Forgiveness of Self and Other

Forgiveness of self and other has been and is so important to me. You may understand why if I tell you a little of my story:

When I got ill, I did not have the help I needed to rest and recover. I had to go against the advice to rest in order to continue to look after myself. I got more and more ill.

ACIM quote forgiveness

I ended up living severely disabled with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, bedbound for 14 years. I felt that my deterioration was unnecessary and I felt hurt that no one stepped forward to ensure that I got enough to eat.

I also felt guilty for feeling hurt and for having an illness!

I developed the simple yet powerful forgiveness exercises of the release which you can read about in my FREE ebook - Releasing Judgment.)

As we learn to be willing to forgive each challenge, instead of shutting down in pain or self condemnation, we keep our heart open.

We meet the challenges of life with less fear and increasing confidence.

The bumps of life become an unending stream of guidance.

Our lives go in the direction of becoming richer, bigger and more joyful.

This summary page links to a selection of articles on this website which offer advice on forgiving. Please follow those which call to you.

I ask you to join me in seeing yourself and all who read this as feeling soothed, restored and at peace,

With my love, Katherine
