Are you hurting from a breakup? Experiencing relationship trouble? Sad or angry about something that happened long ago, or full of regret because you feel you hurt someone?
You might be able to heal a little bit faster using a technique developed by my friend Jody, who agreed to let me use her name in this post.
Write to Heal
After Jody read “Conversations with God,” she got creative and started writing down conversations with people — or rather, with the souls of people — she needed to resolve things with. Including people who were still alive.
“I ask the person’s soul because I figure the soul is pure good,” she explains. Even if someone has been cruel or failed to understand her in the past, she can appeal to their soul and feel safe in communicating with them.
For example, after her divorce she needed answers to lingering questions. So she wrote down a conversation between herself and the good soul of her ex-husband. She got the answers she needed.
The dialogues she created were ones she couldn’t have had with her actual ex. But his good, loving soul was happy to oblige and speak with her for as long as she needed, answering all her questions with patience and wisdom.
Jody says it was those written conversations with her ex’s soul that helped her heal and move forward after the divorce.
How to Do It
If there’s someone you’re angry at, sad about, or afraid of, you might benefit the way Jody did from writing down a conversation between yourself and that person’s soul.
Ask the questions you need answers to. Say the things you need to say to the person, and listen to the response from their soul.
Think of the soul as the pure essence of the person, minus their human frailty, their history and their hurts. It’s whatever part of them belongs in Heaven.
When you speak to that beautiful, good part of them, you’re not dealing with their flawed human selves. You’re safe from whatever might happen in an actual conversation between you.
So go ahead and have a heart-to-heart with THAT PERSON’s soul, and please let me know how it goes.
