Some of us are participating in the 11 Days of Forgiveness leading up to the International Day of Peace on September 21st.

What does forgiveness have to do with peace? If you review your own life, you know that when we are holding something against another, those thoughts become like a hamster wheel of frustration and resentment in our minds, and inner peace is lost.

Through forgiveness, we can make a difference in our world, one mind at a time!

One of the most important people to forgive is ourselves. You might be saying “Wait a minute – I didn’t cause ________ to happen in my life (my boss to fire me, my husband/wife leaving for another, etc.) No, you might not have caused it, however, the study of the Science of Mind helps us to realize that something in our consciousness attracted our part in the experience. So maybe we need to forgive ourselves for making the choices we did – and finally let go.

Going even deeper -- I attended a workshop years ago where I heard the facilitator say that there are two bottom line beliefs that most of us still carry: ‘we are not enough’ or ‘we are unloveable.’ Both of these are lies that we need to forgive ourselves for believing in.

To help us do this, I share a wonderful 9 minute video meditation that came to me this morning – give yourself this gift.

You are Magnificent!! You are an incarnation of an infinitely intelligent, unconditionally loving, powerful Presence! This is your Truth!

Breathe deeply and believe!


There is only One Life, that Life is God’s Life, and that life is my life right here, right now. I accept this as my Truth and as the Truth for everyone.

I declare I am now opening up in deep surrender to the Powerful Presence within me. I release all my attachments to the events of my past that kept me in bondage. I breathe deeply and celebrate my freedom!

In this freedom I make new choices. I let Infinite Intelligence guide me and Love support me in my decisions for my life. I now have unlimited happiness on all levels of my being. I know who I am – Spirit in form, and this is good, very good.

With a grateful heart, I let go and let God doing Its perfect work in, though and as me. And so it is.
