NLP stands for Neuro-linguistic Programming. The creators of NLP (Bandler and Grinder) claim a connection between the neurological processes (neuro-), language (linguistic) and behavioral patterns learned through experience (programming), and that these can be changed to achieve specific goals in life.
Just before coming away on this holiday, I met a very kind and highly experienced NLP practitioner. He helped me identify that at least half of the suffering caused by Saagar’s death is directly related to the guilt I feel. We set a goal for this break – Forgiveness.
Oxford English Dictionary defines Forgiveness as: “to grant free pardon and to give up all claim on account of an offense or debt.” It is not an “agreement with” or an “approval of” whatever happened but an acknowledgement followed by learning.
Forgiveness is the energetic act of bringing oneself back into the Living Moment.
Starting today and for the next few days, I shall write down one specific thing I forgive myself for, on a piece of paper. I shall then burn that paper and throw the ashes in the lake.
