Answer These 4 Questions to Know If It’s Time to Let Go

The wisdom of autumn is all about letting go – the trees have generated enough energy to bear fruit, seeds and now it’s time to shed their leaves that no longer serve them. And so, now is the ideal time to let go of what is no longer needed in your life. Yes, if you don’t need it, it can go. Wonderful, but where do you start? You’re probably asking yourself: “If I knew what I didn’t need in my life wouldn’t I have already moved on and let it go?” How can you know what you are ready to let go of?
Reflecting on careers, friends, commitments, hobbies, clothing and other possessions, or deeper beliefs, attitudes and behaviors, ask yourself these questions to determine if it is something you can let go of this autumn:
1) Does it go against my personal values?
If you’ve experienced personal growth recently, meditating and practicing yoga, or even deep spiritual healing you are a different person. It’s natural to shift in your value system and point of view. If it doesn’t line up, let it go.
2) Do I have to justify, explain and rationalize it?
The more you have to make excuses for something in your life, the more likely it is time to just let it go. If something is good for you, it will just make sense on it’s own without the deliberation or defenses. Deep down you know what works and what doesn’t, so listen to your gut.
3) Am I grateful?
If you have a hard time being thankful for it, then it’s time to move on. The ability to be appreciative and expressed honest gratitude is a practice in itself, but forcing yourself to believe you’re grateful is a sure sign that something is not for your greatest good.
4) Do I feel stuck with it?
Going through the motions and feeling stuck in a rut is one of the worst feelings in the world. It is exactly the wrong kind of deja vu. An inspiring life filled with vitality is equated with healthy growth – also known as change! If you’re dissatisfied with any part of your current life, then it is time to start letting go and making changes.
Even with the best intentions, sometimes we all need help letting go. Aspiring for a better quality of life doesn’t have to be a solo job. You are not alone, and that is exactly what my practice is all about. Let me help you to release what is no longer serving your greatest good.
