Hello, my friends! Yesterday we discussed letting go and how important it is to let go. Today, we are taking a step further, by talking about forgiveness.
So, letting go is releasing old energy and emotions that you have tied to a certain scenario that happened to you. Forgiveness is similar to the act of letting go, because it entails dissolving old emotions and energy linked to a situation. However, forgiveness takes it a step further. When you forgive, you are making peace with what happened, how you were treated, or how you reacted.
Today I am challenging you to forgive someone who has hurt you, mistreated you, or upset you in some way. It could be someone involved with the situation you worked on yesterday, or it could be from another time completely. If you choose another time, I highly suggest repeating the letting go exercise from yesterday with this new situation, before you focus on forgiving.
Much like letting go, forgiveness only works if you are willing to leave those emotions behind you. By constantly thinking about how you were wronged by this person, you are condemning yourself, and keeping your energy low. When your energy is low, it is hard to connect with your Higher Self, it is difficult to manifest what you want to create in your life, and it can be hard for you to truly love yourself, just because you are constantly dragging yourself down.
Forgiveness is not for the other person. Forgiveness is for you. Forgiving allows you to free yourself from that time in your life, or that state of mind. It allows you to find peace within, so that you can be the best version of yourself, and it gives you the opportunity to welcome new into your life.
For this challenge, I recommend you write a letter to the person who hurt you. You do not need to send this letter to them, because the purpose of this letter is for your healing process. So, write to them and say everything you have always wanted to say to them, regarding the way they treated you, and how it made you feel. Write about how their actions have impacted your life, and the way you view yourself. Make sure you let all your emotions and thoughts out, and be sure to be as open and honest as possible.
When you have finished, you may burn the letter, as you did with yesterday’s writing. Or you may lock it up and save it away. Whichever feels best to you. Ask your angels and guides to help you release these old emotions and truly forgive. I suggest also spending some time in meditation, or at least practicing positive visualization.
Remember how in past challenges I had you envision light surrounding you or certain parts of you? I suggest you imagine this light filling you up, and taking the place of the emotions you are now releasing. This will help you to feel more comfortable, and at peace.
