How to Forgive Others and Heal Yourself

27 Jun


Healing Power of Forgiveness

Forgive your friends, your enemies and all who have ever wronged you.  When you send love and forgiveness to others, you are bringing resolution.  You’re also doing something for yourself—you’re freeing yourself from entanglements of this and previous lives.

Look at the people you are tied to today.  Look at your situation with your job, your family and everything that affects you.  Most of us have difficult people in our lives.  Sometimes we can’t seem to resolve things with them and to disentangle ourselves.  Often it’s because we’ve never forgiven old hurts and old wrongs, some from previous embodiments, so they hang on.  And non-forgiveness, which is hardness of heart, binds us so tightly to people that we never seem to get out of the wrangle, the arguments and the problems.

Therefore, forgive and forget, and move on.  Bless life and be free.  The greatest liberation you can achieve in this life is the ability to forgive all people profoundly, deeply and with the totality of my being.  It is even possible to forgive those who have committed heinous crimes. Of course, this is easier said than done, as we all know.  It’s not easy to forgive those who have committed crimes against the soul, the mind, the body.  So what is the appropriate response to the evildoer?

Resolution is a two-step process.  First, we invoke divine mercy and forgive the soul of the one who committed the wrong, and we also ask God to forgive that soul.  Second, we invoke divine justice for the binding of the not-self of the wrongdoer.  We also ask God to give the soul the opportunity to repent of her deeds and to strengthen herself so she can resist the urge to do wrong when it knocks again at her door.  Engaging in this process can help us forgive even those whom we have the hardest time forgiving.

Each night as we lay our bodies down to sleep, it’s the end of a cycle and we have a chance to forgive.  It’s our time to let go of all discord, all problems and to forgive every part of life.  We want to turn the page of the day and for it to be finished and resolved.

So we practice forgiveness every day, every night.  And as we do, we are taking firm steps towards our goal.  For little by little as we work through our emotions (including anger), forgive ourselves, forgive others and come to resolution, portions of ourselves are daily becoming part of our Higher Self, our Real Self.

I AM Life of God-Direction

Blaze thy light of Truth in me.

Focus here all God’s Perfection,

From all discord set me free.


Make and keep me anchored ever

In the Justice of thy plan—

I AM the Presence of Perfection,

Living the Life of God in man! (3x)
