Forgive if You Want to Stay Healthy

The results of a new study suggest that people with forgiving natures may have lower blood pressure than less forgiving folks. Adopting a more forgiving stance toward others may have important health benefits. Forgiveness may represent an important way to reduce your automatic, physiological arousal to interpersonal stressors. Anyone who has done the emotional work we promote will know that forgiving others authentically is one of the major keys to optimum health.

A few years ago I heard a truth that is appropriate to repeat here: Not forgiving someone is like swallowing poison and expecting the other person to die. The only person you are hurting is yourself. Unfortunately, many of us have serious blocks that limit our ability to forgive at the deeper subconscious, authentic levels. In my experience, bioenergetic techniques are the only ones that effectively address this. Prayer and journaling are two effective examples of bioenergetic techniques.
