Forgiveness brings you inner peace in this moment and releases you for the future, by dealing with the past: the events, deeds, actions, rewards, achievements, failures, crimes, thoughts and feelings which every person carries around with them. People tend to judge one another, and themselves, by what they have done in the past. Your own sense of who you are is colored by, and dominated by, what you have done in the past and what you perceive that other people have done to you.
Most of us have tried to change and improve other people. It’s natural to want to change other people but you must realize that you can not change others you can only change yourself. You can do this by forgiving and releasing. As long as you hold on to your own negative beliefs and unforgiveness you will remain stuck in anger, fear, hurt, depression, overweight, stress and bad health.
When you have done something wrong to someone else; or you feel that they have wronged you; this colors and even dominates your awareness of them and yourself. You can’t let it go. You keep thinking about what you, or they have done. Most often, you keep talking about it to other people, rather than speaking directly to the people who were actually involved. Then your frustration at not being able to change people will turn sour and bitter, and harden into unforgiveness. They’ll never change. I’ll never change.
Remaining stuck in unforgiveness can manifest in your life as not just emotional difficulties and interpersonal problems but also impaired cardiological, neurological and immune systems. Bottling up feelings of anger simply re-enforces the feelings that you’ve been treated wrong and can lead to high blood pressure and heart disease.
There are methods of forgiving and releasing and I can teach them to you. By forgiving and releasing, you will shift from a negative attitude to a positive one.
