Life is so fast. One day we are being that confident and challenging teenager and then before we know it, we are all grown up and running our own life! I’m well passed my teenage years and at 51 years of age, I can put my hands up and say I have learnt a lot.
Learning the Hard Way
It’s unfortunate that most of us tend to learn by doing. We put our two hefty feet into a big mess, generally of our own creation and then jump about a little – just to make sure we really suffer as much as we possibly can! I used to ask; ‘Why?’ Why do we continuously put ourselves through such stressful learning experiences? At this stage in my life, I am not so concerned about the why because most of the reasons are well buried in subconscious memories. Besides from my learning and experience in the energy retuning work that I do, I tend to get that repeating the habit of learning the hard way means we have an unresolved need to be hard on ourselves and put ourselves down. So it is time to change that script or scripts that live in our subconscious.
Making Friday My Day Of Forgiving
One of the habits that I have introduced in my life is make my Friday, my forgiveness day. If truth be known I try to take some time at the end of the day to do this, but Friday is the day I encourage everyone to focus on forgiveness of self and others.
The technique of Forgiveness Friday:
Take a little time to look back over your week. Acknowledge all the times that you put yourself under pressure, through the thoughts you were thinking or the actions you took. It could have been eating a food that you knew would cause your digestive system stress, or working late too many days and leaving yourself low in energy for your family. Might have been that you put yourself down in your head, or you kept putting others down or the simple one of spreading gossip.
What ever the thought or deed, just put your hand up and say you’re sorry. Then ask forgiveness from yourself. I imagine I am bowing to the image of my former self that was stressed as I say:
I truly love you
I truly am sorry
I truly ask your forgiveness
I truly need your help to change my thoughts beliefs and habits
I truly am grateful
I truly am blessed
I then do this in my head for all the stressful memories that come to be from the day. I imagine saying these phrases to anyone or anything that I got stressed around, sending that energy to them.
You might give this ago and see how you get on. It’s my way of forgiving myself and then I can forgive others as I ask them to forgive me for any hurt I may have caused them in the day. I suppose it is like a prayer mantra to the universe.
