Letter for Release

Write a letter indicating ALL that you desire to release from your life and affairs. This can include doubt, fear, criticism, judgment, condemnation; as well as erroneous beliefs in poverty, age, sin, sickness, disease, and death. Release and let go of all the negative aspects in your life and your affairs.

A Letter to God

Cleansing is important, but we must replace the negatives with the positives; thus, the importance of writing a letter to God. Write a letter to God listing your goals and your dreams. Be certain to make the letter positive, not maybe or if. For with the Spirit of Christ in charge, all things are possible.


Should you have additional questions, please contact Christ Universal Temple at (773) 568-2282. We look forward to you joining us to learn how to release the past, forgive yourself and others, and create the life you desire.
