How to Let
Go and Let God
By Barbara Mark and Trudy Griswold
“Hi! I have a quote to share. I'm new in angel writing so I'm not sure if my Angel gave it to me or if I read it somewhere with his guidance, but I'll share it anyway in case you haven't seen it. I love it and keep it in mind constantly. "Let go and Let God" :)

Dear Blanca, You are right, it is a wonderful quote. Thank you for reminding us of it. Letting Go, Letting it Happen, Allow, Let Go and Let God, are all ways of saying the same thing—to remove your ego from the situation and let wiser beings take care of it. This is a very difficult thing for human beings to do because we have been taught since infancy to take charge of our lives, to make decisions, and then to take action. “The early bird gets the worm,” is a popular aphorism. The Biblical quote “The Lord helps those who help themselves” is often used as an excuse to keep in control of one’s life.
What does it mean, then, to “Let Go,” when we have been taught to “take action”? When do we act and when do we stand back? When is it appropriate to work hard? How do we put our egos in our pockets and let God and the angels help us or take charge? We asked them all these questions. Here is their reply.
The Angels Speake:
It is first important to remember that you are part of a bigger plan that you cannot see. You have been created to do certain work, to learn certain lessons and to be with certain people, as has every other soul on earth. When your human “brain” becomes involved in the process, confusion can arise because your brain does not remember in the same way your soul remembers. Your brain runs your body and stores some memories, but your soul stores the reasons for your life. When you ask questions of us concerning your life work or your path or reason for living, do not trust your brain’s answers. It doesn’t know.
So how do you access the information to find out the meaning for your life? More often you can’t, because it involves so many others and is multi-faceted. That is one of the major reasons you have angels and other divine beings to keep you on track. We see a bigger picture with a greater meaning. We are the storehouse of that type of information. Your brain only knows what is in it. We know what is in many people’s brains and what their purposes are. We work to bring people and circumstances together at the right time and in the right place to connect for the greatest good.
When you Let Go, you are merely announcing to yourself that you do not need to know everything. You are saying that you have done all you can do, and now you trust us to take your request or need to a conclusion. Think of us as a heavenly mailbox. You have deposited your “mail” or prayer or request in the box, and faithfully believe that it is going to the right destination. You Allow your request time to get there, as you would trust the postal service to take your letter across country.
What do you do in the meantime? A lot of you resort to worry. We say, let us handle it. You only need to do the tasks you need to do today. Let your angels do the rest. Let us handle it.
Faith Builder: Give one of your worries to your angels today. Then let them take care of it.
