Ask Deepak - How Does Forgiveness Heal

Category:  Ask Deepak Videos

When you have a resentment, grievance , feeling hostility towards anyone or if you have any of the other toxic emotions like guilt, shame, depression or fear , these emotions release hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol.
When you have a resentment, grievance , feeling hostility towards anyone or if you have any of the other toxic emotions like guilt, shame, depression or fear , these emotions release hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol. These hormones have effects on the cardiovascular and on the immune systems. You become immune compromised, even your platelets get jittery with the high levels of adrenaline and they start the clothing cascade leading to cardiovascular illnesses, heart attacks and stroke. On the other hand when you forgive and let go the burden of judgment, everything settles down and your body starts to return to homeostasis, which is self regulation and self healing.

  • The journey in your life is to learn to surrender to it and know that you are not the doer but life IS, through you. Forgive yourself and forgive your enemies cause they are also the victims of the fact they believe they are the doer. This is the result of the duality enterng life at a certain stage.... The core self is the unconditional creative force, always bringing solutions to where there are problems and when you grow towards complete surrender (which is a natural process in life), problems will vanish gradually and complete peace is your reward....

  • Where is it you`ve heard about forgiveness the most Deepak Chopra? What was the best story you`ve ever heard about forgiveness? To me, King David asking God to forgive him and then accepting the total acceptance into God`s Work on earth. Or maybe when Christ healed, and the accepting person saw in Him the surety this could happen. Re: his daughter, the Roman Centurion said...You don`t have to come to her bedside, just say the word and she will be healed from here!"

  • Dear Deepak, In listening to your audio books,you Speak of our immune system`s and the importance of keeping our immune sytem (for lack of a better word). Please enlighten me now on those of us who have no spleen. In 2008, my Husband ruptured my spleen and, after emergency surgery the surgeon told me "you literally lost all of your immunities. Every immunization you received as a child are gone. You are comparable to an aids patient but without aids. If you get pnemonia, all anyone could do for you, would be to make you comfortable until you pass." Deepak please explain, please help me to understand where in this big beautiful universe I stand, my soul stands without an immune system upon losing my spleen to domestic violence. Educate me please. (As a side note I was 32 yrs old and was 10 days post partum.)

  • Once you understand the motives behind someone else's wrong doing, you come to the realization that this person is far more wounded than you as the victim :) "Resentment is a poison that damages the vessel in which it is stored", or something like that!

  • Thank you for posting this. I have been dealing with a great deal of anxiety lately and have been "hard on myself" for what seems like every thought and feeling I experience. I need to practice letting go. Understanding why - what this fear does to my physical self - is more motivation for me to make positive changes to my current self talk.

  • Hello Dr. Chopra, my soul is connected to my beloved. I met an Indian vedic astrologer a month and half ago. Since I was confused about my connection with my beloved, I asked him some questions. He hold me in his arms, and put his hand on my chest and repeated some mantras. Now, I am connected to this astrologer. Would you please help me how can I get rid of this connection? Please help. Thanks.

  • There`s so much power in forgiveness. As hard as it may be to do you will find it takes so much pressure off of you because you are choosing not to allow it to dictate your world or the people around you. You are choosing to take back the power that you gave them for disrupting your life.

    Preet Khatri // 2012-07-11 05:34:31 // //
  • Forgiveness releases your negative energy, obsessions, and thoughts out of you and into the universe. You don`t forget. You use it as a learning experience. Hopefully you get the lesson. You look at things differently and hopefully make better choices.

  • We get hurt because we are `hurtable`, meaning the painful words resonated with our values and belief systems about ourselves. The time we get `hurt` is the BEST time to look within, get conscious of the inefficient beliefs we have about ourselves and recycle them. Pain is the stop sign God sent to avoid us destroying ourselves, it is the miracle worker of transformation. Thank you pain for showing me the useless belief system I was feeding within me. I NOW Accept myself fully and compassionately. I Love myself exactly how I Am . ♥

    Light Healing For All // 2012-07-07 18:25:54 // //
  • Hi Deepak Good post. Sometimes people can interpret silence as anger or resentment, when in fact it is just a form of avoidance and removing oneself from a situation which is perceptually at odds with one`s own integrity and feeling of wellbeing. I know who I am now and although I have great compassion, will not be crushed. By anyone. And that is not anger, it is every person`s right.

  • I have so many things to say on the subjects of forgiveness and revenge but cannot go into it now. My most important point on both is that depression is a very sour by-product of both and can, if you allow it to, it can kill you. You can become very ill, not just emotionally and mentally, but physically as well. I know. That is all I can say on the subject for now. Please take care, learn to forgive anything and please don`t harbour revenge for anyone. This will only continue to hurt you.

  • There will be no forgiveness for you, not mercy Mr. Chopra, I warned you from the very beginning, people don`t know what you do with the power of meditation, but I do, every intent of harm you tried will be paid.

    Jose E. Ortega // 2012-07-07 17:55:39 // //
  • @ Jenny...forgiveness is a gift you give to yourself. Revenge = self-destruction. Forgiveness is not always easy when you`ve been hurt by those you love, but forgiveness allows you to free yourself from the anger, rage, pain, and frustation, so that it does not manifest into despair, depression, and a lifeless life filled with loneliness and regret. Don`t let your pride get in the way of what`s important.

    Sandra Gonzales // 2012-07-07 17:54:25 // //
  • I agree with the forgiveness part but not the depression part. There are those that choose to be depressed and can let go of it, Unfortunately, real depression is a whole other ball game that alot of people can`t just let go of willingly even though they truly want too.

  • Forgiveness promotes acceptance and when you accept yourself and others (beauty & flaws) you free yourself from the prison pity-wall labelled "Why me?"

