In my experiences with
discovering life purpose it seems inevitable, in all cases, to come to grips
with our past. We build up negative issues in our past and need to clear
the clutter out in order to grow. I call this clearing process
"Forgiveness". In the Bible, Jesus said, "forgive
not seven times, but seventy-times seven." Why? Because
forgiveness is our ability to remove negative thoughts and neutralize them so
our energy may be spent on doing what we came here for.
cannot move forward in our future if past issues cloud our thinking.
can think of our life as a room. The more past issues or negative
thoughts, the more furniture, dust, cobwebs, clutter, and other pests (spiders,
mice, etc.) clog up our thinking and our ability to manifest.
we forgive, it is as if we took a broom, vacuum cleaner and a dumpster and got
rid of the old clutter that blocks us from creating the life (room) we really
do we forgive others? Each person may have their own method.
personal choice is through prayer and meditation. Through visualizing the
issue or past event which clutters our thinking we may then send love and prayer
to that situation and let them go... just let them go and send them on their way
takes some practice. There is another prayer which I've attached in the
tools under "The Forgiveness Prayer" which I found very helpful.
This prayer is a prayer you can use repeatedly for cleansing in this
only must we forgive others, but forgiveness in our own mind regarding our
impression of others and how they might judge US is also important. I
believe forgiving our own self is equally important in the forgiveness
process. Marcus Porcious Cato said "I can pardon everyone's mistakes
but my own." This is too true for most of us. Yet, we must release
our mistakes (dust, garbage in our spiritual self), too, in order to move forward
person I consider an expert in the field of forgiveness and release is Belinda
Farrell. This month, AspireNow features Belinda Farrell, a certified
hypnotherapist who has conquered
fear through fire-walks and changed her career from being a movie actress to
helping people discover their higher self again. Belinda discusses her
unique process around Forgiveness
in "Why we must forgive and how we can do it."
highly recommend Belinda Farrell and you may find her work to be a source of
release and forgiveness in your own journey.
forgiving others and forgiving our own self we can truly be free and clear to
build the life we want. It is sometimes said "to err is human;
to forgive, unusual." We can take the "unusual" path and
become truly unusual people. Unusual people discover their purpose and
live it each day.
