|One of the first things I give a new practice member is the Forgiveness Exercise. |
Forgiveness can clear so much rubbish from your life. Forgiveness does not mean that you are condoning the incident that happened. It means that you are breaking free of the negativity that keeps you bound energetically/spiritually to the person who caused you the harm, even if it was you! You can achieve forgiveness doing this exercise. You can begin healing doing forgiveness.
A grudge holds you in a negative thought and keeps hammering away at you whenever it comes up. So you can be having a great old time and someone brings up something that reminds you of the incident then you have to remember how mad, hurt, upset you were and here it comes all over again. Who needs it!?
Try this: next time something reminds you of the incident you can say to yourself
"That is in the past. I am living in the now. I forgive myself, the others involved and I wish them well. I am thankful for the lessons I've learned because of that and so it is!"
