If You Feel Like Giving Up, Please Do
When we’ve been working on a particular desire for a while, especially if we’ve been working hard instead of working aligned, it’s not unusual to find ourselves exhausted and discouraged.
That’s when the idea of giving up might start to appeal.
Many of us have been socially trained to overcome that impulse, and to carry on no matter what.
But the truth is when it feels like relief to give up the battle, it’s not a defeat.
Guidance from your inner being that knows a better way to get there than the path you’ve been taking.
It doesn’t mean your dream isn’t going to happen. It just means the way you’ve been going about it can be improved on.
And it starts with giving yourself a break. With taking a respite from the struggle to make it happen.
When we deny that inspired call, we delay the manifestation.
So the next time you feel like giving up on something, maybe do that. Don’t consider it a failing, consider it a success that you realized where the relief was and you gave it to yourself.
Because relief equals alignment.
After you’ve had a break, you’ll get another instruction from guidance that you can follow when it’s time. But don’t be surprised if you find your dream made good progress while you were having a nap.
That’s what happened to Abigail Steidley after she worked herself into a state of exhaustion, and literally couldn’t do anything but lay down for five days. Much of what she’d been working so hard for happened after she gave up and did nothing.
It’s the whole premise behind slacker manifesting (coined by Abigail).
To further my point, this post is categorized under “Manifesting Techniques,” because releasing struggle is a powerful manifesting prompt!
So if it feels like relief to throw in the towel and give up feelings of frustration, overwhelm, etc., that’s likely exactly what your dream needs you to do next.
When giving up feels better, it is not a failure. It is an instruction from your higher self pointing the way to your success.
