Letting Go of the Past
In order to invite in new love, you must let go of old relationships. The emotions of anger, resentment, guilt and mistrust are very powerful, and they set up barriers in our auric field that tell potential new partners “stay away.” In addition to therapy and good friends, there are some great metaphysical techniques you can use to let go of a painful past relationship once and for all.
For starters, gather up everything your ex gave you – letters, gifts, cards. If none of it is meaningful or valuable to you, then donate the gifts and throw away the letters. If you’d like to hold on to these things because they have sentimental value, then box it up and tie it with a black ribbon. Black is grounding and protective.
Next, write a letter to your ex. This is a letter he/she will never see, so really pour your heart into the letter. Get out all your regrets, dashed hopes, anger, guilt and sadness. Once you’re done, you can rip up the letter, bury it, or safely burn it in an oven proof bowl.
