“I forgive myself for ____________
I acknowledge my feelings and actions, that I am human and sometimes makes mistakes.
I release all guilt and surrender myself to divine love.
I call my energy to be directed toward the cause of compassion for myself and anyone else who feels similar to how I feel in this moment.”
Forgiveness is a practice of acknowledgment and surrender. Forgiveness can be a daily meditation in which we check in with our own grievances and surrender to the flow of life events. Even in modern medicine, forgiveness therapy is being recognized as supportive of the healing process.
The first part of forgiveness therapy is an understanding that the offender’s actions may not be condoned by the patient. Rather, the patient is recognizing that the feelings they are holding inside are harmful, and the practice of acknowledgment and surrender releases those harmful emotions. We recognize that an event happened and affected us, and now we can exchange the poison of hate for the elixir of love and compassion.
Written above is a self-forgiveness affirmation and below is a forgiveness affirmation directed toward another person.
“I forgive __________ for ___________
Although I don’t condone the actions, I understand that he/she is human and sometimes makes mistakes.
I release residual resentment, anger, and hatred directed toward ____________, and surrender myself to divine love.
I call my energy to be directed toward the cause of compassion for _________, myself, and anyone else on earth who feels similar to how I feel in this moment.”
Spend three minutes every day this week acknowledging your own and other’s actions and forgive them. If you feel like adding or modifying the affirmation, do it to fit your own unique expression. This daily check-in will free you in ways you didn’t know you existed. Practice daily and lighten your load! Weeeeeeeeee!
Sending you good vibes through the ethers!
