Dear Ones, we understand that to give forgiveness after you have been wronged is a very difficult thing to do. You understand that it is beneficial to you to do so, but it can be hard to know just how to do it. We wish to shed some light on the act of forgiveness.
Forgiveness, simply put, is dissolving the energetic cord that keeps you bound to a painful event. It is taking whatever gifts came from the experience and letting the rest go. It is deciding to leave victimhood behind and create a brand new story for yourself. It is choosing to be stronger, healed, and free from the past.
Forgiveness is not saying that what happened to you was ok. It is acknowledging that what happened then was not acceptable but you are choosing not to let the energy of what was unwanted affect the fresh energy of your Now moment. It is the empowered act of assuming responsibility for your own healing and closure.
Forgiveness is a profound act of faith and trust in the universe. It shows that you believe in a fair system of universal checks and balances that respond energetically to what is put out, beyond what you may be aware of from your vantage point. It acknowledges that the experience had purpose, that it somehow served you and the expansion of your soul.
If you have ever been forgiven for something, you understand the burden it lifts from you. It is freeing, both to you and to the other person. It releases you from guilt and shame of the event into a greater expression of yourself. It releases the event that tied you to another in a lower vibrating energy, and allows everyone to move on. Forgiving yourself for anything you wish you would have done better, also has the same effect.
Forgiveness does not mean you keep yourself in a space of being victimized by others. It simply means that, as an adult, and as your own loving guide, parent, and best friend, you are choosing to dissolve the ties to your victimhood, and to move beyond what hurt you. It is reclaiming your energy, your wholeness, and creating anew, with deeper wisdom, understanding, and freedom to express yourself in new, empowered ways. ~Archangel Gabriel
