Dreams of Family - Letting Go

I was born into a large family. One of 6 children. Yet I was never really part of this family. I was a Christian for many years, so I could feel like I was part of a family. Religion didn't keep working for me. I have an offspring but I am not considered family.

But lately, I've been praying out into the universe from the deepest part of who I am and "to the totality of all that is" and think I have found an important key to help me overcome panic problems...by simply letting go!


"Letting go means we stop trying to do the impossible--controlling that which we cannot--and instead, focus on what is possible-which usually means taking care of ourselves. And we do this in gentleness, kindness, and love, as much as possible". * Melody Beattie

"Consider the trees which allow the birds to perch and fly away without either inviting them to stay or desiring them never to depart. If your heart can be like this, you will be near to the way". *Zen Buddhist teaching

Thank GOD you are overcoming!
I am also, and I too know that letting go and allowing GOD to fill our empty broken buckets of lives with His love, as poured through us onto others, is the key.
God Bless you with love & peace

I'm already seeing other areas of my life that need for me to be letting go..

Things for example, letting go of things..
Getting rid of papers and other things that remind me of unhealthiness, all sorts of things..

I haven't gotten to the point where I can see myself being controlling more so really subject to others but I'm sure as I grow in this sphere of letting go, I'll see how I played a part in it all by not letting go... that alone is an issue with control...

Thank you so much for your insights, it's good to have a head start so I'm not taken by surprise as much...

Good Post! For me learning to 'Let Go' has becoming an ongoing lesson!! As soon as I have achieved it one area of my area - up pops another circumstance or situation in which I get to practice again!!
There truly is so much freedom in the end result though. Not to mention how much happier people are with ME!! ..not interfering, trying to not control, trying not to manipulate, trying not to force someone into behaving the way I think they should.
When it comes right down to it, I have my hands full just trying to take care and be responsible for my OWN behavior! ;) Full time job! HAH!
Thanks for your contributions Kathleen. I like the reference to the tree and birds. Very nice.
