“There is no mistaking love. You feel it in your heart. It is the common fiber of life, the flame that heals our soul, energizes our spirit and supplies passion to our lives. It is our connection to God and to each other.”
– Elizabeth Kubler-Ross
I have been extremely fortunate to have learned a particular set of transformative tools to resolve my complaints and wounded past. They continue to serve me well whenever my attachment to being ‘victim’ arises. They effectively return me to being empowered, generative and willing to ask for and grant forgiveness.
Another effective tool is the death of a loved one. Priorities can become instantly clear. At least for me they did when a mutual friend of mine and my former boyfriend’s died. At the funeral, I forgave him for his infidelity that had broken us apart. I felt immediately released from the anger I had been carrying for more than 2 years. It was clear that life was too short to hold a grudge.
Authentic forgiveness is a powerful accelerator for our transformative growth and soul’s freedom. It clears the sludge of victimhood that hold us stagnant. It allows us to clear the debris that blocks our intuitive voice and makes way for our truest and fullest expression of our heart.
What tools have you used in your life to authentically forgive? What have been the results? Would love to hear from you.
