Forgiveness is a deliberate power that you wield - releasing yourself from suffering - relinquishing the need to make others responsible for how you feel - acknowledging that others are not in control of your life - of the worth that you feel, - of the freedom that you hold. Forgiveness is upholding your power; living your truth; acknowledging the freedom to love unconditionally - In forgiveness - you remind yourself that if others hurt you - it is because being hurtful or unkind is also how they are with themselves - at least in this moment - and it is not a reflection of you.   May this help you in completing forgiveness in your life.  Namaste!  With much love, dorothy

Thank you for sending this to me. My heart needs to hear and eventually “know”. I’m certain I will be listening to this a lot. I’m grateful for the blessings you have sent.

My heart is screaming with the anguish of not knowing how to forgive... I have a tool for that now- always did, just didn’t know if.

Wow
Sometimes we hold back feelings from our past and don’t even know they’re still effecting us today. This was so amazing because it almost felt cleansing. You no longer need to harbor those negative feelings or attach yourself to those who have hurt you. Because you can choose to start a new.

Love hurts me in a way I can’t describe. I feel so rejected and unloved. But, I understand that the way she’s treating me is the relationship she has with herself. I love her but don’t want to pity her with my feelings or push her away with my tears.

Forgiveness
I learned that forgiveness is more for me than anyone else. It feels freeing to let go of past anger/resentment/ hurt. Forgiving people who aren’t sorry though is the hardest part. But it is so worth it to forgive and move on then dwell on why certain people act the way they do. Forgiveness is something I struggle with but I’m slowly starting to realize it’s better for me than anything else.

I felt moved by that tbh. I learned that forgiving people not only lets you live in the present but helps you let go of things that happened in the past that’s holding you down.

For me this concept of freedom and peace through letting go makes so much sense on a grand scale, but putting it to practice in daily life with people close to me is much, much more challenging.

I’ve learned that instead of having a grudge on a person, try and stand up for your relationship with this person and work things out. Even if it doesn’t work out, you sat least found the answer that they did not speak to you..

Letting go
I learned that it’s not my fault if someone treats me in an unpleasant way. I learned that the hurt and suffering from the past is me not letting it go. I learned I need to be my own savior..I need to be one with myself. And I can do that.

Forgiveness
Everything in this meditation spoke to the painful, nearly non-existent relationship I currently have with my mother—someone I have been struggling to forgive for trying to end my relationship with my boyfriend. While I’ve been focusing on the health and happiness of myself and my relationship, I have found it extremely difficult not only to accept that my mother would not change, but accepting that I may never be able to have a healthy relationship with her. Two people must forgive each other to move past pain and build a healthy, loving bond. In forgiveness, we are holding onto past pain, and sometimes we must forgive someone and part ways to continue the pain from reoccurring. Forgiveness can be letting go, with love, and that is something I have been preparing to do with my family. As painful as it is to let go of people that I love, I want to forgive them and move on with my life, rather than continuously ask them to love and respect who I am and what I want. ⚡️

Eloquence
I have never heard such an eloquent definition of forgiveness. Absolutely breathtaking. I have understood for years the whys and the hows and the reasons to forgive. I have had to forgive people and actions that have occurred in my life that I had never even imagined or considered that there would be a necessity to forgive. But I have successfully done so and in so doing, I have freed myself. I appreciate the absolute honesty and impeccable choice of words that are used to convey this most important aspect of personal growth. Thank you so much for this beautiful lesson in love.

Right now, and everyday
I learned that... For someone my age I don’t think that I should have to feel the pain that I am feeling right now, and this pain is a deep, killing, stabbing, relentless, horrible pain that is....it just gets worse. I want to get rid of it, but nothing seems to help.

True forgiveness
This is very real. When someone does something to hurt us they may come asking for forgiveness and when we do give it, it is an emphatic thank you, as if we did something for Them. But the truth is, we forgive for ourselves not for the other party. It is a spiritual experience, the act of forgiving, and the more heinous the offense the more powerful of spiritual experience. Martin Luther King jr said it best, “Hate cannot drive out hate. Only love can do that.”

