Today I was asked by one of our dear listeners to speak about the topic of “betrayal.” Here’s what I know…

Betrayal. What is it? And what to do about it…

From my own experiences, it’s one of the most horrific feelings. The feeling of betrayal!

When I looked up the technical definition of “betrayal,” I found the word: “faithlessness.”

Betrayal erodes trust and faith.

Did you know that “faith is the substance of that which we hope for?”


Restoring HOPE restores both faith and trust.


You must…

1. BE…

How are YOU being to YOU?

2. Be forgiving.

3. Be hopeful.

– Believe.

The antidote to the “unbelievable” is your belief.

– Desire.

– Trust.

Be faithful.



Grab a couple pieces of paper and a pen.

Write out how you’ve been betrayed.

How have you been betrayed? Write out every single detail.

Then put a big line through it and write: I forgive you, and I forgive me. I now release you, and I now release me.

Fold up your paper.

Burn it, chop it into small pieces, or flush it…whatever you choose to do.

Do it today.

When you do. Take a deep breath, and allow whatever it is that you put on that paper to go…release it with a lightness and love that’ll allow your heart and soul to be free.

Congratulations! I’m so proud of you…

I’d LOVE to connect with you, and celebrate YOU and your S.O.L.
