Have you ever tried running with a sack of potatoes on your back? Chances are that you’re doing it right now. Just about everybody has things in their lives that weigh them down, preventing them from soaring, loving themselves and life the way it was meant to be loved. The reason many birds can fly is that they are incredibly light.
You won’t be getting a set of hollow bones anytime soon, but taking a load off your mind can have a similar effect.
Are Your Thoughts Your Own?
Scientific data suggests that somewhere between 80 and 98 percent of the thoughts that are running continuously through our minds are really not ours, but are a complex, continuous streaming of the collective mind. There can also be energy or judgement that someone close to you is throwing your way.
Here’s How to Let It Go
Ask to raise your resonance and your frequency in a more nurturing, expanded state. If you have really let go, then this should be an easy direction to take. And if taking action helps you shift your focus, do something pleasant. You could take a hot bath or go for a walk in nature. You could sing, dance or move in a fun, unstructured and uninhibited way.
Keeping Your Mind Healthy
Going forward, allow yourself to just “be” without negative thinking—whether the source of it is your own mind or the thoughts and comments of others. Don’t engage with energy and thoughts that belittle your value and self-worth. Practice forgiveness and compassion towards yourself and vow to feel good about your precious, sacred life. Vow to be a source of light and inspire others. Align with healing, honor and service to others. Smile from the top of your head to the tips of your toes. Be willing to laugh at how absurd the mind can be. And remember, whatever it is, you can Let It Go!
