During our lifetimes on this planet we have taken vows that resonated with us in each lifetime. Because we took those vows over and over in each lifetime we carry that energy into each life. Everyone has had past lives taking the vows or been influenced somehow by these vows.
Below is a list and definitions of each vow we will assist you with releasing during the Releasing with Grace Workshop.
Vow of Poverty
The renunciation of the right to individual ownership of property as part of a religious vow.
The main aim of giving up materialistic world is to withdraw oneself from sensual pleasures (as they are fake and temporary as per these religions).
By releasing the Vow of Poverty you open yourself to see and utilize your blessings and your prosperity on all levels.
Vow of Obedience
The act of obeying; dutiful or submissive behavior with respect to another person
It forms part of the vows that Christian monks and nuns must make to enter the consecrated life.
By releasing this vow you are enabled to release relationships that not for your highest good. You stop worrying about what other people think.
Vow of Celibacy/Chastity
Chastity: abstaining from sexual relations (as because of religious vows)
Chastity is sexual behavior of a man or woman acceptable to the moral norms and guidelines of a culture, civilization, or religion.
By releasing this vow you will release the guilt of enjoying a healthy sexual relationship with your partner.
Vow of Silence
A vow of silence is a religious vow, usually taken in a monastic context, to maintain silence. Known as Mauna in Hinduism, Jainism, and Buddhism, the practice is integral Christian and Islamic traditions as well. Apart from that it is also followed as a spiritual practice
Pythagoras imposed a strict rule of silence on his disciples; the Vestal virgins also were bound to severe silence for long years. Many similar examples could be quoted.
Religious orders such as the Benedictines have insisted on this as one of the essential rules of their institutes
In releasing this vow you enable yourself to speak and hear your truth.
Now you have an understanding of the importance of releasing these vows. In releasing the vows you empower yourself and balance karma with those who had any part of those vows. Not only are you assisting yourself, you are assisting others. You are relieved of many burdens you have been carrying for life times!
If you are ready to move forward with your life and/or spiritual journey, if you are tired of blockages or not being able to finish what you start, this workshop can assist you. The soul retrieval portion of the workshop is going to deal with releasing Vows of Poverty, Chastity, and Silence. We've all taken these vows many times during our past lifetimes, and now is the time to release them. It is time to be free. Free to express who we are, and free to receive all the Universe has to give us.
