#WWNReflection #Return2Wholeness #UNLockingYourHeArtofLeadership: How will your life be different if you DECIDED to let go of all that ‘STUFF’ you’ve been holding on to for weeks, months, years, decades…? What if you decided to sincerely OWN up and be responsible for your own part in creating the situation?
Forgiveness is a decision. Do not worry about the HOWs or the POSSIBILITY of ever forgetting the hurt, pain, disappointment, anger, shame, sadness…Your part is simply to CHOOSE to decide to forgive and release all that ‘stuff’, grace takes care of the rest!
Forgiveness is a sacred co-creative process and we cannot do it alone! Once you truly decide to forgive, GOD’s GRACE kicks in and finishes the journey for you. Forgiveness is a sacred process of healing, it frees our souls and spirits and allows us to S.O.A.R: i.e. See Only Amazing Reflections of ourselves in others, because when we forgive others, we forgive ourselves and also give ourselves permission to be worthy of forgiveness from God and others too! It births the twin gifts of EMPATHY and COMPASSION.
So, yes, do give yourself enough time and space to be human. Kick, scream, rant, rave, express your pain any way you choose, until that moment when you notice you’re now re-telling the story in an empowering way and all you see are the Positive Learnings from the experience and you actually feel a sense of deep Gratitude to the person(s) who caused your pain.
You realize that through that experience, you’ve learned how to create boundaries in your life and how to channel your pains positively! You understand that their purpose in your life (consciously or unconsciously), was really to make you learn, grow, progress, transform and #BeMore!
