We don't choose to have difficult emotions. They are not ours to claim. We didn't create them, we can release them, and they don't define us. We can find a little relief in the moment by choosing to not hang on to difficult emotions.

Feel better after only 3 minutes :)
It was a very peaceful and pleasant meditation. It reminded me that feelings don't define who I am; I didn't create them, so I can't claim them. A simple, but very important, message that I need to hear every so often to keep it fresh in my mind. Very thankful!

Letting go
It's very difficult for me to let go of emotions that seem to crop up uncontrollably. I don't quite have the know how yet to be able to take charge of my own mind or just be able to notice my own thoughts without reacting. Hopefully CBT will help with this.

Let go
I should let go of anger and resentment towards all that have hurt me. I should spread love not hate. I should not dwell on those who abandoned me or are not in my life anymore. I should be content with myself and appreciate all the good things in life right now.

Letting it go
My sadness is not me, that I'm not a sad person and it does not reflect my personality. I'm allowed to feel sad but it is not who I am, I'm not a sad person. It is kind to myself to let it go and I love myself more than to give into my sadness and hold onto it.

Letting go
Learning to step back and not be so empathetic towards others and letting go of the emotions involved is hard but we have to for our own sanity. Not my circus not monkeys - so to speak.

Relief of Stress
Before this I had been very nervous and stressed about school exams and disappointing myself and feeling guilty for not being able to get a result that I would want but this session from Aura taught me a lesson about this stress and pressure and told me to breathe, release it and say that this doesn’t define me. Thank you for your love, help and support Aura💗

Temporary peace, long term coping
While taking hold of my negative emotions that come to me when I am thoughtful may only bring some relief, as it cannot remove the cause, this visualization and act of unburdening is helpful. It reminds me the negativity bias I may experience does not define or control me. I can continue this practice and find long term coping and reconciliation with the stressors life will bring.

This Emotion is not me or mine
It’s a liberating experience when separating me (soul) from my emotions. I really love the concept of embracing them, then letting them go (true detachment). This is where real growth takes place. I am thankful for the awesome reminder, that I am not my emotions.

Although I’m feeling drained and disengaged with everything today I find when I feel like this I get irritated and get angry easily. I’m trying each day and that’s what counts this meditation was nice it makes me feel better knowing that when I’m like this it isn’t me and saying that in my mind to my emotions could be something that helps me in the future.

💖Emotions💖Feelings💖Family💖
💞💞💞A very hearty emotion. I give thanks to God for my husband and family. I think them for the blessings that I have my husband and my family. Our youngest daughter was diagnosed with Autism she is 3years old in June 2017. They say early intervention is the best for a small child to succeed in life. My husband and I decided that I would become a stay at home Mom. In order to take her to all of her therapies and we finally got her into a behavioral school. She goes 5days a week different places. Well the kids are in school she goes to school then she goes to her therapies after. She hardly doesn't sleep do to her Autism. so I don't get that much sleep either. She is very smart. The older she gets the harder it is for her to listen. She is the baby of the family and the whole family comes to her rescue. It's frustrating that she is going through so much and I get very emotional. I place everything and Gods hands. She is learning so much. It's really hard that we cannot go out and do things because she is out of control. I don't like justifying the way that my daughter acts when we're out. So that is fluster rating my husband gets into mood and that sets me into a mood. She is so pretty and she can be kind but she can be a brat as well. She is the baby and she has a long road ahead of her that will be challenging but with the support of her parents and family she will make it through. We love her I love her NO matter what and I won't change her just like I won't change any of my children. I love all of them unconditionally NO matter what💕💕💕

Do actions define you?
Three young men went to China and shoplifted from stores. In their statements to the media, they asked that they not be judged on this negative act-that it does not define them. But it’s the feelings that we attach to a behavior that we should not let them hold us down. Those negate feelings need to be released.
R

Lighter
I definitely felt lighter after this meditation. The last couple of days my anxiety has been taking over my thoughts a little more, it gets in the way of happiness sometimes, and it means I don’t enjoy my own company. These feelings don’t define me and they are not me or mine. It’s true, it’s not the real me that would think these thoughts or behave the way the thoughts make me sometimes. I’m better than this and I really need to control them better than I have been.

This is not mine

It’s is one of my greatest gifts. And one of the most draining. I have noticed I am not smooth at releasing emotions that are not mine. Even though they sweep through me just as easily. Making it difficult to release and acknowledge my own emotions. This was a great way to release all emotions within and around me. Thank you!

