Relax and take a deep breath. Clear your mind.
Realize there is a grievance at the root of every problem, and using your intuition and trusting the first answer that pops into your head, ask yourself:
If I were to know who it is that I have a grievance against, it’s probably _________________.
Picture this person standing in front of you.
Ask for help from your higher mind. Recognize that you have used this grievance to hold your whole life back. Now choose not to use this person as a way to hold yourself back. Choose this situation to become a place of peace instead of grievance.
Ask for the gift of forgiveness to fill you. Now, specifically ask for forgiveness for this person to fill your heart and, when this is complete, feel the energy of forgiveness flowing from your heart to theirs. Ask your higher mind to help with this flow. If the new situation does not feel completely joyful, repeat the last part of the exercise. Through willingness, each time you practice this exercise you will make it and yourself better.
