Iyanla Vanzant: Three Reasons Why Forgiveness is Good For Us
I hadn’t thought of forgiveness as an essential component of moving forward until I read Forgiveness by Iyanla Vanzant. Since I selected this book to read, I have been hearing about the importance of forgiveness from other authors concurrent with my reading. Iyanla Vanzant calls us to recognize all the places in our lives that we need to bring forgiveness to, beginning with ourselves.
The book is intended “Forgiveness is not an occasional act, it is a constant attitude. The book is intended to be worked in exercises to be completed during 30 to 60 minutes on each of 21 days.
The work of each day focuses on extending forgiveness to practically every type of relationship we could possibly have. Each chapter starts out with a “forgiveness story” written by either Iyanla Vanzant or a guest writer. These stories provide personal examples from the writers’ own lives, describing how they came to realize their need to forgive others who they had spent energy resenting. Following each chapter’s forgiveness story are the forgiveness exercises. The forgiveness exercises begin with a forgiveness prayer, followed by an exercise of writing personalized forgiveness statements tailored to the individual reader’s unique forgiveness needs in their own relationships, all leading up to the tapping sequences.
The idea in this case is to tap with your fingers on specific meridian points to clear out blocked energy attributed to negative thoughts born of unforgiveness. Forgiveness is largely set up in a workbook format. I must admit that although I read the book summary before choosing to read it, I was surprised by how many exercises there were to complete.
Having had very minimal previous exposure to tapping, Vahzant personally found the heavy reliance on tapping in the workbook portions to be overwhelming. For those of us who are tapping newbies, the book refers us to Lindsay Kenny’s website to review her manual and videos. I visited the website, but found the manual to be really long and honestly just wanted to finish my current book.
I think it might have been worthwhile to include a more comprehensive overview of the actual tapping process for the complete beginner within this book, so that it could stand on its own as a start to finish guide for someone looking to feel confident about tapping along with the workbook exercises.

I also found the workbook exercises to be cumbersome to complete since all the materials needed to do one exercise were not in one place. There is a page of about 10 reminders on the tapping process before each exercise which is helpful, but the reader is also asked to refer back to a page from the beginning of the book containing an “Emotional Trigger List” before the start of each tapping session. Since I didn’t really know what I was doing with the tapping, I also had to refer back to a page in the beginning of the book with a picture of the tapping meridian points.
In addition to that, I didn’t really understand what statements to use with the tapping. There are three bonus “Tapping Scripts” which provide the exact words to go along with the tapping, but even with these examples I still didn’t feel equipped to write out my own tapping scripts for the other more free-form tapping exercises.
I probably needed to read a whole other book on tapping before reading this book. While I enjoyed the forgiveness stories preceding each tapping exercise, when I first started reading the book I was surprised that the chapters didn’t contain more general information on the forgiveness issues people might have with their mother, father, partner, etc.
The stories were well-written and provided good insights, but I was after more generalizable statements about the different types of relationships and their common issues. While some of the chapters addressed more generalized issues, not all did. I really liked the forgiveness prayers at the beginning of each chapter, and found writing the forgiveness statements to be fun and therapeutic.
This book is probably great for someone who is already familiar with tapping. If you are new to tapping, you will likely still enjoy reading the text, just be prepared to do some tapping research on your own to help you through the exercises.
I am personally looking forward to learning more about tapping, and might revisit the exercises in this book again once I have gained some more familiarity and confidence with tapping. I received this book for free from Hay House Publishing for this review. The opinion in this review is unbiased and reflects my honest judgment of the product. Dec 18, Lisa Niver rated it really liked it Shelves: Reading this book helped me to think in new ways about Forgiveness.
I was not really interested in the tapping parts of the book but appreciated the reframe on forgiving.
This book inspired me to write an article: I did not think my money needed love or attention but she says it is time to take “responsibility for our money, our stories and our lives.
When I was home recently after being away for over a year, I did open all the mail from various banks and institutions and put it in a pile, but did not actually read any of it. A month later, I received a letter that due to non-response, one of my accounts had been moved. I realized it was time to act. I counted up and realized I had eight separate retirement accounts at five different locations. As Northrup would say, I needed a date with my money.
After each job move and sabbatical, I considered consolidating the accounts, but it seemed challenging or was not my priority. However, when I wanted enough money to travel, I was able to create an additional income stream and save in order to get what I wanted.
I agree with Northrup that when we say: If you really wanted it, you would figure out a way to get it. I nearly felt that I would need to go back to school and join my friend, Nancy, at her new business management courses in order to manage it all.
But every single time I got frustrated, I simply picked up the phone and asked for help. As I vanaznt through forgiceness the accounts, it became fun as I realized I had over three times the amount I had originally figured. Northrup says, forgivenses you can’t see your value, the world doesn’t give value back.
Forgiveness: 21 Days to Forgive Everyone for Everything
I realized I did not need to go back to school, I simply needed to focus. Whether it is a breakdown in a relationship or a lack of financial substance or a failure to fulfill a dream or goal, there must be ‘someone’ to blame. I blamed the companies for not helping me enough. I realized that I did not need to blame anyone, I just asked for help and did the task one step at a time.
The process is ongoing as there will be more hoops to jump through before all my money arrives at my favorite institution. I am content that my recent date with my money went so well and plan to organize more moments in the future to focus on what is valuable to me.

I was really starting to get into EFT tapping when I found this book, so I was glad to see the whole book uses tapping to let go of negative emotions and forgive. A lot of the complaints I have seen around this book are in regards to EFT seeming a little weird. The more I research is, listen to people’s stories about it, and use it myself, the more I think EFT is an important tool in becoming healthier and happier.
I can’t say that I have forgiven everything and everyone magically in 21 days, l I was really starting to get into EFT tapping when I found this book, so I was glad to see the whole book uses tapping to let go of negative emotions and forgive. I can’t say that I have forgiven everything and everyone magically in 21 days, like the title suggests, but I do have a better process to work on forgiving. The best part about this book is that you have to interact with it.
Each chapter starts with a story to set up the subject and then you have to take action and forgive the subject yourself.
Your mother, father, girlfriends, boyfriends, etc are all covered in this book. If you like Iyanla, then I think you will like this book.
