I’ve just recorded this week’s Astrolines – they are all about forgiveness this week, as Mercury links to Venus and sets the right scene for saying sorry or for forgiving someone else.
When we get upset with someone, we are just acting out our karma. And the way to release karma is to forgive.
It is said that when we argue or battle with someone and we don’t forigve, we just leave the karma in the ethers to come back and bite us in the next lifetime.
Which is kind of a scary thought! You know, when you break up with someone, for example, and you are still racked with upset about it but you just “move on” without actually processing your feelings.
Without forgiveness, you are likely to come back in the next lifetime and go through the same issues. The cycle repeats itself until at least one of the two people involves forgives. For more about this, read Ascending Into Miracles by Jennifer Hoffman.
And even if you don’t believe in reincarnation, forgiveness is good for us in this lifetime – even the renowned Mayo Clinic states that forgiveness is healthy.
“Nearly everyone has been hurt by the actions or words of another. Perhaps your mother criticized your parenting skills, your colleague sabotaged a project or your partner had an affair. These wounds can leave you with lasting feelings of anger, bitterness or even vengeance — but if you don’t practice forgiveness, you might be the one who pays most dearly. By embracing forgiveness, you can also embrace peace, hope, gratitude and joy. Consider how forgiveness can lead you down the path of physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.” From here.
