Resentment is a poison that can do a lot of damage to those clinging on to it. But forgiveness can undo the damage.

The power of Forgiveness

I know forgiveness can seem to many of us like an impossible, scary thing to do and I know that a lot of times we look for reasons not to forgive, but I want you to know that forgiveness is not so much about them as it is about you. Your own self, your inner peace, health, happiness, and wellbeing. Forgiveness is a gift you give to yourself first and foremost and then to others.

I want you to be free of pain and I want you to discover the incredible sense of freedom and inner peace that comes your way the moment you give forgiveness a chance, and I trust that what I’m going to share with you today will help you do just that.

This is a very powerful and simple ancient Hawaiian practice, called Hoʻoponopono, that contains 4 beautiful phrases that are meant to help us let go of resentment, forgive and allow love to govern our hearts.

How to Let Go of Resentment

1. I am sorry

With eyes closed, imagine the person you want to forgive/ be forgiven by, sitting in front of you and repeat the 3 magical words to them:

I am sorry.

“It takes a strong person to say sorry, and an even stronger person to forgive.” ~Unknown

If you feel a lot of anger and resentment towards this person or you believe they might feel towards you, it will feel fake at first but as you go on with the practice, things will change and you will let go of the resistance little by little.

2. Please forgive me

Nothing good has ever come from holding on to resentment, so why not let go of it and allow inner peace and love to govern your heart?

Whether this person hurts you or you hurt him/her, it doesn’t really matter. All that matter is for you to ask and allow the forgiving process to take place by saying:

Please forgive me.
