When you forgive someone, it doesn’t mean what the other did to you is ok. However by forgiving that person and / or yourself, it sets you FREE from the pain and suffering that the scenario has created within you. Give yourself the gift of forgiveness.
Even if you think you are not ready to forgive someone, start with baby steps to open the doorway. Think of one person you have been unable to forgive in your life. This could be yourself. Just by being receptive to the idea of forgiving the person or situation, the door to letting go of past pain and suffering, can now open.
Suggestion #1: Practice the Hawaiian Huna – Forgiveness ritual, or Ho’oponopono prayer. Relax into your loving self. Bring to mind the person or situation you would like to forgive. Start the process by feeling love within your heart and saying:
“I am sorry”
“Please forgive me”
“I love you”
Repeat this process until you feel this truth within.
Suggestion #2: Find a photo of the person you’d like to forgive. Kneel in front of that photo and bow to them. Then say,
“I forgive you.
Please forgive me for everything that has happened up until now.
Do this for 21 days. It is very simple, but has a very powerful effect.
