Let It Go
Change is one of the most difficult things for our heart and mind to accept. Maybe you’re on the brink of an ending, a hurt, or a loss. Or perhaps you experienced an ending in the past but are still carrying the pain within your heart and your mind.
Just as the shoreline doesn’t try to hold on to the sea, this card comes with encouragement to begin the process of letting go. Letting go is rarely something that happens in an instant. More often, it’s a process that can take days, weeks, months, or even years. The process always begins with a willingness and a wanting to be free of what once was.
Holding on to an emotion such as sorrow, anger, or disappointment is a normal part of the process, and in order to be free of it we must first feel it fully. Emotions are feelings in motion. They’re not meant to be stagnant. Water is the same. It wants to move and flow. When we allow our emotions to be there fully, they rarely last as long as they would do if we repressed them. When we avoid endings, for whatever reason, the symbolic waters within us can build up and become stagnant.
Card of the day from The Healing Waters Oracle
Call upon the waters within you to flow freely. Let the dammed walls of past hurts come tumbling down. Let the waters within you travel out into the world. Let them find their way past stones and riverbanks. New streams are calling you forth. Let the ocean call you home.
What are you willing to let go of?
