Forgiving Yourself.


When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily.


Dear Deepak, How do you learn to let go and forgive yourself for hurting someone you love and have pushed away? I have tried meditation to ease my mind, but it only works temporarily. I am not sure if I am doing it wrong, but I can’t seem to forgive myself, and my mind would always replay events of the person I hurt.



Meditation isn’t an effective tool for forgiveness—especially on its own. You may find it more helpful to begin with more conventional self-acceptance exercises. Recognize that although your behavior may not be perfect and you may have hurt inadvertently hurt someone you love, but that doesn’t mean you are a bad person. You still deserve forgiveness.

We all do the best we can with the limited understanding and circumstances we are in at any given time. But none of that reflects on our essential goodness as a human being. Get in touch with that core Being of love, compassion and truth that is your true nature, and you will experience self-forgiveness and complete absolution.
