Webinar: The Letting Go Process

We definitely can make this whole letting go thing a bigger problem than it has to be. As such, it's easy to over-complicate the process of letting go, which is actually a natural one. Every day, we have thousands of little experiences that we process effortlessly. It's effortless because we don't choose to make these experiences into problems or part of our overall "story" of who we think we are. Obviously, there are traumatic things that have happened to some people, but a lot of the rest of letting go is much simpler than we think it is.

To help you along, I wrote this spirituality blog post which is entitled:

Identify, Accept, Embrace, and Let Go

I encourage you to read it before coming to this webinar. It'll help you to understand what I'm talking about, and I'm going to use the above four steps as the framework for letting go.

Letting Go Webinar Full Description

Lots of people find letting go to be one of the hardest things in the world to do. But really, we are a people who have learned how to be excessively attached to tons of stuff--relationships, emotions, pain, things, and more. Thus, the idea of letting go runs counter to a lot of social conditioning, and part of learning to let go will involve noticing how socially-conditioned you are to hold on.

Below are the four steps that I'll talk about along with some of their contrary aspects:

  • Identify. The opposite is typically ignorance. This is a fundamental light and dark paradigm. In the light, we can see things. Where we look and place our awareness is that light. Where we don't look, the darkness is there in the absence of our light, and we consequently can't see and don't know things about ourselves.
  • Accept. The reverse is denial.
  • Embrace. Depending on the issue, the reverse can be avoidance. 
  • Let Go. Holding on and attachment are the opposites here, and we often do this with both "positive" and "negative" experiences. Those two words are in quotes because they're often completely subjective terms.
