This week I pulled out the Angel Card – forgiveness. My first thought was forgiveness should have been the first card I pulled out. My reasoning behind this is that if we can’t forgive then there is a chance that no further growth will take place.
If we have no forgiveness for our mistakes, slights and/or hurts from others, we can get caught up in a bitter mind-set of blaming and being victims. I can’t see growth happening when we feel the world is against us and we have no forgiveness of real or imagined injuries.
If we have no forgiveness it would be hard to appreciate gratitude, abundance, truth and understanding (Angel Cards I have written). We are caught up in the past. That feeling of blame and hurt is not servicing us and often pushing us further down. Eating into us and not letting us see there is more out there than past hurts.
I am not saying forgiveness isn’t hard and maybe it was a horrendous experience but you are letting that experience/person whatever keep you down and replay the past. Give yourself peace by forgiveness. Recognise that some things can’t be changed and you are more than your past. Forgive and move forward. You might not be able to tell someone how hurt you were but you can work at letting that hurt go and not be defined by it.
Once we forgive, starting with ourselves I think other doors will open and more light will shine in illuminating possibilities. We can take a breath and move forward in our journey. We are not victims and forgiveness can be the first step.
