Forgiveness is about letting go of old hurts and grievances. It doesn’t mean that what happened was right but that you will no longer remain hostage to the past.

Forgiveness is not always an overnight process. It can take time, attention, compassion, and care as you work to address events, reflect on your own choices, accept what was, make peace with the past, and forgive yourself and others.

The ancestral forgivenessand peacemaking prayer technology of Howard Wills demonstrates how thought, word, and deed are tools of creation and how speaking positive words of blessing, forgiveness, apology, release, and peacemaking for ourselves and on behalf of others, opens the way for greater love, peace, joy, abundance, wellbeing, and freedom. Forgiveness is ultimately a gift you give yourself. It frees you and restores peace and love to your heart, joy, innocence, and goodness to your spirit, and re-connects you to the beauty of life and to who you really are.
