The Forgiving State of Mind is a Magnetic Power for Attracting Good.
- Catherine Ponder
Traditional forgiveness takes many years to achieve and cannot be forced. Years of therapy will help of course, but so long as there is any residual regret – not to mention pain – true forgiveness will remain elusive no matter how much compassion we bring to the situation and no matter how much we try to “just let it go” and especially if we were deeply hurt or damaged. This is largely due to the belief that something ‘bad happened to us’.
Research tells us that suppressed and repressed emotions held in the body are the cause of many modern day diseases and keep us from living the life we desire. Most people end up totally reliant upon chemical medicine for their healing. The time has come to ask ourselves the question—how can we let go of the victim archetype as the model for how we are living our lives?
True Forgiveness is a simple and easy tool used to shift the energy of victim archetype and traditional forgiveness by being ‘willing’ to open up to the possibilities that everything happens for a reason, and that there are no mistakes. It is not so much something that we do; rather it is a spiritual viewpoint that we are ‘willing’ to accept. It is experienced as a shift in consciousness, or a movement of energy both within ourselves and throughout the situation itself, such that the elements within the situation itself shift and change. Such changes begin to look like miracles.
