“Learn to let go that is the key to happiness”- Buddha
Release is simply the act of letting go. In every situation you can either take responsibility and attempt to cause it to happen, or you can let go. Neither option is better or worse. Every situation is different, and only you will know what is the right thing to do in each case. There are times when you will need to take responsibility of the progression of a relationship, and a times you will need to just let go and walk away, just as there are times you need to fight with your boss for what you believe and other times you need to release the situation to save your energy for more important battles. You learn the lesson of letting go when you begin to choose it as a conscious act rather than a passive means to hide from responsibility.
There will be times in your life when you will need to let go of certain self-beliefs that hold you back from creating your own reality.
Another emotion that often lurks in people’s mind is anger. They cling to their anger toward their parents for the way they were raised, or toward their spouse for disappointing them, or toward fate for presenting them with injustices. This anger can fester in their unconscious minds, blocking the flow of their natural power to create their lives. They are so focused on their negative feelings that they are blind to the power of forgiveness and release.
Sometimes negative memories can clutter your mind and take up the space needed in order to imagine and create a life based on what you want. It is unfortunate that “bad” things happen, but clinging to the psychic debris left behind can do even more damage than the actual event. People are able to overcome and release even the most heinous of experiences if they are willing. The human heart is remarkably resilient, and you will need to trust yours in order to release the memories that stagnate you.
Other times you will need to let go of the situations, like toxic relationship or a degrading job, so that you can create a better reality for yourself.
Regardless of what emotion or belief you have lingering in your unconscious that prevents you from creating your own reality, you can learn to release it by remembering two lessons you already learned : awareness and willingness. Once you become aware of what stands in your way and become willing to release it, you signal the universe/God that you are ready to manifest the life you were meant to live.
