A wonderful friend of mine and I were talking the other night. We were discussing letting go and moving forward. She proceeded to hold out her hand and said, "imagine I'm holding a pencil. It's light, not a big deal. Now, imagine how it feels to hold it for a long time - it gets heavy. So, what do you do? You let go." I'd heard of this analogy before and it's a great way to understand that the longer we hold onto something - the heavier it gets. With all of the work I've done with releasing trapped and blocked energies, I get it. But, truth be told, there are just some things that are really hard to let go of. It could be our greatest desire to let go, but there's something that's holding us back from dropping that pencil. My wise friend said, "that's easy, the key to letting go is to reach for something else." Light bulb moment: reach for that which brings your heart joy.
I'll admit, I have some issues that I have not been able to let go of. Even with the box of tools I have to release this kind of stuff - I still couldn't get there. Using these tools have helped lessen the grip, but there's still a grip. While working with people, I've noticed energetic shackles that we've actually had to unlock and take off of their feet or wrists. These "shackles" had to be removed before the clearing could take place. Recently, I found myself going through the following steps to let go of a persistent issue. It involves visualization and actual motion:
So, if you're looking to let go of a stubborn issue remember to R.E.A.C.H. (Release Energetic Attachments by Choosing Happiness). When you make that conscious decision to choose happiness, it will be easier to drop "the pencil" and take the necessary action to obtain that which brings you joy and happiness. If you give this process a try, let me know how it goes.
