What do I write? How will it be perceived? Is it good enough? Who I am to write about forgiveness?
These are the questions that were popping up as I pondered this subject. Through my forgiveness work that I have set out to do this year in Masterful Living, I have had such deep healing and profound insights. It hasn’t been easy and yet it brings me to a place of self-compassion. All of the forgiveness letters that I have been inspired to write are all self-forgiveness letters. The Course of Miracles teaches us that true forgiveness is self-forgiveness. I’m forgiving my false perceptions and my beliefs.
Bringing these letters to the Forgiveness Friday sessions to read out to the group of compassionate listeners is very beneficial for my healing and the healing of the group. Holy Spirit has its purpose and that is to heal. Holy Spirit inspires us to write these letters, read these letters, and share these letters for the benefit of all. “When we are healed, we have not healed alone” rings through my mind during these sessions. The listeners give new insights bringing me more self-awareness. This is true healing. Wow! What a tool I have now!
Being part of The Power of Love Ministry this year has helped me through my grief journey. Forgiveness work has been my go-to when I’m in a downward spiral. It’s very powerful.
I encourage everyone to write these letters and read their letters at the Friday sessions. The compassionate understanding of the group is so supportive and nourishing for our souls. All of us are helping each other in such profound ways that we cannot even begin to understand. The Holy Spirit has got us covered!

I took Finding Freedom in 2017 and I’m in ML1. I’m widowed as my husband, Andrew, passed in October 2018 after 4 1/2 years with ALS. A Course In Miracles got me through those years and now I’m so grateful to be a part of this compassionate community of mighty companions, supporting me in a new chapter of my life.
