Almost a year ago I received my Letting Go Coaching Certification and wanted to help others enjoy the experience of this freeing process to enjoy every present moment. This process can help anyone who desires quality of life.
We start by adopting the perspective of our nervous system. You see, the body knows how to be healthy. If you spent hours each day resting and remaining calm and you led a peaceful life, your body would remain balanced and healthy. This is because the space of rest allows the body to express its most authentic inner energy, the power of homeostasis (inner balance).
Your nervous system makes decision on your behalf. If you put your hand on a hot stove, the information travels up your arm to the spinal cord. The spinal cord nerves process the information and sends a command to your arm to pull the hand back. All of this occurs without the brain. It is the nature of the spinal cord to make an immediate decision on your behalf, much faster than it registers in the brain.
Have you ever touched something hot, recoiled and wondered why you did that? Your brain is processing what your nervous system already knew. This is a bad idea for your well-being.
Have you ever noticed a bruise on your body and wondered where it came from? I was notorious for noticing them on my legs or hip, but couldn’t recall how or when it happened. The moment it happened, it was painful and my brain took assessment of the pain. Life is a lot like that. We take on the painful experience, assess and move on to the next thing. What happens to that painful experience? It leaves a bruise.
My goal as a Letting Go Coach is to fine tune your awareness of what the body is telling you in the present moment. Our bodies are designed to heal themselves given the proper care and attentiveness. Letting Go of past experiences allows the bruise to heal quickly and you will begin to realize, it was only a bruise. You are not broken.
