This weekâ€™s Monday meditation is about letting go. There are always things we hold onto tightly. We might have ideas or habits or relationships that we are scared to let go of because we think they define who we are. Opinions and beliefs that we are so invested in that we canâ€™t see beyond them. Or we may simply have ways of thinking or doing things that we feel we canâ€™t change because we donâ€™t know any different.
From small choices or actions to deeply ingrained habits, there are always aspects of our lives that we can let go of. By recognizing â€“ and letting go of â€“ these behaviours, thought patterns, emotions, expectations and interactions that no longer serve us, we can adapt, change, and discover new perspectives.
Sometimes itâ€™s painful to let go, sometimes itâ€™s frustrating and difficult, but more often than not â€“ when the letting go has happened â€“ we feel a sense of freedom, ease and potential for positive growth.
This week, turn your thoughts to the idea of letting go. What do you feel is weighing you down, holding you back, or keeping you stuck? If you need a little help, hereâ€™s a mini guided meditation to get you started. Another activity that is extremely helpful is writing down daily things youâ€™d like to let go of.
Hereâ€™s to letting go. May it be a freeing kind of week.
