Guilt can come wrapped in all kinds of packaging.  As I continue to grow in awareness of self, I realize the immense power this five letter word can have.  No matter how this emotion shows up in my life experience, I recognize it, own it at that moment.  I explore it to better understand it and accept and forgive myself.

Here are some affirmations to assist cultivating a healthier perspective as you process the feeling of guilt:

I am a genuinely good person filled with love and compassion for all things and life experiences.

I accept that I make choices that are the best choices for me at that given moment in time.

I rest in peace fully connected to the Divine as I release this sensation and choose to bath in the light of grace.
