Although it is not what we want, when we are upset we are holding onto our anger, guilt and fear.

Forgiveness exercises allow us to release judgment.

We let go and let God.

God turns us around and we float up to the surface to breathe in God's love.

We remember the Love we know and are.

Releasing Judgment – Forgiveness Exercises For Self Acceptance and Inner Peace

When I got ill, I felt fear and anger about many things. I knew if I was to find the strength to stay alive, and hopefully recover, I needed to find a way to be at peace.

And so, I developed and lived a practice of forgiveness and acceptance, both of myself and others.

We can apply the “release statements” to every difficulty in our life. The forgiveness it brings allows us to serve God, to serve the world and to move towards greater joy in our lives.

The free e-book includes the following information which does NOT appear on this site.

  1. A Forgiveness Exercise Developed At A Time When I Felt Much Anger
  2. How Do We Form The Release?
  3. How Do We Apply The Release?

  6. How Do We Know What To Release Judgment On Next? Loosening The Knot
  7. Releasing Judgment Helps Us Choose The Advice That Is Right For Us
  8. Releasing Judgment Allows Us To Grow From A Place Of Acceptance And Freedom, Instead of One of Trying To Be Good Enough

Little by little, we allow God to release us from fear, from anger and from guilt. We are blessed and we are a blessing.

What Is The Release?

The release statements begin "It's OK to..."

The release is an exercise for releasing judgment. This simple and powerful forgiveness exercise can be applied in all situations to bring about greater peace of mind, self love, self acceptance, and love and acceptance of others.

I developed this practice back in 1993. I started doing forgiveness exercises in any situation in which I noticed I was judging myself or another. We can learn how to release judgment.

Is The Release A Moral Judgment?

Whilst it sounds like a moral judgment, "It's OK to..." is not intended as such.

Instead it asks us to consider that no behaviour can separate us from God's love. It encourages us to follow God's example by allowing God’s love to flow through us, both to ourselves and to the other.

On reading or saying the release, we relax in a place of self acceptance; we relax in the practice of accepting another.

What Does Forgiveness Mean As Taught In A Course In Miracles?

The practice of the release is compatible with lessons in forgiveness as taught in A Course In Miracles(ACIM). Actually, the whole of ACIM is a lesson in forgiveness!

The use of the release is also very much compatible with forgiveness as taught in the Bible and learned by Christians.

A Course In Miracles teaches that this world is a dream. Since God is all powerful, we do not have the power to create our own separate kingdom of sorrow, pain and separation. This world seems real to us, but reality remains perfect as God created it.

Forgiveness exercises put us in touch with Reality: our Innocence and the Innocence of the other. (Please note this is not about seeing a behaviour as innocent. It is about holding to the belief that we are more than our behaviour. We exist as a reality beyond the body and beyond our behaviour.)

Why Do We Forgive?
What Are The Benefits of Using Forgiveness Exercises?

When we practise forgiveness, we first experience peace in the midst of a difficulty.

As we continue, the seeming evidence for 'our sins' or 'their sins' eventually dissolves, and our world shifts a little more in the direction of heaven.

The practice of forgiveness is our purpose in being here.
We can look on each of our challenges and irritations as assignments. We stand in the darkness and yet we choose to believe in and call on the Light. When we give God access to transform our minds, we are giving God access to transform the world.

Prayer for forgiveness

But I Can't Just Let Them Get Away With It!

Releasing judgment may seem counter-intuitive. We may feel a resistance to doing so, as if we are condoning a hurtful behaviour and thus weakening our ability to prevent such behaviour in ourselves or another.

However, the opposite is true. Once we release judgment we are no longer blinded by our emotions and our pain. We gain an ability to accept, see and therefore judge the behaviour more clearly.
