Amy Adams (multiple actress Oscar nominee) was asked in her most recent Hollywood Reporter Roundtable (I love these interviews- catch them on YouTube if you can!) what advice would she give herself growing up. To which she responded ‘Let it go!’
This phrase ties in nicely with one of my New Year’s Resolutions- to reach for ease as much and as often as possible. To be honest, it’s been a bit hit and miss as I can quite easily get wrapped up in what I’m doing and forget, but hey, I’m doing my best!
But that really is the advice du jour- just let it all go! No one and nothing is worth hanging onto any negative emotion for. Now, I’m not saying this is always easy nor would it be the first thing you could reach for. However, just to know and be aware that what you’re holding onto does not ultimately serve you, will place you in good stead when you are ready to clear it all up.
‘But he/she/they/it done me something wrong!’ I hear you cry. Yes, they may have been a bit of a tw*t towards you and done all sorts of atrocities but you don’t want to ‘let it go’ for their benefit. You want to ‘let it go’ for your benefit! This is the ultimate selfish act we encourage- making sure nothing and no one stops you from feeling good. Because you feeling good is what matters most. And this doesn’t mean putting a fake smile on and saying ‘It’s fine!’ It means, truly feeling good within about the situation, however that might play out for you.
Do your best to make peace with whatever happened and move on with your life and when you step into that good feeling space, nothing can stop you from claiming what is rightfully yours. Far too often, people use other people to blame and feel bad. The good thing is this contributes tremendous amounts to the Step 1 process, adding more and more good stuff to your Vortex. However, the kicker is that people use the ‘bad situations’ to focus upon and to keep them out of the Vortex and prevent them from claiming what is vibrationally theirs!
In other words, feel the negative emotion, let it give birth to new desires but at the same time, keep an eye to move towards your allowing space, so you can align with Step 3- your goodies! And then you’ll be thanking for doing that.
Bottom line, chillout, let it go and see what happens.
Happy letting go (and seeing along with Idina Menzel!) Lots of love, Nick Xxx
