Forgiveness is one of the biggest obstacles standing in the way of millions of souls trying to connect with their inner light from God. Several times I have done readings for people who are at still at odds with someone or something from the past. It stands in their way of ever finding true happiness while they are here on Earth. They either spend their time trying to prove themselves to someone who has moved on already or someone who is oblivious to their needs, or they spend their lives in pity for themselves and what happened to them. Poor poor me, no one cares what I've been through. Sometimes they want revenge, just to know that someone is going to get theirs! They can"t move on until they see it happen.
If they could get just a little more insight sometimes, it can make all the difference in the world. I have done many readings for people with loved ones on the other side who have wanted to know why. Why did he or she do this or that? Why did they have to leave? How could they leave me here? Why did they treat me so bad? Do they come around to check on me?
And so we ask. Many times, we get insight as to how they were treated and where their soul has been which help us to understand the attitudes they held while they were here on Earth . We get a lot of apologies and explanations as to their frame of mind while they were here. It is amazing the knowledge they instantly gain when they cross over. Knowing the soul's motivation can make it one thousand times easier to forgive. It stirs compassion and understanding. Two very important ingredients in forgiveness.
Forgiving doesn't mean you tolerate the behavior. Forgiving doesn't mean forgetting the lessons you learned and the soul growth that takes place. Remember that everyone makes choices on how to treat others and to deal with the life that they are living here. It doesn't mean you still allow these people to hurt you or that you just tolerate these negative situations in your life. It means you release the negativity and ask for healing from every hurt, taking care to remove yourself from the situation and taking steps to make it a reality. It's not okay to wallow and wander for years asking people to feel sorry for you. It's so not okay!
I forgive. Just saying it doesn"t work. You have to live it, feel it, know it, and be at peace with it. It isn"t that easy. Just consider what some are asked to forgive. Somehow they gather all their strength and courage and forgive the people who have hurt them in unthinkable ways and move on with their lives. They take the situation and find the positive and recognize the chance to grow spiritually. They get it! They know we are here to learn these lessons and to remember that help is just a belief away. They believe in miracles and in a higher power which directs and heals us in several different ways. They know how to truly forgive and move on with grace.
Forgiveness is a miracle healer. It releases the soul and renews the spirit. It lifts the weight off and sends you soaring. It can break every chain that binds you to guilt, revenge, pity, co-dependency and so on. All those things that hold you back from growing and functioning as a spiritual being.
Realize that you are a soul, you can fly to the heights when you forgive. Feel lighter than you"ve ever felt. Forgive yourself, forgive others and manifest the healing it will bring you forever.
