The act of forgiveness can heal body, mind, and spirit. The physical and mental health benefits of the intentions of forgiveness, compassion, and love are indeed objectively measurable. We are only beginning to emerge into a greater understanding of how our intentions shape our individual wellbeing and collective world.
The two guided visualizations on Feel Forgiveness Now are designed to guide you into opening your heart and allowing the possibility of forgiveness to enter your life as an opportunity to heal painful experiences and move on and recover from negative acts - both those inflicted upon you, or actions that you may have made toward others.
Dr. Juliet Rohde-Brown has based the guided visualizations in this program on a form of meditation known as Metta. The closest translation of the Buddhist term Metta is ‘lovingkindness’. Metta is a heart-centered practice that involves visualizing oneself and others with an intentional gesture of love and compassion. It is a practice that fosters acceptance, as well as transcendence of negative patterns, habits, and attitudes.
Forgiveness does not equate to condoning. It does not mean that you should give up appropriate and safe interpersonal boundaries or responsibility for hurtful acts. But, forgiveness does mean that can you have compassion for yourself and for others, regardless of events that have occurred. Forgiveness requires a surrendering to the core Self, that part of us that transcends time, place, and attachment. It involves a shift in meaning and perspective.
If you already have heart-centered practices that you engage in, you will find value in receiving the specific visualizations offered here. For those of you who do not have a formal practice, consider this program an introduction to a wonderful healing process.
Both visualizations are grounded in the element of water. Water is a universal symbol of renewal. The first visualization involves lying down on warm flat stones in a stream as cool water spirals around each vertebrae of your spine while you allow yourself to develop the feeling of forgiveness toward another. The second visualization places you in a cave behind a waterfall while you envision your own image and that of others within a glowing light. The symbol of the waterfall exemplifies the ever-changing nature of life, as you broaden your sense of love and compassion.
These visualizations are enhanced by musical accompaniment composed by Peter Morley. The sounds of the movement of the stream, the cascading waterfall, droplets in the cave, and birds in the forest all serve to deepen your experience, using tones and rhythms that encourage you to slow your breathing and heart rate as you center your attention into your heart. His musical and environmental soundscapes arise from the deep place of his own meditation practice.
Forgiveness is a resounding personal intention, which can bring profound joy and happiness into your own life, and to those around you. Feel Forgiveness Now will assist you to expand your awareness in a gesture of love for yourself and all sentient beings.
