Escape the Quicksand of Fear

September 21, 2020

Fear was my #1 issue during a personal growth session in 1991. It took us two hours to reveal what the particular fear was until I realized it was everything!

It took me years to recognize the insidious ways fear had molded my life since childhood.

Like attracts like, so when the vibration of fear precedes actions, the results reflect that energy. More things to fear.

What follows is lack; struggle; failure; disappointment; frustration; worry; anxiety; loss of business; financial hardship; and that dreadful fear of the future – “what if” things don’t work out and I face a fate worse than death?

Especially when I felt the fear was justified, being afraid grew exponentially; it was like adding sugar to yeast. “Just look at my circumstances. Anyone in them would feel this way.”

Once when my budget was screaming “ouch,” I feared missing a credit card payment. I knew someone this happened to, and her rates skyrocketed. My negative musings caused me unconsciously to pay my bill from an account where I don’t keep money… and I missed my payment.

My preoccupation with my imagined, financial ruin also had me overlook paying my water bill. I opened the top portion of a letter sent to alert me and set it aside thinking it was next month’s bill. Only after coming home from burying my cat who suddenly died and discovering my water had been turned off did I see it was a disconnect notice.

I had the money, but I was so consumed with fearing future disasters that I created them!  As Job said, “For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me.”

You may have been pulled into the quicksand of fear. Once you start sliding down its slippery slope, every frantic breath has you descend into it more deeply.

All my successes occurred when I let go of fear.

What is quicksand, and how does it work?

Quicksand is just a soupy mix of water trapped in ordinary sand that can’t escape. It’s a liquefied soil that can’t support weight. It can occur almost anywhere if the right conditions are present.

Contrary to being the frightening, bottomless pit portrayed in the movies, it rarely is deeper than a few feet.

Stepping into quicksand will not swallow you whole or suck you under, but thrashing about will force you deeper into it. The more you struggle, the faster you sink.

Most people who drown in quicksand or in any liquid are those who panic and start flailing their arms and legs. However, it’s easier to break free of it than you may think.

To escape you have to stop fighting. The key is not to panic.

The way out is to relax and make slow movements back to the surface. Because your body is less dense than the quicksand, you will float to the surface if you let go of the struggle and relax. In fact, it’s easier to float on quicksand than on water. Once afloat, you can find your way back to safety.

Hmm, so similar to fear – how we drown in it and how we can escape its murky mud.

Let go of struggling and relax!

Words were written in Japanese on containers that held water. The water was frozen creating crystals.
“Water has memory and transmits information, and everything is vibration.”
“Do you want to use negative energy or negative words or positive words?” Michiko Hayashi

 

May the copyright gods forgive me for not getting permission to publish these photos, but I feel this is too important not to share. (I’ve given attribution by means of website links at the bottom of this post.)

Your thoughts, words, emotions and intentions affect your immune system, and below are photos that illustrate this.

Last week, 50,000 people from around the world signed up for the online Sound Healing Global Summit. I watched all 35 leaders share their expertise during approximately 45-minute presentations each, and many were experiential. I took extensive notes.

Have you ever immersed yourself in an eye-opening experience where life revealed itself to you in new ways so clearly that you felt like a stretched rubber band that can never go back to its old shape again?

I wrote in my notes a modern interpretation of a Shakespearean quote that came to me about how I was feeling.

“What’s past is prologue.”

Whatever happened in my life before, seemingly good or bad, with its pain or joys, merely set the stage. Like the prologue of a play, my past is not my story but the introduction of what’s to come as I boldly and consciously create my future anew. It’s an opportunity to stop old, unsupportive ways and start healthier ones with a new vision.

This Covid time is a reset moment for each of us, a reset to the next chapter of our lives. We can create it to be a dynamic manifesting of our dreams.

Throughout my transformation, you were in my heart as I thought of ways to share this with you. Stay tuned for more on that to come.


Onward now to excerpts from Thursday’s presentation by Michiko Hayashi, who worked as a personal assistant to Dr. Masaru Emoto for over 10 years and is the successor of his legacy.

