The other night I was tossing something around in my head. Going back and forth, “well, I kinda feel this way, but then there’s this.” (I’d be more specific, but that’s a little too personal). I realized I’d been grappling with this issue for days, perhaps even weeks! That’s a lot of time and mental energy spent on something that wasn’t getting any closer to being resolved. And why? Because I don’t have a solution. I’m trying to use my will in an area of my life that isn’t up to me. And why isn’t it?? Because it’s not about me! It’s about someone else and I have no control over that person or anyone else.
When I realized I was getting myself into that unhealthy loop of trying to figure someone out and how I might sway the tide one way or another, I sat myself down and said, “Sash, it’s time we had a talk.” That’s right, I talk to myself. And even better, I write myself letters. That particular night, I wrote myself a love letter. Yes, a letter oozing with self-love because I believe when we are feeling off-kilter, somehow we have stepped away from love.
I busted out my favorite pen and some markers, because a love letter to me should be adorned with color, said a little prayer to be guided, and began:
This is a letter from your Higher Self, the you that is your divinity, the you that knows you and loves you more than anyone else. This is the you that hangs out with God on the regular in an eternal state of laughing, smiling bliss. This is the you that knows that everything you want to achieve is in your grasp, and what you’ve got coming is even more spectacular than anything you can possibly imagine.
I take the risk of sharing this portion with you (risk because it is highly personal and some of you may think I’m totally nuts), because perhaps it might guide you in writing your own love letter to yourself. I believe this intro can apply to anyone that needs to rise above their fearful anxious ego and listen to their higher wisdom.
After that, the words just flowed and flowed. The most important overarching message was to keep the focus on ME, I am loved and guided, and I have nothing to be afraid of. I know all of this in my heart, but sometimes I need a reminder. Thank you Higher Self for your wisdom and guidance, and for always having my back. Thank you God for guiding my words.
Here are three ways you can take action now:
1) Write yourself a love letter, either in regards to a specific issue you are grappling with or just to let you know how amazing you are.
2) Report your insights in the comments below.
