Strong negative emotions in your conscious and subconscious mind take great toll on your body: physically, emotionally, and mentally. Emotions like anger, hate, resentment, and jealously interfere with normal physiological functions in your body. Emotions that originated years ago that are stored in your conscious and subconscious mind interfere with your normal bodily functions and your emotional and mental well-being. The new emerging science of psycho-neuro-endocrinology has confirmed this fact.

When you resent or hate somebody, for example, you are the one who carries the effects of these emotions in your body. Hate, resentment, and similar emotions can cause or contribute to the development of disease processes such as heart disease, cancer, high blood pressure, and ulcers.

Using forgiveness affirmation is an easy way to let go and release those negative emotions from your mind. The process is very powerful and it will work for you whether you believe it or not. Use it daily for a month and see what happens in your life. Do the affirmations in the following manner:

  • Visualize or think of the person you are angry with or may have hurt, intentionally or unintentionally. This could be a person, a group of people, an organization, or any other entity from your past or present. Include yourself if you feel guilty or sorry for things you might have done to yourself.
  • Mentally declare that you forgive them. Say, "I fully and freely forgive you. I let you go to your good quickly and in peace. All between us has been resolved with peace and harmony for all concerned. I do this with peace in my heart."
  • Mentally declare that they forgive you. Say, "You fully and freely forgive me. You loose me and let me go to my good quickly and in peace. All between us has been resolved with peace, love and harmony for all concerned."

Speak these affirmations in your mind. Speak them regularly, several times a day, preferably either in a relaxed state or when somebody arouses anger in you. Speak them for everybody you have difficulty with in your life. Then watch what happens.

Seeing everybody as perfect, including yourself, can improve everything in your life.
