Over the past few years, one of the common re-occurrences in my readings for others is that there is a need for people to recognize the importance of letting certain things go… hurt feelings, resentments, anger and the like.
Within my own journey, through a revelation received via a dream, I realized that if I wanted to evolve and also free myself from the burdensome situation I found myself in, I had to first free myself from my own mind and it’s limited, constricted way of looking at things. I realized that I was not evolving or going anywhere by remaining in the state of mind that took me in circles instead of at least on an upwards spiral.
For me the first step was forgiving. I began forgiving people I felt did me wrong; not only current situations but stuff I knew I had buried from years past. Then I worked on forgiving myself as well; just as important! When we forgive ourselves and have made necessary adjustments to our own patterns of behavior, then we are more likely to be freed from the need to experience the negative karma that may have been accrued through the action… especially if the other party involved has forgiven as well.
What is Forgiveness?
Forgiving someone does not mean you are condoning them, or excusing them, it means that you are releasing them from the karmic ties that bind them to you in a negative way. A simple way of explaining what forgiveness is about, is to say that in forgiveness you give up resentment of or against someone. That’s all it is, and yet it can be one of the most difficult things to do at times. This is a higher form of love for others, and is also for your own personal well being. Whatever retribution is due them will be made manifest, however it need not come through your own attachment to the situation. Everything we do is imprinted in the akasha or universal energy that stores all that is happening, has happened or will be. So anything that is needing to be balanced off, will be, in it’s appropriate timing.
Why is Forgiveness Necessary?
While in session with people, I have discovered a few clients that expressed their honest lack of interest in forgiving anyone! They felt comfortable harboring the resentment that had become a part of their identity. We all have this right to choose whether we will lighten our energetic load or continue to stay heavy with ill feelings; becoming more and more like the ‘walking wounded’. But many of us will make the choice to forgive, because it is
a choice that is not only better for ourselves personally; spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically ~ but a choice that will ripple its effect into the folds of all humanity, as we are all one, and the more of us that take a stand for the more uplifting and freeing choices – the more it will lighten the load of humanity as a whole.
Every cell membrane (memory brain) recalls all events of your life, and therefore will hold the particular negatively charged events just as well. This negatively charged energy will then be lingering in your energy field – attracting more negativity of like nature.
Making the decision to forgive becomes easier when we realize that
holding on to ill feelings towards someone literally creates an ill state of being within ones’ own self; be it physically, emotionally, mentally, or spiritually. Not forgiving someone creates a psychic bond to that person which revolves on what the Buddhists call ‘the wheel of karma’; which continues to spin around yet again, and again, with you still on it – until you decide to jump off of the wheel! When you forgive you have jumped off the wheel (whilst the one who had mistreated you will likely still be on the wheel! This means they will get theirs without you being involved and helping to steer the wheel; which means you are freed up from that endless cycle of karma).
How Do We Forgive?
Forgiveness comes firstly by making a choice to let go and release old, stuck energy that many people do not even realize is there. As someone who is dedicated to helping others to release and let go of things that do not serve their highest good, I have studied a few different methods that help us to forgive more effectively… From ways that allow one to explore forgiveness by themselves – with no extra assistance, to methods that do better with someone there with you to help guide you through the process; if anyone is interested feel free to message me.
