Now imagine the quiet moving into your mind. Now be still. Be perfectly still. Quiet and still. Breathe through your mouth and yawn. Still. Still in your emotions. Nothing moving. You are breathing, quietly and your body is still. Perfectly still. It feels good and your muscles relax. You become aware of some tension that had been building in your mind and emotions and your back and neck. It releases and you exhale. Move your neck around. Feel the stillness reaching into you. Be still in your will. Quiet and still.
I want you to imagine your mind being very quiet. Nothing. You are breathing but not thinking. Your mind is still and at rest. You are sitting in a chair overlooking a lake on a summer morning. No wind. Quiet. The trees behind you are quiet. You can feel the quiet. Be quiet. Open your mouth and breathe through your mouth. Release the yawns. Take a deep breath. Exhale. Enjoy the quiet. This is your destiny.
When you are hurt, someone close to betrays your heart, it is like they have stabbed you. Stabbed you in your spirit and heart. It is a spiritual and heart wound. These wounds heal differently.
For your heart to heal, first you must forgive the person for what they did to you. Forgive doesn’t mean forget. Forgive doesn’t mean reconcile. It means you release them from the ugly that they did to you. It doesn’t change the scar or the consequences of what they have done. You forgive them for what they did to your heart. To you. To us. It is unconditional and very intentional. It needs to be said out loud and if you can, to the person.
