When we exhale, as in breathing, and allow everything to let go in the body, it releases all resistance, muscles relax, tension eases, we feel relaxed and at peace. However, to even notice our breathing, we have to be conscious, awake and away from our thoughts and mind.
This is what happens to us when we let go of the ego, the story, the mind and it’s repetitive negative thought patterns. We release not only tension in our body, but we also allow our soul to be, for our essence to shine. We let go of suffering, resistance, negative emotions, we free ourselves to be our true selves. We experience inner peace in the mind, body and soul.
Exhaling is something we do millions of times in a lifetime, each one an opportunity to let go, each one a chance to free ourselves and ready ourselves for new life in the next inhale of breath. Each unfolding moment a new breath, a new moment, a new opportunity to be life.
We cling on, and cling more, and cling on some more, and we hope that by resisting what is, that the outcome will change…like magic, we can alter the past!
It won’t and we can’t…it is always what it is now.
Our resistance to that creates negativity which fights against the reality of what has already happened, or most often, we fight what other people are doing, thinking etc. It causes us great pain, suffering, stress and boils over to affecting the people around us too. We want to control what we can not control, like trying to stop the waves of the ocean from coming. This very resistance only continues creating what we do not want.
If we let go and surrender to what is, accept, it will not change what has occurred or other people, but what it removes is our suffering and pain inside. Internally, we are then at peace, we accept the reality of what others are doing and we allow them to be and we accept the reality of what has already occurred and allow it to be. Then we transmit positive vibes, instead of negativity, and then the ‘magic’ occurs, we attract what we want, not continue to create what we don’t want.
When we let go and focus our positive energy on now, the real and only moment, then we can always achieve or affect anything right now. We are able to manifest what we want in this moment once we are free from resistance and clinging on to our mind and its story.
