Love is the true law of attraction.

 

I was always of the opinion that what we bring into our world is the result of our thinking and, in turn, action – cause and effect. There is much said these days about the law of attraction – the universe rearranging itself as a result of what we hold in our minds, or the ...

Forgiveness frees the forgiver as well as the forgiven.

We have all been hurt by people in the past. Holding onto this hurt keeps us in the past and always a victim of the perpetrator. To forgive is not that easy and will often be rejected as not an option, but it is a choice. How can you forgive someone who abuses ...
