With all that is going on in the world these days, many people are finding their life to be ever more stressful and challenging.  It is for this reason that I encourage you to give yourself a very special gift, the greatest gift of all, the gift of forgiveness. 

At all times, and even more so now, your conscious mind operates from a place of fear and often communicates with you in a way that makes you feel less than less than you truly are.

The conscious mind also look for evidence in your life to prove its point, and it never seems to have any difficulty in finding and informing you of this evidence.  All too often this evidence seems overwhelming, and so you accept it as reality.

The reality however, is that you are NOT your conscious mind and your are NOT what your conscious mind tells you that you are.  So no matter what may have occurred in your life this past year, or any year through out your life, I want you to know that that event, or experience does not define who you are.

I encourage you to get out of your head for a moment, and connect with that place that knows who you truly are.  Connect to your heart where there is only unconditional love for you and everything that you are. 

If you have difficulty experiencing love for your self, then visualize or imagine anything that you love, a child, a pet, a spouse, etc.   Once you have connected to that place of unconditional love, make the choice and give the gift of forgiveness to yourself.

With your hand on your heart say "I forgive myself for judging myself as ________"  Fill in the blank with whatever you have been judging that "you should have done better", or "you should have doene differently".

I would also encourage you to state the truth about yourself after you have forgiven yourself.  You might state something like "The truth is I am a Divine Being having a human experience who is always doing the best I can in every situation.  If I could have done better I would have".

If you choose, you can take the gift of forgiveness one step further, and choose to forgive someone else who you have judged as having acted in a way other than"they should have". 

Since we are all one, and we come from the same source, what is true for one is true for all.  The truth is when we withold forgiveness from another, we suffer needlessly, and when we choose to forgive, we uplift not only that person, but also oursleves.

We can all benefit from this kind of upliftment.  Give the gift of forgiveness first to yourself, and then share it with everyone you can.  You will experience an incredible release of negative energy, and in its place will rush in love, peace, joy, and well being.

What a wonderful way to prepare to move forward toward the life you deserve and desire.
