Today’s forgiving journal: New creations

Today’s forgiving journal is about new creations.

I sanded a bench today for my cousin and her family. Then, I polyurathaned the wood. And I watched it come alive in front of my eyes. My hands did this.

I had no idea that this fact – my hands helping to make wood more beautiful – would Bench 1 June 12 2016touch me inside as much as it did. My whole insides became warm and full of energy. I had emotions welling up that I can’t really identify. I am moving through judging and forgiving, I get that. And I thank … everybody!

It’s time for my forgiving journal:

1 – Self-forgiveness: I forgive myself for judging myself as not having the capacity to create anything beautiful. I forgive myself for judging my mom as ugly because of her mental illness. I forgive myself for judging myself as worthless for being born of a mom like mine.
2 – Letting go: I let go of all shame associated with my mom and being a creative woman into the Light. I let go of any concern about outing myself for having negative stuff with my family. And I let it go – free!
3 – Gratitude: I am grateful to my mom for carrying me in her uterus for 9 months and for nourishing my life. I am grateful for learning how my own creativity takes shape and form. It is beautiful.

I have a new affirmation: ‘I am a powerful co-creator of loving, nourishment and beauty.” 🙂 Can you keep this in your heart for me? Thank you so much.

I love you.

Love, Debbie
