Let go of the old hurts and wounded parts of yourself. These hurts are not holding you; YOU are holding these hurts. How can you let go if you’re still holding them in your heart?
Many of our lessons in life are to forgive ourselves and others. For many, it’s not so easy to forgive. Heck, when someone injures us; mind, body, or spirit, it invites demand for justice. Right? Even thinking about what you’re going to do or say to get even is getting your adrenaline pumping. S-T-O-P it!
Cease your internal wars and make peace with yourself. This may be the most difficult but it’s the most healing. It’s going to take you some time to work through it, and that’s fine. If not, an unforgiving heart becomes an emotional cancer that often manifests itself physically. Clearing of most intense experiences, takes place in layers.
It means that you will no longer carry the pain of their actions anymore.
True forgiveness brings us permanent and positive energetic change. When we forgive all wrongdoing and intolerance, we become impartial and detached from emotions allowing us to live with compassion and wisdom. The lightness you feel uplifts and energizes you to move forward in positive ways.
I received a copy of this ancient Hawaiian healing prayer a few months ago:
I am sorry. Please forgive me. I love you. Thank you.
This simple mantra is saying that you forgive all that is held, all that you have created and you’re surrendering it.
Enjoy the rest of your week.

I am so, so, so touched. This is a beautiful post!! What a contribution to Forgiving Fridays. Thank you.
There is so much about this post that brings wisdom… the power of that one phrase …. of letting go …. and of making peace with ourselves. Funny, because I’m starting an online class this Thursday called Making Peace with Myself. We are in sync! <3
The only thing that would be super helpful is to change the ping back to the link for my most recent Forgiving Fridays post (rather than the general one for my blog). It helps me to have all the contributions in one place. Here's the link if helpful to you: https://forgivingconnects.com/2017/04/21/todays-forgiving-fridays-wow-did-i-nurture-me/
Thank you again. The quotes that you use are also magnificent, by the way. I have one more to add on letting go: "Observe yourself, identify all that is not part of you. Then be ruthless in letting those things go, simply by no longer participating in them. Release and disperse them. What is left? The Soul. You." –John-Roger
Blessings and peace to you, 🙂

Great advice and so true 🌹
Thank you Elaine.
Solid advice indeed. Forgiveness isn’t always easy, but I think the hard part is forgetting … or more specifically being able to put their actions out of your mind long enough to learn to trust again.
You don’t need to forget but trying to make peace with it is freeing.
So true, great advice. This can be difficult at times, but healing for self and others.
Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
A beautiful post and something I aspire to.
Glad you like it!
You do a great job, Brigid! You are such a precious Soul. Love, Debbie
Bless you Debbie. Your kind words always give me a boost. 😍
