Forgiveness - The Empty Chair Method

Here are the step by step instructions on how to forgive:

  1. Ask permission to speak to the person's "higher self"
  2. Depending on the necessary conversation allow yourself to say whatever pent up things you have - be they positive or negative things. Let loose and don't hold anything back!
  3. Apologize for pointing that negativity at the person, or for not sharing the positive things.
  4. Ask, "Will you forgive me?" Whether they do or not is not important.
  5. Ask Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost, "Will you forgive me?" Wait until you feel like they have forgiven you.
  6. Ask yourself, "Will you forgive me?" This can be one of the hardest steps!  Be kind to yourself!
  7. Feel the freedom, peace, love, and miracles that come into your life!

Additional suggestions:

  1. Make a list of people to forgive, add to it as more come to mind. 
  2. Make this method a daily occurrence - don't let things build up! 
  3. Don't forget that God can be on the list, too! It's okay to be angry at Him, He can handle it!
  4. Sometimes you might still feel angry at someone and not be able to let it go...I have had to do it again with a few people, because I didn't want to feel how angry I really was. It's hard to admit to myself that I have that much hatred stored inside, but it HAS to come out and it is soo worth it.
