Forgiveness of others

Published January 20, 2015 by murgcat

Wow, the hard work of self-forgiveness is done! Don’t fool yourself it is hard work, but with diligence and perseverance it is attainable. As you were releasing the energetic threads that needed forgiveness, some were more tenacious than others.
Some of these are the threads that emanate from outside of us. Grudges and slights that are still embraced and fed. Karmic and familial connections that you may not know even exist. These are some of the hardest bonds to break.
The threads that are personal can often times be dispelled by a simple ceremony. Acknowledging the connection, having compassion and empathy for the being on the other end of the connection is sometimes all that is needed. There are times when as unpalatable as it may seem a personal contact is needed to clear the energy.
There are times when the first two options are unattainable. Familial and past life karma are good examples of that situation. There are also the moments when contact with the being on the other end of the thread could cause your annihilation. There are deeper practices that can cut the connection free, carefully and correctly. This is necessary so that the energy cords that are now out there flailing around like medusa’s ‘do, don’t whip back around and find you again.
Let’s set the record straight, I am not saying that all of a sudden you have to invite your worst enemy over for dinner! To paraphrase Clint Eastwood “This doesn’t mean we’re gonna cuddle and I’ll have your love child.” The energetic threads are gone. There is no longer a connection. After going through the full and total process of forgiveness the only way for there to be a thread anymore is if you make the conscious decision for it to be there.
This is an exercise to regain your personal power. The reclamation of energy that was being burnt on things of the past is empowering. Those threads flowed around the Now and guided your future. Your actions and reactions have always been influenced by the connections. We are all puppets dancing on Karmic threads.
The next step is total recapitulation. Moving beyond forgiveness and looking at all of the connecting threads of your life and releasing them. All of them. The threads of love, joy, sorrow all the threads of energy that keep you tethered in the past thus influencing the flow of the future. When those tethers are released you become free you can chose the course that is best for you with out the shackles of the past forcing your direction.
This exercise brings about one of the most enchanting spiritual paradoxes. The more of the spiritual threads you cut, the more connections you break, the more connected you feel to everything. Reclamation of your personal power and living in the Now brings into perspective how ultimately everything is connected.

Most Powerful Spiritual Tool Ever

kwan_yin         It’s something so simple yet requires so much strength. Perhaps the most important step on the road to enlightenment. Forgiveness. Not in a Peewee Herman “I’m sorry, I’m soooo sorry…I’m not sorry nyahh” kind of way but in a deep act of intention. Most important is this act of forgiveness must start with you.

For any point in your life where you feel you need to forgive someone for a transgression against you, there is a need to forgive yourself for hanging on to that negativity for so long. Many times the energy is anger at your self for allowing yourself to be put in the position to be injured.

Our energetic connections are never a one-way street there is always a give and take. Connections to the incidents of our lives are not a single strand of energy but a braid. The flow and focus of energy can run in many directions.

To truly be able to cut the cords that bind us to the past we must be able to discern the direction of the original intent. We need to figure out which cords of a negative nature are emanating from us. That should be the focus of our first round of forgiveness.

From the deep loving center of your Heart forgive yourself for holding on to the feelings of hate, anger, jealousy or any other deeply felt negative emotion that keeps you tied to a specific incident. If you can truly, deeply and with absolute intent release that connection with forgiveness and love the braid of energy that keeps you connected begins to fade.

In many instances dissolution of a single strand of the braid can cause the whole connection to dissolve. Many times, what one perceived as an affront or slight may have been unnoticed by the other party. By cutting those ties in this way, you regain energy that is poured into the situation.

Forgiveness cuts binding energy that is much better used for healing and love than it is to maintain any kind of animosity. Especially if that energy is one-sided. Seems so easy.

It takes true strength to reap the rewards of forgiveness. For forgiveness to work in your life it must be all encompassing. True forgiveness requires total surrender of all that needs forgiveness. The bully that made you drink the spoiled milk in the 6th grade as well as that coach in high school that did those things in the locker room.

Definitely no comparison in the severity of how we perceive those transgressions, yet for the act of spiritual forgiveness, true forgiveness, those acts must be treated the same. It takes true strength to release all negativity equally. To connect to the full power of the act it must be total and unconditional. The freedom gained can be liberating.
