Are you having trouble reconciling past experiences in which you either behaved poorly or others behaved poorly toward you? Are you weighed down with so much guilt, regret, anger or emotional pain that you’re having trouble moving on with your life? If so, this simple exercise may help.
Close your eyes and replay the incident in your mind, except this time watch it as an objective observer. While you watch events unfolding, bathe everyone involved as well as the situation itself in love, as if you were a parent sending unconditional love to your child.
If sending love to someone or something so hurtful is difficult for you, know this: You cannot release a hurt until you send love to the source of that hurt.
Do this exercise as often as possible, surrounding the incident in love instead of fear, and you cannot help but reduce the emotional charge associated with it. Remember, anything other than love is fear. Fear brings suffering. Love brings peace.
And I saw a river over which every soul must pass to reach the kingdom of heaven and the name of that river was “suffering.” And then I saw a boat which carries souls across the river and the name of that boat was “love.”
