Dear People,

It's no secret that a lot of us have problems letting go. Yet holding on to things, people or patterns that don't suit us anymore is a negative influence in our life. Mostly when letting go we focus on that negativity to 'convince' ourselves or we try to force ourselves to move on. Today I'm going to talk about a positive way to let go; through gratefulness.

Gratefulness in Letting go of things
The easiest way to let gratefulness in is if you want to let go of something that has served you for a long time, but isn't right for you any more. Maybe it's that favorite dress that you really should throw out or it's that necklace that you loved as a young teen but doesn't fit your style anymore. Or that hobby you used to love, but now don't really feel that connected too anymore.

If we would keep all the things that we feel sentimental about, our homes would overflow fast. Yes, it can be hard to let go of things, but by practicing gratefulness we can let go of them easier. If you still feel you can't let go of it after this exercise, you can also consider taking a photo or keep a small part as a memento.

Exercise
  1. Hold on to the thing you want to let go of
  2. You can touch, smell, hug the item while doing this exercise
  3. Replay in your mind all the beautiful memories you have with this item
  4. Sit quietly for a while with this item 
  5. Thank this item for the role it has played in  your life
  6. Put this item gently way - maybe in a pile to donate or to throw out
  7. Take a deep breath and say I release this item in gratitude
Gratefulness in Letting go by learning the lesson
Sometimes it's very hard to go of our negativity. We stay angry, we keep being in a tantrum because of 'unfairness' or we keep getting stuck in the same pattern that has negative consequences for us. It's pretty hard to let go of this as most of us just want the other person or the situation to change.

Since we have no control over that but we can deal with our own feelings, the healthy solution is to do that and let go. Letting go again, can be done on focusing on the emotions surrounding the situation, but we can also use our soul knowledge to learn the lesson and move on.

Exercise
  1. Ask your soul wisdom to shine a light on the situation
  2. Gently breath in and out
  3. Put your thoughts towards the situation
  4. Ask gently: "What is my lesson in this?"
  5. Listen to the answer and allow it's positive nature to help you grow
  6. Thank this situation for the role it played in your life
  7. Take a deep breath and say I release this situation in gratitude
If you don't get a positive answer, please keep on asking what the lesson is. A lesson is always positive, it's to help us grow as people and to show us our strengths and weaknesses. If you get a negative answer, it's often our ego that fills in the blanks or our emotions or fears.

Dear People,

Sensitivity is a two edged sword. Sometimes I have people in my practice who lament that they aren't sensitive enough: they miss the soft cues of their intuition, social circle and body and receive harsh wake up calls as a result. Other people lament that they are too sensitive and have trouble handling second hand items, social situations or have a lot of physical problems. Affirm away to help you reach the right amount of sensitivity or help you deal with the amount of sensitivity that you have.

I write my affirmations in different levels so you can see what resonates with you and what you want to work on. You might start with a lower level that resonates and then move your way up.

Pick and choose what works for you and affirm away (I recommend three times a day if you can manage it).

I can (easily) handle being sensitive to myself
I can (easily) handle being sensitive to others
I can (easily) handle being sensitive to emotions
I can (easily) handle being sensitive to energy
I can (easily) handle being sensitive
I welcome the right level of sensitivity
I (easily) deal with my level of sensitivity

I choose to be sensitive to my needs
I choose to be sensitive to my wants
I choose to be sensitive to my intuition
I choose to be sensitive to my guides
I choose to be sensitive to others
I choose to be sensitive to myself
I choose to be sensitive to the world
I choose to be sensitive to the earth
I choose to be sensitive to the environment

I choose to deal easily with the perceived downsides of being sensitive
I choose to see the positives in my sensitivity
I choose to make my sensitivity an asset in my life
