Energy and Forgiveness

Need more energy? Forgiveness is now taking its place as an important issue in healthcare. Forgiveness research is relatively new, but it has grown exponentially over the past decade. Studies have shown that there is not just a psychology underlying forgiveness but a physiology as well. Forgiveness is good for one’s health! A society that cannot forgive loses its heart; a civilization devoid of forgiveness may eventually cease to exist. Studies have found that when giving the gift of forgiveness, altruistic motives hold greater benefits than do self-interested motives. Forgiveness may even impact your energy levels. According to the authors of Executive EQ, through forgiveness, you can convert suffering into new energy to move forward. It partly depends on choice and partly on compassion but the process can release trapped energy for use elsewhere.
