Letting Go

I have just been on a three day workshop learning bout Himalayan Shamanism. It was a wonderful workshop and I learnt a lot of things. One of the things we did was group healing, which I wanted to share a bit about with you.

We drummed and used our rattles, we connected to each of the elements, Earth, Air, Fire, Water and Spirit. Letting go of what no longer serves us, asking for help and healing with this. We connected to our Mother the Earth, connected to our Crealettt goootor, to our Ancestors.

My intention was to let go of what no longer serves me between people I have connected with in my past, where they were a part of my life but there was pain and hurt there with them. I wanted to let go of what no longer serves me and only keep the love and the
lessons. I am pleased to say I did exactly this, I feel at peace and can focus on the positive things now. When the ceremony was finished, I wanted to write up my experience. While I was writing, I had a flood of words come out from me on to the paper. I was not thinking, it just flowed. I want to share this with you….

It does not matter what they think, it is their problem. It is a lesson.

You may not know why people do certain things but you must let go of it, to move on, to re-balance, to be at peace and harmony. You also do not have to explain yourself to anyone. They may also not understand, but once again that is their problem.

It does not matter, you need to let go and be at peace and balance. Let go of anger/frustration. People come and go. Even though you may think they are part of your life forever (family), this may not be so. You do not need to keep them in your life just because they think you are ”family” and you have to move on from it but stay with them. It is a choice to keep them in your life or to let go. Do what feels right to you. Even though you may think keeping them in your life is better, just because they have been a significant part of it, doesn’t mean you need to. Do not ”think” what is the right thing to do . Feel and let go. Let go of what no longer serves you. You can forgive and let go and let them go from your life. You do not have to forgive and keep them in your life. They may not understand it but it does not matter. That is their issue to deal with not yours. Let them think what they like, spread whatever they want to others. It does not matter. Stay centered, stay balanced and move on. You do the work for you and no one else. You cant do the work for anyone else. They have to do it for themselves. People will have different opinions.

Follow your heart and you will not go wrong. Some may disagree with you but it is your life, not theirs. As long as it harms none, do what you will. This does not mean people may not hurt because of what you may do. But it is their understanding of what you do, their feelings. Their feelings are real and are not wrong as it is their understanding of a situation etc. But this is not your fault. Only they can work through their issues. Nothing is wrong or right. Only how you perceive it. It is your job to work through your own issues and no-one elses. Honour your feelings and respect others. But do not take on the burden or take on other peoples feelings. You are not to blame and they are not to blame. It is all how everyone deals with what happens in their own lives. You have the choice how to deal with a situation in your life. As does everyone else. People can not help the way they feel, but they do have a choice of how they deal with their feelings and moving on with situations. They may be hard and you should feel, experience the feeling. They are real, but there comes a time when you must deal and release. Otherwise you will continue to hurt, continue to go on the way you have always done.

To move on is a great thing. To heal and learn. To become who you are, to know who you are and to live happily. To live at peace and harmony.

You have the power. Only you. Love yourself enough to let go, move on and have a better life.

This may resonate with you in some way. We all have issues in our lives, some big, some
small. They are all significant though. They all can cause hurt and problems in our lives. What we must do is recognise them, realise that we can heal them and move on to live a happier life.

Cleansing with Sage

From time to time we all need to cleanse ourselves of negativity. Now many people probably don’t do this, but I try to do it regularly.  Just like we all clean ourselves with a shower or bath, we should really try to cleanse negativity away too. We pick this up from the environment, people we have been around or TV and we probably don’t even know it. We feel sluggish, negative, down, in a bad smudging 2mood and this all can come from these things. People can drain you, if they are constantly moaning or negative towards you, you may feel you start to feel all these things and it can get you down. So we need to really try and cleanse our minds, bodies, spirits and auras regularly, to help keep positive. There are various ways of doing this such as visualisations when showering or bathing, meditation, but the way I do this and the way I really like is using sage.

The ritual burning of sage is most commonly known from Native Americans, but many other cultures use it as well. Sage is very healing and calming and makes you feel at peace. I use White Californian Sage but you can use other types.  Use what you prefer or mix it up a little, whatever you choose is right for you and will do the job! Many people may do this different ways, but this is how I cleanse myself and my rooms. You can use this as a guide and then adapt how you see fit or what feels right for you. There is no ”right” way.

To start with, ground yourself. You can do this by closing your eyes and breathing in deeply and as you exhale, imagine roots growing down from your feet deep into the ground. Breath deeply and visualise this a couple of times. Breath in deeply and imagine gold light or whatever colour that comes to you coming up the roots into your feet and up your entire body exploding from the top of your head and tumbling down you. Then with the next in breath imagine a white light coming down from above into your head and go through you, through your feet deep into the ground. You are now grounded.

smudgingTake  your sage and light it. Blow out the flame so it is smoking (When burning the sage, make sure it is in a heat proof dish). Ask Grandfather Sage to cleanse you of all negativity, mind, body and spirit. With your hand or large feather, wave the smoke over you. Go from your feet upwards, making sure it covers you and your aura around you. Doing the best you can. Breathing in the wonderful scent as well. You should feel a deep relief and calming feeling once done. Thank Grandfather Sage.

Once you have cleansed yourself, you can cleanse your home. Ask Grandfather Sage to cleanse your home from all negativity. Then just wave the smoke around the room, up and down, getting into corners. Once you are done, thank Grandfather Sage.

As I said you do not have to do it like this, but it gives you a starting point if you haven’t done it before or just want a little guidance. I hope you find it useful and I hope you do start to enjoy the wonderful healing and cleansing power of Sage.

Happy Cleansing!
