The Most Ingenious Plan
This morning as I wrote in my Gratitude Journal about the volume of Manifesting Generators I've been meeting, I contemplated setting up an online community portal and scheduling weekly group video conferencing calls to invite all Manifesting Generators to meet, bond and share their journey together.
But I quickly realised this contemplation was a mistake as my mind took the opportunity to start figuring out how to make that happen and details for the solution. Recognising the hole I was about to fall into I promptly closed my journal and surrendered all further contemplation.
Without a doubt, the most ingenious plan I could ever hope to devise would be to trade my plans for God’s.

This past week has shown me that I don't need to go looking for answers, the answers will find me when I'm ready to receive them and not a moment before.
Let Go of Control
A couple of nights ago I watched 50 Shades of Grey for the first time and I felt I understood what the lead character Christian Grey meant by 'letting go of all control sets you free'. I feel it's because so much of my time and effort in the past had been spent trying to plan and predict things that I couldn't possibly plan or predict!
The more I tried to plan my business ideas and predict what strategies were going to work, the more stress and anxiety I unnecessarily placed on myself and I didn't even get close to achieving my goal of working for myself.
The moment I surrended my business aspirations to Source and let myself be fully guided by my impulses, I felt more than just free... my LIFE felt MAGICAL!
Why? Because I never know what's coming round the next corner. Every day contains a host of surprises. I found that the feeling of unknowing anticipation is far more seductive than the desire to be in control of it.
And yes... I just quoted a fictitious novel and probably got the quote wrong too!
For real depth on this topic I recommend reading:
