“When I let go of who I am, I become who I might be.” –Lao Tzu
Hello Spiritual Warriors! And welcome to another transformational week of learning to resist less so we can receive more!
Like the daily practice of meditation – the process of lessening our resistance includes surrendering, accepting, detaching, and then trusting that this moment is THE moment – bringing our awareness to the fluidity and evolutionary nature of life.
When we oppose what is flowing into us, we are saying NO to the universe. We are denying our most divine nature. When we resist, we suddenly put an end to infinite possibilities. And so of course it would follow that when we resist letting go, we are also denying the Universe. There are many lessons (and growing pains) along the journey of our life, which may contribute to the underlying challenge that makes us reluctant to trust and welcome the unknown. But we can shift that non-nourishing mindset very easily and quickly by beginning the processing of ALLOWING ourselves to receive what’s being offered to us right now.

But if your hand is tightly clenched in a fist holding onto something, it’s incapable of receiving. When you resist letting go, there is only one outcome that you are carving into the moment. Simply by opening yourself to another outcome rather than one, life expands, new possibilities arise, and your choices become liberating as fear and constriction drift away.
The key to living the dream life is being open to receive.
Miracles often appear when we least expect them…when we are innocent and vulnerable to the next moment. The magic of life surges into us when we remain open without expectation & are willing to listen without assuming that we know how the universe is supposed to unfold.
As the Seventh Dalai Lama wrote, “All things found in the world and beyond are illusions created by one’s own concepts. Grasping at them but further distorts perception. Give up grasping and see things as they are. “
So, this week, let’s give up grasping… let’s give up fear… let’s give up RESISTING… let’s truly practice LETTING GO! The best is yet to come.
In the meantime, I’ll see you in the gap!!
In one of my favorite movies — “The Shawshank Redemption” — wrongly accused Andy Dufresne (played by Tim Robbins) has a powerful conversation with fellow inmate Red Redding about his dream to escape to a sleepy seaside town in Mexico.
He tells Red that the beauty of the Pacific Ocean is that it has no memory, and that if he could just get to a warm place with no memory his life would be bliss.
He ends the conversation by saying: “It comes down to a simple choice … get busy living or get busy dying.” We all have the choice to to stay where we are and allow the non-nourishing to continue, or we can get busy living — sometimes this includes letting go of one dream to make room for the new dream!
I found this amazing place in Mexico that has warm healing waters and no memory. I go here every year to wash my brain, heal my body, cleanse my heart, and restore my soul.
