Step 6 - Forgive myself and others
I understand that our past experiences are what made us who we are today, and that it can be very difficult to let go without a feeling of losing our foundation. The fact of the matter is, though, that holding on to bad stuff is holding us back, limiting us, stinting our growth. There are many excellent visualisation exercises out there to practice forgiving others as well as ourselves for making mistakes and not being perfect. I enjoy Louise Hay's affirmations and "letting it flow down the river" meditation. Do you have any favourites?
I invite you this week to think about who has done you wrong in the past and whom you have crossed, and how you could work on accepting what happened, making the most of it, and finding inner peace about it.
Til next time!
