Self-forgiveness is surfacing as an important element in health and wellbeing. It is an energetic exchange that can fuel us in ways we never imagined.
Imagine being able to release transparent ropes around your waist and ankles that are holding you back in many ways. Do you know what they represent in your life?
When we struggle with self-forgiveness, we are more likely to suffer with higher levels of anxiety, depression, stress, and physical symptoms such as fatigue, pain, or self-destructive behaviors.
The healing power of forgiveness can decrease physical pain and stress, strengthen our immune systems, decrease the risk of a heart attack, and greatly strengthen relationships.
When we begin to forgive ourselves, our heart opens to compassion.
Self- forgiveness starts with each of us, and to be human is to err—to be vulnerable, authentic, and real.
The question is, are we ready to look at where we may be stuck? Are we ready to release ourselves from conflict?
We Are Worthy
There is wisdom in practicing self-forgiveness and we get plenty of opportunities to master it.
“The action of entering the center point of the labyrinth represents the moment you forgive yourself. This is the action of your own forgiveness and of reclaiming the power, or the impeccability, of your own word–of your own intent.”
Universal law teaches us that unconditional love does not require us to be the object of abuse. Sometimes people or situations appear so we can learn to step into our power. It is an opportunity to learn how to love and have compassion.
When we are smack in it, we can’t see or think clearly. We get swept into the injustice and unfairness that we feel is happening. It feels like a deep black hole that keeps getting deeper and wider.
In time and with practice, we are able to stand up and look down into the hole and see that it was never really that deep, only a pothole to trip over so we can learn to be whole.
