Step Three is Creating a New Story
This is John Culbertson from MysticJohn Culbertson.com and this is your mini spiritual lesson for September 27th, 2018.
Our topic this week is forgiveness.
Today’s forgiveness tip: Write a New Story
Step three in your forgiveness work is to craft a new story.
You’ve told the story from your perspective, you’ve worked at understanding and seeing it from a different perspective, now you need to create a new story altogether.
Though there are many ways to go about this step, I’ll share with you the one single most effective method that has always worked for me and the majority of the clients I have worked with.
Ask the question: What were our souls learning?
Ask yourself that question and write down your answer. If you’re working with someone ask them the same question and listen to their response.
Every event that occurs in the physical world has the ultimate goal of moving human consciousness to a better place. This is not to say that these events should occur. It’s also not saying that people should not experience consequences for certain behaviors. It is to say that there is always something going on above and beyond what we in our human ego state can understand.
Once you’ve worked through that question follow it up by asking: With the knowledge that I now have, who do I want to be as a result of this/these events?
Again, writing this down can help you process, but it will only be when you verbalize it then you’ll begin to accept that this is who you’ve now become and you’ll truly start to feel as though you have access to your inner power.
Our prayer for this week is as follows:
I am forgiveness, now and always. I know God is forgiving and I know that God and I are one. I feel the power of forgiveness flowing through me and all around me. I feel myself going deeper and deeper into my emotions and accepting them as they are. I feel myself releasing old hurt, pain, and anger. I feel myself accepting that I am not wrong to feel the way I feel. I feel myself rejoicing in the fact I am overcoming any and all hurts from the past. I know forgiveness is for me and not for another. While I shall not allow myself to be hurt again, I can accept that my soul has grown through my life experiences and as such I’ve no need to hold onto the person, event, or circumstances that have damaged me. I release this now and as I do I say: So it is, so it is, so it is. I believe. So it is.