Perspective
It’s easy to feel victimised when you are hurt by the actions of friends, family, or your partner. I learned that to eradicate the weakness that accompanies being the victim, you simply must forgive others for their mistakes or pursuits which cause harm to you; understanding that ultimately we are all human and have the potential to upset others. This grants you the power to shield your self-worth from the behaviour of those around you.
J
Jonathan
Feeling well and reflective
I tend to dwell on things, replay what was said, how something could have been said better or differently. I also internalize when someone gets upset with me and is cruel. This meditation is helping me to release that negative energy and move beyond it. I know this isn’t something that I have to own and it’s a choice to move beyond it. I’m going to try harder to move forward when I encounter those situations.

Kimberly
Forgiveness
I find it hard to forgive people who hurt me because I could never imagine inflicting it on them. From the beginning I always have high expectations of people and don’t expect them to do hurtful things - so I feel disappointment along with pain which makes it harder to move on from past experiences. But despite how hard it is you must forgive in order to live healthily and happily. I know now that it’s a big hurdle to cross for me.

This is forgiveness
I am slowly learning more about myself and sometimes I find this very difficult. Forgiveness is a area I struggle with. Reflecting on this, I now am beginning to understand that the obstacle facing me is truly letting go and releasing myself from re-running hurtful events in my mind. So the issue is to practice forgiveness in a more meaningful way in which I am able to benefit from the act of forgiveness, knowing that I can put this behind me and not letting it become a repeating obstacle in my life. This is difficult for me and I will need to persevere. I’ll reflect on my progress in due course.

I’m slowly learning to let go and I believe I’ve forgiven others and they too have forgiven me.
I accept what is today. I cannot change the past or anything or anyone else. I can only change my own thoughts and perception of what was, what is and what’s yet to come.

Forgiveness is a deliberate power you wield
This is a great insight. It says that the act of forgiveness comes from a position of strength, not weakness. Letting a past experience stay in the past and not allowing it to disturb your peace in the present. Wonderful!

Only one hurt
I've not experienced much emotional hurt at the hands of others in recent memory. I can take this session’s teaching and share it with folks who have suffered at the hands of others however. My big emotional hurts reside in my past. They are behind me and shall stay there. I tend not to dwell on them at all in my current life. I would recommend the same to anyone currently suffering emotional pain caused by another...”let it go” ”move beyond” wisdom from Disney movies/songs: https://youtu.be/L0MK7qz13bU

forgiveness for myself
I’m trying to learn to forgive myself and create a new path so my significant other can see I’m working on change as well. i did something that should have never happened after a night out and i hurt him and myself; i need to find a way to forgive myself and learn to create a stronger love through this. i keep getting insecure and saying “you shouldn’t be with me you deserve better” but he is reluctant to think that way. our relationship is special, but things happen and anger gets the best of me. I’m trying to learn how exactly i can forgive myself and how he can forgive me as well.

I think it's so important to understand the part about the fact that when someone is hurting you when you're being kind it's because they are hurting themselves too, so it's not a reflection of you. Forgive and let them go.

Forgiveness 🙏
I learned that, when someone treats you bad, it's just a reflection of how they feel. Forgiveness can make people grow in their confidence and in their actions. They will feel appreciated in the way they are, they will feek worthy and undertanding. It's very important to show that every human being can make mistakes but they not have to be judged by that one thing they didn't do right

Foolish!
“Forgiveness” is THE most difficult I have ever heard. A “Pollyanna” of fantasy. To be fair, I must contemplate your words. You speak of forgetting the past: IMPOSSIBLE when that past is filled with BETRAYAL at the hands of people you should implicitly Trust: (1) a violent and abusive father who beats a 6-month old son with his brass buckle because the baby cries and is also a womanizer who couldn’t “keep it in his pants.” FORGIVENESS? (2) a daughter who, when young, expressed love; but now 35 and married to a n angry guy who tells my daughter that I am an idiot. FORGIVENESS!? Not when you are betrayed by people you would sacrifice your life for. Your words are an unrealistic fantasy.

Forgiveness....
Is one of the hardest things to actually do in life! You can be coached on it, meditate about it, & learn to forgive. This was a nice life-coaching lesson, however my only criticism is that there wasn’t any direction on how to actually FULLY forgive & let go of past hurts or how to allow yourself to trust again.

