Letting Go

Sometimes ‘letting go’ is so important, as it may be the only choice you have. You must have often heard people saying to you “let go of this feeling/emotion/relationship/job/person etc., it is not worth your worries/attention/tears/love”, to which your response usually must have been “what do you know? It is easier said than done!”… Ah! And now you are probably smiling thinking back in time! But yes, letting go is sometimes really important – maybe because it is the only choice you have or, maybe, because holding on is causing you or others more hurt, pain or burden.

Let us talk about, as an example, letting go of a relationship that once meant a lot to you. It could be with a very dear friend or a special someone. At some point you realize that this relationship is giving you more pain than the joy you once expected it would. Or you realize that you are doing each other more harm than good by being together. Or you realize that you, or the other person, have lost interest or the spark that there once was. Or you realize that it is, put simply, ‘not meant to be’. Whatever your realization is, now you know that the only choice, or probably the best thing to do, is to ‘let go’. But because of the feelings involved, or the emotions invested, you are finding it hard to do so.

One of the reasons for this inability in letting go could be that, unfortunately – thanks to the commercial cinema, especially romantic comedies, they make everything appear so much larger than life really is, even basic human emotions! –, people have formed unrealistic ideas about letting go and moving on with life. Letting go does not necessarily have to end up with people landing in nightclubs hooking up with strangers or in bars with their friends dancing and singing “life is so much fun now that I have moved on” THE VERY NEXT DAY. Although the choice is really yours as to how you want this to be. ‘Letting go’ is a very gentle, peaceful process of pure love and forgiveness towards others and oneself… and the journey begins inwards.

You may ask “how can there be love and forgiveness if the idea is to just let go?” You may be surprised, but love and forgiveness are at the foundation level of this process. Having feelings of revenge, hatred, loathing, envy or disgust means that you are still holding on to it – whatever the ‘it’ may be in your case.

If you are at a position in life where you want to let go of something and you have still found yourself saying “easier said than done”, smile… because with Hypnotherapy this process for you will be “easier said AND done”. Try it for yourself. Book your Hypnotherapy session today and learn the art of easily, gently, peacefully and naturally ‘letting go’.

Recently I received a call from someone who wanted an appointment with me because he was in depression, and he said it in a way as if it was a taboo to be depressed. When he finally came and sat down in front of me, the first thing he said was, “don’t think I am mad. I do not have any mental illness. I am just depressed because of certain issues. That does not mean I am mentally unstable, right?”

I was not surprised to hear this because a lot of people still consider seeking mental or emotional help as something shameful. They feel that the society will look down upon them, laugh at them or, worse, send them to a mental institution. However, what did surprise me was what he told me about his issue. His brother had passed away less than two months before his visit to me. Right after this unfortunate event, he started having sleepless nights because he was really close to his brother and missed him terribly. One of his friend’s father was a psychiatrist and, when he heard about this ‘insomnia’, put him on anti-depressants. The condition got worse in a few days and he started experiencing numbness in his brain and would often go ‘blank’ or become ‘spaced-out’. The friend’s father sent him to a neurologist, conducted some tests, sent him to a psychoanalyst for further diagnosis and eventually reached the conclusion that he is clinically depressed and has borderline bipolar disorder and put him on strong medication.

Now all of this happened in a matter of 10 days. He was already taking prescribed drugs for 20 days when he visited. But all this while, and thankfully so, he was not ready to accept whatever the doctors told him and wanted to give an alternative therapy, like hypnotherapy, a try.

It surprised me that how, for something as natural as grieving the death of a loved one, he had to go through so much. Have people’s tolerance levels really gone down so much? Or is it that, because of so many drugs manufacturers out in the market, almost every medical professional simply wants to shove more and more drugs down people’s throats, for as long as they can pay for them?

Sadness, frustration, anger, guilt, panic, stress – these are all part of our humanness. As long as these emotions do not drive us to the point of

hurting ourselves or others, it is okay to feel them, experience them, deal with them and let go of them. Yes, medicines ARE important for those suffering serious medical conditions – mental or physical – but you do not need to pop a pill every time you let a heavy breath out.

Instead, try alternative practices, like hypnotherapy, to deal better with everyday ‘normal’ emotional issues. Hypnotherapy helps you in becoming stronger, happier and more positive. And NO, it is not a drug… it is just a way of life. Try it for yourself today and feel its benefits.
