Love Letters to Yourself
Love letters. Have you kept some over the years? Do you write them? Have you ever written one to yourself? Does that strike am awkward chord or elicit a nervous giggle? If you were to consciously write a love letter to yourself, what would it say? What if one is being unconsciously written everyday to you from your Higher Self and you simply have to open yourself to receiving it? What do you suppose that letter says?
Tosha Silver writes, "And what if we each have this ardent inner suitor who's writing us love letters everyday that often go unopened?"
Ardent means passionate, enthusiastic, glowing. What if our Higher Self has been writing us passionate, enthusiastic and glowing love letters every day since day one and we have been ignoring them? Just think of the dedication of our inner Self to keep writing these loving things to us every day in hopes we may eventually (and finally) awaken to hearing the divineness that comes from within each one of us. Aren't you slightly curious to know what all those letters said? Are you curious enough to wake up today and embrace being open to your own divinity? Will you hear today's letter?
“You are one thing only. You are a Divine Being. An all-powerful Creator. You are a Deity in jeans and a t-shirt, and within you dwells the infinite wisdom of the ages and the sacred creative force of All that is, will be and ever was.” ― Anthon St. Maarten, Divine Living: The Essential Guide To Your True Destiny
So, are you up (rather, open) to an experiment? Grab a notebook and a pen and find a quiet place to sit down. Take a deep inhale through your nose and a really loud exhale through your mouth. Then close your eyes so you can better feel your breath. Slow everything down; your movements, your breath and your mind. Take five minutes - only five little minutes- to sit still so you can begin the process of learning to hear your Higher Self. When you are ready, open your eyes and write that love letter to yourself. Do not pause and think to yourself I don't know what to write; you do not have to. Just keep the pen flowing, especially when you get to the point where you think you are done. And, perhaps, when you get to the point where you feel your heart soften and tears behind the eyes, you will know you have made it to the part of the letter that is not being directed by conscious you but by Higher Self you.
"Spiritual opening is not a withdrawal to some imagined realm or safe cave. It is not a pulling away, but a touching of all the experience of life with wisdom and with a heart of kindness, without any separation." Jack Kornfield
