In the beginning, it will be everything physical that keeps you "stuck" in a memory, thought or place. IF you get the message, it is FOR your benefit, but your logical mind cannot comprehend this, as it cannot "see" the purpose, reason or outcome. It will want to hold on to "that". It will want to convince you how you cannot live without "that" and how if you let that go, you will be lost, less or just plain nothing.... it is quite the opposite in this world of opposites. Once you let go, you will grieve, as the human has to FEEL to allow the energy to go that has created an attachment to "that" to fill a lack within. Each grieving period gets shorter and shorter and then one day, it is actually very quick.
Then one starts looking to get rid of stuff, as they realize how much "stuff" has interfered in their happiness here & their vibrational frequency as all. The soul seeks simplicity and it desires to ascend, to be vibrant, to radiate, yet all the stuff, attachments and old energy keep it grounded to the physical reality that was the original purpose of the journey.
That purpose is no longer. The holding on is the way of the old. All that one holds on to keeps them anchored in the physical. IF you are not happy with your life in every moment that is, then why hang on? Why not listen to your heart, let go & soar in peace, bliss and love of all that is?
If you let go, you will not fall. You will float as the exquisite energy that you are. ♥
