Forgiveness Frees Up Energy for Your BIG Leap

Ever had moments during your BIG Shift when you felt at the mercy of  the world? Someone didn't fulfill a commitment, plans fell through, or  an unexpected event occurred that had a disastrous impact on your world.

BIG Shifts can send your world into a tailspin, especially if you dwell on the downside of your descent. Stuff happens. But YOU keep it alive by turning it over in your mind relentlessly and talking about it incessantly, as if the bad news were gospel truth.

Here's your window of opportunity. Call in the power tool of forgiveness. Forgiveness helps to heal the perception of separation. It is an opening to the understanding of your essential connectedness.

The problem with the illusion of separation is that when you see others as separate, it makes real the idea of you as a separate being in your unconscious mind. It also keeps you in a position of being at the mercy of the world.

Quantum physics teaches that you cannot really separate one thing from something else. So … you are everywhere and, in fact, the world is not being done to you; it is being done by you. This makes forgiveness a snap, doesn't it?

I like the concept of Quantum Forgiveness from A Course In Miracles as it undoes the idea of separation (the ego) in your unconscious mind. This is because of an important energetic principle which A Course in Miracles puts this way:

‘As you see him you will see yourself. As you treat him you will treat yourself.  As you think of him you will think of yourself. Never forget this, for in him you will find yourself or lose yourself.’

Through this kind of forgiveness you come to realize that the people you see out there are just split aspects of your own mind. Forgiveness is an invitation to awaken from the dream and return to what we really are… ONE.

Quantum forgiveness is a powerful tool because it is done at the level of the mind, which is ‘cause’ and not at the level of the world, which is ‘effect.’ It is not about giving up the world; it is simply changing your experience of it. This is not about fixing your life. It is about waking up to your life. When you give up the life you had, for the life that is possible, you are now in the playground of real power … a life at cause!

Changing your vantage point, changes the view AND the knowing. From there your seeing is dictated by true vision. Presto, change-o, just like that, everything's different. This kind of forgiveness is more about ‘right seeing.’

Forgiveness does not change the past,
but it does enlarge the future. Paul Boese

Forgiveness is vital to your personal evolution and impacts the ease with which you navigate your BIG Shift. It opens the floodgates to an abundance of ideas and resources. It opens the flow of what is naturally available to you.

Here are 3 ways to connect with forgiveness to help you do just that:

1. List 10 positive outcomes of your BIG Shift.  Chances are you've given plenty of energy to what's wrong about this BIG Shift. Take the time to notice what's right! Look for the silver lining, what positive possibilities are at play? From a big picture perspective, what is now possible because of your BIG Shift? Be willing to re-write the story of your BIG Shift.

2. Practice compassionate self care. If you've mused over your BIG Shift for a long time, realize that setting off on a new direction can take some time. As you try to make a new path out of the dark woods, you'll make mistakes. Be patient and kind to yourself. Extreme stress has a profound effect on the body. Give yourself time to heal physically, emotionally and spiritually. Don't bottle up the pain and discomfort. Allow the time and energy to process the massive changes in your world.

3. Bless your BIG Shift. When you start feeling down about your situation, send it light AND send a blessing. The energy of a blessing has two effects:  it neutralizes the toxic effect of negative emotions (which are stored in your body) and the blessings you bestow on the situation come back to you. It's an energetic principle!  As you shift from blaming to blessing you've accessed the most powerful pathway.  A word of warning: when you first try this, the “blessing” may feel contrived, empty, and even hypocritical but keep at it. Eventually, it will become your new way of being.

Forgiveness heals the illusion of separation and brings you to being at cause in your life, rather than at effect. Forgiveness frees others, but mostly, it frees YOU!

4 Ways Words Can Spark Up Your BIG Shift

A_picture_is_worth_a_thousand_wordsWords are powerful medicine.

They have the power to awaken, encourage and even inspire you to do things beyond your capacity.

Don't you want to access this level of power during your BIG Shift?

Remember a time when you were the recipient of  kind words. It could have been a teacher that singled you out for a special acknowledgement, or maybe recognition at work for a job well done. Words create a ripple effect that can impact your world in powerful ways.

