Let Your Past Go
Although it is an important part of you and of your life and life lessons - it need not control you any longer. This card comes up when there is something from your past that still needs to be acknowledged, accepted and released.
Repeating energy patterns or people may be showing up for you, giving you opportunities and chances to experience things over again and consider options or find new / different solutions - but sometimes we are unable or unwilling to see the lesson presented to us... leaving us feeling hard done by, overwhelmed, exhausted and confused - then the cycle repeats... as we haven't felt empowered or enlightened at any stage as to WHAT the lesson even is or HOW to move through it.
Expansion and growth require first a relinquishing of control and a willingness to release old ways of judging, thinking, seeing and feeling. Asking yourself some questions can be a helpful process. What am I feeling? Where am I feeling it? Where / when have I felt this before? Do I still need it? Can I choose to let this go?
Forgiveness of self is vital. Forgiveness of others is important and doesn't mean condoning or allowing a behaviour or action. It simply means you are no longer allowing it to dictate your reactions, action or in action.
Excerpt from the card
"The burden of carting your past around has made you weary, Dear One. It's time to set this burden down. Keep only the lessons and the love, and leave everything else behind. You don't want it or need it, and it's now gone."
