Self, I Forgive You…

September 24, 2013

Have you ever felt like you let yourself down? Perhaps you made a workplace decision just to have steady income in the home, but the opportunity cost (to not pursue your dreams) was far greater than the pay you received. Or maybe you always show up for others in their struggles, but when it’s time to stand for you, you can’t seem to find the energy to fight for self. 

Have you ever let yourself down? I certainly have. Always remember that we are spirit beings who interact with others mostly in physical form. When we allow external things to conform us, our minds, our habits, and such, we step outside of ourselves and tend to do things that do not align with our self image.  The result is usually a negative feeling towards the self: Shame. Pity. Guilt. Humility. Low Self-Esteem.

The good news is there’s hope. You see, all of these resulting feelings – usually indicators that we’ve let ourselves down – are also the same feelings that keep us humble. They are the matter that allow us to relate to others. And, they are more common than we allow ourselves to believe. Everyone experiences these feelings!

I’ve come to learn that while feelings are not facts, they are good indicators of how our life is shaping up to our self measurements.  Take note of how you feel, and be intentional about aligning your feelings with your desires. This takes time and patience.  

1-2-3 Self Forgiveness Plan

One: The first step is to forgive yourself. Forgive your past mistakes. Forgive your thwarted intentions (those things you wanted to say or do, but settled for the less effective thought/act).  Forgive your motives driven by ego that allowed you to hurt others. Forgive your past… ALL of it! 

Now, once you’ve decided to move forward by forgiving yourself, write out exactly what you are forgiven for – and let it go!

Two: Next, choose to renew your mind about who you are. Your circumstances don’t define you. Your belief does. What are you willing to belief about yourself and your life purpose?  If you still feel down while in this thought, you still have some forgiving to do!

Three: Lastly, follow up with gratitude…towards your salvation, your capabilities, your creativity, love and support. Then, ask your spiritual guide to lead you into your purpose. I can attest that forgiveness and gratitude are the perfect formula for peace of mind! 

Today, forgive yourself. No matter what you’ve said, done, or neglected to say and/or do, know that it’s never too late to be YOU. Your highest self. All you have to do is accept you as you are, and the rest of the world will follow your leadership. 

Self, I forgive you! 

One Love,
