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:

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
I also felt guilty for feeling hurt and guilty for having an illness!
I developed the simple yet powerful forgiveness exercises of
which you can read about in my FREE ebook - Releasing Judgment.)

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