The most common question I get asked is how do I let it go? How do I let that issue go and let it not interfere in my present? And the other question I get asked is how do I let go of my past relationship? And I'm going to answer them both here, because they both have the same answer. In fact, what I am about to share, relates to letting go of anything from your past. Hurt, pain, the loss of a loved one - anything.
How I speak to this right now, will be relating to being able to let your past go so it doesn't interfere with your present.
I've spoken a lot recently about choices. Make a choice to let it go. Making a decision to not feel that way. Yet a huge reality for most people and what I struggled with for many years, is being able to let stuff go.
I would get hurt. Someone would say something or do something and I would hold onto it for MONTHS. Years even. And I did. And it almost killed me. Literally.
Making a choice to let it go is yes the first step. And you can do that. But...
The Rose Bush Analogy
So many of society are walking around with closed Hearts, hunched shoulders and sad minds. And these closed Hearts?
They have either a shield of armour protecting them, or shields or concrete walls or something similar.
Because honey, most people don't know how to protect themselves from getting hurt again. (btw, spiritual protection and protecting your energy is a bit old school these days! But that's another post!)
You see, the only thing that is real is LOVE. So when you close your Heart due to past pain from relationship hurt, trauma or otherwise, you do so to protect yourself from getting hurt again right?
Well, it doesn't quite work like that....
You may think you are protecting yourself from getting hurt again, but what you are actually doing is shutting the LOVE out that is present right now in the right now babe!
Because all that is now is Love. Someone gifting you something, someone saying you look good today, someone offering to carry your bag...
Suicide and the Empty Heart
There has been alot about suicide coming to my awareness again recently, with celebrities and more and even though I have spoken to this in the past, I feel called to deeply share this here now.
The thing with suicide is that one simply has lost Life Purpose. The Heart is completely shut down, there is a huge barrier and wall around ones Heart. The Heart is deeply connected to your Life Purpose.
It's your desires, your joy, your fun, your LOVE - for self and others and life itself.
When you shut down your Heart, that's done to protect oneself from future pain, but when you do this, it also blocks out any future love and care to come IN and THAT feels very isolating. It creates a big cold cave.
Why does one shut down their Heart? Yes for protection - so you don't get hurt again right? This can stem from childhood or a relationship that wasn't very nice (or other things!)
What happens here, when you shut down your...
