In order to forgive and be free, we must understand that our opinions and judgments about what happened prevent us from harvesting the learning from our experiences. If we aren’t willing to see this and take responsibility for choosing to live this way, then we’re preventing ourselves from receiving the learning, harvesting the wisdom, applying it and moving on. So, we’re stuck repeating the same things again and again.
When we repeat the same things again and again, either through new experiences of the same patterns, or simply reviewing the past in our mind and becoming upset again and again we’re inflaming our mental and emotional bodies.
Dragging all that emotional and mental baggage with us, slows us down. That baggage is the weight of our unlearned lesson. In life, our Higher Holy Spirit Self has orchestrated for us to heal our negative karma.
Forgiveness is way to let the baggage go, harvest the wisdom, and stop causing the inflammation.
According to the medical doctors, inflammation is the cause of all illness and aging.
Forgiveness is an expression of Love. Love is the only true healer I know. Love heals things back to the root cause, and here’s why.
As Deepak Chopra and those who teach spirituality and quantum physics might say, Love is the ground of our being. In the bible it says that in God we live, move and have our being. In Lyn McTaggert’s powerful book, The Field, she draws together scientific proof of what Einstein knew about interconnectivity.
As a spiritual student, and a student of the great New Thought mystics and teachers such as Jesus, Phineas P. Quimby, Mary Baker Eddy, Emma Curtis Hopkins, Charles and Myrtle Fillmore, Ernest Holmes, Matthew Fox, Joel Goldsmith and A Course in Miracles, I’ve come to know absolutely that we live, move and have our being in a field of Love and that our Mother Father God, Infinite Creator is pure Love Intelligence which is omnipresent, omnipotent, omniactive, omniscience. In other words, one mind, one life, all love. The All in All.
A Course in Miracles tells us, “Teach only love, for that is what you are.” T-6.I.13.
We are Love. Therefore, it makes sense that when we choose to drop our judgements, grudges, resentments and regrets (which is what true forgiveness is), we are dropping the false ideas and beliefs that prevent us from remembering who we are, what we are, and what our purpose is in this world.
Our happiness depends upon our releasing all investment in the idea that we’re bad and that others are bad. Forgiveness is the way for us to do that.
Forgiveness is letting go of the story we made up so we can experience the truth that sets us free.
Forgiveness is the only way I know of for us to quickly and thoroughly heal the concept that we are bad, wrong, not enough, not good, and deserve to be punished.
Every person I’ve ever encountered in my profession as a spiritual counselor, teacher and minister who was suffering from something could experience true healing through practicing forgiveness. I’ve witnessed physical, emotional and mental healing consistently with those who actually practice.
Today I’m beginning one of my Spiritual Counseling Training Intensives. It’s a week-long intensive. Some of the folks who have done these trainings in the past have told me that they have healed chronic pain and illness in the intensive. Checking back with them many months later, they are still healed. I know that it is the effects of the anti-inflammatory, forgiveness practice.
Just think about it for a moment, does holding onto resentment, guilt, blame and shame ever make YOU feel better? Could it ever be a good investment of your energy for YOU.
Forgiveness returns you to your natural vibration of Love and that is healing on a physical, emotional, mental, etheric and spiritual level. Forgiveness is the gift you give yourself for your freedom.
The truth is you ARE Love.
The truth sets you free.
Forgiveness is a way to let go of the story you had and return to Freedom.
If you’re feeling stuck, trapped, depressed, or just sad, forgiveness is the way to Freedom. That’s why I offer my How to Get Over It free forgiveness workshop to those who are interested. If you take the steps I suggest, you will experience more Freedom.
You are the one who can set yourself free.
Freedom is in the mind. I
t’s a choice we make.
It’s the gift we share.
STARTS TODAY: My Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive is not just a professional training, it’s a deeply healing opportunity to let go of false beliefs. If you read the things people have said about how their lives change as a result, you will see that this is an opportunity for profound lasting personal healing.
If you’re willing, let’s do it together! Changing our lives and healing our minds is so much easier when we are the two or more gathered together for the same purpose. To this end, I’m offering another Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive starting on Monday.
