Today is Forgiving Fridays & an opp for you to post about forgiveness – ANY DAY this week! YAY! (See guidelines below ❤ ) It’s also my contribution to Frank of Dutch Goes the Photo’s Weekly Challenge, Travel. Frank, I am traveling both to new inner places (my heart!) and outer (the beach with someone I love). Thank you for helping me to know it.
Today’s Forgiving Fridays is the incredible results of forgiveness.
A dear friend shared with me yesterday that she used to not like forgiveness, because she didn’t know what was on the other side. Once she actually EXPERIENCED it, she got so much inner freedom that she wanted to do it regularly.
This really touched my heart, and it made me ask myself, “What do I get from forgiveness?”
Four bloggers shared last week on their experiences with forgiveness!!
Di of Matters for the Heart wrote a gorgeous post on being really kind to that little one within (including acceptance and loving).
Myonelife.today contributed an amazing question for us, “What is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life? “
Nikki of Flying Through Water gave us a penguin pointer (love them) on the inner value of flowing in new directions.
Etta of Simple Etta D. shared the great value of forgiving what was and living now.
Thank you all so much. ❤
When I asked myself what I get from forgiveness, the answer is love. A true, deep, open experience within of love. Does that sound cliché? OMG maybe it is!
One example of love for me is that I do these forgiving Fridays, and each week I share my heart with you. My love is on every word that I write. Opening my heart is a new experience in many ways, God how vulnerable it feels. Time for forgiving:
I forgive myself for judging myself for forgetting that true love is always safe.
I forgive myself for judging myself as unworthy of expressing the joy of love.
And I forgive myself for judging others as anything less than love.
The truth is that we are all manifestations of love. (I am pausing to breathe it in, please join me!)
My partner and I went to the beach this past weekend to create a fun banner for Forgiving Fridays. I took a selfie of myself doing this, and he took a photo of me doing a selfie! This is another example of love – the incredible joy of sharing it. I am so grateful to this man, and I dedicate today’s Forgiving Fridays to him.
I love you.
Here are the guidelines of #ForgivingFridays:
- Every day is Friday! Do a post today or anytime this week.
- Free free to be creative – there’s LOTS of space for your expression! Whatever inspire forgiving inside you.
- Tag your post with #ForgivingFridays (here’s a great WordPress article about tagging posts)
- Create a pingback link to this post. This way, I can create a post showing all of the submissions over the week.
- Have fun creating your own form of forgiving, of loving YOU!!
ps – Here’s a quote that for me inspires forgiveness …
The heart knows the truth, and it is through the heart
that we perceive Spirit. When the spiritual heart is open,
then the spiritual eye is opened. Then love flows back and forth,
and the Soul is awakened to its glory. You are in paradise even
though you live in this physical world.
The physical body will still express emotional and
mental qualities, but your energies, your direction,
and your upliftment come from the Soul.
And that, Beloved, is a beautiful place to live.
-John-Roger, Living Love from the Spiritual Heart
