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 loving 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 complex, continuous streaming of the collective mind. There can also be energy or judgment that someone close to you is throwing your way. Learn to allow thoughts to come and go without allowing them to weigh you down.
Here’s How to Let It Go
The solution to your problems, issues, or worries will always come to you when you stop forcing a resolution and allow yourself to merge with the flow of wisdom that is always available to you from your own being-ness. So when you’re feeling the pressure, tell yourself, “I am now willing to receive calm, ease, and clarity about this issue.” In other words, Let It Go!
Ask to raise your resonance and your frequency in a more nurturing, expanded state. If you have really let go, this should be an easy direction. And if taking action helps you shift your focus, do something pleasant. For example, you could take a hot bath or go for a walk in nature. You could sing, dance, or move for fun, unstructured and uninhibited.
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. Instead, 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!
Mental health and self-care are an important part of letting go of the negativity and unimportant thoughts in life. We all have thoughts and feelings which is natural and out of our control, but how we react to each of these things is completely in our control. Allow yourself to have thoughts and feelings and then allow yourself to let them go if they are unhealthy or weighing you down. This will be what allows you to move forward in life.
