My Angel card today is Opportunity to Forgive.
When I look back over my days & months in my journal, a lot of my cards deal with Forgiveness. I truly get why this theme is so pervasive in my readings. In my heart, I have a lot of people that I need to forgive. I also have a long list of things I need to forgive myself for.
The meaning to the Opportunity to Forgive card says that "the Angels sent you this card because they see that you've grown weary of reoccurring negative patterns in your life."
Yes I have. Weary so describes how I feel.
"To break this cycle, it is important for you to release old toxic thoughts." "You can do this by breathing deeply & on each exhalation give your fears, worries, anger & other painful emotions to the Angels."
I adore this Angel Card deck! All of the cards are beautiful and uplifting, no doom & gloom. Each morning I am given a beautiful idea to consider as I move throughout my day.
Then in my daily random flip to a page in Miracles Now, by Gabrielle Bernstein, I landed on #57 Surrender It All. It seems I have another day of forgiveness and surrender in front of me.
"Try not to pray for a specific outcome--instead pray for peace. Accessing a perfect state of peace of mind is really all we need." MM#57 I surrender it all.
So, I am going to work on forgiveness this month.
I know I will be working on it for way longer than a month, like daily for-e-ver, but I need to get some of the smaller, easier to release old emotions out of my head & heart. A couple of days ago I saw a name flash across my phone that I haven't actively seen in a very long time. It is someone I have cared deeply about. Her connecting even in such a small way started the wheels turning and I know that today's release of old toxic thoughts will be to her (and him).
I am also sending out a special prayer to a good friend who is taking part one of the bar exam today! She doesn't need my prayer because she will kick ass today, but prayers help us stay connected to those we love.
