Let Go.

There is effort in letting go. In order to let go we need a willingness to look and listen to what we are holding. Do we have tension in our bodies? What is causing that tension? Is there tension in our thoughts? Is there tension or holding/griping in our emotions? The practice of stillness, allowing the breath to come and go, allowing the body to rest and feel supported, allowing our emotions to rise and fall is so valuable in how we discover where and how we hold tension. It is this deep listening that frees up the path to release and let go.

Holding on keeps us feeling productive and in control. Our patters of running around, constant 'to do" and 'I'm so busy' lists can be a way to avoid pain, discomfort and unwelcome feelings in the body and mind. Slowing down, allowing and letting go gives us the freedom and space to receive the release and safety and comfort that results from letting go and accepting all of who we are.

Our mantra for the week is...

I am free to let go.

I allow myself space and stillness to let go.

More and more I am learning to let go of all I cannot control.

I let go of control.

Our journaling prompt is…

Write the words, "I am free to let go."

What is your first thought when you read (or say) these words?

Is there an associated sensation?

Is there an emotion?

Is there something you are ready to let go of? What would that process look like? Feel like?

Write for 5-20 minutes. Put it aside and come back tomorrow to see if you notice any themes emerging.

And our meditation is...

Find a comfortable seat. This can be sitting on the floor, in a chair. This can be laying down or even standing with support. You can choose to keep your eyes open or close them gently.

Connect to the sensation of your breath. Say "I am breathing in. I am breathing out." for 7-10 breaths. Be here in the breath.

You may have heard this before.

I should be doing this.

I should be doing that.

Let these words rise and fall. See if you can find the inner voice. Your inner loving voice that says...

I am doing enough.

I am enough.

If you are having trouble finding your inner voice. Simply encourage your inner voice to come out by repeating the words...

I am doing enough.

I am enough.

Stay with this meditation as long as you want or need to and then return to your day, maybe a little lighter, a little calmer, a little less overwhelmed.
