Perhaps the hardest thing to do, as humans, is the practice of letting go, not because we are consciously attached to ideas, relationships, places, or just things, but because we are unconsciously attached to ideas, relationships, places or things. So, how do we let go of things that we are both aware and unaware of?
There are many ways to learn how to let go, but I will put forward the fastest, easiest way to do this. The easiest way to learn to let go is simply by saying “I want to let go”.
Here are some other ways to learn to let go: meditate, connect with your breath, read a book on letting go, exercise, practice yoga, go to a seminar, follow a teacher, exercising a “let go”practice, etc. As you can see, the simplest and most effective way of letting go is the simple sentence “I want to let go”.
So, if this makes sense to you, this is how you would approach this technique. Whenever you feel the need to let go, just say “I want to let go”. If you run into someone you no longer vibrates with you, ask to let go. If you are in a situation that is stressing you, ask to let go. If you are in a relationship that is not working out for you, ask to let go. If you have a commitment that only brings negative feelings, ask to let go. Apply letting go to anything and everything that does not resonate with you. Just let go.
If you feel that you are very controlling, or you find yourself in situations that stress you very often, you may want to make letting go a very conscious part of you daily routine. In this case, you will wake up saying “I want to let go”, and you will repeat this many times during the day, for example at lunch time, when you get in your car, when you are back home, when you eat dinner, before you go to bed.
But remember, this practice is to help you grow. Not to make you irresponsible. You choose the path you are willing to follow, and the Universe loves you all the same, but you must choose wisely. Always.
