Writing Detox: Letting Go of Fear

In my “Loving Pink” heart spa, we learn to raise our vibration of Love by detoxing from fear.  We do this through a little exercise I call “heartwriting." 

Exercise #1

Think of this exercise as if you were writing your shopping list. There is no judgment here…just release your fears on your paper. 

Exercise #2 

Next to each fear, write an affirmation that would help you detox that fear so you may achieve wellness. Write something like: “I have no fear of failure because I know I am talented and can always try again.”


“I have no fear of being attacked because I am always protected and in a state of Love.” Then practice saying these affirmations at least twice a day. 

Exercise #3

For another 5 minutes, please finish this sentence: 

I believe the main reason I am afraid of letting myself love or be loved is…
