FORGIVING & MOVING ON

November 2, 2012

Received the following comment in an email today:  “My efforts to hold accountable the people who have so abused my life was sabotaged, and the destruction has been devastating to me.” This person seems to be unable (or perhaps unwilling) to put the sins against him/her in the past and move on.

The first step in releasing the past and moving on is to forgive. Forgiving does NOT mean approving of or accepting the crimes/acts. It benefits our own selves rather than the perpetrators. It is for us that we forgive. People have written many books and articles and chapters in books about the importance of this for one’s wellbeing—spiritual, emotional, and mental.

Another suggestion is to pray for the perpetrators. Now that's a biggie!  When one first begins praying for a perpetrator, one might not have a 100% willingness to forgive; however, when one continues to pray, one gradually begins to sense the shifts and changes within and becomes more willing to forgive. Yes, it is for our own selves that we pray for those who have "sinned" against us. It clears negativity from us related to the “sins against us” and takes a load off.

More than one holy book mentions praying for those who have sinned against us, including at least two of The New Testament gospels. In Matthew 5:44 of The New Testament of the American King James Version we find:  “But I say to you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which spitefully use you, and persecute you.”

Here is a prayer that I use for people I wish well  (including people who have undergone the Divine Reconnective Healing Process during the past year) AND for people I find I have any negativity  toward:

“I Am [your name]. I Am That I Am. In the name of Christ and under the law of grace, I [your name] decree I Am calling forth, asking for, commanding, and giving thanks for showers of blessings and many wonderful opportunities for [recipient’s name OR your own name]—now.”

It is very healing for one’s own self to pray in this fashion for those for whom one doesn’t have loving feelings toward.  We suggest making a list and setting aside a time daily to pray for such people, crossing them off the list only when one can actually feel a wee bit of love for them. And, of course, it is wonderful to pray for one’s own self, as well!
