Holding on to the past is energetically heavy and can hurt you in the long run. Here are 5 steps to release the past and the pain.
Are you haunted by past mistakes, trapped in guilt and regret? The chains of “should have,” “must have,” and “if only” can hinder your present joy and future creation. I know I have.
Did you know your face and body reflect the weight of dwelling on the past or worrying about the future?
We all know the past is unchangeable, but its lessons are invaluable. Holding onto past burdens can strain your relationships, hinder opportunities, and distract you from living in the present. Liberating yourself from the trauma, the pain, even unhealthy relationships, regrets, and limiting beliefs opens the door to joy, calm, and a peaceful mind.
Here are 5 steps to guide you toward appreciating and focusing on your life today:
Reflect on past pain, identify its impact on your present, and assess its usefulness.
- How does “it” that past pain affect you today?
- How does it make you happy or unhappy?
- Does it cause current problems, affect your happiness, or hinder your dreams?
If it no longer serves you, are you willing to declare, “I no longer need this pain. It belongs in the past.”
With just a few sessions of hypnotherapy, you can get to ‘see’ the old memory without its emotional connection to your present. We do this so you know the past pain no longer has a hold over your mind and body and can no longer affect you emotionally, mentally, or physically. You can Be FREE of “it”
Acknowledge that the past is history. Carrying anger, hurt, bitterness, resentment, and guilt is a choice. Emotional weight can be heavier than physical weight – choose to release it.
Gratitude for past experiences, especially the challenging ones, releases old hurts. Reflect on your growth, lessons learned, and how those experiences shaped you.
What did you learn? How have those experiences shaped you?
Instead of thinking no good can come out of something so bad, take a moment and review where you are now. Without these experiences, you would not be who you are today!
