Yes, forgiveness is freedom. Once we can forgive others, we can live more freely and vibrantly in our lives. Letting go is an act of self-love, opening us up to greater love and abundance in our lives.
When you forgive someone, the best reason is to do it for yourself.
Holding on to resentments create stuck energy in the body and in turn, “dis-ease” manifests. Saint Augustine is credited with saying, “Resentment is like drinking poison and waiting for the other person to die.” It doesn’t work! And forgiving can be difficult. That’s okay! It’s worth it.
Forgiveness creates more abundance in your life.
When we release bitterness, it opens up more space energetically for good things to enter our life. The Law of Attraction is a real thing. If we stay in the place of anger and frustration, we attract more of that. I know, it’s hard to work on keeping our vibration up all of the time. We’re human, so give yourself a break when you are not. But, when you remember. When you have the energy. When you have the motivation. When you are just tired of feeling bad, it’s time to take the first step to forgiveness.
Opening up to forgiveness leads to a more joyful experience in life.
Releasing animosity allows the joy in. And who doesn’t want to experience more joy? When we turn away from what hasn’t worked in our lives, we can turn towards a new way and new experiences. The sun seems brighter. The possibilities appear less limited.
It can be done!
If you are having trouble forgiving yourself or someone else, give yourself a break. It’s not easy, but it can be done. Through prayer and other contemplative practices, you can let go little by little or in one fell swoop. It is up to you and for Spirit to show you the way. Yes, forgiveness is freedom. Doesn’t being free sound so nice?
It’s easier with some assistance.
