The Connect & Let Go Process
By Shri Krishna Kalesh
I developed this process by first creating The Personality Cards, my first oracle deck. The idea here is to focus on the challenging imagery that often reemerges so that the emotions arise just enough to be released. Connect with the imagery and emotions, then let them go.
Additionally, focusing on personality attributes that have caused you trouble in the past can help you connect with the emotions that may have inspired them, so you can also release those as well. Connect with the attributes and related emotions, then let them go.
In all things, we must welcome our feelings and emotions. Never judging them, we fully embrace them, and we lovingly nudge them to rise up. Then we can either lovingly dissolve, coddle, release, or watch them gently exit our systems.
We do the same with others who are exhibiting feelings and emotions. We do not judge them for how these things emerge for them.
We do not blame the person who is upset for being too angry, sad, depressed, brash, or anything other exaggerated emotion.
We do not judge cursing or harsh language.
While we, of course, should not allow physical violence and protect ourselves at all costs, we encourage and seek only the person’s acknowledgment of their pain, their healing, their path to letting go, and the journey toward forgiveness.
Begin the process by first acknowledging if any image comes to mind that you can welcome into your sphere. In doing so, can you feel the motions related to it?
Can you focus so intently on it that it inspires an emotion to rise to the surface?
Can you process this emotion by either crying or feeling the intensity of it for some time?
For all of these questions, you can either sit with your Self and process these within your mind and heart, or you can add journaling to help you connect and let go.
Be vulnerable with your Self in this moment.
Open your heart to awaken your own healing.
Ask God or Deity or Guru to be with you.
Open your heart to The Divine.
Allow your Self to be a child, truly open and pure.
Tell The Divine your problems as if She is your best friend.
Describe what bothers you most.
Describe what brings you pain.
Ask God to be with you, love you, hold you, and bless you.
Express Your Emotions
How does this make you feel?
Now that you are open and feeling loved, explore the images that come to mind.
Can you find the tears?
If not, can you breathe for a while to see what emerges?
Can you tell your Self: I love you, I am with you, God loves you, you are doing a wonderful job.
Is there someone you can forgive?
Is it you or someone else?
Can you empathize with the other person?
Can you empathize with your Self and who you used to be?
Can you feel the other person’s pain?
Can you feel the pain of the former You?
Can you forgive them now?
Can you love and appreciate yourself for working on your Self?
What do you need to appreciate at this time?
Can you let your tears flow?
Can you let forgiveness flow?
Can you allow the troubling imagery to exist and then dissolve?
Can you let your grudges, grievances, and projections go?
Can you let it all go?
Can you forgive everything?
What did you let go of today?
Describe what shifted
Describe how you feel now
Describe what is different
How will you go forward?
Healing After Letting Go
Om 3 times into your hands.
Rub your whole body 3 times with your holy hands.
If you’d like, imagine your deity’s or guru’s face in the palm of your hands as you do this.
Pray for everyone involved.
Chant your mantra for some time.
Tell The Divine how much you love her.
Tell your Self how much you love her.
Recite something like: I am loving, peaceful, and happy, ready for a new day!
