The Shamanic Healing Power of Forgiving the Unforgivable
The journey to living a more fulfilling life begins with forgiving the unforgivable.
Whatever unforgivable things we have done to ourselves, done to others or have had done to us!
It is about clearing the slate and experiencing a NEW beginning
from a place of forgiveness, kindness and love.
This is not easy or a quick fix as it requires willingness to see where we may have been unfair to ourselves or others, mean to ourselves or others, unforgiving towards ourselves or others. It may also include vengeance and retaliation for a perceived wrong we have been at the affect of or have perpetrated. We may also find we have been guilty of blaming, shaming, and complaining along with any number of other ways we might have harmed ourselves or others.

That is why a powerful shamanic practice is to fully commit to self forgiveness for any part you may have played in creating pain for yourself or others.
My father did NOT want children. I was the first born so I was blamed for ruining his life. He was a master at shaming me – saying I ruined his life followed by I was lazy, good for nothing and would never amount to anything. For years I did not realize how deeply all that had gone into my belief system, affecting how I experienced my life. Once I was aware of it I began the long process of forgiving myself for seemingly having caused my father so much pain.
