We all know that there are relationships, jobs and situations in our lives that we would be better served if we just let them go. The identities, stories and attachments we’ve created around them may seem impossible to shed. No matter how hard we try, it seems like a constant battle that goes on in our minds. Do we stay or do we go—do we let go of what no longer serves us? Often, when we feel like we are losing the battle, we hang on even tighter.
We are often plagued by a fear of missing out. If we let go and move on, what happens if a better situation unfolds without us? Instead focus on the better future waiting for you. What if that better future cannot unfold if you are still clinging to the past?
We are so often afraid of the future and the uncertainty of what it brings that we are content to settle for the misery of what is.
As a child, I was terrified of the night. Someone once told me that there is nothing in the darkness except what I put there—there is nothing there except the fears I’ve created and projected into the darkness. In the same way, often the fear and uncertainty we feel about the future is only what our minds have created.
We live in a loving and supportive Universe and everything is unfolding for our highest and greatest good. If we learn to trust in the Universe, many of our fears begin to melt away.
But how do we let go and move on? Are there instances in your life where you did let go and it worked out for you—was it a relationship, job, place, or a thing that you needed to let go of and now you are a better person for it?
Start small. Start letting go of the little things now so you can build the muscle to start letting go of the bigger things later. I love the Feng Shui practice of letting go of twenty-seven items for nine days. For nine days in a row, get rid of (throw away, recycle, or give away) twenty-seven things that no longer represent you or align with your future goals. It energetically clears the space to allow new things to enter your life.
When the glass is full of water, it is not able to receive more. Empty the glass so you can receive the abundance that awaits you.
