Are You Having A Hard Time Letting Go?
I saw a photograph on the internet about a year ago and it left a deep impression. So much so, that I still think about it to this day.
The bike rider in the photo had stopped riding his bike and was standing in front of a make shift wall. The wall was constructed of several black panels of material measuring approximately 8 feet tall by 4 feet wide and the panels were hanging side by side. They were securely attached at the top to a metal frame by oodles of silver rivets and wire.
Every inch of the 4 black panels, which filled the width of the photograph, was covered with chalk graffiti. I began reading the words which included things like “ego”, “success”, “failure”, “not letting go”, “learning to love”….
I had never seen a wall like this before and I felt my eyes drifting to the wooden sign at the top of the black panels: “YOUR FEARS ERASED HERE DAILY”
I got goose bumps as my mind started wandering and I mentally transported myself and envisioned that I was standing in front of that black wall, chalk in hand, writing my biggest fears on the wall.
I then visualized myself stepping back and waiting a few minutes as the words slowly began to fade until I could no longer see them. Were they really gone forever?
I stood there for a few more minutes watching the wall and they never reappeared. I took a short walk and came back - still not there!
When I thought about that visualization and that black wall, I wondered...What if I could scribble my fears on a wall every day and slowly watch them disappear.
My mind started to wander, thinking of the possibilities.
Then it hit me – we DO have a wall and it is called GOD!
I AM supposed to hand over all my fears, worries, concerns and doubts to him every day.
I AM supposed to let go and walk in the faith that my fears will be erased.
So why is that so difficult for most of us? Why do we allow ourselves to live in fear and to be filled with worry and panic?
Maybe it’s because we’re afraid to trust? We want to actually see the proof; actually watch the fears disappear as I did that day watching the fears disappear from the wall. Because in doing so, it solidifies the process and makes it seem more real.
Today, I have promised myself that I will work on the process of trusting in God, letting go of my fears and walking in faith without looking back for any proof.
If you are like me and need help easing the process of letting go and trusting in GOD or a higher power, I have written a tapping script that you may find useful.
Remember to change the words to fit your personal situation so it resonates with you!
