Our card for the day, Tuesday, September 17th, is taken from the Magical Messages From The Fairies – Whom Do You Need To Forgive? – “As you release old anger or resentment, you will find that your wishes will come true.”
This is another card that relates to our manifestation abilities. The manifestation of our deepest thoughts, and the desires of our hearts, can only come about when we are in alignment with them. We are not in alignment with our hearts or souls if we harbor ill will towards another for whatever reason. We need to forgive those who have wronged us, not because they deserve it but because we do. C.S. Lewis said, “We all agree that forgiveness is a beautiful idea until we have to practice it.” The Apostle Paul wrote,”And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you” (Ephesians 4:32). Holding resentment in our hearts doesn’t hurt the one who has caused us to feel this way, it only hurts us. Holding onto past hurt and betrayal lowers our own vibration. Until we can forgive, we are carrying around this negative energy that blocks the flow of good in our lives. Forgiveness doesn’t mean that we condone what was done to us, it is an act of grace, an act of will.
What is forgiveness? Here is some interesting information I found on forgiveness and why we should learn to forgive. Forgiveness is the renunciation or cessation of resentment, indignation or anger as a result of a perceived offense, disagreement, or mistake, or ceasing to demand punishment or restitution. Studies show that people who forgive are happier and healthier than those who hold resentments. The first study to look at how forgiveness improves physical health discovered that when people think about forgiving an offender it leads to improved functioning in their cardiovascular and nervous systems. Another study at the University of Wisconsin found the more forgiving people were, the less they suffered from a wide range of illnesses. The less forgiving people reported a greater number of health problems.(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forgiveness)
The time has come when we need to take a long look at the people in our lives that we have held resentment or anger towards. The time has come to forgive those very people because we can’t take these lower vibrational energies into our new 5th dimensional reality. It is also necessary to forgive ourselves. It operates on the same principle. It would do little good to forgive others if we still can’t forgive ourselves. Whatever it is that we hold in our hearts about ourselves that we feel unable to forgive, something we have done or said to another or even to ourselves, holds us back vibrationally just as being unable to forgive another does. How can we hope to create world peace if we hold anger in our hearts towards anyone? Remember that our outer reality mirrors our inner reality. If we can learn to forgive those who have wronged us in some way and make peace with them and with ourselves, then our outer reality will also change. One cannot happen without the other.
So as we go about our lives in the days to come, can we find a way to open our hearts and forgive, and let go of the past? Can we release this negative energy, that is definitely not serving us, so that we can create the world of peace, health and abundance that we all long for? Can we let the love that we are flow out to embrace our enemies as well as ourselves? That is what is needed here, and until then, our ability to manifest that 5th dimensional reality into our current one is going to be very difficult. Anything that is not love is holding us back. Let’s open our hearts, let the love flow and our lights shine. Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~
