“Forgiveness really means to give up any feeling, any resentment or hate against the self or against another, or against life.”

One technique/affirmation I learned many years ago follows.

I bless, release and forgive (name of another) with the Unconditional Love and Forgiveness of God and I bless, release and forgive myself with the Unconditional Love and Forgiveness of God so that I can move forward into my greater good.

   There will be 2 new posts coming soon. 

The first is about For-Giveness which will offer a new perspective on the subject,  interesting and informative. 

The second concerns numbers…in recent reading of one of the great early teachers from the 1800’s, they placed great  emphasis on numbers and their meanings drawing from ancient times to the present.  As I’ve had inquiries about this subject there will be information by a dear friend who has been studying numbers, numerology, and has been a numerologist for many years.

Powerful Thoughts, Powerful Words-Part 1 of 2

   The basis of positive and effective thinking concerns our ability to understand the active power within us, although it may appear to be latent, of our feeling nature, deeply held beliefs, thoughts and words, which create our life experiences. 

In an ancient text, The Kybalion, we read, “as above, so below, as below, so above.”   We may also state, As Within, So Without.  In Isaiah, I paraphrase, “So shall my word go forth to accomplish that for which I have sent and shall not return unto me void.”   In the New Testament we read, “It is done unto us as we believe.”  The spiritual aspect has always been addressed by those who have taught and wrote on the subject matter of positive thinking. We have direct information about how powerful we are to bring forth the life we choose.  From ancient texts and teachings we are told that life is lived from within, out.  That our thoughts, beliefs, concepts, words have more power than we realize.  We are not created to be in bondage to lack and limitation but to realize a life of abundance, well-being.  It is time to take action and stop allowing ourselves to wallow in the well of despair and drink the bitter waters of our own creation.  We are created and worthy to be rich, prosperous, abundant, healthy, and happy, love and be loved, and all the good life has to offer. We are created to express life in a bountiful manner.    

Well, how about Karma?  We have the power and ability to change our karma. We are not stuck with karma…karma is a learning experience and just like history, if we don’t learn from it we are destined to repeat it.  So if we are constantly experiencing the same effects in our life that we are not thrilled with, time to change the cause; our thoughts and beliefs concerning the situation and to be vigilant about the words we speak and our self-talk concerning said situation(s). 

As we know, our life experiences reflect back to us our core beliefs about ourselves, life, people, events, situations and the world around us.  We call this by different names: The Law of Cause and Effect, The Law of Attraction, The Law of Reflection, Mental Equivalents, Magnetic Thought, Mirroring, etc. Call it what you want. Life will always become that which we believe it to be, no more and no less.  “Nothing escapes the Principle of Cause and Effect, and one may use the laws of the higher to overcome the laws of the lower.”—The Kybalion

If we are holding onto guilt about a situation time to forgive ourselves, those involved and the situation itself.  Holding on to guilt/anger/upset wears us down and keeps us from achieving our goals of living a fuller, healthier, positive and creative life of well-being. We are not going to forgive; we are letting the power of the Spirit of Life (God) do the forgiving. In letting go of guilt/anger/upset there is a simple and positive statement you can use. “I now bless, release and forgive myself with the Unconditional Love and Forgiveness of God and I bless, release and forgive (person or persons, places, situations) with the Unconditional Love and Forgiveness of God.”  This is a short note for your reference and will be addressed more in-depth at a later time. 

This is the end of Part 1, Part 2 follows tomorrow. Jay

On Success & Forgiveness

On success and forgiveness.  Did you know that they are intertwined and have a definite impact on our life and success.

One of the most important things I have learned over the years and since coming back from the dead is, forgiveness.

Forgiveness allows us to move forward.  When we hold resentment and upset in our hearts and minds, be it toward us or others, it becomes an impediment in all areas, including health and well-being.  Now, in discussions on this topic someone asked “What about forgive and forget?”  The consensus of the group was, one never forgets the slight which was done but now cuts the ties with what was said or done. Not necessarily easy but essential for moving forward successfully in life.  We learn from it, utilize it and move on with living our life without being controlled by anger and upset.

When people judge, jump to conclusions, without full knowledge of the why and wherefore, they are putting themselves and their reputation in jeopardy.  Some years ago a friend of mine had been through some life threatening medical experiences.  They were not the same afterwards and had a few mental dings after said experiences.  Unfortunately, people judged this person without knowing or understanding why they acted the way they did and said things that were deemed outside the norm.  As these people started rumors some of their past business practices/actions became known and they were now being judged.  Needless to say,  they and their staff members were not looked upon favorably after the dust settled and their businesses suffered. Law of Cause and Effect in action.   

My friend was extremely upset about what was being said. For a week they stayed home and would only leave the house when necessary.  What they did for the first few days was to deal with their feelings.  They realized that the only way to get through this very tough time for them was to forgive those who were spreading the rumors and get on with their life. My friend said, “I will never forget what was said, but I have to forgive them or I will never get on with living my life.”   The one statement that stuck in their mind was, judge not lest you be judged, a phrase we all are familiar with, yes?  So, rather than continue to hold any resentment or anger toward them they released all ties with the situation by forgiving all.  

In the end, my friend prospered in a new business and went on living life more successfully than before.  Holding on to resentment and anger depletes our energy and keeps us from truly moving into a greater sense of well-being and better living.  

On success and forgiveness we find that they go hand in hand and frees us from being controlled by resentment and anger to live more successfully and prosperously.

Take time today to let go of the upsets and get on with living your life.  Be successful in your forgiveness.

Forgive your way to success! Jay
