Good Sunday Everyone!
This post is inspired by Father’s Day, even though it is not celebrated today in my country – Poland, it is in many places all over the world where my friends live, and I do feel like the citizen of the world, so I decided to take this opportunity and write about it.
To be even more precise it was inspired by a post of one of my dearest friends in SA where she said a prayer for all fathers who neglect their children, who forget about their children and are indifferent. It triggered something within me to write a little article about forgiveness.
When I think about it, quote from Anne Lammott comes to mind: “Refusing to forgive is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die” yet so many people deny themselves this cleansing, clearing, beautiful thing.
So many people live with this huge burden, carrying it all their lives. I remember once talking to a lady who got a breast cancer and somehow we got to meet ( there are no coincidences) and she shared her story with me, she told me, she knew why she got sick, she could pin point it to the exact feeling. She said it was because she never forgave her father and that resentment, hate even has been building within her energy field for as long as she can remember. When she got sick, she got to do a little soul searching and when she started meditating answers came to her almost immediately.
She asked God to help her find the answer to why she got sick and the answer came very quickly, she saw the images from her childhood, she saw her father abandoning the family, she could see clearly the moment when it happened and felt the painful feelings of this experience. She remembered exactly what she had promised to herself than and there – to never feel anything for him, to bury any memory of him and forget him and she continued living with that heavy load all her life, it naturally influenced her relationships with men, she divorced several times, was estranged with her son and suffered pretty much throughout her entire life. Only when cancer manifested she gathered the courage to face these feelings and come to peace with herself. Her father was long gone, but she visited his grave and forgave him, it was as if a weight had been lifted off her shoulders and she felt that she could breathe again.
The poison that she was voluntarily drinking now turned into a healing potion and she started her road to recovery.
This story made me think of Karol Truman’s book “Feelings buried alive never die” where she explains how to release negative energy patterns that block us from manifesting happy, healthy lives. I remember asking her once about her work and she wrote back describing how her husband was able to eliminate leukemia almost immediately by using this process 23 years ago with depression being a cause and how the disease never returned. The book is definately a must read.
So, with this post I call you to action to release any negativity in your life and a simple way to do that is by forgiving anyone for anything that you felt and feel had been done unjustly, unfairly to you. Leave your Ego on the sideline and just embark on that trip, trust it creates wonders! Take a piece of paper and write down everything that you feel was done to you and you still hold the grudge against and really take your time to do it, there may be also many things you think you cleared but in fact deep in your heart you hold resentment.
Once you have that list ready – start bombarding the people, the events, the moments with love and forgivness, feel it in your heart, DO NOT LET YOUR MIND interfere, do not buy into its chatter that he or she doesnt deserve it, do not let it judge, do not let it blame, just calmy, quietly and with heart filled with love start sending out the vibration of forgivness.
Believe me it can be done, no matter how horrible the event, if you want a real life story, listen to James Twyman of “The Moses Code” when he told a story of his wife being brutally murdered and how he forgave the men who killed her, to forgive the unforgivable that is a true path to peace.
I have recently watched an episode of “Revenge” and you know I wish TV finally stopped manipulating audiences with this blood thirst, fear and instilling negativity in human psyche, but of course there are those behind it who thrive on unconscious masses being programmed accordingly, so it is up to us to really wake up and see through it. Anyway there is a reason why I mention this series, the main character, a young woman makes it her life purpose to avenge her father who was accused of a very serious crime, convicted and imprisoned which separated them and only after his death she learnt the truth and decided to pursue those who plotted against him. The father though asked her not to, asked her to forgive those who turned against him, yet she chose to step on the path of revenge and you can finish the story and you know where this is going.
As Confucius said “Before you embark on the journey of revenge, dig two graves”, therefore dear reader this is my plea to you to let go, release and forgive it all. I had my share of grudges to release and it hasn’t been until recently that I’ve decided to completely and absolutely send love to all those who hurt me, I have decided to implement this beautiful definition of forgiveness by Mark Twain: “Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it”. I have done just that and my heart is lighter, my soul is content and I’ve opened myself up to love and light and I feel like I can do, be, have anything that I desire.
Wishing You courage to step on that path, and beauty that follows:)
Start today, do not wait as life is meant to be filled with love, and joyful bliss, let it go NOW:)
