Forgiveness is an act that we do out of love for ourselves.
Forgiveness is something that you have either walked bravely towards or run a mile from at some stage in your life.
As I professed in a chapter titled ‘Forgiveness’ in my up and coming book ‘Goddess Walking”, I have a mixed bag of feelings when it comes to forgiveness and forgiving, especially when it comes to the unforgivable. Yes, that’s right, some things are unforgivable.
Which brings me to a six hour flight north-west of my home and a two-hour drive into the hinterlands of Bali, and a new-found tool for my survival kit.
It was the holy waters of Tirta Empul Tampaksiring-Gianyar Bali that brought me to the profound realisation that acceptance is a powerful self-agreement tool for releasing, letting go and finding deep and blissful inner peace.
You don’t have to go to the holy waters of Bali to allow yourself to feel acceptance, I will guide you now with some easy steps.
It doesn’t mean what has happened is right or wrong.
It doesn’t mean that you are giving in or giving up.
It doesn’t mean that you are allowing them to win, or that they have got away with it.
It simply means that you are letting it go and accepting that what has happened has happened and nothing can change that.
It means that you are going to put that heavy load down and stop carrying it around like a gaping wound.
It means that you will feel light and free and at peace with your past.
You can’t change that past.
You can’t change what people have done to you.
You change your future by accepting that what has been done is gone and by actively choosing your daily attitudes, your directions in life and your own path.
For more insight on acceptance you may like to have a one on one private session with me. Please go to my contact page to inquire.
Love and many blessings Annie