Dr. Emoto was a Japanese scientist and water researcher who revolutionized the idea that our thoughts, human words, sounds and intentions impact the physical world.

His 2005 New York Times bestseller The Hidden Messages in Water demonstrates how loving, benevolent and compassionate intentions and words imprint the physical, molecular structure of water to create beautiful crystal formations. Conversely, fearful and discordant human intentions create ugly, disfigured and “unpleasant” molecular formations.

He accomplished this through through Magnetic Resonance Analysis technology and high speed photographs of frozen water after playing music, writing words and using prayers of gratitude by people surrounding polluted bodies of water. Then he observed the water crystals.

Everything in life is vibration, and vibration is energy, or what they call HADO.

Consciousness, thoughts and emotion = HADO.

There is a phrase in Japanese that says every word has its own spirit, its own energy.  

The words Love, Gratitude and Thank you build our immune system.

Immune destruction comes from hatred and grudges.

This is the essence of the Law of Attraction.

Dr. Emoto discovered that water has memory. As our planet and ourselves are 70% water, we are impacted by our own and others’ words, thoughts, emotions and intentions.


 

THE EFFECT OF MUSIC


 

HERE’S WHAT THE WORD COVID-19 ON WATER LOOKS LIKE.  SOME DISTORTION BUT NOT UGLY.


 

COVID-19 AND FEAR CREATE THE UGLY DISTORTION!

This is what happens with the addition of the word Fear to Covid-19. “Fear is the one that made the ugly crystal. It really shows that we should stop being fearful or being worried. That it’s really negative energy that is creating the reality. If we are not really fearful to corona virus, it’s not really that [much] negative energy. If people are not really that fearful or worried or scared, it doesn’t really do much. That is what water is showing… Fear is what makes it really worse.” 

Michiko Hayashi


 

COVID WITH LOVE AND GRATITUDE CREATE A MORE BEAUTIFUL CRYSTAL.

“But if we show Covid-19 with Love and Gratitude together, that starts to create really beautiful crystals…

Here we see that our thoughts are powerful and affect even viruses.” Michiko Hayashi


Michiko shared that the opposite of love and gratitude is hatred and grudges.
We resonate with whatever we focus on, and then we attract more of the same energy.
Love and gratitude cancel out hatred, anger and grudges, and then Covid will not be harmful. Its energy will be canceled. That’s how vibration works.


 

WHAT WE CAN DO TO CHANGE OUR FIELD OF ENERGY

Feel stress? Think the word “relax.”

Tired of Same Ole? Supercharge Your Life!

November 4, 2019

woman joy

A few months ago, my client agreed to incorporate Oola essential oils in her session… that’s short for Oo la la.

Oola was inspired by two chiropractors, now known as the Oola guys. Once college buddies, one overcame challenges with the help of the other by balancing 7 key areas of life.

The 7 Oola essential oil blends were formulated by the late Gary D. Young, founder of Young Living Essential Oils.

Little did I realize the magical experiences that would follow.

First, a little background.

What is Oola?

From the Oolalife website…

“We are on this planet to help you FIND BALANCE and live a life of less stress and greater purpose – the OOLALIFE.”

Oo´• la \ n. adj. \ 1 a : a state of awesomeness b : a life that is balanced and growing in the key areas of health, finances, career, relationships, and well-being c : a destination (i.e., getting to Oola) 2 a : describing actions, insights and goals that lead to a balanced life (ex: That’s so Oola.) 3 a : the ultimate plan for achieving balance in an unbalanced world.

Oolalife is based on their international, bestselling book, Oola: Find Balance in an Unbalanced World.

“The Oola Lifestyle has become a literal phenomenon—a dynamic movement… [the Oola guys] travel the world collecting dreams and helping people find balance and growth in the 7 key areas of life (the 7 F’s of Oola) – Fitness, Finance, Family, Field (career), Faith, Friends, and Fun. By revealing how to remove the stress related to a life out-of-balance, they unlock the greatness that is inside all of us.”

