Forgiveness

Seeded within your heart is the language of Spirit that is waiting to be activated and manifested on Earth. The ways of Love are catalyzed through this language. It is Forgiveness. Through words of Forgiveness you activate compassion, understanding, love, and peace to flow from your heart into your body, from you to others. Allow yourself to grow into the life-affirming power of Forgiveness and release yourself from the past.

Forgiveness Meditation

Invite your heart to open to Forgiveness and to receive this dynamic healing power. Breathe deeply and slowly as you mindfully set a heart-felt intention to receive the transformational energies of Forgiveness for yourself, for others, and for the planet. Invite the energies of Forgiveness to flow into the crown of your head and down into your heart. Sit for a few moments and breathe deeply and slowly. Feel your desire for forgiveness to soothe your soul. The more you sit and feel how much you want Forgiveness to fill you, the greater drawing power you have to attract Forgiveness into your being.

Feel your desire for Forgiveness to release any burdens you carry. Invite your body to relax. Invite your body to open to any place where you feel resistance or tightness. Tell your body it is safe to open to Forgiveness. Again, sit and wait. When you are ready, ask for the Forgiveness energy to enter into your being and go where it is most needed. Relax and allow the energy to enter through the crown of your head, into your heart and then allow it to go where your body needs it. Receive, receive, receive. Savor this moment and receive for as long as the energy moves in you. Enjoy your renewal!

A New Look at the Power of Forgiveness

As a spiritual drawing power, Forgiveness opens the door for the flow of grace from Spirit to flow into the heart, mind and body. As grace gently touches those protected and vulnerable places within you, you feel a sense of lightness and playfulness that brings you back to a more innocent place in time. This place is your home where you are united with your Divine Source. Lovingly and gently, each strand of your being is caressed by Forgiveness and the resistance of many layers of turmoil, despair, and isolation melt away. Spirit imprints upon these freed strands the life-affirming energies of peace, harmony, compassion, joy as the vibrations of LOVE attune you to the eternal Presence.

Forgiveness is safe. It is a place where you are protected by your Divine Source as the One who loves you thoroughly, knows you completely, understands you perfectly, and accepts you just as you are so fully. Here you are REAL. You receive the healing you desire and here you are made WHOLE.

Forgiveness is received through trust. When you allow yourself to trust the Inner Source seeded within you, you open the door to receive these bounteous blessings. It is safe to trust, perhaps for the first time, this place within you. Even if you feel it as small or closed-off to you, it is there. You access it by wanting this place to reveal itself to you and then wait to receive a reply.

Still your mind for a moment by focusing on a beautiful thought or picturesque scene and wait.

The Inner Voice will respond. It may take some time, but you will receive what you need. You can practice this technique over and build Forgiveness into your being as you ingest its life currents. Forgiveness flows when your willingness to receive it is at its most sincere and heart-felt. You control the flow of forgiveness by your passion and enthusiasm for it to melt away all of your built-up guilts, shames, resentments, angers and other burdens you have been carrying far too long. In time, all of these burdens will be gone and you will be living a new and freed life.

As life’s journey takes you into new experiences, you will receive many opportunities to practice receiving and giving forgiveness. When you encounter a situation where your “hot buttons” are pushed, simply relax into the “yucky” energy and center yourself in intention to receive Forgiveness. Feel your desire or craving for forgiveness and allow yourself to receive it in your heart. It may time some time to perceive this, yet you are growing forgiveness within you over time the more you practice this. Allow it to build naturally and gracefully through each decision you make to practice receiving and giving forgiveness.

Eventually, you will be able to build forgiveness into your being to the extent that you will immediately respond to all potentially hurtful situations with Forgiveness and thereby become a healing vessel for others as they receive the spiritual balm they need for their upliftment. As each person practices and masters forgiveness, the cumulative efforts of more and more people will significantly alter the way many people respond to hurtful situations and provide more opportunities for healing in greater number of increasingly complex and wide-spread social problems.

The antidote to all of life’s hurtful conditions of poverty, greed, hatred, intolerance, anger, shame, and guilt is Forgiveness. Practice it often and see how much good YOU bring into the world!

Significance of Practicing Forgiveness Daily

Forgiveness is the most powerful healing agent of Love on the planet. It is a spiritual power that we have access to and can have as much as we need, yet living in forgiveness implies that we want to adopt this attitude throughout our day to day existence. Allowing forgiveness to become a daily part of life requires practice. It suggests that you are interested in allowing what another person does or what a life situation offers to be understood and accepted without judgment. It takes time to build forgiving into a natural and effortless response: that you would feel inclined to be forgiving instead of condemning or angry or other negative emotions when confronted with a hurtful situation. It takes time for your body to yield its inner reserves of defensiveness to that of being open and receptive to another person’s negative behavior, without feeling the need to protect yourself. Yet it is entirely possible to practice forgiveness each day until it becomes a habit. Eventually the habit becomes less noticeable and more of an instinctive response.

Forgiveness paints a landscape in your emotions and physical body of non-judgment. Each time you consciously choose to be forgiving in place of condemning or upset, you actively create a link within your body and emotions to receive a higher energy that is capable to filling your being with a sense peace, harmony, and tolerance. Your choosing to be forgiving is what creates the environment both in mind and body to align with and receive the information you need to successfully handle the situation at hand. It does not necessarily mean that you are condoning another person’s behavior, but you are acknowledging that something is out of balance within them and allowing a higher response to enter into the situation that can heal and restore peace and harmony into it. It is these little steps of forgiveness that build healing into life’s situations and eventually help you to respond instinctively with a compassionate, understanding, accepting, and loving manner to any situation that is potentially harmful to all parties. It helps another person to receive love and acceptance, which is a basic core need. Forgiveness needs an opening to integrate the blessings of Spirit into life’s pitfalls. Your conscious consistent choice to be forgiving provides the opening Spirit needs to bring healing into turbulent situations.

