The angels talk to me often about the need to forgive.  Forgive yourself, forgive others, forgive God.  I’ve also read Gary Renard’s two books: The Disappearce of the Universe and Your Immortal Reality, which are his teachings of A Course In Miracles, so I get lots of messages about forgiveness.  Radical forgiveness.

It (forgiveness) is the path to inner peace — and, outer peace too, actually.  It’s allowing things that are out of alignment with your vibration to be released.  It removes the energetic attachment and leaves behind peace of heart and mind.

Now, one *really* important aspect of forgiveness is that you can forgive someone and not choose to be in a relationship with them.  So, forgiveness isn’t about letting someone off the hook so they can hurt you again.  Oh, no!  The angels don’t instruct us to let ourselves be hurt time and time again.  They guide us to love ourselves enough to put up boundaries with people or situations that would harm us.

The forgiveness is an inner experience of release and sometimes that process goes *very* deep.  Usually, when we begin to forgive another, we find a deeper layer that needs to be forgiven within ourselves.  It’s one of those upward spirals — the first step, by extending inner forgiveness to another, leads us to finding a deeper love and acceptance of ourselves, which allows us to extend greater love outward.

And, that is the path of peace.  By forgiving daily — by the moment, sometimes — we begin to experience life as easier.  More joyful.  More colorful.  Safer.

But the angels *always* remind us to love ourselves the way heaven loves us.  Care for ourselves the way a mother cares for a baby.  Love ourselves enough to create boundaries — and sometimes that means we must release a relationship.  And, that’s okay.

Blessings today, friends!  Love from the angels.
