Meditations to Help You Learn to Let Go

Updated on October 9, 2016

Do Other People Make You Feel Guilty? Learn to Let Go of the Guilt


Letting Go of Sadness

A block to joy and love can be unresolved sadness from the past. Unfinished business doesn't just go away. It keeps repeating itself, until it gets your attention, until we feel it, deal with it, and heal it.

It's okay to cry when you need to cry. It's okay to feel the sadness that you have stored inside of you for so long. You can feel those feelings, and once you do, you will be released from those feelings.

Grief is a cleansing process. It's an acceptance process. It moves us from our past into the now.

God, as I move through this day, let me be open to my feelings. Today, help me know that I don't have to either force or repress my feelings. Help me trust that if I am open and available, the healing will happen naturally, in a manageable way.

Life is Full of Stress, Daily Meditation Can Help Reduce that Stress

Just Let Go

Stop trying so hard to control everything. It is not our job to control people, outcomes, circumstances, life. Maybe in the past we couldn't trust and just let things happen.

We can now.

The way your life is unfolding is good, just let it unfold. Ease up on yourself and let go. Stop trying to control everything, because you will just fail. Instead, let go and allow things to happen the way they are meant to happen.

Today, I will let go. I will stop trying to control everything. I will stop trying to make myself be better and accept myself as I am. Today I will let myself be me.

Don't Allow Negative Thoughts to Cloud Your Mind

Spending time in nature can be a very effective way to clear your mind and help you let go of stress, anxiety and fear.

Letting Go of Naivete

We can be caring people who trust others and still not let others hurt us. We don't need to allow others to walk all over us. We don't owe others anything, so we have the right to say no when someone needs us and we don't have the time or when we just don't feel like doing it!

Once we learn this, and once we accept this as reality we will have gained back our power.

How much are you willing to tolerate? How far will you let others push you? How little do your own feelings count? Where are your own limits? Your own boundaries? Do you have any? If not, things need to change.

Today, I will be open to new awareness about the areas where I need healthier boundaries. I will let go of the naïve assumption that others are always right and that I am always wrong. I will let go of the naïve idea that what you think and feel doesn't matter, because I know that it does.

Are You Trying to Control Time?

Letting Go of Confusion

Sometimes our path may not be clear. Often we suffer from a clouded mind, bogged down by confusion. We are unsure what step to take next, stuck at a crossroads in our own personal journey through life.

When this happens, we need to stop, ask for guidance, and take a step back to reflect on things. This is the moment to let go of fear. This is the moment to feel the confusion and chaos that is clouding your thought patterns, then just let it go.

The path will show itself to you. The next step will be revealed. You don't need to know right now. You will now at the right time. You need to trust that the answers will come when they are supposed to come. Be patient. Let go and trust.

Today, I will wait if the way is not clear. I will trust that out of the chaos will come clarity.

Letting Go of Timing

Just as we have no control over others, we have no control over time.

As much as we can try to micro-manage every little detail of our life, we can't change time- it is what it is.

We want things so badly- that job, that relationship, that raise, etc. We live waiting for future events to make us happy today.

We try to predict, circling dates on the calendar, trying to predict the future that only God knows.

When we can let go of the need to control time, we regain our ability to live in the moment.

Today, I will relax. I am being prepared. I can let go of timing and stop trying to manipulate outcomes that I have no control over. Good things will happen, as they are meant to happen. I will be patient and allow life to unfold naturally.

Letting Go of Worry

What if we knew without any doubt at all that everything we are worried about right in this moment will work out just fine?

What if we had a guarantee that the issues bothering us would simply work themselves out in their own time, as they are meant to work out?

What if we knew that even our worst fear would work out for the best?

What if we knew that everything was okay and that we didn't have to worry about anything? What would we do? We would finally be free to let go and enjoy our lives.

Today, I will know that I don't have to worry about anything. If I do choose to worry, I will do it with the understanding that it is my choice to worry, and that it is not necessary.
