You Can’t Force a Flower to Bloom: Mastering the Art of Letting Go

In order to step into your greatness and fulfill your purpose, you have to go through a period of intense growth. Once you set the intention that your dreams are your priority, the universe will do everything in it’s power to make that happen for you. When you are so deeply connected to your purpose, you want others to feel the same feeling of joy.

But, what do you do when you want someone so badly to be a part of your life, but their resistance to change is stopping them from keeping up with your frequency?

There is an answer. It’s not the one you want to hear, I can guarantee you that.

Let them go. Maybe just for now, maybe for good.

You can’t force someone to grow faster than they’re ready to and you can’t slow your growth just so they can keep up.

Trust me, I learned this the hard way. You see potential in everyone and help them discover their purpose, not because you meant to, but because you radiate your purpose and people are drawn to it. Even though they hear their purpose calling them, they are so resistant to change that they ignore it.

Change scares most people. What they don’t realize is that you literally have to walk away from 90% of everything familiar before you can take the next step. You go through a rollercoaster of emotions. It kind of sucks. Actually, it really sucks when you’re going through it. But after, the feeling is euphoric. It feels like 10,000 lbs have been lifted from your shoulders. But it takes time to reach that level of freedom.

When you find people who are unable to match the frequency you emit, it’s frustrating. It can be a friend, a partner, anyone. But, when you’re moving in one direction and they’re either staying the same or going another, you have to let them go.

When you came into their life, they weren’t expecting to change. In their mind, they weren’t mentally prepared. But, your presence awakened them. They see all of the amazing things you’re doing and how you feel and they want to do the same.

However, this transformation seems like a piece of cake from the outside…until you start going through the motions. When you change yourself, everything else shifts: the people you hang out with, what you want, what you do, etc. I “lost” 90% of my friends and ventured into the unknown. It took me almost a year to fully go through this transformation. It was a year of confusion, frustration and doubt, but I got through it. You have to have faith and persevere.

Until someone is so frustrated and fed up with their life, their job, their career, their relationships, they will remain tight in a bud. The yearning for a more grandiose life must come from within. They must awaken themselves first, or else the change will be ineffective. If they change for anyone else other than themselves, it will only work for a short period of time, but they will eventually revert back to how they were before.

In the end, the only thing you can do is focus on yourself and where you’re going. If someone can’t keep up with you, keep going. You can’t force a flower to bloom, but you can do everything in your power to become to most beautiful, adorned flower in the garden.

    I absolutely love this! Especially “The yearning for a more grandiose life must come from within.” I have been yearning for that grandiose life I know is awaiting me, but fear of failure keeps whispering in my ear, but today I’m done with it! Watch out world cause here I come! 😉 Lauren, Thank You for this
