How do we forgive?

forgiveness Jul 02, 2020
When we make the decision to be free, within our heart, it requires work, amongst our busy schedules and hectic lives.
 
Our intention is witnessed by our innate self, or the Infinite Source. Setting aside time can be difficult, but is rewarding.
 
🌺 We begin with acceptance of the emotions which arise, in our early stages of opening our hearts to forgiveness.
🌺We give ourselves permission to feel whatever arises.

Forgiveness can be a spark of light within us. It is healing and transformative.
 
We have all experienced a time when we have found it difficult to forgive someone whether it be family, friends, colleagues, or someone we don’t know who has hurt us.
 
Our painful emotional, mental, physical and spiritual experiences are stored deep in our cells and memory, harboured in our subconscious minds and pierce our hearts.
 
These experiences can take a toll on one’s being and it feels like crushed glass flowing through our veins.
 
Sometimes, we feel we can’t shake or get rid of the pain, and this pain finds a home in our body, mind, dampening our spirit's inspiration and expression.
 
We do not need to embark on the process of forgiveness for anyone else but ourselves.
