An important aspect of healing is Forgiveness.
Forgiveness is to let go of that which no longer serves us; freeing us to heal and to move forward with ease and lightness.
Why we should forgive, even when the 'other' doesn't 'deserve' to be forgiven. Forgiveness is such a powerful tool in self-liberation, and has nothing to do with the other person. Ask yourself, what do you really want? If it is peace, then forgiveness offers you that; if it is freedom, then forgiveness offers you that too.
In forgiving you are not condoning what was done to you in the past, rather you are liberating yourself from the bondage of the past. Why stay stuck in pain and suffering when forgiveness (letting go of.) is within your power in this moment?

Forgiveness - Is to reach the point of knowing that everything always was, is, and will be, in perfect balance, and that there is nothing therefore to forgive.
When you accept the positive gift from every perceived negative in your life, and when gratitude for each and every occurrence is the predominant thought and emotion you give your attention to and open your heart to – then you have reached the point of forgiveness. You will recognise this point as a place of Gratitude, which will well up in your heart and wash away all your past judgments and attachments that have prevented you from experiencing peace.
Forgiveness opens the heart and allows love to flow.

“Through forgiveness, which essentially means recognizing the insubstantiality of the past and allowing the present moment to be as it is, the miracle of transformation happens not only within but also without… you dissolve discord, heal pain, dispel unconsciousness — without doing anything — simply by being and holding that frequency of intense presence.” Eckhart Tolle – Power of Now
Forgiveness of yourself and of others, brings you freedom.

Prayer for forgiveness:
Please forgive me:
I ask my Higher Awareness for my misperception to be absolved. I ask for all that is not real to be cleansed from my limited mind-perception. I recognize and accept in this moment that this cannot be accomplished from the level of my limited egoic self, and call on a power mightier than self to help me with this. Please forgive my mind-made-Karma. Please cleanse my awareness through Your power of Presence and forgiveness. Please forgive me.
It is done – Thank you