What happened when we used my Oola protocol?

It occurred to me that there are 7 oils. We have 7 chakras (energy centers in our bodies)… and a protocol emerged to consciously apply the oils with intention along with my coaching.

After experiencing the protocol, which includes clarifying goals and dreams, everyone saw themselves differently.

They awakened to their inner spirit. Some had visions. Confidence reignited. They felt naturally happy, even joyous.

They described spontaneous, inner scenarios playing out in their thoughts where they were directing/ living/ getting assistance with their ideal lives.

Each one experienced something unique, which could be described in Oolalife terms as awesomeness.

Change the way we feel, and we attract amazing experiences. The Law of Attraction in demonstration.

I’ve implemented this protocol several times, and every time people felt a natural yet significant inner shift followed by a positive change that manifested dynamic, new opportunities and miracles.

What if we added masterminding to amplify this experience even more?

When two or more gather together in harmony, there’s an energy created, which we call mastermind energy. The mastermind energy can and does manifest goals we choose or something better. Imagine supercharging Oola-inspired goals and dreams even more!

What happened when I connected the dots?

Open and align energy centers + Oola essential oils  + Goal setting for 2020 + Masterminding + Coaching =
The Oola Goal Experience!

You and Your Friends are Invited

My clients have been hearing me talk about our Oola experience, and many got on board when they learned they could tap into this, too. Everyone who already experienced it and could fit it into their schedules have registered for it again.

Following her experience, a client emailed me this: “Thank you! I always love spending time with you but yesterday was over the top!.. I appreciate you and all you do for me and with me.” Not long after, an unanticipated, life-changing, huge opportunity presented itself, which she’s now pursuing. Life purpose to the nth degree!
So far, we have TWO Oola Goal Experiences scheduled.

The groups are small, so space is limited.

Saturday, November 16, 1-6 PM in Wimberley, TX.
Wednesday, November 20, 1-6 PM in Wimberley, TX.
Registration for the afternoon is $250.

Interested? Contact me, and we’ll discuss your questions or registration for the Oola Goal Experience! Consider bringing a friend, too!

virginia@soulgoals.com
As not everyone can make these dates, other Experiences may be scheduled in the future. If this might be for you, let me know and suggest times that could work.

I’d love to help you clarify and supercharge your goals! You deserve it!

With gratitude,

Why Is Your Life Happening The Way It Is?

September 30, 2019

 

Your thoughts and feelings are engines that generate results. If you don’t like what you see, you can recreate something better.

What I’m about to tell you may be a game changer.

Let’s start with the law of attraction, like attracts like – when it works positively.

A skin care specialist visualized lots of people calling for appointments.

  • Results? Shortly after, the receptionist reported that she booked several sessions for her – just as she asked for in her visualization.

However, she didn’t specify what kind of appointments.

  • Results? One was for a bikini wax, and she really doesn’t like to give them.

Because of her busy schedule, the client couldn’t get a wax as soon as she wanted but made the appointment anyway. In the meantime, the visualizer mused about how she didn’t want to do the wax.

  • Results? The client cancelled.

This is a classic case of cause and effect where thoughts become things, but your experience may differ.

So let’s get to what matters most to you. Why is your life happening the way it is?

Do you sometimes feel like you’re drowning and looking for a life saver?

Is this you?

I don’t know if I believe in this stuff. I tried it, and it didn’t work. I did everything right. I visualized, masterminded, had a positive attitude, created a vision board, and still no results.

Could it be that one part of you did “all the right things” and another part freaked out with anxiety? Were you feeling frustrated, angry, desperate, scared or doubtful?

Your world reflects what you predominantly think and feel. 

If so, no need to worry. Neville Goddard in Your Faith Is Your Fortune wrote this:

“Just as a branch withers and dies if the sap of the vine ceases to flow towards it, so do things and qualities pass away if you take your attention from them; because your attention is the sap of life which sustains the expression of your life.”

When you fuss and fret, your attention is on what you don’t want. Instead, change your focus, including emotionally, to what you choose.

