Let Go of Lists of Errors

God said:

Where did that anxiety you feel in your stomach come from?

You were going along just fine, and then suddenly you began to feel fraught with anxiety about what you said or what you wrote or what you did, about how you could have done it differently, better, how you could have spoken up or not spoken at all, how you may have over-asserted yourself or not asserted yourself enough. The list could go on. There is no lack of recommendations for despair. You find an old list of errors you have made or might have made. You reread and reread this list, as if somehow despite its appearance, it might be helpful to you.

Helpful to you? Of course your anxiety-provoking list is not helpful to you. Quite the opposite. It is to the detriment of you.

You thought you were free of all your anxiety, yet somehow, little by little, it has crept its way back in again. Insidious is this little snake anxiety. How camouflaged it is as it slinks its way in, and you, you are not aware until suddenly it's right in front of you, and it has eaten away at your very foundation. Because of this anxiety, you feel undermined. You have gone back to that old and frayed shopping list. There is nothing worth buying on it.

I shall write you a new shopping list. Throw out the old one once and for all. Replace it with this one that I give to you now. This is your new shopping list I give to you. Understand it well:

"I am a fine person just as I am.

"I mean to do good, and I do.

"I no longer second-guess myself. I leave myself alone. If I don't like now what I said or wrote or did, I cross it out from all lists now, once and for all. What I did or didn't do doesn't matter. It is in the past. I know that the sun comes out, and that rain dries up. I am probably the only person thinking at all about this that I regret. There simply is no percentage in thinking of it, not even once. No matter how recent, no matter how big or how small, when I allow nagging thoughts from the past, I subtract from the strength of loving myself.

"It is important that I love myself. It is important for my sake and for the sake of all around me. I must not regret nor must I find fault with myself, for I am the leader of a parade, and it is for me to lead a calm content parade. My parade goes through all the side streets and the main ones too, and it goes according to the tenor of my thoughts. I want to lead the kind of parade I want to lead. I refuse to lead a dismal one.

"When my thoughts cause me anxiety, I drop those thoughts. I do not keep them for even one minute, for they are destructive thoughts. These thoughts worm their way in and don't want to let go. They have to be evicted, and I am the one who must evict them.

"This is easy to do now. I shake them off. I hardly give them a backward glance, and I say to them clearly:

"Regretful anxiety-provoking thoughts, you have no business being here. You don't belong here. You don't belong anywhere. You are like black-out shades, and you have pulled yourself down, and you have blocked my view.

"You want to keep me small and anxiety-ridden. But I see you now for what you are. You are a malcontent, and you like to step on my sense of well-being and sneak yourself and your other buddy thoughts in.

"You are invasive and erosive.

"You can't stay here any longer. You have to leave, and you have to leave now.

"So now, without further ado, leave. In God's name, I throw you out, and, in God's name, you cannot come back."

many blessings

Do you make Youtube

Do you make Youtube presentations and such? We have two people who already do that, and you are also invited! Of course, I think anyone who can post pictures must be a genius of some kind!

Thank you for loving Heavenletters, dear Monica.

oh Gloria, thak you very

Thank you Pictures, Images and Photos

oh Gloria, thak you very much for your kind words. It is not so complicated. The pictures you can find also in photobucket. But yes really I love pictures, quotes and proverbs and playing with designs and stuff like that...I like beauty...but as you know the most fascinating art you can find on the streets, in shops, at schools, you just take a real picture when people doing simple things, esp. when they show love, they smiling....and then inspirations come....and you just create better world, first in your mind and in real world

much love to you my dear


Usually people do things like this but today a higher Being got hold of Monica and did this.
It's like the echo of a Mother's laugh at something her baby did,
It's like the voice of the Divine Joy calling us in for a dip in eternities follies.
This made me want to go look at you in the forum thingy.
I can't even find words to say "THANK YOU" precious one.

