Therefore, love for love's sake, because it is law of life, just as you breathe to live. It's Your Outlook That Matters: It is our own mental attitude that makes the world what it is for us. Our thoughts make things beautiful; our thoughts make things ugly.
The whole world is in our own minds. Learn to see things in the proper light. Life is Beautiful: First, believe in this world--that there is meaning behind everything. Everything in the world is good, is holy and beautiful. If you see something evil, interpret it to mean that you do not yet understand it in the right light.
Throw the burden on yourselves! It is feeling that is the life, the strength, the vitality--without which no amount of intellectual activity can reach God. Set Yourself Free: The moment I have realized God sitting in the temple of every human body, the moment I stand in reverence before every human being and see God in him--that moment I am free from bondage, everything that binds vanishes, and I am free. If you cannot, fold your hands, bless your brothers and let them go their own way.
Help Others: If money helps a man to do good to others, it is of some value; but if not, it is simply a mass of evil, and the sooner it is got rid of, the better. Uphold Your Ideals: Our duty is to encourage every one in his struggle to live up to his own highest ideal, and strive at the same time to make the ideal as near as possible to the Truth.
Listen To Your Soul: You have to grow from the inside out.
None can teach you, none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul. To ground yourself, sit or firmly plant your feet on the ground.
Take a few deep breaths, envisioning pulling life energy up from the ground with every inhale, and shooting roots through the soles of your feet and sacrum with every exhale. I always start with the feelings or circumstances that no longer serve me. If a letter to the universe feels more you , then write out your list in prose or poem! On the same piece of paper or a different one, no wrong way to do this , I list everything I want to invoke.
I start by burning the list of no-longer-welcomes. As I ignite the list or letter, I say something like this:.
Then, I burn the list of everything I desire to have and feel. As I light this list, I say something like…. I then take a few deep breaths and rub my hands together : effectively washing myself of attachment to anything I just released, both desired and undesired. You must be willing to let go of all attachment to both the bad AND the good.
When you let go of expectations, then the universe is free to provide for you creatively. So, you can be as situationally-specific or not as you want to be. There is no wrong time , but new moons and full moons are excellent times when it seems to be more potent to work with intentions, ceremonies, invocations, and releases. Do you feel lighter? Has the universe read your letter or list?
Check back in with me and comment or email. I love hearing from you! Her offerings blend cutting-edge neuroscience with trauma healing AND playful adventure to create powerful and lasting results. Lola's a Communication Empath.
What kind of Empath are you? An Emotional Healer suggested this ritual to free myself of emotional memory caused by previous traumas. I am glad I came across your post because I had some other things to get rid of and invoke. Thank you so much for it. I just completed it the ritual in the park next to my work.
Have a fantastic day! Beautiful, Thomas!! I am so glad you found this post and that it helped you form a ritual that felt powerful and aligned. Sending you much love and light, friend! Hello I just did the ritual and I feel as though a load has been lifted from me.
I feel light. I feel happy. I feel encouraged. Thank you for your guidance.
Hi Corey! I love hearing that the ritual helped you release some energy???? May you find many resources here to support your journey as an empath. I had my first burning ritual the other night. I turned our uncomplicated relationship into something more complicated than it should be. I was consumed with my obsessive thoughts on wanting to be in a relationship with him and ended up really hurting myself in the end.
I knew I had to let him go. For the things that I wanted to invoke, I wrote down the root of where my heartache was coming from — my inability to be vulnerable. I wished for myself to have the courage to finally tell him how I feel, and to let love in. This is so beautiful, Melanie!! How have you felt since the release??
I feel so honored to have received your confession here. Cheers to living a life that feels more free, more vulnerable and strong, and looooving. Just did my first release ritual and it was so cleansing. This makes me soooo happy to read, Shannon!!! Fantastic work… this ritual is incredibly powerful in its simplicity. I am going to do my first release burning ritual tonight since it is the full moon i only hope it goes well and i prosper from it. Im so excited to do this cause i know i need it right now more than anything. Would it be best to do it alone or with a friend who is brand new to holistic magic or rituals.
Blessed Be Friends! Hi Crystal! You can try it for yourself both ways! I just came across this posting after doing a ritual burning release having been recommended in a healing session around some deep healing and transition in my life right now. I LOVE the piece about burning the what-you-want, too — in order to release expectation and to foster openness. That is awesome. Thanks for this post! Hi Jenn! Hello, I read your column and loved it. I wrote a letter of some major hurt and I burnt it I felt amazing and relived!
In the process of burning the second one I felt a huge lump in my throat came back inside and had a panick attack and now feel constant negative energy in my body, I feel so sick. Can anyone help me understand what this is? Imagine being a predator, like a lioness or leopard, and hunting down those emotions, pouncing on them, and shaking them to break them of their power over you.
It may feel a little strange, silly, or weird, but can be HUGE! Let me know how that goes… and if you want to connect, I do offer Soul Retrieval sessions and we can work with this further.
Hi Foxy, loved the post very well written and explained!!! I have a question…what about doing this indoor?
