There are moments when you must find the courage to release the weight of those who bring you down, even if your heart still holds love for them. To let go of someone close is a sacred act of self-preservation and personal growth, a deep spiritual journey that opens the door to both healing and awareness.
Love has many faces, and sometimes it manifests in complex relationships that challenge our very essence. You may find yourself entangled with individuals who, despite your affection for them, drain your energy and hinder your growth. Their presence becomes a heavy burden, obscuring your path and stifling your spirit.
To let go is not an act of cruelty or indifference; rather, it is an act of love towards yourself as you recognise that you need to be surrounded by those who unilaterally support you, and encourage you to blossom. You are not erasing their memories or diminishing the love you feel for them. It is, however, an acknowledgement that the relationship no longer serves your highest good and that you now need to grow beyond the constraints of unconscious and unsupportive dynamics. Of course this path will not be a linear one. It is a path that undulates as you oscillate between grief and relief, between longing and acceptance, hope and realisation.
But this path is also one wherein you will unearth your own worthiness and will support you to reclaim your power, redefine your boundaries, learn to protect your energy and in time, to help you foster environments that constructively cultivate your growth.
I hold a space for you today that you can draw forth the courage to let go of those who no longer align with your growth, as well as honouring the love you have for yourself in drawing a line in the sand. I leave you with a healing prayer to Archangel Rapha-el:
“Archangel Rapha-el, I call upon your divine presence and loving energy. With your guidance, help me find the strength to open my heart and grant me clarity in matters of love and relationships. Please help me to hear the wisdom of my heart and guide me towards healing and understanding.
I invite you to surround me with your emerald-green healing light. I open myself to heal from any past wounds or pain that may be blocking my ability to listen to my heart’s wisdom and I ask you to assist me in releasing any fears or doubts that hinder my ability to trust myself and others in matters of the heart.
Please infuse my heart with love, compassion, and forgiveness. Help me to discern what is in alignment with my highest good and to let go of anything that no longer serves me. Guide me towards relationships that are supportive, nurturing, and filled with genuine connection.
Archangel Rapha-el, I surrender my concerns and worries to you. I trust in your wisdom and guidance. Thank you for your loving presence and assistance as I embark on this journey of listening to the wisdom of my heart.
May this prayer manifest in accordance with the highest good of all involved. Amen.”
