Letting Go

Old BootDuring a session of guided meditation several weeks ago, I was imagining myself fishing in the ocean and was instructed to pull up out of the water “what I needed to know.”  I pulled up an old boot.  After laughing to myself for a moment (because the only time I’ve gone fishing all I caught were sticks and trash), I tried to think what an old boot could signify. The answer instantly came: something that no longer serves its purpose.  This led me to ask what in my life was no longer serving its purpose and again, the answer was instantly granted – my lifestyle and culture blog, May’s Machete. I had already been questioning its value in my life and now I had the confirmation from my higher self and guides that allowed me to let it go.

The next day I sat down and wrote my farewell post, but because that is a blog I’ve been posting regularly M-F, I had a front log, if you will, of blogs waiting to be posted through the 18th, so I didn’t officially retire it until yesterday.  After I wrote the farewell  post, I was hoping to feel the release of that responsiblity and while I felt excited, I didn’t feel that sense of release until this morning.  I woke up and started composing a short story – something I haven’t done since I was writing a collection of stories for my B.A. senior’s thesis – and I could feel new creative energy available to me.

Then as I was walking to work, I felt as if I had let May’s Machete go the way bridal parties used to release hundreds of balloons after the ceremony.  I felt happy knowing that it was out there where people could come acrost it, but having no concrete connection to me any longer.

I’m excited to see what new creative projects my higher self gives me as I work to reclaim the writerly bits of myself that I let go when I gave myself over to depression the summer after I got my B.A.  I’m excited to see where this path will take me.
