Hello Beautiful Hoomans,
Im in the midst of a 30 day Forgiveness Sadhana.
Just notice what you are feeling and thinking when I said that. FORGIVENESS....
Forgiveness isn't so popular today. Vengeance and non-forgiveness is much more hip as a remedy against those who have hurt us.
Just bear with me, i'm not asking anyone else to forgive. But I will tell you how its going for me.
Firstly, I decided to do this practice because I had constant regret, anger, resentment and a huge drop in vibration many times a day. I was thinking ruminating thoughts about past events and I got down about feeling down. I couldn't shake it, no amount of healings and meditation would change it.
All of a sudden I was sitting on my balcony ruminating about some past hurt and I had the light go on. FORGIVENESS. I hadn't done that for a whilst. Ahhh, Thank You, a nudge from the divine.
*I will add this caveat that no-one should EVER do Forgiveness work until THEY ARE READY.
It must be done with the Inner Child on board, it must be done gently and in stages.
As a spiritual aspirant Forgiveness is a pillar of my practice. Grace is cultivated through Giving, Forgiving and Serving. Forgiveness is a tonic for the heart and I realised that I was the one holding onto my negative feelings from the past.
What i've found from 2 weeks of daily forgiveness is So. Much. Peace.
I have NO resentment, anger, hatred, sadness toward my past. Just a neutral feeling. I feel i'm not tied to my past. My heart is so expansive-i feel like I can really breathe. Im infused with gratitude every day. There is no heaviness in my body whereas before there was and I just didn't realise. Im happier and so hopeful. My vibration is constant and can't be shaken. It feels wonderful, and so FREE.
When I started doing the practice, my ego jumped in and said angrily "If you forgive then they get away with it", "Who will you be if you forgive? A weak person", "They don't deserve your forgiveness".
I really had to parent myself and just talk myself through it, but it got easier and I soon found I could't wait to let that S**t go.
My practice consists of this..
A meditation to very gently release past hurt, hate, resentment, sadness etc as a result of pain.
I forgive others (as much as I can that day), then ask for forgiveness, then forgive myself.
Then I do Ho'opono'pono song.
Then cut cords to the past.
Then do gratitude and freeing myself from the past.
Some days/situations i'm doing in layers, being very loving with myself. Some days I can feel the entire event wiped from my consciousness. It feels emotional, liberating, sacred, and gentle.
My heart has expanded and developed exponentially.
I feel like I can take up more space.
I have so much less negativity come my way every day because I let go of loads of past garbage that is not even happening today!
I was once told that resentment is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.
I have a wonderful resource from Shakti Durga which is a forgiveness meditation and mantra, it includes cutting cords and discourse about forgiveness. https://shaktidurga.com/shop/making-forgiveness-real/
If you feel that you are a slave to past events. You are carrying negative feelings and thoughts that you don't want to hang onto anymore. If you feel regret, depression and anxiety because of the past, I can help you..
If you'd like to be fully free of your past and step into a brighter, more loving future contact me and we can do some gentle forgiveness work in a healing.
It is gentle, never doing more than you want. You are fully heard, seen and acknowledged, I hold you in loving energy and fully support you to become the You that you wish to be.
Forgiveness takes courage, i've been there... I also believe that when we believe in ourselves and commit to a better future then this is an investment of freedom that is priceless.Why not take a chance on yourself?

With Love and so much Tenderness...
