Embracing Change: The Power of Letting Go

Embracing Change_ The Power of Letting Go - trauma recovery


In the intricate dance of life, we often find ourselves holding onto things that no longer serve us. Whether it’s a situation, an object, a past opportunity, or even a person, the act of letting go can be a tumultuous journey filled with mixed emotions. However, as the full moon graces our skies, it brings with it the energy of release and the opportunity to free ourselves from what no longer aligns with our higher good.

The Energy of Letting Go:

The process of letting go is not always straightforward. We may resist, avoid, or ignore the emotions that surface. It’s natural to feel a range of emotions—from doubt and sadness to moments of rebellious joy. Yet, on the other side of this emotional spectrum lies clarity, growth, and the richness of life.

The Full Moon’s Gift:

The full moon, a celestial reminder of cycles and transformation, carries with it the energy of ‘letting go.’ This energy, present for three days before and after the full moon, prompts us to examine our lives and discern what no longer serves our well-being.

Recognizing Readiness:

Understanding when we are ready to let go can be challenging. However, a few cues might help guide us. If a particular situation or person is consistently in our face, if others are pointing out our attachment, or if we find ourselves making excuses repeatedly, it might be our higher self signaling readiness.

Reflection Questions:

To navigate this journey, consider reflecting on the following questions:

  1. What situation, object, past opportunity, or person has been prominent in your life recently?

  2. Which holds the most emotional charge for you right now?

  3. What learnings and growth has this element gifted you?

  4. What joys and self-awareness has it brought into your life?

  5. What will you miss once you part ways?

  6. What does your grief need?

Connecting with Your Inner Power:

Amidst the challenges of letting go, find solace in your inner power. Spend moments connecting with a place in your body that feels good and safe. Breathe into that goodness, knowing that this is the essence of you. You can return to this space anytime, reinforcing your ability to navigate challenges.

Committing to Letting Go:

Harness the energy of the full moon to commit to letting go. Acknowledge the challenges, feel the grief, and understand that you have the support and resources to choose yourself and your higher good.

Peeking into the Future:

Envision a future without the element you’re releasing. Explore this future through your senses—sight, sound, taste, touch, smell, and emotions. Allow this vision to guide and motivate you through the process.
