Let it go

As much as we'd all like to believe that we're awakened souls who are finally getting it all right, we have to accept that the whole point of our existence is learning. And that means that we're not always getting it right. We are making mistakes and experiencing life at a rate of knots. It's okay to get things wrong. It's absolutely wonderful to recognise it when we do because that's when we sit back and internalise the lesson.

So as we approach the full moon in Scorpio, this is a great time to spend a moment assessing. Scorpio is all about death, rebirth and letting go. It's also about embracing the changes that come with those things.

I find that letting go of things is undervalued. We travel through life with this drive to accumulate not just things but experiences. Accumulating is fantastic but clearing out is even better. You see, when we accumulate those experiences we tend to hang on to the emotions that they engender in us. And dear gods! We're great at hanging on to things!

So we travel through life with this ever increasing burden of things that no longer serve a purpose for us. They no longer keep us safe or sane. We just keep them there because we are so used to the heaviness that we don't even notice it any more. How much easier would your life be if you didn't carry that baggage?

Take some time this week to be still and to consider what resentments, disappointments, sadness, anger or fear you're hanging onto. And then take a little bit more time and consciously release it. Those little things tend to hang around in our sub-conscious and they block all the good that we could be attracting. I'd say it's a good time to allow them to go.
