“Forgiveness is setting someone else free and then realizing that you were the prisoner.” ~Max Lucado
To wake and realize that you have been suffering in a prison of your own making through the pains you continue to carry based on what someone else did or didn’t do to you is like arising from the dead. You are finally free of the chains in your mind that keep you from moving forward in your life.
Forgiveness is a special act of giving to yourself in actuality. You do not have to announce to anyone that you have made the move to forgive someone. If you do choose to share with someone that you forgive them it may be what they need to move in the power of forgiveness themselves. Be aware of your motive for sharing you forgive someone or ask for their forgiveness. It must be with pure intent to move forward in peace and love, friends or not.
Forgiveness is a conscious act that you move through in your own mind and soul. Once you have released the pain and made peace with that which was you embrace the message that it has taught you and understand that it was all meant for your own growth. Through forgiving you find a new peace and a strength to continue on your life journey as the doors open and welcome you into new and wonderful experiences.
Today, I speak truth into the light of the Universe for you knowing that you have found the peace in mind and the place in heart to forgive and release all that has hurt you, because the good news is you are still standing. You have found the power to move forward and release the pain from stifling your success freeing you to LIVE YOUR POWER.
I know that in this moment you understand fully that the power of forgiveness is totally for you and not so much about the other person. You are free and living a new peaceful expression as you come to understand the new you.
And so it is
Note: Be cautious. Forgiveness and forgetting are two different things. We can’t forget the experience because it is where the lesson lies. We choose to not be hurt and carry a grudge or allow the experience to create negative feelings within us toward ourselves and others.
