My friend, Cindi, shared a story about test driving a Tesla with a group we are in that studies the teachings of Abraham and Law of Attraction. I had never heard of a Tesla, but apparently it goes from 0-60 in about 3 seconds which was pretty amazing for her. She also shared that it has autopilot. So, as she's test driving in Kansas City traffic, they tell her to push a button and take her hands off the wheel. Of course, she's scared at first, so as she lets go of the wheel, her hands hover over the wheel. Very quickly though, the car gives indication that it knows what it is doing, that it is in charge. Before long she was sitting with her hands in her lap, feet off the pedals and the car was doing all the work.
This is a fantastic metaphor for letting go and turning things over to the universe or your God, whatever you call it. To take your hands off the wheel is scary. Letting go of trying to control it all feels scary when you first try it. We fear that if we release or controlling grip, we could crash and burn.
The coolest part, I think, is that through my own experience and watching my clients over the last 10 years, that the universe is just like a Tesla. When you let go, you will begin to get signs very quickly that the universe has it covered. You are taken care of. What a powerful metaphor! For the past week, any time I have felt myself getting bunched up about something, I remind myself to take my hands off the wheel.
For me, money is an area I can sometimes get into that white knuckle gripping. I've talked about this before, but when our hands are clenched on our money, there is no room for money to come flowing in. Taking your hands off the wheel, opening your hand and turning it over to your God, to the universe, whatever you want to call it - your trees, anything. If you let go, trust and know, things will work for you. Take your hands of the wheel, and remind yourself, "things are always working out for me."
