How to Fully Let Go

Personalized support for learning how to integrate mindfulness into your life. Delivered fresh everyday by our world renowned experts. Choose meditation duration:

Hi, welcome back to your Daily

Mindfulness, In today's session, I

want to talk about how that which we

touched deeply, we can fully let go.

That, which we touched

deeply, we can fully let go.

I find this to be a topic that is

hard to talk about conceptually.

I can't really point to any science

that shows why this is true.

All I can point to is my own anecdotal

experience and what seems to be

a law of how the mind works in

relationship to the human experience.

I posted this to a group of mine recently

and wanted to get their perspectives

on like does this, does this resonate?

Does the idea that that which we

touch deeply, we can fully let go?

Does that resonate with your experience?

And everyone had an experience that

was aligned with this, where they

could feel into the truth of it.

There was one that stood out

that I'll share with you.

It was a gentleman who said

he had been experiencing a

lot of numbness in his life.

And his tendency in relationship to the

numbness was to, to try to spring out

of it and do something or feel better

or spring into action, because it just

felt like, oh, I'm, I'm feeling depressed

or there's something wrong with me,

or I have to overcome this numbness.

But he tried a different

orientation to it.

He allowed himself to really

open up to it, to sit with it,

to just be with the numbness.

And once he did, he was able to touch

it deeply and touch it in the sense

of allow himself to feel it fully.

And when that happened, he said

it released, but then led to this

pent up frustration that had been

there beneath the surface that the

numbness was somewhat blocking him

to, which then when that was fully

experienced led to a feeling of relief.

And then tears.

And then the rest of him opened up and

there was this beautiful experience

of completion and resolution.

Like you just cycled through a

lot of internal stuff that didn't

get the space to be experienced.

You know, all emotions

are like a sine wave.

They arise and they pass.

You could say that about most

aspects of our experience, that

the direct experience of them.

A thought arises and it passes.

Sensations arise and

they shift and they pass.

Anything in the natural world has this

experience of arising and passing.

But one of the things that gets in the

way of that passing is all of our ideas

about what we should be experiencing,

that it shouldn't be here, that we

want to be experiencing something else.

So my invitation from this daily

mindfulness, is just to look at some of

the things in your life that are maybe

frustrating that you're running from,

trying to avoid or trying to overcome.

And what would it look like instead to

take this relationship of, I need to get

through this to take the relationship of,

can I just touch this deeply and fully.

We don't want to do this with everything.

Alone, that is.

There are some experiences, maybe

deep traumas that we would want

to go into this with support.

And that's where a therapist comes in.

But a lot of our experiences, pain from

an argument that happened earlier in

the day, decision we made that we're

feeling confusion about, we can make

space for ourselves and we have the

resources to hold that by going into it.

And I think what you'll find as an

interesting phenomena of the mind

and of the body is that we, when we

do touch something deeply in this

way, it has the ability to release.

And now we can transition into

the next moment more fully and

with a greater sense of wholeness.

Thank you for your practice.

Let's settle into today's meditation.
