Letting Go!

“Forgive the past. It is over. Learn from it and let go. People are constantly changing and growing. Do not cling to a limited, disconnected, negative image of a person in the past. See that person now. Your relationship is always alive and changing.” ~Brian Weiss

"Letting Go

"How much do we need to let go of?" a friend asked one day. "I'm not certain," O replied, "but maybe everything." 

Letting go is a spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical process, a sometimes mysterious metaphysical process releasing to God and the Universe that which we are clinging to so tightly.

We let go of our grasp on people, outcomes, ideas, feelings, wants, needs, desires-everything. We let go of trying to control our progress in recovery. Yes, it's important to acknowledge and accept what we want and what we want to happen. But it's equally important to follow through by letting go. 

Letting go is the action part of faith. It is a behavior that gives God and the Universe permission to send us what we're meant to have.

Letting go means we acknowledge that hanging on so tightly isn't helping to solve the problem, change the person, or get the outcome we desire. It isn't helping us. In fact, we learn that hanging on often blocks us from getting what we want and need.

Who are we to say that things aren't happening exactly as they need to happen?

There is magic in letting go. Sometimes we get what we want soon after we let go. Sometimes it takes longer. Sometimes the specific outcome we desire doesn't happen. Something better does. 

Letting go sets us free and connects us to our Source.

Letting go creates the optimum environment for the best possible outcome and solutions.

Today, I will relax. I will let go of that which is upsetting me that most. I will trust that be letting go, I have started the wheels in motion for the things to work out in the best possible way."
~Melody Beattie
