Forgiveness

Definition of forgiveness

It is letting go of judgment, resentment, or a claim against another. It is an abundant act.

What is the purpose of forgiveness?

It is unconditional love that absolves negative Karma and frees us and others.

Some behaviours and attitudes that are governed by the EGO and stops us in forgiving others:

Behaviours

  • Holding judgment or anger toward another
  • Inability to forgive yourself
  • Blaming others and holding grudges

Attitudes

  • Belief that if you forgive, you may lose control over others
  • Desire to discredit, censure, accuse, or indict another
  • Belief that if you forgive, you were wrong
  • You have feelings of fear, anger and resentment

We can use some of the following techniques to align us with our Higher Self and to help us to forgive others:

  • Breathe deeply, relax, and let the feeling go
  • Allow the God force energy to flow through you
  • Practise unconditional love
  • Do not take another person’s words or actions personally
  • Remain calm and balanced at all times.

Affirmations can also help us to practise forgiveness towards others:

  1. I forgive myself for…….
  2. I forgive ……. for …..
  3. I release all negative and limiting beliefs.

The old threads are unraveling by Julia Myers

Get your needles ready. 
We are stitching a new quilt 
of humanity.
Bring your old t-shirts,
worn out jeans, scarves, 
antique gowns, aprons, 
old pockets of plenty
who have held Earth’s treasures, 
stones, feathers, leaves,
love notes on paper.
Each stitch 
A mindful meditation. 
Each piece of material 
A story.
The more color the better, 
so call in the tribes. 
Threads of browns, whites,
reds, oranges
Women from all nations
start stitching.
Let’s recycle the hate, the abuse, 
the fear, the judgment. 
Turn it over, wash it clean, 
ring it out to dry. 
It’s a revolution
of recycled wears.
Threads of greens, blues, purples
Colorful threads
of peace, kindness, 
respect, compassion
are being stitched
from one continent to the next 
over forests, oceans, mountains.
The work is hard
Your fingers may bleed. 
But each cloth stitched together 
Brings together a community. 
A world, our future world
Under one colorful quilt. 
The new quilt of humanity
