“We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies.” Martin Luther King Jr.
The intention statement of this episode is – I HAVE TODAY to start fresh and new.
This week on I HAVE TODAY with Diane Forster, we’re talking about the power of forgiveness. I can’t think of a single person I know who hasn’t experienced pain and also caused pain for someone else. Unforgiveness is a weight that can keep us stuck in the past, and hold us back from new relationships and all of the beauty that life has to offer. In my own journey of transformation, I had to begin with self-forgiveness. Don’t waste another minute being stuck in the cycle of pain, hurt, and unforgiveness. Listen in to the episode to learn more about the freedom that belongs to you, and the love that is waiting.
In this episode, I give three statements for you to begin speaking to yourself. Start using these phrases, and watch how your heart begins opening to the power of forgiveness.
Love it! – I am forgiving.
Thank it! – I am grateful for my power to forgive.
Bring it! – I know how freeing it is to forgive.
“Forgiveness doesn’t make you weak. It makes you strong, and it makes you empowered.”
Three Steps to Easily Forgive Anyone of Anything
- Remember the 3 levels of forgiveness.
- Practice the “I forgive you” chant.
- Stop thinking about and talking about it.
“The difference between someone who can’t let go of their pain, and someone who has moved on, is the thoughts and words associated with the experience… we can’t change the events that occur in our lives, but we can change the way we view them. Thereby changing the emotions we have attached to them.”
Each week, we end our episode with a mantra meditation. This is a fun, transformative way for you to apply the concepts from discussed to your life right now. Start changing the questions you ask yourself. Start shifting your mindset. Start seeing the power of forgiveness set you free to love more deeply, and live your life to the fullest!
