The benefits of letting go of grudges and bitterness are profound. By clearing your space, by letting go, you make way for compassion, kindness and peace. By letting go, you are clearing the space for forgiveness.
How do you let go? First you become aware of your feelings and when they rise to the surface, you acknowledge them, note them and then breathe them out.
Here is a simple breathing exercise:
Start with the out breath and repeat in your mind’s eye …
Breathe out bitterness, anger and resentment.
Breathe in love. (Repeat 8 times)
