In a recent yoga class, my wonderful, gentle instructor, Adi Amar, said, ” the more you can let go, the more you will receive.” I think all of us, at some point in our lives, struggle to Let Go. Whether we are holding onto a negative storyline, an old or recent conflict, emotions that make us uncomfortable such as anxiety, fear, jealousy…we all have had moments of holding onto things that no longer serve us. Letting go is hard. It requires trust, vulnerability, and accepting the fact that we are not in control. But when we let go of the things that no longer serve, our heart softens and opens, our perspective shifts and compassion for ourselves and others is nourished. In letting go, we release the barriers and obstacles we have created for ourselves, thinking they will “help” or protect us; instead, they prevent us from receiving the gifts waiting for us, the very things we yearn for. In letting go and opening our heart, we make ourselves available to receive love, understanding and wisdom, empathy, peace, contentment, joy, acceptance. What will you let go of today?
