I read another wonderful article from Jennifer Hoffman and Archangel Uriel at http://www.urielheals.com that I want to share…
Let Go and Let God
One of my good friends always says ‘Let go and let God’ when he is involved in a situation that is beyond his ability to deal with. It’s his way of acknowledging that there is a point at which we have to let others learn their lessons in their own way and time and within their own power. How many times do we hold someone up energetically, see them in their best light, hold the highest intention for them and for their lives only to have them go right back to their old ways because they can’t learn and grow within our timelines and don’t heal when we force them or try to do the work for them.
In many situations we have to ‘let go and let God’ which is our way of admitting that we are not capable of altering the course of someone’s life.
Thinking that we can or should do this puts us in the precarious position of being the Source in someone’s life and if they are not listening to God by now, what makes us think they will listen to us? As we move through the end of 2011 we will have more opportunities to let go in this way because we will find that we cannot hold space for someone’s transformation while engaged in our own.
While we have been struggling with our own healing journey and feeling very stuck, the temptation to heal others while we’re waiting for our lives to change has given us the false impression that we have time and energy to spare. Now that things are starting to move (and they will by September),
new priorities are required because we can’t be the martyred healer for others and the master in our life at the same time. Someone has to take priority and while that must be us. We have to make that choice with a clear heart, knowing that when we let go God can take over.
We have been walking this healing journey for many lifetimes with our soul group, holding light and space, being the healer and healing and delaying our progress and movement. Now it’s time for us to let go and let God because everyone’s healing path is truly between them and God and we are not part of it except as an energetic bystander. Two things happen when we release others to their healing path – they have the motivation to work harder because their growth and healing are now their responsibility, and we have more time and energy for our own healing journey because our energy is not scattered and limited by what we are contributing to others’ lives.
