Don’t look back: Letting go of the past

Do you know what the best part of letting go is? That you’re making room for something more positive in your life.

It’s apart of human nature to dwell on the past from time to time BUT if you are a stage 5 clinger with your past, this potentially becomes unhealthy anchors that hold you from moving forward.

What ever you may have experienced in the past death, bad luck, people and places, these tips may help you let go and open the doors to a more positive moment:

1.Give it time: This isn’t the advice you think its going to be. We think you should give yourself sometime to dwell upon the past. Whatever the event allocate yourself just a small amount of time every day, where you give yourself permission. Day by day shorten that time or skip a day.

2.Why does it matter? Think about why you think you might be holding onto that experience? Analyse it – what can I do to live with this memory? Should you just accept it and move forward?

3.Eliminate: Never, ever use these words again – could, should and would.

4.Replay: There’s not point reliving and sharing the stories with others.

5.Focus: On the present, the now, things that make you happy and bring you joy, right now! If you do that, you’ll have less time to think about the past.

6.Forgive: You will probably not forget but forgive. You can forgive yourself too! Forgiveness is often the one thing that can get you out of pain and stubbornness, be the bigger person!

7.Find a hobby: This relates to the main goal of the post! Make space for the good things. Finding a hobby will help you fill the void or even push out what ever might be holding you back.

Don’t think you’re holding onto anything but you feel a sense of sadness or fear of reaching for what you want? It might be hidden so deep you don’t even know you’re still holding onto something. Reiki has the ability to bring so much to the surface, read about the techniques used in Reiki via out blog.
