"This letting go of things keeps on showing up." She said smiling acceptingly. "We really are beings of 'hanging on' to things, aren't we.'
"Yes. But it's all part of the learning." S-H-E smiled kindly. "Letting go, creates space in one's life. But that space can be a double-edged sword. The space created by letting go can sometimes be too much and one's mind simply re-attaches to the thing you let go of in order to fill the void letting go created."
"No wonder it can be so difficult." She replied. "And not surprising then that when we think we've let go, that very same thing crops up again. So how does one overcome that 'void?"
"An effective way is to fill, at least part of that void, with something new." S-H-E answered. "It's the same as when one gives up a bad habit. It's easier when one replaces the bad habit with a good habit. So too will replacing the thing you let go of with something motivating, new and uplifting. When you let go of one thing, you are broadcasting to the Universe that you are open and receptive to something new. Stating and aligning to that fact is a key to opening to the new. However, if you do not at least set an intention of receiving that which is new and more beneficially aligned to your Soul path, that which you let go of will pop back up and fill the gap instead."
"But we don't always know what that new thing or direction is." She said.
"True." S-H-E replied. "But even a simple statement of intent can make the difference. Giving your mind something new to grab onto to replace that which you let go of. For example, say you're letting go of a bad relationship or an old wounding around self-worth. Your statement of intent could be 'I am now open and receptive of new, uplifting, mutually beneficial relationships' or 'What I have to offer the world is of importance and I willingly accept new challenges and ways of expressing my confident, unique self.' You live in a realm of duality and opposites. So even simply being open to the opposite of what you're letting go of will help. This allows for space for something new to still flow into your life, but gives your mind a point of focus from which new expression and experience can evolve."
"That makes so much sense." She said. "We do that with the obvious bad habits but don't always consider doing that for all the other baggage we've attached to."
"That's quite true." S-H-E replied. "At the end of the day, all baggage is merely a different form of 'bad habits' that one has attached to."
"They say that bad habits or behaviours take on average 66 days to change." She observed. "We need to be more patient enough with ourselves, don't we."
"Yes, you do." S-H-E answered with a gently loving smile.

Conversations with S-H-E
Conversations with S-H-E begun early 2018 when S-H-E appeared first in a visionary dream state and then more frequently in meditations and dreams since then. 'Her' name - S-H-E - embodies the essence both SHE and HE; multidimensional states of consciousness between Spirit/Heaven/Earth; Yin-yang and All that is.
