Healing Begins With Yourself
My experience of forgiveness and healing began with myself. At the age of 16 years old I sat in my High School library dressed all in black with an anarchist shirt. I read and read that day until it filled my hearts content. My best friend across from me was asking me a question and I lost focus because my eye caught a small glimpse of a quote by Lao Tzu that read,
“The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.”
Even today, as I read it I can still feel and recall each step I took to get where I am now. The Journey isn’t over, is it? It is not my friend! Teenager me actually imagined getting prepared for a journey of 1,000 miles and feeling overwhelmed by the length. While not knowing the full meaning of the quote, I sensed it.
During teenage years pain would be my right and fear would be my left. With time I learned the following…
Forgiveness isn’t difficult
Forgiveness does not require you to write a letter, say it face to face and/or record an actual apology. You can simply breathe in and out and then say the following aloud or to yourself: “I forgive you. I hold no resistance nor expectations. I send you Divine light. May your inner being be filled with love and compassion.” The actual process of offering forgiveness is easy but the healing can, and will likely, require some time.
Give Yourself Time, Love, & Compassion
Time will heal you once forgiveness has been attained. Learning that life and time are the best of teachers is a valuable lesson. Like the wounds on your skin; time will heal you. Just as time is required in the healing process for a scrape or cut, time will also aid in your emotional healing process. The band aid for your spiritual and emotional healing might include, but not necessarily be limited to: love, time, and of course, an abundance of compassion for yourself.
