GAIN THE CONFIDENCE TO LOWER YOUR GUARD, LIVE LIFE AUTHENTICALLY AND ALLOW THE REAL YOU TO BE SEEN.
Hiding behind a mask, closing yourself off to happiness and trying to convince yourself that everything’s okay when really it’s not, does not constitute authentic living.
Not even close.
The truth is, when you’re processing the emotions that come up as the result of a past trauma (however large or small) our brains develop coping mechanisms that manifest as if from nowhere. But if these coping mechanisms aren’t disrupted and become part of your daily life, they will keep you trapped and playing small in the space between who you were and who you know, deep down, you’re meant to be.
This book will help you gain the confidence to lower your guard, live life authentically and allow the real you to really be seen. You will learn how to let go of your story, cultivate a new normal and start living life all over again on your own terms.
THE GREEN LIGHT OF FORGIVENESS
DISCOVER THE TRANSFORMATIONAL POWER OF FORGIVING THOSE WHO HAVE HURT YOU THE MOST.
Are you miserable and stuck in a life you’re not meant to be living? Are you putting on a brave face for the outside world while, deep down, feeling miserable? Do you wonder whether you’ll ever truly feel happy again?
You’re not alone, and what’s more, you don’t need to feel emotionally stuck between the past that you know is gone forever and the happy future you don’t quite feel ready to live.
Forgiving those who have caused you great pain feels counter-intuitive at first, like you’re giving your tormentors a free pass to walk all over you or letting them off the hook easily. Practicing forgiveness can leave you feeling like you’re giving away all your control, while leaving yourself helpless and vulnerable.
In reality, that couldn’t be more different.
Acts of forgiveness might require great bravery but it is only through forgiveness that you can release yourself from the pain and trauma of your past, and peacefully move forward.
That is what The Green Light of Forgiveness will help you do.
This book will help you understand the true power of forgiveness and shares a powerful meditation for you to use as the basis of your daily forgiveness practice. It’s this daily practice that will help you take back your life and let go of all the things, large and small, that no longer bring you peace and happiness.
The Green Light of Forgiveness has transformed lives. It singularly transformed mine.
In her early twenties, Toshia Shaw was taken from a restaurant and forced into a life of sex slavery. The post traumatic stress that she suffered after her escape meant that past life (and the feelings of safety and security that she had associated with it) was gone for good, and she found herself stuck emotionally between her past and her future.
Toshia believed for all the world that she would be immobilized and stuck in a place of anger, hurt and suffering forever. Her negative emotional state had a knock-on effect and she began physically suffering from paralyzing headaches, stomach ulcers and terrible panic attacks as the result of her stress and anxiety.
The only cure for her suffering, she found, was practicing forgiveness.
The daily practice that she teaches in The Green Light of Forgiveness will help you move past the anger and resentment you associate with your past and achieve more than in your future that you ever thought possible.
