In all my 25 years as a healer, I don’t know of one person that has not experienced abuse in one form or another whether it be physical, mental, emotional, sexual, humiliation, degradation etc. myself included.
It wasn’t until I actually understood why we, as Souls, may want to learn the power of the virtue of forgiveness, that it became much easier to forgive those who had hurt me.
You see for our Soul it’s a great opportunity to grow and expand our abilities to love unconditionally, and in doing so we tend to live lifetime after lifetime within the same soul family and/or even our genetic lineage playing different roles along the way.
It is our family who challenge us the most to help us to learn and grow. Such experiences as degradation, humiliation, abandonment and abuse can be so detrimental that sometimes it will damage our hearts and souls so much so that they can fracture, break and even shatter. This is known as a Broken Soul.
This hurt is deep. If you’ve ever heard anyone say that they are broken, or they can’t be fixed, there’s no help for me. This is a broken soul. Luckily we have our guides and guardian angels that lead us to the right people who can help heal. This will often lead to self-discovery and your life purpose and regaining of your personal power.
Don’t get me wrong forgiveness does not condone the abuse. Forgiveness sets you free from carrying the energy or belief that you are a victim which holds onto the abuse. You may find that if you separate yourself from the person who has abused you that it happens again from the new people in your life. This is the belief or feeling that you are a victim. That, you are weak. This is something that needs to be healed and released. Forgiveness, in of itself is actually a very high vibration and one our greatest forms of protection, it can easily dissolve the negativity that may come from others.
Once a person realizes that they have the power to change it's as if you can actually hear your angels cheering! They do get very excited for you! Then the healing beings. Depending on you and the way you choose for that to happen is up to you. It can take years, or just a few seconds, most times there are many layers. But by using the Broken Soul healing technique this helps tremendously.
I often have told this following story to many of my clients in my own version but I think Donald Neal Walsch, children's book tells it better.
“The Little Soul and the Sun” tells the story of a little boy soul wishing to learn more of what it is. God responds saying you are love. But the little boy soul had no other frame of reference other than love and it wished to experience the virtue of forgiveness.
“That’s what I want to be. I want to be forgiving. I want to experience myself as that.”
But just then a Friendly Soul stepped forward from the crowd.
“Not to worry, Little Soul,” The Friendly Soul said,
“I will help you.”
“You will?” the Little Soul brightened. “But what can you do?”
“Why, I can give you someone to forgive!”
“Certainly!” chirped the Friendly Soul. “I can come into your next lifetime and do something for you to forgive.”
“But why? Why would you do that?” the Little Soul asked. “You, who are a Being of such utter perfection! You, who vibrate with such a speed that it creates a Light so bright that I, can hardly gaze upon you! What could cause you to want to slow down your vibration to such a speed that your bright Light would become dark and dense? What could cause you ~ who are so light that you dance upon the stars and move through the Kingdom with the speed of your thought–to come into my life and make yourself so heavy that you could do this bad thing?”
“Simple,” the Friendly Soul said. “I would do it because I love you.”
The Little Soul seemed surprised at the answer.
“Don’t be so amazed,” said the Friendly Soul, “You have done the same thing for me. Don’t you remember? Oh, we have danced together, you and I, many times. Through the eons and across all the ages, have we danced. Across all time and in many places have we played together. You just don’t remember.”
“I will have to slow down my vibration and become very heavy to do this not-so-nice thing. I will have to pretend to be something very unlike myself. And so, I have but one favor to ask of you in return.”
“Oh, anything, anything!” cried the Little Soul, and began to dance and sing, “I get to be forgiving, I get to be forgiving!”
Then the Little Soul saw that the Friendly Soul was remaining very quiet.
“What is it?” the Little Soul asked. “What can I do for you? You are such an angel to be willing to do this for me!”
“Of course this Friendly Soul is an angel!” God interrupted. “Everyone is! Always remember: I have sent you nothing but angels.”
And so the Little Soul wanted more than ever to grant the Friendly Soul’s request.
“What can I do for you?” The Little Soul asked again.
“In the moment that I strike you and smite you,” The Friendly Soul replied, “In the moment that I do the worst to you that you could possible imagine ~ in that very moment…”
“Yes?” The Little Soul interrupted, “yes…?”
”Remember Who I Really Am.”
“Oh, I will!” cried the Little Soul, “I promise! I will always remember you as I see you right here, right now!”
“Good,” said the Friendly Soul, “Because, you see, I will have been pretending so hard, I will have forgotten myself. And if you do not remember me, as I really am, I may not be able to remember for a very long time. And if I forget Who I Am, you may even forget Who You Are, and we will both be lost. Then we will need another soul to come along and remind us both of Who We Are.”
“No, we won’t!” the Little Soul promised again. “I will remember you! And I will thank you for bringing me this gift ~ the chance to experience myself as Who I Am.”
What is not known by many is that in making these agreements, they are made on our soul’s contracts and keep us tied to them on an energetic level, working with The Creator we can absolve these people of these agreements and obligation to be our teachers. In doing so this releases you to be free to live a more happier, loving, joyful and success life. But it also releases the other person.
It's not easy to forgive others even harder to forgive ourselves. oh! But the benefits are great! You feel more vibrant, have more energy, sadness and depression seems to melt way, your intuition will increase with every person or situation you forgive. Things just start falling into place for you. More abundance flows your way! Who wouldn't want that!
I love this story! I tear up every time I hear it. Unfortunately, some of those precious angels who help us learn about forgiveness never remember who they really are in this life until they transition. Either role is difficult, but fortunately The Creator is always shinning the light.
