Channeling Ophelia – Forgiving Yourself
“By knowing yourselves completely you will access more information. You will be able to decode more easily all that has been outside of your awareness and your abilities to perceive. Regardless of what you have done and what you have been, there is a richness of experience that comes from acknowledging all aspects of yourselves.
Forgiveness means knowing that there is no crime. There is no victim. There is no reason to condemn. And when you can get to that place with yourselves, you will be able to access more. You will find that with every perceived transgression that you forgive, it gets easier. You feel more compassion for those other aspects of yourselves.
When you are embarking upon this journey of better knowing yourselves, keep in your awareness that there is nothing that you can do that would separate you from Source. No amount of rejecting of that which you are puts a barrier between you and All That Is. It is all perception. You can have the experience of feeling separated and separate from Source and shame and guilt and every kind of self-recrimination, but you cannot be separate from Source. You cannot obtain your freedom from that which you truly are.
In a sense, all acts are acts of mercy, no matter how violent. You are all doing each other favors by playing the roles that you play. And within every act is a layer of love that must be present in order for you to make those very specific choices. I wish to grant you permission to find everything that you have done and every aspect of yourself as a different kind of love than you are familiar with.
Reach deep within yourselves for that knowing, because it is there. It cannot hide and it cannot escape, just as you cannot hide and cannot escape. Absolution is. It does not require you to do anything to make up for what has occurred. Just because you have a memory or an association with some act that you have committed or some words that you have spoken or some hate that you have felt does not mean that those experiences are you. It just means you are choosing to play in those experiences.
And when you give yourself permission to have done so and the forgiveness that is right there, available to you, you can then choose what feels best to you in this moment. I choose to love you. I am Ophelia.”