TIP: Don’t EXPECT results. 

Say again. Isn’t that what you’re supposed to do?

Expecting results in a specific way is a booby trap, and you’re no boob. Here’s how it can foil your efforts.

When we mastermind, we ask for “this or something better.” Why? Because God, or if you’re more comfortable using the word the universe, may have a better way to bring results.

Energetic clinging repels results. Imagine a girl focused on finding a boyfriend. Guys sense this as dogs sense fear and run for the hills. Once she lets go of the search, there’s room for her dream to come true. 

I’m an expert on expectation… not bringing me results.

I can trick myself into thinking I let go when I’m really WAITING FOR, aka EXPECTING, a result from a SPECIFIC source. 

For example, in the past, while putting a group together, I expected my next event would fill it. If I had a financial goal, I expected a particular client would fulfill it.

I said I let it go, but I tried to control the outcome: I patiently relaxed to manifest my goals the way I expected. I knew how I thought it would happen. I took action to make it happen.

Here’s the telltale downside that I was in expectation. When it didn’t happen as expected, I got disappointed. Next came fear and my default program: Oh no, what am I going to do?

This started a vicious circle of expectation and disappointment which attracted more things that made me feel discouraged.

Now, I still hold events and have clients that could bring results. But, if they don’t, it’s called next. God will supply from other sources.

God is your supply. 

Don’t expect your supply to come from a person, event or anything in particular. You are ALWAYS taken care of by God, but results often come differently than you think they SHOULD. Results come when you let go and let God. Allow the universe to bring your answers.

Feeling dejected, rejected or injected with fear is not trusting. 

Trust is not giving up or moaning about what’s not working. These are childhood responses.

Instead, trust by ANTICIPATING RESULTS.

Anticipate your needs are fulfilled beyond your wildest expectations. Adopt a childlike curiosity of wonder instead of dictating an expectation.

It’s your job to:

  • Make a choice.
  • Pay attention to your nudges.
  • Take action on what you’re inwardly guided to do.

Let God fill in the HOW and why and where and by whom.

Remember:

  • Anticipate, don’t expect.
  • Trust that a divine energy can and does manifest goals you choose or something better.

Don’t like your new creation? Don’t create a story about how you never get what you want, etc. Choose again.

When you anticipate the best, you change the way your life is happening.

All is NOT Lost! What to do if Things Don’t Work the Way You Thought.

September 24, 2019

What do you do when you’ve invested a lot of energy into results that don’t happen?

You were really counting on that contract to come through, but now it’s up-in-the-air. A friend said she’d help you move but bailed at the last minute. Your relationship falls apart.

Things just didn’t work out the way you thought they should or would.

A freelancer counted on her big client to provide a steady flow of income. She had a realistic expectation this would continue.

Suddenly, she was let go.

After the initial shock, she put it in perspective. She used a journaling exercise found on my blog and had a CEO meeting with God. https://soulgoals.wordpress.com/category/ceo-meeting-with-god/  (Scroll down to the post on October 2, 2009.)

She realized she now had time to focus on projects and business ideas she’d put off.

Things don’t always work as expected. But change always makes way for something better, regardless of how it appears in the moment.

Your income, love, support, health and results don’t come from only one source. God, the Divine, is your supply. God or the universe, whatever word is in alignment with your beliefs, is never lost and offers infinite possibilities. Therefore, if something doesn’t work, new ways are found.

Maybe the change is what it took for you to let go and allow new possibilities to occur.

Sometimes you have to let go to free yourself.

Remember the proverbial monkey who grasps something in a vase but can’t remove it? The neck of the vase is so narrow that he has to release his grip just to get his hand out.

You’ll get results: your expectation, goal or something better. However, you may need to change your perspective or approach.

You may need to let go of your emotional and mental grasp to allow something better to come in.

What you focus on grows. In the past, have you chosen anxiety? Instead, enjoy a childlike trust and curiosity. Look for how the universe is assisting you. Consider it a mystery, and you delight in discovering an answer.

