Forgiving yourself and/or others for past mistakes is a hard thing to do for many out there in the world, but it is the only way you can really set yourself free of the negative energy that harbors inside you when you are feeling pain, anger, resentment, judgement, disappointment, guilt, etc. Ridding yourself of those negative vibrations is essential in order for you to move forward. It sounds easier said than done, but once you release this negative energy, you will start to let in a new cycle of positive vibrations which will in turn make you feel as light as a feather! Doesn't That Sound Fabulous?

What Is Forgiveness? Forgiveness Is A Decision Of Letting Go The Past And Focusing On The Present. It's about taking control of your current situation, talking about the issue, and trying to reach a mutual decision/agreement on how to handle the situation in the future and then commit to it. If you can't reach an agreement, that's a bad sign, but if you learn from the past and do not repeat the same patterns, it's a good sign. It's the only way to prevent yourself from more disappointment, anger, resentment, distrust etc. By letting go of the past, you are allowing yourself to create a new cycle of energy to flow through you and bring good into your life.

Why Is It So Hard For Many People To Forgive Themselves And/Or Others For Past Mistakes?
Many of us hold grudges, keep in the anger and often develop feelings of revenge. Holding grudges can also be a way around resolving the issues at hand because our egos may be protecting us from any future repercussions with this person or ourselves and it may appear easier to hold all of that crap inside rather than be the better person and let the past go. Unfortunately many people harbor this negativity sometimes for years until they rid themselves of it or they hold it with them till their last breath..

What Is The Problem With Holding Grudges?
Holding grudges will work against you by repetitively creating the same anger, resentment and disappointment into your new relationships and experiences. You begin to wonder why you can't trust anyone or why the same feelings keep coming up over and over again with your new relationships and you end up blocking yourself from feeling free and worthy of anyone good in your life.

How Can I Forgive Myself And/Or Others For Past Mistakes?
Here Are Some Helpful Tips Below!

First you must make the decision to forgive. It is your choice, and the choice is really for yourself so that you can get rid of the negativity within you and start feeling lighter and come from a place of love instead of anger and resentment.

Once you have made the decision to forgive you must do it for yourself and for the right reasons, not in the hopes that someone will change for you. When you are forgiving for the right reasons, you must act on it, let go of the past and never throw it up in your face or anyone else's face after you have made your decision to forgive. Get rid of any judgments and let go of all negativity holding you back. Do whatever you need to do to get rid of the anger and all of those ugly feelings. You can resolve it through meditation or clearing your chakras, you can call, write, phone, or meet with the person and forgive them or ask them for forgiveness. You don't even have to talk to the person, you can write it out, repeat it, and then release it. You can hire a Life Coach or a Mentor that can guide you through the process if you are having a hard time with it. You can go to the beach and find a huge rock that represents the feelings you are experiencing and you can throw the rock as hard as you can in the ocean and scream as loud as you can so that you can release and let go of those feelings. There are many things you can do and it is best to do whatever resonates with you as long as you do something.

Author's Bio: 

My name is Reverend Jennie Reve-Almodovar. I am the Founder and President of YourJourney2Joy. I am a Certified Law Of Attraction Based Life Coach currently located in Queens, New York and an Ordained Metaphysical Minister. Just to give you some background about me, after 13 successful years in a Retail Loss Prevention/Asset Protection career, I finally decided after some contemplation that what I really yearned for was to live my life to the fullest, on "my own" terms, enjoy life and continue to appreciate how it works. I had a strong desire to do what I love to do which is studying and teaching The Law Of Attraction. A big part of my certification at the International College Of Metaphysical Theology was first learning a lot about myself, finding my inner joy, reaching unattainable goals, sticking to them and basically taking the fear and uncertainty I had inside me and replacing it with curiosity. Once I received my certification, I knew if I can accomplish this, I can certainly guide a willing individual on to the path of their own "Journey2Joy" and do it successfully. In just a few year's time I was able to manifest a number of wonderful and exciting experiences in my life that at one time I would never have dreamed would be possible! Life keeps getting better and better for me because the possibilities are now limitless!
