51roegqC02L[1]2 Steps To ForGIFTness: Learning How To Forgive When Your Mind Says Yes But Your Heart Says No

Learn how to forgive when your mind says yes but your heart says no. Outlined are two steps to the process:

  1. Making the decision
  2. Releasing the emotion.

Knowing that forgiveness is not “forgetness”, helps the offended to grant forgiveness. In this book, the author takes you through the process using his own pain as a guide. The word ‘forgiftness’ has been coined to amplify forgiveness. For-gift-ness is a forward motion. It is the vehicle that moves or propels you forward. It moves you from the place of ‘stuckness’ to ‘unstuckness’. Having received forgiveness, you desire to have others experience what you have felt. For that to happen, you have to offer your forgiveness as a gift. It is a gift from the heart.

The following questions will help you determine if you should read this ebook.

  1. Have you ever had the thought of offering forgiveness to someone who has hurt you, but your heart screamed no?
  2. Have you ever felt confused about whether or not you should forgive?
  3. Do you at times think some offense should be unforgivable?
  4. Do you fear that forgiving someone is letting them off the hook and making it too easy for them?
  5. Do you feel like you have not forgiven someone because you still have thoughts about what was done to you?

If you have ever had any of the above thoughts or could see yourself wrestling with similar questions, then you are the ideal reader I have in mind. If you have not, then you too are the ideal reader because you will learn some principles you will need in the future. “Unforgiveness is allowing your offender to continue holding the handle while you hold the blade”.

Many people find the pursuit of happiness to be an elusive task. They go from one thing to another, one relationship to another, one job to another, one drug to another … seeking to find happiness.
Some do experience those momentary feelings of happiness and wish that it lasted longer than it did.

Why couldn’t they “hold” onto that happiness feeling? What interfered with the process?
What gets in the way of them having longer lasting happiness?

  • Is it fear?
  • Worry?
  • Drama in their lives?
  • Unforgiveness?
  • Past painful experiences?
