You’ve probably noticed that rich people seem to get richer while others can get things without much effort. The wealthy are always increasing their wealth, and some people appear able to manifest anything they want with little work. It makes you think that money and success come easily for some.
Nobody is born with good luck or destined to be super rich or the healthiest. But there is a secret not everyone knows. It’s called “Wu Wei,” an old Taoist idea that teaches how to go with the flow, not force things, and get everything. I think of “Wu Wei” as a skill or an art because you can get better at it over time.
Wu Wei And The Law of Attraction
To understand Wu Wei and how it relates to the Law of Attraction, you first need to know what it means. Wu Wei is a Taoist concept that means “non-interference” or “non-action.” It suggests that you go with the flow instead of forcing outcomes.
When you practice Wu Wei, you release attachment to results and trust that things will unfold as they should. This allows your desires to manifest naturally without your constant fretting and micromanaging. By letting go, you reduce resistance and make room for what you want to flow in.
You have to:
- Accept what comes your way instead of rigidly trying to control outcomes. Go with the flow.
- Stop forcing things to happen on your timeline. Have patience and trust the process.
- Release expectations about how your desires will materialize. The universe may have an even better plan than you could imagine.
- Take inspired action when motivation strikes, then rest and renew yourself after. Don’t take action just for action’s sake.
- Find inner peace and contentment now instead of making it conditional on achieving your goals. Your state of being matters most.
When you master Wu Wei, you access a source of power greater than your ego desires. Things fall into place all on their own with ease and grace. This is the art of allowing your intentions to blossom into reality by getting out of your own way.
Of course, if you are not focused on attracting money, love, or success, then you probably won’t get it. That’s where going with the flow comes in, like in Wu Wei. You have to set your intention to make the Law of Attraction work for you.
Allowing Instead of Forcing
To practice Wu Wei, you have to let go of forcing outcomes and instead allow things to unfold naturally. This means not chasing after desires or trying to manipulate situations to get what you want. Rather, relax into the flow of life and trust that what’s meant to be will be.
Going with the flow requires patience and faith. You release expectations about how things “should” happen and accept what comes your way. This doesn’t mean giving up on your dreams but instead having an openness to how they may manifest.
Here are my suggestions:
- Observe situations without judgment. Notice details with curiosity instead of labeling things as “good” or “bad.” This helps you respond flexibly to life’s ups and downs.
- Do less and be more. Instead of doing it all, focus on one thing and slow down. Take deep breaths to help quiet your mind and release anxieties about the future.
- Accept uncertainty. Learn to feel comfortable not knowing how things will turn out. Have confidence in your ability to handle whatever comes next.
- Trust the timing of your life. Believe that what’s meant to be will be, even if it’s not on your schedule. Look for signs you’re headed in the right direction, even if progress feels slow.
With time and practice, Wu Wei becomes second nature. You realize that by allowing instead of forcing, you achieve an effortless flow with life and open yourself to receiving more of your heart’s desires.
Applying Wu Wei To Manifest Your Goals And Desires
To apply the principle of Wu Wei to manifest your goals and desires, you must first get clear on what you want and be as specific as possible. If it’s money, do you know exactly how much we’re talking? And if it’s finding a partner, do you have a really vivid picture in your head of what they look like and their personality and the stuff they’re into?
Once you have that picture down in perfect detail, you have to let go of any attachment to how it’s actually going to go down. Trust that the Universe has your back and will take care of lining things up. Don’t stress yourself out trying to control everything. Focus on your goal and have faith that things will work out like they’re supposed to.
Define Your Vision
What are your goals, dreams, and desires? Get specific about what you want to create or achieve. Write them down, draw images, and create a vision board. The more clarity you have, the more the Universe can help you.
Release And Trust
Let go of how it will unfold. The “how” is not your job – your role is to hold the vision. Release control and trust that the Universe will orchestrate events to help you. This may mean unexpected opportunities arise or chance encounters with the right people. Look for signs you’re on the right path, such as angel numbers (1111, 1212, 222, 444, 777, etc.) or repeatedly seeing a specific word, shape, or animal.
Go With The Flow
Practice flexibility and non-resistance. Don’t force outcomes or cling to rigid expectations. When obstacles arise, look for alternative paths instead of fighting the current. Stay open to new possibilities and go where the flow of energy and inspiration takes you. Sometimes, the path to your desire is not a straight line.
While allowing the Universe to guide you, continue taking practical steps toward your vision. The inspired actions you take, no matter how small, create momentum to attract what you want. Don’t skip any step, no matter how insignificant it seems. Every act leads you closer to your desire.
When you practice Wu Wei and let life happen naturally instead of stressing over the small details, it actually helps you get more of what you want. Stop sweating all the little things and trust that it’ll all work out how it’s supposed to. Your job is to figure out what you’re after, take some steps to help make it happen, and then just let go of worrying about the end result.
It’s funny, but not forcing things is actually the easiest way to go about it. If you relax and don’t freak out so much about outcomes, you give the universe more room to bring you what you want. Loosen your grip on control, quiet your mind, and enjoy the journey. Whether you realize it or not, your dream life is unfolding as we speak.
