Abstract: In this article Julie Geigle offers 3 tips on how to forgive and forget so you can move on with love in your heart and joy in your life.
Has someone wronged or hurt you? Been insensitive or inappropriate?
If that weren't bad enough, then the mental mind keeps replaying the story over and over in your head until the body oftentimes becomes physically ill.
How can a person break this cycle of pain?
The #1 rule to forgiveness is to understand: It is never about the story, it is always about how the story makes you feel. Here are 3 tips on how to forgive and forget so you can move on with love in your heart and joy in your life.
1.Be vigilant. When the mind keeps wanting to drag you back into the story be prepared with a mantra or prayer to keep you grounded in your power.
It's easy to lose oneself in the story of pain, but we all have a story it is part of being human. Utilize all of your tools and resources to get out of that hole. Youtube has some great free videos to help shift our energy. Many spiritual teachers offer free meditations and classes to expand our thinking. There are great movies out there to uplift and inspire us.
The mind's automatic response to pain is to keep repeating it over and over in our head trying to make sense of it and rationalize who did what and why. While there is some value in processing the experience so it doesn't happen again, the mind has a tendency to hang on much longer than necessary and often to the detriment of our health.
That's why being on guard like a soldier with positive affirmations can mean the difference between a miracle and more of the same.
2. Be a victor not a victim. Victor's rise up in love. Victim's stay stuck in pain. Choices allow freedom in our lives. Choose again.
Sometimes being a victim gets us a lot of attention, even if it is negative attention. Be careful to only tell your story one time. If you find yourself repeating the story again and again to anyone who will listen then you can be assured you are receiving a payoff for staying stuck in victim mode.
But the good news is that you can choose again at any point in time. Tell that story (one time only), feel the pain and then brush yourself off and keep moving.
3. Disconnect. Every time the story pops up imagine anyone connected to the story filling up with white light and exploding out of your energy field.
When we are in the pain of a story the energy of the people involved is actually in our energy field which is part of why we obsess over it in our head and can't seem to get it out.
By using this simple imagery tool it will help cleanse your auric field of any negative energy and any unhealthy cords associated with the story so that you can truly stand in your power once and for all.
When I don't forgive, I punish myself with what happened again & again & again in my head. It is the thought that keeps me imprisoned in pain. It is the thought that keeps the pain alive. And with the thought of my pain, I spend my energy hating the other person.
When I forgive, the thought of what happened releases me & no longer has any power over me...I am truly free.
When I forgive, I can go back to loving me because there is no longer any thoughts about other people hurting me.
When the thought is gone the pain dissolves.
Forgiveness really isn't about the other person - it's about me.
