Here lately I’ve been struggling to release mine. Rather it be hurtful situations or people who have wronged me someway or another I’ve been clinching to all of these situations really tightly.  I’ve discovered that the past is a very poisonous thing to hold on to. The reason why is because it stops your momentum. It’s almost like one stops living. It steals your joy and life and causes turmoil in relationships.  The inner turmoil then spreads to other parts of life creating more dysfunction.  At first I couldn’t figure out how to release the past and I grew beyond frustrated.  Truth is it is perception on it that must change. We must accept the difficult parts of life with open arms and love before things will change. So for me will embracing my journey to move forward by writing about it. Reading affirmations and remembering the importance of the lessons learned.  That is the only way to move forward. This is a day by day journey. Some things that aided me in releasing the past were things that resonate with the heart chakra. The heart chakra is all about compassion, forgivness and unconditional love. I bought stones that resonate with that chakra. For example I purchased rhodonite, apache tears, and rose quartz. These stones carry the vibrations of forgiveness and love and moving on. I take detox rose petal baths which open the heart chakras.  These are some of the useful tools I use when I’m feeling stuck in the past for resentment for things or people.  The beat way to change how you think is to create affirmations.  Say them everyday until it’s embedded in to your subconscious.  

With love I release the past. I forgive myself and others for anything that may have disturbed me emotionally.

Feel free to make your  affirmations as they for your situation.
