Can You Let Go?

Imagine standing in front of a crowded audience. The lights beam as you notice all eyes are on you. How are you feeling? Are your palms sweaty and your heart racing or do you revel in the spotlight? Now imagine that you are sailing at sea—far enough out that you can no longer see the coastline. Suddenly, the beautiful sky has turned ominous as a storm swells in the distance. Do you dwell in the “what if?” or trust that you’ll get back home safely?

We all react differently to varying situations. Fears or worries are usually built upon past experiences we are still holding on to. Can you learn to release what you hold?

Practice and Release

Close your eyes and see yourself sitting on the bank of a slow-moving river. Imagine there are multiple boxes on the ground next to you. Inside each one is a single word representing something that creates fear, worry or sadness within you.

When you are ready, pick up one box you are ready to release from your life. Place the box in the river and watch it float away. That emotion is no longer yours. Now you are able to move beyond. Throughout this week, return to this visual often. Continue to let go of what is no longer yours. Breathe and smile knowing that emotion is no longer holding you back.
