Letting Go

Healing Hands

Hello, I thoroughly enjoy your blog, and I am grateful that you are helping numerous people with their own life’s journey. My question regards with the concept of “letting go.” I am having such a hard time doing this. I do know mediation helps, but still a part of me feels deep pain for all the mistakes of my past. I know there were life’s lessons, but the guilt of hurting people I care for is unbearable & I notice this pain is impeding me to love the way I know i could. Any advice? Thank you
Hello, Thank you for following, i’m glad you appreciate the blog 🙂

i can understand in many ways how you can feel this way because we are only human, we all go through phases and life lessons where we face pain and truth. We must remember that all this pain is illusion. Although reiki has taught me many things about life and ascension for it is through our own deepest fears and pain that we face ourselves in the dark, digging deep into our wounds, our hurts, our misgivings and all our wrongdoings as lessons to ourselves to release. It’s very easy to get caught up in the past, we ALL do it but you can either run from it or learn from it, the choice is up to you. You can learn the easy way or the hard way but if you run it will inevitably just come with you , because that is still inside of you, until you face it, it will be there hauntingly. No matter how far you run, your problems always come with you until you face them, acknowledge them and forgive them. The past is in the past for a reason, it is there as a lesson to learn, it is not meant to be continuous strife. You have to acknowledge all you have gone through all that you have become and all that you have learned throughout this time.

Everyone faces this in their own way, but the true power will always be in forgiveness, it’s what opens the heart. The strongest person in the room is the one who will look beyond grudges and forgive. Forgive yourself, dig deep into the past, realize everything you have  gone through and know that you are stronger.

I used to have the worst self-esteem issues, i suffered inferiority complex and also had issues with self harm for a time but i can’t change it you know? I can’t fix what happened or what i did to myself, the worst person that hurt me was really myself all along and i needed to realize this, i needed to realize that this stemmed from an issue of control, an issue of self love and also an issue with my trust and feelings of others. I had to face myself, I had to forgive others for hurting me the same way i have hurt myself constantly and crying is perfectly natural. Crying is good, it helps release the old energies, it is a divine mechanism for letting go. So to acknowledge the pain, instead of running, because you can run all you like but it’s still there.

this is what ascension is really about, the dark night of the soul crawling into your wounds, crawling into the darkness of yourself, facing your own personal demons and all your faults. Realizing hey i did hurt these people, but why did i do it? everything is a reflection of the other, these hurts stem from a deeper part of yourself that you have to find and acknowledge and FACE. To borrow one of my favorite quotes:
Some people are afraid of what they might find if they try to analyze themselves too much, but you have to crawl into your wounds to discover where your fears are. Once the bleeding starts, the cleansing can begin. ~ Tori Amos

Rose quartz is a good friend for self-love and forgiveness. Also looking into reiki and healing energy is another great way to help let go. You have to find the cause behind the thought, you have to learn to love yourself, you have to forgive yourself but most importantly of all you have to acknowledge WHY you hurt these people. For it lies within and always has, our reflections of our relationships with others are merely deeper aspects of ourselves. reiki and spiritual healing by brett bevell is an excellent source, especially his chapter on the power of forgiveness. I’ll end this with a reiki chant that has helped me with my own issues:

I invoke the goddess within, the guidance of eternal love and light
blessed before me with healing golden light
the veil of green energy courses over my skin

I invoke the healing ray of green light to wash over me
Cho Ku Rei, Cho Ku Rei, Cho Ku Rei

I now will my higher self to send forgiveness reiki energy for the next hour
through my heart and my subconscious mind
to manifest forgiveness for all acts of harm i have caused to myself or otehers
in all my lifetimes
I manifest this now
So mote it be

The power lies within the words
The forgiveness opens up the heart to the deepest level of the soul
We have to face ourselves
to get to the other side
of the golden light <3

much love and healing light
