Letting go is a topic in everybody’s life at times. Yesterday I was talking to a friend and I realized that during the past weeks, more and more friends are posting about letting go or about their process of letting go. There are so many different reasons or stories behind it. May it be about love, about plans we made, about disappointments, or being hurt. But in the end, we can mostly sum it up to two points:
- A shattered dream.
- A traumatic or painful experience in the past.
It mostly has always to do with other people involved. That means there are at least two individual energies, ideas, imaginations, histories, goals, and intentions at work. The problem of letting go is always the “Why”. Why me? Why did he/she pick me for doing that? Why did I need to have this accident? Why did she/he turn away? Why do I have to get this disease? If we only had an explanation, it would help so much. When it is about a person we could get an answer but for whatever reason, some don’t do us the favor. However, we cannot do anything about it … let it go.
We are letting go of so many things without even noticing them. But the more something means to us the harder it gets. It can take weeks, months, years, or even a lifetime. But when the time has come, we feel it clearly. That is the time when we have to take this subject carefully, thank it for what it gave us, for the joy it brought for a while, for the lesson it taught us, or for making us develop something we would have never developed without it. Take it carefully and lay it at rest at a certain place in your thoughts or in real life. Imagine it as a flower that withers, sinks into the earth, and gives its energy back in order to open up the possibilities for the growth of a new plant. Or let it fly like a bird and free its energy and yourself. But whatever you do, do it with love. Only when you let go of all your resentments and frustrations you will find peace.
It often helps when we have something visible to let go like a symbol since we cannot see feelings. And it also helps to not do it alone. Therefore, I invite everyone who feels ready and who is tired of being stuck in a place they don’t want to be: Do a post with the title My Symbol Of Letting Go and choose a symbol like a picture, a quote, a song,… whatever. Nobody needs to know any details. Choose a friendly symbol and do this post with the intention to let go in peace!
I thank you from my heart for what you gave to me. I will cherish it forever. Fly free!
In Love and Light!
