You’ve been hurt. You’ve been cheated. You’ve been duped.
What happened keeps playing in your mind, like a skipping record.
And now you are stuck feeling bitter, guilty—or both.
Can you be free from this?
You can forgive without forgetting.
You can let go of the past.
You can make choices about what you feel and how you feel!
I am a Forgiveness Mentor and I know what it’s like to feel stuck in my thoughts and feelings about a wrongdoing.
For me, the wrong doing was being hit by a car by someone with poor judgment. When I was 17 years old, that man’s bad decision took my left leg from me and severely injured my right leg.
Over the next 12 years, I felt like the main character in the movie, Groundhog’s Day – waking up every day wanting to be different and happier, but always having the same thoughts and feelings about the accident and the man who hit me.
After years of living like this, I started to mistrust people and life. If something so bad could happen once, then surely it could happen again.
I also harbored secret feelings of revenge. I wanted the man who took my leg – and so much more - from me to pay. Big time. I fantasized about hurting him back.
But when I went through this forgiveness process and, ultimately forgave the man who took my leg, my life opened up. It’s like the lights in a dark room were turned on.
What about you?
Do you think about the wrongdoing so much—to the point of feeling like it’s happening again and again?
Do you feel like you don’t have control over what happens to you?
Do you fantasize about hurting the person who hurt you?
Do you find yourself constantly berating and judging people?
Through The Forgiveness Sessions, I can help you...
...forgive without forgetting.
...let go of the past and focus on your future.
...learn to be at choice with your feelings.
With 10 weekly one-on-one sessions (45 minutes via phone, Skype, or a place of your choosing in Bellingham, WA), you and I will be engaged in timed-writing prompts, clarifying conversations and short meditations. Each session will end with suggested homework exercises to keep the momentum going even when we're not face-to-face.
My goal for you to find a place to put this past wrongdoing and move forward with your life.
