The key when saying, and/or reading, affirmations is to feel the feelings they portray. It can help to fully relax and know that at the core of your being, these statements are true. If they feel out of reach or you are having a hard time convincing yourself of their truth, adjust the affirmation to include the words choose, potential, or willing to make them true for you at this moment.
Also, affirmations gain their power from repetition. The more often you say them, the more they will impact your reality. Affirmations are not a one-time-event…say them once and life is perfect. Affirmations are an everyday choice, a choice we make with our thoughts and feelings. The more often you use them, the quicker you will begin to see new opportunities, engage in new healthy behaviors, and feel energized by the direction your life will be taking.
I am willing to forgive.
I release myself from my anger and let the past go.
The past is forgiven. I am thankful.
I allow divine love to permeate my thoughts.
I live in the now each moment of each day.
Today, I forgive myself.
My memory of this situation is healed. I move forward with renewed joy toward life.
Today is graced with the Divine.
Forgiveness is a gift I give to myself over and over again.
Forgiveness expands within me to let the past go and open my eyes to the happiness of tomorrow.
