Day two MindBody Cleanse – The path of forgiveness
By Lauren Ostrowski Fenton
Episode 158 Being well with Lauren
Stop being loyal to your suffering and let it go Day 2 Forgiveness ( of 14 day MindBody cleanse)
Well how did you go with day One? What did you learn? Don’t forget that this is about giving up your teddy of past patterns and reforming new ones…and that is no easy process but you can do this. Today we examine forgiveness.
Why have I chosen to explore forgiveness so early in the Mind body course? Because all change, all healing, all cleansing starts with empathy compassion and forgiveness. This is not about trotting out a ‘that’s ok’ towards past memories and people this is about soul searching, meditation and self-inquiring in order that you physically and mindfully forgive everything which has occurred in the past- kind of like cleaning out a fridge…all the food with an expiry date is gone thrown out finished. You can do this. So roll up your sleeves and let’s get forgiving.
What is forgiveness?
Surrendering to letting go of every negative feeling and allowing love for the other person and love for yourself flood in. Feelings of understanding, tolerance, and exoneration are paramount here. When you forgive you take the box marked I still reflect on this past hurt with resentment and hurt out of your backpack- I give up all hurt and all resentment. To give up…now that is a big feeling isn’t? – to totally give up..but what happens when we give up something? When we forgive a hurt we feel lighter because our load is lighter…if we want to get to the top of the mountain we need to lighten our load.
Now don’t forget your yoga and meditation practice. And we will speak again tomorrow about Day three ;being in the present’.
Episode 157 Empathy & compassion day one of the 14-day Mindbody cleanse
Day one MindBody Cleanse – The path of compassion and empathy
By Lauren Ostrowski Fenton
Welcome to Day 1 of my14-Day MindBody Cleanse. I’m so excited that you’ve chosen to join me in this amazing journey. Are you excited? I know that I am. I want you to take a moment to pat yourself on the back. Remember you have made this decision to walk this path. You have formed the intention of clearing out the old and welcoming in the new. You have committed to change and that is no easy feat. Just as a child who feels attachment to an old much-loved teddy so do we as adults like to hold on to old patterns of thinking, negative self talk, and expectations. I promise you that today is a really important day. Today give yourself permission to take the first step. Today give yourself permission to walk gently but deliberately along the path to change.
Lets start at the beginning. Imagine that you are preparing for a long hike- a hike to the top of a tall mountain from which you can see your life with clarity and perspective. Lets pack our back pack…now what is the first thing we can bring? Thats right in order to walk this path of life with resilience, courage love and wisdom we need compassion and empathy.
Why did I start with compassion and empathy? Compassion and empathy is where the meaning of life starts because without compassion and empathy there is no kindness benevolence and concern for the suffering of others. Without compassion and empathy there would be no sense of community no human engagement. And with compassion and empathy we start the path towards enlightenment. Let’s call compassion and empathy our walking shoes.
