Naturally you want to release the intensity of whatever bothers you most, be it a relationship, a situation, or a habit. Often we flail against the “problem,” apply every strategy we can conjure, and seek help wherever we can. When nothing resolves the problem, release may come as the last resort. Yet how do you invite release?
Know every problem represents a soul level solution. Your soul lessons invite you to learn love and compassion. When you tell yourself you “should” have mastered this already, you block your learning. Plus you practice meanness toward yourself, not compassion. When you reframe the lesson as “learning compassion” instead of “overcoming this specific problem,” you can shift your focus. Imagine how good you’ll feel on the other side of this challenge. If you can envision the evolutionary leap you’ll take, you can more readily head in that direction.
You can’t be anywhere or anyone else. Fighting it doesn’t move you through it. Movement begins when you soften into the issue, returning yourself into the flow of life. Of course you have this particular problem and no wonder it feels hard! Invite the peace and release of acceptance. Give yourself the benefit of the doubt.
Once you complete a piece of soul work, you no longer worry whether you’re done or what on earth it’ll take to get there. This applies when clearing karma with other people but also when grappling with a difficult situation or persistent habit. The intensity level correlates with your internal clarity and freedom. Once the intensity eases, you’re free!
How do you detach and release? How do you accept yourself and your challenges?
