Love Letters

February 2024

On the first day of this month, I signed up to a newsletter called ‘Letters from Love’. At first, I was content to simply watch the short videos that had been posted by the newsletter’s creator, Elizabeth (Liz) Gilbert. After a week of hearing about others’ experiences of writing letters to and from unconditional love, my curiosity got the better of me and I sat down to write my own.

To write a letter from love (or ‘love letter’ for short), you start off by asking, “Dear Love, what would you have me know today?” and then note down whatever comes through. Whether the information comes from channelling, or accessing a more loving part of our own consciousness, or connecting with universal love, or something else, writing letters from love appears to have the effect of soothing, calming, and reassuring the many people who have taken up this practice.

For me, the content of the letters themselves isn’t particularly profound at this stage (nor do I expect it to be), but I have very much enjoyed writing these love letters so far. I’m only one week in, and yet I feel noticeably softer, kinder, and gentler towards myself.

I don’t feel that I’m connecting with spirit guides, or with any presence of someone I’ve known in this lifetime. Others, however, have mentioned they get the strong sense that these letters from love come through from the spirit of a deceased friend, family member, or partner. I’m comfortable not knowing the source of the letters, and can allow my inner sceptic to argue that it’s purely the result of my imagination. I’m just happy to continue receiving the reassurance and other benefits of the practice, regardless of where it’s coming from.

One of Liz’s videos covers the topic of endearments, and how it’s common for people to notice endearing words flowing through when asking what love would have them know on any particular day. I’ve noticed “sweetie” comes up a fair bit. It’s interesting that I can’t remember anyone calling me that in childhood or as an adult, nor do I use that particular term of endearment with others.

While some people may find this a bit corny or embarrassing at first, many also agree that it’s a nice change from the harsh self-talk that they’ve become accustomed to. I've noticed that a lot of people will talk more negatively towards themselves than to a complete stranger. If you can relate to this, perhaps consider writing yourself a letter from love. It may feel fake or forced at first, but what eventually comes through may surprise you!
