“When you let go, you create space for better things to enter your life.”
This is the mantra as I head into my last full week at home. Let go, release bad energy, and create space for better things to come.
But letting go is hard. Like letting go of thoughts that have been engrained within you for so long.
->Ex: the thought that feeling bloated makes me less worthy of nourishment.
I know this thought is irrational, but it pops up from time to time. Instead of ignoring it, shoving it down, pretending like it’s not there… I chose to journal about it. Put it on my blog. And acknowledge it for what it is. By bringing it to the surface, I am able to let it go. Letting it go may result in feeling uncomfortable emotions. Maybe crying. Sadness. Worry. But in letting it go, we have more room for attracting goodness in our life.
->Ex of this from yesterday: I am feeling anxious without a lot of structure in my life. I am not in school and am not working right now. This is causing me to feel stagnant and like I’m not making great strides in my life.
I have been suppressing this emotion for the past two weeks. It has made its way out through frustration with others and being short with family members. But today, I finally sat down and took the time to acknowledge it. I feel lazy lately. I feel like I’m not doing enough. I expressed this verbally. I took time to reach out to others to share how I was feeling. I let myself feel, even though it led to tears. But in letting myself feel it all out, I am able to fully release it.
In feeling all these feelings, I am able to let them go. And in letting go, I am able to cultivate abundance in my life. I have already seen this in so many areas of my life. I have seen that when I don’t put all my energy into restricting my meals, I have more energy for other things. I am able to bring more into my life. When I stopped putting such immense pressure on myself to get perfect grades and let go of the belief that I had to get all A’s, I felt a weight off my shoulders… letting go of something that no longer served me allowed me to have more time for the things that did serve me. Like more self-care, putting time into relationships that made me feel good, and getting more in touch with myself and what I need.
Think: how much energy do you put into thoughts and actions that don’t serve you? Imagine all the amazing things that would come if you just let GO, if you just put that energy into those self-destructive thoughts and behaviors into something more productive and meaningful. Think: think of ALL the abundance you could generate in your life if you let go to create more space for goodness in your life. This is my goal lately. Let go of what doesn’t serve me to have more space and energy for what does.
What can you let go of in your life right now?
