The Forgiveness Exercise

By

Much like how a nice warm shower cleans your body, meditation cleanses your mind and soul. Meditation removes all the negative tension so you end up feeling recharged, focused, calm, and stress-free. And much like how the weather, the road, and our daily tasks can make us dirty, exposure to negative charges from our day to day life can make us feel stressed, agitated, and distracted.

Negative charges are negative emotions that stick with you after an encounter with someone or something. It could be a misunderstanding with a co-worker or an argument with your partner, or even a stranger who bumped you while walking, also what you hear, see and read. And just like a coffee stain in your clothes, negative charges can stick with you for a really long time. It can spoil your day, even your whole week. You can’t seem to do anything right. You are easily distracted and annoyed. It’s almost everything is extremely messed up and you can’t let your inner brilliance shine. How can you ‘remove this stain’?

Forgiveness!!

According to Dr. Michael Barry, a pastor and author of the book The Forgiveness Project, "Harboring these negative emotions, this anger and hatred, creates a state of chronic anxiety." He added that chronic anxiety very predictably produces excess adrenaline and cortisol, which deplete the production of natural killer cells which is your body’s foot soldier in the fight against disease. So how do you practice forgiveness?  Here are the steps.

  1. The first step is to visualize the source and scenario of your negative charge. Who gave you this negative charge? Try to build a clear and detailed image and replay the entire moment in your mind. Did you argue with your partner? Were you walking towards work?
  2. Next, try to fill your mind with positivity. (I hope you still remember how to do it.) This will help you calm down and ward off all negative emotions you felt earlier.
  3. Finally, visualize a scenario where you are with the source of your negative charge. Then imagine him or her asking for forgiveness and you accepting it. This may seem awkward but once you have received the apology you are looking for, your body chemistry and mindset will go back to its original state: focused, calm, and stress-free.
  4. If that’s too hard or too strange for you, try imagining yourself unaffected by the person or situation, you’re totally chilled and in a gracious confident way. Wish them well or just smile at the situation.

The process may seem to be hard at first. But with constant practice and help from listening to cutting-edge binaural brainwave entrainment frequencies in the alpha range, this task will be easier.
