Atonement for negative karma

I recognize that my actions have harmed others in the past.

Through selfishness,

I have created and amplified traumas,

Some of which may live on to this day.

These will need to be healed through time,

Some of them perhaps living on to future generations.

For my part,

I recognize that my own harmful actions come from intergenerational traumas,

Wounds that my ancestors were not able to heal and live on in me.

We are all of us living as embodiments of our own pasts,

And futures.

For this reason, I forgive myself my humanity

And wish on those I have negatively impacted this same forgiveness and healing.

May all beings reach their light as beings free from trauma,

Free from the negative stories incurred by unhealed wounds.

May all beings rest in the light of spirit.
