Take a moment and stop your thoughts in this very moment. Before coming to my blog post, where were your thoughts? Can you step back even further, maybe an hour ago, and remember what you were thinking? The reason I’m asking this question is fairly simple: if you can clearly follow your trail of thought, then you probably have a good grasp of the present. You are in control of your mind, your emotions, and your thinking. If you weren’t able to answer this question, then very likely you’re in a whirlwind of thought, with memories and stories flying past, distracting you from living fully in the present moment.
Our past, our regrets, and people and moments that we cannot forgive keep us from being able to let go. We can hold on to hurt for so long. So long, in fact, that we lose millions of precious moments and opportunities to feel joy, happiness, peace, and love. So why are we so tempted to hold on?
It’s time to let go. Here’s how.
I tell my clients all the time that their thinking CONTROLS their reality. Just read my book! I will tell you everything. You need to snap yourself back to awareness when you see your thoughts carrying you away with them. We all do this, too. We lie in bed, with thousands of worries causing us the inability to sleep. Make it a practice to stop yourself as often as you can and gain control of your compulsive thoughts. Take a look around, take a deep breath, take in what you see, feel, and hear, and remember that you are in control.
People who cultivate thankfulness are happier and healthier than those who don't. Look all around you and behold the majestic beauty of this earth, this life, of our consciousness. The fact that you are breathing is a blessing in itself. Count your blessing every day and never forget to give thanks.
Forgive others, forgive yourself. Forgive things that cause you pain. Forgive the people that have hurt you. Close your eyes and think of someone or something that still causes you pain. Repeat “I love you” over and over. Imagine yourself giving love to them, and seeing them for what they are: another person in pain, with the same worries, hopes, and dreams. We are all human. We suffer when we hold onto the past, so let it go and find some relief. Let go of the harsh thoughts.
