This is a mini ritual that would be a follow up to a larger or more in depth releasing ritual and healing. This is about the remnants of releasing. What is left behind - the scars, the burns, the imprints on your energy that remain after traumatic events, difficult circumstances, heartbreak, trying relationships, etc. Even though you may have released this and let it go, every now and again it comes back up and you still have yet more releasing to do. This ritual, given to me by my spirit guides, is symbolic for releasing those energetic imprints. It's very simple, but you can make it as intricate or elaborate as you wish. Don't be afraid to add your own magical flair if you feel called. Watch the YouTube Video that goes along with this working for a more in depth explanation.
Tools - pencil, eraser, paper, a lighter or candle
Set the mood if you like. Call in your spirit team. You can incorporate lunar energy, candlelight, crystals, incense, music - you name it. Whatever gets you in the mood.
What have you released over and over, but you still feel a part of it is holding onto your spirit? Nagging and tugging. That just won't let go? Write this on your paper in pencil. Press hard enough as you write so that your writing will bleed through the paper, leaving an imprint. Allow any remaining feelings about this situation (anger, hurt, jealousy, sadness, etc.) to come back up as you're writing.
Once you've finished writing, begin to lightly erase your pencil marks. Feel free to use a releasing affirmation as you go through each one. You should see the remnants or impression of your handwriting still left upon the paper. The energetic imprint of these instances.
Take your lighter or candle and burn your paper, thereby releasing the remnants of these energetic strongholds. Give gratitude to your angels and guides for helping you with this working.
