The Power of Letting Go: How to drop everything thatÂ’s holding you back (Paperback)
The Power of Letting Go brings together a number of key principles that come up for anyone who is on the journey of self-enquiry and development. At some point, the choice becomes clear, whether to hold on or let go.
For some, it's easy, just do it, f**k it.
For many others, there are multiple layers and obstacles that have built up through one's life so far. Expectations, fear of uncertainty, well-worn inhibitive thought patterns, lack of trust, lack of acceptance, old trauma and hurt. Despite all this, there is a spark, a glimmer of hope that brightens at the thought of letting go and going with the flow, at following one's instincts and intuition rather than constantly second-guessing the outcome, at letting go of expectations and enjoying what is. This book combines both the why and the how to let go, with excellent practices that help convert the desire into action.
There are four stages to letting go:
- Be Present and Enjoy Each Moment
- Let Go of the Thoughts that Keep You Stuck
- Let Go of the Pain that Runs Your Life
- Surrender and Tune into Something Far More Intelligent than Your Brain
