How to Practice Radical Forgiveness…

“Confront the dark parts of yourself, and work to banish them with illumination and forgiveness. Your willingness to wrestle with your demons will cause your angels to sing.” ~August Wilson

The first time I heard the phrase “radical forgiveness” I wasn’t sure what to make of it. There’s really nothing “radical” about forgiveness. It’s a beautiful vibration that lovingly releases you and another person from an endless loop of energetic punishment, guilt and karmic ties.

I tend to connect the meaning of the word “radical” to “extreme”. It feels harsh, hard, unbalanced and ungiving; but there is another, and more gentle way of looking at it. “Profound”.

Forgiveness is always profound for both the forgiver and the one who is being forgiven and yet it’s rarely an easy task. In order to forgive, we must look into our hearts to see and accept how we added to the situation.

What we cannot forgive holds us hostage and it’s much easier to blame something or someone outside of ourselves than admit we played a part in the scenario. We must open our eyes to the truth, take ownership of our part and shine a loving light on whatever needs to be forgiven.

No matter what needs forgiving, the moment we decide to forgive ourselves and accept the part we played is the moment the vibration of forgiveness gracefully enters our hearts and minds.

We can’t pick and choose.

While there are many things we get to choose like our thoughts, our direction, and our friends we cannot sort through and say ‘I’ll forgive this but I won’t forgive that’.

We can certainly pick and choose the order in which we forgive something or someone in the past but if we get angry and decide “never to forgive”, a part of us will remain in the dark.

Forgiveness is a state of grace and it takes practice and awareness. Deciding to forgive really is divine. It frees us and gives us an opportunity to live in a loving, giving, state of grace every day.~Shine Your Light Debbie

Eclipse * Comet * Full Moon Trifecta!

The air is charged as we approach a weekend of energy events this weekend. This is truly a “trifecta” for spiritual seekers and awakening souls!

As with all astrological events we can use the powerful and exciting energies to help us on our journey.

Eclipse

Starting at 5:34 P.M. eastern time, people along the east coast will be able to see a penumbral lunar eclipse, when the sun, moon and earth all align. (via Weather.com). In this case there will be a subtle “overshadowing” of the moon. Lunar eclipses signify a time of great change and upheaval. Eclipses put us on the ‘right’ path as they illuminate truth and “eclipse out” that which no longer serves us.

“Eclipses shine the bright light of truth to the part of your life that is touched by the eclipse. Most of the time, eclipses act as brilliant illuminators, revealing a condition that you were unaware existed.”~Susan Miller

We are already feeling the effects of the eclipse so find some amusement, sit back and watch events as they unfold. Sometimes, we know that we are meant to make a change but we aren’t sure what to do. Allow the energies during an eclipse to help you.

Full Moon

Full Moons rule our emotions and pour down a tremendous amount of energy. Whatever is going on in our world will be greatly amplified. When we welcome the powerful lunar energies (instead of resisting them) we can use them to clear deeply stuck energy and emotions.

During the time of a Full Moon it is appropriate to celebrate life and light and to be mindful of all that we have, and all that we have created. It is a time to be curious, to open our hearts, count our blessings and feel the connection we have with ourselves and others.

Combining the energy of the Eclipse with that of the Full Moon, we have an opportunity to embrace and accept our truths as we release anything that was hidden.

Comet 45P

The energy of a comet affects us in many ways. A comet is formed by dust (earth element), ice (water element) and gases such as carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide (air element) in the ancient, distant region. Then they are given energy when they pass the sun (fire element), thawing and releasing the frozen air.

Comets symbolize frozen or stuck energy deep in the abyss of our consciousness such as suppressed emotions or fear. As they warm, they release toxic gases. So too, we are able to release toxic thoughts and the more we release, the more we are able to infuse a new zest for life.

Comets re-set the energy. They inspire new thoughts and new ideas. It’s interesting to note that the Chinese refer to comets as ‘the broom star’. Although they consider them ‘bad luck’ don’t forget that brooms are for cleaning and sweeping away debris. With a clean slate, we have room to bring in more wisdom.

According to Smithsonianmag.com Comet 45P has appeared to have lost it’s tail. That’s a lot of toxic energy release! As a planet (and personally) we have also released a lot of toxic energy. We are clearly coming to an end of an era but we are also bringing in wisdom and light as we birth new thoughts and ideas.

What a wonderful time we will have this weekend as we drink from the cosmic soup to re-boot and recharge. Be sure to pay a little extra attention to your mind, body and spirit. The energy is super-charged so you might need a little extra time in meditation, or extra rest. Give your body what it needs. Happy Healing!~Shine Your Light Debbie
