Tuesday Thoughts And Letting Go
Hi Friends, What resonated with you about receiving in your feminine energy? A few of you said it came exactly at the right time. And as life is always full of paradoxes, we will talk about letting go. Receive, let go. Let go, receive. In either order. Sometimes we receive first and after a while need to let it go. Often we need to let go of something first, in order to receive something new. That can be hard. And as always, we look to nature; and what do we observe at this time of year? The leaves are being let go of from their branches and fall to the ground. Is that a bad thing? Often we associate letting go with a bad emotion. But is it? In nature, it's a perfectly good part of the cycle. The leaves compost or form a warm layer on the ground, and the nutrients are being stored in the roots, so they can be used in the spring for the growth of new leaves. Here are a few '"leaves" we can let go of this fall:
The conviction that we are not good enough.
The fear of not living up to people's expectations.
The constant comparison of ourselves to others.
The waiting to start something, until we think the circumstances are perfect.
Which one resonates with you? Start with that one and do some introspection. Even though I only listed four things, those four things can take years or a life time to let go of.
I allow myself to release what no longer serves me. Isabelle S.
Breathe in and out and release. Allow it to go. It is all part of divine design to let go of things. We are not doing something wrong and we certainly shouldn't criticize ourselves for releasing this from our lives. It is natural. It is part of the circle of life. Nature does it effortlessly. It might take quite a bit of effort on our part and everyone will have an opinion about you letting go of that thing. (See point # 2. ) The aspen doesn't compare itself to the maple tree. I have no research on this, but I'm sure they drop their leaves at different times. And different speeds. (See point # 3.) And it takes a whole lot of courage to start something when you believe that the time isn't right. It will never be perfect. It just is. So why not let go of the deceived perception that everything has to be perfect to start something new? As humans, we usually hold tight and we fight to hold on, and we fight to let go. It takes surrender, maybe forgiveness, to be in the state that allows us to let go. Surrender can be strength. Forgiveness can feel like a huge burden off your shoulders and heart. Sometimes letting go is an act of far greater power than hanging on. Release and use the newfound energy to embrace the present moment.
