    Do you want the Long or the short version ???

    The short one..

    You've asked how-to receive forgiveness from God (the Christian God I assume).. RECEIVE being the operative word.

    1st - To forgive means 'wipe the slate clean', when someone asks for forgiveness they are asking for the relationship to be restored.

    2nd - So understanding 'forgiveness' from the Bible's perspective : you were once in relationship with GOD through ADAM and EVE. They sinned and that broke YOUR'S and GOD'S relationship apart (very important to understand that)
    That's why Jesus was sent ... John1:1,14 ... 2Corin5:21 .. 1John2:2 ... John3:16-17

    3rd - Ok, so when you ask for forgiveness you are really asking for a brand new, restored relationship .. that's if you are not a Christian.
    if you are a Christian, when you sin you are not asking for a brand new relationship but a small refreshing of the already established one (big difference!).

    4th - Now receiving it is simple if you sincerely want it.
    but before anything, it's good to know:
    The ONLY WAY TO GET it is to Believe in your heart and confess with your mouth 'Jesus is Lord' ... (just ask for forgiveness from the heart). When you ask Simply just have faith that He wants you to ask and has been waiting for that day to come ... and when you ask he will grant you forgiveness and forge a brand new relationship with you. 2Peter3:9

    The Bible says (I'll para phrase) .. those who come to Him should believe that He is(GOD), and He is the the rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

    This is the shortest I could manage .. there is much, much more that could have been included ...

    you need to join a Christian group for further guidance and support.

    Hope that helps

      From another angle you may interpret the subject of forgiveness or forgiving is often mixed up with the idea of a sin which is you think needs to be forgiven

      The word sin comes from the ancient greek sport of archery meaning that you missed the target missed the bullseye so no real biggy resume your practise keep aiming for the best

        The word "forgive" means to wipe the slate clean, to pardon, to cancel a debt.
        When we wrong someone, we seek their forgiveness in order for the relationship to be restored.
        Forgiveness is not granted because a person deserves to be forgiven.
        No one deserves to be forgiven.

        Forgiveness is an act of love, mercy, and grace.
        Forgiveness is a decision to not hold something against another person,
        despite what they have done

    Holding Unforgiveness toward someone is like - you drinking a cup of poison and expecting the other person to die.
    Holding it in can negatively influence your attitude, relationships, perspective, thinking, choices thus shaping your future ... it only really harms you.

    From what I know, forgive will be accepted if:

    1. Try hard not to give the mistake again.
    2. Very sorry and repent about what we have done

    Is forgiveness tied to judgement?

    If an action happens, and there is no judgement of the value of the experience, it is remembered for what it is but has no compelling effect on the course of your mental developments.

    If however, an action happens, and you establish a meaning, a set of values, and attach those meanings and values to the action, it then becomes judgement.

    Judgement can be positive or negative in it's effects. Based on what you want.

    You build judgements and associate judgements together not unlike a spider builds a web. You make "judgement associations" which means if you were to go and change a particular judgement memory and try to re-establish its value to you, the judgement in focus may also be influenced by related judgements and to change the judgement, might just involve changing how you believe.

    This is because associated judgements create a network of meanings you rely on for reference when you try to decide the value of any new experience. Most call this dynamic "memory" while it is also appropriately refered to as "belief"

    How does this relate to forgiveness?

    You did not enter this world with any belief or memory or judgements. When you got here, you were clean. The values you have today are a combination of what you learned from your parents combined with yourown life experiences.

    All your beliefs have been generated since you got here. To Earth.

    In order to experience peace with a relationship to something or someone, which is the motivation behind forgiveness, judgements must be adjusted first.

    If you hold in your mind and belief that a person does not love you, when they tell you they do, you may choose not to believe it, even if this experience of love totally consumes their experience.

    In this example you can see how you choose to "listen" to your judgement rather than trust the observable reality expressing itself to you.

    In this example a judgement can be said to be clouding your vision.

    Forgiveness then becomes the act of re-judging something you have judged in a way that is no longer useful to you in a way that is currently useful to you.

    An example might be a bad relationship where you made the judgements that someone did wrong to you. When you take all the emotion away and look at it however, you may be able to see the other person acting in self defense in some way, and you may be able to understand how you may have reacted in the same way given the same variables.

    Having this new clarity of thought, you can re-judge the actions taken by the other person and not hold judgement against them because you can see how you could have done the same.

    The effect of re-judging to a new set of values results in peace experienced within, and ultimately, thats what people call forgiveness...

    "Observation is an act of creation through limitations inherent in thinking"

    What you feel, what your intentions are, what you are sorry about, what you are willing to do, including how exactly sorry you are and how willing you are to make sacrifices within gigantic proportions (or not), etc... is just pertaining to you and your concept of the world, it does not matter crap to everyone else, including God. At the end of the day what truly matters is the actions you make.

    Forgiveness does not necessarily mean reconciliation with the person that hurt you, or condoning of their action. What you are after is to find peace. Forgiveness can be defined as the "peace and understanding that come from blaming that which has hurt you less, taking the life experience less personally, and changing your grievance story."

    Maybe you start by asking yourself this question:

    Why you see God as someone who is out there punishing people for their mistakes?

    You are the only one who can forgive yourself, it`s not God`s part or job...

    Simple by asking forgiveness from Him.. He said, just come to me and ask for forgiveness and I will give you eternal life.. Of course, it is pre-conditioned by the fact that you are sincerely asking for forgiveness..
