From time to time, we may get caught up in a cycle of regret, remorse or resentment. These states of being drag us into the mire of negativity and drain our resources.
Here’s a simple affirmation to help free you up. I don’t know where it came from but I thank those who created it and those who made me aware of it, for I find it has fierce healing power.
I forgive myself for all those things for which I need forgiveness.
I forgive all those who need my forgiveness.
I ask forgiveness from all those whose forgiveness I need.
Repeated in sets of three, it gains power and momentum.
When you are saying it, allow transgressions to arise and be forgiven. Visualize those with whom you are in resentment or remorse and open yourself to mercy, for yourself and for them. Be willing to allow forgiveness to happen. If your heart will not yet open sufficiently to allow it, ask your Source to allow the forgiveness for you until you are able to do it.
Notice what happens. Notice the feelings that arise. Notice where you close, where you are able to open.
Keep making space for it all.
Keep letting go.
Regular practice of forgiveness increases our capacity for happiness.
