Forgiveness: 4 Things You Should Do to Let Go of Resentment

Forgiveness: 4 Things You Should Do to Let Go of Resentment
To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you. ~Lewis B. Smedes One of the most beautiful and life changing gifts you can give to yourself and to others is the GIFT of FORGIVENESS. I know forgiveness can seem to many of us like an impossible, scary thing to do and I know that a lot of times we look for reasons not to forgive, but I want you to know that forgiveness is not so much about them as it is about you own rself, your inner peace, health, happiness and wellbeing. Forgiveness is a gift you give to yourself first and foremost and then to others. I want you to be free of pain and I want you to discover the incredible sense of freedom and inner peace that comes your way the moment you give FORGIVENESS a chance, and I trust that what I’m going to share with you today will help you do just that. This is a very powerful and easy ancient Hawaiian practice, called Hoʻoponopono, that contains 4 beautiful phrases that are meant to help us let go of resentment, forgive and allow love to govern our hearts: 1. I AM SORRY With eyes closed, imagine the person you want to forgive/ be forgiven by, sitting in front of you and repeat the 3 magical words to them: I am sorry. It takes a strong person to say sorry, and an ever stronger person to forgive. ~Unknown If you feel a lot of anger and resentment towards this person or you believe they might feel towards you, it will feel fake at first but as you go on with the practice things will change and you will let go of the resistance little by little. 2. PLEASE FORGIVE ME Nothing good has ever came from holding on to resentment, so why not let go of it and allow inner peace and love to govern your heart? Whether this person hurt you or you hurt him/her, it doesn’t really matter. All that matter is for you to ask and allow the forgiving process to take place by saying: Please forgive me. 3. THANK YOU At first, you might not understand why do you need to say, thank you to somebody who treated you unkindly/ you treated unkindly, and of course, the resistance will be there, but as you will go deeper and deeper into the practice, things will change and it will all make sense to you  I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought, and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder. ~G.K. Chesterton  4. I LOVE YOU You will feel a lot more resistance when you get to this part and like I said it earlier, it will feel very fake at first but as you go deeper into the practice, you will find yourself feeling a lot more relaxed and at peace. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. ~Martin Luther King, Jr. I am in love with this practice because it has helped me let go of resentment and forgive not only those many people who treated me unkindly for one reason or another over the years, but also myself, keeping me sane in a sometimes insane world  So what do you say, are you going to use this practice to help you let go of resentment, forgive and heal your heart? P.S. Remember the magic words: I am sorry, Please forgive me, Thank you, I love you!
