If you have ever come to one of my yoga classes, you will know that at the start of each class my students are placed in a resting position where they can begin calming themselves and bringing their awareness into the room and their practice. As they are in a quiet meditative state, I often tell them during the mediation that if there has been anything today, yesterday, this past week or several weeks that has not served them in a positive way…. to let it go. Letting things go is almost always easier said than done.
As we approach the end of another year, I challenge each of you to take notice of this past year and really examine things in your life that no longer serve you. When something no longer serves you, it is no longer helping you move in a forward direction or the path that you now wish to proceed. It is sometimes as simple as letting go of a thought or dream, or it can be much more complex as in letting go of a friendship, toxic relationship, or maybe a job that you are unhappy with. These attachments can sometimes have such a stronghold on our lives that they feel impossible to ever let go of, even if we know it would be for the betterment of our life and soul. We find ourselves gripped and frozen in fear of the thought that if we let something go, that void may never be filled again. But the truth of the matter is, if we don’t let go, we will never have the inner freedom, liberty and choice to allow ourself the opportunity to find ourself in a happier, more desirable and rewarding space and place.
And so, I say to you again, take a deep breath, take some moments of time and truly go inward and seek that which no longer serves you. Acknowledge that it is time to let it go, honor and bless it for the purpose it served in your life and……. let it go. The vast horizon of your uncharted universe awaits you.
Wishing you a safe and blessed holiday season. I love you all.
