In this short affirmation-based meditation with Deepak Chopra, M.D., you can use his positive words to shift your thoughts and action.
For many of us, our barrier to forgiveness is not laziness or pride; it comes from our lack of belief in our own ability to be forgiving or loving. As we know, we actualize what we tell ourselves: When we speak nicely to ourselves, we manifest more beauty and peace; when we speak negatively to ourselves, we are more likely to emit negativity towards others. In this short affirmation-based meditation with Deepak Chopra, M.D., you can use his positive words to shift your thoughts and actions. “I am capable of love and forgiveness” becomes not only a mantra for cutting through the excess layers of the mind but also an intention.

So much of the battle of action is the intention that precedes it. Repetition of intention is a useful way of turning desire for change into a habitual pattern of openness and love. Next time you are having a hard time moving on from a situation or problem, use this beautiful meditation to reverse your notions that you won’t be able to forgive or forget. You are capable of anything you put your mind to, so long as you are willing to believe in yourself.
