According to Mayo Clinic research, embracing forgiveness and relieving yourself of past pains plays a vital role in our Physical, Emotional and Spiritual health.
On the Physical level, letting go of the past boosts your immune system, lowers your blood pressure improving heart health, relieves acute and chronic pain, improves digestion and balances your hormones. Emotionally, forgiveness reduces stress, anxiety and hostility, enhances self-esteem, increases compassion and opens us to better relationships. On the Spiritual level, we feel re-connected with our closer and wider environment, our world expands and we are open to hear the innate guidance on how to proceed every day in alignment with our greater purpose.
These days we use navigation tools in so many ways that we can at times feel lost without them. I know I have learnt to rely on my satellite navigation in the car so much that the idea of having to search for an address and then using a book as I drive to a new destination seems cumbersome.
There is another thing to be said about this. The navigation system will offer more than one route to the desired destination. The initial information that we receive on the suggested time that each route would take to get us from A to B doesn't always hold true.
