In spiritual circles, the mantra is “let go and let God.” Sage advice for all because “letting go” is a healing process that results in a physically,and healthier life.
Yet, you may be frustrated when it comes to the experience of “letting go.” Letting go is not an action step. It is a decision to release the inner emotional blocks that prevent your true being from shining so you can experience peace, happiness and joy.
This is what the Dalai Lama meant when he stated:
“Inner disarmament first, then outer disarmament.”
The implication of this statement is obvious: we are all part of the whole, so when we let go and heal ourselves, we heal for the benefit of the entire world.
Letting go is also about surrendering your life to aand acknowledging that this power lives in you and wants you to be happy. It is also about giving this Power permission to use you as a vessel for good.
All spiritual and religious paths ultimately require a letting go or surrendering process. In other words, all roads lead to God.
As Relationship Coaches and spiritual teachers, we have found that no matter what road you may take, it is important to travel with preparedness. We have discovered that the letting go process occurs when you allow the power of courage, acceptance, love and peace in to your life.
Courage is rooted in any thought, belief or statement that begins with the words “I can…” When you affirm that you can emotionally let go of the pain you harbor within you, you open a channel for healing and release the wounds that bind and imprison you from within.
Courage means the willingness to look at your fears. A Course in Miracles defines all fears as illusions. When you examine your fears and acknowledge their presence, you will see how they have inhibited the Life Force within you.
By shedding light on the fear (illusion) and courageously walking through it and letting it go, you begin to notice positive changes in yourself and in your life. This process is not about making your fears your enemies. Instead, it is about embracing them, feeling them, and then having the courage to rise above them.
This is the true spiritual definition of success: feeling the fear and having the courage to move forward and take action in spite of it.
Acceptance means that everything is perfect as it is. Letting go becomes easier with acceptance. You become more nurturing and supportive of others and yourself without any feelings of loss or sacrifice. It’s affirming: “All is well in my world” even when outward appearances may demonstrate otherwise.
This is not denial or putting your head in the sand. Through acceptance, you will begin to see the innocence in everyone. You will begin to realize that most people are erroneously operating from a place of fear; frantically trying to eliminate struggle from their lives today so they can finally be happy tomorrow.
Acceptance is the starting point for letting goodness into your life. Acceptance opens doors of opportunity that previously remained shut. It does so because you have shifted and raised your energetic vibration to a higher frequency.
When you incorporate courage and acceptance into your inner world you will find yourself becoming more loving and peaceful. As a result, you will also find yourself attracting more loving and peaceful people and relationships into your life.
Love is the most powerful remedy for emotional healing. When you have the willingness and courage to be more loving, and to let love into your life, you will find that “letting go” occurs spontaneously.
When you courageously face your fears and “accept what is” in any given moment, you realize that your greatest desire: to love and be loved, was ultimately your greatest fear. Once you shine the light of Truth and embrace love in its’ purest, unconditional form, your life is transformed forever!
Peace: we all want It’s your greatest power. When you let go by courageously “accepting what is” and loving all life unconditionally, inner peace is the result. When you add the choice for peace, rather than being right and making others wrong, you ultimately let go. .
With inner peace you will notice a reduction in fear and all its’ distressing emotions.
As a result, all aspects of your life begin to take on a healthier dimension. By letting go you will also feel and look younger. You will find yourself more enthusiastic and inspired. New doors of opportunity will open. You will have a new zest for life.
“Letting go” is an awakening to living Life in the one and only Reality. The key attributes of that Reality are inner peace and unconditional love. When you let go, you eliminate the source of all your suffering and pain. You have literally rediscovered what you are made of and who you truly are now and forever. “Know that ye are Gods!” When you “get” that, you’ve “let go!”
