When I am doing healing work, a reconnection often occurs with the elements earth, water, air, fire and ether. It is good to use some of these elements to support the release of emotions or traumas, which can help the healing process take less time. In doing this, some stored memories can start emerging - past incidents or traumas that you don't remember or have put aside are recalled, giving you an opportunity to release them.
You can try this yourself. The Healing Homework described below consists of writing detailed, personal letters to people in your past and present and then utilizing some of the elements in a releasing ceremony, rather than actually sending them.
The process of writing to the person creates links on a subtle level for release of blocked energies. When you write these letters, a discharge of energy can come through your writing. For example, if you are angry, what you write will have the energy frequencies of what is being released - anger.
These letters are vehicles for the release of the stored perceptions that we have about certain events and people. They help us to forgive others and ourselves for actions and words that we believe we, or they, have performed. They are not to blame anyone for what happened.
Here is an example:
When I was a child, I didn't like it when you forced me to eat certain foods. I hated it. I was angry and frustrated because I could not do anything about it.
I didn't like it when you called me stupid. It hurt me.
Continue writing about whatever triggered your anger, upset or frustrated you, or about those matters that you find it hard to express your feelings about. Sign your letter.
Write individual letters to:
• Your mother
• Your father
• Your partner
• Your brother (if you have more than one, write individual letters to each brother)
• Your sister (if you have more than one, write individual letters to each sister)
• To yourself
• To people that you hurt in the past, or to someone that you are somehow hurting in this moment describing what action or deed you performed asking their forgiveness.
What to do with the letters
You can do a little ceremony, or you can pray any way you like. As you burn the paper, light a candle and use your imagination to create a very sacred space. Ask God the Source, your Guru (if you have one) and Mother Earth to release all of these negative emotions and lower frequencies energies and to transform them. Bury the ashes under a tree. Give thanks to the tree for helping to absorb and transform these energies. You can spread some tobacco as you burn the letters. Or, place some tobacco around the tree.
Use your creativity and imagination in your ceremonies. The more sincere you are and the more vivid the images, the more effective it will be.
