Even if we want to – sometimes it’s not easy to forgive. When someone else has done you wrong, why should you forgive them for it? Maybe they feel sorry about their wrongdoings, maybe they don’t, but that doesn’t really change how it affected you. But holding on to resentment isn’t helping you – it’s just disempowering you. If you want to let go, but find it difficult to do, this article will show you how to forgive other people.
There are different situations in which you might want to practice forgiveness.
Forgive A Friend? Or An Enemy?
Maybe the person who has done you wrong is a friend, and he or she did so without a negative intention. But still – your friend did you wrong and harmed you. So it’s difficult to just forgive that, even if you want to. There’s probably some part of you that more or less subconsciously wants retaliation, reparation or revenge.
The reason why you want to forgive a friend is of course because you want to stay friends, you value the friendship with that person, and you don’t want to damage or even lose it.
But what about when the person who has done you wrong is an enemy, who has harmed you deliberately? Shouldn’t you seek retribution?
Even in a case like that it’s better to forgive. Forgive, but don’t forget! Because as long as you hold on to anger, hatred and resentment, you hurt yourself more than you hurt the other person.

And how do you clear the toxic energy out of your system once and for all? You forgive, that’s how.
The negative emotions you have when you hold a grudge against someone are really poisoning you from the inside out. They release stress hormones in your body that are negative for your well-being and your mental performance.
Some people find it works for them to extend compassion to the person who victimized you or treated you unfairly. If this works for you, that’s great – but if you feel you have to force yourself to do it, and it doesn’t feel “real”, then quit trying, there’s another way.
The best way to get “revenge” is to be happy and have a good life.
Self hypnosis can help you to clear the negative energy away and be able to fully forgive others.
You will have more peace in your life, more fulfilled relationships, more joy and happiness and more energy – both mentally and physically.
True forgiveness is not something you logically or intellectually. It’s something you do emotionally – and you can’t go there with your mind. That’s why hypnosis is so powerful – because it involves your whole being, rather than just your conscious thought processes. Rather than having to “try” to forgive a person by somehow talking yourself into it, you let it happen naturally, on an emotional level.
Because the very core of yourself actually wants to get rid of resentment – but there’s an emotional traffic jam inside you that prevents forgiveness from happening. You can think of hypnosis as the green light that brings the traffic back into flow – the traffic jams gets dissolved just like that.
