Here is a little guidance to freeing the heart by asking forgiveness of others, extending forgiveness to those who have hurt us, and forgiving ourselves. To be able to stay open and generous enough to challenge ourselves with practicing this difficult heart exercise, we shall begin with a short loving kindness meditation.
I had a lot of fun doing recording these 3 forgiveness meditations, intentionally bringing some light hearted humor to an otherwise heavy topic. I apologize if it seems a bit over the line. My intention was to bring a bit of a smile to the practice in order for the heart to open a bit more. 🙂
Excerpt from the audio: Practice saying this statement and check in with yourself to see if it’s true, or can become true, if you practiced: “Perhaps I did the best I could, given the circumstances I was in and given the tools and resources that were available to me at that time. Looking at it that way, I understand –even though I don’t agree with how I acted. I forgive myself for forgetting who I truly am.
I am letting that person and that time go. I forgive myself. I am now dedicated to learning how to stay in touch with my true nature as a loving person.”
