Get up to speed and check out Question #1 and #2.
We learn love through example. Our example is usually our parents or whoever raised us. We tend to adopt our beliefs about love based on our parents’ relationship. If your parents’ had a hard time being kind to each other, you probably sometimes interpret jealousy or criticism as love (which they are not by the way). If a parent was very controlling, you may interpret control as love (which is also not love). These are important things to recognize because if you want a healthy relationship, you need to bring these things to the light to be processed and healed.
So the following questions are to take a look at your interpretation of love through what you’ve learned about it. Grab your Purge journal and give it a go.
- How did your parents/care givers show love to their spouse/partner/significant other?
- Did they use kind words? Gifts? Touch? Do nice things for them? Spend time with them?
- Give at least one example.
- How did you parents/care givers show love and affection to you?
- Did they use kind words? Gifts? Touch? Do nice things for you? Spend time with you?
- Give at least one example.
- How do you show love to your romantic partners?
- Do you see any similarities in how you give or receive love and affection?
- Give at least one example
I don’t know who this message is for but I know it will reach you. Enjoy…
Stop giving your power away. You’re a divine being of the Universe. You are literally made of star dust. Start acting like it.
You are not at the mercy of anything other than your own mind. You’re not at the mercy of what he said, she said, he did, she did, they did. No. You are only a prisoner to your own mind. Set yourself free. You don’t have to carry everyone else’s lessons too. Just your own. Stop trying to make yourself smaller, easier, more loveable, more manageable. You are meant to be as wild as the sea from which you were born. Stop denying your nature. Stop trying to fit in other people’s small world view. These things weren’t meant for you, little one. So stop trying. Stop trying to be a thing lesser than what you already are. You are a god. A goddess. You are the master of your own mental landscape.
Stop giving the keys away to other people. Especially those who have not earned it. Sometimes they don’t deserve you, little one. No matter how much you wish they did. So forgive. And let get go. Because you no longer need to be burdened with the lessons those before you could not learn. Put it down. Put down everything that doesn’t belong to you. And there’s a lot. Because you’re a feeler. You’re a care-er. A giver. A healer. You take on the pain of those around you so they don’t have to feel it. But it’s not your pain. It’s not your lesson. You can’t heal another’s wound. Especially if they keep picking at it and re-infecting it themselves. So put it down little one. Take your hands off of other people’s wounds. Let them bleed. Let them learn. Not because you’re heartless. Not because you don’t care. Not because they don’t matter. But because you’re giving your power away.
You’re draining your vital energy into something that people can’t heal from the outside. Everyone must heal from the inside out. Even the people you love. Even YOU. So stop trying to bring people to the light. You can’t make people see when they refuse to open their eyes. Instead, heal yourself inside out and live the light. Be the light for everyone around you.
You’re made of star dust.
You’re a divine being made from the stuff of the heavens.
Start acting like it.

Grab your Purge journal, find a private place, and let’s clean out some emotional wounds!
Let the emotions and words flow freely. There’s no right or wrong. It’s possible in your journaling to connect to things that originally felt unrelated or that you didn’t want to look into. Do what feels safe and comfortable. Stretch yourself but only to the point that is safe. Remember emotions are temporary, especially if we express them in a healthy way like writing. And they become even more temporary and manageable the more we process them in these healthy ways.
Enjoy uncovering the layers and good luck!

Who had a diary growing up? Show of virtual hands.
I know many of us were given diaries as gifts and, if you were anything like me as a 90’s kid, it left you with a collection of mostly blank Lisa Frank notebooks. Today, I’m asking you to make up with your diary…well, maybe not the Lisa Frank one. Continue reading “Have no fear, your journals are here!”
