With all our best intentions and rich resources, why is it so hard for some of us to slow down, simplify, and care for ourselves? Why do most clearing efforts fall short or peter out? At the end of the day part of the process of letting go is slowing down and simplifying to get to a space where we can reevaluate what is working for what isn’t and what we need to clear out – and simply let go in the course of taking better care of ourselves.
Slowing down doesn’t mean stopping or not continuing on out path or current route if that is what is working for us – if not rather adding a pause now and again to review and take stock of the ‘inventory in out life and in us’. Sometimes our drive to attain and succeed, and what we perceive to be success comes at a great cost to the soul. We are malnourished, if not starved, when it comes to compassionate self-acceptance, awareness, and self care; we maybe yearning for simplicity but struggle to find it, aching for balance but can’t sustain it. As we continue to move forward we may find it impossible to juggle it all or that we simply no longer want to balance so many moving parts, and so by taking a moment to clear the things and thoughts that have caused us to feel so overwhelmed in the first place actually puts us in a better place.
A combination of common knowledge, study and self enquiry can bring us to look at the following steps key in the process for clearing out:
- Clearing is an inside job that begins and ends with you – without addressing and healing the patterns that created all the stress and overwhelm you wont be able to clear it and that begins with you.
- Clearing is a change your mindset not just about letting things go – it’s a way of life – it’s about letting go of the things and thoughts that get in the way of realizing your true nature and best life for you.
Clearing starts with slowing down – old habits and resisting behaviors is easier when you slow down – taking a pause to see what is going really on not simply reacting to it, it requires awareness.
