“To experience emotional freedom, we must accept, surrender, and let go of our wounds. We must be willing to take responsibility for what we’re holding on to, which is usually a hurt or pain from the past that leaves us feeling victimized.
The Code of Emotional Freedom calls on us to let go of “I’m right,” “You’re wrong,” “I’m good,” and “You’re bad” so that we can stand fully in our power. It calls on us to take responsibility for our lives and then, with grace and ease, to let go of our excuses, reasons, justifications, and righteousness.
Now, that doesn’t mean we’re suddenly deaf, dumb, and blind to the impact that others have had on us. Becoming accountable doesn’t mean letting the other person off the hook. As my friend Marianne Williamson always says, the universe will deal with them.
But taking responsibility does guarantee that we will reclaim the power we have given away and regain our freedom to glide through the universe unobstructed by old beliefs or other people.
Holding back from taking full responsibility is common to all of us. Our wounded human ego wants to pin the blame on someone else—anyone else!
