Letting go

INSPIRED NOTE - When you're in pain, or hurt, or confused, or have some disturbance that tilts your sense of well being so you end up feeling a bit up side down, there's a need to off load, to release, to let go, to surrender, to speak it out, shout it out, move it out. So you may find yourself grabbing your nearest friend and dumping all your shit on them.

Anyone who knows me well knows I have a respect for words and language. It was drilled into me from quite an early age that we are master creators, our language and words have the ability to cast spells and make things happen. But there are some words, if not spoken, can literally choke you. The only way to get it off your chest is to say it out loud to a witness that includes yourself and at least one other person. Once you've heard yourself say it and they heard you say it, it begins to dissolve, to shift, to become something else. You have to be awake and astute to this process. Otherwise the other thing happens, where you bond over pain, where you tell the same story over and over, where you relive the experience again and again as if it was the first time, where you feel better in someones company because it happened to them too.

We are not meant to hold on to things, we are meant to allow energy to flow through us. We can be distracted and hold on to that heavy suitcase way too long because the emotion or pain was so very stark and deep. But the idea is to find ways, maybe many ways over a period of time to let it go. Let go, Let go, Let go. This was my message today. You don't have to do it all yourself. Let go, fill yourself with breath and with life.
