Forgiveness: Forgiving The Unforgiven
What should you do when the PAST calls?
It has nothing for you!~Sandra Yancey: Founder E-Women Network
My journey of forgiveness
My husband, Richard, and I spent this past weekend cleaning out our safe and file cabinets. I must admit that I have been dreading this!
I have been in business for myself since 2004 and have kept ALL of my receipts! Yep…that’s right! It’s 2018 now and my file cabinets were bursting at the seams!
In addition to business receipts, I’m a sucker for personal memorabilia!
So, as Richard fired up the chiminea in the back yard, I started purging, while he proceeded to do the burning.
It snowed ashes in our back yard, while the gentle snow kept on falling!
In the last hours of burning with my husbands hair filled with snow and ashes, I came across a more recent letter from the Delaware Department of Justice.
It was the final correspondence that finalized the pardon of the teacher who sexually abused me from about age 12-18 years old.
In the Spring of 2017 (exactly 1 year prior to the pardon), I was notified by the Victim Services Department from the Department of Justice, that my former teacher was requesting a pardon for the Sexual Abuse felonies he committed decades ago.
Bare in mind that after I came forward at the age of 23 years old, 3 other women did too.
Unfortunately, my case was the only one that had enough evidence for conviction.
This case went to the supreme court and challenged and extended Delaware’s laws around the statue of limitations.
In the spring of 2017, I was offered the opportunity to attend the public hearing or write a “victim statement” to be read on my behalf.
Even the term “victim” triggered me and a whole ocean of feelings and turmoil arose again for me to heal, even though I thought I was done with healing. (more on that another time)
I did end up writing that statement in the Spring of 2017, so that my story still had a voice.
I want YOU to have a voice too!
Here is why this is important to you.
If the PAST calls…HANG the #$@! up! It has NOTHING for you!
What I mean is that that letter has no business being in my life.
I guess I’ve kept it for the last 6 months because when I would read it, I would get fired up, angry and passionate about taking a stand for women and helping them to find their voices.
Of course it made me ill to even look at the envelope, but I thought I needed it to keep my passion strong for helping women rise in their power.
It has taken me a few days of hanging out in my pj’s, processing my emotions and finally talking to my sister and dear friend today to realize that…
there is NOTHING GOOD coming out of the ANGER I have carried towards the pardoning of this man and the governor who granted the pardon, despite the board of directors voting in my favor.
So, after a powerful forgiveness exercise today, out in nature, with the sun on my face and God granting me GRACE…
I released and forgave these men.
For ME and YOU…I choose PEACE…
I no longer need the anger to fuel my flame!
So, I have decided to choose forgiveness and I’ll burn that letter too, but I need your help.
I truly believe that we must all Forgive if we are meant to live our BEST lives.
So, it’s time for me to burn this letter, and finally heal from my past.
This is where you come in.
Who do you need to forgive?
What do you need to let go of?
What emotions or memories keep you held in bondage?
If not NOW then WHEN?
It’s our time ladies!
This is why I am cordially inviting you to join me on the
Full Moon Forgiveness Fire Ceremony
Where: Facebook Live: Register Here
Wednesday October 24th 5PM MST
where I will burn this letter on Facebook Live and you too will burn your letter and finally release it back to where it came from.
My story does NOT define me and neither does YOURS.
You are no longer ALONE and we as sisters will gather in sisterhood and burn up our PAST.
All you need to do is to write a letter to someone you need to forgive. Maybe it’s yourself!
We will allow these letters of forgiveness or letters of grief or whatever you no longer need from your past to return to where they came from.
You have less than 1 week to find your letter or write one, so that you can stand in your power and be set free!
For the rise of YOU
For the rise of ME
For the rise of SHE~Rebecca Campbell: Light Is The New Black
