How to Let Go and Be Glad

So, for the Everyday Tarot forecast, I said, “Let go and be glad.” Lilliput asked a really good question.

“Any ideas on how to go about doing this?????????”

I know, right? It’s not always easy.

Remember, one of the cards I was looking at was the Hierophant. That would suggest to me emulating your teachers, calling upon your faith or path, whatever it is. The Hierophant is also associated with Taurus, so physical comforts are helpful.

For me, I pray, specifically turning over my worries to God/the Universe/the Angels/Ganesh/my guides, just whomever I am moved to call upon at the time.

If it have trouble getting it out of my head, I write it out. Journal, write a letter to the spirits, write a letter to the person whom I’m having trouble with (always in the 3rd person, actually, like sending off the energy in an energetic message).

If I’m strung out by the stress, I never go wrong with  the Taurus-approved nap option!

As far as being glad, one of the fastest, easiest ways to raise my vibration is spend some time working on a gratitude list. Yes, I know it sounds trite, but listing out as many things as I can find to be thankful for in the moment, spending a few minutes really FEELING that thankfulness, helps tremendously.

Try it, you’ll see what I mean.

I also find music is a wonderful aid in lifting my vibration. And baths or showers. I set my intention to wash that gunk right off me!

And meditation. And reading. Those are some of my favorites.

How do YOU let go and be glad?


  1. Thanks for the advice

  2. This is excellent advice and I’ve used each one of these tactics.
    There are times when I get overstimulated (electronics are mainly the culprit) and I have to unplug. This has been especially true during this Pisces season. I’m just really susceptible it seems.
    Spending time in nature helps. And, I’ve also realized that spending time with babies (thankfully I have access to a few ) and animals also helps. I’ve even been known to go to the pet store for therapy.
    Do something good for someone. This helps me tremendously. And, it’s a double pay off! Helps you, helps them..share a smile. I’ve found the best way of going about this is to do something anonymously. It really is a great thing!
    I can’t say enough about the healing power of water. I’ve found myself soaking in the tub several times over the last month or so. Then, pampering myself afterward with lotion and fuzzy cozy clothes and fresh clean blankets always wraps things up nicely.
    I can also reset my mood with music and sometimes a good movie. I’m finding that music is extremely influential right now. The right soothing track can change my mood entirely.

  3. Thanks Dixie for taking the time to do a post as an answer. Its a wonderful list!

  4. Baths are definitely at the top of my list! And I’m still including my ‘herbal routine’ ever since you talked about it. (Not every bath, but most.)

    • Awesome that it’s still part of your repertoire and helps, Baluga. A good reminder to me to mix up some more. Will have to write about this, too…
