Let Go Meaning – What It Really Is

Letting go is how you move on from something or someone. But what is the true meaning of letting go? It is actually just how it sounds!

Have you ever carried something about for way to long and your hand just simply couldn’t grip it any longer? Well then what happened? You let it go and you felt a whole lot better!

Well the same can be said about letting go of someone you love, letting go of things at work, during meditation or simply letting go of things driving you nuts!

That is the true meaning of letting go. You are able to drop things and move on for good. True letting go is letting go of something that will never have to plague you again. You will feel positive about the topic that used to hurt you instead of pain.

So let me show you how to swap pain for happiness!

How To Let Go Of The Past and Move Forward!

So options are always good right? Today I am going to show you 3 ways that you can use to let go of anything you want in this life. It can save you years of therapy as well as alleviate you from suffering right on the spot. Enjoy my friends.

Now I want to hammer the fact in that all of this is very SIMPLE. Keep it simple when doing these exercises. The mind want to make it complicated because when we do this acts, we are putting our ego under attack. And our ego doesn’t want to be attacked.

It will make things seem complicated when it is insanely simple. So keep it simple my friends!

Opening Up A Flower

So the first step is super simple, actually just like every tip were going to give you. But this one especially, will take you far quick. So bring up an unwanted emotion. Feel it as it comes up, don’t push it away or try to resist it.

Often times when we simply allow a feeling to be present, it will dissipate a bit. Anyways, wherever your feeling is, the unwanted one, imagine a flower opening up over or inside the feeling.

It doesn’t matter what type of flower, just pick your favorite. Repeat this process a few times. Imagine the flower opening entirely around or over that feeling. You should start to feel more chill after a couple of rounds of this. Maybe even after the first one!

Flowers don’t just smell good now, they can be way more useful than that!

Saying Yes Instead of NO

Again, what we resists, persists. That is a fact of life and a universal fact. What we do when we try to surpress unwanted feelings or thoughts, we subconsciously are saying NO to them. Well now we can reverse engineer how the mind works and use it for us, not against us.

So again bring up an unwanted feeling and simply just say YES to it. Try this a few times in a row until you feel better about that issue you previously felt negative about.

Drop IT LITERALLY!

Now again, it can be incredibly frustrating when some asshat tells you to just drop it. But now I can show you exactly how to truly DROP a feeling. Now how do you drop something hot in your hands? Well you simply stop clenching it and let it go! You drop that SOB!

Well imagine that your feeling is something you are holding onto. You have been doing so a long time so it may just seem like it is part of you. But it isn’t you. It is simply energy. So you can let it out of you.

The way you do this is to simply let it go. Like you would with an object in your hand.

You can pretend like it is something heavy you have been holding onto. REALLY heavy. And now it is time to drop it like a piece of luggage you have been carry around. That is why they call it baggage!

So essentially your awareness is your “fist” and the unwanted feeling or thought is the “hot object” or “heavy object”. Metaphorically speaking.

Now give this a try. Simply drop it. Say “I decide to let this go, now”

Wait until you are ready to drop it to. Feel the feeling, be present with it. Then drop it like you would drop anything else!

Again, try this a few times and you should feel a lot lighter about the thing you felt heavy about! Whether that is letting go of someone you love, a bad scenario in your childhood, a work issue. It doesn’t matter, you have the innate ability to let things go, LITERALLY. Always think in literal terms when it comes to this. It isn’t just a cute saying anymore, you can really let go of things.

5 Ways That Make Letting Go EVEN EASIER!

Below are a few tips that you can use to make letting go super effortless for yourself. Check them out!

LOVE the Feeling!

Love is the most powerful force in the universe. Loving thoughts vibrate higher than any other thought you can have. By simply loving your unwanted feel or picture in your head, you can do some damage to unwanted thing in your life.

Accept Unwanted Feelings

You can also accept it as it is. Doing this will stop all the resistance you have to the feeling. When you accept something as it is, you are taking it as face value. You are no longer judging it.

When you accept an unwanted feeling in your body, you are giving it permission to be where it is in your body. Now from there your body will resist this feeling a lot less now. Allowing you to let go of it more effortlessly than if you were resisting it.

Don’t Judge The Feeling

By not judging the feeling, you allow yourself to see it as something that isn’t frightening or scary anymore. By not passing judgement, you allow it to be where it is in your body.

Take for instance a feeling of guilt. If you feel the guilt and become guilty by letting the feeling take you over, you are now to immersed in the feeling to let it go. But if you see it as simple energy, then you are able to get rid of it because you are not letting yourself become that emotion any longer.

Doing this will let you more easily let the feeling out permanently and a lot easier than you would if you were judging it.

Don’t Identify With It

Often times we like our feelings a bit too much because they feel like they are us. That they our a part of our story. Well transformation comes when we move on from this story so we can become what we are truly meant to be.

So when you are letting go of things, do me a solid and don’t identify with it. It isn’t who you are so you don’t have to be one with it.

Disassociated with your feeling will allow you to see it objectively. It will allow you to feel separate from the unwanted feeling. Letting you easily let it go because you no longer feel like you are letting go of something that is you. You will now feel like you are letting go of something that is not you. Which is the truth!

One at A Time

Letting go of something needs to be seen as doing so one at a time. Often times when we go to let something go, we get overwhelmed a bit. Often times we subconsciously think we are letting go of EVERYTHING.

That we won’t be ourselves anymore. Simply hone in on this unwanted scenario you want to let go. Tell yourself, one thing at a time. Deal with things you want to let go, one thing at at time. This will make the process seem so much more simple and easy and safe.

It ISN’T Giving Up

I know this as well as anyone. Often times when I need to let go of something or someone, I as human being feel like it is giving up or WEAK. But the truth of the matter is, when I do end up letting things go I feel more free and more in control than I did when I was holding on.

We have this preconceived idea that letting go is weak, that it is something that we shouldn’t and if we do then we lose the battle so to say.

It is sad because society has bred us to be this way. But in actuality, the things in life that seem to be the weakest acts are most often the strongest things we can do for ourselves.

So seeing letting go as a strong move will allow you to let go easier and more often!
