Understanding and Releasing Vows, Promises, Contracts and Curses with Reiki

Article by Reiki Master Sunetra Dasgupta

We have all heard the saying, never make promises when you are extremely happy and don’t make decisions when you are angry or sad. That is where the “Heavy vows, promises, contracts and curses” comes.

Let’s try to understand vows/promises/contracts/curses – what do they mean?

A vow is an oath taken by a person voluntarily based on a situation to live or act according to some kind of rules and regulation.
A promise is a declaration or assurance that one will do a particular thing or that a particular thing will happen.
A contract is entering into a spoken or written agreement with another person(s).
A curse is an appeal or prayer for evil or misfortune to befall someone or something.

How do these affect us?

We all live in a society where we are conditioned to think and talk in a certain way, rebelling that we are called as revolt without cause or plain lazy or dumb! Hence since a young age we have been taught to achieve something we need to do things in a certain way or behave in a certain way, and for us our elders being our superheroes we take the same vow, and follow their footsteps! It is not wrong, but there is so much more we can achieve only if we let our mind expand.

If a vow taken in the childhood/adolescence, or even as an adult, can have so much impact on us, just think what impact the unknown vows, promises which we have taken across space, life and dimensions, which are mostly unknown to us, can have on our soul, karmas and our day to day living.

Understanding and Releasing Vows, Promises, Contracts and Curses with Reiki

We need to realize that our circumstances in each and every lives were different, and though the condition has changed and we have evolved, our soul is still the same, and it is carrying all those vows, promises, and contracts from our previous lives which does not even resonate with us more! Hence we have seen many cases where health, relationships or money eludes us no matter how honest we are or how hard we try. It may be a curse which has been inflicted on us or our family across generations, or a vow of working in a back-breaking manner to achieve success or a vow of chastity taken in some life, which is still haunting us in this lifetime.

Sometimes there are also conditions which are put forward by our friends and family to get certain things done, they also come across as vows, promises, and contracts.

Ex. Lucy and Mary are best friends; Lucy takes a vow that she will only get married when Mary gets the job in the particular company she always hoped for. Unfortunately, that company is not in the soul plan of Mary, this puts a lot of pressure on Mary and Lucy’s soul, and it is seen as the obstacles that will come in our path.

Hence it is important that we realize we all are individuals and we all have our own karma and soul plan to follow. When we add these conditions we are intertwining a lot of karmas with each other and putting unnecessary pressure on our souls. Next time one should be very mindful of what conditions you are giving to the universe and to the souls! Same goes for curses, you do not know how it can hit you back and with a stronger effect!

Is there a solution to it?

Every night before sleeping I affirm “I clear all my vows, promises, curses across space life and dimensions which does not resonate with me in this life anymore”X3, and I send Reiki healing to it with the emotional symbol or any other symbol I am guided to for that day. I felt a lot of weight has been lifted off from me, emotionally as well as physically and I got a lot of clarity in my life.

Advantages of release

  1. Emotionally less drained
  2. Clarity of thoughts
  3. Being at the moment
  4. Abundance in each and every area of life becomes easy
  5. Toxic situation and people are out of our lives
  6. Working towards ascension and raising vibration
  7. Potential to expand ourselves in all areas a million times
  8. Reduction of negative karma
  9. Better physical and mental health

When we take a rigid vow or promise, we fail to see the bigger picture that the Universe is trying to show us and we may face a lot of repercussions. Hence let everything good come to us with ease, joy, and glory and just be.

    Add the distance symbol too (HSZSN, which encompasses all; dimensions (intra, multi, etc.), parallel aspects and timelines (past, present, future, etc.)), and/or any other intentions/ symbols that are intuitively useful. \ Also, when removing aspects that no longer supports your evolution (VAPOCs… Vows, Agreements, Programs, Promises, Oaths, Curses and Contracts), replace them with the intent “what is and will be good for “All””…\ Always ask for inner guidance, inspiration(s) will come from within to Guide you… The Universal Energy (i.e. Reiki) is always Present… Just open and Be… Namaste…