I would add...
I like the “This is not me; this is not mine” refrain. That’s so helpful to me because I do tend to take on too much and to take it on personally. But I would also add: “this is not for right now” because sometimes the stressful thoughts and feelings I have are me/mine but they’re things I will face directly later that day, or later in the week, or maybe even years down the road—or simply when the concerns expressed in those thoughts actually come to pass...which they may not.

Emotions
Emotions show people how they feel, sometimes a good feeling and others bad. It’s okay to show our emotions, that’s what they are there for and without them we wouldn’t have any sense of feel safe or not. Taking the time and figuring it out can help solve problems, which leads to many significant solutions.

Me and minr
I do not like the emotions I am feeling and would love to let them go, however the so have a power like super glue on me that even when I try to release them they are still there. Maybe not as strong but they are there. I am haunted by not feeling loved and that I am not enough. I love how I feel when I can push those feelings back and be happy, but they creep up with the slightest of happenings. I stayed home I. Bed all day today because I am so lonely and just couldn’t move. I feel a bit of abandonment and lost right now. I really want to let this go and not let it control me.

No soy yo
El soltar las emociones y situaciones, comprender que uno no es una acción en si ni mucho menos el resultado solamente. Se trata de la suma de todo. Sin embargo, las sensaciones no nos deberían de infectar tal si fuera algún virus, por eso es necesario soltar y dejar pasar muchas cuestiones a lo largo del tiempo. Tuve que aprenderlo a base de un corazón hecho añicos. Y sin embargo, sigue, ya que es mucho más grande que cualquier situación.

Let Go & Don’t Feel Guilty About It.
As an empath & someone who is always putting others in the forefront before myself, I learned that I need to let go of things that aren’t fueling me & feeding my energy. Although this may result in some inconvenience to others & the loss of a great community, it is not in my job description to sacrifice my happiness & my rights to meet a demand and be a convenience to others, but not a necessity.

Release as kindness
I deserve to feel good, to feel peace despite the difficult emotions that I feel. By giving myself a moment of release from these feelings, especially ones of guilt that I may feel beholden to, I nurture myself to be better. It is an act of kindness to spend time feeling like I am good person despite my faults and tough realities.

Liberated
That’s how I feel. My biggest challenge is to learn that everyone has a different story behind themselves, thus they love in their own way, they struggle, suffer, laugh and live by their own experience, by the only way they know. I shall not set expectations that high neither for them, nor for myself, as expectations are the root of all heartache. We are all different, no one is either good or bad, such as no situation is either black or white.

I cried
This session was so difficult for me yet its become my new favourite. I found it so difficult to let go whatever negative emotions I had about my circumstances. Who would I be without them? What would I do? Simultaneously, I felt liberated. I had allowed myself to acknowledge that these worries and emotions didn’t have to consume me, I can actually distance myself from them. I need more of these.

Negative thoughts
For me, it’s really really easy to let in negative thoughts. I often over think every little move I make and come up with something negative about it. I can catch my self walking out of dance class and actually say out loud “I’m horrible at this.” People always say no your not, but when I overthink, I just feel like they say what they think I wanted to hear. I’m just a really un-confident person in generally. Almost everything about me has me overthinking and thinking negative thoughts. This meditation kind of helped me release that feeling and it almost lifts you up. It’s just how I needed to end my day & I hope it makes my tomorrow better too.

Releasing...
What a fantastic session! I will be using this more often to release the negative that creeps up and sneaks its way into my life from time to time. “This is Not me, this is Not mine, I release this negative thought, idea, etc.” Negatives just suck the Energy out of you and the more you complain & focus on them the more Energy (& happiness) they steal from you. So now I’ll just say... whoa, The is Not me, this is Not mine, goodby negative thought, I release you! Powerfully simple! ❤️✌🏼

Bye Bye to negative emotions that aren't mine!
What is the difference between letting go v releasing? I then remember a mentor once told me to eat the meat and throw away the bones. Except the positive and reject the negative by giving a Thank You to both adjectives. Don't allow negativity to be dump into your lap or (mind) you aren't a garbage disposal. To let go is rejecting the thoughts of negativity from others and releasing is a positives thoughts to others while you're freed from the restraints and confinement in your mind. I learned doing the productive years of letting go can and always will be a positive choice as you reach the next level of life journey. So no matter how many times you let go and say bye bye to the negativity that is not yours always strengthen your mind to continue to release the positive energy in the atmosphere with Love that is yours!

