You may be asking yourself, “Letting go of what?” Letting go of the fears that are holding you back from living your life fully. Fear is an ever-present companion to the human experience but if you have lost a loved one, the fears multiply at least one hundred-fold. You probably have the fear of facing life without your loved one, the fear of not being able to survive your loss, the fear of something bad happening again to your family, the fear of not being understood, or the fear of being alone forever. The list goes on and on…
We all have fears and the root of those fears lies in any unkind words, ill-treatment, and untrue comments that you have received throughout your life that have become embedded in your psyche and accepted as true by you. As a result, your self-esteem, confidence, capacity to love yourself and self-image have suffered and a large number of fears have become your everyday companions.
Another thing is that some of those hurts or I might even say, most of those hurts were experienced by you when you were too young to discern that they had nothing to do with you and everything to do with the person who said or did them, so you simply stashed them inside and have not dealt with them to this day. And if you have experienced the loss of a loved one, you have had a traumatic experience and even more hurts and blows are inflicted on you if you feel misunderstood by others, suffer the loss of people who you thought were your friends, or feel judged by others because you are not grieving in a way that is acceptable to them.
It is easy to tell someone, “Just let go of your fears.” It’s easier said than done. To do it, you must get to the root of the fears which is the sum totality of all the hurtful and traumatic experiences you have had. It is hard work to unearth those experiences in order to let go of the fears caused by them, but the work is worthwhile because it will free you, in the end, to live life on your own terms.
What does living your life on your own terms mean? It means that you will be able to live your life intuitively instead of fearfully. And since losing a loved one usually adds fears to your life rather than take away fears, this is definitely something to listen to if you are grieving. How can you accomplish this? Well, let me first tell you about your heart. Your heart is the gateway to your intuition. As you do the work to bring up your hurts, your wounds up to your consciousness and take steps to heal them, something wonderful happens. You begin to tune-in to your intuitive abilities. How does that happen? Your third eye energy center which is what I call, the window to your intuition, gets a thick film over it that blocks you from your intuitive abilities.
That film has been created by all the wounds and hurts you have not dealt with (including the loss of a loved one) and have been carrying; the same wounds that affect your everyday life and fill your mind and heart with fear and anxiety. Therefore, the more you heal those wounds, the thinner the film over the third eye chakra becomes and the more access you have to your intuition until the time comes when the third eye is a shining, crystal clear window and you are able to live intuitively, leaving your fears and your anxiety behind.
You’ll now have the deepest knowing in the depths of your soul that all your needs are met, everything is going to be okay and you are not alone. And if you are grieving, living intuitively means that you will not only have a direct line to the divine, but you will also live feeling deeply connected to the loving energy of the person you lost because you will receive his or her messages and feel their presence in your life as well as recognize that your loved one wants you to give yourself permission to be happy and to continue your journey of growth called, life.
Living from an intuitive place is magical in that before any decision, you ask for clarity, for the right people, the right circumstances, and the right energy, and they are all given to you. It’s as if you have a direct line to heaven, to the universe, to the life you have always wanted to live. Wouldn’t you want to live fearlessly, intuitively?
