In Part 2 you had an imaginary experience of burning paper on which was written your negative feelings and judgments. This is based on a powerful tool called Purge Writing. I strongly recommend this practice, especially when you feel overwhelmed and hopeless. This this is how it works:
Set a timer for no less than 10 minutes and no more than 30 minutes.
Get a blank pad of paper with plenty of pages (not your journal).
Light a candle.
Write every negative thought and feeling that you crosses your mind. “Vomit out” all your upset onto the pages. Do not hold back. Do not read what you have written. These are your most unrestrained, negative, upsetting judgments and emotions about yourself and others. It’s giving voice to all your doubts and fears in the strongest language possible. Don’t bother trying to keep it legible, since you don’t want these going back into your consciousness by looking it again.
When you’re finished, burn it.
While burning the pages, set your intention to release the thoughts and feelings you wrote on the pages.
This process can powerfully move negative energy. There’s something about taking pen to paper in releasing emotions that’s more effective than just talking or waiting for tomorrow to feel better.
