Cavern graphic for articles and meditations on Releasing the PastTo be truly happy, one has to let go of the dark recesses in our mind that harbor resentments, fears, guilt, etc. Some meditative processes encourage you to befriend these emotions and thus transform them. Others lead you through a "letting go" scenario where the dark energies are release and you are set free.

Whichever method works for you, you will be changing, healing, and discovering how to embrace the new you and the new experiences of life that you will be encountering.

The Past: Over & Done With!

The past is gone... unless we force it to remain by focusing our attention on the resentments and recriminations that we may have. To be truly at peace and live a life of harmony and joy, the past must be left behind. You must fully step into the present moment and realize that only here and now exists. Everything else is "not here" and "not now".

The articles and meditations in this section will assist you in the process of releasing the past and moving into being fully in the moment. When you are fully in the moment, you are open to all the wondrous experiences and discoveries that Life has in store for you. Arthur Lytle offers a great meditation to help you in Setting Yourself Free.

HOW TO CHANGE

Louise L. Hay

All the theory in the world is useless unless we know how to apply it and make a change. Sometimes when we try to release a pattern, the whole situation seems to get worse for a while. This is not a bad thing. It is a sign that the situation is beginning to move. Our affirmations are working, and we need to keep going.

Clearing the Ties that Bind

It frees up energy that has been holding stressful...,
