I've been dealing with some attachment issues this week. Through my work my guides have told me that letting go is a way of bringing new opportunities into my life. We hear this all the time because it is true. It isn't news to me. But when you're in the middle of deciding what to keep and what to let go...it isn't easy!!! I've gotten into the habit of letting go of the things I feel most clingy about...people, things, ideas. The stickier it feels, the more I want to test my ability to release it. Tonight I realized that this feeling of loss is actually a profound gift: I am willing to sacrifice. I am willing to lose things I love, in faith that even more amazing things will come into my life. I know as well as anyone how hard loss can be. The loss of loved ones can't compare to having to move out of a place you love, or giving up furniture that symbolizes your independence. But it all comes down to being willing to sacrifice the emotional and mental energy you give to the object of your thoughts. To truly let go, gives you the freedom to embrace something new. It also teaches you about your own strength and flexibility, and the vastness of your heart.
As the saying goes, you can't take it with you ;) so let it go!
