Forgiveness

I’d thought I’d follow up a post about guilt with one about forgiveness. Forgiveness is the key to releasing you from the past—and that includes guilt. I personally have a personality type that struggles with forgiveness, so I have to work extra hard sometimes to move past difficult events (and difficult people!). But, once I realized lack of forgiveness only hurts ME, I knew I couldn’t allow myself to hold onto past hurt anymore.

Forgiveness—of yourself and others—is a way to access the super highway of personal freedom. It’s a gift you give yourself. A gift that literally changes your perception and transforms how you experience life.

Acceptance and gratitude turn life lessons into wisdom.

Once we stop fighting with the fact the “something happened” and accept our inability to time-travel into the past and change it—we can embrace ourselves in the present moment, which allows us to experience life from a better and higher place. It doesn’t make us better than anyone else. It just means we refuse to allow others to have such power over us. Seriously think about it. Those we hold in resentment and anger, have a tremendous power in our life. They hold us down. And control our ability to live better and keep us from a higher expression of ourselves. WE are the only ones who can choose to cut the cords to the past and embrace a new future.

Now, I know forgiveness can be extremely hard sometimes. Especially if what happened is a violation of human rights or personal privacy. So, if you find yourself truly trapped and unable to move forward—no matter how hard you try—consider trying hypnotherapy. Hypnosis can connect you with your higher self and empower you to step into your greatness, free of pain, hurt, resentment and unforgiveness. Hypnosis can make the process much less difficult and speed up the transition to freedom.

Think about it. How much lighter you’ll be without the weight of others on your shoulders. Free to be you. Free to be.

Guilt

“Guilt is the source of sorrows, the avenging fiend that follows behinds with whips and stings.” —Nicholas Rowe

Definition of guilt: a feeling of responsibility or remorse for some offense, crime, wrong, etc., whether it’s real or imagined.

So yeah. Guilt is one of those things in life that really doesn’t have a good side, or a silver lining. It’s a force of negative power which limits our understanding and compassion of ourselves and those around us. Essentially, guilt blocks out truth. It keeps us trapped. Believing a viscous cycle of destructive internal dialogue and blocking out our innocence, our humanity, and our right to forgiveness.

In all honesty, the only productive choice to make when guilt arises—is to acknowledge it’s there and then let it go. Yes, maybe something could’ve been done differently, or better, or sooner, or later. But, all we have is now. Regret keeps us tied to the past, where we have little choice but to repeat our thoughts and actions, over and over again. By letting go, we can step forward and embrace a different choice, a new action.

We all deserve to live free of guilt. And each one of us can only free ourselves from its grip, no one can do it for us. You can do it. 🙂
