I’m currently working my way through Kyle Gray’s book Raise Your Vibration: 111 Practices to Increase Your Spiritual Connection. It has a message and prompt for each day for 111 days. To be honest, I’m doing more than one lesson per day, but I’m still trying to pace myself through it.
One of the lessons I did recently called for us to write a self-love note to our younger selves and give advice, healing and acceptance. Write about anything and then keep the letter, toss it, burn it, whatever. But before you do anything with it, read it out loud to yourself.
I’ve heard of exercises like this in the past, but I’d never participated before. It was very powerful and therapeutic, so I thought I’d share my letter here in case any of you can relate. If you feel called to do so, I’d recommend trying out this exercise. You might be surprised at what you write or how you feel.
You are so much stronger than you think. Your personality makes you different, and that’s amazing. You don’t want to be like anyone else. Stay secure in who you are, and don’t worry about the rest of them.
You are beautiful. You are loved. You are worthy.
Listen to your intuition. Stay weird. Just do you.
Their mean words will fuel your desire to help others now and in the future. Don’t let them break or define you. You are exactly who and where you’re supposed to be.
It sucks that people pretend to be your friend and then lie and/or bully you. Your weight does not define you, now or ever.
You’re turning into a strong, beautiful, loving and caring woman, and you will meet your soulmate. It will get better. You’re going to be okay. You’re going to go through a lot of things that you think will break you. They don’t. You continue to rise like a Phoenix.
I love your quirkiness, empathy, passion and hunger for learning. You are amazing.
I love you.
