An old and powerful story about two monks…



There is an old story about two monks that were on a pilgrimage. One day… on a warm, sunny day…the air was fresh and clean….they heard running water nearby, and with each step the sound came closer and closer. They came to the top of a hill and from there they could see it…they went steadily down towards a beautiful, deep river… Suddenly they noticed…At the edge of the river, a young woman sat weeping because she was afraid to cross the river alone… she begged the two monks to help her. The younger monk turned his back. The members of their order were forbidden to touch a woman.

The older monk picked up the woman without a word and carried her across the river. He put her down on the far side and continued his journey. The younger monk came after him, scolding him and berating him for breaking his vows. He went on and on like this for a long time. The older monk didn´t say a word.

Finally, at the end of the day the older monk turned to the younger one. “I let her go as soon as we crossed the river. Why are you still carrying her?”


To carry old negativity from the past is like poisoning ourselves a little everyday. It takes its toll on our mental, emotional and physical health, and it is not at all worth it. There are tons of different self-help tools out there to help us get rid of the old and move on to a new and brighter here and now. Here and now we sow seeds of the future. And if we then plant the seeds of the past here and now, won´t we get more of the past in our future then?

The time has come fellow travellers…it is safe to allow ourselves to let it go.

I have created a hypnosis session “Cleansing Unwanted feelings and Negative Thinking”. with the intention to help others do exactly that. My gift to you my friend. Click HERE.

Take care of yourself. You deserve to feel good.
