As summer winds down and the cool crisp air sets in, what old situations are calling for release?

When we let situations fester, our hearts hurt and build walls of protection. You let nothing in and yet everything you crave and desire comes in. Amazing opportunities sit outside waiting for you to let your barriers down.

Liz and Donna strolled through the park weekly during their lunch break. This was deemed their “Company venting session.” They complained about teammates, bosses, and management. Yet, they never considered changing their approach to a relationship or even thinking about the problem from a different perspective.

Situations that don’t go as expected can leave us frustrated and angry. This pent up anger can then lead to outbursts that end up affecting those around us even though they may not be part of the original situation. When this negative energy continues to dwell on us, it weighs us down.

  • We develop a foul mood.
  • Our bodies become lethargic.
  • We become mentally foggy.
  • We become reactive.
  • We even gain weight.
  • Tension develops in our bodies and muscles and joints may ache.

Sound familiar?

Perhaps you need to forgive yourself for not giving your all to an activity. Perhaps someone didn’t treat you fairly. Maybe you are still carrying a tragic event that happened in your childhood. It sucks when things don’t go your way. How can you forgive those that hurt you?

To release is to let go and forgive.

The question is – what can we learn from it? How do we transform it into making us a better person?

I always say my father’s death as a kid was the best and worst thing that ever happened to me. I now appreciate life and live life to its fullest. Think about how you can transform those bad experiences into something you can learn from.

The full moon later this week always represents the light among the darkness. So, on every full moon. I love to perform this easy, simple ritual. Find a quiet place. Take a few minutes and write down everything you need to release – people, events, situations, etc. Then, burn this piece of paper. (Do this outside your residence and keep water nearby so nothing else catches on fire.)

When you release the old, you allow room for rich new experiences to enter your life. This also gives you more energy for the opportunities headed your way! 

Wishing you an abundant, joyful and prosperous day!
