To Forgive is not as smooth as it sounds, I know…
Is not the most lovable inner process, moreover when doing it for ourselves. Sometimes it’s better and smarter to do so, whether there has been an apology or not.
Now, did anyone apologize to Jesus at the cross? Moreover, before he asked our Father:
“Forgive them, for they not know what their doing.”
Returning to our contemporary time, when feeling ready to embrace forgiveness, there is a beautiful outcome as reward:
Letting go and moving on.
When letting go, (sounds like a surrender or defeat), however there is actually the opposite happening.
There is surrender of attachment and attachment is the favorite food of the EGO (Edging God Outside),
AKA The Shadow based on Dr. Carl G. Jung’s legacy to understand the human mind, and as such to the mental health field.
When there is forgiveness it brings self healing by activating our inner skill of resilience.
Resilience allows the moving on process which will take you to a higher self version by accepting the past experience as one of your best lifetime lessons.
During my physical recovery, I meditated with a prayer I will share.
And when I get the release from the Physiatrist (to get back into my advanced yoga practice, as a lifetime student, in the event that soon I will start facilitating without performing postures).
I will certainly write an “IT IS FINISHED”
Here is the Prayer…
If I have harmed anyone in anyway either consciously or unconsciously through my own confusion.
I ask their forgiveness.
If anyone has harmed me in anyway consciously or unconsciously through their own confusion.
I forgive them.
And if there is a situation, I am not yet ready to forgive.
I forgive myself for that.
For all the ways that I harmed myself, negate, doubt, belittle myself, judge or be unkind to myself through my own confusion.
I forgive myself.
Last but not least;
“Allow yourself to rest. Your Soul speaks to you in the quiet moments in between your thoughts.”
with light and love 💗
