The Power Of Forgiveness

How Release and Let Go Can Be Paramount To Your Success


As long as you don't forgive, who and whatever it is will occupy rent-free space in your mind

You may think of forgiveness as the process of settling injustice. Typically when we are wronged, we apologize, and when someone wrongs us, we accept their apology and collectively consider this process to equal forgiveness.  This cannot be further from the truth!  As a result of us not understanding the totality of forgiveness, we have remained carrying many things that we should not and we have not had access to success and abundance.

Just a few days ago, I was talking to a great friend of mine about forgiveness.  She was telling me that she took time to look within, and noticed that there were grudges that she had never taken the time to notice.  I responded, “That is so good! Maybe I should do the same”.  When I was making this commitment to her, I had not understood the tip of what forgiveness actually was.  When I got home, I began reading Catherine Ponder’s book, The Dynamic Laws of Prosperity, and as a result, light bulbs were turned on that had never been on before.  As I was reading her Chapter on the Vacuum Law of Prosperity, God was using her words to pour healing and a new word into me.

Many of us do not understand the majority of what we are instructed to do in forgiveness, and this article will provide additional clarity on forgiveness.  Jesus told  us that we must forgive before we can manifest in Mark 11:22-25 which says:

“Have faith in God,” Jesus answered. “Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.”

Joyce Meyer When you forgive, you must cancel the debt. Do not spend your life paying and collecting debts

Forgiveness in its totality is the removal of limiting beliefs.  Daily, you go places, interact with people, use items, and you are effected by everything that God has created around us.  Unfortunately, the majority of your thoughts are placed in a tunnel of limitation.  When you see a bird, you expect it to act in the patterns of the past, When you see a tree, you expect it to act in the patterns of the past, when you see your loved ones, you say, “Well, I know he won’t do ……, or she will do……” without allowing God to break the pattern.  As a result of us placing your surroundings in a tunnel, you have limited their capabilities, and must forgive those limitations to experience miraculous transformation.

As I am writing you, I must plead guilty.  I have limited my surroundings too.  I have assumed that when I ask for things that certain people will respond, and others will leave me hanging.  I have assumed that certain people will be blessed by things, and others would be too ignorant to receive it.  I have not asked my husband to do things because I assumed what he would do or say.  I have not asked my son to do things because I assumed what he would do or say.  I have not attended gatherings because I assumed what it would “only be about”, or falsely assumed poor outcome.  I am guilty too, and for this reason, I am writing you, so that together, we can walk into greater prosperity.

Catherine Ponder said, “New Substances do not flow easily into a cluttered situation”. On another instance, she said, “Often it is difficult to know what you do want until you get rid of what you do not want”.  We must remove the physical and spiritual clutter to truly walk in forgiveness.  As God did with the flood, he completely out-poured from Heaven pure waters to remove the old and fertilize the new.

Here are a list of things that we must release:

  • Feelings of injustice
  • Gifts
  • Thoughts of limitation
  • Fear
  • Release your talents from expected Reciprocity
  • Release Your Money
  • Debt
