Today’s Healing with the Angels oracle card is Forgiveness. When things happen to us, or we perceive that they have happened, it is easy to embrace an attitude of anger and resentment toward the offending person or group. In order for us maintain this attitude over an extended period of time, to hold a grudge, we must constantly revisit the past and relive the offense so that our anger becomes raw and emotional again. This is not healthy and it robs us of our presence, one of the most important and healthy behaviors we can embody.
When this card appears, the angels, spirit guides, and Gods/Goddesses are asking you to release any anger or resentment that you have been holding on to so that you can heal and move forward from the past. While you may have actually been harmed or hurt in some way, you don’t need to forgive the offending act but rather the offender. You are not saying, ‘What you did to me is okay’; you are instead saying, ‘I am no longer willing to carry around pain, anger, or resentment based on your actions’. This may also allow you to forgive yourself as well. Often if we do some self examination, we are in a space of blaming ourselves for ‘falling for it’ or ‘trusting someone’. It’s okay to let yourself off the hook! That was then and this is now. You can’t change what has happened, only what is happening and what could happen, or what actions and energies to prevent, in the future. Be at peace with yourself and know that the angels, guides, and Gods are with you, supporting you during this time and always.
Today, embrace being present in the energies of forgiveness, and let the healing begin.
