Remember, at the beginning of our sessions, I warned that the most difficult job you would have would be total honesty with yourself. Well, here is another example.
Every memory has a color, a sound, an emotion that is an integral part of the memory. We are going to bring back the colors, sounds, textures and other components of a single memory BUT NOT THE EMOTION of it. You will watch this memory with absolute detachment and objectivity — like a movie happening to a stranger. Feel nothing. Just watch and analyze.
Sit quietly in a very quiet place. Still your mind. Take slow, deep breaths. Go back in your life to the very worst incident you can remember. Bring it into focus, but hold it at arm's length in front of you. Turn it around like a ball. Look at it; smell it; hear it; examine it under a magnifying glass. What caused this event? Who was at fault (it wasn't you!)? What lesson did you learn from this memory? As you turn the ball, pick out any single positive thing that may be hiding in this terrible memory. Was there anything good at all? Was there any good lesson? Did anything positive come out of this? If so, take each of the good things and put them to one side. Pick it apart. Examine it to pieces. Build a little pile of good things, if you can.
Take what's left of the memory, wrap it in white paper, wrap that in blue paper, tie it with a beautiful blue bow, and toss it to the Universe. As you let it go, say "Take this painful memory away, and transform it into positive energy that can benefit someone in need." It is gone. Let it go. This is an old, old memory that has been haunting you all your life. It will come back. When it does, repeat the exercise, making sure to take out anything good you may have missed before. Do exactly the same thing each time it pops up. You will notice it getting smaller and smaller, and less and less painful. When it reaches the point that it's funny, and is only a nuisance that you can give a swift kick away, you are free of it. It is gone.
Remember the little pile of good things? Gather those good memories, wrap them in white, wrap that in a beautiful soft pink, tie a fancy pink bow around it, and take it into your heart. You see, when we begin to disturb the subconscious mind, we are opening old filing cabinets and tearing up the contents. If we do not replace the "bad and ugly" we take out with "good and pretty", it will begin to fill up that file with the same old junk it always had. Two things cannot occupy the same space. If that space is filled with positive, there is no room for negative.
Why white? The God-Spirit; purity. Why blue? Healing. Why pink? Love and compassion.
When you are free of this memory, go get another and give it the same treatment. Do this over and over until your past pain is where it belongs — in the past. This is hard, but you can do it. The relief and release that you feel will be worth it.
