Be kind to yourself and others by inviting your mind to ‘awaken and connect’. An easy 3-minute meditation practice which may be repeated several times each day – enabling you to become mindful and connected with spirit. Regaining our natural state of peacefulness, equanimity and connection.
Do you know that the practice of forgiveness has a huge impact on our ability to stay mindful? Most of us will relate to finding ourselves lost in thought and feeling unpleasant due to resentment or hatred towards ourselves or other people. And we may be able to recall times when we’ve forgiven somebody and experienced a sense of peace and increased awareness.
In this article, I’d like to explain what forgiveness is, how it interacts with our mindfulness levels and how we can be more forgiving.
Forgiving means not pushing anyone, or any part of our own being, out of our heart. As we bring a full, compassionate presence to the wounds that we’ve been protecting, we release the armoring of hatred and blame that has been imprisoning our heart. We cannot will this process of forgiveness, but we can be willing. It is a challenging and courageous life practice that frees us to love without holding back.
