How to Let Go of the Past and Move Forward In Your Life | Tips For Letting Go and Moving Forward

Change begins with Endings. When something ends, you must change in some way because what was is no more. There is little you can do about it: you may try to fight it - usually unsuccessfully - or you can accept it and move on.

Change is an annoyance at the very least. Sometimes it creates a crisis for you. There are many levels of change along the scale from annoyance to crisis. In any case, discomfort comes into the picture - sometimes for a short- term and other times, it is long-term or permanent depending on how accepting you are.

In order to let go of the past and move on with the present, it is important to recognize and accept the fact that the past is the past. It is over! There is nothing you can do about the series of events that have occurred up until this current moment. Although you cannot control what happened in the past, you CAN control how you view the past and how you choose to react to it today.

Many times, in order to overcome a past trauma with hypnosis, you have to teach yourself that the trauma was an independent event. No matter how horrible it was, that doesn't mean that it's going to happen again and again.

For some reason, therapy still has a stigma attached to it. The world would be a much better place if more people received therapy. Select a counselor that sees you and treats you as the 'whole' person -- mind, body, and spirit. Unfortunately, some counselors like to shove pills down your throat instead of really working through your emotions.

If you are ready to move forward, or need help letting go of the past, there are some things you can do to help yourself. Letting go requires your participation. It is not enough to know you need to let go of the past, or to tell yourself someday I will get over it. To let go of the past, you will need to take action.

No matter what kind of past trauma you have suffered, the pain you are feeling over it today comes directly from your subconscious - the part of your mind that is responsible for most of the thoughts and actions you have. For some reason, your subconscious is "stuck"; it won't let you get over the trauma, no matter how hard you try.

Letting go begins with the right attitude. See your divorce as a challenge and an opportunity for a new beginning, rather than your life has ended and you are doomed to a miserable existence.

If the friend or relative who caused this hurt is still in your life, you can try talking to them and expressing how you feel. If they are gone, then it may help to talk to a professional about it. Expressing how you feel may reduce your anger or your pain. Keeping intense emotions trapped inside is destructive.

To begin to move forward in your life again, you must learn to let go of any anger, guilt, hurt or any other emotion you have attached to the situation. It's not always easy and it is an ongoing process, but if you truly want to move forward in life and get a greater grasp on happiness, then you'll really need to be dedicated in allowing the release process to occur.

And there are also those emotions that we may not consciously be aware of, but which are replayed time and again when some experience or thought just seems to trigger them on a subconscious level.

Turn your heartache into art. If you enjoy writing, journal your past and how you plan to move forward. If you enjoy painting, then express your feelings through your art. When we have a way to express our inner thoughts, we free ourselves from them.
