Your universal fear of losing control is held in place by false ideas that are holding you hostage and that you need to let go of in order to manifest your dreams. The need for control stems from feeling unsafe, believing that when you can control everything and everybody in your life that you are safe.
Here your ego is in charge of your mind and life, and its job is to keep things familiar for you to feel safe in your comfort zone, even though it’s miserable. When you want to venture beyond your comfort zone, fear of the unknown kicks in and this feeling of uncertainty pulls you back into your comfort zone.
However, this is the bridge you need to cross. To change is uncomfortable. To let go is to embrace the unknown and uncertainty, and trust in the Universe that you will be guided towards a future that you love.
The fear of letting go is part of a trio of universal fears as described by Gregg Braden in his book, The Divine Matrix. The three universal fears – the fear of separation, the fear of not good enough, and the fear of losing control – work together to form your self-image that drives everything in your life.
We have been conditioned to think that we are separate from the Universe, God, Source, or what you call this Infinite Intelligence, and from each other. We have been conditioned to believe that we are not good enough, hence the fear of rejection, of not belonging.
