Forgiveness is a great work. The mere act has added so much value to life. The work is simple. The decision is mystified. That’s what makes forgiveness so tough. No one really has a clear definition of it. Not a clear good one any way.
As the Queen of Forgiveness, I define forgiveness as the act of pure trust in God. Whoooo, now how do we do that? We learn different ways to use our “thinker” (brain) to let go of pain, hurt and disgust and reclaim the peace that has always been ours.
3 Minutes of Meditation
Often when we think of meditation, we think of a monk in a monastery, legs folded, chanting or being silent for the next 16 hours. I would never meditate if the aforementioned was the case. However; I meditate regularly. Many times using the 3 Minute Method.
1. Take 3 exaggerated deep breaths.
Breathe in 4 counts
Breathe out 4 counts
2. Close your eyes (for no other reason, but it helps you to relax).
3. Tense up every muscle in your body.
Hunch your shoulders
Ball up your fists.
Draw your arms up to your chest.
Squeeze your arms into your sides.
Ball up your toes.
Draw up your legs.
…and squeeze Le derrière (butt cheeks –vulgar, I know) together.
You Should Look Something Like This:
Okay, okay, just kidding around. But you get the idea. Funch up!
4. Hold the tension for about 30 seconds and then let go.
This will help your body to feel more relaxed.
Sit or lay down if you can.
5. Take one more deep breath, then breathe normally.
6. Keep your eyes clothes and allow your thoughts to roam.
Do not try to control or stop your thoughts.
Just let them be.
Just be present.
Watch your thoughts.
You are allowed to move if you feel fidgety.
That’s it. Sit there or lay there for another couple minutes and you’re done! You’ve meditated and relaxed. Now, that’s forgiveness baby!
