How To Let Go?

hackspirit.com

Every other week, I am publishing an audio meditation on my website erikakind.com. Usually, I am doing group meditations in person, but due to the Corona situation, I switch to the audio option. However, the topic of this week is bringing clarity, balance, and steadfastness into life. To achieve that, we need to let go of illusions or self-imposed pressure due to the requirements we set ourselves.

It made me think of a post, “My Symbol of Letting Go”, I wrote 6 years ago (gosh, how time flies). Letting go is easy to say, but the more we care about something, the harder the process becomes. And often, even though we thought we had let go, life sends something to remind us that some roots are still there. I’d like to give you some tools that may make it a little easier to consciously detach in love. For anger, resentment, rage, despair, self-abandonment, feelings of guilt hold us in their grip and are bound to their destructive effect. Only when we create the necessary loving conditions can we let go. We will not forget, but we will apply the experience in a constructive and even grateful way.

It often helps to use a symbol to visualize the item you want to let go of. Use a photo, make a drawing, write a poem or letter, choose an appropriate object, write a word on a piece of paper. You can also light a candle while doing this, burn incense, vaporize essential oils in a fragrance lamp, or whatever supports the process for you. The important thing is to focus on the issue, go into it, look at it, see what it has done to you, and then think of what good it has given you (there is something good!). When you are ready, let it fly. You can publish a post without mentioning any details, you can burn the paper or bury it (e.g. next to a tree and make it a gift), you can visualize sending it away with the wind or tell a bird to take it along. Find a way that suits you. In my case, I wrote a song, and by publishing it along with my post, I sent what I carried inside out. However you do it, do it knowing that what you let go of will be transformed into positive and nurturing energy. By letting go, you are not only liberating yourself, but releasing energy that will be used divinely.

In letting something go genuinely from a loving heart,
you transform strong negative power into strong positive power. 
That way, you give meaning to a difficult experience.
In letting go, you render a service to yourself and the universe.

In Love and Light

That is definitely one of the most profound examples. And you are so right. As long as we hold that cord we cannot make a single step forward. I love how you put this in one sentence. Would you allow me to quote you?
