What Is Forgiveness?

Why forgive? How can we move from anger and hatred to compassion, clarity and awareness?

I made this video to share with you how I came to understand what forgiveness is.

Through a practice of powerful expressive meditation techniques I  healed my heart and became more aware of my choices. I could put my energy into anger and resentment, OR focus on loving myself, and enjoying my life. How I came to choose the latter is explained in the video.

If  this message resonates with you, please share on your social media networks. The world needs more forgiveness.

TY! Some times you just can't forgive . Again like i just posted in another article. It takes 2..... I'm one that always give the benefit of the doubt - too much I realized.

I agree with heather g - I can forgive my mother, I can forgive others who have hurt me in some way, I can even forgive myself now. I am having an extrordinarily difficult time forgiving the poachers who slaughter animals to extinction. I don't know if I can ever forgive the illegal waste dumpers - pollutng, land, water, and even the oceans. Of course, there are the abusers, of women, children, men, and animals - not sure if I will be able to forgive them. I won't even bring up corrupt politicians or the mega-corporations who act like they are God. So many others, not enought time in my life to even consider forgiving any of them..

you can`t free yourself, if you are not able to forgive yourself.

Dear Ursula, I wonder what hurt can stay that long?

I believe forgiveness requires letting go of the anger and fear to make room inside for better things. Even when not received as offered it's good for your soul. Freedom is a wonderful thing.