Believe there’s a happy ending, and focus on it. Why not? You probably tried fear and worry (over and over again), and they don’t produce lasting and fulfilling outcomes.

By the way, about out freelancer. All was far from lost. New jobs appeared through happenstance, and her big client came back a few months later. Her job situation worked out when she let go and shifted her perspective.

Not Getting What You Want? Here’s Why.

August 21, 2019


Here’s what happened to two of my clients that cut them off from getting what they wanted… and how they turned it around.

1. Before we started coaching, a man was tens of thousands of dollars in the hole. Soon after, he turned his business around and in the last year has socked away many, many tens of thousands in savings.

However, he had a major meltdown about the “bitter reality” of not being able to get something he had been looking forward to having. Although the upset occurred in his personal life, his tremendous momentum in sales came to a halt.

Usually, at the beginning of his sessions, he listed so many deals that I couldn’t write them all down. This time, he said his business was anemic. Nothing going on at all!

By the end of his session, he did a 180 turnaround as he “put things in perspective.” 

He said, “I trust I can deal with this better and more appropriately. I’m in a better spot now. I’m more comfortable about moving forward.

“I now feel gratitude for what I have instead of disappointment for what I don’t have.”

Less than two hours later, he got a call about a new prospect. The following day he had a new client!


Energy attracts like energy. What’s felt in some part of one’s life spills over to the rest of it. When he felt frustrated and disappointed, he magnetized other situations, like lack of clients, so he could continue feeling frustrated and disappointed. When he felt more positively, he attracted success.

2. Starting last fall, a seasoned professional’s business plummeted, and she was living off credit cards.

Shortly after coaching with me this year, she successfully turned her business around as she attained her goal of $1 million in monthly sales.

Suddenly, it all came to a standstill. $700,000 of deals completely fell through with no prospects on the horizon.

What happened?

She was brought up to believe that you have to work hard to get what you want. However, she met a guy last fall, and they’ve been having fun, fun, fun!

Recently, she’s been having so much fun that her limiting belief that “work has to be hard” crept back again. Her financial flow stopped cold in its tracks.

She became aware of her faulty belief, and let it go. During this week’s session, she reported that she’s on track to achieve her goal of $1 million of transactions next month, the time it takes for her deals to process. 

In the meantime, she received a call asking her to consider a totally unexpected, significant income stream. This put needed cash in her pocket now and will continue to do so in the future.

A simple thought that life and work have to be hard impacts results. When her fun life became incongruent with that erroneous belief, something had to give. For her, it was to stop making money. That is, until she caught on and turned it around.

Not getting what you want? There’s an underlying reason for the disconnect.

Change your perspective to turn your life around. Imagine differently. Start by seeing through the eyes of gratitude and having more fun.


Life is supposed to be fun. No one is taking score of any kind, and if you will stop taking score so much, you will feel a whole lot better — and as you feel a whole lot better, more of the things that you want right now will flow to you… All is really well. Have fun. Have fun. Have fun!

Angry? Frustrated? Here’s What I Wrote to my Client.

August 12, 2019
Here’s an excerpt of an email I sent a client who’s been experiencing challenges.

Recently, I’ve observed people transitioning from the way their life has been to something new and different. That can bring up a variety of feelings, some pleasant and others not so much.
 
I remember thinking in the early 1990s that my entire life was about frustration. There wasn’t any part of it that worked, from health, finances and career to my marriage. All were falling apart. This perfect storm became the springboard that has shaped the rest of my life of personal discovery and helping people like you.



   
Change is in the air, welcoming it, liking it, wanting it or not.
 
For some, it’s an exciting adventure.
 
For others, a dark cloud hangs overhead.
 
You, like the rest of us, have had a lifetime of listening to the false guidance of your ego, that façade of an identity. For you, it includes difficult emotions like anger and frustration. These emotions are like software glitches.
 
Here’s what Wikipedia says about glitches… computer glitches are incorrectly written software, incorrect instructions given by the operator, undetected invalid data, undetected communications errors…
 
You are not your software.
 
