“Your goal is to step back into love and trust;
That place you were in before your heart was broken“
It is necessary for us to forgive when we have been hurt. To forgive is not to forget, but to heal our pain and to open our hearts once again. This way we are able to trust and embrace life once again. In order to heal ourselves, the first step is to stop the brain chatter. The mind is describing and analyzing the situation from a personal perspective, so we need to step out of time and space, and take a good look at the spiritual reality. We can experience the silenced Divine soul within everyone and realize how disconnected some people are from themselves. When we realize this, blame is replaced with compassion, hurt is replaced with forgiveness and fear is replaced by love.
It is only natural to have doubt and let there be doubt, but give it a try. We can defy our doubt and see it for what it is – fear. We have two emotions which branches out into a kaleidoscope of feelings – those two emotions are fear and love. It may seem impossible to move from fear back to love, but it is not.
The truth is that the person who hurt you did not know better at the time, and even if you are not aware of the circumstances that have caused the person to become what they have become, remember that there is a reason for everything. Many people carry dark secrets through life, and others may be unaware of the disturbance of either repressed memories or earlier reincarnations. This does not in any way give them a green card to walk recklessly through life, and it does not mean that it is your task to forgive and forget or to help that person, but it shines a light on the fact that it was not your fault. You did not trigger anything within that person, and there is no reason for you to feel guilty or ashamed, but it is now in your power to heal your heart.
Most of us have felt the weight of time, but that weight does not affect Spirit. The following exercise/meditation will allow you to see through the layers of baggage that have clouded the other person’s ability to think, feel and act in a loving way, and reach that place within us all which still is, and always will be, pure, innocent and loving.
Lie down comfortably and close your eyes. Let your body control your breathing and give yourself a few minutes to relax. Now see the person who has hurt you. Focus on the energy of the person. Remember what it feels like to stand next to them. See them talk and listen to their voice, see them move, look into their eyes and feel the presence of that person in your body.
Now remove their physical body and put them inside of the body that they had when they were babies. You now have a fully grown adult inside of a baby´s body. See how they move, see how they play, laugh and make sounds. See the world with their curious eyes and feel their energy. Then look into their eyes – there you will find that purity which represents our true selves. Feel their beauty in your heart.
While looking into his or her eyes, put your hand on your heart and tell them:
“I am sorry for what happened to you, and I forgive you for the pain you have caused me.”
Let your heart let go of the pain while you breathe deeply into further relaxation and remind yourself that you are free to love yourself and your life again. Recommended free downloadable prayer to open your heart - Click here
