How do you release?

Yesterday after my posting I was asked “how do you release?”   Here is one way to release.

Releasing really comes down to you being aware (this is the first step! awareness that you are holding on to a way of being)  of how much holding on costs you emotionally, energetically and physically.   Holding on to all that taxes your wellbeing and  is not necessary!  Release that baggage and you may find yourself feeling unconstricted, lighter, freer and all with more energy.

So how do you let go?  Once you have established that you are holding on to a way of being ask your self what’s the story behind it?  Could be a story from your childhood or your teenage years.  Once you have a story in mind ask yourself who was there, present in that story.  When you have a person in mind reflect on what it was that was unfinished or unexpressed between you both.  Unexpressed emotion, feelings and or thoughts are the building blocks of resentment and anger – Resentment and anger are the glue that holds the behavior to you.

Release the Anger or resentment by being fully expressed to that person.  You do not have to do this with the other person, you can create a conversation in your mind with that person and imagine them interacting with you.  In your imaginary world have them respond to you as you are fully expressed with them.  When they respond to you imagine them responding not from their personality as you know it but rather from their heart personality or from a place of pure love, what would they say to you then?  This conversation can provide you with the fertile ground for understanding and forgiveness and or release.  Once they are released you are done on that level, you have let go and all the baggage that went with what you were holding on to will now be gone!

Then keep an open heart and see what you receive.

Give it a try and let me know how you do and what you receive or get in touch with any questions!   Email me at
