The Power of Letting Go

In today’s crazy world, many of us are being forced to let go of the things in our lives that provide us with comfort and stability. When people lose their jobs due to company layoffs, they need to let go of their sense of security. When they can no longer pay their mortgages, they need to let go of the comfort and safety their homes provide. It can be overwhelming and extremely stressful. However, no matter what the circumstances, we must learn to go on. We need to let go of the past and find a way to move forward in our lives; no matter how difficult the circumstances may seem. Of course there is always a transition period when we have to change our lives in such a drastic way. It’s normal to question why certain things happen to us and take some time to reflect about the life we have been living up until this point.

However, instead of dwelling on the things we cannot change, I think we need to focus on the questions What now? and Where do we go from here? When we are in the process of losing things that are near and dear to us, our first instinct is that we want to cling to the past.

When people die and leave the earthly plane, they need to let go of their earthly possessions as well as their physical bodies. They, too, go through a period of transition while settling into their new surroundings. For those souls who want to cling to the life they had here on the physical plane, they become “earthbound spirits.” If you’ve ever seen the show “Ghost Whisperer,” these are the spirits who refuse to go “into the light” until whatever earthly issue they had is resolved. It’s not a good place to be for a spirit to be as it puts them in a sort of “limbo”. They know they can’t go back to their physical form and be with their loved ones, yet they don’t feel ready yet to start their new life on the other side.

When we insist on clinging to the past, we also become “earthbound spirits” keeping our lives in limbo. Knowing we can’t go back to the way things were but refusing to allow ourselves to move forward. We become stuck in our self created world.

When the rug feels like it’s being pulled out from under us, we need to learn to change our perspective on things and change our expectations. Ultimately, if we refuse to let go, we never give ourselves the chance to get to a new place where it could be even better for us! When we let go of things, it’s not that we don’t care about those things anymore, it’s just that our lives are different now and we need to re-prioritize the things that are important to us.

Sometimes, when we are forced to do things we don’t want to do, it ends up being a better situation for us. We find out that we are really stronger than we thought we were and that we’ve grown a lot by going through difficult times. When we create an environment that supports where we are right now, it’s easier to put the past in perspective.

When I was in my 20’s, I lost my dad to lung cancer. At the time, I didn’t think I would ever get over the loss. However, as I came into my skills as a Medium, I have been able to communicate with him in a different way. It’s not the same as having him here in his physical form but it’s certainly wonderful to have access to him while he’s happily living in another dimension. I needed to change my perspective of how I wanted things to be. Given the fact that having his human form here was no longer an option, I came to accept the fact that I could now have a different type of relationship with him which is still satisfying on many levels.

We will all experience hardships and loss in this lifetime. That’s just part of the human experience. However, it’s how we view these situations that can make them easier or harder for us. If you can look at the “so called” losses as openings to new beginnings, it will be easier to take the bull by the horns and create a new life path for yourself.

Remember, you don’t want to be stuck in “never never land” like an earthbound spirit. Find your inner strength , let go of the past, and open yourself up to looking at your life from a new perspective. There are endless possibilities out there that are awaiting you! -Jana Hollingsworth
