A Letter To My Younger Self

This last week my homework for yoga was to write a letter to my younger self… and I had no idea how this would go but I really surprised myself. As I unscrewed the lid to Anchor essential oil, I was immediately overcome with a deep feeling of being firmly grounded in who I am today. I was drawn to place Anchor on the arches of my feet, over my heart and on my third eye chakra. I sense of knowing, calmness and connectedness washes over me. 

So the first thing I did was imagine that I was sitting beside me and offering some words of love. Just like you would for someone you feel emotionally connected to, a best friend, a soul mate. I asked myself, What would you say? Would words of advice would you offer? I chose initially to focus on what I think my strengths are. I wanted to offer my younger self an opportunity to know that these are the things that you are good at. 

I never in my wildest dreams expected the words to flow on to the paper like they did. The flow was effortless and full of many positive affirmations about me!! It really took me by surprise. I wrote about all my positive attributes that were going to help the younger version of me through adversity. The thought of how to address the areas that needed some extra love and attention was present but unattended.

It’s funny (or not really!!) but interesting that this homework popped into my life the same time I was doing Health Coaching Course. One of the exercises was to complete a questionnaire which then gave me my top 25 characteristics. I really loved doing this and if you get the opportunity I’d highly recommend it.

So in some ways  positive characteristics were at the forefront of my mind. So writing the letter did include many of these characteristics, but in a very personal, love felt message.The letter was written with a lot of love.

If we focus on our strong points, what we are good at, in all areas of our life, then success and whatever that means to you is inevitable. So it felt like a good angle to take. If my younger self could know all these strengths then surely the path would be somewhat less challenging. Not without challenges but perhaps with more ease. Without challenges there would be no growth and thats no fun.

The first letter didn’t actually include pitfalls, because hey you know I always try and focus on the positives. But I had someone directly point out to me this week what they were and it took me to a place of knowing that they were still there but I choose everyday to work my light, work on my strengths. I then realised that it is actually a strength to know what your pitfalls are. So I went back to my letter and added them in. If you know what your pitfalls are then then you can choose to work on them or focus your attention on your strengths. 

So here’s a challenge for you. Have a go at writing a letter to your younger self, I’d love to hear how you go. Let me know in comments… 

CRYSTALS used: Amethyst, Clear Quartz

AFFIRMATIONS: I love me. I completely love and accept myself.

  1. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really
    something that I think I would never understand. It seems too
    complicated and extremely broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post,
    I’ll try to get the hang of it!

  2. Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was
    super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say,
    I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer
    but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any
    helpful hints for beginner blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.

    However, consider this, suppose you wrote a catchier title?
    I ain’t suggesting your content isn’t solid, however what if you added something that makes people want more?
    I mean A Letter To My Younger Self is kinda boring. You should peek at Yahoo’s front page and see how
    they write post titles to grab people to click.

    to grab people excited about everything’ve written. In my opinion,
    it might make your website a little livelier.
