”Forgiveness, Free Yourself Now” – Exercise

Today on the Full Moon, I propose an exercise of release through forgiveness that can bring marked positive changes in your lives.

Anyone can feel more at peace and more energized through the process of forgiveness. This process reminds me of throwing off weights when riding in a hot air balloon so you can go higher up. Old anger, fear, and resentment are dead weights that slow us and drain our vitality. Perhaps you have some weight you can throw over the side of your hot air balloon right now. When you forgive the world including yourself – you become lighter and much less fearful.

  • Know the benefits of forgiveness —Forgiveness is different from saying, “I lose,” or “I was wrong, and you were right.” It is different from letting someone off the hook for a perceived wrong deed. Forgiveness is simply a way of freeing your spirit and becoming an unlimited being. Peacefulness and increased energy are the prizes, and forgiveness is the price. To me, it’s a bargain.
  • Take a forgiveness inventory – Write the name of every person, living or deceased, who has ever irritated you. Most people find they have a threeor four-page list and are able suddenly to remember names of people they hadn’t thought about in years. Some people put down names of pets who irritated them, and almost everyone writes their own name somewhere on the list.
  • Release and forgive – In a solitary room where no interruptions are possible, go down the list one name at a time. Hold the image of each person in your mind and tell him or her, “I forgive you and I release you. I hold no unforgiveness back. My forgiveness for you is total. I am free and you are free.” This process may take 30 minutes or longer. However, it’s important to stick with it until the entire list is complete.
  • Do nightly releasements – Every evening before retiring, do a mental review of the day. Is there anyone you need to forgive? Just as you probably wash your face every night, it’s also important to cleanse your consciousness nightly so resentment won’t accumulate.
