New Affirmations to Forgive Yourself for Past Mistakes… 2-minute audio.
Can you forgive yourself for past mistakes? Even when the mistakes are big ones?
Or the small ones that you’re carrying like a thorn in your sock?
Self-forgiveness is a very personal decision and it may take some time. However, when we’ve said or done things we regret, we carry it like a ball and chain, and we want to be free of this added load don’t we?
I know I do.
When we forgive ourselves for not being perfect, for being flawed, for being weak, for making mistakes, we heal the heart and open ourselves to more love.
Listen to the two-minute audio each day to help you forgive yourself for whatever you’ve said or done that you feel bad about. Or, what you haven’t said or done…
Furthermore, forgiveness in general is part of the healing process for both your body and mind.
Carolyn Myss and Forgiveness.
Many years ago, when my husband was facing a health crisis, we found Carolyn Myss and her work on forgiveness and healing is ground-breaking. I highly recommend checking her out if you or someone you love is dealing with a health issue.
“Caroline Myss is a five-time New York Times bestselling author and internationally renowned speaker in the fields of human consciousness, spirituality and mysticism, health, energy medicine, and the science of medical intuition.”
Carolyn Myss tells us, “Forgiveness is a mystical, not a logical, command. It makes no sense to the reasoning mind, because the reasoning mind is incapable of forgiveness. Genuine forgiveness is a self-initiated mystical act that requires the assistance of grace to release you from the compulsive and often self-righteous chatter of the ego, which continually enforces a position of entitled anger or hurt.”
How to forgive yourself for past mistakes: Forgiveness Prayer.
In addition, here’s a forgivenness prayer from Lisa Barnett to help you:
Divine, Spirit, Source, please move me into a state of forgiveness towards anyone or anything that has hurt me, consciously or unconsciously, from the beginning of time to this present moment. I now forgive them and I release the energy of the past.
Divine, Spirit, Source, please move me into a state of forgiveness towards myself for any hurt that I have caused others, consciously or unconsciously, from the beginning of time to this present moment. I now forgive myself and I release the energy of the past.
Divine, Spirit, Source, please move me into a state of forgiveness towards myself for any hurt that I have caused myself, consciously or unconsciously, from the beginning of time to this present moment. I now forgive myself and release the energy of the past.
I invoke the Grace and power of Forgiveness to transform my body, mind, and heart as I return to a state of Divine Innocence. And so it is.
Forgive yourself to help YOU, not them.
Marianne Williamson is quoted as saying, “Unforgiveness is like drinking poison yourself and waiting for the other person to die.”
When I first heard this quote I felt better. For me, having to forgive someone who has done something unspeakable, and undeniably despicable… well, how do we possibly do that, I wondered.
However, in the spirit of self-love and self-healing, I felt it would be self-loving to me to work on forgiveness, in my own divine time and order. As I began to see my anger as a poison that I was holding, and with I know to be true about carrying heavy, painful energy, my perspective on forgiveness shifted.
None-the-less, the forgiveness of yourself or others is so deeply personal, that only you can decide to forgive yourself for past mistakes… or whether you want to forgive others.
Give yourself plenty of grace in this process.
