Forgiveness meditation

Settle and breathe deeply. ...

Rest in the peace of God. ...

Bring to mind a person you haven't forgiven. ...

The two of you stand together.

Jesus comes and looks at the two of you
with great kindness in his eyes.

He embraces the other.
Perhaps there are words,
though likely you can't hear them.
Perhaps there are tears.
He holds them for a long time. ...

They release the embrace, look at each other
and smile. ...

Jesus turns to you
with great kindness in his eyes.
He embraces you.
Perhaps there are words.
(What might they be?)
He holds you a long time. ...

He releases you and looks at you
and smiles. ...

You look at the person you want to forgive.
What is in your heart? ...

Tell them. …

Jesus blesses you and leaves you
with your new heart.
