Are you having trouble forgiving a loved one, a colleague, or someone from your past? Forgiveness can be very healing, but it can also be challenging and scary. Whenever something feels challenging or scary it's a good cue to seek out support: from loved ones, health-care professionals—and angels! Angels assist you on a forgiveness journey by surrounding you with their protective energy, softening your heart, helping you see a person or situation from Spirit's perspective and giving you the courage to open up old wounds.
Be extremely gentle with yourself when working on forgiving someone, as many challenging emotions like anger, sorrow and regret can come to the surface. Remember that forgiveness should never be forced, always authentic. If you're having trouble forgiving someone, it doesn't make you wrong, cold or less enlightened. It just means you’re hurt, and you’re human. You may never genuinely forgive this person, and that’s absolutely okay. You will still get a lot out of the following exercises on forgiveness.
Ask an angel to sit with you while you read through these forgiveness tips. It can be one of your guardian angels, your favorite archangel or a helper angel who specializes in forgiveness. All you have to do is think, pray or write in your journal, "Angels, I really want to work on forgiving someone, and I'm going to need your help."
