Is there someone you haven't forgiven yet? Is that someone yourself? Through coaching programs I've taken, we've learned about the Success Principles of Jack Canfield, and one of these principles is "Forgiving, with a capital F". Being unforgiving can actually stand in the way of your success.
It makes sense, when all your energy is directed towards protection or resentment from a specific event happening again, it's not being directed towards action in taking the necessary steps that are needed to reach a goal. It's a block, to receiving and sharing more.
My own healing journey has been one of forgiveness, from myself and others, such as my dad. As you might have read from my other posts he struggled with alcohol addiction and it caused me and the rest of my family to suffer as well. Until he passed away from it in 2016, that's when I truly began on the journey of forgiving.
Essential oils have played a role in helping me do that. There were many other choices I made in my life and career that I had to forgive myself for too, and the oils facilitated that. The essential oils guide and facilitate our work, they don't do our work for us.
We haven't been taught in our society how to forgive, and so sometimes we aren't even aware that that's what is needed for true healing. I believe I had a core wound of betrayal, just something I misinterpreted as a child, which manifested as real events in my life. Every time I was betrayed again my heart would close off a little more, and I would add it to my list of internal grievances.
Until I chose to consciously counteract emotions of anger and guilt, using essential oils. The feelings that replaced them were liberating feelings of contentment, relief, and patience. Forgiving doesn't condone the other person's behavior, it frees you from their effects.
Combined with other modalities such as meditation, art, energy healing, self-reflection, and crystal healing, essential oils have proven to be a force of renewal and healing in my life.
