The Art of Letting Go – by Danielle Hughes

As we begin to move into Winter, consider the great opportunity that is being presented to delve deeply within and achieve deep introspection.
Our natural inclination to withdraw and experience introspection flows with the changes of the seasons. This winter, gift yourself with the time and space to learn to let go.

Letting go of the past, habits, thought patterns or relationships is a difficult decision. It is also a difficult process because you have to be ready to commit. For many of us, it is hard to make a commitment of personal growth and do it alone. If you are ready to engage in the process, consider an accountability partner. Your accountability partner could be a friend, your angels or you can choose to work with a professional. Whatever you choose, know that they are there for moral support and to offer suggestions/direction. Lean on your accountability partner!
Know that making the decision to let go is a huge step in your personal and spiritual development. You are deciding to change your energy and frequency from a place of I can’t to a place of I can. That is a powerful step in and of itself. As you go through the journey, it is important to keep a record. Journal your experience so that you can help maintain perspective as well as be able to look back on your journey and see all your accomplishments. It is also important to give yourself space and forgiveness if you have a hiccup or notice repetitive behaviour- this is going to be a process and you need to give yourself time to make a complete shift.
Tools to Aid in Letting Go:

Allow forgiveness into your energy. Forgiveness is the key to 90% of spiritual growth and letting go of the past. Begin your day with an affirmation of Forgiveness. “ I allow myself to forgive” or create your own affirmation that is more specific “ I forgive myself and ______ for _______” Keep it simple and to the point.

danielleMeditate daily! Meditation helps you to connect with your Higher Self while clearing out mental clutter. You can meditate using guided recordings or simple mindfulness techniques. Anything can become a meditation, doing dishes or walking the dog. Meditation is a personal experience so allow yourself to create a flow that works for you.
Take frequent baths in epsom salts and add some lavender essential oil or pink grapefruit essential oil to help release and detox on all levels of self.
Remember, be kind and be gentle with yourself whenever you decide to make a change. Give it time, give it space and just breathe as you engage in the highest version of yourself!
