A Lesson In Letting Go

letting-go-heart-balloonHere is an exercise to do if you have any balloons left after that party.

Sit Lotus style on the floor and take a few deep, cleansing breaths. Let your mind and body relax. You want to listen to what is going on inside.

Do you have something causing you stress, worry, discontentment? Give it a name, grab a balloon and a Sharpie. It may be a person or just a feeling you need to let go of. Whatever it is for you, write it on the balloon. Label as many as needed, gather them up and take them outside.

Stand in a peaceful stance, somewhere quiet and unobstructed by trees if possible. Imagine the word on one of your balloons. Lifting it above your head, allow the image to fill you as you take a deep breath in, and as you exhale, let go of the balloon. Repeat with every balloon until there are no more. You should feel lighter, more at ease from within. This exercise enables you to Let Go of what’s bringing you down. Enjoy!
