For a full understanding of what my guided relaxamations are make sure you catch up with my episode called Relaxamations to relax and energise when living with heart disease, you can read or listen to me explaining it. In a nutshell, though, relaxamations are a blend of all of the best bits of meditation, guided relaxation, mindfulness and positive affirmations.

Forgiveness is a gift I give to myself

Imagine this: If you had $86,400 in an account and someone stole $10 from you, would you be upset and throw all of the remaining $86,390 away in hopes of getting back at the person who took your $10? Or move on and live? Right, move on and live. See, we have 86,400 seconds each day. Don’t let someone’s negative 10 seconds ruin the remaining 86,390. Don’t sweat the small stuff. Life is bigger than that. (unknown)

  • Carrying resentment is holding on to negative energy. 
  • It is also a bit like taking poison and hoping the other person will die.
  • Forgiving the other doesn’t mean they were right or you were wrong.
  • It empowers you and disempowers them.
  • You can also forgive yourself.

Click play  to hear the podcast episode and read on for the affirmations and self-reflection questions.


Your affirmations are:

  1. Forgiveness is a gift I give to myself. 
  2. Forgiveness is a way of showing strength in myself.
  3. By forgiving others, I become free of the past.

Say your affirmations 5 times each as a set. Repeat your set of affirmations at least once a day. The more you use them the bigger the impact. Add them to a habit that you do every day.  While cleaning your teeth, driving, running, walking your dog, washing the dishes, when you first wake up or the last thing at night.

Your self-reflection questions are:

  1. Whom do I need to forgive?
  2. What would I gain by forgiving that person?
  3. Can I let go of my negative feelings about that person?

Use these reflection questions to delve a little deeper and get to know yourself better. You can use them as prompts for journaling, during meditation or just give yourself a few moments of time to consider.
