Monday Mantra:: I Can Choose to Let Go

Monday-Mantra-I choose to let go

Over the last week, we have been cleaning out our spare room.  As I was trudging through all the old sentimental stuff and all the not so sentimental stuff, I wondered – why do we hold on to so much stuff?

We keep things because we get used to having it around – It makes us feel comfortable.

We keep things because they remind us of someone – it makes us feel reminiscent or young.

We keep things because someone we love gave it to us – it makes us feel loved, appreciated, beautiful.

We keep things because it might come in handy one day – it makes us feel hopeful or inspired or safe.

We keep things because they might fit us again, some day – they make us feel excited about the future.

 

But these things, while they sit in a cupboard or under the stairs in the dark, only ever come out to the light when we go through a spring clean. They hold us back and they weigh us down, sometimes without us even knowing it. And often, that stuff is only hiding more stuff underneath it!

When we need space, we go through a spring clean. We bring out all those old things and throw out a few here and there. Then we hide all that stuff again until we need more space and so the process of bringing those objects out to the light for sorting begins yet again.

The same goes for our emotional wellbeing. We often hide our “stuff” at the back of the mind (sometimes so far back that it’s actually in the subconscious) and it’s only when we find ourselves overwhelmed, in pain or in crisis that we seek out those things in order to spring clean our thoughts and emotions for clarity of mind and when we do, we feel lighter, happier, more relaxed and sometimes more free. Life runs a little more smoothly. This is because our body is no longer holding onto it, it no longer needs to carry the weight of the past.

We can, however, forget that we have a choice in letting things go. It’s human nature to hold on to events, people or situations that no longer do us any good to hold on to for fear of being alone, out of work or unloved, just to name a few. That’s not to say that these fears or concerns aren’t legitimate and in fact, there are many instances when you need to ensure that items like an income for instance are catered for – they do require some thought.

Letting go of old clothes is one thing, but letting go of bigger things will likely take a few rounds of bringing them out of storage for sifting through, so please be patient with yourself. It took me three years to finally get up the courage to leave my secure, long-term employment to chase my dream of becoming a Kinesiologist. It was a classic case of Lather, Rinse, Repeat: I can choose to let go.

What can you start letting go of today?

Outworn clothes
Past Hurts
Old Flames
Fears
Limiting Beliefs

Lather, Rinse, Repeat: I can choose to let go.

Lining up down the street

When I first began at a new clinic, I expected and knew that I had a long line of clients waiting to see me at this new clinic. That’s what i’m here for. To help as many people as I can. So I knew that this clinic was where I was supposed to be. For weeks now, I have been a little frustrated because I could see a long line of people lining up outside the building waiting to see me at this clinic and yet I have only a few clients here and there.

It has only recently occurred to me that maybe i’m thinking of the wrong “people”. Let me explain.

I had a client the other week. They have never been to one of my clinics before and they were incidentally from interstate on business and just desperate to see a kinesiologist. So they booked in with me. Not an unusual occurrence at all except for the fact that for a few days leading up to that session, I had a woman who was hanging around me from the spirit world. The morning of the session, I tried a new tool that one of my kinesiologists had given me a few weeks prior to work out what it was this woman needed to say and to find out who she belonged to.

Fast forward to the session where this person was explaining that they felt like they had a group on the “other side”, on their side. That’s when I got the image of this woman and I knew she was here for them.

So I passed on the message. She was simply, sending love and reminding them that she was there and that they’d know by the hold on the shoulder. As it turned out – that hold on the shoulder was something the client had been feeling a lot lately.

What does this have to do with the people lining up to see me? Well, I think there might be a long line of people in the spirit world waiting to see me with their loved ones. So, I’m going to start honing my skills in that area so that when the spirit world starts orchestrating the clients, I can comfortably pass on the correct messages.

Monday Mantra:: I Choose To See The Bigger Picture

Monday-Mantra-See-the-bigger-picture

I choose to see the bigger picture.

I choose to see the bigger picture because it gives me a chance to choose a happier thought. It gives me the option to look at all of the elements involved before getting upset or angry about something.

I chose this mantra today because I realised this morning that not everyone sees the bigger picture. Some people only see the details of the ‘right then and there’. There is of course no right or wrong way, it’s entirely up to the individual’s perspective but the difference it can make in how you feel and the thoughts you choose is pretty amazing.

What brought this up this morning was a minor thing. A simple “hey, you forgot to get this from the supermarket” kind of remark. But I found myself thinking “but wait, I did the groceries, chopped vegetables and cooked for 3 hours yesterday so you have dinners for the week while I’m working late and all you can see is that I forgot one thing from the supermarket?”.

Where in life are you prone to seeing only the one detail in front of you? Where could you benefit from taking note of the bigger picture? Ask yourself:

1. Am I looking at this as an individual comment, event, incident? or
2. Am I looking at this in its entire context or bigger picture?

Choosing to see things in their context can often result in less stress for both yourself and any other people involved.

I choose to see the bigger picture.

As always, download and save the image to your phone, desktop or print and pin it somewhere and when you see it, say it and If you think someone else you know might benefit from this mantra, share it.