Forgiveness
So when you forgive, you take back your power. That person no longer has the power to control your thoughts. Part of forgiveness could be removing yourself from that person. Remember that you can only control your reaction to a situation

Truly Life Changing
As I listened to her soft, yet so powerful voice explain to me the true meaning of forgiveness I realized something. The way I was forgiving, it was so wrong. Sometimes I would only forgive to make peace between me and a person even if I didn’t really forgive them. Sometimes I did it right. But the way she explains it made me view forgiveness on a whole other level. I believe that this will change the way I forgive forever. Truly life changing. Not a single flaw. Five stars.

By gaining more knowledge of a person or a situation misunderstandings can be cleared and forgiveness possible

I forgive myself. I forgive others. I need to leave and stop reliving my past, the hurt, the pain, the disappointments. Instead, I will learn from it. I will bring to my present and my future a valuable lesson from it and bring out the best version of me. My life is a celebration and no one can take that away from me

Reminder
I usually replay this twice or three times a week, to release all the pain, anger and hate that might be in my system due to a moment, a memory, a person that might have cause it. It’s very important to fully understand the power in letting go of such pain and forgiveness. It’s easier said that done, but a gentle reminder every now and then seems to be working for me.

I’m trying hard to forgive
I’m really trying but it’s hard when there’s trauma involved. I keep thinking I’ve forgiven and put it behind me but then I live with PTSD every day and I’m just thankful for my meditation. Want to live in a state of forgiveness but feel that the anger and fear is so hardwired in my system- it’s hard to let go.

What?
“Your suffering is because of a misunderstanding?’ Forgive me, Dorothy, with respect, you are incredibly naive! My Experiences include: - Tell a 5-year old boy why his father left him and his mother for another woman - explain to him why his father couldn’t keep his zipper closed - explain to a young girl why her own father incestuously raped his own daughter. These are just a few of my life experiences. Forgiveness?!? A work in progress. What is miraculous is how my life transformed me into a very loving man. Many at Aura refer to me as a man of kindness and love.

It’s Not Anyone’s Fault

I learned that, how others treat me have nothing to do with me. My life is my life and I can choose what and who I want in it and who and what I don’t want in it. I want to be at peace with my feelings and my life. It will take time, patience and effort but I’m tired of feeling like this. I’m tired of being in a constant battle with myself. I don’t want to fight anymore, I just to be at peace.

For-giving...
I found this to be a powerful session full of many nuggets of wisdom! Allowing ourselves to break free of the bonds of someone else’s wrongdoing is only accomplished through forgiveness. To forgive is to remove their perceived power from them. To forgive is to truly show who is the bigger person. The greatest example I can think of is Christ on the cross after receiving his crown of thorns smashed into his head, countless beatings, a scourging and spikes driven in his hands & feet. He somehow has the power to give us one last important lesson by example ... “Forgive them Father, for they know not what they do!” To forgive is to take back your Power, to forget is stop giving it back to them. Maybe not easy, but wise to do. Love IS the answer! ❤️☮️🍀

What someone might say to you or about you negatively, may just be a reflection of what they are feeling inside about themselves. Don’t take it personally because it may not be about you.

I have the power
To forgive. To not let someone or something that has hurt me be something I have to carry for so long. I hold the power to forgive. To not use my celebration of daily life thinking about the past or hurt. The hurt I felt could have very well been because of something pain in you and nothing to do with me. This is my life. I forgive you.

Rethinking Forgiveness as Resistance
- “forgiveness occurs the moment you take back your power” - forgiveness is being responsible for being the best version of yourself you can be right now—in the present—as a means to finally move on from past hurt/mistakes, instead of dwelling on something that doesn’t define who you are🥰

Forgiveness
I learned the value of forgiveness through this meditation. When we forgive others and our self we make it possible to let painful things which have occurred in our past go go. We also gave him the ability to treat others with compassion and unconditional love rather than to blaming them for the negative things we feel. Forgiveness May make us more receptive do you information about a particular situation. Forgiveness is a pathway to less negatively and being our best selves.

Finally able to forgive
I have been unable to forgive this one person for how they treated me in the past. I was stuck and knew I needed to “let it go” as my husband has said many times. But I was unable to fully release it. When you said that it is how they treat themselves and isn’t me.....wow. I was able to truly release that pain and heartache that I have held on for years!! Thank you!!
