Letters to My True SELF

A very long time ago. I was given an assignment to do while I participated in a yearlong training program.

Every morning I was to write a letter to my true Self. Then wait to listen for the answer and write that answer as a letter from my true Self back to me. Over 30 years later, I am still doing this.

The I and me are the self I usually live with. It is the self that lives inside my own skin. Over the years I have said lots about my frustrations and feelings.

My true Self is the part that goes beyond my skin and connects with the love and wisdom of the universe. In my letters that begin DEAR FRIEND, I do my best to tell my story which often includes where my energy is obviously stuck.

The answers I get are often just a few words long and remind me of how to stay focused on the most important aspects of my world. They are signed, YOUR FRIEND. 

Since I learned to use Logosynthesis, the energy release and reclamation system I teach in this book, as I write, I notice the stuck places and include a note that I will use the process to release the energy. My FRIEND writes back to affirm my decision.

Practice, Practice, Practice

When I was 9 years old, I remember being reduced to tears by an argument with my grandmother about how to dry a glass. She wanted to show me a new and easier way, but it was different and hard for me to manage.

I still like to feel competent. When I start something new, or something I have not done for a long time, I feel awkward. When I feel awkward, I am readily distracted. Sometimes I even manage to forget that I was trying something new and go right back to doing whatever I was doing before.

When I was learning to use Logosynthesis to recover my energy from the various places it was stuck, I was definitely awkward. My targets weren't right. I got the sentences mixed up. I started doing other things after I had said one sentence and never got back to the next sentence, and most of all, I completely forgot about my new tool when it would have been very helpful to use it. I needed to be reminded.

I am not unique. I hear many people, whom I know have experienced using this tool, describing places where they feel stuck. If I remind them about about it the usual response is, "oh, I forgot." Then, the next time I see them, "it worked!"

Like other tools, this one only works if you remember to practice enough to feel competent when you use it, and then use it to resolve your own stuck energy often known as anxiety and stress.

Don’t Believe Everything You Think

I am in the process of completing a really big project. I am working on republishing much of my earlier work as a series called Secrets of Happy Relationships.

One morning the "end of project self-talk" came on full blast, before I was even completely awake. The chatter included, "The competition in this field is huge. Who do you think needs this anyway? This won't work. It's not your usual kind of series…." and much more that I don't want to share because you might believe it and none of it is true.

Fortunately, I quickly noticed the pattern. It is common and sometimes associated with "Fear of Success." I have been through it before as have many of my author friends.

It’s just a story we tell ourselves in response to the stress of consciously and carefully completing our work. This time I managed it with Logosynthesis. I said the sentences and the energy in the story dissipated immediately.

If I had believed the story, I could have used it as justification to delay the release of the project until I had reviewed it one more time–or maybe worse. It's easy to believe stories like this but I urge you to consider using these tools and just letting them go.

Just remember, don't believe everything you think!
