It has been a crazy “letting go” journey over the past month or so, including a lot of craziness that came up to this moment of finally being able to release this episode of the Joyful Living Podcast. The fascinating thing has been that I’ve heard many people in my life experiencing a lot of “letting go” lessons at this time, too, so I know this is not just something I’ve been going through. However, my journey with all of this really became powerful as I learned more about Samhain, the Gaelic festival where Halloween came from (usually celebrated October 31-November 1). The theme of this holiday on a very deep level is all about letting go. Fascinating timing, right?
Little did I know at the time, but the “letting go” we talked about in Episode 17 was the tip of the iceberg of this incredible letting go journey. Weeks of intense sickness and blew through my household and my own body. It was a season of feeling the depths of the pain and then fully letting it go.. for good. It was also a season of taking a closer look at every major commitment in my life, cleaning up and letting go of any fear-based motivation involved and choosing more into alignment with my soul. However, when I went to publish this episode, other fascinating letting go lessons arose, such as my website suddenly completely being taken down due to being severely hacked (taking many days to recover).
So, rather than resist this season of letting go, I leaned fully and deeply into it. Now, on the other side, I feel more free and alive than ever before.
Listen to this episode to learn the powerful lessons that are found within leaning into letting go and join me in this wild and fabulous journey. My hope is that it will encourage and inspire you to continue to go deeply into your own letting go so you can live even more free for your next season of life.