George flabbergasted

the best day of my life

firstly I would like apologize for my mistakes, I don't use English often, so forgive me...:)))

dear George thak you for your kind words. Well today when I woke up I had not pretty good beginning, lately my plans are one big word "DELAY", maybe because I live in Greece ;-) I got use to...but sometimes something explodes....
than i ask myself maybe I do sth wrong, maybe I should change my actions, my methods....that's why patience is so important here.
and that's why today Heavenletter is so important to me...
from the other hand I am so lucky because I feel God, sometimes we say inner voice, which makes me feel better. I insist that is God's one, it's better to feel that i speak with Him, not with myself :-)
what I wanted to say is that i am very grateful that you wrote these great things, that Gloria did and other people.
So thank you so much!! It's correct that our interactions are so importnat to ourselves, we never know what and how can change our thinking, attitude and generally.....

ps. about the title "the best day in my life" I would like to put sth which I found today and again helped me and changed my day

by Gregory M.

Today, when I awoke, I suddenly realized
that this is the best day of my life, ever!
There were times when I wondered if I would
make it to today; but I did!
And because I did I'm going to celebrate!
Today, I'm going to celebrate what an unbelievable life
I have had so far: the accomplishments, the many
blessings, and, yes, even the hardships because
they have served to make me stronger.
I will go through this day with my head
held high, and a happy heart.
I will marvel at God's seemingly simple gifts:
the morning dew, the sun, the clouds, the trees,
the flowers, the birds.

Today, none of these
miraculous creations will escape my notice.
Today, I will share my excitement for life with other people.
I'll make someone smile.
I'll go out of my way to perform
an unexpected act of kindness for someone I don't even know.

Today, I'll give a sincere compliment to someone who
seems down.
I'll tell a child how special he is,
and I'll tell someone I love just how deeply I care
for her and how much she means to me.
Today is the day I quit worrying about what I don't have
and start being grateful for all the wonderful things God
has already given me.
I'll remember that to worry
is just a waste of time because my faith in God
and his Divine Plan ensures everything will be just fine.
And tonight, before I go to bed, I'll go outside
and raise my eyes to the heavens.
I will stand in awe at the beauty of the stars
and the moon, and I will praise God
for these magnificent treasures.
As the day ends and I lay my head down on my pillow,
I will thank the Almighty for the best day of my life.
And I will sleep the sleep of a contented child,
excited with expectation because I know tomorrow
is going to be the best day of my life, ever!

My list of regrets and fear of future

Dear Mother/Father Spirit Creator, Your loving words today regarding regrets
and the anxiety that regrets bring to my heart and mind - they have made a great
and new understanding of the endless harm that they do! Today, I speak to these regrets
that bring anxiety, "begone, you are like a thick blindfold that keeps the sunlight
of God's Love for me - FROM me. So from this moment onward,forward, I
shall know I am essentially a person who loves herself because she has sprung
forth from the Blazing Reality of God's Eternally Loving and Creative mind.
No more lists - ever again, of regrets. I am a radiant Spirit desirous of bringing
more of God's Heaven to this magical Earth.

Sometimes when I am alert

Sometimes when I am alert enough to catch such thoughts when they first come creeping, I shake my mind like a doggie shaking off the rain or snow.

Oh, Charles, I'll probably

Oh, Charles, I'll probably not be able to picture you any other way for a while - ears flapping loudly.....

Hello Heavenletters :o) How

Hello Heavenletters :o)

How are you doing? What a beautiful picture Monicah. It gives me associations to - As up above - down BE LOVE.

We can only act from where we are at any one moment in time, with the consciousness, light and love that we have been able- and willing to release just there and then. Going back to see how we could have done things differently is an illusion. If we in any way could have done things differently, we would have. When we start realizing that something can be done differently, that`s the moment in time when our consciousness will create anew.

