Change your life - 5 Reasons why you should release past negative experiences

Whatever regrets you have of the past, whatever the hurt, whatever the disappointment, it's time to release it and move on. But why should you release the past negative experiences? Why should you let go? These 5 reasons will show you why releasing negative experiences is essential to change your life.

1) The past becomes the fabric of tomorrow's lifestyle

By holding on to your past hurts and disappointments, you are allowing the thoughts of the past experiences to create your lifestyle tomorrow. They influence your emotional well-being and therefore manifest in your reality as recreated events from past experiences.

2) The past weighs you down

Holding on to past negative experiences weigh you down emotionally, so you're not free to move on from the negative experience. It slowly eats away at you from the core, defiles your inner sanctuary and removes you from a place of inner peace.

3) Experience the new

When you release the past negative experiences, you free yourself to engage in new positive experiences. You are therefore not mentally preoccupying your time with things that don't add value to your life. But you can now use your imagination, thoughts and emotions to attract to you enriching life experiences.

4) Shift into positive emotional gear

Negative situations tend to bring along with them negative emotions. However, if you release the negative emotion, you'll shift into the positive emotional gear of joy and peace and intentionally stir up these feeling. This positive emotional energy field draws into you more of the positive experiences causing the negativity to lose its hold on you.

5) Learn from past negative experiences

For every experience we ever encounter, whether we perceive the experience as positive or not, contains a valuable life lesson. The window through which we view these experiences will determine if the outcome leaves a positive or negative impact on our lives.

Decide now that you'll take your negative experiences of the past and turn them into stepping stones to change and enhance your life.
