“When we forgive, we don’t change the past, but we change our futures.” — Norman L. Bouchard
I love this wisdom that was delivered to my email box thanks to “Quote of the Day.” As you might imagine, we focus a lot of attention on the power of forgiveness with people in their Akashic Records. And it’s a major topic of our classes as well.
In addition to this forgiveness truth, we talk about several others too. Often these discussions start with the concept that forgiveness is about healing the pain we have experienced in reaction to someone else’s actions. It is not about condoning what they have done or said, nor does it require an apology or even an acknowledgment of wrongdoing from the other person(s). With this truth, we take our power back, power we actually gave another, even though we may feel as though they took it from us. And this is true even when we are forgiving ourselves.
The Prayer of Forgiveness
Personally, I like to use “The Prayer of Forgiveness” that my Akashic partners Chanda Nancy Berlatsky, Sandra Gelinas, and I were given in the Records. It reminds me that when I forgive, I can ask for the light and love of the Divine to “release all pain, known and unknown, through all levels of my being, through all times and all dimensions, for the highest good of all.” That way, I don’t have to think about every detail of what I am forgiving. I don’t have to relive it, and I don’t risk re-imprinting and strengthening the pain.
I also can trust that all unknown subconscious consequences will be healed too. That way they won’t come back to haunt me later. After all, my goal is to “live every moment in the grace of the Divine, with an open heart and a peaceful mind,” so clearing my subconscious is very important.
My favorite forgiveness truth also is included in this prayer: “I bless and release all illusions of wrongness.”
“But that person was wrong! How is that an illusion?” people frequently exclaim. Again, their Records will remind us that forgiveness does not mean condoning. We’re not saying we should want more of what we are forgiving.
Calling Back Our Power
We are saying, however, that the very act of calling our power back makes us more powerful. It can make us less likely to give our power away next time. It also means we might remember to forgive sooner. Add those two together and we become stronger. So, if I am stronger after an incident, was anything really wrong? Isn’t that wrongness now an illusion?
For me, when I no longer sense any wrongness, that’s when I know I have forgiven. That’s when I know I am stronger, and that’s how I have changed my future.
And if it speaks to you, I hope you will enjoy this free copy of “The Prayer of Forgiveness.” As always, I’d love to read about your experience in the comments section.
