DAILY TRANSFORMATIONAL NUGGETS FOR THE BODY, MIND, AND SPIRIT: 30 Days of Faith, Hope, Prayer, and Gratitude – Day 14 “Release and Let Go”
Today’s Body Connection: There comes a point in our transformation when we simply need to let go and let the Universe do its thing. When you have done all you can and you feel stuck, let go of the control. Let go of what you think you transformation needs to look like. Let go of the outcome and allow the blessing to surprise you. Yes, we set our goal weight, but we let go of how we will achieve it. There are so many ways to drop the inches. Yes, we want to be stronger, but strength-training comes in different packages. When we finish working out, there needs to be a symbolic death of the physical practice so that transformation can truly take place. In yoga, we call the hatha (movement) the practice, and the meditation the actual yoga. The shavasana, or corpse pose, is the symbolic death of all the work that has come before. The practice is over, let it go so that you may go out and live your transformation.
Meditative Thought: Affirmative Prayer Step 6 – Release: Once you have said the prayer, you must release and let it go. Release the prayer; allow God to be God. We hold on to our prayers because we don’t have the faith that they will come to fruition. As long as we hold on tight, the prayer can’t expand, it can’t breathe, it can’t grow. It goes no further than your mouth. Our prayers must fly into the cosmos. “I let go and I let God,” is a mantra that I use all the time. Release is the first step toward serenity. Turn your cares and worries over to God. Release is true freedom. It builds our faith. We begin to believe that God is in control.
Today’s Action Plan: Today, begin to release your prayer into the Universe so that God can be God. Journal your experiences. I would love to hear from you.
Affirmation: Just for this moment…just for this breath, I release and I let God. And so it is. Amen
