Worry & Fear: Let It Go

By Pamela J. Wells

Constantly worrying about problems or other people sabotages, not only your peace and joy, but it sabotages the peace and joy of those who are around you, especially the person with whom you are worrying about. It creates overwhelming feelings of anxiety and stress.

Worrying about problems does not change the problem, it changes you. It causes unnecessary stress, mentally, emotionally, and physically—creating fertile ground for psychological and physical ailments, such as anxiety, depression, and disease. When you are constantly worried about someone, you are not only creating unnecessary stress for yourself, but you are creating unnecessary stress for the person with whom you are worrying about. You want them to be happy, but you sabotage their happiness through your worry and fear, such as the fear that something bad might happen to them; whether it be your kids or other loved ones.

You Have To Let It Go.
Let Go of Fear & Let Go of Worry.

When you are struggling with a problem, but you do not know how to handle it or what to do or if you should do anything, continuing to think about it will not bring the solution. The mind creates blocks. You have to silence your mind and become still. When you let go, surrender to it completely. You will be overcome with feelings of peace and contentment.

Find a quiet place, sit down, and allow yourself to Let Go—Surrender. Let go and surrender your fear and worry, whether it is over another person or a problem, Let It Go. You are not letting go of your love for them. You are letting go of your fear that something might happen to them. You are letting go of worrying about them. If it is a problem, you are letting go of the fear and worry about the problem. You do what you can, if you can, if it is action that you need to take, but you do not worry about it or dwell on it. Whatever the problem is—it is what it is, and either you can change it or you cannot; either way, do what you can, but do not worry about it. Let It Go.

There are plenty of meditation techniques out there to choose from, but the most simplest and basic technique is to sit in a comfortable position, relax your body and your mind by focusing on you in-breath and your out-breath, breathing in slowly and breathing out slowly. Do not resist or fight the thoughts that come to you, just see them as they come and let them go easily, and return to focusing on your breath. Continue to do this and with practice you will be able to quiet your mind, you will feel more at ease and peaceful, and when you do have to make a decision or choice, you will be doing so from an uncluttered, clear mind, and you will be able to feel and trust that inner knowing that is naturally within you that will guide you in the right direction.

Free Yourself 
from the
Cage of 
Fear and Worry.
Let Your Spirit Soar.
