May 20th, Monday Minute
The past two weeks we’ve uncovered how we’re unconsciously limiting our greatness and learned to look beyond the evidence around us so we’re not limited to our current experience.
One of the greatest ways I’ve found I limit myself is through judgment. When I’m judging others and feeling resentful, I know I’m limiting what’s possible for me. When I do this I become closed, restrict my energy and put a barrier up around myself. This is how it works for all of us.
One of the quickest and easiest ways I’ve learned to remove the barrier is through forgiveness, both forgiveness of myself and others. Carrying grudges does nothing but hurt us.
Here’s a quick prayer I say silently whenever someone does something I don’t like or I do something I wish I could take back.
“[insert name of other person here] I forgive you. Please forgive me. Let’s both forgive each other.”
This is extremely effective because there are always things others have done and things we have done that could use some forgiving. So, regardless of whether it was the other person or me who needs forgiving in the moment, by saying this prayer, I get to forgive that person and myself for anything that’s ever transpired between us.
Forgiveness is incredibly freeing and effective at removing limitations!
This week, let’s all say this silent prayer whenever someone cuts us off, is rude, is mean, is short tempered, and is downright miserable. Let’s also remember to say it when we do something we would not want filmed on Candid Camera (I’m dating myself) or on You Tube.
I’d love to hear how it goes for you.
