SAY THIS AFFIRMATION OUT LOUD 3X TO MANIFEST THE ENERGY

Affirmation: I release the desire to control outcomes, and instead allow the Universe do its magic.

It’s only natural to want to control a situation. It’s the very most basic of desires – to have things work out favorably for you. But when we have no control over the outcome, trying to control the situation can only harm us. If it’s a highly emotional situation, this is especially true.

King of Cups - Bianco Nero Tarot

This affirmation was prompted by the King of Cups which appeared in our July 2020 Tarot Reading under the question: “What do I need to let go of?”

This need for control comes from our ego. When our ego has power over our emotions and urges us to desire this control, we become anxious and stressed out. This might even manifest in our bodies as physical pain or ailments.

The ego is really not a bad thing! It’s a part of our spiritual selves. It helps us to stay on track and keep it real. But sometimes the ego creeps in and brings up feelings of fear. And that’s what we’re talking about here – the fear that the outcome you want is not what will happen.

Where there is fear, there can be no trust.

When our ego tries to control an uncontrollable situation, it means we have an absence of trust in the Universe. Remember, the Universe fully supports and loves you. It will always provide you with what you need, even if it’s not what you want, or think you need.

So the next time you feel that ego creeping up on you with this need for control, tell it to chill out. Then sit back, take a deep breath, and repeat the affirmation: I release the desire to control outcomes, and instead allow the Universe do its magic.
