As I have been going through my meditations each day I had a feeling that something was missing, but I was unsure for some time what it wass.
While I laid in bed one night I was hit with the answer–forgiveness. Here I am in my 30’s and I have been holding on to the past from 15 year ago. Not just holding onto the mistakes of others, but not forgiving myself for the mistakes I have made as well. Sounds familiar right, the Christian traditional Lord’s prayer comes to mind. “Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.”
What is it about forgiveness that is so hard? I have sat through therapy sessions and discussed my pain, discussed my heartbreaks and abuse, and finally set forth the intention that I would forgive and move on with my life, and yet I hadn’t. Because forgiveness isn’t that easy. It isn’t saying “I forgive you” and moving on like it’s over and done. Unless you do it right, it will sit underneath and grow into something you may not even recognize anymore. In truth forgiveness takes TIME and EFFORT.
One thing that I have learned in energy healing is that forgiveness is a powerful force and you have to forgive over and over to break through the barrier.
So now I have chosen to build this into my meditation each day and I recommend you to do the same. Take a moment to forgive those that have trespassed against you and then bless those people with peace, abundance and light. The important part here is to truly mean it.
It’s not going to fix itself in one day, this is an ongoing practice that may take 2 weeks or 2 months depending on your own timeline so don’t feel the need to rush.
