I have a habit of holding on to things. Emotionally. And physically. A dentist had to intervene to remove my baby teeth. During childbirth I needed to have my waters broken. In hindsight I would go so far as to say that my tumour was a manifestation of holding on, of contraction, of fear. Holding on is damaging to the body, it blocks energy. Our entire system works on the basis of cellular communication - we are energetic beings. Stagnation, particularly in the organs of elimination, causes toxic build-up. Long term inability to eliminate the body's rubbish leads to diseases, like cancer.
So I am practicing 'letting go'. It's harder than it sounds, but the rewards are worth the effort. When we let go, we relax, we become more present, we stop worrying about what is coming, and what has been. We stop judging - situations, others, ourselves. We stop needing to know how and why and what. Most importantly, we stop fighting, and we begin to TRUST - we remember how to BE.
