Invocation of Forgiveness

I call on the powers of metta and karuna,
to heal and wipe away resentment. 

I am ready to forgive and heal old wounds.
May I forgive you for harming me deliberately or by accident and make way for friendship. 

May I forgive all who have hurt me in the past, deliberately
or by accident. 

I am ready to forgive myself for errors
made and things I have done in the past that I regret.

Compassion replaces resentment, peace replaces anger as forgiveness grows inside me, my heart lightens filling me with a sense of wellbeing and acceptance. 

May I cultivate metta karuna for myself and all beings, the great healer of hearts.


Responses

  1. Very positive. About a year ago, I wrote down the names of people who had “wronged” me on little slips of paper. I held each paper in my hand and thanked them for what they had taught me and I forgave them, then I burned the little paper. I can’t tell you how this changed my life. Forgiveness is so liberating! Blessings to you!
