Forgiving Wasn’t Enough

Denise told me that she had let go of the experience of being sexually abused as a child and had forgiven her abuser. So she was shocked when a recent event had re-awakened all of her feelings about that horrible time in her life.

As we explored what had happened she described feeling intensely unworthy and dirty. 

We used the process described in this book to release the belief we uncovered–the belief that she was responsible for being hurt. Ten minutes later the belief and feelings that went with it were gone.

Three weeks later she was still doing fine and, reviewing the situation, she discovered that she had followed instructions about how to manage forgiveness as an adult. 
The problem was that the part of her that had frozen her energy to protect herself from  an impossible-to-manage situation had not been addressed with those useful "how to" instructions. It took releasing the frozen energy to truly find peace. 

This paragraph is a comment I wrote about a passage on page 56 of Letting It Go: Relieve Anxiety and Toxic Stress in Just a Few Minutes Using Only Words (Rapid Relief with Logosynthesis®.)

You can see the passage in the book. You can also see the excerpt here. This link will take you to where I regularly publish comments on parts of this book. This is a site where authors share of their work. You can subscribe to my musings, there, as well as to the musings of many other authors. It’s a great place to learn about new books and I recommend that you visit.
