There is a purpose and meaning to everything in life.. Loving yourself and letting go is actually a very self-less act! We heal others through random acts of kindness, through our compassion, forgiveness and standing up for those who don’t have a voice. Letting go when it comes to our closest and most intimate relationships is the most difficult yet it is a powerful self-less act of giving to others and loving yourself!
Let’s face it, letting go is hard sometimes! One of the reasons is because there is almost always some sort of resistance in play or what you want to let go of would just go gracefully and without struggle. What if the healing your most intimate relationship, the one with yourself, is really about the letting go of resistance? What if letting go was the most gracious and self-less act of giving? What if it was the most loving way of healing not only yourself but someone else?
Letting go and releasing energy IS the ultimate in terms of self- love AND a self-less act of kindness that affects both you and those around you! It is the greatest way to respect yourself and a gift that respects that you (and/or someone else) are exactly where you should be at this time under whatever circumstances are going on. Holding on to energy among other things is about ‘lack’ and means you don’t trust yourself to be able to create something new.
The release of hopes, dreams and good times are just as important as letting go of pain. It frees you and expands the space for you to create more hopes, dreams and good times, not to mention it also puts the vibration of those things into the universe so they can come back to you effortlessly! Much of what we hold on to is steeped in fear of the unknown. What will life be like if we let go of this or that? Letting go is a gift of FREEDOM.
“If you love someone, set them free. If they come back, they’re yours; if they don’t they never were.”~Richard Bach
This is not just about intimate relationships. You are always relating in some way to everything. Consider that setting “someone” or “something”free allows you more space and freedom. If you’re holding on to the energy of someone else, or someone else’s problems and your focus is on the shadow and not the light, it affects your relationship with yourself as well as ALL your relationships!
Set yourself free and put your feet upon a path of self-love by letting go! The light is streaming in for you to fill up with if you choose to let it in! Whatever you hold on to, let it go! There is always light so let the sun shine in! If you’d like some perspective, take a look at the photo on this post. The shadow is teeny tiny in the background as the light fills the bottle! ~Shine Your Light Debbie
