And while 8 is usually associated with money, wealth and achievement, in addition, it represents infinity and endless possibilities. New Year’s resolutions are often made at the start of a new year, only to be put aside and forgotten within the first couple of weeks.
Wouldn’t it be fantastic if you lived this season of Infinite Possibilities feeling lighter, more clear and without the endless struggles of the past haunting you, for the whole year! Forgiveness provides this. And you can start making changes at the moment! We all have wounds and for lots of us there are unspeakable traumas of childhood abuse which haunt our waking moments, weighing us down and interfering with our relationships by ‘making’ us always searching for that next strike or waiting to be abandoned or betrayed.
Wouldn’t it be amazing to release the load of these hurts and traumas allowing you to be free so you can finally move forward and really create the endless possibilities you’re capable of producing, with and through the aid of this Universe. The decision is yours alone. You can either opt to start the process of releasing the past, or you continue doing what you have always done, by living in the past through your story and the consequences.
But how can you meet your Life Purpose if you refuse to let go of the past? How do any of us proceed with the aim of making a world of Peace, if we refuse to give up the Story of our own painful past experiences? It must start with us, by creating Inner Peace first. And it all starts with forgiveness! It’s the Story of the past which causes all our suffering. People become attached to maintaining the narrative of the wounds it becomes their reality of the world. But it is not the planet causing your distress, stress or injury, it is your beliefs.
What if you give up all of your stories, who would you be then? Could you let go of your own stories? We cannot hold Love and any taste of fear in our hearts at the exact same time. The attachment to our Story creates fear the most powerful emotion, and the more powerful emotion always cancels out the poorer one, whatever we tell ourselves and others. Ultimately it is the Story that restricts us, keeping us locked in the wounds of the past, keeping us stuck not just in the past with no place else to go, but connected energetically to the person or people linked to the origin of original abuse. It’s like the opposite of sporting rose-colored eyeglasses, where instead of seeing just the’rosy’ niceties, we see only negativity if there’s none.
When we hold unforgiveness in our heart, once we concentrate on people who have hurt us, we continue to give them power over us and let them have control over us throughout the energetic connection we have together. Predators do not just take our innocence, they take a fragment of our Soul. Always referring to a wound and injury also enables the abuser to keep on taking your energy and your personal power. When you forgive it is not for them, but for you, as you wish to finally be liberated from the energy the abuser has over you, thereby breaking up the lively connection once and for all by taking the fragment of your Soul back.
You’re not forgiving the act of violence, what they did. You’re forgiving yourself and the ones that hurt you, so you could really be set free. Where your attention goes your energy flows, and what you resist, persists. Over time, the constant stress caused by constantly searching for that next attack interrupts the nervous system, Chakras, the Universal Web, our immune system and our mobile repair mechanism. When we give up our stories, all of the regrets, the sorrows and blame, the suffering no more exists.
Like an empty harddrive, we become free to install new programs of our choosing whereby we might go through the infinite possibilities life in this form offers. The possibilities are literally endless. There are an endless number of ways we could experience Joy and Love and Peace and Abundance and anything else our soul desires. Albert Einstein explained the most important decision we must make is if we believe we are living in a friendly or a hostile world. Cell Biologist Dr Bruce Lipton says those crucial nine months in the uterus followed by the first six decades of life lay down the foundation of our subconscious patterns and determine whether we are living in growth or a continuous demand for security, for the rest of our lives. Dr Lipton also says the’need to protect’ pattern could be altered; but that it requires hard work and dedication to change the pattern and discharge the energy associated with it, something I can affirm is accurate.
Yet despite our traumas in the past and present life traumas with their related scars and wounds, like it or not, all of us create our own reality. While very few acknowledge they construct all of their fact, most people will take credit for producing the’good’ stuff, while stating that the perceived’bad’ stuff was a result of somebody else. It’s far easier to blame someone else for our disharmonious encounters in life than accepting responsibility for making them ourselves. For those willing to take responsibility for everything in their lives and who have a desire to change, that are prepared to focus on and make a reality based on Self-Love and Inner Peace, the question we must ask is: how can I make myself suffer and what am I getting out of it by hanging on the Story of my past? What’s making me choose to endure rather than going on with my life? There comes a point then when, if we genuinely wish to see Peace and Unity in the world around us, we must be ready to do more than simply talk about it.
We must be ready to give up the past and quit trying to make others feel guilty. We can not change the past from a place of separation, just from a place where we know all is One. And, forgiveness is the key! True forgiveness requires intention together with a willingness and dedication to publish the past. But we need to do more than just talk about forgiveness. We have to live it. Where do we draw that line? At what point do we say there has been enough suffering today, it ends with me? I don’t want my kids or their children, or some more of my future generations to think they are victims. I will do whatever is needed to make peace, harmony and equanimity within me, here, today. Therefore I am prepared to contact this Love that I am and I will hold Unity and Oneness in my heart, because I know I can not see and experience Love, Peace and Unity in the world around me until it is first within me.
