What I’ve found with myself and working with my clients all over the world is that stepping into the Forgiveness process calls for you to get down and dirty! Yep! There’s just no avoiding it. You have to be willing to dive into the dirt to come out with a clean start.
And it may surprise you to learn that it’s your dirt that calls to out to you so you can make it clean.
ENERGY IS STUCK AND IT’S CAUSING THIS
You see, energy that has gotten stuck on you from less than pleasant experiences is dense and creates a blemish. It’s like a dirty stain on your favorite top.
There are all kinds of stain removers out there but they don’t work if you don’t use one. They also don’t work if you cover up your spot, shielding it from the stain remover.
Unfortunately, that’s exactly what we do to ourselves over and over again when we try to convince ourselves there’ s no stain there or that all the stain is on the other person involved.
We put up our own shields that prevents our stain from receiving the remover it needs but it also prevents that stain from continuing to move itself forward.
So what am I really talking about here?
I’m talking about the dark, dense energy (stain) that gets stuck and prevents you from moving forward and receiving the love that you yearn for. Ouch! So, it’s really important for you to know that you have an issue that is stuck and where to go from there.
In other words, the Forgiveness that is being called for needs to happen for you. Only then can it be for-giving.
WAYS TO KNOW IF ENERGY IS STUCK
How can you tell if there is energy that is stuck and needs to be let go of? Here’s one of the ways to know what to start looking for:
Do you find yourself perseverating?
per·sev·er·ate pərˈsevəˌrāt/ verb PSYCHOLOGY gerund or present participle: perseverating
- Repeat or prolong an action, thought, or utterance after the stimulus that prompted it has ceased.
What I mean is, do you find yourself rehashing the same thing over and over in your mind over someone or something; what they did to you or how they hurt you?
Do you find yourself with continual internal dialog that is determined to justify over and over why you can never speak with them again or what you would do to them if given a chance?
Do you have a hate/love connection that has you going around and around in circles with them where one minute you want to ring their neck and the next really wish they would just scoop you up in their arms and tell you how lovable you are?
If so, it is because you have taken on a belief about yourself that is not in alignment with your truth and you haven’t let it go. By still holding on it is you who is hurting you.
Think about that for a minute. It is You who is hurting YOU.
SEE THINGS DIFFERENTLY THROUGH FORGIVENESS
This is what forgiveness can do for you. It starts with you being willing to see things differently. The beauty is, if you are willing to do that, everything will change for you.
That’s the incredible gift that Forgiveness brings.
Recently I challenged people to put their hearts out there in sharing their feelings about Forgiveness in a Quote contest I ran on Facebook. As a result, a very beautiful book about Forgiveness came together.
Forgive to Live: Making Peace to Live in Peace. You can feel their hearts through these contributors writings and the level of healing that has taken place because they have gifted themselves Forgiveness.
You can feel their strength they’ve shared in their own words. You can feel moved and encouraged by each and every quote. And it’s because they let themselves see something differently and let Forgiveness heal their hearts. And do you know what they got from that as well? Peace.
It was a beautiful thing to see and I encourage you all to pick up a copy of this book, read it, get inspired, sit down and perhaps write your own quotes to help you start to heal your heart too.
The book is available here.
Also, I encourage you to listen in to my latest podcast episode where I talk about 3 more ways that you know you have energy that needs to be forgiven.
This is really important to know. Why? Because both your happiness and your health depends on it.
In my next blog, I’ll be talking about the energy behind positive words that inspire you and why they also have a positive effect on your body, mind and of course, your Spirit!
Until then, try to stay open and strive to see things differently so that things can start to show up differently in your life too!
