4 Steps to Achieving Forgiveness and Inner Peace

There are so many conflicts in this world today, so much seeming chaos, duality, bias, judgment. It can be overwhelming. I’ve stopped watching the news due to the fact that I am not even certain as to what to believe anymore. It’s a choice I’ve made so that I can keep my focus on the light and on love itself. If my mind, third eye and crown specifically are blocked by feelings of fear and dismay, my vibrational BEing lowers. I’ve worked internally to feel deeply in my body when something is “off,” and when that happens, I must pay attention and clear it immediately. It’s not ignorant or pollyana; for light workers and ones who hold space for healing and love, it’s straight-up necessary. And so the primary reason for the writing of this blog is to cover the intense and powerful virtue of faith and forgiveness, and why faith specifically is so important in universal healing.

Right now it feels like we can’t get a break as humans on this planet. We are clearing a LOT, in case you haven’t noticed – it’s ancestral and karmic. And, it is for that exact reason that I go into “hermit mode” and channel clarifying and always soothing answers as to why. They “soothe” because all messages from Spirit bring unconditional love and reassurance, which are entirely faith-building.  Below is a conversation between my Teachers and me, channeled through my third eye and throat chakras.  I always have a lot of questions.  Questions are good.

I asked: Why is faith so hard sometimes?

“Because you live in a world of uncertainty, wavering and teetering at every moment. You might compare it to a roller coaster – though we did not have those in my time (this is William again, my “monk” teacher from the 14th century – met during a past life vision).

Because you have expectations in general – that all will run smoothly or that it will be a disaster – it throws you in the mind space. You feel that these things are happening against, not for, you. What you often do not see – though many through this awakening are beginning to realize – is the greater lesson in all of it. One might call it the lesson of eternity.”

(Me): What is the lesson of eternity?

There are many aspects:

  1. That we are all connected through one Source.
  2. That we all have the same ultimate goal: Love (peace).
  3. That in order to love fully, we must have faith in something greater than us.
  4. We must forgive.

(Me): Achieving forgiveness can be a tricky one. Many people I have worked with and know on a personal level come from challenging backgrounds – trauma, abuse, etc. How do we forgive when we have been physically, emotionally, mentally, even spiritually or religiously harmed?

“We must trust that these occurrences happened for a reason. That is the epitome of faith itself. There is a strength inside all of us that needs to be explored. Often the “dark” or “lower frequencies” bring out our potential through our anger. Once we realize it is that anger or fear we need to face – and once we overcome it, move through it and let it go – we grow into mighty beings. We become the exact beings our souls and spirits were created to be.”

(Me): How do we build faith in something we cannot see with the human eye?

“Begin by searching within. Slow down. This takes consistency in practice. We cannot see, feel, sense the peace outside of us without having peace within – and vice versa. We all know what peace feels like: calm, an ancient recognition. Working in that state perpetually is possible. We must strive for that inner peace particularly when we feel threatened or hurt. Any response out of emotional turmoil leads to an undesired outcome. When we stop, breathe in, focus inward and then release, we can feel the peace. We begin to see how through that connection all outcomes work in everyone’s favor. That is faith building.”

This is a great reminder when the mind is spinning, when things seem to be “falling apart.” Often, like the Tarot “Tower” or “Death” major arcana, what seems so scary is exactly what needed to happen in order to break down the unhealthy structures in place to rebuild what is in the best interest of the all. In other words, know deep within you that even though life around you may seem hectic, it’s because all the flying pieces in that tornado or figuring out what needs to go, what needs to stay and that it will all work out in the end.
