This is part 2 of the article I shared last month about moving from anger to forgiveness. If you haven’t read it, I invite you to grab a cuppa and spend 3 mins reading it and letting it sink in.
In this part, I am sharing the steps on how to forgive others. Each step may take a while. So be patient before jumping onto the next step. You may spend days on one stage, do it on repeat or repeat each step multiple times. You are in charge – do as it resonates. And be patient as we are dealing with the trapped emotion that may have been sitting for a while.
Step 1: Recognize the anger energy – how do you feel when you are angry? Notice your body cues.
- Does it feel heavy?
- Do you feel suffocating?
- What triggers you? Does it remind you of someone?
- Does it remind you of the experience of childhood?
- Who do you think did wrong to you?
Step 2: Find a way to release anger. Anger cannot simply be replaced by forgiveness, and anger needs an outlet. So before we move to forgiveness, let’s create a container for releasing anger and similar emotions. Some of the ways I suggest to my clients are:
- Scream or cry in a pillow.
- Yell in a safe place (e.g. car parked in the garage) where no one can hear you and imagine the person who hurt you sitting in front of you.
- Punch a punching bag.
- Stomp your feet when no one’s around.
And do it on repeat every time you see anger rearing its head.
Step 3: Forgiveness
- Create a safe bubble. Call upon Christ Consciousness, divine power, and higher guidance.
- Ask for help to forgive the person for letting go of the baggage you have been carrying.
- Call that person’s energy.
- Talk to the energy and forgive the person against who you are holding anger or resentment.
- You can use ho’oponopono prayer for letting it go: “I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you, I love you.”
Step 4: Karmic Ties:
Remember, we are here on this journey orchestrated by our souls. The soul chooses each challenge, and it’s our free will how and what we make out of the experience. Most of the abuse/ torture criticism comes from Karmic relationships.
And if and only if you feel ready – allow your higher self to show you how you can look at your life from a higher perspective and know that you need to let go of the anger to disconnect from them energetically.
Forgiveness is thus liberating. You don’t have to ask for forgiveness physically – know that anger/resentment/bitterness doesn’t serve you.
When you are ready to forgive the other – it will help you be free from the energetic cords, energy fragments, karmic ties, and toxicity of the other person’s energy.
