Forgiveness is An Act Of Self Care
Why do we hold on to hurts and why is it s challenging for us to let go?
I believe our minds have a lot to answer for.
Its our minds job to keep us safe so if we feel wounded by an act by someone our minds tell to remember it so we can protect ourselves.
Its a system to keep us safe and I am grateful for it however it does require some discernment on our part.
If we are holding on to a past hurt we are choosing to have that in our energy system.
Having a regular practise of scanning and becoming aware of any past hurts we are holding on to is a beautiful act of self care.
Choosing to release is through forgiveness is enhancing our well being.
I love the ho’oponopono mantra –
* I’m sorry,
* please forgive me,
* thank you,
* I love you.
Repeating this over and over in a meditation allows the energy to move and be released.
Forgiveness is not about saying what was said or done was ok, it is simply deciding to no longer allow it to affect you.
It is a worthy practise to do as an act of self care.
What past wounds and hurts could you release through some gentle forgiveness?
