“When the pain of your past follows you into the future, it is time to stop, reflect and make a choice. Do you continue to repeat the past hurts with your obsessive thoughts, or forgive, allowing yourself to step into a future free from anger, resentment, bitterness and guilt? The choice is yours.” ~ Lori Rubenstein
Forgiveness is the difference between struggling over, around or through the issues that can create near paralysis or simply having them dissolve before your eyes. And it is true that YOU have complete control over the process. It is our choice to practice forgiveness and to learn HOW TO FORGIVE. It doesn’t depend on the participation of anyone else. Building your forgiveness muscle is imperative for healthy relationships.
Lori’s Book, Forgiveness, Heal Your Past and Find the Peace You Deserve teaches Lori’s 4-step Living with Forgiveness Process. This process teaches you how to forgive, step by step, with examples, personal life lessons, and includes bonuses like meditations, visualizations, and affirmations. Additionally, while forgiveness is a personal journey, there is also guide for book groups, so you can learn how to forgive and grow with a group of friends if you’d like.

Forgive Daily! It’s a practice highly prescribed by those in successful relationships. The Living with Forgiveness process makes it easy… Certain attributes are vital in all healthy relationships, and love, while necessary, is not sufficient. A conscious spiritual partnership includes:
- Speaking your truth with Grace
- Listening to your partner with spiritual ears
- Creating and respecting each other’s boundaries
- Compromising with a loving heart, not with a martyr’s frustration
- Giving 100%, not 50%, both of you
- Committing to not making assumptions
- Knowing your mate’s love language and filling their love tank often
- Forgiving often, as you would like to be forgiven
Unforgiveness blocks out your ability to be the best you can be. Having a healthy relationship is all about personal self growth and the power of Forgiveness, of ourselves and others, and is a powerful tool for our soul’s progression.
“Lessons are not forced upon us. We are co-conspirators and co-designers of our personal growth experiences here on earth.” ~ Lori Rubenstein

Just a short note to let you know I have taken forgiveness classes in many cities. Your steps to forgiveness are the BEST!!! With the questions and tapping I got more out of your class than all the other books, lectures and classes. Thank you for designing a great “get-to-the-point” forgiveness sheet, that is superior to all others. Aileen Rose, Cottonwood, AZ
Just wanted you to know how much your Forgiveness Course has helped me coming to terms with the behavior of a close relative of mine. The great thing about this course was that it forced me to ask myself some serious questions why I found it so difficult to forgive that person. Some of the questions are hard but necessary. I was able to admit that I felt I could not forgive until that person had apologized to me. Well – I managed to forgive her even though I know she will probably never apologize, and I realized suddenly that this has brought me peace and emotional calmness when I as much as briefly think about her. I highly recommend your course to all who have issues in their lives which trouble them. Edith Carter, Roseburg, Oregon
