The Ultimate Letting Go Surprise

You let go of what!
As you look back on this past year what was your biggest letting go surprise? What did you let go that you had absolutely no idea would make it to your letting go list?
My biggest letting go surprise was selling my home of seventeen years. Although I had been giving some thought to downsizing for about three years, I resisted it because I kept imagining myself in a small condo or apartment surrounded by other people with no outside space. I love my space! So instead I held on cluttering my inner space with the energy of resistance and unwanted responsibility.
I remember the day I made the decision to let go. I was working in my office noticing some internal chaos. My office was even cluttered with paper and other stuff that day, too. I thought, "There's a message for me here." So I stopped and sat in quiet contemplation connecting in with this chaotic energy. I let it be what it was, no judgments, simply observing it. After awhile a very peaceful feeling came over me and I said out loud, "I need to sell the house." The next day I called my realtor.
The key to moving through the letting go process is finding that place of peace which comes when the chaos or discomfort is accepted, objectively observed and seen simply as a message. The state of peacefulness is the green light to go forward; it is says, "You'll be OK." A very wise woman I know once said, "Don't move (take action) until you feel it." Now I know what she meant.
My emotions are welling up as I write this, I am truly in awe of how well taken care of we are. There is a greater "order" constantly in play, Divine Order. When we stop fighting the reality of what is and let go Divine Order steps in opening the many possibilities that await us. Holding onto the pain or resisting what is keeps us from experiencing what we truly deserve.
Today I am blessed to be living in a beautiful little cottage in the country surrounded by woods and fields and gardens feeling free and happy and very, very grateful.
Please send me your letting go stories at [email protected] I'd love to read them!
Happy Thanksgiving!
Love To You,
