Let Go and Let God

by Alison David Bird

Ascension Energy One of the most difficult things you will do during this period of great change is say “goodbye” to someone you love or, have loved in the past. 

We are sociable creatures but familiar faces do more than just bring us comfort. Whether they are family or friends, those we interact with the most contribute to our sense of Self. Loved ones provide foundation and support and bare witness to our journey. They act as mirrors that reflect our own actions and behaviors, and are barometers for our personal development. 

Even when a relationship becomes frictional and more difficult to maintain, we often feel defined by the years we have spent together and feel obliged to hold on, regardless of whether it continues to be healthy for us. Because losing a friend makes us feel as though we have lost a part of ourselves. We feel as though we have failed in some way as a person, and that undermines our fundamental sense of wellbeing. We hang on to some relationships far too long, determined to see them through to the bitter end. And sometimes it does get bitter. 

We, as spirit, phased-locked into the illusion of individual expression here on this planet, may have contracted for experiences that cannot be shared with another. This may create imbalance in a relationship - romantic, platonic or familiar - that leads to resentment, judgment, and even outright conflict. All of which can result in the breakdown of the relationship.

 In the Higher Realms relationships are for a season only. Even romantic relationships are for the purpose of sharing, learning and growing and when a relationship has been served, both sides wish each other well, and move on. 

The loss of someone close to you through death is always contracted. It is an experience that is designed for everyone involved to learn from the dynamic of the event, which creates a nexus point across multiple timelines, allowing for renewed contracts, choices and experiences. Someone you love contracted for it to happen in Divine right timing. Most likely, they will still assist you on your path from a higher space. 

As hard as it is… as it will be, know that as someone leaves your sphere, whether through the death transition or through the demise of a friendship, you can be sure that the space they leave will be filled. The loss of a close friend or a loved one however painful is often followed by the arrival of someone else, a new teacher, as if sent by the universe itself. Don't judge the package, or the nature of the arrival; embrace it. It doesn’t have to be a blood relative, yet it still could be the most important member of your Soul group. 

In the old paradigm, our local community was key to our survival. It was typical of friends, families and neighbors to stick together through thick and thin, dragging each other over every hump and bump in the road, to stand a better chance of emerging undefeated in life. 

These times require a different type of love. The kind of love that sets someone free from the bonds that bind you together, so they can travel the path set out for them before they were born. A path that may be beset with specific challenges and opportunities which will enable them to meet the requirements of karmic accounting before embarking on the next phase of their spiritual journey. 

Unconditional Love, will help you to let go of those souls, and send them on their way in the knowledge that by the Grace of God, you will meet again, if you so choose, and you will recognize each other and your infinite connection through Spirit.
