Letting Go of the Clutter

"Letting go of all that clutters your heart is not only cleansing, but essential to making room for all the exciting things yet to come." ~Mama Hen

Recently I had a minute where something that had weighed down my heart had lifted and dissipated out into the universe. It was a moment of "letting go". I am not sure what exactly triggered my ability to do this, but the result was incredibly cleansing. There are a few things sitting in my heart that have been weighing me down for years. Finding the strength to forgive others is essential. Although this is just one experience with letting go, the feeling it has left me with is an open heart. It has also helped me to realize just how much something from the past can take away from the present. It is all about learning to forgive others and accept that the past is something that is simply that: "the past". It is something we cannot change and something we all must learn from. I hope that in time I will have more cleansing moments and will be able to say that I am completely free from the people and scenarios that have weighed down my heart so heavily. For now I will be thankful for this glimpse of what "letting go" is truly about.

  3. So glad you experienced letting go and forgiveness! Having things sit in the heart weighing us down, like you said, takes away from the present. I hope you are doing well.

  4. It's always good to lighten your burden - there are things we can't change, we just have to learn to let go. ((hugs))

  5. I forgave my brother a couple years ago for a terrible wrong, and I felt that exact same freedom and lifting of spirit because of it. It's amazing how carrying a load can weigh so heavily.

  6. Oh, Mama Hen . . . I can relate to this post, in more ways than I can even begin to tell you. I think this year (when I turned 40), I began to do a lot of cleansing in my mind, in my soul, in my relationships, and in my life. It has been amazing. Truly. And I think as I released so many things I have held on for too long, I am only now able to see clearly. Does that make sense? I really get this post. And I am so proud of you for taking these steps. Love you, dear friend!
