Forgiving

Part of being free means learning how to forgive. Forgive yourself first and then extend that forgiveness to those who have harmed you.

You see, one of the biggest misconceptions about forgiveness is that by forgiving someone we somehow make right what they did. We believe that if we forgive, then we condone their actions.

 

Nothing could be further from the truth.

 

You see, your dreams and your Journey are present time things. They know nothing of the past and are unconcerned with the future. Dreams manifest in the now. The energy of your Journey only exists now. There is no other time that it can exist.

 

So, forgiveness breaks our chains with the past. It helps us to learn from the past and no longer let any traumatic experiences dictate our present moment. That way, we are free to manifest here and now, no longer ruled by the events of the past.

 

Forgiveness is actually a very selfish thing. Forgiving someone doesn’t mean you condone the wrongs; forgiving someone means you are no longer willing to let pain from the past hold YOU down from living your dreams.

 

Dreams and your Highest Potential take major energy to create. If you’re too busy using your energy and attention to keep the past alive, there is no way you will muster enough energy to bring them into reality.

 

So, today, not for them, but for YOU, forgive them. Forgive them with all your heart. Create enough space and acceptance in your heart so that no event of the past can harm you any longer. Let go of the pain and step into this present moment renewed and re- energized.

 

Forgiveness is the business of love. Your energy and attention has to be in there, here and now, for you to be able to take action in the now for your dreams and Highest Potential to materialize.

 

Forgive them, not for their sake, but because your dreams are counting on you to.

  1. This blog post is so timely ONCE AGAIN!

    Synchronicity –> This morning I picked my weekly rune – it came up Forgiveness.
    As I contemplated it meaning, the first thing I noticed was “make peace with the past!”

    then the following came to me….

    Forgive = For + give = Give + forth = I give forth thanks to those whom, in the past, I felt have wronged me. They have given me a lesson in how I made a misatke and perhaps wronged myself. I determined to seek out any missing pieces of the jigsaw in the realtionship I have with myself.

    I found I made a pact with myself as an infant to “fix the separateness” in my family. But I didnt include me. I didn’t start with me – and so I was bound to fall at the first hurdle. It has taken me nealy 60 years to find this out. I give forth thank to those who have helped me and I give forth thanks to myself for the lesson now learned.

    Where do I go from here? I start by bringing issues to the surface as they arise and noticing them without judgement. As I notice them and let them be, no judgement, they will eventually leave.