I have worked with my thoughts for years and years, and I am really getting the hang of it I think smiling. I am noticing negative thoughts rather quickly now, and can choose to remove them out of sight. It is merely practice. The more we practice the better we get. I am also noticing my good thoughts, and I am grateful to see how they are affecting my life in such a positive way.

How lucky you are, Heart.

How lucky you are, Heart. I'm only starting to find out it's possible at all. Really, I have believed my whole life that I can't help thinking my thoughts. They sounded sooo convincing. Or perhaps I was a little hard of hearing. Or foolish. Or too frightened. Or something, it doesn't seem to matter now. I'm sure it feels very good to you to have some say in what you think. Free of compulsive thinking! Free to think the thoughts that are really and orgininally my own! Wow. How much more meaningful all our exchanges will become when more of us get there.

Strangely, many years of practicing this sort of mind control didn't help me a whit; I would even say it made things worse. And then recently I read a Heavenletter (don't remember which one it was) where God suggest to simply hand everything over to Him. And this definitely works. No, I don't know how something that obvious could have escaped me for so long.

handing over to God

Dearest Jochen,
You are so right handing over to God is the way to go , but sometimes I lose it, remind me how to stay there!
Much love Nancy

Nancy, brave one, it may be

Nancy, brave one, it may be a little more difficult in your case, I don't know. But I think the "procedure" is the same everywhere: just do it again and again. Some days it doesn't feel like very much, you think it's not "working". Then another day you suddenly know, at least for a minute or two, what it means to let God. And then comes a day when, looking out the window or having a cup of tea, you sense clearly and deeply that you have changed. You smile, knowing that whatever happens to you, happines and love and innocence and laughter will be yours after all. The next day may be a gloomy one again, but you notice it does not bother you the way it used to. Or it does and you have to wait for another day to savor that tiny little bit of additional freedom you have won in the meantime. We don't have to be "able" to hand things over. Just the desire, just the intention, that's enough.

Love and blessings,

handing over to God

Dearest Jochen, you are such a comfort. I have the desire and intention that helps Thankyou
Much love Nancy

Dearest Heart, what a

Dearest Heart,

what a beautiful heart you have. your name fits perfectly of course ! Indeed practing more and more helps us to make progress. You shine so beautifully dear !

Much love

Be who you were designed to be.

Say to it, The mirror on the wall: "Who'se the FAIREST OF THEM ALL?"
Believe it when it laughingly calls your earth name and says: "you ain't but the hidden person of your heart is!"
"It looks just like God, so let it act that way. It isn't hard when you get the hang of being still."

George picking up the pieces of his other mirror

George dear, you are

George dear,

you are unconditional love, nothing needs to be added or said to you really, your post just lift me to heaven and all of what you share and shine and the spaces between the words simply ARE LOVE.

Dearest Angel of God, thanks for being here with us.

Much love

George is FLUSTERED!

That's right, I'm flustered. How come?
In a few moments I have guests from out of state coming to see me.
What's the problem with that?
Time, the make believe mirror thingy, Has me wanting to do too much!
How can I comment on darlings GLORIA, MONICA, BERIT, JOCHEN, HEART (whoever that is) and all the Heaven Letters admin that make this oage such and extravagant, elegant, really out of this world experience.
Reading this page is like a sweet mother shaking her sleeping child who is having a nightmare with the words: "It's only a DREAM honey!" The child receive the kiss of LIFE'S ESSENCE, turns over and goes back to sleep, perchance to dream a quieter dream.
This page is like the SHAKE of God's most beautiful, love filled SELF making us KNOW Him in a NEW WAY.
I just don't have the time to say what needs to be said, and that's sad. So I hang my head hoping for you to understand that to me you each are a disguised finger of God pushing my love buttons in that mysterious way that says: "You're blessed and having a good dream NOW." To say thanks to each of you is God's problem, not mine but I have to try.

George blinking the tears of joy away

George, why try? We know and

George, why try? We know and feel what you express. Your appreciation is the cherry on top of the SHAKE.
