Too much Baggage? You know it will cost…

Emotional Baggage

Liberate Yourself

Are you carrying around all the baggage from your life? Do you still keep the burdens of the past strapped onto your shoulders? If yes, why? Why are you hauling all of that extra luggage around? It’s slowing you down and crowding your space! Instead, do you want to raise your vibration and move forward with joy and lightness?

Seriously, I know it may seem that remembering and carrying all the hurts from the past protects you from future pain, but let’s look at this in more detail.

How free could you feel if you dropped all of your baggage? How quickly could you move without all of that extra weight? (A little hint: A LOT! I dropped some excess baggage recently that I didn’t even know I had and let me tell you- it felt absolutely amazing and freeing to finally let it go.) Carrying your past hurts and disappointments around closes you off, and it hinders you from opening up to new, wonderful experiences.

If you are a little pinched off because of all your baggage, fine. Don’t beat yourself up, but observe your burdens. Be aware of what you are holding on to, and just be with the question, “Can I let this go?” And then ask yourself, “can I afford not to let it go?” What opportunities are you missing out on because you are closed off? Are you missing your bus, so to speak, because you can’t run to catch it with all of your bags?

To begin releasing those bags, just start by simply saying to yourself, “I am releasing this. I am letting go of all of these old burdens. I am ready to let it go!” You don’t even need to know what the burdens are. You may be so used to carrying your baggage that you don’t even know it is there. When you decide to let go, be determined to move forward. You don’t need to think about it. Just decide to let it go and then do it.

When you begin releasing these bags, you will feel lighter and freer. I guarantee it.  Who doesn’t want that? Your heart will open. Don’t be afraid of it- it’s an amazing experience!

Now, emotions may come up for you to release. This is normal, and it can be a fairly easy process. Don’t resist it. When stuff comes up for you (in other words, these may be recurring patterns of emotions that are ready to go once and for all), don’t fight it or slap a smiley face over it. Feel it and then let it go. I’ll repeat that. Feel it, then let it go. Don’t think about it. Don’t tell the story over and over. When you simply feel without thinking it to death, this stuff will leave easily!

For now, just be aware when you are thinking too much. Learn to drop the endless mental dialogue and clear your mind. Practice letting go on a daily basis. Every morning, be determined to release old burdens and resistance. And remember- no story about the burdens. Do you want to feel lighter and freer? Are you ready to create the life of your dreams? Then check your baggage in.

Bag lady you gone hurt your back
Dragging all them bags like that
I guess nobody ever told you
All you must hold on to
Is you, is you, is you
