The Power of Forgiveness – Part II
In part I of this article, we identified why forgiveness is so powerful (because of its strong correlation with alpha wave production) and what the first step was in learning to forgive. The first step – which can be read about in more detail on our blog – is to focus on anger. While it may sound unpleasant, you must feel and attempt to relive all instances of anger or hurt that you have experienced in the past. You should close your eyes and focus on those feelings.
Taking the Next Step
The next step to forgiveness is described as “forgive into love.” Now, visualize the person in front of you who caused your hurt or anger, and feel compassion for them. As you begin to feel compassion – and perhaps even empathy – ask yourself some crucial questions about the experience. What did you learn? How did you grow?
Now, think about what things the person who hurt you might have experienced to contributed to them acting the way that they did. We all know that those who hurt others tend to be hurt themselves – did something happen to the person who hurt you? Start to forgive the person. Remember, forgiving them does not mean asking for them to apologize.

- Not sure what I was going for with this one but I do know that having my picture taken isn’t always something I am super comfortable with. I completely respect those who do love having their photo taken. . So the story I’m going with for this is that there are many things in our world that needs looking in a different direction. Sometimes it’s more looking up or ahead but right now everyone seems to be looking down and away. . Look at people around you. Notice what’s happening and smile and don’t be like everyone else.
