Through forgiveness, a person can convert suffering into new energy to move forward. It partly depends on choice and partly on compassion. It releases trapped energy for use elsewhere. (Cooper, Robert K., PhD., and Ayman Sawaf. Executive EQ. NY: Grosset/Putnam, 1997, pp 74-75)
Forgiveness can free up and put to better use the energy that was formerly consumed by holding grudges. It is moving on, something you do for YOU. (Simon, Sidney B., PhD, and Suzanne Simon. Forgiveness: How to Make Peace With Your Past and Get on With Your Life. p 14, 18-20. MA: Grand Central Publishing, 1991.)
Hold thoughts of forgiveness in your mind as often as possible. In muscle testing, when you hold a thought of revenge, you’ll go weak, while a thought of forgiveness keeps you strong. Revenge, anger, and hatred are exceedingly low energies. A simple thought of forgiveness toward anyone who may have angered you in the past, without any action taken on your part, will raise your energy. (Dyer, Wayne, PhD. The Power of Intention. p 81. CA: Hay House, Inc., 2004.)
