The Scarlet Letter
Jill in Durham, United Kingdom writes:
It’s Friday, and I’m all prepared to do the writing and crafting of my love letter to gain the help of the universe. I’ve found a red pen in the drawer and it doesn’t write. This won’t stop me, as I’ve been to the shops and bought a set of pens, and again, the red one doesn’t work. It’s night time and I’ve found another red pen in the drawer, after a few lines it runs out. What does this mean?
Although it may be frustrating, your experience and interference in your work is not uncommon. I must commend you on your tenacious energy in that you are not going to give up on seeking love.
Since your arm, hand and writing instrument are all an extension of your personal self, your experience with the pen (or should I say pens) not writing is an indication that a bit more clarity is necessary on your part before you begin crafting your love letter. Although I think you are very clear on what you want in a relationship and what it is that you’re seeking, your eagerness to write it all down and send it off has been obstructed with the sometimes not-so-fun, but necessary, evaluation of yourself and personal life. Have you thought about how a relationship will affect your personal life? Have you thought about time management and whether or not you have the time to commit to a new relationship? Additionally, are you emotionally ready? Do you feel that you can offer the best “you” in a relationship?
I encourage you to take an evening and check in with yourself and your desire to change your day to day life and schedule with the impact of a new relationship. When you have recognized and accepted this responsibility, make a mental contract with the universe proclaiming that you are ready and willing to accept the joy, along with the obstacles and lessons that a relationship will bring. I encourage you to try writing the letter again, and watch how easily the ink and your clear intentions flow. Thank you for your question, and may love have its way with you!
