Letting Go For Dear Life – By Lyna Jones

Oh sweet past. Oh bitter lessons.

Who would I be without you?

If anybody has experienced your powerful wrath, it is I.

But I say it isn’t so anymore. I am no longer to the effect of your neurotic


You and I are over.

The mental abuse. The slaps in the face. The acute humiliation. The shallow dams of tears. The descent into the Hells of belittlement.


My present life became extraordinary on the day that I surrendered my past and realized that it all had occurred for my personal benefit.

I grew up believing that my identity resolved around my chronically intoxicated mother. I was just a kid from the social services whose self-esteem was barren. I was dismissed as a daughter, as a loveable little girl, and as a soul yearning for unconditional acceptance.

I decided once and for all to rewrite the story of my past.

We often think that we the sum of our past, of our familial repertoire, of our errors and glorious achievements, of our illusory setbacks.

At any given moment, we can transmute our past into golden nuggets of strength to create a future we are psyched to live for.

At any given moment, we can clear space and free our heart from downgrading cycles that no longer serve our highest good. We are not our past. The infrastructure of our essence is beyond any personal history. It is a grandiose, untarnishable core whose divine potential has yet to fully shine forth from the twilight of our wounds.

Would you prefer to trust in your own strength or in the infinite field of possibilities that holds universes together?

I surrender my perception of my reality every single day as it becomes transmuted with love, service, mystical power, and serenity. Only then can I show up being the woman I capable of being.  Only can I get out of my own way to welcome into my life the next best step for my own self-actualization.

As my greatest teacher Marianne Williamson wrote in her best-seller, A Return To Love, “Faith is believing that the universe is on our side, and that the universe knows what it’s doing. Faith is a psychological awareness of an unfolding force for good, constantly at work in all dimensions. Our attempts to direct this force only interferes with it. Our willingness to relax into it allows it to work on our behalf.”

You were born to add value to this world. You were born to shine brightly into and out of lovelessness. You have a genius that resides within you, always, awaiting to be tapped into for the realization of your highest potential.

Letting go is an attitudinal muscle that grows stronger as we practice releasing our plan every single day.

The Universe is already imprinted with the perfect plan for your own self-actualization.

Your job is to steer clear of fear, doubts, and frantic manipulation of outcomes in order for the miracles to enter your reality.
