I try to send out an Illuminara.com newsletter once a week. This past week, the topic was about forgiveness and what I realized I must do to truly feel the feeling of forgiveness in my mind/body/spirit. And many, many people who subscribe have responded. Alice, for one, said:
“I, too, learned that forgiveness is what we must practice if we are to grow as spiritual beings.
There was a time in my life when the thought of forgiving a personal hurt was something I couldn’t choose to do. Instead, I asked God to bless the lives of the persons who I felt had hurt me. I didn’t really care if the persons were blessed. I couldn’t articulate what a blessing for them would be. I just prayed every day that God would bless them. Over time I found that the only thought I had about the persons was the daily blessing request, and in only a few months, I knew I was ready to forgive and let go of my pain. I prayed one last blessing request, forgave the past hurt, and thanked God for the lesson I had learned.”
Thank you, Alice!
