A nurturing place for people who can't sleep

Practice Forgiveness


“Man should forget his anger before he lies down to sleep.” -Mohandas Gandhi

Are you angry? Holding onto resentment? This kind of thinking and emotion can keep us from getting a restful night of sleep.

Practicing forgiveness is the greatest gift you can give yourself. It frees up so much energy: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.

One way to forgive someone: Picture them as an innocent four year old child. Look at that little child in the eyes. Nurture and love that little child. Embrace them and let them go.

I did this a few years ago when I was so angry at our President. It was very healing to imagine him as an innocent little child just doing his best.