    Sandra Gonzales // 2012-07-07 17:29:20 // //
  • What MAKES them toxic is our reaction to them... If we love them, feel them, express, then and establish what they need and honour them - then they are POSITIVE and awesome! If we negate them, repress them, and try to bypass them with niceness, peace, love and forgiveness (without having engaged with them) then the manifest - internally (like cancer, arthitus, etc) or externally (like accidents...).... I pray you teach honouring and not bypassing Deepak! <3

  • The question is HOW to forgive, for instance how does someone forgive drone attacks that kill innocent children & waste billions of $$$$$$$? When there is no justice is forgiveness possible? How do you forgive the greed of the 1% when 24% of American children live in poverty? MLKjr said poverty was the the most damaging type of violence, again how to forgive when nothing changes? The 1% buy the politicians & make the rules & we are told over & over to forgive them, they know not what they do.........but they do know what they do, the war mongers know what they do. Innocent children die of starvation & are killed by drones & we should forgive the President & the generals, when, how will it stop. Why can`t those in power learn forgiveness why is it always the victims that are told to forgive.

  • Yes indeed forgiveness is so vital. Whenever i start to feel guilt shame fear etc I say I forgive myself until i can feel peace within.

  • Dear Deepak; this makes sense, I myself at 32 years of age have already experienced panic attacks and anxiety, which resulted in tachy cardia I had a procedure done on my heart. It fixed the tachy cardia but not my anxiety. But I feel like I don`t have any grudges, and I try to deal with my emotions as they come I`m very expressive with my feelings, I try not to suppress things. Is it possible to carry unconscious grudges? And if so what can I do to bring them to light ?

  • Thanks again Dr. Chopra! ...letting go of negative emotions (hormonal effects) is physically healthier than holding on to them. That`ll keep us from getting carried away with anger or something. Feel free to come and talk to Texas. Smiles!

  • Forgiveness is healing, but not necessarily of the body. It heals the soul. Jesus tells us to forgive 70 times 7 times. He says to Love our enemies, to bless those who curse us. I don`t know how this guy is or what he preaches. It does not sound Christian. I have no idea if the chemistry he suggests is real or not, it does not matter. Salvation comes through Jesus Christ, He is the Way, the Truth and the Life, no one comes to the Father but through Him. Forgiveness is part of Salvation, nothing more needs to be said.

  • I have found this experience 20yrs ago quite liberating, and others can not understand, why there is no resentment and retaliation. My message it takes 2 to tango and no one is perfect or right in the outcome, it just happened, perhaps not in the way you wanted the result, nevertheless you need to let go and let the higher power rule and provide judgement. He always does in many ways and when he thinks the time is right - you see the results but with a clear conscious. Remember, we have all made a mistake and wouldn`t like others retaliating against us but forgiving us and let us learn from our mistakes.

  • Four years ago my husband had a very serious stroke, was in a coma for three weeks and has left him in a very dependent. I have worked in the field for many years and know how poor the system takes care for people so he is at home with me. I meditate, have a moderate diet, read everything I can about the brain and have 2 very competent helpers BUT... some days I get very depressed and short tempered. I can hardly talk to him. What more can I do to ease the stress and how do I forgive him when I am constantly reminded that our life is up side down. He is healthy and can live a long time. I don`t want this to be the next 20 years. Thank you

  • Personally I realised forgiveness is so liberating. Definitely releases a big burden. Letting go of the burden of judgement and accepting that you have to have faith in God. The infinite possibilities that are born of this faith opens up horizons and a uplifting of spirit that is so blissful. Suddenly everything seems to be in the right place. There is peace within your heart and you are exactly where you ere meant to be. What past was just an experience. A painful one maybe, but with forgiveness, get ready a joyful and content one ahead.

  • Forgiveness is the ultimate releaser of the soul. When I learned to forgive I gave myself a pathway to a happier place. When I held angry and unhappy thoughts, I was an unhappy person, as soon as I looked into the rhyme and reason of a person`s actions, I learned that there was a whole catalogue of reasons why another person could act the way they did. I then realised that it was not for me to judge or to try and understand the reason or the why behind their action. Even though I began to understand the `how` I knew that the solution was to forgive. Forgiveness allows us to let go of grievances and anger and move forward. Whatever the deed against us was their problem, if we then take that problem as our own, we carry their burden as well as our own... Accept whatever happens in our life as a learning experience for the future, then let go. Forgiveness allows us to be who we were meant to be. We have released those emotions and let go of something that was never ours to keep but merely something we needed to experience for the benefit of our spirit and to help us to grow.

  • Letting go of the burden of judgement is a wonder sppiritual law. I read this in the 90s,, and understood form Deepak`s book of the 7 laws that judgement is not just of people, but of any circumstnace you come across. I didn`t realize the amount of judging I was doing, and the stress it then put on me to stick to that judgement. A spiritual law, a Christian commandment, something that has helped me dearly.

  • Where is it you`ve heard about forgiveness the most Deepak Chopra? What was the best story you`ve ever heard about forgiveness? To me, King David asking God to forgive him and then accepting the total acceptance into God`s Work on earth. Or maybe when Christ healed, and the accepting person saw in Him the surety this could happen. Re: his daughter, the Roman Centurion said...You don`t have to come to her bedside, just say the word and she will be healed from here!"

  • The journey in your life is to learn to surrender to it and know that you are not the doer but life IS, through you. Forgive yourself and forgive your enemies cause they are also the victims of the fact they believe they are the doer. This is the result of the duality enterng life at a certain stage.... The core self is the unconditional creative force, always bringing solutions to where there are problems and when you grow towards complete surrender (which is a natural process in life), problems will vanish gradually and complete peace is your reward....
