Day 2: Release the Past to Deepen Your Awareness

Day 2 Release the Past to Deepen Your Awareness
"You leave old habits behind by starting out with the thought, 'I release the need for this in my life.’"
- Wayne Dyer

Week 1: Hope

Welcome to a new day and a new beginning. Today offers an opportunity to break from routine, to open your heart and mind to the natural flow of change. You can create change because you can recognize it as a precious opportunity to choose.

Yesterday, you made your resolution of hope. Today, you can make room for that hope to grow by releasing whatever no longer serves you.

Have you tried to control circumstances or people? Control will only postpone any experience you seek to avoid.

Control wastes life energy because your circumstances are only energetic reflections of your thoughts, feelings and beliefs. With control you will end up recreating the very thing you are trying to change. Releasing control will free you as well as the person, place or thing you are holding onto.

Relax and practice releasing, rather than controlling. Whatever you release can be transformed into something that helps you.

During this meditation and throughout the day, reflect on your past and release it so you can embrace the present. As you meditate, release the past and create a rich present. You can begin to trust that all is here for your higher good.

Day 2 Meditation: 

Wherever you are, first please sit down. You can meditate in any position, but it is best for your situation to be in a position that is both relaxed and alert.

To keep your back straight during meditation you may lean against a wall or pillow.

Pick up your LifeParticle Card (or find a digital version at ChangeYourEnergy.com); take 30 seconds to look at the LifeParticle Sun. This will help you shift your focus to what you want to achieve.

Now close your eyes; take a deep breath and slowly exhale until you empty out your lungs. Relax your shoulders and breathe like this 2 more times.

Keep your eyes closed and imagine yourself in your business, or the home you shared with your ex, or some environment strongly associated with your challenge. Imagine all the furniture, plants, or artwork in the space. Relax your body and see yourself in the center of this space.

Begin deep breathing again and with each exhale imagine something disappears from the room. Keep breathing and emptying the space around you for 2 minutes.

When you are done, shake your shoulders vigorously for 30 seconds to release any remaining tension. Do you feel lighter?

Now you can begin to feel free to release everything you know about your situation and get a fresh perspective.

Now say the weekly affirmation out loud. If possible, look at yourself in the mirror.
“In every day, in every way, I am changing and growing. I can choose to make it better!”

Try to meditate at the same time every day:

My mind is clear and focused. The past is something that I have learned from, but not something that controls me anymore. I feel a sense of peace. I am no longer that person because I grow and change everyday. Thank you!
