Here is a guided meditation on forgiving others and ourselves, too.
Lie on your back on a comfortable surface in a warm place; cover yourself with a light blanket if desired. Let your arms rest at your sides, near, but not touching your body; feet resting about a foot apart. Close your eyes.
Begin breathing evenly in and out: breathe in 2 counts; breathe out 2 counts; continue. Do not hold your breath.
After a minute or more of even breathing begin thinking about a situation where you have been hurt. Stay with the thoughts a few moments while you are lying there comfortably and safe.
Next, rest easy for a few moments to balance any remnants of upset, brought up in your body-mind, from thinking about an old hurt. Just let the past remain there with forgiveness in your heart, remembering we all need forgiveness at some time in our lives.
After a few minutes resting and breathing evenly, either sleep or take a deep breath in and out, stretch and get up; energized.
Enjoy the harmonious feelings that flow from forgiving and moving on.
Moving on with forgiveness at heart
Gives us a renewed and fresh start.
