Everything in life we do becomes a habit, knowingly or unknowingly. Therefore, it is no surprise that even the way we think becomes a habit. There was a time when I used to say “I don’t like to be ritualistic”. Ritual actually means an “observance of set forms in public worship”.  First of all, if you observe Nature, there seems to be an order and system in life. However, compared to other living forms, as human beings of the highest order of living forms, we are endowed with an intelligence that gives us a FREEDOM OF CHOICE  to live our lives in a divine way. It requires us to think positively to live a divine life which means making a conscious choice. Once we have determined our choice it still requires a lot of practice to make it a habit. Forgiveness is an important virtue to inculcate in our self development.

As I was listening carefully to Louise L. Hay on the topic of Forgiveness I was so impressed I decided to share it verbatim here in my blog. I had to write down the affirmations on Forgiveness she suggests 24:24 mins into the audio book.

The concept of forgiveness looked so practical in terms of living a joyous fulfilling life. Keeping a positive mind is like having a pure mind where the thoughts are flowing freely in all serenity and purity. Thoughts are energy and a mind that is polluted with negativity prevents the flow of that energy and gets us stuck in our thinking creatively and makes us stagnant. You can create your own list of affirmations that you could practice on forgiveness but I liked the ones Louise L. Hay said that I decided to share it here on my blog.

So here is the transcript of what she said in her audio book on Forgiveness:


You can never be free of bitterness as long as you hold unforgiving thoughts. How can you be happy in this moment if you continue to choose to think angry and resentful thoughts?

Thoughts of bitterness cannot create JOY, no matter how justified you feel you are, no matter what they did, if you insist on holding on to the past, then you will never be free.

Forgiveness of yourself and of others will release you from the prison of the past. When you feel that you are stuck in some situation, or when your affirmations are not working, it usually means there is some more forgiving to be done.

When you do not flow freely with life in the present moment it usually means you are holding on to a past moment. It can be regret, sadness, hurt, fear, guilt, blame , anger, resentment and sometimes a desire for revenge. Each one of these states comes from a space of unforgiveness, a refusal to let go and to come into the present moment.

ONLY IN THE PRESENT MOMENT CAN YOU CREATE YOUR FUTURE. If you are holding on to the past, you cannot BE IN THE PRESENT. It is only in this NOW MOMENT that your thoughts and words are POWERFUL, so you really don’t want to waste your current thoughts to continue to create your FUTURE from the garbage of the past. When you blame another, you give your own power away because you are placing the responsibility for your feelings on someone else.

People in our lives behave in ways that trigger uncomfortable responses in us. However, they did not get into our minds to create the buttons that have been pushed. Taking responsibility for our own feelings and reactions is mastering our ability to respond. In other words we learn to consciously choose rather than to simply react. Forgiveness is usually a tricky and confusing concept for many people.

There is a difference between forgiveness and acceptance.

Forgiveness does not mean that you condone their behavior and the act of forgiveness really takes place in your own mind. The reality of the act of forgiveness has nothing to do with the other person.

It has to do with setting ourselves free from holding on to the pain.

It is simply an act of releasing yourself from the negative energy.

Forgiveness also does not mean allowing the painful actions and hurtful behaviors from the other person to continue in your life.

Sometimes forgiveness means “letting go”.

You forgive them and release them.

Taking a stand and setting a healthy boundary is often the most loving thing you can do not only for yourself but for the other person as well.

You only live in the “NOW” and you can choose to think thoughts that make you feel good RIGHT NOW.

You can choose to practice to thinking thoughts that create a positive today and a positive tomorrow. KNOW

You are creating positive thinking habits that will serve you well FOREVER.
