When I’m working with a client, they obviously know prior to their visit or phone consult, this gal is gonna tell me I have to stop eating all my favorite foods, but where I really shock um…… is when I also tell them they need to get rid of their ‘STINKIN THINKIN”…IN ORDER TO FULLY DETOX A BODY… (caps for emphasis)…(Im not shouting),,,, you also have to detoxify your mental aspect by offering forgiveness and being, feeling and expressing thankfulness!
Folks there is not one single person on this planet who has not has some mean, hurtful, painful, nasty experience ever happen to them. Seriously, we all have… yet when we harbor those memories and frequently think on them and talk about them, just those aspects brings negative emotions, which definately affects ones health.
ever heard the saying “I’m tied up in knots, or my stomach is in knots?” well. there ya go, then there is holding that anger against someone who hurt you in some way whether physically or emotionally. anger stifles the liver and that organ has a huge “to do list” every day!!!!
When we have been wronged our natural emotional instinct is we want our hurt justified in some way.. Forgiveness offers YOU freedom it does not make the wrong doer right, or send the message I’m a whipping post hit me again.. Many find it hard to forgive they may even say with words I forgive you yet they are still expecting some sort of something, an apology, or for them to suffer for what they did. But when you choose to forgive, you are acknowledging that the “debt” incurred and you are releasing it, they owe you nothing, however, that doesn’t mean that persons wrong is relieved possibly legally or with God. We can’t cancel someone else’s sins, remember seeking revenge keep YOU in bondage as you dwell on it until you receive some sort of satisfaction. Keeps it fresh always in your mind and heart. LET IT GO…Romans 12:29 Vengeance is Mine, I will repay says the Lord…. Psalm 10:14 But you, O God, do see the hurt, the grief and the pain, and YOU will call that person into judgment and avenge the helpless and the victim.
This is a huge one for each and every person.. including myself.. sometimes I have to offer that forgiveness daily… but it’s either that or remain a slave to ones emotions, and then the erosion of the daily joy begins to slide, and keeps many from living and experiencing the happiness/joy of living in each moment vs. the past….
