Honoring Yourself and Your Feelings
“Be still, and lay aside all thoughts of what you are and what God is; all concepts you have learned about the world; all images you hold about yourself. Empty your mind of everything it thinks is either true or false, or good or bad, of every thought it judges worthy, and all the ideas of which it is ashamed. Hold onto nothing. Do not bring with you one thought the past has taught, nor one belief you ever learned before from anything. Forget this world, forget this course, and come with wholly empty hands unto your God.” ~ ACIM
So, last week I talked about the art of surrendering and touched on some activities you could do in your life to get started. This week I will be talking about one of the BEST surrender activities, writing universal letters. Universal letters is a great way to honour your emotions while releasing old memories, negative thoughts, emotions or attachments that may be stuck in your auric field. Why, you ask? Well your auric field is magnetic, and like a magnet, it constantly draws us towards and away from things in life (people, situations, etc). Ka bodies are what we call the energy duplicate of the physical body. The female auric field is usually magnetic and the male is electric (but not always. I will explain more when I talk in about auric fields and chakras in a later post). Our auric fields are constantly drawing us to others, that match the internal content within. They charge and renew our own auric fields as well as each others as well as drawing us forward. Thus creating and connecting us to our world and experiences through our physical bodies. Through the process of writing universal letters, you can assist in the cleansing process as there should always be actions that compliment the mind, body or spirit. It’s important to do work on all planes to know ourselves at all levels and to explore, plus uncover our deepest nature, our soul. Also this process helps us to surrender and admit to ourselves when we don’t know, therefore bringing love to this part of ourselves and acceptance into any experience happening in the moment. This is one of the best gifts of any surrender process to love yourself at all levels and to expand our definitions or expected perimeters of love.
Think of your emotions, thoughts, and memories as a computer program within this magnetic system. If you constantly focus on pain or the past, or if you are stuck in an obsessive loop of worry or longing, then you’re programming your future to contain more of these things; you are magnetizing these things into your energy field. In a nutshell, if you are constantly thinking about experiences you wish to never happen again EVER….you will create more of them (Oops!!). Most of the time we don't’ know what to do with negative emotions so we shove them aside or ignore them, lodging them in our auric fields to fester; this is bad. What we want to do is create new experiences that are different that the ones we don’t like all that much; we want to create space for new hopes and dreams, and this can be achieved through writing universal letters.
Before you begin to write, set the tone and an intention for your letter (very important). I will give you some examples below, but; first, I must recommend watching a video for further information on setting accurate intentions, fostering more love into your auric field, and reaching a higher level of consciousness. , I invite you to watch Matt Kahn’s talk on “Essential keys to Intention” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8997sJ_lmtI
Universal Letter Structure
1. Biggest focuses for the letter:
UNCONDITIONAL LOVE - If you wish, pray that the negative emotions, attachments and expressions in this letter transform into unconditional love. You can never have too much love when cleansing and releasing.
Intend to trade your pain for peace and plan to surrender to the HIGHEST GOOD OF ALL.
Another major part of the letter is releasing attachments or returning power IN ALL DIRECTIONS OF SPACE AND TIME, which can help you clear up any negative karmic ties lingering from past lives. These ties can be with the person you’re writing to, or the experience (eg; break-up, job loss, life failure etc) you are writing about. Also, you can address the letter to the universe and write about a particular situation that keeps repeating itself in place of a person, or, you can write to yourself.
2. Opening Paragraph:
a) “Dear (Name)” - Can be full name or just first name. You can say “Dear Atma Joe” to ensure you are working with the person’s highest self (soul) and to keep your release centered in unconditional love for best conversion of the energy.
b) “I am writing you this letter through the universe to release any negative attachments, unwind any draining energy cords that are not of love and to release any negative patterns between us.”
Body Part 1:
Release, Release, Release!!! I’m talking about the raw, unedited, uncensored emotions and thoughts you have. That’s right!; write it how it is inside, no matter how dark or negative; … write it down and get it OUT of your system. All the things you wish you had said, or would say if given the opportunity; all the things you didn’t get or that you wished for; how your felt about behaviors or incidences. Dig deep and don’t judge yourself. This isn’t a time for shame, but rather, a time for clearing and cleansing. Remember, there is no writing limit, so if thoughts keep coming up be sure to honor them; release them until they are gone.
“Don’t try to purify yourself before coming to me. I am the purifier.” ~ ACIM
Body Part 2 - The most vital part!!! This is where everything is cleared and transmuted into unconditional love! This part can’t be skipped
Surrender: “As a sovereign being of the light I now claim full authority over my energy field. I now release, through unconditional love, from every cell in my body and energy field with the help of my Angels and the Divine Creator - every negative thought, feeling, memory, and word! In all directions of space and time. I renounce all proclamations of eternal loyalty, unions, hate, viciousness or anger, as I trade my pain for peace now. Recall to me my power that I knowingly or unknowingly may have given to others; and return anyone’s power I may have consciously or unconsciously taken - May it be cleansed in Creators light and returned to tenfold in unconditional love.”
“At a soul level I know I see the lessons and purpose of this (“union” or “experience”) and I ask for integration at the physical and mental level now. I know that any ties of perfect love can never be broken or lost at the true soul level and that we are all connected in truth. In my healing, may anyone else experiencing a similar situation be blessed, healed and return to wholeness, peace and vitality. May the happy memories of our (“union” or “experience”) be restored to me yet keeping mercy and severity balanced as to not re-experience the energy pattern I am releasing.”
“I surrender all to unconditional love and to the highest good of all. Creator, show me how this can get better. Love and blessings to us both always.”
“Sincerely, (YOUR NAME)”
Once you have completed this letter, it is good to destroy it ceremoniously with a prayer and either: burn it, dissolve it in a lake or stream or simply rip it up. If you do this on a full moon or a new moon, it increases the release and stabilizes completion of that lessons integration into your auric field. It’s important to note that you may have to write one or several of these letters to the same person. BUT, That’s ok!! Honor what comes up for you and continue to release it in a healthy way. That’s it for this week!
Until next week…I love you, your Angels love you and you deserve to feel happy, to feel at peace and live your dreams! And don't forget to bring the light into everything you do today!
