Greetings and best wishes.
There is a lot written and spoken about forgiveness and much has been done to bring it to people. It is always easy to tell others to forgive, but it is more difficult to digest it and do it oneself. Sometimes help is needed to process it.
Most of us have probably had experiences where we were hurt in one way or other and thought someone was the cause of it. The pain we suffered was devastating. And the memory of it stays with us. That is what is hurting now: the memory of it. And that is what stops us from forgiving. By keeping the memory alive we are keeping the pain alive and increasing it.
We are all universal beings. We are made out of the same energy. Yes, we are pure energy. Has it occurred to you that you have created that situation? Not now, but even before you came to the planet. We are cocreators of our lives, whether we believe it or not. Our beliefs are not going to change this universal fact. Let us look at the positive outcome of the situation. What have you learned from the incident? There are always lessons to be learned in every situation of our lives. It is up to us to see them and learn from them or play the victim and aggressor game and carry on ignoring what is right in front of us.
It would benefit us all if we were to check within ourselves and realise who we are and who everyone is. Then, we would see we are all ONE. Whatever we wish for others will come to us. That feeling against whomever did or said something to us is hurting us not them. Yes, they will feel the impact of our thoughts and feelings, but the ones who will get the bigger blow is US. When we forgive, there is a feeling of relief. It is like someone has taken a big weight from our shoulders. We feel free and at peace. Forgiveness is a blessing.
I have helped people who were hurt and by forgiving they have healed themselves. By not forgiving we are hurting ourselves and the world. The pain becomes chronic and it will end up being an illness. Remember: anything we think will manifest in us and in others who may pick up our wavelength, our vibrational output.
How do you want to see the world? Do you want to help to make it wonderful for all of us? Start by forgiving yourself; then it will be easier to forgive others. Bear in mind: whatever you do to yourself you do to the world; and whatever you do to others and the world you do to yourself. The choice is yours.
I wish you love, peace, freedom and joy.
