    I think this meditation is worth do overs. The emotion can be intense as you focus on forgiving just one person. For me, there are a few people that I need to forgive including myself. The meditation brings in a sense of self and a connection to our own energy. We become aware of how our energy and what we put out can result in us giving our power away. I gave my power away…too many times. Walking through taking it back is very empowering. Thank you Dakota.

    I’m going to have to sit with this one for a while. The person I’m forgiving is myself. Ive always been so hard on myself. I found myself crying during this meditation. Or at least I was trying to cry. Something was trying to come out. I haven’t had a good cry in many years. So I will sit with this. Be gentle with myself. Stop blaming myself and shaming myself. Let go.

    I will be doing this meditation multiple times this week. I said the words “I forgive you” but in my heart it was “I’m working on forgiving you.” It’s even more complicated because it’s about forgiving her not just for my pain, but for my brother’s pain. I know that I cannot heal my brothers’ pain but our pains are all intertwined. I’m personally working on letting go of my own guilt for the pain my brother experienced (again our pains are intertwined) as well as the pain she also inflicted upon me – the pain of witnessing the abuse of my brother as well as the pain of her own abuse towards me. I don’t think I can forgive one and not the other.
    This came at an interesting time as last week I did a burning ceremony to let go of the guilt and shame associated with my role in the suffering of my brother – and that ceremony resurrected the anger at the “caregiver.” I believe this week i’ll be alternating the meditations focused on forgiving me and forgiving her.

    Forgiveness goes deeper than this lesson gives time for. I will come back to it. I could spend a month processing, then integrating. It is stirring up dreams in that direction. That’s a good thing.

    Thank you! It was a beautiful meditation. Brought peace to my heart, one step closer to self-forgiveness and self-acceptance.

    I have used the two work sheets, I think it was good help to structure what went wrong. And to move the thoughts from looping in the head to the paper. It made everything much more clear. Hope it will help me together with the meditation to do a closure.

    Finally Completed the forgiveness of others…
    Took me few days to face it…
    I’d previously completed The forgiveness of self and that had been pretty profound experience and took a few days for me to recover and intregate those new thoughts and feelings into my being…

    The meditation and two worksheets worked miracles, so relieved I challenged myself to do them, feeling stronger and more grounded.

    Once again Dakota, a thousand blessings of gratitude.

    This is another meditation when the wind came up blowing violently at the exact moment. As if I’m more connected to the energy of wind and allowing it to shift the energy as needed. How could it be so perfectly orchestrated if it indeed wasn’t spirit assisting.

    So fascinating the way spirit works! In the previous meditation, when we met with our spirit guides for a message, I was given a white rose and told to forgive myself. I clicked “complete” on that meditation and was brought to this page which was a forgiveness meditation! Last night, i completed the meditation for myself – and planting that seed of light in my heart was so healing. Tonight, I repeated the meditation, but called forth all the men in my life who’ve hurt me – and one by one I spoke to each of them and told them what part of myself I was reclaiming. Then, one-by-one, I forgave them all. Connecting back to God-Source and filling up those empty spaces with light and love felt so empowering. I re-claimed the power I’d given to each man and ended the meditation feeling great gratitude for the experiences I shared with each of them – and how it led me on the journey I’m on, now, around the medicine wheel. 🙂 Thank you, Dakota!

    I took a few days after doing this meditation and did the second this morning. I was so thankful for both. I have gone through so much with the family that I was born into and the forgiveness exercise was emotional. I am huge on forgiveness yet struggled with forgiveness toward my brother over an incident that happened a few years ago. It involved my daughter as well as much of my family. The incident completely broke down everything I believed and who I was. I had been stripped and had to re-build from scratch. It was truly the darkest of nights. It has been a few years and still they are trying to goad me though I have separated myself from them. The very mention of my brother would instantly bring up feelings of betrayal and anger. I knew forgiveness was needed, and perhaps I was not yet ready. I can see after time the situation from a bigger picture without attachment, yet I began to wonder if what happened was just something that was unforgivable. After this meditation I needed some time to just be, and this morning was feeling much lighter. I would say that more work needs to be done and feel that there is so much more tangled in all that other than just that situation. So I will continue to work on the forgiveness aspect regarding this. The second meditation this morning however truly was so very helpful and needed. It worked beautifully with this one.

    Did the worksheet on forgiveness of self the other evening. Felt empowered, writing it all down, got it out of my system. Then cried, just gentle silent tears… Felt strange afterwards. Perhaps it’s just releasing the bad stuff I’ve held onto? Felt empty… So I’m trying to fill it with self love…. One gentle day and step at a time.
    When I redid the meditation, the night before the worksheet, same feeling of emptiness…heart felt so cold. ( so different from my first listen to it…perhaps I’m going deeper now, I think so…)
    But those steps of self love, went to city yesterday, met X sister in law, ( always stirs up memories of my marriage to her brother…). But beautiful catch up. Then I went to shop to look at small rattle… Was so happy bought funny little animal head on stick, coloured Black and Tan, colours of my awesome cat. Then spotted money drum, both child’s toys, but that ticked box! Have the fun I didn’t experience as child… ( was told to be quiet and don’t speak till spoken too , sounds very Victorian..chuckle..when I think of it now…I’m NOT that old! ) Both items beautifully made, very small, authentically made, so chuffed to bits…and both for under £10 so couldn’t believe my luck. Feeling supported and blest by spirit…
    Will do the exercise this afternoon on foregiveness of others….. Wish me well!
    Supporting and loving hugs to follow soul travellers. ❤️❤️❤️

    Tonight I took the first steps towards forgiving myself for losing my leg. It wasn’t my fault, My beautiful stump has enabled me to turn my life around. Dakota thank you for creating the safe space of this meditation. I am so grateful. Aho Mitakuye Oyasin Aho x

    Wow, felt the energy go over my head, through my crown chakkra down my spine, before you even said it!
    Very powerful!
    Thank you, can see myself working through this in myself to forgive and others…
    Awesome!
    Couldn’t don’t load the two worksheets, perhaps that’s when on course?
    So excited
    Love light and laughter blessings always
