As spring unfolds and people spend time in their gardens and yards, it’s time for replanting, renewing, and regenerating – Not just on the outside, but on the inside, too. This is a good time to rediscover and reignite our spirits.
Just as our flower-beds need dead branches pruned, wilted plants removed and the soil enriched, we may need to remove old burdens of regret, blame or resentment from around the heart in order to free ourselves for greater love and growth. And when it comes to doing that, forgiveness is the key- the magical healing element.
Take a few minutes each morning to breathe in love, and breathe out the light of forgiveness to the person or to the smaller version of yourself who is holding you in anger or upset. Let the light of your intention dissolve all negative energy. Feel the freedom as your heart grows. Believe, as forgiveness expert Azim Khamisa, does, that in freeing yourself from the past, you’ll discover the gold nugget hidden in the traumatic experience and be able to move on powerfully, even stronger, smarter and more firmly rooted than you were before.
