We have spoken about recognizing our own self-limiting thoughts and replacing them with positive and affirmative ones. We have also discussed how important it is to be grateful and to recognize what is wonderful about our lives instead of focusing on our grievances and problems. Everything that we experience may be perceived as a miracle if we choose to see it that way.
One of the tools I use daily to assist me in finding gratitude and happiness is the "Forgiveness Process".
Dr. Jose Stevens who developed the "Michael System" taught it to me many years ago.
He suggested that if I were holding grudges or carrying anger or resentment towards someone else, that It would hinder my growth and impede my happiness.
If you have been hurt and feel angry, sad or resentful try to picture an image of that person before you.
With your eyes closed and that person in your mind's eye, say the following words.
I (your name here) forgive you, (their name here), for everything you have ever done that has hurt me, in this lifetime and in any other, and I set you free.
Then you say:
I (your name here) ask you, (their name here), to forgive me for anything that I have ever done that has hurt you, in this lifetime or any other, and I ask that you set me free.
I thank you God/Spirit for this chance to forgive and to be forgiven and I am set free.
Do this whenever you think of it, but at least 3 times a day for 3 days. Watch what happens to your feelings about the person who has hurt you and watch how they react differently to you. Most importantly, watch your happiness level rise.
