Let Your Troubles Go
“Don’t worry, be happy!” Sounds simple, right? Considering that we have 1,000 thoughts per blink of the eye, maybe letting go of worries needs some special attention. Try this visualization from time to time to help you let go of whatever is weighing you down. Sit down with pen and paper and take a few deep breaths. Write down your present worries, concerns and fears. Don’t judge what you are writing, just let loose and write as much detail as you like, for as long as it takes.
When you feel you have emptied your worry vessel, sit back, take a few breaths, close your eyes and focus at your third eye or top of the head. See the beautiful Earth spinning, sailing through space. Expand the view and go beyond our solar system. Then, return to the Milky Way galaxy and back to Earth. Appreciate the amazing beauty, rhythm, flow and energy that you just witnessed. Then take your worry list, honor it and throw it away. Take another deep breath and give thanks for the opportunity to experience this wonderful universe, worry-free!
