Forgiveness and Healing

Stumbling into Paradise

I made a decision 30 years ago in 1986 that led me down a hard path. I left a career job and ran away from a relationship.

I ended up with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis 26 years ago and like you spent many years in pain and crippling fatigue, but in my case I knew I had brought it on myself and the guilt was compounded.

I too found ACIM, and Qi Gong which along with following the Baha'i teachings and most recently the teaching of Bruno Groening and the Bruno Groening Circle of Friends has brought me after 26 years to a liberation.

One morning recently I woke up, began my morning healing practice, and wrote a letter from start to finish to the man who in 1986 represented my employer and who I had filed a grievance against and he against me before I left my job. I had tried writing to him for years, had several drafts in my journals and on my computer, but could never finish.

Three weeks ago the letter came out. I put in the mail the same morning. It was just over. All of it was my own unforgiveness. At the same time in this period, I am feeling the love of God as a palpable feeling of flow in my body, a mystic fire purifying me, an energy of love that is merciful, blissful and all-loving. I have stumbled into paradise and realize now that it was always there.

Thank you for your confirming site as I too am interfaith in my outlook and have benefited from writings from all faith paths.

Dear Robert,

How lovely to hear your story of forgiveness and healing. I wonder if physical healing has also resulted for you.

In the Bible, there is the story of Jesus saying ‘I forgive you’ in order to bring physical healing to the man lowered through the roof on a stretcher.

There, though, he is inviting the man to receive forgiveness rather than give it.

There is also the suggestion – again in the Bible – that we can ‘cast a mountain into the sea’ but that when we ask for anything (claim or manifest anything) we should forgive anything we have against anyone. People often forget that part! The implication is that a grudge somehow holds us back from receiving God’s love and abundance.

For myself I used my simple technique of Releasing Judgment (free ebook available) every day when I couldn’t speak or feed myself. It didn’t result in physical healing, but I don’t think I would be here without it. My mind got so distressed by things people said or did. I found it so hard not to be able to reply. And I quite literally couldn’t stand up for myself.
Releasing Judgment brought me back to peace and gave moments of deliciousness spaciousness into which God could squeeze :-) to give me awareness of His/Her love. Oh yes, and spaciousness to receive words of poems that sustained me.

Forgiveness brings healing on many or all levels I guess. It can be emotional, physical, mental or spiritual healing.

Thank you for reminding us this morning of the energy of Love and paradise.

My love to you, Katherine
