Regret is a crippler of two of your spiritual gifts, judgement and zeal. In judgement, it feeds on poor choices, but in the case of zeal, it pulls the focus from "go forward" to "look back". In order to feel the affirmative impulse of the universe, you must focus forward. The Kingdom of Heaven is the realm of ever-expanding ideas, and to experience the Kingdom of Heaven, you must involve yourself in the process of expansion. Heaven is not a place. It is a process and an experience for you to enjoy. Your desire to expand in consciousness is motivated by Spirit as zeal.
With the use of any of your spiritual gifts, release is an important factor. Very often forgiveness is involved with release. With no forgiveness or release, you can't be free of past memories and regret. All forgiveness involves forgiving yourself in some way. Forgive yourself and still yourself toward zeal so you may be propelled beyond limited beliefs and fears.
