Dear Higher Self,
we have been together for almost 29 years. We went through so many ups and downs and you have never left my side. You were there for me throughout my whole life. You played, you laughed, you cried with me. You stayed with me even when I had nothing to show you but distrust, guilt and shame.
There were times in which I bullied and abused you and your beautiful temple – our body. You never judged me, but showed me love and understanding while sending me signs that led me back onto my path.
You took me to the most exotic places on earth, helped me to create touching art, assisted me in confronting my fears and always gave your very best. We are a wonderful team. You are my best friend, my lover, my traveling companion, healer and supporter.
So today, I do not only want to tell you how grateful I am to have you by my side, but vow to threat you like the goddess of all goddesses and keep your temple clean.
You are my inner guide, my witch, my creator, my queen, my self.
I promise to go even more into the direction of self-love by asking more questions and listening carefully to your answers that you speak in silence through the language of image, emotion and intuition.
I vow to connect with you on a daily basis by taking the time to mindfully examine my body and feeling my feelings. I promise to become softer in my actions and release the pressure of control that is caused by thinking patterns of the past. But most of all, I assure you awareness and growth as this is the path we are meant to walk together.
And if you want me to be present with old, unhealed, emotional wounds, I will gladly go to the pain and uncomfortable feelings as I know you will be there to guide and support me.
Having been stuck in resistance in the past, I haven’t always appreciated you. So I will take the chance to do it even more today. I want to continue to cherish your greatness every day of my life and focus my attention on all the wonder you do for me every second. I will follow my joy which will ultimately make us merge together in the same place of consciousness of pure love.
You taught me that we came into this life together to experience, feel and create. I commit to this beautiful adventure riding alongside your side, my higher self, on the road to self-discovery.
