Forgiveness is not an occasional act; it is a permanent attitude. ~ Martin Luther King
In order to let release the ideas that keep popping up and sabotaging us from pursuing our passion, first we have to identify that negative core belief. I suspect you may have been wrestling with this core belief since this series began. My negative core belief is worrying about what others think instead of focusing on what my heart tells me is important.
The next step is to create denial and release/forgiveness statements around those negative core beliefs – as well as an affirmation that proclaims the Truth of who I am. Here are mine:
Denial: I deny the power of putting others’ opinion of my creativity in front of my joy of living a creative life.
Forgiveness/Release: I release the habit of looking to others for validation, rather than looking within and living out of the joy of being my creative self. I forgive myself for believing what I thought others believed about my creative expressions was more important than living an authentically creative life.
Affirmation: I am a creative being, and I accept all the joy and fulfillment that comes from living my creativity to the fullest.
What belief about myself and/or others can I deny, release/forgive, affirm in order to experience the shift I desire in finding and pursuing my passion?
Using the finger labyrinth at the end of this post or a walking labyrinth if you have one available to you:
- Repeat over and over again either the denial or the forgiveness statement as you walk toward the center.
- In the center, give yourself praise and blessings for being willing to do this hard work.
- As you “walk” toward the outside of the labyrinth, say the affirmation.
He that cannot forgive others breaks the bridge over which he must pass himself; for every man has need to be forgiven. ~ Thomas Fuller
