Navigating Necessary Change

By Anntionet: At some point or another in your lifetime, you have probably heard, or might in the future hear, that  there is an art to the act of letting go. This could be true depending upon perspective, but letting go can sometimes (and oftentimes does) come into direct conflict with the very human compulsion of gaining  and maintaining control.

Helping to balance these against each other is the idea that there are equally appropriate times and circumstances to practice forms of control, and personal forms of letting go. This balance can be made a little easier to achieve with intentional mindfulness and practice.  


The concept of change, particularly when what could change is out of our influence or control, can be exceptionally difficult and downright terrifying. This fear can be compounded when it is in direct conflict with a need for familiarity and stability, which might make the concept of freely letting go that much  harder to openly embrace. What suggests help in addressing this inner turmoil experienced when faced with a necessary change is when purposeful action is taken to the letting go of whatever is meant to leave at that time while having faith and understanding that this circumstance is meant to allow more  space to come to be so that receiving can take place.  

The universe does not just take away; what is “taken away” or let go of is always “replaced” with something else within consciousness, if not within reality. This applies whether the removal or the replacement is fought against or not, although intentional resistance will likely affect the overall impact of the change itself. Let us say for instance that something of immense value to you gets broken by accident, due to an action that was out of your control. The value of the item was one of emotional gain,  as it reminded you of a meaningful moment in time. Your form of control (through choice) is now gained in your response to this situation; do you keep the item and fix it? Do you keep the item, even if you think it is unfixable? Do you throw the item away?  

A form of intentional resistance to the necessary change brought about by this accident would be to keep it. Doing so, then brings about more forms of control, like using it as a “fix-it” project. This may even allow you to gain new knowledge about the item or a new bond with a “fix-it” friend, therefore attaching new meaningful memories to the experience of the item. The change will still be there, just manifested in a unique way.  

Perhaps you would combine intentional resistance with letting go by keeping it, not taking any further actions with it, and letting go by practicing forgiveness towards the circumstances that broke it. Or  maybe you just let go by throwing the object away and replacing it with a framed photograph of it, while contemplating placement strategies for the items in your home. You might rearrange your environment, and suddenly you come across the exact same item in a window display.  

Practicing the art of letting go can help manage the stress levels of our daily and long-term lives. Balancing this with a more whole understanding of how personal choices will always provide us with a  sense of control, whether we choose to see the choice at that moment or not, can lessen and release densely packed stress energy within our bodies, minds, and life force.  

The more we understand control and navigate necessary changes, the more we may realize that we always have control.
