Let go so you can let love in
Because an integral part of my energy healing techniques revolve around ‘letting go’, I get asked by my students, “Melissa, how do you do this letting go thing you talk about?”
So today’s post is all about answering the question: how do you let go?
The process is quite easy, so let’s get started!
How to let go of expectations
For me, there are 4 important components of letting go of expectations, and they are:
No matter what the intention is or was, making the conscious effort to look squarely at what the outcome is (or isn’t) and recognising it for what it is (or isn’t), is the foundational step towards unburdening yourself.
The next step, understanding, is more about understanding the fact that there’s a reason behind why something happened the way it did (or didn’t). This step doesn’t mean you comprehend exactly what the details are that led to the outcome, but you know that life has it’s own process – and you understand that.
Assessing the situation isn’t about becoming over-analytical and judgmental over what happened. Don’t assess with the intention of trying to work out a way to “will” things to happen which just aren’t meant to happen. This step is about realising what’s within the grasp of what you can do, within the reach of what you can affect — and ask yourself, “if I had done it a bit different, would the outcome have been different?
Sometimes you can’t control things, you can just start things moving – but then accept that what it is, at that point in time. This eases our analytical mind from overthinking and replaying things unnecessarily.
Last step is my favourite part: gratitude! Being grateful for the fact you did the best you could, and that you have the opportunity to make a change in the next moment to make it different or better – if you choose – is a gift we are all blessed with.
By this point, you will realise that you can put the expectations down and let go – and move forward in life!
Remember, we’re gifted (and I truly mean that) with every second we that we grace this world. And with every second we have, it is another second chance to be better, be kinder, be more loving! I hope you realise how special that is, and that you can change for the better, you can let go to lighten your load, you can shine your light!
No matter where you are in your journey sweet friends, I hope you keep practicing spreading more love & light! #biglove
