Forgiveness Brings Inner Joy and Inner Peace - Guest Post by Dr. Zhi Gang Sha

Mother Earth is transitioning. You can very clearly see more and greater challenges happening on Earth, including natural and human-made disasters, war, climate change, disease, economic challenges, and more. Why are these challenges happening? They are due to bad karma.

For centuries and millennia, humanity has created huge bad karma by harming each other and Mother Earth. The Divine shared with me a one-sentence secret of karma that is important for you to learn:  

Karma is the root cause of success and failure in every aspect of life.

Karma is the record of services. Karma is also named “deed,” “virtue,” or “te” (Chinese, pronounced duh) in different spiritual teachings. Karma can be divided into good karma and bad karma. Good karma is the record of one’s good services in all lifetimes, present and past. Good karma includes offering unconditional love, forgiveness, care, compassion, sincerity, honesty, generosity, kindness, purity, and all other kinds of good service to humanity and all souls. Bad karma is the record of one’s unpleasant services in all lifetimes to humanity and all souls, such as killing, harming, taking advantage of others, cheating, stealing, lying, complaining, and all other kinds of unpleasant service.
Karma is a universal law.

According to karmic law:

Good karma can bring one rewards in every aspect of life, including:
health, relationships, finances, intelligence, parents, and children.

Bad karma can bring one lessons in every aspect of life, including:
health, relationships, finances, intelligence, parents, and children.

For centuries and millennia, humanity has accumulated a huge amount of bad karma from:
. killing in multinational and civil political, religious, and ethnic wars
. testing and using nuclear weapons
. causing all kinds of harm to humanity, animals, and nature
. depleting and wasting natural resources
. greed
. cheating
. stealing
. and much more

Karma is cause and effect. The examples above are part of the root cause of the natural disasters, economic stresses, and other challenges on Mother Earth now.

Billions of people are concerned about Mother Earth’s transition. How can we redirect Mother Earth’s transition? How can we reduce the natural disasters and other challenges for humanity and Mother Earth?

Because karma is the root cause of Mother Earth’s transition, the solution is to clear bad karma. If millions and billions of people knew how to self-clear bad karma, Mother Earth’s transition would be softened beyond comprehension.
How can a person clear their bad karma?

The most important and powerful technique is a regular forgiveness practice. Apply the Four Power Techniques® that I have taught in all my previous books to self-clear bad karma: Body Power, Sound Power, Mind Power, and Soul Power.

*Body Power is to use special hand and body positions for healing, rejuvenation, longevity, and life transformation.
*Sound Power is to chant sacred mantras, Divine Soul Songs, Tao Songs, or special vibratory sounds for healing and rejuvenation.
*Mind Power is creative visualization.
*Soul Power is to say hello. It is to invoke the Divine, Tao, Heaven, Mother Earth, and countless planets, stars, galaxies, and universes, as well as all kinds of spiritual fathers and mothers on Mother Earth and in all layers of Heaven, to request their help for healing, rejuvenation, and transformation of relationships and finances.

We will apply the Four Power Techniques now to self-clear bad karma:

Body Power:  Sit up straight with your feet flat on the floor and your back free and clear. You may also stand up straight but relaxed, with your knees slightly bent. Put one palm on your lower abdomen below the navel. Put your other palm over your heart. Forgiveness must be from the heart. Five thousand years ago, traditional Chinese medicine shared the wisdom that the heart houses the mind and the soul. Be sure to ask for and offer forgiveness from the heart.

There are many great teachings for the spiritual journey from different religions and all kinds of spiritual groups on Mother Earth. I do not teach religion, but I respect all great teachings. I believe true spiritual teaching always teaches people how to purify the heart.

Soul Power: Say hello. Dear my beloved heart, I love you. I am honored to do a forgiveness practice. Thank you.
Forgiveness practice is a practice to self-clear our bad karma. We do not need to clear our good karma. We want to keep our good karma in order to receive blessings in health, relationships, finances, and more. To clear karma is to clear bad karma that was created by the mistakes we made in past lifetimes and in this lifetime. Mistakes create a spiritual debt. We owe the people and souls we have hurt or harmed. To clear bad karma is to have our spiritual debt forgiven.

Continue the forgiveness practice by applying more Soul Power:

Dear all the souls who were harmed by any of the mistakes I have made in this lifetime and all my previous lifetimes, 
Dear all the souls, including human beings, animals, the environment, and Mother Earth, who were harmed by any of the mistakes my ancestors have made in and all of their lifetimes,       I love you.  I sincerely apologize to all the souls we have harmed. Please forgive my ancestors and me. In order to receive your total forgiveness, I will serve unconditionally. Thank you.

If millions and billions of people truly understood the significance of the forgiveness practice, knew how to do the forgiveness practice, and actually did the forgiveness practice every day, humanity’s karma would be transformed. Mother Earth’s transition would be softened.

When doing a forgiveness practice, it is important to say the words sincerely and humbly from the heart. Do not expect to simply say the words and be forgiven easily. It may not be easy at all to receive forgiveness from some of the souls you and your ancestors have harmed. Your mistakes could have been huge; the harm could have been very cruel.
Continue from the bottom of your heart:

I will serve humanity.
I will serve animals.
I will serve society.
I will serve Mother Earth in order to receive forgiveness.
Thank you for your forgiveness.

This is how to ask for forgiveness for your mistakes. You must include your ancestors because each of us carries part of our ancestors’ karma, both good and bad. This is called ancestral karma. Think of it as your genetic or inherited karma. It includes not only your ancestors in this lifetime, but also your ancestors in all of your past lifetimes. This could include millions of souls.

Forgiveness practice has two parts. In one part you ask for forgiveness for all of the mistakes that you and your ancestors have made in all of your previous lifetimes and in this lifetime. In the other part you and your ancestors offer forgiveness to all souls who have hurt, harmed, or taken advantage of you or your ancestors in all lifetimes.

These two sides of forgiveness are vital to bring love, peace, and harmony to you, your loved ones, your community, your city, your society, your country, and Mother Earth.

Now let us do the second part of the forgiveness practice where you and your ancestors offer forgiveness to others:
Dear all people and all souls who have harmed me and my ancestors in any of our lifetimes,
We love you.
We forgive you totally.
We are honored to offer you our forgiveness.
Thank you.
Mind Power. Visualize the golden light of forgiveness embracing you, your ancestors, and all the souls you have invoked.
Sound Power. Chant for a few minutes silently or aloud, but always from your heart:
Forgiveness …

Do it now for three minutes.
Then chant or sing silently or aloud:
I forgive you.
You forgive me.
Bring love, peace, and harmony.
Bring love, peace, and harmony.
 I forgive you.
You forgive me.
Bring love, peace, and harmony.
Bring love, peace, and harmony.

I forgive you.
You forgive me.
Bring love, peace, and harmony.
Bring love, peace, and harmony.
Hao! (Thank You) Hao! (Thank You)  Hao! (Thank You)

Forgiveness brings inner joy and inner peace. Forgiveness self-clears your bad karma. The benefits you can receive are unlimited.
