Releasing Past Baggage

“Don’t let your luggage define your travels.” Shane Koyczan said that at the opening ceremonies for the 2010 Olympics.

Is that what YOU are doing? Are you allowing your luggage determine what you can have in your life? Have you concluded that you can only fit in one pair of shoes, 3 pairs of pants and a blouse because that is all of the room you have? That you can’t have more because it doesn’t fit into the pocket on the left side of the bag?

OK, you realize that we aren’t really talking about luggage here, right? We’re talking about your life. Have you concluded that your life has to be a certain way and a certain size and only very specific things will fit? Or that you have all this stuff that you HAVE to drag keep around with you so there isn’t room for anything else?!

Is that really true? Is it the way you would really like to live your life?

Think about it. What if your life doesn’t have to fit into the little tiny box you have defined for it? What if it doesn’t have to fit in your carry-on luggage and into the overhead compartment on the plane?

What if you can live a life of infinite possibilities?

Wouldn’t that be amazingly wonderful??

OK, maybe you can’t change your past, but you can certainly quit carrying all that baggage around with you! Quit letting it define you!

So often we let our past determine our future. We let our past determine whether or not we CAN do something new. And we let what others have told us is possible and proper determine what we are allowed to do and be.

We narrow our lives down to just a small group choices and we make ourselves believe that that is all that is available, all that is possible for us. We make ourselves believe that is all we can EVER do and be!

And then we tell ourselves that that is OK, that that is enough.

Is that the type of life you’d like to live?

There is another great quote that I really like by Jackson Kiddard.

If you knew you had a choice about what kind of life you could be living, would you choose different?

People want to change it to “differently”, but in fact it is “would you choose different” …  something DIFFERENT! Not the same old stuff or variations on that theme, but SOMETHING DIFFERENT!

You DO have a choice!

You can start by letting go of that baggage!!

You can let go of the things you are carrying around for everyone else … you know, where you have taken things on for them to shoulder their burdens for them, heal things for them … it’s time to let all of that go!


One way is to use the phrase “Return to sender with consciousness attached.”

Now before you say, “I shouldn’t give anything back to someone!!!” consider the fact that people NEED to learn to deal with life themselves. If you continually take their difficulties from them, they JUST KEEP BRINGING IT BACK. So then you both have it! So THAT didn’t really work out for either of you did it?

Plus, the difficulty may be something that other person took from someone else, so by returning it “with consciousness attached” you allow it to just keep going back to whoever originated it! Pretty cool, huh?

In truth, you can’t fix things that aren’t yours, so they just keep hanging around, so returning them to sender is the only way they will ever actually get resolved.

Once you start doing this daily … multiple times a day … it really lightens your load. It gives you freedom to be more of you!

I do this multiple times a day. I usually will say “Everything I have taken on for or from anyone today that isn’t mine, I return it to sender with consciousness attached.” And then I will say the Access Consciousness® clearing statement, just for good measure. Haven’t heard of it? It is “Right and Wrong, Good and Bad, POD, POC, All 9, Shorts, Boys and Beyonds®” and it clears the energy of something out! Read more about it here ( ).

So when you get those things that just keep hanging on; things that you just don’t seem to be able to let go, give the “Return to sender” a try.

And give the Clearing Statements a try. You can view my weekly clearings at and if you like them, you can sign up to receive them every week! How cool is that?

Another great thing to do to really get that energy moving and clearing out is to receive an Access Consciousness Bars® session. It can change your life in amazing ways! Let me know if you’d like a session!

So, are you ready to climb out of that little box you created for your life? Are you ready to dump all that baggage and set yourself free?

And use the Access Consciousness® mantra ten times in the morning and ten times at night to keep that energy moving:

All of Life Comes to Me With Ease and Joy and Glory! ®

Yes my friend, it’s time to set yourself FREE!!
