Breaking free from the chains of the past is a journey many of us embark on. Often, clients come to me seeking relief from digestive issues and overwhelming thoughts. However, as our sessions progress, we often discover that the roots of their struggles lie in unresolved past incidents.

These incidents could range from feeling let down by a parent's love, be it a mother falling short of expectations or a father who may have been absent or overly demanding. Resentments towards those who wronged them, vivid memories of rejection by a loved one, and regrets about actions taken or opportunities missed tend to surface during our conversations.

According to Vianna Stibal, the founder of ThetaHealing, these feelings of regret, resentment, and rejection can impact our liver, kidneys, and lungs. Ayurveda aligns with this perspective, highlighting the connection between emotions and physical well-being.

Vianna takes it a step further, suggesting that we hold on to these emotions because, in some way, they make us feel safe. For instance, holding a grudge against someone who has hurt us might seem like a protective shield, preventing further harm. Each grudge we carry serves us in some way, even if it's not immediately apparent.

This notion is powerful, and you can test it and release it in your own selves with a simple exercise:

1. Close your eyes and take 3 deep breaths to center yourself.
2. Now think of someone you hold a grudge against.
3. Notice the changes in your body – where do you feel it? That's where the energy against that person resides.  Assign it a color.
4. Ask yourself how the grudge serves you. What benefit do you derive from holding the grudge?
5. Listen for the answer – it will come.
6. Affirm that you are safe and ready to release the grudge. Visualize the color leaving your body through your feet, grounding it into the earth to be transmuted into dirt.

7. Thank yourself for doing the practice and open your eyes.

This practice can be transformative, helping you let go of the burdens of grudges. There are various methods to release the past, such as Inner Child Healing, ThetaHealing, or even journaling your thoughts and burning them.

Choose a method that resonates with you, and remember – life is too short to dwell on the past. Embrace the beauty of the present and set yourself free!
