Lately I've been working with letting go. Letting go can mean different things to different people. You can let go of possessions. You can let go of people. You can let go of expectations. You can let go of the need to control people or situations. You get the idea.
In my case, I'm working on letting go of the need to know what, when, where, and why things are going to happen. It's so difficult for me. I know that I can't control everything in my life, but being human, I always want to try. I use the Serenity Prayer as my mantra. It goes:
Lord, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.
During one of my meditations this week, the guide I was working with asked me to step into a black hole that was in front of me...to step into an abyss. It was my choice to do it or not, but since I trusted her, I did as directed. I found myself suspended in dark nothingness. Then I heard the familiar voice of my teacher guide and felt her presence and the presence of other beings of light. She said, "We've got you. You were never alone and never will be alone." What a comfort.
I felt led to share this with you because I believe that this is true for EVERYONE! Whatever your belief system; God, angels, guides, gods, goddesses, ancestors - whatever - we are never alone. There is always help for us whether we're aware of it or not. They're just waiting for us to ask for their help and guidance.
PS. Week 2 of my non-resolutions complete and I'm still hanging in there.
