Can we change the way we act in the present by relinquishing the hold the past has on us?

The way we think and the ideas we express may be rooted in our emotional past, which could make it difficult for us to approach things objectively. While it is normal for our past to influence the way we view the world, perhaps we should reflect on how our opinions can colour our interactions with others.

For example, think about where our ideas of those past events, maybe someone hurt you, and this hurt has triggered a response in the present moment. It colours our thinking, and we judge that event by how our emotions made us feel.

Although we may never fully let go of past events, once we understand the patterns we currently have that have been formed by past events and beliefs, we can work with greater awareness to change them.

This will help us see the larger picture of an issue or our interactions and make them less biased, for the more we learn to let go, the more open to recognizing the way our past has molded us today and make living in the present much more rewarding and precious.

Learning to Let go is hard, when sometimes that’s all we have to hang onto.

But letting go leaves room for growth. Letting go of the past, and trying to forgive helps us move forward.

For I have found hanging onto the past only embitters and invites regret and sorrow.

Know that what has occurred in the past has been to help shape our future. And acknowledge that fact. Once you acknowledge it and let go, you will more than likely find peace and will no longer be trapped in the circle of the past repeating its self.

I now ask my self more and more, what do I need to learn from this or that lesson. And now try to laugh through them. Putting a different energy around difficult moments helps me through them.

We all have difficulties in letting go, especially of loved ones. And it’s doubly hard when those whom we love do not feel the same.

Letting go doesn’t always mean having nothing more to do with people or difficult situations, but just releasing them within your own mind helps us to heal. As stated previously about our cording attachments that pull and drain at each other. Cutting the cords will help both parties move on.

If you have any past issues, why not try this exercise. Think about the hurt that you are holding onto and visualise a large balloon. See that emotion and put that memory within in the balloon and then say, "I release this from my past." And watch the balloon float high up in the sky out into the Universe. Ask your Angels to deal with it as you release it. Thanking them as you do.

Seeing how your past influences your present could make your interactions more balanced and fair-minded.


Let Go ……..and feel free.

    I fully agree with you Dream. What we all need most is forgiving eachother. Unlike what some people think of forgiveness, Forgivness is a sign of Power, not all people are able to forgive. When I forgive, I purify my within with no hard feelings to remember every now and again when recalling any memory of that person. It`s such a great attibute!!!
    Thank you Dream for writing about this fantastic subject.

    This has struck a cord with me Dreamwalker, I had once realised I had issues with my past and so I decided to look at my life and write them down. I found I was starting with memories from my early childhood and what I thought would be a few pages ended with being a biography that took two years to complete. I could see a definite pattern to events that had happened and I am now able to recognise the triggers of emotions and forgive those people that caused them. I think every one should try it, it can be such fun writing down ones life.

    Hi Dreamwalker,
    I\’m a bit late on making a comment but I find it hard to let go as some things stick especially before I go to sleep, I can forgive though but it\’s impossible to forget, but I agree it\’s best to avoid certain feelings and do my best to let them go. Thanks 4 sharing this with each of us. Love Lynn xxx