Finding freedom from the push/pull forces that keep us stuck
I learned that freeing oneself from emotionally-triggered patterns or forces of desire and aversion that keep us stuck, becomes easier when we create some space. If we can wedge enough time and space between the trigger or the feeling, and the reaction, we can reclaim some of the power we give away so easily out of habit or fear.

Don’t store the frustration...
I tend to carry the frustrations of the day. Whether it is work, family, friends, loved ones, or other things like addled drivers, oblivious doctors, inept service personnel - the tension and stress is the same. It is a boulder of increasing weight on the back of my neck and shoulders. This medication was specific in directing me to acknowledge it but let it go (or at least as much as I am able)! I think with practice, I’ll be able to use this well before there is substantial pain!! Love 💕 💕 it!!! Thanks, Aura!!

The frustrations of living are not “me” but they are a part of my every day life. Reclassifying them as something outside of myself - say merely witness instead of something I have to schlepp for who knows how long. This too shall pass. ✌️

Let go
I learned that it is ok to feel frustrated and anxious but it’s also good to give yourself time to clear your mind from all your problems. It is also very important to keep in mind that your problems don’t define you. Great session.

Rewarding
Hard work this one, took a lot of concentration but was also very rewarding to get my head arround the fact that I CAN let go

Needed This
I’ve been holding on to so much hurt and anger. I have too much trauma to fully release them now, but to let my pain and sadness go for even a few minutes makes me feel lighter

I learned that we are not a product of our emotions and we are not defined by how we feel

Release
I imagined myself on the edge of a cliff and the negative emotions were little origami figures that i let float off the edge. This was surprisingly relaxing and I actually did feel lighter afterwards

I felt calm letting go off the sadness and its problems. I noticed the sadness just floating away, to never be seen again. I learned how to let go of the sadness and stress.

calm
I felt relieved letting go of all my stress and sadness, even just for a minute. Instead of “the tender thing you can release,” I pictured my stress and sadness as a cloud, just floating away.

Balloons
Float high in the sky in a far away place. Each balloon carries away a worry or fear for me. I slowly detach from my emotions. This is not me or mine.

Release the bad emotions
I need to remember that these negative emotions and feelings are not me, and they are not mine and they are to be released from long body

emotions
negative emotions are going to come and go and you must remember those you’ve made it through, past emotions, and emotions that are yet to come. being this age is full of first times and first times aren’t always the best. this is a time of lessons, smiles, and tears but all will allow me to grow and become a better version of myself.

Happy New Years. This has been a year of struggle for me and my family. Self inflicted struggle if I may add. It is relieving to know I can separate myself from the person that was becoming. These emotions of stress, worry, and hardship will never leave but I will handle them so much better Sending love

Not me or mine
I loved this meditation. I’m naturally a very emotional and sensitive person, so I need to be reminded to let the emotions flow out, and to ride the like a wave to the shore until they crash and fizzle our into the sand. It was a nice lesson to apply this morning as I was getting tied up in an anxious and stressed whirlpool. Now I feel much better and ready to do one mediation for self healing! 💕🥰🌸🌿 thank you!

My step sister just broke down crying in our living room. It was so odd for me I’ve never seen her cry like that before I didn’t know what to do I just wanted to take that feeling away from her. Said she felt numb all the time and that she constantly wanted to hurt herself. I wish I could help her more

Noticed and released the anxieties and stresses that are not mine. Reminded that my emotions are responses to stimuli that I can control.

Feel free!
I loved this meditation. I am dealing with many difficult situations all at once...I have been taking on a lot of negative emotions and thoughts. Emotions that have no ability to move me forward (anger, bitterness, worthlessness, anxiety, depression). The thoughts too, that play in my mind are just from lies I have internalized from my past that play like a broken record when I am weakened. It was so nice, so powerful to say: this is not me; this is not mine and to also remind myself who I really am.

I just read a similar meditation to my son this morning
I need to heart listen,not teach. I was reading it, even going through the motions of doing the exercise, but because I was focused on him learning, I forgot that I too must always be learning. I needed to stop and be a part of the world WITH Max not a teacher of the world TO him.

I'm currently dealing with a newly diagnosed illness. This made me feel good to finally release.
I learned that it's okay to let go and release those emotions we hold deep.

Letting go
This is something important to keep coming back to: letting go. I need to keep practicing letting go. We accumulate so much mind clutter. I must learn to let it go and not indulge the cycles of thinking.
