God is the Love in which I forgive

When the student is ready the teacher appears. Forgiveness is the linchpin of all my change work (transformational imagination, seminars, coaching and hypnotherapy private practice. I do plenty and plenty of forgiveness myself. However, as I mentioned yesterday I have a few challenges today which will cost me some time and they were not caused by me. So I have to forgive the people who were the immediate cause of the situation.

Now I do understand that I’m in the mind of God and so are you and in effect everything is caused by myself and all is good. However, this is an intellectual understanding and I still need to do actual forgiving in order to clear myself and move on sending love to my brother.

So this is the perfect exercise for today.

From the ACIM workbook:

God does not forgive because He has never condemned. [] As you condemn only yourself, so do you forgive only yourself…

Fear condemns and love forgives

Today’s exercises require at least three full five-minute practice periods, and as many shorter ones as possible. Begin the longer practice periods by repeating today’s idea to yourself, as usual. Close your eyes as you do so, and spend a minute or two in searching your mind for those whom you have not forgiven. It does not matter “how much” you have not forgiven them. You have forgiven them entirely or not at all.

It is a safe rule that anyone you do not like is a suitable subject. Mention each one by name, and say:

God is the Love in which I forgive you, [name].

The purpose of the first phase of today’s practice periods is to put you in a position to forgive yourself. After you have applied the idea to all those who have come to mind, tell yourself:

God is the Love in which I forgive myself.

Then devote the remainder of the practice period to adding related ideas such as:

God is the Love with which I love myself.
God is the Love in which I am blessed.

The form of the application may vary considerably, but the central idea should not be lost sight of. You might say, for example:

I cannot be guilty because I am a Son of God.
I have already been forgiven.
No fear is possible in a mind beloved of God.
There is no need to attack because love has forgiven me.

The practice period should end, however, with a repetition of today’s idea as originally stated.

Basically I spent about an hour in bed first thing in the morning (after reading the exercise of the day) repeating either God is the Love in which I forgive or mainly God is the Love in which I forgive and then I would name a person or event or myself. This lasted about an hour. There would be times that I would lose consciousness (sleeping I assume) but as soon as I would wake up I would return to the forgiving and sending unconditional love to all concerned including myself.

Later on I’ll listen to my “Ultra Forgiveness” and “Aligning Yourself With The Universe” CDs. This last CD allows you to send unconditional love to the whole universe and then receive it back.

Throughout the day I keep repeating the thought for today. In fact for the last few days I have been doing that and sometimes previous day’s thoughts come into my mind and I repeat those.

First task of the day done. I first forgave the company I had an issue with and then sent them a third email. I had no reply from the first two. I’m getting a refund from one of the companies and now I need to first transfer my hosting company. This takes a long time and so I have to do a little bit of forgiving on this.

An hour later and still stuck on doing the very first transfer.

Two hours later still stuck on something which should take five minutes. So back to the drawing board to do something totally new. In the meanwhile I might as well do the second long exercise of the day –

  • I will do the exercise later on. After two three minutes of forgiving all concerned and forgiving myself for wasting my time, and just covering everyone in the world with a pink light of unconditional love, suddenly I opened my eyes. I knew the solution. It’s like a tiny miracle. Now the skeptic scientist in me analyzes the situation and of course deep down I always knew the solution but the fear (lack of love) lead to worry and anxiety and I could not access the knowledge deep within me.
    So for me that is a miracle. I forgave and sent our love and compassion for all including of course myself and this allowed the solution to come out.
    I’m going to go for a little walking meditation where I’ll continue with today’s affirmation.
  • Since a large file is uploading to the new host I have time to do the second meditation of the day –
    I sent forgiveness, and love to others as well as myself. At times the outside world and thoughts disappeared but in time I knew it was time to open my eyes.
    I feel very good and now to next phase of the operation. This is going way slower than I expected but that gives me more time to forgive.

It is now night time and I’m about to do the last long meditation –

  • it was good meditation. I also forgave and sent unconditional love to my eyes which need glasses and my throat which is sore. By the way thanks to the forgiving I was doing I decided to forgive the hosting company as it would have cost me even more time. I recovered three lost blogs (I had to move those to another host) but I did not waste more time by not forgiving.
