‘If a person doesn’t completely forgive someone for a perceived transgression, they cannot fully appreciate or truly enjoy their present life situation. Once they have chosen to hold on these stories, they unconsciously keep the negative charges associated with their painful past alive (Jerry Alan: The Hidden Teachings of Christian Mysticism).’
I’m madly in love with Jerry Alan’s book, The Hidden Teachings of Christian Mysticism (Vol. 1). The book provides many hidden Christian teachings that are never taught in the modern church. It enlightens readers about divine healing, divine energy, the body of light, churchianity, spiritual dimensions, the Apocrypha, and many other intriguing spiritual teachings.
I loved all the book’s teachings; however, I loved the teachings about forgiveness the most since they made me strive to forgive whoever hurt me.
Jerry Alan’s Teachings
According to Jerry, it’s impossible to fully enjoy the present moment if you don’t forgive because failing to forgive results in you holding on to hurtful stories that attract negative thoughts that ‘haunt your heart and mind.’
Moreover, the lack of forgiveness leads to the development of ‘survival-based thought-form patterns’ that eventually develop into suppressed painful memories. These memories grow when you face bad experiences and erupt violently when triggered.
Besides this, the failure to forgive results in negative energy fields that can have various negative effects on you, and you might ‘become embittered and stuck in a chronic grieving angry energetic feedback loop, which is usually very difficult to break free from (Jerry Alan: The Hidden Teachings of Christian Mysticism).’
Discussions & Conclusions
Jerry Alan’s teachings on forgiveness changed my thoughts on forgiveness. In the article, Forgiveness is Overrated; I wrote that it’s okay to not forgive. However, I now know that it’s not okay to not forgive because an unforgiving heart results in negativity and makes peace of mind impossible.
As well, if you don’t forgive, you’ll never stop thinking about the person who hurt you and how he hurt you. You’ll then become vulnerable to hatred, competition, and envy. You’ll drown into egoic consciousness, and it will be hard for you to achieve peak experiences or rise into higher states of consciousness that are necessary for creativity and intuitive intelligence.
For this reason, we must embrace Jerry Alan’s teachings by striving to forgive those who hurt us. We can use forgiving meditation practices to overcome painful memories and embrace forgiveness. By doing so, it will be easier for us to achieve a clear and peaceful state of mind, which usually paves the way to peak experiences or higher states of consciousness.
