Letting Go Gives Us Freedom
For centuries, indigenous peoples used smoke as a symbol of their thoughts and prayers rising to the Great Spirit. Engaged couples have also released the past in a burning bowl before taking their vows.
Whatever the circumstances, the purpose of the ceremony is to shift consciousness. It’s about becoming still, naming what you want to release, and letting it go.
When we let go and let God, we experience freedom. Letting go opens us to the power of inspiration, insight, wisdom, and love.
