52. Letting Go, the Art of Living — 11 Comments

  1. Hi Mirelle

    I do find I am missing doing the routine some nights during the month schedule. I’ve added on a few extra days but not sure if this counts. I do feel the routine is good as it clears out old memories and helps one live in the present.

    I will try doing it on the abdomen as I do ruminate and ‘hold on’ to fears and worries which cause a lot of distress. I recently felt pain in my left hip area down towards knee and not sure if it’s ‘wear and tear’. I have Osteoarthritis in neck and lumbar spine which might be aggravating legs now.

    Thank you very much for devising this routine as I do feel it all helps balance our lives.

    • Dear Mary,
      Sure, these extra days count! Don’t worry too strictly about the 1 month period. See it as a tool you can use for the rest of your life. If you miss a day, that doesn’t mean the method doesn’t work. Please have a look at the frequently asked questions about this. And in one of my researches in the Netherlands rheumatism was ‘the blocking of healing force’. This means that people with rheumatism are actually healers who stop their healing energy from flowing. Does this make sense to you? The pain in your legs may mean your healing energies are starting to flow again. Just keep doing the MIR-Method longer, for as long as you still have pain issues.
      Good luck!

    • Dear Catalina,
      The loss of a child is an enormously unbearable kind of grief. I don’t know if it will ever leave your system. However, if the grief after a whole year, is still hindering you in every way, you may want try to lessen the grief. And trying to let go of it for several hours a day, so you can pick up your life.

  2. The MIR-Method helps me to cope with my mothers Alzheimer Desease. Detach Father, Detach Mother was, surprisingly, not about letting go but to free myself from the child who needs father and mother figures to stay alive. I am much more relaxed with people in my every day life!

    I will give this step with the hand on the abdomen a try and really hope, letting go of my fear of letting go may happen 🙂

    Thank you so much! Sylvia

    • Dear Sylvia,
      Great to hear from you that it feels so good. I am very glad you are freeing yourself in this way!
      Good luck!

  3. great article, I will try this for sure :).
    I wanted to to suggest an App for the MIR-Method to remind to do the process, to keep track if I did do morning and night and to keep track of the days I did the process. And to have easy access to the steps and directions ….I tried the MIR method for 3 weeks and tried to keep track for the full 4 weeks but I would forget when to do it…eg, I would forget to do it in the morning so I would do it when I remembered but then at night I had to think again if I had done it once already lol. Somedays got busy so I would miss a day….so I would start up again. You never know but maybe the MIR-Method cleared my thoughts for the idea of this App??? Anyway, thought it would help others and since smart phones are popular now and with people loving apps, why not one for the MIR-Method. and it would generate a source of income from ads while keeping the process still free for people to learn. Hope this helps 🙂

    • Dear Linda,
      Thank you so much for your idea! We have been working on an app for the MIR-Method, but up till now we have had more important projects to spend money on. There needs to be much more funding to be able to produce an app. I hope maybe next year we will manage. Meanwhile just print the 9 steps and hang them everywhere in your house: beside your bed, in the bathroom, on your mirror, on the fridge.
      That way it is a little bit easier to remember to do it.
      Good luck!
      Greetings, Mireille
