Three years ago, if you had told me that I would be a better person by taking a break, I would have rolled my eyes. I also probably would have remarked that the only thing I would become a better person was by taking action to get my goals. I would stressed out that I deserved to take my vacation every three months and had the lifestyle I lived because I was doing my homework and working real hard.
But I went through a particularly challenging time in my life, three years ago. That event forced me to take a break. And that was one of the most compelling breakthroughs I experienced. When I simply stopped in this moment, the presence awareness that I am would be more self-obvious to itself. And that opens the field of infinite happiness, peace, and joy that is already right here and now.
I DISCOVERED TAKING A BREAK TO BE THE TOOL FOR LOVING YOURSELF
Many of us are struggling with how to take a break with ease. We live in a world that believes that it’s always necessary to take action, rushing through this moment in order to get to the next. We are busy seeking, striving, pushing, pulling, trying to fix or change, or just looking away from the truth of what we are. What have we done to ourselves?
One of the simplest and most direct ways of interrupting this pattern is to simply stop. That’s right — just stop. Taking a break, a pause, a stop, is an option for us to step back, get in touch with ourself, and remind us what our passion is.
Part of my mission in my business is to have the life that I love. It means to make more space for living real life. I enjoy simplicity, but I had a very active mind filled with creative ideas. And they didn’t always serve my business well. So, as much as I love to live in peace, there was too much going on.
In that sense, I have assessed what was and wasn’t working for me. I had decided to take a break from some businesses for a year to simplify things in my business a little bit. It’s all part of a significant move to grow my business. As a result, I had to consciously look at things that I was doing – yes, things that I had added with excitement and expectations – and then let them go because they don’t serve me anymore to move forward.
WITH BREAKDOWNS COMES CLARITY
While I was distant and trying to figure myself out, the only thing I was still doing is helping and coaching people into releasing. It is something that I can get really motivated by; excited about; and inspired by.
My teacher, Lester Levenson, used to say:
“The fastest ticket to Freedom is helping another be free.” – Lester Levenson
As I help others release, I release too, automatically, on a very deep level, without my conscious mind needing to be involved. That’s one of the reasons we in The Sedona Method community release with partners during all of our retreats—it is always very powerful and compelling for both partners.
I’m so thankful for letting go…, for breaking down, and for being able to be completely transparent with you…. With all of this, it is so much more clear what my purpose is and that my friends, is to help you successfully achieve your heart’s desire!
Thomas Fuller says it best:
“It is always darkest just before the Day dawneth.” – Thomas Fuller
My friend, based on my own experience, when we feel we are not making progress, we can encourage ourselves to take a moment to rest. We can release and let go more, meditate, surrender to the power that is the way, feed ourselves well, and get extra sleep. And then pull yourself back up and give it another shot.
IF YOU WANT TO LEARN TO LOVE YOURSELF BEGIN WORKING WITH LETTING GO METHOD
Letting go is a powerful, unique, and very practical tool that will dramatically improve the quality of your life. It’s a part of healing I’ve done. I’m still cocooning a little bit, but I am ready to come back to help more people to have the life they want. I feel like I just want to dive into more creative projects.
If your life feels overwhelmed, ask yourself:
- Is this heavy or light?
- Am I having fun doing this, or am I just doing it to have approval from someone else?
- Do I sense a feeling of false security by doing this?
Finally, if you’re still struggling and you’re new to this, please contact me, and I will give you a free releasing session. No obligation. It’s my commitment to the field of releasing. We will focus on clearing some of your own core holdbacks and freeing yourself to achieve even your most ambitious goals. It is my gift to you.
