Forgiveness: 8 Check Points On This Journey To Freedom NEW!
by Trish Whynot, D.C.Ed. 

Forgiveness is a journey toward freedom from our past. It can be transformational, complex, is not to be taken lightly and cannot be commanded. If you are patient and open to the unfolding of forgiveness, your desire to forgive will be fulfilled.

There may be plateaus along the way where many of us are lulled into thinking the journey is complete, but you will know you have reached your destination when only love and gratitude remain in your heart for the person you have forgiven. When a hurtful past relationship has been transformed into an opportunity for personal growth and healing for which you are grateful—with or without an apology—then you know you are free.

Eliminate the Root Cause of What’s Blocking You with Intuitive Danielle MacKinnon
by Bob Olson

I’m so thrilled to share my latest reading with you. It happens to be a rather personal experience, but I’m willing to share it because I believe this type of reading has the potential to change lives. In fact, I genuinely trust that a session like this holds the power to awaken us to our soul’s plan.  

In my case, this reading helped me to eliminate the root cause of a hidden obstacle in my life. This obstacle had been subconsciously blocking me from fulfilling a long-awaited goal, yet I wasn’t even aware of its presence. Of course this is why subconscious blocks can be so destructive, because they can hold us back for years without us having any clue that they exist. Yet it took only one reading with intuitive Danielle MacKinnon to bring what was blocking me to my awareness. I was then quickly on my way to fulfilling my passion—now unencumbered by what had been holding me back.

Born to be Free
by Dzogchen Ponlop

Rebel Buddha is an exploration of what it means to be free and how it is that we can become free. Although we may vote for the head of our government, marry for love, and worship the divine or mundane powers of our choice, most of us don't really feel free in our day-to-day lives. When we talk about freedom, we're also talking about its opposite -- bondage, lack of independence, being subject to the control of something or someone outside ourselves. No one likes it, and when we find ourselves in that situation, we quickly start trying to figure out a way around it. Any restriction on our "life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness" arouses fierce resistance. When our happiness and freedom are at stake, we become capable of transforming ourselves into rebels.

Help Me to Change the World
by don Miguel Ruiz and don Jose Ruiz

I invite you to participate in a new dream for humanity, one in which all of us can live in harmony, truth, and love. In this dream, people of all religions and all philosophies are not just welcome, but respected. It doesn’t matter whether you believe in Christ, Moses, Allah, Brahma, Buddha, or any other being or master; everybody is welcome to share this dream. Each one of us has our own beliefs, our own point of view. There are billions of different points of view, but it’s the same light, the same force of life behind each one of us.

Co-Creation: Reclaiming What Is Rightfully Yours Through Love 
by William Frank Diedrich

In order to co-create we have to clean up blaming and resentments. Co-creation is creating using the guidance of your Inner Being, your Higher Self. Anything you are holding against another is holding you. Anything you are holding against yourself is holding you. Power is found in complete responsibility.

Forgive And Give Thanks
by Marlene Buffa

From stuffed turkeys to full tummies, we celebrate Thanksgiving by immersing ourselves in the moment. We enjoy ourselves by coming together and sharing our food and memories. We reflect on our country, our faith and our family. The day-long – and sometimes week-long – preparation of one meal, testifies to the significance of the day. Along with our gratitude, Thanksgiving offers us a time to express forgiveness, as well as thanks.

The Naked Truth: Weight Loss and Our Relationship with God
by Trish Whynot, D.C.Ed. 

Since each of us is at one and the same time a physical and spiritual being, everything in our lives, every problem we confront, has both a physical and spiritual aspect. Even those things that seem simply physical in nature, such as our bodies, are in truth also spiritual.  It makes sense then that if we go deeply into our relationship with our physical selves that we will soon find ourselves in the realm of spirit. At the root of everything lies our relationship with God[1]. We find Him wherever we look, even when we look into our most bodily selves as we struggle with weight

Condition Yourself to Love Unconditionally
by Mary Jo Shaffer


Even in the healthiest of relationships, opportunities abound to find fault, criticize or "tweak" the other person no matter whether we are talking about a mate, a child or a friend. Most of us were raised in an environment where rather than focusing on the positive, we were taught to zoom in and dwell on the negative. Breaking that habitual way of thinking is a matter of conditioning our minds to refocus and learn to love with abandon, without any requirements, without any rules and without any limitations.

Here is our list of top ten ways to condition yourself to love unconditionally.

Love, Compassion, and Tolerance
by His Holiness the Dalai Lama
 
 “Love, compassion, and tolerance are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive.” 
 
