Excerpt from Gratitude + Forgiveness x (LOVE) = Happiness, by Aimee Mosco and Donald L. Ferguson, page 57
“Forgiveness has the power to rewire your energy field, remove obstacles and inspire you to live from a place of love. Allowing yourself to have gratitude for all of your experiences opens you up to the possibilities of forgiveness. Gratitude paves the road to forgiveness and forgiveness allows love to flow. Love attracts happiness and draws it into your life. If you are ready to take measures needed to create happiness in your life, you must begin with the basics. Gratitude, forgiveness and love….”
Most of us have had at least one relationship in life that has induced trauma. The traumas we endure throughout life color our perceptions and often times lead us away from the light of happiness and love. They inspire us to fear, which limits the ability to recognize opportunities that hold the power to manifest great joy.
The energy of forgiveness is so potent that it can heal the wounds and scars that have materialized from relationship trauma. Though it only works as a remedy if it is authentic and comes from deep inside your heart. That’s the hard part. Anyone can grant forgiveness with words, but if the words are not true, they do not hold the magic. The magic must come before the words and be birthed from the heart.
You may be asking yourself at this point how it is possible to turn the tides of relationship trauma, particularly if the trauma represents patterning in your life. Make no mistake, it takes some work, but if you are committed, for your own sake, to express forgiveness from the depths of your heart, know that you have a partner in (the energy of) gratitude.
If you can shift your focus and acknowledge that your soul guides you silently to and through the events of your life, for the express purpose of learning, the events of your life all become opportunities for growth. Every single thing that happens to you serves your growth in some way. The more you contemplate this and identify how you grew from relationships, the more natural it will feel to have gratitude for what they gave to you, even if it hurt in the moment.
If you can first hold hands with gratitude and allow it to preside over your thoughts and emotions, true forgiveness will ultimately flow like rapids from the core of your heart where love reigns supreme.
