1. Go to a peaceful, serene spot that you feel most calm in. It must be quiet and free of clutter. 2. Close your eyes and get into a comfortable seated position. Take six deep breaths with a count of six seconds on the inhale through the nose and four seconds on the exhale out of the mouth. Deep breathing for a total of a minute should help you quiet the mind and calm the body. 3. Focus on who/what you need to forgive. It can be yourself or a loved one. It can be an event, argument, illness, loss, etc. Ask yourself: What is ailing you presently? What are you holding onto? What did that person say to you that you just cant seem to get over/forgive? Send them love and compassion and most of all, forgiveness. They need your love more than anyone. Surrender it and watch it pass in front of you and out into the Universe. Be free. 4. Take a big deep breath. Six count inhale through the nose and 4 count exhale out of mouth. Let it go. 5. After you have completed the Forgiveness Meditation, let your mind take you to all the wonderful things you have right now in your life. Speak softly to yourself and reflect on the abundance you have in your life at this present moment. Make a mental list of all the things and people you are grateful for. 6. Take a big deep breath. Six count inhale through the nose and four count exhale out of mouth. Smile. Forgiveness and Gratitude unlock the door to a happier, healthy life. When you are stuck in resentment, depression and despair, you lose sight of the wonderful things around you and are not willing to listen, to change, to grow, to heal. Keep practicing this simple meditation. Give yourself just five minutes of self-love a day. Once you are free of resentment, you can unlock the power of gratitude. The willingness to listen to yourself and others becomes easier. Now, your best self can shine forward and happiness arrives....http://www.elephantjournal.com/

Love this, and I'm copying it to Notepad to remember and read during my darkest days - and my lightest.
Thanks Larry.
