We found an ancient blessing that we thought was quite beautiful.

Project Forgive is non-religious and non-partisan and thought some of our followers would receive this ancient blessing as very healing.

I personally loved it and shared it with my daughter. I hope you enjoy it.

It’s called the “Ancient Nahuatl Blessing” which is comprised of honor, forgiveness, and generational heritage. The blessing also addresses affection, detachment and liberation.

The blessings’ roots were created in the Nahuatl language, spoken in Mexico.

Nahuatl was the adopted language of the Aztecs, who ruled Mexico between the 14th and 16th centuries before they were conquered by the Spaniards. It is still spoken by nearly 1.5 million Mexicans, but otherwise is largely unknown.

Ancient Nahuatl Blessing

“I release my parents from the feeling that they have already failed me.

I release my children from the need to bring pride to me; that they may write their own ways according to their hearts that whisper all the time in their ears.

I release my partner from the obligation to complete myself. I do not lack anything, I learn with all beings all the time.

I thank my grandparents and forefathers who have gathered so that I can breathe life today.

I release them from past failures and unfulfilled desires, aware that they have done their best to resolve their situations within the consciousness they had at that moment.

I honor you, I love you and I recognize you as innocent.

I am transparent before your eyes, so they know that I do not hide or owe anything other than being true to myself and to my very existence, that walking with the wisdom of the heart, I am aware that I fulfill my life project [purpose], free from invisible and visible family loyalties that might disturb my Peace and Happiness, which are my only responsibilities.

I renounce the role of savior (martyr), of being one who unites or fulfills the expectations of others.

Learning through, and only through, LOVE, I bless my essence, my way of expressing, even though somebody may not understand me.

I understand myself, because I alone have lived and experienced my history; because I know myself, I know who I am, what I feel, what I do and why I do it.

I respect and approve [of] myself.

I honor the Divinity in me and in you.

We are free.”

Have a beautiful rest of your day,
Joy, Dr. Shawne