The converse is also true. Think of moments when you indulged in criticism or found yourself complaining incessantly about something? What happened to your energy? Did you find that your outlook took a downward spiral?

Your energy is powerful and your words embody energy. Whether you choose to go positive or negative, you will find your energy expands in that direction. Energy flows where focus goes. What if you could direct the outcome of your BIG Shift by choosing words that powered up your being?

The words you speak become the house you live in. ~ Hafiz

Words are way more than a means of communication, they shape your beliefs, behaviors, feelings and ultimately your actions. Your words can either magnify problems or invoke possibility.

Here are 4 ways that you can use the power of your words to spark up your BIG Shift:

  1. Engage the energy of your words. The energy of your words is JUST as important as the actual words. You know that the delivery of a phrase can vary depending on the inflection and tone used. So too it is with the energy upon which your words ride. Your energetic intentions are just as important as the words themselves.
  2. Before speaking consider ‘who you are being.' You can quickly determine your state of consciousness by how you express yourself. Your words can either open or constrict, not only you but also those around you. Consider yourself from the most expanded aspect of your being – the brilliant and magnificent YOU – and deliver your words from the highest vibration possible.
  3. Speak your power words frequently. There are certain words that light you up and turn you on. Make sure they're part of your daily lexicon. Notice when a new ‘power word' arrives on the scene. You'll know it's yours because it energizes and expands your senses. Just saying the words will bring you joy.
  4. Bless everything. The good stuff and the not so good stuff. Utter blessings, and express your appreciation to everything and everyone you encounter. Write a letter to Life right and list ALL your blessings. Blessing connects you to the sacredness in everything. By blessing, you are blessed.

Words are powerful containers for energy and possibility. Choose words that expand, enlighten and energize you and those around you. You'll zoom through your BIG shift when you use the power of your words for love and for light. Yeah, baby, you've got that kind of power.

Choose Again


BIG Shifts create dynamic changes in every area of your world. The winds of change create ongoing opportunities to sweep away all that no longer serves you, if you're willing to let it go. BIG Shifts are an opportunity to clean house, inside and out.

If you're longing for times when things felt solid, certain and sure you're on for a wee bit of disappointment. The truth is that your life has always been open to cycles of change, chaos and high powered energy. There's always been a clarion call to something grander, deeper, more. You might have managed to subdue it for a while – finding a partner, raising a family, pursuing a career or business. Living does keep you busy. At some point, however, you might feel like you're missing an essential ingredient. This void can't be filled by outside sources, it's an internal call waiting to be answered.

If you're looking for ‘the way' somewhere out there  it will elude you. This approach is characterized by lack – something  out there is going to make it better. But the ‘the way' isn't out there, it's in here. I'm certain you've glimpsed the pulsating presence of your greater being in the shifting sands of the self.

The way is most often stumbled upon surprisingly, and often very Dorothy-like, you realize you've had the answer all along placidly poised within you. So much depends on the eyes with which you chose to see the world. If you choose a wounded perspective you'll find evidence of it everywhere. When you look through the eyes of your heart life is a wondrous adventure . Even BIG Shifts are an opportunity to expand, explore and relish the juiciness of the journey.

You are on a quest for authentic power. You cannot give up this quest. Your only choice is whether you wish to have the quest consciously or unconsciously. Gary Zukav

So what's possible? Anything and everything! You are who you choose to see and be. It's so simple, isn't it? So simple that the majesty of it escapes us.

What does it take to be this way? It takes a commitment to full engagement, awareness, and consciousness. It means being awake even when it would be easier to be asleep. It means taking responsibility for your life and the world that you see. And yes, you create the world you see with your every thought, word and action. You get to choose the quality of your experiences, relationships and the scope of the adventure.

This moment deserves your full attention, for it will not pass your way again. Dan Millman

The really good news is that you can always choose again. The past is gone, the future is yet to be. The only moment where you can choose is NOW. Choose again – choose life, choose love, choose YOU.
