Letting Go Of The Past - How To Get Over The Past In Minutes

20110 ratings | 867793 views
Letting Go Of The Past - An easy, simple process for how to release past trauma right now. The Ultimate Life Purpose Course - Create Your Dream Career: http://www.actualized.org/life-purpose-course Leo's Top 140 Self Help Books http://www.actualized.org/books Full Video Transcript Here: http://www.actualized.org/articles/letting-go-of-the-past Video Summary: We've all had experiences we'd like to forget. While past experiences can be instructive, re-living them and nursing the festering wound of a past event adds nothing good to your life. Once you've learned the lesson to be had from that experience, you can choose to let it go. The past, while real at one time, is now just a concept, as is the future. The only time you have is now. Don't let something in the past rob you of your present productivity and happiness. Choose to let it go and live. When you have trouble letting go of the past, it's typically because you keep bringing it back into your life. Identify the memory that besieges you the most. Use guided meditation to let it go and replace it with the present. During the guided meditation, you dwell on the present, which forces the past out of your consciousness. Repeated sessions of guided meditation will teach you how to deprive the past of the life you've inadvertently been breathing back into it. Designing a more positive present that's too busy to dwell on the past can help push it out of your life. So can journaling, introspection, and counseling or coaching. Make the choice to stop reviving the past.

jealous jessie (16 days ago)
but if you're just trying to find a project to work on to distract negative thoughts from the past, isn't that against the principle of being in the present which is what you're emphasising?

You are minimizing the pain trauma does to a person. You can't just let go of the past in a couple of minutes. It takes a lot of hard work n therapy n talking about your pain to be able to let it go. And u will never ever forget that pain ever. But it is possible to live a happy life. But it is not possible to live a happy life if u pretend that it never existed. It is very clear that u never experienced deep trauma. So why not talk about stuff u can relate with instead of stuff u have no idea what u r saying. You are just giving ppl false hopes that will never help. U are not facing reality. Reality is trauma takes years of hard work n it can't be forgotten in a couple of minutes. You are just spreading false hopes n getting the message across that pain is not an important part of who u are today. So I would suggest you have a little more empathy and a kinder heart instead of that heartless don't care attitude I saw from watching your video.

As much as I get and agree what Leo message is about letting go of the past - I think its not that simple, felt it was reckless to say I don't care about someone's really traumatic events and his answer to deal with was simply meditation that anyone could teach.

I started smoking weed mid-way through the summer-holidays. It eventually got the best of me, and made me more isolated from my girlfriend. She even warned me about weed, since she had seen some of her own family members get caught up in it. She was so into me during the holidays, yet i was only into weed.. It is by biggest regret of my live, because 1-2 months later now, we have broken up because i became so distant because of it. Next weekend i'm having a nights out with the boys, where i will meet her, i plan on telling her where it went wrong and how much i regret it. When i'm going to tell it to her, i won't beg for her to come back, i will stay humble, admit my mistakes and see where the path takes us. We were supposed to congratulate our 3 year anniversary the very next day after we were going out, it hurts so fucking much sometimes. We were each other's best friends, and still love each other. We even broke up a year ago, yet we got back together at that time. I just feel so much fucking guilt and shame right now. I'm sorry if the message is confusing, i thought of tips & tricks to handle these things, and stumpled across this video, i will watch it now and make an attempt at moving forward <3

Something I’m trying to let go in the past is how I use to be when I was a kid I’m to ashamed to say it but I’ve changed it’s pretty much like I’m a New Person and I am and I can never be more proud of my success with my body and my mentality so fuck the past only the present and the future

But what if you still live with the consequences of your mistakes in the past? So you are reminded of it every day.

I can't get over my middle school I had so much friends there and it was really good and I LOVED going to school.Now I'm in high school and I just don't like it,it takes so much of my time and I do not want to spend my youth just studying.I want action,I wanna live like a young dude should live.Idk why I chose this high school anyway.Fuck this.I gotta calm down I think.
Antje Ketelers (1 month ago)
It's not about dwelling or thinking about your past in my book, it's about on an unconscious level, dealing with patterns and beliefs that get in your way in the present and future time. But I find the exercise very helpful, just listend to it and I'm going to try it later on tonight. Thank you for this post!

i dont think anyone will see this but my past was sooo strange. thinking about it makes me cringe to the core and its been a hindrance whenever it randomly pops out in my head. One thing from my past that i hate the most is the most recent, my ex “best friend” which then i thought was my hero, turned out to be the thing that haunts me now. let’s just say our whole relationship for three years which i devoted everything to, was a lie. theres a lot to the story but thinking/seeing anything related to the past, ESPECIALLY her makes me feel like vomiting and i just cant take it anymore. it’s been 6 months, she moved on completely and never texted me once.. yet im stuck here with all the bullshit. im so sick of this and i hope this video will help me in some way... I feel like disappearing completely and come back with a new identity (im serious) different name different everything. Idk this whole thing is so weird and Im hoping that once i move out I can leave everything behind and never remember them

Give it a little more time. It took me about a year and a half to fully get over a traumatic relationship.. I had doubts that the pain would ever go away, but it finally has recently

I just saw a Ted talk that said 92% of what we fear or think may happen, never does.  So less than 1 out of 12 chances it happens, that's pretty favorable odds.  :-)  Be fearless!!

To keep it short and simple. I have trusting issues. I feel like I let go, that I make myself gullible to more dishonest, misbehaving, & selfish ppl to take advantage of me. Leaving me disappointed in people, and making me lose my faith in the goodness in people. I'm not at all a perfect person. I tend to be careless, and have even been told that even when I'm physically present, my mind tends to wonder off in many directions because I am anxious/bored. I'm a complicated person with some complicated problems & ppl in my life. It's hard to make someone understand.

Very true when you said if you keep thinking about the bad things that happened to you over and over again, your keeping the negative behaviors alive. Your very inspirational, thank you for taking the time to make these videos. Peace and Light :)

When a certain person is not good for you and you keep thinking and thinking about going out and looking for that person anyway (how do you not think about it anymore?).

Hey dude, you might want to change your logo. Probably an honest mistake, but look it up. It has a meaning that I hope you weren't aware of. Just looking out.
iluvfigs47 (3 months ago)
you didn't mention: Abuse, from parents and marriages. This is more than a job loss, or a dream unrealized, or even a death, it is very traumatic. if the abuser started when you were a helpless baby and child; controlling you punishing, shaming castigating and hurting you, destructive with zero love or empathy from any family member; this is beyond the norm of mere 'baggage', isn't it? what do e do to recover, let go, from a lifetime of trauma, which brought about c-PTSD.
Mattison Riley (3 months ago)
Thank u. This really helped me a lot. Thank a million times. I feel like i have a little hope now from u to move on and let go. Ur words r inspirational.
