Ahhh...what a relief to let go of our burdens.  But can we?  There is so much that we have to get done!  God has no hands but ours so we have to stay busy, because there's just so much to do!  Does that sound like you?  It sure sounds like me sometimes.  Slow down!!!  Slow down, relax, take a deep breath and let go and let GOD.

Letting go and letting God doesn't mean not doing anything to help projects along.  It means to let go of the worry, the hurry, the impatience and stress of it all.  It means let go of the results and just know that everything will turn out okay if you do your best.

Ahhh...there's the catch.  Your BEST.  Do you think something's not worth doing if it can't be done perfect? you think you're judged for not doing your best if what you accomplish is not totally without error or flaw?  Who's putting those expectations on you?  I do not think it is God.

God is Love.
"He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love." (I John 4:8)
God is Love.
"Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails." (1 Corinthians 13:4–8)
God is Love.  Love does not judge.  God is not judging you, stop judging yourself and slow down!  You don't have to do everything "perfect," for you are already perfect in the eyes of Love.

God is Love.  God will take care of your needs.

"Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?" (Matthew 6:26)
Let go and let God take care of those that you love.  Let go of your worries and release your loved ones into the all-loving and all-powerful arms of the Universe.  Release them into the arms of their Highest Good.

Letting go and letting God does not mean you don't care.  It is a higher expression of love.

Holding onto worries and fears is to pray in reverse, so to speak.  It is to put more faith in Murphy's Law than in God.

Yes,  do your best.  But doing your best means not bringing undue stress upon yourself. Doing your best means not only doing the best in what you are trying to do, but it also means doing your best to take care of yourself.  Look at it this way, if you don't take good care of you now, then who will do all that work when you're gone?!?! 

Letting go and letting God means not TRYING so hard, but LETTING the all-mighty power of wisdom, love, creativity and inspiration take over your job!

Letting go and letting God doesn't mean that your tasks won't get done, it means the exact opposite of that in the long run, because when you let God take over a project, believe me, it certainly does get done, and it gets done much better without you and your ego slowing the whole process down!

Ego?  Yes I said ego!  It takes a pretty big head to think we have to do it all without slowing down and giving God a chance to step in!

Letting go and letting God means letting go of the worries and taking time out to relax.  Too much stress leads to headaches, and headaches lead to not doing as good of a job, so really, take time off now and enjoy the relaxation, or lose time in productivity from mistakes made and time lost.

Letting go and letting God means when things don't go the way that you want them to go, taking a dee0 breath and realizing that good things sometimes need us to open our mind in order for new ideas to come into play.  Perhaps there are new ways that are better than the ways we were doing before.  It means trusting that God (good) is at work.  (God is not only Love, God is Good!)

Letting go and letting God means being willing to let what's best for everyone be the guiding force in all the decisions we make. 

Letting go and letting God means giving in to the good...declaring the good...enjoying the good in our life!  It means letting go of complaints, excuses, gossip, negativity and a defeatist attitude, because now we're not in charge, God is, and those things are what is congruent with that. 

Letting go and letting God means surrendering our will to the will of God, and that isn't so bad, because God's will for us is always GOOD.

" Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom."  (Luke 12:32)
So if there is nothing to fear, then why all the hurry and rush?  Are we afraid if we don't produce enough income that we'll go hungry?  Slow down and make your work count?  Are we afraid that we will displease someone or be judged for not accomplishing what they think is enough?  It only matters what God thinks, so let God be in charge of all that!  Are we afraid that if we slow down we will stop, and not be able to get started again?  That won't happen.  Not if we're letting go and letting GOD, and not just letting go and not leaving it in the care of goodness, wisdom and love.  That's all I'm trying to say!

Letting go and letting God means letting the strength inside of you take care of your problems.  Actually it does mean doing your best, because when you are rested and clear-minded, focused on solutions rather than problems, that's when good can occur...God...God is good...Let GOOD take over your life! 

What does this have to do with staying healthy, which is the focus at Essentials of Life Holistic Enrichment Center and  Plenty!  Let go and let God be in charge of your health, for one thing!  Let God take care of your health by using God's Gifts of Healing in your day to day life and not ignoring the presence of God (good!) in your life, ever-present and available to you!  Let go of your old ways that don't work and let goodness take over your life!  God gave us many gifts we can use to stay well.  Let go and let God do God's work!

Also, the stress of not letting go.  Hurrying, rushing, pushing yourself harder and harder.  It's just about enough to make your head pop right off your shoulders sometimes!  That CAN'T be halthy, I'm sure!  Stress is one of the biggest killers in today's world.  The colon backs up, and then everything in the whole body is negatively affected from there.  Plus stress hormones are released in the body, as if there is a tiger running after it or something from teh signals we send to our brain with all the urgency we place on whatever it is that is stressing us out..I don't know...getting a paper written on time, for instance.  It may be important, but it's not a tiger, you know, and so what is the body supposed to do with all of those chemicals released to help us run fast or wrestle him down? 

Well, what happens to all of those chemicals we stir up in our body when placing ourselves under undue stressz in that way is that they practically eat us alive as the tiger would have done had he been real!  We create real tigers in our minds, and we lose!  Instead, just sing him a lullaby and take a snooze.  We need to relax a lot more than we do, or we're going to burn our bodies up by getting our pH out of whack, and then we waste nutrients to buffer the effects of that.  Igt's a circle that will eventually end in our death.  Why hurry the process along?  Let go and let God and live long!  (god is LIFE!)

Take mental breaks throughout the day.  Take time to honor your body's needs.  Take time to honor the needs of your body and mind to relax.  Take a nap, meditate, go for a nature walk.  Take time for hobbies.  Take time for friends.  Take time for a nice long bath in hot water and soothing essential oils.  Take time to smell the roses along the way and always take time to give thanks.

Let go and let God.  It's nice!  It's a much more sane and healthy way of living life. 

I wrote a poem once...just a silly little rhyme, really.  There's a story behind it, but that doesn't matter right now.  Here it is.  Let it get stuck in your head when you think you've gone totally MAD!  (How many of you get the pun?  Hahaha!)

"What me worry?

There's nothing to fear!

What me hurry? 

We're already here!"

It's Labor Day weekend this weekend.  Don't you think you've worked hard enough?  Celebrate and let God do the work for awhile!  Everything that needs to get done will get done much better that way, and best of all, your head won't pop off your shoulders and you might find out that you enjoy taking a break from the worry.  It really doesn't do very much good!

Have a relaxing holiday weekend!
