Our lives are made up of all the experiences we’ve had to date. How you approach life and your general outlook is based on information gained in the past. How many times have you said “if I knew then what I know now…”? If you did know then what you know now would your choices have changed? Maybe yes, maybe no, but keep in mind that the choices you make now are affected by the energy and pictures of the past that are difficult to let go of.
Why is it so hard to let go?
Whether they are considered positive or negative, many past experiences are ’super-charged’ with energy. Some of it is yours and some is not. If you’re not sure what I mean try thinking about something that really affected you in the past. When you think about it does your heart beat a little faster or is there a strong emotion that comes along with it? Do you shift uncomfortably in your chair or feel the need to go do something else immediately when you think of it?
If you experience a reaction, no matter what it is, the “picture” in your mind is still “charged” and it’s time to de-energize it so you can clear it. The experience will stay in your memory and in the case of a beautiful moment will still make you smile but your energy will be in the present and there will be more space to have and create many more beautiful moments! In the case of what you consider tragic or negative experiences you bring your energy into present time to create a renewed sense of comfort and safety.
One of the most common things I see in reading sessions is that it’s not the super-charged picture people have trouble letting go of, it’s the resistance. Once you clear the resistance you begin to de-energize the picture in your mind; Then you take your energy back and the letting go becomes effortless. If you are truly in a space of wanting to let go and make separation try focusing on letting go of the resistance instead of the thing you want to let go of. You might be surprised at what you resist and you may even find the resistance isn’t YOURS. Yes, you may actually be resisting someone else’s resistance. Is there someone you’d stop healing if you clear the picture and take back your power and energy?
What did you learn from your experience?
What happened to you happened and what is happening now is happening now. The good, the bad and the ugly are all a part of you but your experiences are not who you are; They are learning experiences which help you grow and expand as spirit. What you hold on to quite possibly colors your decisions in the present and you have a choice not just move on but to learn from the experience, de-energize what keeps you stuck in the past and create more space for yourself. In this year of rapid and great change it’s even more important to be grounded and have your energy with you in the present.
It’s time to let go effortlessly! It’s time to allow difficult memories and pictures from the past to transform into learning experiences. It’s time to give yourself a moment of peace by clearing resistance, forgiving yourself and others. It’s time to let go of what previously defined you. You are spirit and you are learning in a very human way. It’s time to let go of those things that happened in the past and take back your energy and power so you can once again dream in the present to create beautiful future.~Shine Your Light Debbie
