Forgiveness is power. Forgiveness can transform your life. Being willing to forgive is not easy. There are so many people who have suffered so many tragic, horrible and awful things. Many at the hand of another. Some think if they forgive it’s like saying that the thing that happened is okay. I believe forgiveness is letting go of the pain so that it will stop hurting you mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Holding onto something that you could let go of is like leaving one rotting orange in a bowl of fresh oranges. This rot spreads and quickly effects the perfectly good fruit. When you hold onto past hurts, you typically have health conditions. Conditions you might believe are caused by genetics or allergies or an accident etc. What I see in my office is that so many struggle with dis-ease until they can forgive.

From my perspective, there are two types of forgiveness. Conscious mind and subconscious mind forgiveness. Many people come into my office and tell me they have already forgiven but when we test the subconscious mind, the subconscious disagrees. It’s important to consciously forgive but it’s even more important to subconsciously forgive. The subconscious is 1 million times more powerful than the conscious mind and really controls our health and well being. If the subconscious is “happy” then we are too. The subconscious is timeless so even if something happened 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70 etc. plus years ago, it’s the same in the subconscious mind today as it was then. Think about the worst thing that ever happened to you. If your subconscious is experiencing that event like it was happening today, what do you think that thought is causing to happen in your body?

Ready for some pain relief, piece, joy, acceptance and happiness? Ask yourself, who do you need to forgive? Maybe it’s you. Many times we are the hardest on ourselves. We criticize our “worst” attribute with the best attributes of others. Why do we do this to ourselves? Let’s get rid of the negative self talk and lack of forgiveness that is rampant in our world because it is rampant in our heads. How do we turn it around? Start with asking yourself, how would you rather feel? About you, about others, about events and situations. What would it be like if you really felt the way you’d like to feel? Imagine your life like you want it to be. Hold onto that thought. Make that your new reality and release the shackles that may have you bound. Are you ready to Let Go?
