Letting Go 3 The path of Surrender

How To Let Go by Robert Kendall

“Letting Go is a simple method to reach great clarity and transcend your problems.
The way is not by finding the answers but by undoing the basis of the problem. The state reached by the great masters is available, the solutions are within us and easy to find.”
(Dr David Hawkins)

This article follows on from my two previous blogs on Letting Go – the path of surrender. Here I discuss how to let go our damaging, negative emotions and the stresses that accompany them.

You may use this practice  to reduce any distress or dysfunction, increase well-being and support a spiritual practice. It will take you on the path of Awakening. As you let go you may develop more joy, happiness, inner strength, clarity, inner peace, caring and insightful qualities within your own mind and nervous system. This will, in turn, begin to resolve or dissolve the difficulties that you might be experiencing  along your path, in your outer life with relationships, health and prosperity .

Research is now showing that long term chronic stress can shorten a person’s life by 9 to 14 years. It seems our genes have a direct link to our emotional brain.  Under stress genes that hold the patterns of disease will be switched on while the genes for immunity etc get suppressed. And when we are peaceful then the reverse occurs. Our genes hold the electrical DNA blueprint that life energy flows through.

Some stress is good for you, such as sports stress or getting out of the way of a Mac truck while crossing the road stress.
The problem is not with having stress, but how long we have had it. What do we do with all that emotional energy swirling around within our nervous system, brain and body parts? Continue reading

Letting Go – Part 2

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERALetting Go – part 2    How I am learning to surrender, let go, accept what is.
( please read part one before reading this blog.)

I finished the last blog describing how Dr Hawkins quit the hospital and went to a small town to recover. To recap, he had realised that as a knowledgeable psychiatrist he had made his thoughts more important than the feelings that accompanied them.

He had just pushed his feelings away from his conscious mind down into his body and subconscious where the negative energy built up over years into his 26 physical ailments. He realised that ignoring his feelings was slowly killing him.

We humans try to use our thinking processes to figure out our stressful, negative emotions. We think that our thoughts generate our painful feelings and I must say that for a long time I have too. But I tricked myself by identifying myself with my conscious logical mind, not the huge unconscious mind that has many different emotional frequencies vibrating through the body-mind.

I thought that the thinking mind was the same as the brain and that thoughts created emotions within the body. Now I am beginning to understand that my feelings are an energy and my brain does it’s best to make sense of that vibrational energy.

Dr Hawkins book has shown me a very important truth.That to ignore your negative feelings will eventually kill you or at least make you very sick. I was fearful of feeling my negative emotions and fearful of fully letting them go.What if they took over or swamped me sending me crazy? Of course all these thoughts needed to be let go of as well.

Letting Go – The Pathway to Surrender

Part 1.

The title of this blog is the same title of a book I am currently reading. The author is a famous psychiatrist, Dr David R. Hawkins, who most people would know as the author of Power versus Force. Dr Hawkins pasted away in 2012 but his legacy lives on in the amazing research he conducted over his life. This remarkable professor  was also an awakened Soul.
He used kinesiology – muscle testing to define what he called a ‘map of consciousness’. He was a psychiatrist who ran a large psychiatric hospital with a staff of 50 therapists with 2000 out patients. He would get up to a 1000 new patients a year. Patients come from every country. He would get the most severe cases, Many people who were brought to him were in his own words, ‘the most hopeless of the hopeless”
But in each patient he saw what would heal them. In his own words again, “Beneath the crippled appearance, there was the shinning essence of love and beauty, perhaps so obscured to ordinary vision that he or she had become totally unloved in this world.”

He recognised the fact that everyone needs to be loved. And as he help his patients connect to their own love within and see who they really were, they began to recover. Continue reading
