A meditation for letting go

It's difficult to let things go. We might cling to the past or fixate on the future, falsely tying our identity to what happened or what could happen. This causes us to form unhealthy habits, repeat the same mistakes or get comfortable playing our role as a victim. But if we just let go — of the past, of the future, of people/thoughts/things that no longer serve us — we can make space for peace in the present.

So, how can yoga help? When we’re holding onto something mentally or emotionally, it manifests itself physically. We might carry tension in the body or we might have trouble breathing. This meditation will help us move some of that stuck energy out so that we can make space for something that better serves us.

All you need is yourself. Make sure you're comfortable and ideally find a quiet place to minimize distractions.

This is my first audio meditation, so let me know what you think! 

If you let go a little, you will have a little peace. If you let go a lot, you will have a lot of peace.
