I’m sorry I haven’t posted on here for a little while, I’ve been busy with school, work and some things in my life. Everything is good though! 🙂
So today I’d like to write about letting go. I’ve wanted to write about this for a month or so now, so I’m glad I’ve finally set some time aside to do it! I’ve noticed recently in my life that I have habit of holding onto things emotionally because I want to make sure that I remember what happened so that it doesn’t happen again. Which takes a bit of a toll on you after a while when you don’t even realize that you’re doing it in the first place. So I had asked my spirit guide, Kaine, how I can work on letting go of these things in a healthier way, in a way that allows me to safely let go of what had happened emotionally so that I can just move on in my life. What he says is in italics, as usual.
Learning from something that happened in your life is important, and it can be difficult at times to do so in a healthy manner. You may hold onto the emotional pains an event had caused you so that you will never forget and never allow for such an event to occur again in your life. Sure, this may work, but it is tiring and not necessary. You need to let go of that hold on that emotional pain. Let go and release it. You have already learnt what you needed to from the event itself and therefore do not need the added weight of the emotional pain. Your mind remembers perfectly well what occurred and what you learned from that life lesson, so energetically you don’t need to hold onto that emotional pain any longer. It blocks you both energetically and emotionally. If you are still focused on what so-and-so did to you once that hurt you and you have not fully let go and released the emotions behind what that person did, it becomes difficult for you to be able to work with another person when a similar event occurs. That new person is not the same as so-and-so, but you will end up treating that new person with the same hurt you felt from before, even though this time the situation could be occurring in a healthier and more loving manner. And so in turn you may not be able to learn the most you could from this situation the second time around. This is why we suggest to you that you try letting go of the emotional thorns you’re trying to protect. You already know that the plant has thorns and that you won’t go running into it again, so you can finally pull out the thorn in your side and continue on.
Forgiveness can be a way to help you let go of the emotional pain as well. But remember, forgiveness is not saying that you condone what happened, that the fact that you were hurt is acceptable and okay. Forgiveness is releasing yourself from that event and the emotions. When you forgive you are giving yourself space from that situation, saying that you understand that you were hurt, that what occurred did in fact happen, but that you haven learned what you needed to from this and that you can move on with your own life. Let go of the fact that someone hurt you, and this always includes yourself, they were just trying to do what they felt was best, even if that did mean that you were harmed. If we were all living in the ‘perfect world’ then no one would get hurt or feel pain, because ultimately no one would want to or try to cause harm to another. So try to keep this in mind when you work on forgiveness. Everyone is just trying their best, living their best, and we all make mistakes at times because we are all imperfectly perfect. ❤
I know it’s not easy to let go and forgive, but once you start trying to work on that, you feel so much lighter. You can accept things into your life that you didn’t feel like you could have. Getting caught up on one little thing a person does wrong in your life can make it difficult to see how wonderful of a person they truly are. Just because a person is late to meet up with you to hang out doesn’t mean that they don’t care, just try talking to them and telling them that it hurts you and you feel as if they don’t appreciate the time that you spend together when they are late. They may not even realize that what they’re doing hurts you. So there are multiple ways to work on letting go and releasing the emotions we tend to hold onto and protect because of painful situations in our life. It’s okay to let go.
Thank you, all of you, for your support!
