Write Your Life! - May 2016 - Week 3: RELEASING - Wisdom from Gloria Burgess

"What is the story you need to let go of so that you can step into the story that is waiting just for you?"       --Gloria Burgess, PhD, Jazz INC

When I did my own RELEASING meditation, what came to me was the word CONTROL. I need to let go of CONTROL over all aspects of my life. I need to "let go and let God."

This may sound crazy or even fundamentalist, but if you sit back and truly think about it what can we control in this life? Pretty much NOTHING. So why not admit that and live from that reality instead of spending so much time and effort trying to control that which I cannot control anyway?

The physical manifestation of RELEASING, for me, is taking a deep breath. When I take a really deep breath and let it all out in one long AH-H-H....I feel the sensation of letting go and it is such a relief.

I am no longer pretending that I have it all together, that I have all the answers, that I am in control. I am releasing control and it is such a relief.

After my meditation I asked God to take control of my life. To remind me constantly that I do not know what the next second will bring - not to mention tomorrow - and to lead me to do only that which is in my heart and mind right now.

Meditate. Breathe. Put one foot in front of the other and trust that I will be led wherever I need to go as long as I let go of the need to control exactly WHERE that is and exactly HOW it will happen.

This doesn't mean that I don't have hopes and dreams and preferences. Of course I do. And of course the Universe takes this into account, but I am not in control. And it is such a relief.
