Dump That Baggage

The other night before bed as I was listening to my favorite Angel Card Reader Michelle P. on YouTube, I was struck with this image of someone struggling to let go of something material. Immediately, the image of the traveler who overpacked their luggage became super clear. And I had to laugh.

The reason? This is me and so many of y’all. We are so content with being that Weary Traveler that we are willing to miss the journey of a lifetime because we (vehemently) refuse to throw away something that can be replaced with another AMAZING thing!

In life, we hold on to problems and issues that have already been solved (again, I am SUPER guilty of this). We fear that we didn’t get the right answer from the lesson and/or we did not like the outcome. Instead of accepting things as they are, I’m talking really accepting it, we continue to play our “hurts” over and over and over and over and over adammgain. Now, this isn’t to minimize the very real aggression against our person that can happen, it’s to point out that many times, we are the very roadblock to our own blessings.

Another image that popped into my head is that of a fisherman who caught too much for his little boat. As he starts to row toward shore, he realizes his boat is sinking. Rather than throw back some of the fish, he attempts to save his boat by using a pail to remove water from the boat and put it back in the ocean.

So what’s the message? Like the weary traveler and the fisherman, we are willing to forego amazing experiences because we want to hold on to what’s in front of us AND what’s inside of us. We’ll be taken care of, not just during the trip, but at our destination. But we refuse to realize that and try to rearrange our baggage to trick “karma” into thinking we are ready for the something amazing. Yet that’s not how it works.

So our lesson? Let it go. Those problems have been handled and we are already healed. Don’t be afraid to throw away what you don’t need because you are comfortable with it always being there.

I say this with love – LET IT GO! And watch, as my Mom says, it get greater later.
