Forgiveness Works:
Health, Healing, Love, Contribution

If you are wondering how well forgiveness works, I am here to share a few powerful videos of people who forgave who you would never expect to forgive.

But first, let us review:  what is forgiveness?  The definition of forgiveness can be found in Merriam Webster's definition of forgiveness.

Basically, you stop feeling anger or resentment towards someone

Consider, when you hang onto that anger and resentment, it is like eating poison hoping the other person will die

Is it really that dramatic?  Well, maybe not.  However, you really do more harm to yourself than to the other person.

Consider, whenever you are feeling an emotion, you brain releases a lot of chemicals.  If you experience joy, the body releases certain chemicals. 

When you feel anger and resentment, you body releases a different set of chemicals.  These chemicals from anger and resentment can actually impact your health and your ability to manifest.  The impact of not forgiving is talked about in the story in the next section.


This is a story of forgiveness where a man's son was killed.  It takes a look at what it took for him to forgive the young teenager who killed his son. 

He realized that there were two victims here.  One was his son, and the other was the teenager who did the killing. 

When you watch the video, you can see what happens in the end.  The end of the story is very moving.  Please watch this powerful snippet on how forgiveness worksForgiveness in an Unforgiving World.


You can get a powerful demonstration of how forgiveness works with Immaculee Ilibagiza's story.  She was part of the Tutsi tribe where many were slaughtered during the Rwandan genocide. 

Most of Immaculee's family was killed in the genocide.  After the genocide was over, she was able to go speak to the man who killed some of her family members.  She forgave him. 

She has also made friends with people in the Hutu tribe, the tribe that was responsible for the genocide.

In many ways, her journey of forgiveness was so healing that she thrived as a human being.  Her story has inspired others to forgive people in their lives. 

If she had sought revenge or held onto her anger, we would never have heard her story.  We would never know what is possible through forgiveness.

Forgiveness is a story of love.  But only when you release the anger and fear can you know peace in your heart.  If you want peace in your heart, please watch this video:  The story of Immaculee Ilibagiza


This is about a  story of forgiveness that a woman Jean Lloyd shares.  She does not call what she went through forgiveness.

You will not hear the word forgiveness in the video.  However, it is truly clear that she forgives people on multiple occasions. 

And, when she forgives, she is able to manifest the contribution that she is for people.  She is a clear demonstration of how forgiveness works and the miracle of forgiveness.

Before I get too far, let me start with a few words about Jean.

Jean is one of those powerhouses that I had the honor and privilege to know.  She trained me in leadership programs as well as a few courses.  The woman is absolutely committed to people's freedom:  the freedom of the human spirit.  And, there is no denying that. 

She also worked as a consultant in South Africa for a few years.  If ever there were situations where forgiveness and human compassion were needed, it was among the people she worked with.

After she is done with this story, she creates a call to action for people.  This is what this site is all about, to get connected to something that you choose to manifest

If you want to have the best outcome when you set out to manifest something, forgiveness is very powerful.  Forgiveness shall set you free.

And, look.  You can make this one as big or small as you want.  Please watch this video to the end, and then try out the exercise at the end:  Sustainable Happiness: From Someday to Everyday.