Imagine a world where people responded to one another instinctively with acceptance and understanding rather than condemnation or suspicion. How do we move from this dynamic to the healthier one? It is through the power of forgiveness. It is by choosing to be forgiving in place of showing anger or judgment against someone or a particularly painful situation. One small choice at a time allows the habit of forgiveness to be cultivated within building a strong and healthy response mechanism that is in alignment with the ways of Spirit.

Barriers to Forgiveness

Forgiveness is offered in a free flow from Spirit into our hearts and bodies, yet it is at the human end where we block its reception. Feelings of unworthiness, guilt, shame, self-justification, self-righteousness, anger, intolerance, and other powerful negative feelings all create a barrier to being and living in the flow of forgiveness. While you may feel that these feelings need to be there to protect yourself, notice how you feel in your body when you are in the grasp of these negative emotions. Do you feel resistance? Is there a feeling of diminishment of self or powerlessness? If you notice this, then you are blocked from receiving the flow of forgiveness. What re-establishes the flow into your mind and body? It is simple. It is the desire for forgiveness.

You may simply change your thoughts from those of thinking you are justified in withholding forgiveness to a simple inquiry into the realm of “what can forgiveness do for me to help me overcome my negative feelings?” That alone is enough to start the flow, and the more you recognize that you want and need forgiveness as an antidote for what you are experiencing, the greater will you open the spigot in your mind and body to receive more of what Spirit wishes to give you from your internal Source.

The Spirit Source within you loves you beyond measure, knows you better than you know yourself, and when you are heart-fully open to your Spirit Source, then does the flow of Divine Love move into your body with the spiritual antidotes for your troubles. Forgiveness is the first ray of love to wash away the negative feelings and provide the open space for more spiritual information to inlay in your mind and body. Then comes the information you need to conceptually understand the situation from a higher perspective along with the feelings of understanding, compassion, acceptance and love. This is what brings your body and mind into that restful state of peace and balance that underscores healthy living.

We carry around so much extra weight in our feelings and our bodies because of the powerful emotional toxins of pain and anger. In receiving forgiveness, this giant weight is lifted from us and in place is a lightness that allows joy and peace to enter and grow. It is so healing. And the body weight alleviates as the urging for self-healing grows stronger.

You can live in that place more and more each day as the forgiveness practice becomes a habit. No matter if the issue or situation is petty or extreme, forgiveness is the powerful divine force within you that opens the door for profound and permanent healing to occur: for yourself and others.

It is this simple, but it does require effort on your part as you have the free will choice to accept this or not. But if wallowing in negative feelings makes you feel diminished, depleted, hopeless and despairing, why not give forgiveness a chance and see how it can reverse the situation?

The Body Response to Forgiveness

Our bodies are very receptive to Forgiveness. It is as if our bodies are naturally programmed to receive Forgiveness. Guess what? They are! This is an inherent part of our nature, seeded into us through divine life plans by our Divine Source—our Spirit Parents. The energies of forgiveness imprint a quality or essence of spiritual information that sparks a biological language in the physical cells. It thereby sets off a chain reaction that stimulates the body’s healing bio-electro-chemical functions. You feel as if the burdens you have held in your body for so long actually melt off you! And it feels so very delicious.

There is a lightness of being that accompanies the release of the burdens. This occurs physically, emotionally, and mentally and brings about greater emotional stability and mental clarity. The healing bioelectrochemicals produced by receiving the Forgiveness energy downloading into your physical cells brings about a feeling of well-being and peacefulness. Added to this comes new insights and ideas, attitudes and awareness of creativity and playfulness. The emotional component of forgiveness is as significant as the physical part. All burdens can be washed away with Forgiveness when your will and trust are sincerely open.

So what happens in the body? Forgiveness enters the body like a stream of golden light that has a consistency of honey. It softens the hard layers of resistance in the various places within the joints, tissues and organs where memories are encoded into many patterns. As the softening occurs, bio-electro-chemicals are released and travel up to the brain via the meridian pathways and nerve pathways. In the brain certain healing and restorative neurotransmitters and other cellular communicative transmitters are released and travel back into the affected areas and give healing information to the cells. Some of the healing bio-electro-chemicals act as switches and turn off and/or correct neural receptors; sometimes you just feel peace upon peace with new feeling being stimulated by hormonal receptors. And all of this happens almost instantly.

As Forgiveness is released into the cells, the emotional and mental behavior patterns that cause the cell to decay because the memories they contain are hurtful shifts. Forgiveness expands the hardened decayed cells and breathes more space in between them. New information is then coded into the cells. Some information is physical: it tells the cells what to do to repair themselves; some is emotional: it provides you will feelings of peace and security, for example. You literally feel like you are being blown up with air very gently as Spirit stretches your capacity for more healing. These energy exchanges happen sometimes without human consciousness, yet the body responds to each and every little nuance of forgiveness as it imprints a new language into the cell. The body loves Forgiveness!

The body receives what it needs and it can bring itself back into alignment through its innate self-correcting processes by receiving regular and frequent doses of Forgiveness. The feelings of wanting to be whole, or satisfied are receiving through forgiveness and the resulting effect in the physical body is one of renewal and rebirth. Try it and see for yourself!
