The noise was deafening and I had no idea what what was happening, however what I did know is that I was terrified. The sound of breaking glass, the roar of bricks falling, the odor of smoke.
I was 10 years old and I jump out of my bed screaming for my mother while running down the stairs and I saw right away that a bomb has exploded in the front of my home. I continue to scream for my Mom I cannot find her, and then suddenly I stop screaming I am becoming completely silence with no tears, no fear, I sense only the present moment with time standing completely still. I have noticed a man and he is standing across the road from my home, he is wearing a beige whitish coat and he is smoking a cigarette while laughing at me, he is joyful and I realize he is the bomber.
Our eyes meet and he smirks at me, I know he is enjoying my terror and my anger starts to engage. I thought how could you do this I am a child how dare you, I hate you. He then starts to walk up the street with his head turned as he is still looking at me and he is enjoying my anger, I feel myself giving him my power, my unforgiveness and in this stillness I knew that if I did not forgive him in that moment he would take me up the street with him, he would own me for the rest of my life. I choose to forgive him, I choose not give him any part of me, I choose me fully
He then shrugs his shoulders and turned his back to me flicking his cigarette unto the road. I then hear the police sirens, the sound my mothers voice and a sense of deep calmness sweeps over me.
I never saw him again or even felt the need to find out who he was however I have never forgotten him, I send him love, I send his family love, he taught me I had a deep power within me, he taught me to live my life in the present moment (something that I still feel a challenge with at times lol) and mostly he taught me sacred forgiveness.
I send him my sacred forgiveness and my love.
Look inside yourself and feel if you might choose to forgive someone or something that you feel does not deserve your sacred forgiveness.
Set yourself free