The essence of all religions is love, compassion, and tolerance. Kindness is my true religion. No matter whether you are learned or not, whether you believe in the next life or not, whether you believe in God or Buddha or some other religion or not, in day-to-day life you must be a kind person. When you are motivated by kindness, it doesn’t matter whether you are a practitioner, a lawyer, a politician, an administrator, a worker, or an engineer: whatever your profession or field, deep down you are a kind person. Love, compassion, and tolerance are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive. If you have a particular faith or religion, that is good. But you can survive without it if you have love, compassion, and tolerance. The clear proof of a person’s love of God is if that person genuinely shows love to fellow human beings.

Take Me to Truth, Undoing the Ego: An Interview with Authors Nouk Sanchez and Tomas Vieira
by Gene Bogart, Forgiveness TV

Gene: As potential readers see literally thousands of spiritually oriented books out there, how does Take Me to Truth, Undoing the Ego present a unique benefit to those who sincerely desire spiritual awakening?

Nouk and Tomas: This is not your intellectual brand of awakening. This is for those who genuinely want to undo the root cause of all suffering – the ego. We offer a guide for those who wish to participate in the daily practice of undoing their ego. Awakening occurs through the conscious application of three major principles being, Quantum forgiveness, Radical self-inquiry and Now moment presence. Many religious and spiritual studies are predicated on the belief that God created this world; our book is based on the principles of A Course in Miracles, which explains that God did not create this world, we did. From absolute Oneness, which is Infinite Love there emerged a “tiny mad idea” of separation, an illusion of separate individuals. We fell into a dream of this present world of time and space; a dream of duality.

Can You Afford Not to Forgive?
by Laura Scott

During a deep discussion someone close to me revealed that they were unable to forgive themselves for some things they had done. They knew it was preventing them from moving forward with their dreams, but they had absolutely no idea how to get past it. Watching someone you love suffer is awful, and worse if you are witnessing needless suffering. It got me to thinking about the purpose of guilt and how to help someone, even myself, to move into a place of forgiveness.

Struggling To Forgive the Unforgivable
by Immaculée Ilibagiza

I was deep in prayer when the killers came to search the house a second time.

It was past noon, and I’d been praying the rosary since dawn for God to give His love and forgiveness to all the sinners in the world. But try as I might, I couldn’t bring myself to pray for the killers. That was a problem for me because I knew that God expected us to pray for everyone, and more than anything, I wanted God on my side.

“Financial” Matters
by Dr. Trish Whynot

Money issues are encountered by many on their journey toward self-discovery. Be it financial lack or difficulty enjoying the money you have, money struggles are most often not the “real” issue. Money is an energy and a financial issue is a messenger … it is an indicator … it is a symptom. Financial lack can indicate a depleted state—an imbalance with your giving and receiving. It manifests as more money going out than is coming in. Financial lack can also be indicating issues with value, self-worth or image. Financial struggles can be presenting a message that you have placed too much weight on money. If you place your safety and security on how much money you have in the bank, you have given it too much weight and spending money could be frightening, even if you have an abundance of it. These are but a few messages that your financial matters could be attempting to bring you.

On Developing Resiliency
by Asoka Selvarajah


Life is tough.

Of that, there is no doubt. Buddhism actually teaches that the essence of the unenlightened life IS suffering. This is the truth of it. Nobody has it easy. Neither pauper nor king, neither bacterium nor whale - all suffer to a greater or lesser extent, and all are subject to that ultimate suffering we call Death. Life feeds on life. People, it would seem, often feed on each other.

Fighting Terror with Forgiveness 
by D. Patrick Miller
 
Let’s face it -­ most people probably think of forgiveness as the last resort of losers. It’s what you’re left with after you’ve been victimized and can’t figure out a way to inflict revenge. If there’s no way to even the score, then you might as well settle for feeling a little better about yourself by becoming noble. And if you forgive what happened to you, maybe someday you can forget all about it. Or, maybe whoever hurt you will eventually feel guilty about what they did, and come begging for your forgiveness. Then you get to decide whether they deserve it. (Probably not!)

Angel to Angel 
by Skye Thomas

Years ago, my minister spoke to us about how you could solicit the help of your guardian angels to help with conflict resolution. She told us stories about how she and others had successfully asked their guardian angels to speak to the enemy's guardian angel. The idea being that when you find yourself in an argumentative situation with someone, that you could request that your guardian angel talk angel to angel with their guardian angel about finding a win-win situation. She gave us examples of times when after asking for the angels to help mediate the problem, that the other party suddenly softened and the solutions began to easily show themselves. As she told the stories of her successes with this approach to problem solving, I began to think about how to use it in my own life.

