Forgiveness & Patience ~ part 2


October 20, 2014

Sophia, I have been working very hard on forgiveness, for without it I feel I cannot evolve. Whenever I think that I have managed true forgiveness, something comes up to show me that I may have not completely forgiven. What is the work that needs to be done once the intention to forgive is in place?

Dearest One, forgiveness is a process and as such cannot be done in one ‘sitting’. Knowing that there are several layers on the path to forgiveness and patience with your process, is key.

Forgiveness is intertwined with time, others, and yourself. When one feels a need to forgive a deep injury, the past must be brought up which is the timeline associated with the situation. This incites the chain reaction of being pulled out of the now (where you have done some work on this issue), and into the hurtful situation as it happened. If you have done any work around forgiveness of the situation, recreating it should feel different, and another facet of the situation should be apparent. This would be the next layer to work with in your process.

It is easy to get ‘stuck’ in forgiving someone for a violation you feel is unforgivable to you. This then requires that you go deeper into where the belief of the violation comes from. Is there a programming issue at work? Another words, were you programmed to believe something that felt violated? If so, is this your belief or someone else’s that you acquired and were taught to make your own? If this feels right, it would be wise to consider the belief system you have around the issue. Sometimes it is easy to tell when the belief may come from another source by looking at how resistant you are to the defense of your beliefs. When one does not want to consider change, growth and evolution is stopped.

Sophia, I can see how forgiveness can involve more effort than just ‘talking’ yourself into it. I know personally that in the past I have made the decision to forgive through analyzing, which did not work.

You are correct! Forgiveness is not of the mind (ego). It is of the heart. This is why most cannot complete the process. Deep forgiveness delves underneath the ‘chain of pain’ within the heart. Each event, person, or situation is interlinked with one variable; and that is you. In some situations forgiveness of yourself for not being ‘loveable’ or ‘good enough’ is enough to heal. This could very well be the only act of forgiveness that may truly matter!

I understand that forgiving ourselves is very important, for without that we have not stopped the chain reaction of creating situations that require forgiveness. What about a true violation such as rape or murder?

Yes, this is the highest form of forgiveness and the most difficult. This requires you to ‘see’ with a higher mind/heart connection. This is a deep injury that has many facets to it, and in some cases cannot be undone due to the level of guilt intertwined within the injury. Guilt is the highest form of punishment that the ego generates to keep you ‘in line’. Guilt is the ‘hold card’ for the ego that can undermine anything in your life. In the case of an ‘unforgiveable’ situation, the first step must be the willingness to let go, forgive, and heal the pain that is caused by the situation. Pain is addicting, for it gives some ones a reason to be weak and feel victimized. Healing and forgiving lifts you out of the process of victimization, and allows you to see the bigger picture that involves all that we have discussed. Remembering that you are responsible only for yourself and your actions can help you see the event from a ‘third party’ viewpoint. You must be willing to step outside of the pain of the situation to see the larger picture and the part each one had within it. Only then can you find a speck of understanding within the event. Knowing that you cannot change anything that has happened helps to pull you out of the fog of the pain. Loss is a part of your evolution. Being able to understand this clarifies and refines your being. It lifts you to a higher place of understanding and love, for this is what your higher instinct knows you are working towards. You cannot have higher evolution of your being with lower level unresolved pain and guilt. This is your path to peace, joy, bliss and love for yourself and others.

Thank you, Sophia!

What’s so about now?

Below is a communication from Archangel Gabriel. I am very close with AA Gabriel as I work with him during healing sessions.  I was introduced to the AA Gabriel energy during a workshop with Doreen Virtue.

I decided to ask Archangel Gabriel some questions about my spiritual development.  Below is the Q&A that arose from my asking.

What are these times leading up to?

We are embarking on a new adventure steeped in consequence.  There are many things that are not being said and this does not mean voiced.  We are bringing things to light that are not currently known.  It is just now coming to be.

Can you give me some relative information concerning how we will ‘see’ these changes?

There is sight and there is ‘sight’.  We will assist you with seeing both ways.  No longer will you wonder about how things will turn out.  There will be obvious signs and engaging opportunities for you to realize your awakening.  Many will just know what to do.  Others will continue to be confused.  There is a heralding of assistance coming to be.  Now is your future.  Tuning in and allowing is the manner of the day.  Open to receiving.  Allow the process to flow.  Be within at all times.

How will this look in my personal life?

You are embarking on a well earned journey.  You have chosen to do the work required of you.  There have been times you have wanted to give up and retreat but it is not your nature.  If you continue to stay open and in the moment you will have your dreams and desires.  There is much good here for you!  Allow, respond, and flow.  Love is your creed.  Many will want your presence.  Be with them and hold up the light and love for their highest vibration. Assist them with seeing their goodness.

How is this to happen?

Timing is the utmost critical rule for manifestation.  You are embarking on this journey now.  Each moment is a step forward.  Be content to just flow without concern of what to do.  There is no doing, just being and trusting the situation is what it is.  You are the only one that can do what you are to do.  Be the one so that others will follow your lead.

No further questions, thank you in love Archangel Gabriel ♥

This communication was a year ago.  I was trying to keep things in sequence, but I am being guided to include information in just this order.

A very good friend of mine suggested that I ask for questions.  If you have questions, please email them to me and I will include a post with the question and the answer.  If you don’t want your question posted, just let me know in the email.

P.S.  BTW ~ this wonderful friend of mine does readings using a very unique system.  If you are interested in contacting her, please email me and I will forward your request to her.

Michell ♥

Have a beautiful day!
