We’ve all heard the saying, “I’ll forgive but I won’t forget”. Only unconditional forgiveness can set you free.
It makes no sense to only partly forgive someone. When you don’t forget, you become bitter, not better. Anger and hurt is like a burning hot piece of charcoal in your hand. Only YOU get burned!
Your Mind Is A Magnet
You must think of your mind and brain as your inbuilt computer. We are human magnets and what we think, we attract.
Your brain does not differentiate between things you love and things you dislike. It simply delivers to you what you order. When you think about someone continually, they will often ring, text or show up in your life. Many mistake this for a coincidence rather than realize they have manifested the situation through their thoughts.
Whatever you think about the most is what you will experience in life. Your life is simply your thoughts and beliefs, positive and negative reflected back to you.
You can now see why It’s vital that your thoughts be controlled. At the very least you want to ensure that you are thinking about good things! Toxic thoughts will result in toxic chemicals being released into your body. This is where the saying ‘as above, so below’ stems from.
The First To Apologize Is The Bravest
Unforgiveness is the most toxic emotion of them all. It is like a cancer in the body. It will ultimately spread and infect.
Most people have fallen out with someone or experienced a level of trauma that they attribute to another. Good examples could be siblings, parents, co-workers and employers. When you suppress your emotions, they turn septic in your body. It is important that you have closure and set those emotions free. If you have an issue with someone, you don’t necessarily have to confront them.
Instead, you need to confront yourself and deal with the emotion. You need to resolve it within yourself and then dissolve it until you have no ill-feeling towards the other person. This discharges the toxicity attached to the energy and it is no longer stored within you. Holding onto hate, anger or unforgiveness only hurts one person and it’s you!
Forgive Yourself First
As the quote above from Tiny Buddha shows, you need to forgive yourself before you can forgive others. If you continue to relive the past, you will remain a hostage and never move on.
You have to break free. Life is a journey, mistakes are only challenges, they are not fatal. Learn from them and move on and be happy that you had the experience.
10 Things To Give Up To Move Forward
There are a number of changes that you can make that will bring unconditional forgiveness into being. The cleaner and clearer your life becomes, the easier it will become to include forgiveness.
This list of 10 ways to move forward that we found on Facebook is a great place to start and living in the moment is a must.
7 Rules For Life
As you can see by the list above, forgiveness is key when it comes to living a happy and authentic life. You need to make peace with your past so it doesn’t screw up your present!
Once you can view things as experiences rather than good or bad, you are on the right path. Neutrality is key to life and also your growth. Don’t judge others and more importantly don’t judge or label yourself.
