The Difficult Topic Of Forgiveness



E-mail : *

Discussing the difficult topic of forgiveness is never easy.

For some, not forgiving someone or a past situation has been pent up for many years.

For others, there is someone who can not forgive them for something they said or did either consciously or unconsciously.

Or, it may be that they are unable to forgive themselves for something.

Whilst the circumstances may differ, the overall negative impact on you is the same:



The Negative and Positive Effects of Not Forgiving

ForgivenessUltimately, forgiving yourself or others means releasing resentment or anger.

An internal energetic block has been created where you can go neither  forward nor backwards with regard to the individual or situation.

This is extremely detrimental for your physical and mental health and well-being (and it has nothing to do with the other person).

Whilst holding onto these negative emotions, the only person being harmed is you.

It does not serve you and it risks your life span along with your overall health and well-being.

In studies, forgiveness has been shown to improve anxiety, sleep, depression and stress.  It also enhances your mood, vitality and levels of positivity.


How To Forgive Someone Who Has Wronged You

Forgiving someone is easier said than done.  Forgiveness

It can be challenging when someone has hurt you and there is no apology or sign of humility.

You may have been treated badly by someone who you think had no consideration for your feelings, and you ask yourself:  “How can I forgive someone who has treated me so dreadfully?”

Well, there are no situations that can not be forgiven, whether the injury was done by a family member, a friend or colleague.  Relationships, employers and even yourself can be forgiven.


How to Forgive Others and Yourself

The following tips will help you to release those negative emotions and move closer to forgiving others:

1. Acknowledge that being unforgiving harms only you. The buildup of negative energy takes a toll on your health and reconciling this internal imbalance will improve your well-being including sleep and stress levels.

2. Make a decision to forgive. The negative energy and emotions you feel is a clear sign that you are not coping well and a release is needed.

3. Allow yourself to feel compassion when forgiving someone, whilst recognizing that forgiveness is for you first, and others second.

4. Release the emotion. The experience has changed you and it is time to continue your growth as you can now express the act of forgiveness.

When forgiving yourself:

1. Taking responsibility for your actions is the first step. Recognize where the issue occurred and your role in it.

2. Forgive yourself. Say it, write it, chant it and feel it. We are all human, and occasionally we do something that is perceived as wrong or inappropriate.

3. If needed, speak to others concerned. Apologize for what took place, but note that you are not seeking their forgiveness, but your growth and ability to move past the issue.


At the end of the day, you are the person responsible for your happiness.

Living a life that is full and healthy, guilt and stress-free is your responsibility. Your health and well-being is your priority.

Do not let being unforgiving and harboring negative emotions prevent you from being the best person you can be.

‘Sheila has that special gift of calming your soul. I was feeling overwhelmed then with my life. I feel that every effort I make doesn't make sense and there is a pressure that I can't define in my life. After our sessions, I was able to sort things out. The conversations we had, lead me to where the pressure is coming from. I am grateful that I reached out to Sheila during my "confused" times. I wish Sheila more success on this. May you touch more souls as you progress!”

She instead taught me how to choose my own directions and grow as a person for unlimited happiness and abundance. I discovered that I could be far more than I originally thought I could be. I have gained a lot more than I expected from spiritual life coaching with Sheila. This is just the start of the new me. Thank you, Sheila.”

Adrian Client Testimonal Review


‘I would need a great deal more space to describe all the positive, life-changing things that Sheila has introduced me to. I am amazed at her thoughts on relationships, freedom, forgiveness, planning. There were numerous other things that she helped me bring to the fore. The discovery of thoughts and opinions I was carrying was so enlightening. Sheila has an easy, patient and highly intuitive manner. Giving guidance without leading, easily helping me to understand myself deeply. To be allowed to discuss things so openly with someone I felt I could trust was a revelation in itself. The strong trust created in our sessions was key to enabling me to think, to grow and to make my decisions. I now look forward to dealing with situations. Sheila is a fantastic coach… highly recommended.”

‘Sheila Pryce Brooks is the real deal in Spiritual Coaching. She has the kindest, most authentic personality and uses her unique and extraordinary talents to help lovingly guide you through your self-imposed limitations. She was so very helpful to me with a situation that was keeping me 'stuck' and allowed me to see that this was just temporary, while guiding me to release the block, freeing me to move forward toward my vision. Without Sheila, I would have still be wandering around a little longer in that place!! I am grateful for all of your help!”
