Forgiveness transforms! People consistently become more loving, friendly and compassionate after deep forgiveness. Emotional pain is released. Depression departs. Healing can even occur in the body. Joy returns. Laughter is found again.
It seems the mind transforms through forgiving. I have found this to be consistently true in all of my years of work in forgiveness, doing individual and group Forgiveness Therapy and trainings, and from my own life experience.
How forgiveness transforms the mind’s functioning is open to speculation, yet we can easily observable fact that it does. We can observe that when the bitterness, grudges, and resentments of the past are let go, life energy becomes much more available to that person. How much life energy depends on how much energy has been put into holding resentments and bitterness.
People who say they have done complete forgiveness of all the people and situations in their life, live a life with much joy. They get sick less often and people are friendlier to them than before their forgiveness transformation. Some say they don’t get sick anymore as long as they hold no upsets with people. While this is not an easy state of mind to maintain, the payoff is great.
Some have deeply religious experiences after their forgiveness and reconciliation experience and say they have a deeper understanding of life and love. Their relationships with people, in general, get better, and their friendships deepen. They are less stressed and angered by daily personal and world events. They find it easier to get over upsets. Forgiveness has tremendous potential.
