Start With Forgiveness

Forgiveness of anything that you may have to grow through and forgiveness of anyone who may have judged you or even harmed you. And while creating that list, don’t add yourself to it as well. Very often the toughest deal is to be forgive our own selves.

The journey from self-neglect to selflove must definitely move through an essential step – forgiveness. Forgiveness of people, incidents, situations, experiences. Anyone who may have ever hurt you – let go.

How to forgive yourself?

Guilt is a slow-poison. It kills over time and destroys your trust towards your own self and further erodes self-confidence. If there is anything in your life for which you feel guilty – it is time to let it go. And then start-over. Start with selflove. Selflove is self-acceptance.

Acceptance is about embracing the whole and not parts. And if we have the courage to look at ourselves honestly, there would be many occasions when we have not been particularly proud of ourselves. Some things we said, or did which may have caused hurt or harm. These things belong to the past. Unless we absolutely uproot and release these nagging pains – there is no way that selflove and growth can flourish.

How to forgive others?

Make a list of people you hold responsible and don’t feel easy to forgive. Make a list of occasions when you have really not been at your best, and they continue to affect you.

Now decide to release both.

The forgiveness ritual is about considering each of the occasion, try and absorb the wisdom and then let it go. We often cling too much to the past. We create a comfort around those incidents which may have affected us deeply. We create an identity around these experiences while in reality, time may have moved on.

This is the best way to achieve peace and grow. Make it a daily practice, a night ritual. This is the greatest act of selflove you would practice in life.

Only after forgiveness, down love flow.

There are various healing techniques like Hoponopono practice which helps to release tough emotions. To the person or situation you release, say – I thank you, I love you, I forgive you and I am sorry. It is easy to understand this ritual – because everyone we meet or every incident that occurs has something to teach, we express gratitude. Then we extend unconditional love to that person. Because the universe doesn’t choose and bestows freely – by giving unconditional love, we mimic the intelligence of the universe. Once you have already given unconditional love, forgiveness is easy and finally apologise to take ownership of any hurt you may too have caused.
