Across the range of interesting clients we appreciate being able to work with, we regularly encounter hard working individuals who are seeking to change old patterns of behaviour that are keeping them in a rut. Aspects of their life can feel stunted, or not well grounded, leading to restrictions in the level of joy, excitement and zest for life currently being experienced by that person. One form of powerful breakthrough to help people move out of that rut in their life is to explore the concept and feel the emotional shift associated with choosing to “ Let Go” !
This can be a challenging step if the person mistakenly assumes that letting go is a sign of weakness or capitulation or failure. Nothing could be further from the truth ! Appropriately letting go requires wisdom, courage and trust in yourself.
If this concept of wisely “Letting Go” of past limiting patterns or personal setbacks seems important to you at this point in your life, then please enjoy taking some moments to reflect on the following selected themes :
“To Let Go” does not mean to stop caring. It just means accepting I cannot do it for someone else.
“To Let Go” is not to try to change or blame another, it is to make the most of myself.
“To Let Go” is not to be protective, it is to permit others to face reality.
“To Let Go” is not to adjust everything to my desires but to take each day as it comes and cherish myself in it.
“To Let Go” is to fear less and love more.
If you are finding it difficult to let go, call Guidelight 07 5527 0123 to arrange a confidential appointment with one of our caring counsellors.
