Forgiveness. This is the real true tool to happiness and soul development.
What happens when we hold on to anger and resentment? Or spend precious time thinking about hurts and people that were involved? Sometimes even wishing they experience pain and suffering, too?
There is an energy that grips us when we hold on to anger of a person or situation. It literally wastes time and eats away at our soul and spirit. Anger and resentment can take hold of our heart and block good from coming our way. Energetically, it constricts and even blocks the flow of your life force that is designed to keep your physical body functioning effectively and properly.
Anger and resentment effect your body in all possible ways-emotionally, energetically, and even physically. Pain, tumors, heartburn, headaches-these are some common physical symptoms the body can develop as a result of hanging on to the emotional pain and anger.
Is it easy to let go no matter how much you felt wronged? Well, it isn’t easy but it is as simple or as complicated as we make it.
Can it happen over the course of a day or night? Actually, it can. If we have already been ready and willing. It can also take longer, depending on how many layers the anger has to be stripped away. One layer may come off and allow the lighter feeling of freedom to encourage us to delve deeper.
Here is a very effective exercise for facing and releasing anger so you can forgive and finally live again (or for the first time).
First, identify the anger. When you think of the cause, where do you feel it in your body?
Does it have a color or shape? Really observe its attributes and where it resides. Does it have a texture? What form or object can you associate with it? Take a few minutes in silence to concentrate on this place, sending green healing energy to it.
Once you feel less effected by its presence, ask if there was a lesson. Think of a gift or blessing it may have given to you. If it is too close to when it happened, the positive outcome may not be as recognizable.
Continue sending healing light to the area of your body where this anger is being stored. Gently consider what the lesson might be. Breathe deeply for a series of 5 inhales and exhales.
Now envision a tube-like connection from the bottom of your spine to the earth.
Go to your core, your stomach, which is the center of your being. Imagine a light, like a candle flame burning. Picture it getting bigger and brighter and warmer like the sun. This healing angelic light gently moves to where your body is holding on to this vibration of anger. The light envelopes this now physical energy and takes it to the bottom of your spine where this tube is waiting to collect what no longer serves you and sends it down into the earth. You can slowly breathe in and exhale enthusiastically as you give it extra force downward J.
For example, I had cancer. At first, I was angry and really scared. Then I sent all kinds of healing light and prayers to it. When I was less afraid and mad, I asked what it was really all about. It was no coincidence that I found Reiki at the same time. Receiving Reiki during a cancer journey was a miracle. A must share with everybody experiencing disease or pain or suffering of any kind! That is what it must be! The cancer lesson, the blessing, was that I must show others this healing miracle Reiki that is accessible to the whole world! Yes, even cancer can be forgiven and has the potential to be a blessing J.
Another very important lesson I learned about forgiveness and letting go of anger was something I held on to for over 40 years. This may be more relatable to those of you who have spent life times with anger and family problems.
I was 5 when my father left us and began a new life. What is a 5 year supposed to think when she sees her daddy with a new family? Not to say he didn’t try to see me, but again, what would a 5 year old feel and think as her father lived on with another daughter and new wife in toe?
I held on to this hurt and resentment most of my life. Until I started doing healing work, I hadn’t connected my insecurities and fear of abandonment with childhood. Whatever we experience before the age of 7 sticks like glue in our subconscious. And in my case, that sense of safety and security was compromised. Hence, 40 years later, I began healing issues regarding feeling unsafe and insecure and not worthy all of the time.
When I finally decided it was time to release my father and honor his life path, the feeling of freedom was remarkable. I decided it was time to forgive his choices. They took him on his path, and took me on mine!
I used to believe that this was the most harm that was ever placed on me. Once I was finally able to face that anger, who it was attached to, and found compassion and forgiveness for why it happened, I released it like a balloon into the sky.
And honestly, there was room for forgiving myself for not wanting to see him before he passed. I had a chance to write and tell him I forgave him and he seemed to appreciate that. He visits as his spirit makes up for lost time. I occasionally feel his presence and we talk about what happened. He understands now why I didn’t want to see him and I forgive him for not figuring that out for himself.
As you journey through this life, remember that it is too short and too beautiful to spend time carrying anger around in your body and soul. Not to say don’t get angry! That is a very valid emotion we were obviously given to experience. Simply recognize there is so much more to focus on in this life. The prolonged anger only slows down our soul’s development and pushes the good away.
Time may be the key if you are not ready right now. Consider the more exciting thoughts you would prefer to carry until then.
May you find peace and healing along your path. There really are so many blessings around us to focus on that keep our vibration higher, attracting the goodness the Universe has to offer.