In contrast, your Essence is prompting you to listen within. This is the part of you that knows “all is well.”

Abraham-Hicks said:

“Your emotions are your indicator of how your active thought blends, or doesn’t blend, with the thought Source is thinking about the same subject in the same moment.”


The inner turmoil you’re experiencing is the conflict between your ego’s perspective and that of the Source within you.

Naturally, your ego is taking an all out stand for you to listen to its lies, lies that lead you to feel frustrated, angry and needing to sort things out.

To protect itself, it uses a type of logic in which it’s already trained you, indoctrinated into you, so you believe that it’s telling you the truth. It presents its case that leaves you feeling anger and frustration.

The logic only works if you see things from its limited and fearful point of view.

Habitual thinking creates entrenched neural pathways in the brain. These become your default, your easy “go to” ways you react. These reactions, instead of responses, don’t always serve you.

Just because ideas are in your head does NOT make them true!

However, you can most assuredly access your true Essence instead, as it is YOU!

A key is to differentiate between the whispers of your ego and your Essence.

The ego certainly doesn’t want you to be around positive people that shed light on how it manipulates you. This way it has you, back where you can be controlled by the stress and chaos of unsupportive emotions.

In defense of the ego, it thinks its protecting you. But these patterns were created from a child’s approach to survival. When presented with adult situations, the peace of your Essence offers greater insight and direction.

Ask your Essence to step forward to be heard, and choose to listen to its guidance.

Is (some of) Your Life Out of Control?

August 8, 2019

You are more powerful than you think! 

Consider the idea that thoughts are things.

Translated, this means that what you think and feel are what you experience in your life.

Wonder why your life can feel out of control at times? Look no further than your thoughts and feelings.

How can you turn it around? By setting clearer intentions and not reacting to things that look like they’re going wrong.


I know this can sound ridiculously simplistic. However, it not only works, but it can transform your life to being magical.

This is a very small sampling of what my life’s been like the last two weeks during my vacation.

While staying with a disabled, vision-impaired friend, I realized he needed a new vacuum cleaner. He also asked about trimming bushes around his home. When I saw them, it was obvious only a chain saw would be able to cut them back.

Soon after, a neighbor just happened to come outside, and we talked. I happened to mention to her that I was going to look for a second hand vacuum. That morning, she just happened to think of buying a new one. She did and gave us her perfectly good old one.

By the way, her husband has a chain saw and had been thinking of trimming my friend’s bushes. We’re talking bushes spanning the entire side and back of the house reaching above the roof.

My friend and I went out for the day. Throughout that time, I probably made at least 30 minutes of seemingly wrong turns.

When we returned, the neighbor’s husband just happened to arrive home and get out of his car at the precise moment we left mine. We discussed plans for him not only to cut the branches, but he’d haul them away as well! A massive and pricey job in itself – and he’d do it all for free.

The following day, my friend and I went to an event. We parked on a city street at the precise time our mutual friends helped to take the wheelchair out of the trunk.

A few days later, I left town to go to a museum, six hours later than planned. When I paid for my ticket, I was told the last tour of the day started in three minutes.

That evening I arrived at the home of family members who lived hours away. The electricity had been down in their neighborhood for seven hours. Two minutes before I pulled into their driveway, the electricity came on. 

 These are just a few examples of how my life has been going while on vacation.

On reflection, here are a couple of ways I created this:

Before my trip, I consciously set strong intentions.

These included ideas like I’m in divine flow, I’m having a great time and I’m safe. 

When things looked like they were going wacky, like going out of my way because of wrong turns, I took it in stride and assumed it was all going to work out.

Additionally, I fulfilled another intention to be in the right place at the right time.

If you feel like your life is out of control in some ways, observe your thoughts and feelings.

You can re-imagine your life, finances, work or business. Be sure to add with grace and ease, so what you choose comes to you in a pleasing way.

Regardless of your circumstances, you can always look at life from a different perspective and, by doing so, re-create it.

Yes, you can design your life the way you choose. You are not a victim of circumstance.

