7 Techniques To Let Go Off The Past (Part 3)
Correction – Memories inside the soul are like imprints or impressions on the soul. Some impressions are deep, some are not. Negative past experiences leave very deep negative impressions or scars on the soul, which sometimes take a lot of time to heal and sometimes an entire birth can be spent without them getting healed. Negative past experience imprints and negative emotions like anger, hatred, fear, pain, guilt etc. are closely linked. So, correcting the self or incorporating positive sanskars fills the spiritual self with positive impressions. This, over a period of time, nullifies the effect of these negative impressions and as a result, the related negative memories.
Donation – Donation can be simply defined as the distribution of the invisible attainments one has experienced through spiritual self-transformation, to others. It helps one receive blessings or positive energy of those whom we donate to and gives life a focused positive purpose, both of which help us immensely in forgetting our past. People who live only for themselves will find it more difficult to forget their past as compared to ones who spend a lot of time for others. Giving happiness to others helps us in forgetting our own sorrows.
Interaction – The more we interact with and remain in the company of positive minded people and have positive conversations with them, we give and receive positive energy and the more our past gets erased from our consciousness. Spirituality teaches us to look inwards and experience introvertness, which we haven’t experienced for a long time. At the same time, spirituality also teaches us to keep a balance between looking inwards and outwards. Composed and balanced introvertness and extrovertness and healthy, happy relationships with virtuous people help us remain more in a present consciousness, not allowing the mind to drift too much into the past.
