How to Forgive Someone Who Hurt You - for Good
This has got to be my favorite steps to forgiveness. Send Love.
Now in order for you to send love, you must first have love to send. Love comes first by finding peace within yourself, then learning how to give it to others.
Here is what Dr. Wayne Dyer has to say about 'sending love': "I spent years studying the teachings of Patanjali, and he reminded us several thousand years ago that when we are steadfast-which means that we never slip in our abstention of thoughts of harm directed toward others-then all living creatures cease to feel enmity in our presence. Now I know that we are all human: you, me, all of you. We do occasionally slip and retreat from our highest self into judgment, criticism, and condemnation, but this is not a rational for choosing to practice that kind of interaction. I can only tell you that when I finally got it, and I sent only love to another of God's children whom I had been judging and criticizing, I got the immediate result of inner contentment. I urge you to send love in place of those judgments and criticisms to others when you feel they impeded your joy and happiness, and hold them in that place of love. Notice that if you stay steadfast, when you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change."
A Meditation to End of Love Picture yourself at the termination of a quarrel or major dispute. Rather than reacting with old patterns of residual anger, revenge, and hurt, visualize offering kindness, love, and forgiveness. Do this right now by sending out these "true virtue" thoughts to any resentments you're currently carrying. Make this your standard response to any future altercations: I end on love, no matter what! With this message from Dr. Dyer, I believe that Love is the answer to all. Remember to Smile Everyday, Show up Everyday, and Succeed Everyday
