Are you experiencing anxiety in your life? The art of letting go allows you to move beyond fear and open up to a loving world of support.
Not long ago I was going through a very difficult time in my life. I found myself questioning my path, my choice to teach. I let go of all other sources of income as I followed my passion to share the inspirational messages that so touched my heart.
The possibility of not doing this filled my whole being with anguish and heaviness. It seemed at that time that unless I found another source of income, the prospect of losing my home was becoming a very real possibility. Was spirit trying to tell me to do something else?
In the depth of my own fears, I was not able to see clearly. After putting myself through incredible turmoil, I finally LET GO.
I turned it all over to GOD. My home, my possessions and all that I held so dear. I decided to be in the moment. To allow myself to be open to any synchronistic event that may occur. To be open to possibilities. I JUST LET GO and felt such an incredible weight lift from me.
Moments later the phone rang. It was a call from a woman who attended one of my talks. She shared with me that it was the first time she had ever experienced a meditation. As part of the meditation, I had everyone reflect on the possibility that if you could not change anything in your life, past present or future, and if this was your last week on the planet, WOULD YOU FEEL COMPLETE? She said what she experienced was a loud NO inside her head. I then asked everyone to consider WHAT WOULD IT TAKE FOR YOU TO FEEL COMPLETE? She said, “A message came in so loud and clear, and in that instant I knew I had to find my son.” She then told me that over 20 years ago she had given birth to a baby boy and gave him up for adoption. She´s lived in guilt and remorse ever since. As a result she never had another child. She was afraid to reach out for fear that he would not want to see her, was he still alive and well and so on. In that moment during the meditation she knew it was time. She continued, “I want you to know that I went to the office, registered and found that he was already registered and waiting for me. We have talked on the phone and are making arrangements to meet each other.”
The tears streamed down my cheeks, and I gave thanks. For if I was to do nothing else, I felt blessed to have been a part of that process. I then heard spirit gently saying to me, “BE PATIENT MY CHILD, YOU WILL BE PROVIDED FOR”.
“CM” when you read this, bless you and thank you for being an angel when I needed one.
TO LET GO does not mean to stop caring, it means I can´t do it for someone else.
TO LET GO is not to cut myself off, it´s the realization I can´t control another.
TO LET GO is not to enable, but to allow learning from natural consequences.
TO LET TO is to admit powerlessness, which means the outcome is not in my hands.
TO LET GO is not to try to change or blame another, it´s to make the most of myself.
TO LET GO is not to care for, but to care about.
TO LET GO is not to fix, but to be supportive.
TO LET GO is not to judge, but to allow another to be a human being.
TO LET GO is not to be in the middle arranging all outcomes, but to allow others to affect their own destinies.
TO LET GO is not to be protective, it´s to permit another to face reality.
TO LET GO is not to deny, but to accept.
TO LET GO is not to nag, scold or argue, but instead to search out my own shortcomings and correct them.
TO LET GO is not to adjust everything to my desires, but to take each day as it comes and cherish myself in it.
TO LET GO is not to regret the past, but to grow and live for the future.
TO LET GO IS TO FEAR LESS AND LOVE MORE.
