Five Common Forgiveness Myths

Forgiveness is about freedom.

But many times people think it’s about denying their lived experiences, or letting people off the hook, or abandoning perfectly healthy boundaries.


In this video, I talk about some of the myths I’ve encountered as a minister and as someone teaching forgiveness for the last 5 years. (Click here to join the Forgive the Shit Out of Your Life course – it’s a free 30-day forgiveness email course.)

And below is the White Light Meditation. Enjoy!



The Shadow Side of Gratitude

Many times when we start a spiritual practice, we do so with the very best of intentions.

We want to align with our highest good, health, wealth, and well-being.

We want to invite peace.

We want to create a sense of connection.

But sometimes these spiritual practices can unwittingly turn into something that do the opposite – they rob us of our joy, create a mountain of “shoulds,” and end up making us feel disconnected.

A gratitude practice has many benefits, including feeling more peace and well-being, but how do you know if it’s getting out of control?


Fear and Your Calling

Someone asked me how I’m so fearless, and truth be told, it’s not the first time I’ve gotten this question.

I have a naturally reserved way of being that lends itself to appearing like confidence.

Even when I’m internally freaking out, I come off as composed, measured, steady and “together.”

My heart can be racing and I’ll sound calm – that’s just a natural part of my own way of being.

But guess what?

I have a diagnosed anxiety disorder and PTSD.

I don’t talk about them publicly much because they really aren’t the most interesting thing about me, and I don’t take the emotions personally.
