Have you ever felt let down?

At one time or another have you ever felt that someone disappointed you and let you down? Have you ever felt bad that you’ve done this to someone else?  There are many reasons for this to happen but you don’t have to carry it around with you!

In recent meditations I’ve been working on clearing the energy of disappointment and letting someone down. I had been noticing the energy of guilt and punishment around this, so I took a clairvoyant look to see what was going on. 🙂

To clear the energy and de-energize the pictures, first I had to forgive myself for being “human” and therefore not perfect. I also noticed how much of my energy was going toward ‘healing’  or apologizing to those that I felt I had let down.

As I cleared and called back my energy, other “pictures” and energies began to emerge. I began to see clearly not only expectations that had been placed upon ME but how many people wanted to apologize for disappointing or letting ME down!

No wonder I was feeling stuck and it was difficult to create something new. My energy was in effort trying to heal others or responding to an apology from someone else for a past action. I didn’t have MY energy to create with in the present! That was a true AH HA moment for this little clairvoyant! 🙂

There is a lot of energy that one can hold on to around being disappointed or let down. When you are holding on to  expectation, guilt or continually feeling the need to apologize you are in effort and actually giving your energy and power away!

An expectation could be considered a perfect picture and something that neither you nor anyone else can live up to. When the expectation is not met “perfectly” there is a sense of being let down and disappointed. Not ALL expectations are “perfect pictures” but certainly a lot of them are.

Expectation is a picture focusing on a future event and will most certainly be followed by a let down if it doesn’t happen EXACTLY the way you EXPECTED it to.

In many ways, it also creates a limit to what could be! Think about those times you’ve said you couldn’t imagine an outcome and  then it  “went beyond anything you could have ever expected.” 🙂

Of course everyone gets disappointed every now and then but are you holding on to it? Being momentarily disappointed and feeling let down is a natural response. It can also be an AH HA moment and lets you know where your energy was! 

Disappointment is the let down for not meeting an expectation. It is steeped in the past. When you hold on to disappointment your energy is in that past and not present for you to create with!

Take a moment for inner reflection on this. Are you holding on to any disappointment, feelings of being let down or letting someone else down? Have you placed expectations on yourself or others? Do you feel like you need to apologize for letting someone down?

If you notice any of this going on…let it go. You can’t change that past but you certainly can fill  up with the energy of  forgiveness for yourself and others.

Let it go and let the past give you a PRESENT; The gift of a lesson learned, an experience to be cherished and the knowledge that maybe, just maybe, it was just an energy in your space to be cleared. 🙂 ~Shine your Light Debbie

  1. Hi Debbie,
    I just stumbled upon this and had a “lightbulb” moment… Thanks for posting this. It has helped me to make sense of some “stuff” and as a result I have more clarity on “mirroring”. I witnessed behaviour I didn’t like in somebody and came to realise that it was a reflection of my own behaviour. I know what I have to do and it all starts with letting go of the past and looking at the PRESENT, and what a gift that is!
    Thank you, sincerely
