I have released my attachment to the past, I forgive others and myself for past experiences. I know this forgiveness will free my energy to create positive results.
Is there someone, or more than one person in your life, who you need to forgive? Forgiveness is one of the most powerful gifts that anyone can give because it benefits both the giver and the receiver. The act of forgiveness benefits the giver because it is an act of courage. Forgiving others relieves you of the negative emotions and burdens you have been carrying. Everyone of us has, at some point in our life, found ourselves at odds with our expectations of others. Others that we love, respected or allowed to become part of our life. When our expectations are not met we instinctively hold this negative emotion within ourselves and unless and until we release it… it will grow and ultimately can consume the positive elements of our life. True forgiveness sometimes takes a leap of faith and strong will within us in order that we can bring ourselves to a state of peace. This is so important since without this state of peace, we will live in the opposite which is a state of conflict and stress which over time can even destroy our health.
For those of you with a spiritual foundation or individuals of faith, there is a much more important reason to forgive others. Matthew 6:14-15 For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.
The benefit of forgiveness to the receiver is also great. People who need forgiveness are seeking your kindness, love and leadership. They instinctively tear themselves down until you give them your forgiveness. If you truly want to fulfill any mission in life, if you truly want to create total wealth, you must release your burdens and those of others in your life. In forgiving, you must include forgiveness of yourself as well. What is past is gone. Learn from the past and move on. If you cannot achieve this state of mind, you cannot achieve true wealth because you will not be ready for it.
WISDOM FOR TODAY:
I will take action on my dreams, desires, opportunities and obstacles today. If I wait until tomorrow, I dramatically reduce my chances for success and ultimately may not fulfill my own destiny.
