I had a lovely day at the Spirit, Mind, and Body fair. I spent a few hours there with a good friend of mine, and then returned a little while later with my daughter Paige. It was a new experience to share this with Paige. I loved being able to sit with her through a crystal reading, energy healing, chakra clearing, and just exploring the booths.
But my personal best part of the day was an energy healing I received from Rick Dougherty. He is an incredibly gifted man, that just amazes me. We explored the areas that I have blockages as well as the reasons behind them. We also looked into my past life and it was a very eye opening experience. I left feeling lighter and hopeful for the success I can have in my relationships, if I work hard at forgiveness.
Forgiveness is a challenge for me. I have a hard time forgiving others, and forgiving myself. The end of my marriage brought out a lot of feelings of anger and resentment over the things that occurred during my 15 year marriage. During my healing, Rick said, "Wow. Your 20s were hell!" LOL - yes they were.
I have learned that forgiveness isn't about the other person, but about myself. Forgiving someone doesn't really benefit them. Karma will still take care of their transgressions. Forgiving them benefits the universe because of the good energy it gives. But really, forgiving will benefit me. By forgiving another, I am also forgiving myself. It will allow me to open my heart so I may receive love.
So, that will be the focus of the coming months. Forgiving others, forgiving myself, and opening my heart to all the love, peace and abundance that I can receive.
