One of the most precious gifts we can give to ourselves is the act of forgiveness to others and to us. Sometimes we have to experience difficulties in order to grow. Holding a distaste or grudges for the people involved in the situation, blaming them for our suffering only makes us sad and bitter. It’s understandable that we need to heal, so during that period of time we may experience discomfort, pain, anger and other negative emotions. But don’t stay there for long! Accept any responsibility you may had and move on.
Letting go is an act of self care, once you decide to forgive, things just shift for the better, the quality of life just improves. Sadly some of the people that hurt us will never understand how much pain they’ve caused, sometimes we’ll have to forgive them without even receiving an apology. But the mere act of letting them go opens the door to Freedom for us, and life it’s beautiful in the other side!
I recently came to the realization that I had huge limiting believes that were blocking me to succeed in life and I’ve been holding to them since my childhood. So I made a list of the things that hurt me in the past. I also listed all the beautiful things that happened because of that hurt and realized that the pain was necessary for growth. Once I figured this out, I decided to forgive myself and others related to this trauma, I instantly felt like a huge weight that I’ve been carrying around for years lifted off my shoulders.
Ask yourself, is there someone you need to forgive? If so, give yourself this beautiful gift and do it now. You hold the key to your own freedom.
I’ve been digging a lot of information about how to become the best version of myself. I’ve read about a 100 or so books regarding this topic, they all conclude that in order to be awesome you have to be yourself. The best you can be is you, because that is your superpower. We tend to walk around ourselves trying to fulfill someone else’s expectation, we learn to do this when we are little, because we are depending in be pleasant to others in order to get what we need or want. Once we become adults, we have to let go of this behavior, be truth to ourselves and raise to the occasion. Otherwise, we are just stuck repeating the same painful patterns over an over, and when you don’t please yourself you end up been miserable and pleasing no one anyway, so who cares?. The universe will support you as long as you are truth to yourself, no matter what. Live the life you want, the one that you dream of! the one you are afraid to tell your loved ones you desire. Follow your soul, this is your guide and already knows where you must go.
First and foremost thank you so much for checking out my blog! the intention is to share with you the spiritual lessons that I have experienced and help you create a better reality.
I’ll start by introducing my self, I am Beatriz Cabrera, started my spiritual awakening about 25 years ago, when I stumbled across my first philosophy book. I was so amazed by the words I encounter, I immediately knew there was something beyond my current reality and understanding and wanted to know more about it, so I became a seeker of truth. I deviated from my mission for a while by choosing a different career path, immersing my self in an unfulfilling career and drinking a lot. I tried way too hard to fit in and please others. Until one great day, I decided to be true to my self and I found joy and peace. For the first time in my life I felt connected to my self and started manifesting the life I’ve always wanted.
