In an earlier post, I wrote about how certain people and events who cause disappointments and heartache are brought into our lives for a reason. I suggested closely observing your interactions with them. They are intended to teach us something about ourselves and are our major lessons of life. If you take this opportunity to learn these life lessons, it will lead to major breakthroughs and transformations for your soul.
Recently, I forgave a person who caused disappointment and terrible heartache for me not only in this lifetimes, but for many past lifetimes. This connection with others is called karma as we had unresolved issues with each other causing this karmic connection between us. It was a five year process for me to acknowledge what this connection actually was. Then I went through the difficult progress of understanding what I was intended to learn from this karmic connection. Finally, I recently forgave him and let him go which resolved the karma between us at least for me.
What happened next was miraculous! All the fears, heartache, and pain vanished with this forgiveness. I had terrible jealousy, distrust of men, fear of being unlovable, fear of abandonment, resentment, anger, heartache and pain from his rejection of me for other women. Although I had been working very hard these past five years to heal my emotional wounds from childhood, adulthood, and past lives, the final step of forgiveness was necessary to overcome what I had been unable, and along with him, I let go of my past through this forgiveness.
Forgiveness is not done for others; it is for ourselves to heal and move forward. When I forgave him, I finally was ready to release him from this karmic connection. When I did this, I overcame my own hurdles, emotional pain, and healed my emotional wounds. If you have someone in your life who hurt or wounded you, find some way to truly forgive them. The act itself will release you from them, so you can move forward onto a better, different, healthier, and happier life. (Copyright 2016 Awakening Journey with All Rights Reserved)
