When We Are Unable To Let Go

Updated: Feb 25

When we work with deeper set patterns or wounds sometimes its not so easy to just let go and this can be extremely frustrating. We may have been able to let go of certain layers of the issue but it may be more like peeling an onion were the issue keeps bouncing back up again and again. The core of the issue is never really cleared.

When we come upon these sort of "never-ending" blockages I found that the best way to approach them is deep acceptance. Its really the only way. We have to accept that we are where we are and stop trying to change it. We just need to let go of the need to let go.

So how do we do this?

We simple allow ourselves to be where we are. We become aware of all need and patterns to change where we are and simple observe them. You do this by simply stepping back and watching your thoughts, feeling your feelings and let it be. Just let it be. Allow yourself to feel and witness everything that you are feeling. Be kind with yourself and release all judgements of where you should be at this time and that you “should” have worked through this by now or that you should be dealing with this better or whatever it is that’s coming up.

Just let it be.

You can breathe in to that area of discomfort and you may just simple sit with that area of discomfort within. Just let it be.