Some Things Can Be Fixed; Others Must Heal
by Thom Rutledge

Are you a fixer? When someone tells you a problem they are having, do you immediately feel the need to offer advice? Is it difficult for you to just listen to someone who is in distress, to just be there for them without knowing precisely what to say or do? Are you uncomfortable with anything being in limbo? Are you addicted to certainties? Does your self-esteem depend on your ability to make things right for other people? If you're answering yes to some of these questions, you are probably a fixer.

Ask Psychic Medium Laura Scott (Issue #4)
by Laura Scott

Dear Laura,
I will be moving out of the state I presently live in soon, however my house in this state has not sold yet, and my husband has offered to stay here until it is.  My major concern is that I do not feel he will be joining me when the house sells.  For two years we have had problems since I found out he cheated on me.  We are supposedly trying to work our problems out, but, I get the impression, that he does not really want to.  I'm desperately afraid he will cheat again, and doesn't really love me at all.  I am very confused, and don't know where to turn.  What are your thoughts on this?

The Unburdened Heart
The Unburdened Heart
5 Keys to Forgiveness and Freedom
by
Mariah Burton Nelson

 

 

"I was 14 when Bruce started molesting me. He was 25, already a father and coach. The abuse ended three summers later when my family happened to move across the country. The impact of the abuse persisted for more than two decades. Then I wondered, Might forgiveness be possible? Then, everything changed."

Thus opens Mariah Burton Nelson's new book. Drawing on her poignant story of betrayal and reconciliation, along with new psychological research, ancient spiritual wisdom, poetry, and original interviews with others who have forgiven for offenses great and small, she shows how forgiveness can heal. The one who is healed -- the forgiver -- becomes free from the pain of the past, and also free to love differently, and love more, in the future.

Mariah discussed The Unburdened Heart on Good Morning America on May 29, 2000.

How and Why I Forgave My Molester
by Mariah Burton Nelson

When I was fourteen, fifteen, and sixteen, my swimming coach, a husband and father, molested me. He convinced me we were having "an affair."

Much later, in my thirties, as I began to understand that the accurate term was not "an affair" but "statutory rape," I became enraged. I had been a young teenager! He was twenty-five! That’s not adultery, that’s sexual abuse!

The Traumatized Heart

I tried to fight him with my physical strength, but he was 6'1' and I was just a 5'6' teenage girl, no matter how physically fit I was. I tried to fight him with my mind, telling him the legal implications of what he was doing and that just got him mad. As he dragged me into an alley and started beating me, I realized I was powerless and prayed to the God I had never been raised to believe in to help me choose my life.

I didn’t hear the “somewhere else” part because my own internal monologue was too loud. “Go to the bus stop? At four in the afternoon? Baby-sit? What about my work?

In The Spirit of Happiness  
The Seeker
by The Monks of New Skete

It is many years now since he first visited the monastery, though the details of that day linger quietly in his memory. On that clear October afternoon he thought upstate New York was among the most beautiful places in the world. He had come from the Far West, sweeping airborne over ten states with barely a cloud in the sky. From the plane, the beauty of the Catskills, the Hudson River Valley, then finally the vague outline of the Adirondacks to the north took his breath away. He had always loved flying, but passing through the vast expanse of space, from one time zone to the next, he sensed a parallel passage taking place inwardly as well, one leading him inexorably into a new life. Were we to give him a name, none would be better than simply "the Seeker."

An Open Heart

There is, however, another level of experience. True happiness must be pursued on the mental level as well.

We are all at a time where we must face this question, not only in regards to dealing with wartime tragedies, but also with dealing with personal spiritual and emotional wounds which are also crying out to be addressed.

Forgiveness, A Journey To Freedom
by Trish Whynot, D.C.Ed.
 
Forgiveness is a journey toward freedom from our past. It is a process that takes some effort and along the road there are plateaus that we reach. We may think that forgiveness is complete at these resting points and then something comes up to show us that there is more work to be done. These plateaus are where we tend to get stuck, to be hard on ourselves and to judge. The process of forgiveness is transformational; it is complex, not to be taken lightly and not something that can be done on command. Be patient and tender with yourself on your journey toward forgiveness. You will know you have forgiven when only love and gratitude remain in your heart for the person you desire to forgive and for the opportunity for personal growth and healing that was presented.
