An aspect of transformation is Letting Go. It is a passive force, so its power is in the subtle realm where new form begins to build. As you Let Go of energy, focus, intentions, information, emotion, words and deeds that do not serve your highest good, you are utilizing the powerful force of nature that transforms. Because the impact of most of these are invisible at first, there is often not as much value placed on Letting Go.
Letting Go is often associated with loss, surrendering to domination, or giving up choice and creative abilities. However, the broader truth of Letting Go is that it generates a creative space, it frees up a great amount of soul-energy that liberates a level of life you didn’t know existed. It leads you to your True Self.
We must practice kindness to self in the process of letting go. To let go of past stories and beliefs that no longer serve us requires courage and discipline. We are all capable of transforming fear into love.
The religious word for letting go is forgiveness. Forgiveness is giving up your investment in and identification with your own painful story. This comes from a deep place of inner freedom and awareness of goodness-- God’s , your own and the goodness of the person you choose to forgive.
“Our whole spiritual transformation brings us to the point where we realize that in our own being, we are enough” --Ram Dass
Sometimes changes can be intense to the point of becoming chaotic. In physics, chaos is a temporary phase between one natural state of harmony and its transformation to a higher form.
When we let go of old ideas that keep fear alive and thriving, that is when the Truth of Love stops hiding behind judgment. We must open our hearts to release all that blocks our perception (worry, doubt, fear) of God working miracles in our lives. We allow others to learn through observation and choice as we maintain a powerful PEACE that transforms our experience of Life.
In letting go of the shore of stability, we go with the flow of life evolving into more connected and empowered spiritual beings. It is our creative responsibility to allow change to anchor our powerful love for life. To love powerfully is to transform, and this is the spiritual alchemy we all possess!
