Letting go is one of the most important, yet most difficult spiritual principles that we need to incorporate into our lives. Too often we brace ourselves for change instead of letting go and embracing change as an opportunity for our personal transformation. When we resist change, we actually generate more energy around our deepest insecurities, drawing toward us what we fear most.
Letting go takes an open heart, expanded awareness, a grand sense of humor and a conscious practice to move through fear. It also requires surrounding ourselves with loving people and environments that support us releasing what is necessary in a healthy and positive way. Most of all, it requires trust in ourselves and our connection to source for it to become an essential element in our lives such as the air we breathe.
We have to let go of fear into trust. Letting go and trust go hand in hand as one supports the other. It’s easy to move on when we have the road map right in front of us; yet, many of us struggle to let go of a relationship, a job or our life as we’ve known it when we have to trust ourselves. Absolute trust in ourselves is our safety net, however, this safety net isn’t a white fluffy pillow that we can fall back on in familiar comfort. Rather it is a deep sense of connection to a higher power whatever source that happens to be for us and then accessing this flow of energy through our heart.
Let go of your negative thoughts, fears and expectations moment to moment which will bring you into a state of expanded awareness. It takes more than deep breaths to let go; it requires a strength of trust and courage of the heart. Ultimately, you must trust that letting go is about the completion of life cycles and thus, signals a beginning more than an end. Remind yourself that you have a choice in every moment to let go into trust.
