There is a Shamanic Teaching, which teaches us that it’s important to release ‘the old’ so that we can invite in ‘the new.’ The enormity of being kept in the dark for 46 years still weighs heavily.
Although I have already written a blog about the ‘Write & Burn letter’ understanding how the letter works, helps us let go and find peace, through an immediate release of stress and anxiety of that issue.
When there are people (they don’t have to have passed) with whom we may have had a difficult relationship with, it’s easy to feel upset, anxious and negative. It can be extremely difficult for us to let go of the anger, sadness and impact of that relationship.
I believe it’s important for us to heal our wounds, because that allows us to move on with our lives without being affected by our feelings. It also prevents our wounds from shaping or influencing any future choices we go on to make. Instead we have an unbiased place to make our choices and we have more clarity.
One letter can address as many issues relating to as many people as you feel is necessary at that time. Writing the letter in such a way that tells them our side of the story, releases us from any wrong doing. We must do that because any wrong-doing we are affected by, will shape the way we deal with every situation that is automatically reminiscent of our relationship with that person.
Until I managed to take control of my own thoughts and feelings through my blog, I was very much tied to the old patterns of my childhood conditioning. But by far the biggest issue still for me, is being kept in the dark for 46 years. I haven’t been able to let that one go. It feels much bigger than even my neurological difficulties.
Knowing that my life around my disability could have played out so differently emotionally, is a hard pill for me to swallow; made all the more difficult, because I deal with anxiety. Just thinking about it makes me feel panicked and anxious. Any issue that I have to deal with after that, automatically adds to how I feel about it.
I believe that by letting go of old negative energies, healing our emotional wounds from the past, will always invite new and positive opportunities, enabling us to choose what we think about and bring into our lives.
Rather than struggle to make choices whilst being stuck in the past, write your letter, read your letter out slowly with as much expression and determination as you can and then burn it.
