Message from Archangel Raphael - 07-20-2012

On Forgiveness

Love is not what you seek – it is what is inside of you; your core and composition. Many of you have distracted yourself from your true self of love by focusing and often fixating on addressing the issues and people surrounding you. “If only I could fix that or change them” we often hear you say. Instead, the answer always lies within.

If you only could really understand the true healing power of loving yourself, all your problems and worries would be gone in an instant.

One of the easiest ways to allow the healing power of love to flow continuously through you is by releasing the past. Learn to forgive those who have harmed you and most important learn to forgive yourself.

Forgiveness allows you to release the energetic imprint of past hurts and traumas from your body and mind. As these energies are released, it becomes easier for you to stay focused in the present moment – the moment of miracles.

There are many ways to work on forgiveness. Some basic beneficial techniques include:

  1. Journaling with your higher self, God or the angels to gain insight and clarity;
  2. Writing “rage and release” letters to those who have harmed you - including yourself;
  3. Creating guided visualizations/meditations where you can safely address those you seek to forgive;
  4. Working with affirmations or mantras to replace any limiting thoughts and feelings;
  5. Physical exercise or physical techniques (such as beating a pillow) to release pent up anger.

And many others.

Consider asking God and the angels to help you select a book on forgiveness or a healing technique to consider. (Sandra recommends “Radical Forgivenss” by Colin C. Tipping and the Hawaiian Ho’oponopono process).

For long standing or traumatic issues, you may need to begin with a more physical approach such as body work or energy healing. Anger may need to be released safely by hitting a pillow or whatever intense physical exertion that feels appropriate. It is important to allow yourself to cry and feel any pain as its being released. Do not hold yourself back.

Once you begin your forgiveness process, you will know it’s working as you begin to feel emotionally and energetically lighter – like your burdens are being lifted off you. Repeat your forgiveness process whenever you are triggered by an event or person. Remember, they are just holding a mirror to issues you have within yourself.

At the end of each forgiveness exercise, it is vital to take some time to refocus on love. Take a moment to physically relax. Relax. Close your eyes and begin to breathe slowly and deeply. Focus on your heart. Ask God and the angels to help you feel the love that is all around you. Begin to feel it entering your body. Allow it to enter you in whatever way feels best.

Can you feel the Love that God has for you?

Envision a beautiful red rose blossoming in the center of your heart. See if you can smell its essence as you go deeper into the presence of Love. How refreshing is its essence?

Can you smell this essence of love?

As you watch the rose of your heart bloom, ask us to help you heal and release all past hurts and any health issues which may result from them. We will continue to work with you as you desire.

You may also benefit from viewing the situation from another perspective. When you are ready to see things more clearly, ask us to help you find clarity in why things occurred the way they did.

For some of you, forgiveness may seem like a lot of work. However we would assert that continuing your life holding onto the pains of the past and limiting your flow of love is much more difficult. If you could only see how even a minor restriction in your flow of love can impact your entire life efforts, you would begin to allow these harmful energies, thoughts and beliefs to go. You have only your story to lose and the healing power of unconditional love to gain.

If you choose to continue to hold onto to pains from the past or even worry incessantly about the future, you are choosing to continue restricting the flow of love into and out of your life. To move forward in life more easily you simply need to “go with the flow.” Love is here for you. Are you ready to accept it?

With Much Love,

Archangel Raphael
