A guilty conscious from past mistakes, or even misdeeds, can be
destructive to your current well-being and quality of life. Here we'll
talk about what is a guilty conscious then how to let it go in order to
start living the life you really want.
What is a Guilty
A guilty conscious is a normal human response. It's the emotional
response that comes as a result of some action that we've labeled, or
even perceived, as being "bad" or "wrong."
In some cases people may even experience guilt or shame for events that
were not even under their direct control.
I've worked with a few veterans that suffered from an intense guilt
because they came home while their friends were still in
service. In one case, a returning vet was experiencing severe
after his friend had died in combat. He felt that IF he would
there his friend may not have died.
These are extreme but real examples of how someone can feel guilt for
something that isn't under their control. So now the question becomes
how to let go of these feelings of guilt.
How to Let Go of
Feelings of Guilt
When working with
clients to let go of feelings of guilt, the first step, and often the
hardest step, is having the willingness to let go of these feelings.
Once the you're willing to let go of the feelings, we then work on the
actual process of letting go.
The process of letting go of these feelings of guilt will vary with
each person depending on how that individual holds on to the feelings.
A process that I'll often choose to use for people that were never in
direct control of the event that they have guilty feelings is to first
"accept" the event.
Although almost everyone will intellectually be willing to admit to the
action, I've found that the majority of people will secretly deny their
experience when it comes to their emotions. So intellectually they are
willing to accept the event, but emotionally they remain in denial that
they were ever involved.
By going back in your mind and just fully emotionally accepting what
happened actually DID happen is often enough to release tremendous
levels of guilt.
Many people have discovered a new freedom in life just by giving their
Self the permission to feel, and then let go of these past emotionally
For many of my clients I do little more to create this safe-place where
they can experience and examine their own emotions and let go of past
hurts and feelings.
