Forgiveness is essentially a powerful act of grace and compassion…
It can transform our lives in profound ways.
When we forgive, we release ourselves from the burden of anger, resentment, and bitterness that can weigh us down and hold us back.
Forgiving could be the greatest gift we can give ourselves and others; it frees us from the past and opens up new possibilities for the future.
And here in the Waning Cycle post the eclipses, it’s the perfect time to forgive and let go.
One way to approach forgiveness is to do it like we forgive children.
Children are gorgeous but they are not perfect; they make mistakes!
When they misbehave, though, we don’t hold onto grudges against them or seek revenge.
Instead, we understand that they are learning and growing, and we offer them love, compassion, and patience.
We forgive them easily and move on, without dwelling on the issue.
Try adopting a similar attitude of kindness and understanding to everyone around you.
Recognize that everyone is on their own journey and that they too are learning and growing.
You may see someone’s mistakes or shortcomings … but reframe then as as opportunities for YOU to grow and transform through your tolerance and acceptance, rather than as reasons for judgment and condemnation.
Extend forgiveness with an open heart and a willingness to let go of the past.
Forgiving like the Divine forgives us can also be a powerful approach to forgiveness.
The Divine forgives us unconditionally, without any expectation of repayment or retribution.
The Divine’s forgiveness is rooted in love and compassion, and it is always available to us, no matter what we have done or failed to do.
When we forgive like the Divine, we tap into a deep well of compassion and grace that can heal even the most broken relationships and wounded hearts.
So , forgiving is perhaps the greatest gift we can give ourselves and others.
By forgiving like we forgive children and like the Divine forgives us, we cultivate compassion, grace, and healing in our lives and in the world.
