How To Start Over

Written by Maria Flynn

To properly start over, you have to also let go and make strategic decisions moving forward.

Let me explain…

I’m often asked how to “let go” of past trauma, painful emotions, guilt, and memories. My answer is that letting go is spiritual practice but I also remind people there are 2 parts to letting go.

You see, an equally important (and POWERFUL) part of letting go is deciding what you will choose to bring back in,

Letting Go is Also Your New Start

You see, letting go creates energetic space and so you must be highly aware about what you intend to bring back in.

Letting go is an end of a cycle (and by default means a new beginning for you to START OVER).

Starting over is a perfectly NORMAL part of your life cycle. It’s not limited to your age or circumstance. When you embrace this then you can look at life with EYES WIDE OPEN!

That means, you can hear and see your life with true raw honesty.

  • You will lose a parent one day.
  • You’ll lose family and/or friends and learn of those who simply don’t like you (for whatever reason).
  • You might discover that the love of your life has cheated on you.

These kinds of things happen to everyone at some point in their life. You’re not alone.  Still, there is Divine reason and timing for everything in your life.

Your life is your spiritual practice and designed to work in harmony with Universe.

When the sun sets, she rises again.
After very winter there is spring.
A new cycle—a new beginning—starting over—happens in nature and you are a part of nature.

Whatever you’re experiencing, (once the dust settles) the only thing left to do is to start over—to begin a new cycle, a new season, a fresh start!

It’s not easy, but to be sure, through your tough experience, you learned (there’s no way around that unless you sleep your life away).

No matter what, your new cycle is one that starts with you being SO MUCH SMARTER. Own that!

You’re stronger you than you were before and so it stands to reason that for the next cycle—you want more and you want it better

That’s not selfish, it’s part of the evolution for the greater good. The Universe is all about INFINITE ABUNDANCE and she stands ready to deliver!

Since the beginning of time, the Universe works in perfect harmony, and when there’s too much disharmony, the Universe has no other choice but to restore it.

When challenge shows up in your life happens, do your best not to miss the opportunity to bring harmony back into your life. It’s helping your evolution.

To support yourself and enhance this next cycle, I encourage you to keep life simple and soulful (so you can stay connected to your life experience as a whole).  It’ll help you define what’s next for you!


Come back home (house and body).

Clear the clutter energy by removing the clutter in your home and clean up your eating habits, too! Removing clutter (low vibrating energy) creates miracles because it allows energy to flow and rise with more ease!

Clearing your space makes room (energetic space) for the next life cycle and your next adventure!  Remember, your outer world is a reflection of your inner world. And… Your inner world is a reflection of your outer world. When you’re not sure how to move forward, start simple. Start with decluttering.

Katrina Mayer, author of Wholarian Vision: How To Stay Connected To Everything and The Mustard Seed Way said…

Get rid of clutter and you just might find that it was
blocking the door you’ve been looking for.”

See your life with raw honesty.

In other words, accept what’s in front of you above and beyond what you “wish it could be” or “could’ve been” (that keeps you in resistance, or tight energy). The more you shift out of wishing the more you stop fighting against what is in front of you now.

By looking at your own life as it is (with raw honesty), you’ll be able to stay more present and it’ll help you stay grounded as you explore how to start over. Honesty is something you can work with! Honesty helps you make better decisions moving forward.

Ask yourself, What’s the opportunity here?

And then…

Analyze and Adjust.

Access greater awareness by analyzing what went wrong and then choose wisely how to adjust before moving forward.

This is not about obsessing over mistakes and mishaps and miscommunication. Instead, analyze them so you can adjust your actions in the next cycle.  Learn from them!

Ask yourself…

How can I improve the way I show up?
– Looking back, did I innately know
before the mistake that something was “off” and therefore I didn’t acknowledge my intuition?  Recall what you felt so you’ll be more aware of it again in the next cycle and it can better serve you. (Read that again, it’s a game-changer).

Decide how you will start over (include goals, dreams, and desires). Starting over includes making important decisions. It’s interesting to note that the word decision comes from the latin word decisio which means to “cut off”.

Bob Proctor, of The Secret says…

Making a decision is about “cutting off” choices – cutting you off from some other course of action. Now that may sound a little severe and limiting, but it’s not. It’s liberating.

Starting over means you set the terms moving forward.
Starting over (beginning a new cycle) is a natural part of your evolution.
Starting over means making high vibrating energetic decisions moment to moment.

Let your challenge serve you well and the next time you have to start over you can tap into more MAGIC and MIRACLES!

Until next time…
