My word for 2021: allow

My word for 2021: "allow"

For the past 3-4 years there has been a “thing” where people decide what their word for the year will be. It’s a way to be deliberate and mindful for the coming year, so long as you keep that word in mind as your theme. I don’t know who started the idea, but perhaps you too, have a word for each year.

When choosing my word for each year, I spend a lot of time contemplating it. And sometimes I even end up revising it. But for my 2021 word I decided to select “allow”.

My word(s) last year was “level up”. And I did! I leveled up in so many ways. My spiritual growth definitely got to the next level, which was my intention. I was pleasantly surprised that other areas of my life also leveled up.

About the time October rolled around however, I was becoming frustrated. I had been trying so hard to make things work in various areas of my life, and they just weren’t coming together the way I had envisioned. But then I had an “aha moment”.

I was trying too hard.

Detaching from the “how”

When you’re manifesting you need to remember to let go. Once you put your intentions out there, it’s time to just sit back and let the Universe do its work.

Detaching and allowing the Universe to do its thing means:

  • You will get exactly what you need, which is always going to be better than what you originally had your sights on.
  • You’ll have the freedom of being able to relax. No responsibility on your part to figure out how to make it happen. That is the Universe’s job!
  • You will have the added bonus of seeing the other possibilities that are out there. Things you may overlook if you’re too busy focusing on how you’re going to get to your end goal.

You can’t fight the system anyway

When you try to control outcomes, you’re only harming yourself because you can’t control them. No matter what, things will always end up as they are supposed to. As part of the Divine Plan, if you will.

That’s why allowing is going to be your best bet. No need to fight the inevitable. No need to take on the responsibility of making things happen. Trusting the Universe to do its thing is going to get you where you need to go on the quickest and most direct path.
