One of my dear friends said to me, “If you truly love someone, you can let them go.” With any loss, do we get into the emotion of anger, feelings of being jipped or dishonored, or do we see the events in our lives as opportunities to learn and grow beyond our attachments? Can we heal and become empowered by making an important shift in awareness?
Fear of loss creates the need to hold on. The way clients describe their dilemma is like holding tightly on to a rope and beginning to lose their grip. As their fingers began to release, an overwhelming fear enters. What would happen if they let go?
That attachment keeps the unresolved conflict recreating itself. We can resist the events in our lives or we can accept what the universe has arranged. Resistance creates conflict and unhappiness. To find peace in life, we need to “make peace” with what is happening around us. The unmet need of feeling safe and protected is ready to be transformed.
This “holding on” is very different than standing up for oneself, knowing what is right. This nudge to “let go” gives us a signal to take the risk for something greater. The intuition, the subtle knowingness, is presenting itself, and we are being invited to listen.
Then, you might ask, are we really being given the opportunity to make a choice? Can you give up need to make a choice? That’s a hard one to give up as we are confronted with choices every minute of every day, and we hope that we are making the best one each time. We can resist the events in our lives or we can accept what the universe has arranged.
Resistance creates conflict and unhappiness. To find peace in life, we need to “make peace” with what is happening around us. It is important, however, that we become aware of the subtle knowingness that we can surrender, let go of the rope, and finally come to a place of peace.
It is so satisfying that through the Empowerment Process I have the opportunity to help my clients come to this feeling of peace. The Empowerment Process provides the opportunity to release our unresolved emotional patterns and disempowering beliefs. Anyone can let go of their story that keeps their disempowerment in place. Our human physiology is so adaptable, that it responds to energetic changes in our emotions, mental constructs, and psychological patterns.
