Happy March dearest soul family! This solo episode was recorded with lots of heart and the intention of helping you to better understand the toxic effects of judgment and the healing elixir of forgiveness and connection. Really this is about how to stop judging yourself (you know who you are) and giving yourself the grace and space to be on the human journey here to learn and grow from all experiences. If you prefer a visual version, do check my episode out on YouTube, where all episodes are posted.)


The Surprising Effects of Judgment

*Judgment is one of the most toxic chemicals. Take time for a sacred pause to feel to heal, and let go of judgment of yourself.

* Share authentically with someone you trust whatever is most uncomfortable. Don’t let judgment of yourself get in the way.

* Doing an inventory of stored up feelings like anger, resentment and frustration is an excellent way to give space to what’s going on below the surface. The important part is not to judge yourself or any feeling that emerges. All is well.

* The healing will happen in your feeling and in revealing how you feel.

*The ego lives in fear and judgment. You and I are either in fear or love.

* The acronyms to remember: EGO (Edging God Out) and FEAR (False Evidence Appearing Real)


The Power of Forgiveness

* We are all made of energy. Unexpressed emotions remain as stored up energy in your cells and can lead to deeper frustration, resentment, stress, despair and even illness.

* Forgiveness, first for yourself, and then for others, is a powerful way to change your own internal energy.

* Look for the bigger picture and a wider lens of whatever is needing your forgiveness. Imagine your listening to a friend tell you what you are working on forgiving yourself for. Extend the same grace you’d give a friend, to yourself.

* Warning: The act of forgiving yourself (and others) will change your life.
