I Forgive Myself – A Prayer
I forgive myself. Have you said this yourself?
Guilt and Shame are the lowest vibrational emotions. They get us in a spiral of darkness and depression. Forgiveness is the ultimate healer of shadows. We spend years and years subconsciously carrying the guilt and blocking our blessings without realizing how guilty and ashamed we feel about asking, receiving and enjoying them. This is because knowingly or unknowingly we have created a belief system that we are NOT worthy or NOT enough because of so and so.
(Really ask yourself this question if you haven’t asked ever. Journal this and see for yourself how you are holding your past mistakes and unworthiness against your own self. Where do you think you haven’t considered yourself worthy? What is it that resentment that you are holding against yourself? )
Forgiving yourself will help you take that quantum leap in your manifestation process.
Following is a prayer I am sharing so that you can rise above the guilt and shame because it’s time you rise into fully loving yourself and accepting yourself for all that you are, have been and will be.
You can create a safe, sacred space before doing this so that your actions are aligned to the highest truth and compassion. Sage your space or light a candle, take few deep breaths, settle yourself with your favourite blanket, crystals or charms.
Throughout this prayer I am using ‘Inner Guide’ – you are free to replace it with your own version (God/Universe/Intuition/Inner Self/Higher Self…).
Dear inner guide,
Thank you for guiding me to this practice today.
Today I am choosing to free myself.
Allow me to let go of all resentment, guilt, anger and disappointments I have held against myself for so long.
They don’t serve me anymore.
I am willing to let them go.
I am choosing freedom for myself today.
Dear Inner Guide, allow me to forgive myself for my mistakes and imperfections. I didn’t know any better.
But now I do.
And so, I choose to be kind to myself.
Please allow me to extend the kindness and compassion to myself that I show so freely to everyone around me.
I deserve forgiveness. I am worthy of being forgiven.
I am worthy of experiencing freedom.
Dear Inner Guide, allow me to accept myself for all that I am.
Today I give myself permission to accept myself for all that I am.
I accept all parts of me today – the light and the shadow – both.
I allow myself to see perfection in my imperfections.
I accept myself wholly.
Dear Inner Guide, allow me to forgive myself for not loving myself enough.
I didn’t know any better.
Today I choose to forgive myself.
I choose to love and accept myself today.
I love myself.
I forgive myself.
I accept myself.
And so it is.
And so it is.
And so it is.
Thank you Inner Guide for doing this with me today.
Remain in this state for as long as you wish to. Save this prayer and come back to it whenever you feel you’re being hard to yourself.
YOU ARE WORTHY OF YOUR OWN FORGIVENESS.
