Letting Go--Basic Principles

A thought is a “thing”. It has energy and form.

The mind with its thoughts and feelings controls the body; therefore, to heal the body, thoughts and feelings need to be changed.

What is held in mind tends to express itself through the body.

The body is not the real self; it is like a puppet controlled by the mind.

Beliefs that are unconscious can manifest as illness, even though there is no memory of the underlying beliefs

An illness tends to result from repressed and suppressed negative emotions, plus a thought that gives it specific form (i.e., consciously or unconsciously, one particular illness is chosen rather than another).

Thoughts are caused by suppressed and repressed feelings. When a feeling is let go, thousands or even millions of thoughts that were activated by that feeling disappear.

Although a specific belief can be cancelled and energy to it can be refused, it is generally a waste of time to try to change thinking itself.

We surrender a feeling by allowing it to be there without condemning, judging, or resisting it. We simply look at it, observe it, and allow it without trying to modify it. It will run out in due time.

A strong feeling may recur, which means there is more of it to be recognized and surrendered.

In order to surrender a feeling, sometimes it is necessary to start by relinquishing the feeling that is there about the particular emotion (e.g., guilt that “I shouldn’t have this feeling”).

In order to relinquish a feeling, sometimes it is necessary to acknowledge and let go of the underlying payoff of it (e.g., the “thrill” of anger and the “juice” of sympathy from being a helpless victim).

Feelings are not the real self. Whereas feelings are programs that come and go, the real inner Self always stays the same.

Ignore thoughts.
No matter what is going on in life, keep the steadfast intention to surrender negative feelings as they arise.

Make a decision that freedom is more desirable than having a negative feeling.

Choose to surrender negative feelings rather than express them.

Surrender resistance to and skepticism about positive feelings.

Relinquish negative feelings but share positive ones.

Notice that letting go is accompanied by a subtle, overall lighter feeling within yourself.

Relinquishing a desire does not mean you won’t get what you want.

Get it by “osmosis”. Put yourself in the aura of those who have what you want.

“Like goes to like.”

Be aware that your inner state is known and transmitted.

Persistence pays off.

Let go of resisting the technique. Start and end the day with it.

You are only subject to what you hold in mind.

Stop giving the physical disorder a name; do not label it.

The same is true of our feelings.
