The Wisdom of Forgiveness

forgivenessHow are you? Truly — how is your heart? Have you been diving deep and taking tender care of your own being? What does your heart need most these days? How are you feeling physically, mentally & emotionally?

We are fast approaching the darkest days of the year and as we do so our hours become more yin in nature and the call to make our way inward and introspect and care for self in a quiet, deep, dark, beautiful, all-self-knowing-way becomes stronger and stronger.

It is normal to feel more emotional in these colder, slower, darker days.

It is normal to crave warmer foods and more sleep.

The divine feminine beckons us to sit with the heart and lean in to the divine messages that she whispers to us in the quiet moments of days-passing-by.

We are coming into the season of inward work — the season of calling on divine self-care rituals that are slow and soft and deeply nourishing.

I am sending you all of the love — thank you for being here with me, for trusting me and creating connection with me !

forgivenessheartThe main Theme of November is around FORGIVENESS….

This is the big letting go, the final completion, the cutting it loose.

We are weary of the fight, the blame, the crisis, the judgment, the debt, being victims, feeling owed, the anxiety, worry, and stress.

We desperately wish for a gentler more compassionate way of beauty and balance and are finally willing to do whatever it takes to get there.

Forgiveness is a big piece we are working with this month and in the months to come. The actual definition of forgiveness is to give way so something can be free to move forward. Without forgiveness there is no moving forward. To the extent that you are not able to forgive yourself or others for what “they have done to you”, “you have done to yourself, or, ”you have done to others”, you are holding yourself and others hostage and no one is free to move forward. We are in a time of tremendous potential for movement forward and the raising of consciousness but if we cannot forgive, we go nowhere.

What people do not realize is that the choice to not forgive can actually create karma. If you have the option and the opportunity to forgive something or someone and you do not take it, choosing instead to hold someone or something hostage in your expectation of a payback, you can create some karma for yourself in the withholding of that freedom. Some food for thought….

Forgiving something does not mean that you agree with it or condone it. The action or situation can still be very wrong, but forgiving it cuts it loose so that the energy of it is no longer attached to you.  You neutralize the charge so that you are no longer hooked into the debt of payback. Sometimes we hold onto old grudges for years and years and maybe even lifetimes, not even remembering exactly what started it. On a greater more global scale there is a need for forgiveness between countries, races, the masculine and the feminine.

Blame, grudges, judgement, hopelessness and depression are all symptoms of an inability to forgive. We hide behind the bad parents that did not love us the way they should have, or the boss that never saw our potential and wasted years of our talents, or the relationship that never gave us what we wanted, or all those that took advantage of us without the proper honor, payment or acknowledgement. These are all the logjams in our psyches that are keeping us at a lower vibration and from being free to move forward.

If you forgive those who “done you wrong”, you are not only freeing yourself but freeing them as well. And if you don’t truly forgive them, you may be stuck with them on the karmic wheel for future lifetimes. It is better to clean it up now.
