I truly believe in the power of positive thinking, visualisation and using affirmations (repeating of positive words and phrases) to create the spectacular life we all deserve. John and I practice this daily and we can testify to the amazing power of a positive attitude. A website that’s been a great source of teaching for us is The Mind Unleashed. Their article of 6 March 2014 by Josh Richardson about ten life changing affirmation is so inspiring that I just have to share it with you.
I’ll be sharing one affirmation a day with you for ten days. I sincerely hope you will give these affirmations a go and experience how it will change your life.
“To forgive and peacefully detach doesn’t mean you forget what they did, but you are at peace with what they did and the lessons served. Your strength to forgive is what allows you to move forward and your reaction to any experience is independent of what others think of you. You can forgive one thousand people and even if none of them forgive you, there will always be a sense of peace and freedom within you that they will never have until they share that sentiment. Your power to forgive them also instantly changes how they react to you.” – The Mind Unleashed
This is one of the best sayings ever. If we do not learn how to forgive and to detach we will be the one that will walk around with a heavy heart. I had to do this with to family members and even though it was a difficult choice I have found that I have become a better person for it and my heart is now filled with love and joy.
Thank you for sharing such powerful words of forgiveness!
I totally agree with you. We are responsible for our own happiness, and if that means letting go of something bad that someone has done to you, then we can only benefit from doing so. I’m glad you have done this already. Blessings!
That is “TWO” family members – SMH!
