Leave the Past in the Past

Gentle Reflection

I invite you to free yourself from re-living the continual suffering of the past and choose to be in the present moment. No matter how potent the past might have been open yourself to self-awareness of when you choose the emotions and pain of the past to consume the present. Consciously select a relaxed state of awareness and take in a scene in nature, the sights, sounds and smells like your backyard or a walking path.

Another way to change your perception of the present is a meditation that will help you pause and connect to breath, connect to the present, and possibly repeat a mantra. This relaxation allows you to “switch off” your habitual thoughts and allow an expansive view and personal insight to enter your consciousness. I have found such action will help you find peace, and understanding of Self as well as freedom from past pain.

Listen to this brief guided meditation to assist you in releasing the past:
