The power of forgiveness to bring healing

October 12, 2022 | 20 comments


Have you ever grown resentful over the actions of another that seemed wrong and unjust?

In this video, I share how forgiveness can conquer resentment and bring healing.

Forgiveness is a powerful healer of hurt feelings and of the attitude of others.

This vlog was filmed on the Marina Dunes near Monterey, California, when my wife and I visited the area in May of 2022.

    1. Angie, what a beautiful article..

      When we forgive we are expressing the divine. The God like thinking that has no taint of mortal anguish, fretting, or resentment..

      How liberating!

      1. And thank you, Evan, for sharing that healing experience. Really wonderful to hear how in God’s good time it came full circle

  1. Thank you, Evan, for sharing your wonderful demonstration of forgiveness, and the thought process
    which made it possible to let go of any material sense of what appeared to be a man expressing
    an aggressive personal sense in some way.

    You have shared with us how it is possible to forgive anything from anyone who seems
    to be without a natural sense of caring for one another, by identifying everyone as the reflection of
    God, who is Love, as Jesus taught us. If we identify everyone from this spiritual
    standpoint, and do not allow ourselves to be influenced by what we seem to be experiencing
    materially, we can forgive, and bless the person or persons who seemed to
    need forgiveness.

    Thank you Angie for a really good article on this. The article says in one place:-:-

    “Loving others as Jesus taught demands that we see others in their true spiritual identity, the beloved child of God; and this annihilates the torments of false material sense, thus destroying the sadness and remorse that a false material perception often fosters.”

  2. Thank you for sharing. It certainly is good timing for me as I was struggling with family members who had shut me out of their lives for so long. This also had an impact on forgiving my self righteousness in the pass.
    A grateful heart.

  3. It seems like when we don’t forgive we are amplifying bad behavior by reacting in the same way. Forgiving helps to nip it in the bud, as if to say “let’s not let this go any farther, this isn’t who we are!” You are helping the situation.

    1. Point well-taken. My initial response was that the man was so shocked at what he had done, that he was speechless. Imagine the self condemnation!! Rising above personal sense to healing forgiveness is indeed loving response, blessing all.

      1. Yes, Penelope, that’s what I thought, as well in the first place, all what you mention. And how wonderful Evan’s deep and loving prayer healed the whole situation..
        Am grateful for Evan’s inspiring and healing SpiritView blog♡

  4. I needed to hear this. Your example was so helpful of how you loved the other man regardless of his actions. Thankyou!

  5. Thank you Evan for this wonderful example of forgiveness and the transforming effect on the individual forgiven! The behavior was not part of his true being and your prayer awoke both of you to the child of God present. Even when we don’t get to see the result of our prayer, we can trust it’s power to heal.
    Thank you Angie for the wonderful article which is so helpful especially if we are forgiving a loved one which can be a challenge when we are feeling resentment or sadness over an unkind act.

  6. Thank you Evan for this video. I had a family member who said some very hurtful things to me and then passed on. I see that I need to forgive them as well as anyone else who has seemed to offend me because its not their true nature. Your ideas you shared are so helpful and freeing from a sense of sadness and sorrow..

  7. This is so helpful. Thank you for sharing Evan. I love the evidence that your loving thoughts benefitted both of you. Love reflected in Love.

  8. Dear Evan, I am also very grateful for your really wonderful testimony. It is very helpful, and yes it heals my thinking from wrong thoughts about others, even friends. I could say it is simply “love, love, love”. But sometimes it seems not so easy to love someone who was not kind to us.
    Evan, I thank you very much for the details how you felt and then how you prayed about it to become peaceful with you and the other player! Wow such a perfect healing resulted later from your prayer – how divine!♡

  9. Thank you Evan. This is exactly what I needed for two current situations where I wondered if even my willingness to forgive is effective. I am now assured to keep on 70,000 times 7!!!!!! Your inspiration is so appreciated ❤️
