In Time for Christmas – Dissolving Resentment Exercise


Sometimes, I think that the Universe has a message that it wants to get out, and it just lines up the events so that it happens. 

Today, one of my friends sent me a bunch of Carrie Fisher quotes in an email because she knows that I am a Star Wars fan, and of course, a Carrie Fisher fan.  The poster at the beginning of this blog was one of the pictures that really resonated with me.  I thought, ” I should do something with that!”

Of course, at the moment, I had no idea what to do with it.  Then, another friend sent me a bunch of Louise Hay wisdom thoughts and quotes.  You guessed it!  One of the exercises was about getting rid of resentment.

In case I hadn’t gotten enough of a nudge, the gentle thought popped into my head – people really should get rid of resentment before Christmas.

So, here is the exercise that  comes from Louise Hay (1926-2017) website, and is about dissolving resentment.

Exercise: Dissolving Resentment

There is an old Emmet Fox exercise for dissolving resentment that always works. He recommends that you sit quietly, close your eyes, and allow your mind and body to relax. Then, imagine yourself sitting in a darkened theater, and in front of you is a small stage. On that stage, place the person you resent the most. It could be someone in the past or present, living or dead. When you see this person clearly, visualize good things happening to this person — things that would be meaningful to him. See him smiling and happy.

Hold this image for a few minutes, then let it fade away. I like to add another step. As this person leaves the stage, put yourself up there. See good things happening to you. See yourself smiling and happy. Be aware that the abundance of the Universe is available to all of us.
The above exercise dissolves the dark clouds of resentment most of us carry. For some, it will be very difficult to do. Each time you do it, you may get a different person. Do it once a day for a month, and notice how much lighter you feel.

As always, may you go in peace.
