Let it go…Let it Go…are you ready to be Liberated?

Great week ~ Independence Day!  Did you enjoy this great holiday?

Strangely, I felt liberated, it was kind of my personal Independence Day ~ oh, I cried…carried on, you see  ~ I needed to get rid of some old things that I have been holding on to for umm ~ 34 years.  ~ WHAT?  Yes, that’s right I have held on to numerous items from 1980 that I thought were an important part of my life.  While all it really provided were the building blocks for the walls of my isolation for decades.  Too afraid to feel, concealing the turmoil, the numbing of my body and my mind, crying on the inside and putting on the ‘brave’  face for the rest of the world.

For some reason it just felt right to release all of the hurts and fears, now.   I am feeling well grounded, stronger than I have been in years  and looking only to the future.  It has been liberating, removing the clutter from my home and freeing up space for miracles to happen.  There was some real soul-searching, the loss that I experienced all those years ago, felt as fresh this week as the day it occurred.  Items that would go a year or two without revisiting and then it seemed like it was time to dredge the hurt up again.

Finally, I have been able to remove objects, that to my discovery have done nothing but bind me to the past and block me from really moving forward into the future.   These things are nothing more than the reminders of what could have been, holding me in a pattern of grief all of these years.  I will never forget the lesson, the memories, the treasures and the moments shared.

Are you experiencing life’s lessons to the fullest, or just burying them for later excavation?  I invite you to share this post and let’s start a conversation.

Let it go, Let it go ~ the past is in the past.

What’s in a number? Self-esteem? Judgment? Condemnation? Weakness?

I could go on and on.

Isn’t it funny how we tend to focus more on the number that we see on the scale, rather than look into the soul, the essence of who we really are?  I talk about lessons learned but here you go, this is one I have struggled with my whole life. Today I am starting to look at the numbers differently, with greater perspective.

This is not a judgment of who I am, but the journey that I need to experience.  I have been watching one of my Master Teachers struggle with the issue of the numbers. So concentrated on what her body image is that she is manifesting greater density – in thought and form. (Yes, we all have many Masters in our life demonstrating by example – creating situations that we often judge quickly as good or bad.)   Perhaps  there is no right or wrong,  just a starting point for what is yet to come.

Now picture this: a mental snapshot of who you want to be, not the image that you have distorted in the mirror. Feel the ideal number for your frame, enjoy the emotions that you receive from this picture ~ join me on the journey. Consider that feeling and know that it is already done. Our thoughts are the first step in the process of creation.

We are all precious, wanting to be loved, even adored ~ start with yourself and embrace the wonder.    Awaken to who you really are.
