Letting Go of the Old
To let go of the old, we must first become aware of what no longer serves us. This awareness can be complex, as we may have become attached to certain material things or behaviors in our lives. However, it is essential to remember that change is inevitable. If we want to grow, we must be willing to let go of the things that hold us back.
Some things that we may need to let go of include:
- Unhealthy relationships
- harmful habits
- negative self-beliefs
- anything that is no longer serving us
- the junk cluttering our psychological and physical space
Letting go of these things makes space for new and better things to enter our lives.

- spending time with loved ones
Find what works best for you, and give yourself time and space to process the changes. Being gentle with yourself during this time is also essential, as change can be difficult. Remember that you are worth it and deserve to live a fulfilling and authentic life!
Welcoming the New
Once you have let go of the old, it is time to welcome the new. Give thanks and be grateful. Letting go just opened room for the newness of possibility to re-enter your life. While it is crucial to be thankful, do so with an open heart and mind.
Consider what you want to bring into your life, and make space for it. Setting goals, charting your dreams, or simply making a list of things you want to manifest is a great start. You and the universe operate as a partnership in this agreement. While your plan may be pressing, realizing that the universe has a plan for you is also essential.
