Forgiveness and the Freedom of Letting go

Sorry I haven't blogged in a while, but life keeps throwing me curve balls. I am learning to catch them or duck, but the injuries, frankly, have been deep.

Today, in an effort to heal, I offer this wonderful video. I have said for a long time that "Forgiveness is not a reward that we give to the person who harmed us...it is for our own healing". Holding on to hurt feelings only hurts us. The person who harmed us, could often times care less, but if we release our hurt feeling and forgive, we take their power to harm us away.

Just pop down the page and turn off my site music, before you run this little gem....but DO run it. It is very healing.

Namaste

Bettina

I made a link to your beautiful song Choose Joy on my blog today -- hope that's okay with you.
What a gorgeous gift it is, I will be playing often to support the right choices in this journey we are on.
big blessings to you, my dear.

I'm so glad you like my song, "I Choose Love" (and peace and joy) :) I'm pleased and proud to share it, as I believe it can be a powerful affirmation. I know it helps me, through the rough patches.

(((hugs)))
