As I mentioned in part one, letting go allowed me to simply “be.” I found that I was finally able to exist in the world without concerning myself with the future, the people around me, or the past. I could let go of it all and simply remain present in the moment. I used to spend so much time in my head focusing on the “what if’s” and predicting outcomes that might never actually happen, all in an effort to guard myself from the possibility of hurt and pain. Letting go has eliminated all of this wasted energy. Energy that I spent worrying is now available for me to use for love and connection. I feel light, present, and inspired.
Letting go means that I have faith in the universe, in myself, and in those around me. I can trust fully in my own abilities to assess the world and face challenges, knowing that I will realize what is best for me. This faith and trust has allowed me to feel a sense of excitement about the uncertainty of the future. Letting go means not living in the past or the future, rather living through my heart in every moment. This allows me to do the things that I need to be true to myself. Letting go has given me the ability to create an authentic life that fills me with joy and fulfillment.
On a physical level, my heart feels open. I sometimes have this image of my heart expanding in my chest and I am simply following around this big beautiful heart throughout my life. I have another picture of my heart bursting open with love and joy. I feel like I have enough space in my heart to fit everyone and everything into it. There is room for forgiveness, mature love, and acceptance, just to name a few. I realize that through letting go, I can and will have everything in my life that I need and will have a life I desire. Letting go has allowed life to simply happen. I welcome and embrace all that presents itself to me on this journey, both positive and negative, as I now know without a doubt that my faith and trust will guide me to exactly where I desire to go.