I was told by two doctors that there was nothing to be done about arthritis in my lower back, and I should just accept it.

I didn’t and told them to stop telling me I couldn’t do anything about it.

I started the keto diet, am now 25# lighter, arthritis-free and feel better than I have in decades.

But don’t take my word that you can change your life. Prove it to yourself.

I Deleted 200 Phone Contacts

April 8, 2019

My contact list cleansing started innocently when my journaling meandered to an experience that happened a few months ago. On multiple occasions, I had conversations and hugs with a woman who works at a local store. We enjoyed some similar interests.

Longer story short, I invited her to my home; she was going to give me ideas about colors to paint my rooms. I thought it would be a nice opportunity to know her better, too.

She was to arrive at 2 PM. An hour earlier, I started to prepare food dishes that I planned for her visit.

At 2:01, she texted me: “Hey Virginia. This date won’t work.”

Mmmm, like she just realized this one minute after she was supposed to arrive? No other comment?

I texted a cordial reply.

Next I invited my 79-year old neighbor to join me as I lured her with a change of beverage from tea to wine. We savored my array of appetizers and our conversation.

While journaling, it occurred to me that the name of the woman who was a no-show started with an “A,” was at the beginning of my phone Contacts, and I saw it practically every time I opened my list.

As I don’t plan on needing this woman’s number anymore — she’s changing jobs, I’m unlikely to see her again, there’s no reason for her to call me and the thought of her was attached to this experience — why was I keeping her phone number?

Delete contact.

Ms. “A” was the beginning of 200 more contacts who met their expunged destinies. After a while, I realized I was following a method similar to cleaning closets. If I haven’t talked with them for a long while and we no longer share mutual interests… DELETE CONTACT! If I really need their numbers, I could find a way to get them.

  • I no longer have anything in common with this person. Delete.
  • Most people in this organization and I are on different wavelengths. Delete. Delete. Delete.
  • These people are unkind, in general and to me. Others have already blocked them. Delete. Delete.
  • For years, I’ve neither talked with nor do I have any interest in communicating with these people, who I’ve known since before the invention of the telephone. Delete. Delete.
  • Do I really think they’re going to realize they were the jerks and owe me an apology? Wake up! Delete. Delete.
  • These people are dead! Find another way to remember them. Delete. Delete.

And so the process began with a keen consideration about why I kept them on my list.


As clarity came once I got into the swing of why and how to let go, it became easier to release.

Letting go was liberating. I felt empowered. 

I discovered that a part of me had been holding myself back.

Until I finished letting go of them on my list, I didn’t realize that I also deleted unconscious thoughts and feelings that I should be the person that some of them wanted me to be. I let go of ugly interactions.

Especially if I hadn’t talked with them for years and didn’t believe there’d be future contact, what was I holding onto

In part, I’d been holding onto memories or a vision of rewriting who we are together, that our lives hadn’t drifted in different directions.

For others, it meant that for me to have a mutually satisfying relationship with them, I’d have to be who I used to be or someone else to fit in.

That’s no longer an option, and this exercise let go of old energy to make room for me to be ME in a bigger way.


Before computerization, I pulled out cards with contact info of people I knew when I lived on the other side of the country. I didn’t want to let them go, but we hadn’t talked because we were no longer involved with mutual activities. I secured the cards with a rubber band and filed them with other papers.

When I found the pile of cards later, I couldn’t even remember who they were.

We grow. We move on.

No longer seeing certain names so frequently helps to refocus on the now and the future instead of the past.

I often feel profound gratitude to be with friends and clients who have traveled life’s roads with me, or our paths have periodically intersected, sometimes for decades. I’ve also discovered that the caliber of these individuals is often worlds apart from those who I attracted 10, 20 or more years ago. With my current peeps, I can more fully be myself. They understand my heart and what I teach. As a result their lives, and mine because of them, have gotten better and better.

Removing those 200 contacts created space, and the universe doesn’t like a vacuum. This means I’m attracting those who are in greater energetic alignment with who I am now.

What are you willing to let go of so you can move on to bigger and better things?
