Have you forgiven yourself or others? Are you holding on to what I call “silent resentment”? As we get older, our logical mind begins to understand that we need to forgive ourselves and/or others. We take the mature route and understand there isn’t any use in holding onto “old stuff”.
For many merely saying I forgive you isn’t enough because it isn’t the adult that’s having trouble letting go; it’s your inner child. You many find that you the adult and your inner child have conflicting beliefs that make it truly difficult to forgive and let go.
Holding on to resentment can cause your body and emotions, stress. It is healing to forgive on all levels, mind, body and spirit.
Let’s start now with these two processes.
1. Forgive 70 times 7
Get paper and pen.
Begin by focusing on the problem.
Now with sincere desire to forgive and let go of this situation, write your affirmation.
Here are some examples:
I forgive_______________. I let you go. I am free.
I am ready to forgive___________. I let you go. I am free and you are free.
You will write your forgiveness affirmation 70 times during the day, for 7 days.
It may feel weird at first, this is to be expected however press on. Do not write idle words, pour your love, and a true desire to release these emotions.
When you are done for the day and have completed your 70th affirmation sign your name.
When you have completed the full 7 days, rip up your paper and throw it away.
Forgiving others and yourself is a process, you can deal with it one layer at a time. There is no such thing as “getting it all done”. The best you can do is work on the emotions and issues as things come up.
2. A Forgiveness Formula that Has Inspired Millions
A formula by Dr. Catherine Ponder
Read, write or meditate on this affirmation treatment every day for at least 40 days.
I forgive everything, everyone, every experience, every memory of the past and present that needs forgiveness. I forgive positively everyone. I also forgive myself of past mistakes. God is love, and I am forgiven and governed by God’s love alone. God’s love is now adjusting my life. Realizing this, I abide in peace.
You can substitute God for Goddess, The Divine or The Universe or whatever feels true for you.

You must forgive the people who hurt you so you can get out of prison. You’ll never be free until you do. Let go of those wrongs they’ve done to you. Get that bitterness out of your life. That’s the only way you’re going to truly be free. You will be amazed at what can happen in your life when you release all that poison.
