we are, who we are, what color, race and beliefs. We are created special. We are one big family in a big round world. We are made by loved, that is why we share also love to other people. The way people treat us depends on how we treat ourselves. Accept everything about us and people will accept who we are. It is a matter of acceptance, for we cannot give what we don’t have.

God Bless us,.

In this world we are so opinionated & doesn’t matter what we do in this life we can never please everyone, the least thing we can do is the best for ourselves & for those who are disadvantaged. The more we give, the more people think we are soft & can take just about any ones crap but when you have kids you sacrifice so much not much left of us just as long as we can live comfortably, enjoy what’s left of life & love God. Enough is enough & if something doesn’t want to let go of you or it becomes a problem then you need to do what it takes to rid of it once for all. We can only do so much & the way this world is going there won’t be anyone out there to recognise your efforts because I can see it, feel it, I have the ability to see beyond the normal. Some people hate me but I don’t care, I even get the rare abusive comment particularly from women who would just want to destroy me because I stand up for myself, been through a lot. And I say this, don’t let anything or anyone stand in your way just be you, be happy, kind, considerate & do what you think is best feel free, relaxed & don’t worry about who likes or doesn’t like it, that’s their problem not yours. I like to inspire, amaze, empower & enlighten people so they are happy with themselves, it gives me a sense of feel good. We should all be building up one another not tearing each other apart.

A very helpful reminder for people who tend to forget the little things that matter everyday because we get so embroiled in our daily grind of earning a living, taking care of people that matter in our lives & other mundane things we tend to forget ourselves.

For me Letting GO meant true freedom to live for GOD as I always planned to. Therefore I had to speak myself into my peace and freedom.,it was what worked for me. I began praying direct prayers to GOD. For instance , I was being severely cheated on and I wanted better for myself. And I would talk to GOD almost just as I would a friend on the telephone. And I asked HIM to take the feelings away for this person and never let me shed another tear because of this person. I cried for about 30 minutes and the Holy Spirit lifted it off of me and I never cried for him or wanted him again. This sounds goofy and even corny . But my heart was sincere and I told GOD THAT I WANTED TO TOTALLY Surrender and LIVE for HIM. And I was so free that I really can’t explain the weight that had lifted off of me. And several months later I realized that I was being stalked . At this time my feelings were over. Deliverance for me had occurred. With the help of GOD , I was able to let go of a toxic and narcissistic person. I didn’t want revenge or my things back, I only wanted peace and my life.

I needed this message thank you😊
I plan on going back to it daily to reflect on it.
Reading your story was like reading my own. In my case though even though I talk to god like you did every day. I wasn’t raised going to church. My dad died when I was 14 he was my world. He left my mom and 7 kids behind at 44 he died a heart attack. Me being the oldest and Tom boy I took over. I hated god for doing this to my family. That was moons ago now I’m married to a narcissist for 21 yrs. I’m in bad health trying to know god. Asking him to give me the courage to leave. Please pray for me .

Is not easy to let things go or forget something you can’t forget even you tried harder and use all methode or knowledge you possibly know! But still feeling like at same place!
The last thing i Can do Only is be positive and pray..if it’s also doesn’t work..and it’s time to call I’m Done.

After 54 years of trying to please everyone, I finally learned to truly let go. This was not an easy feat, and I still need daily personal reminders, but I know I do have the power to do it if I can stay mindful. I surrendered to the fact that I needed help with this about 2-1/2 years ago. I then completed a 1-year DBT Therapy Group which virtually changed my life. I highly recommend this to anyone who suffers from letting go or other similar diagnosis’. It saved my life!

Todsy my son and his 12 yr old reached out to me and i am not able to help and feel very guilty about this and leaving them see there is no other family for them i was it all my family is gone. How do i over come this?

Cynthia: We can’t centre our lives on problematic issues with family, we can offer advice, and be supportative even if it is over the phone. I’m glad you found someone to make you happy. You can also write a positive letter to your son and grandson. Don’t deny yourself the happiness you deserve.

Yes I totally agree on all these ideas, however it’s very hard to let GO when a loved one enters the kingdom in heaven to be with our heavenly father and wasn’t around to comfort them or say to them “see ya later”. The reason why I say “see ya later” rather than “goodbye” is because I plan on coming back. You don’t actually know if that will be the last time you see or speak to each other. Make every moment HAPPY, positive attitude. I found out in my LIFE lessons it pays to be yourself. Energetic, out going, caring, looking out for everyone enemies or not. The reward is much more when we tell the TRUTH.

I agree with you. My brother had passed away 3 days ago. Yestersay we cremated him. It is really hard to let him go, but it is the best from God for him. After a month he was hospitalised trying to concurred his cancer, finally he passed away. It was a painful experience for us, but I am glad he is rest in peace now. I was not saying good bye to him. I said, I see you later at God’s House in Heaven. Wait for me, until my turn has come

Letting go does not mean you are not on it.
And it all depends on the subject at hand.
Me personally l see the big picture; and l know when to do and when to let life do the rest.
And the mind is a child so keep it entertained
Music
Books
Art
Movies
Out door activity
Meditation
Any thing but let it flow.
And giving the things the importantce they have.
Quite simple really.
Don’t get into mind games
Keep the mind healthy

Mind games……this is the Powerful Weapon of the female Bully.
The more chances They get ….the worse they treat you.
In January 2018…I HAD ENOUGH…so I blocked this friend from my cell phone and changed my Landline # …having had it since 1989.
Confrontation was NOT going to change her behaviour.
I just have to let her go…no more hurt for me.

I love everything about this article! We sometimes forget how easy it is to let go and let God. Everyone should read these ten easy steps every morning before starting their day. I just did and I will say that a whole LOT of anxiety from the past few days died down quite a bit. I will write these down and put them up so that others may easily follow and profit from them. God bless you and your family. <3

Stay in touch with the inner child that we all are, by accepting who you are, accept the things you cannot change, the courage to change the things you can, and the wisdom to know the difference. Be kind and loving to others for inside they may be hurting and always look for their inner beauty for life’s battles don’t always go to the stronger or faster person but sooner or later the one that wins is the one who thinks they can. Keeping a positive attitude is what I strive for, it fuels me with energy, for a healthy sense of self-love is contagious it spreads to others and co-exists with humility. And never forget that the Redeemer wants us to know that we are as important as anyone else.
