Fox Mountain Essences for Forgiveness in Healing

by Ziporah Hildebrandt

An excerpt from the forthcoming book "Flower Essences of Fox Mountain: a Guide to Self-Healing and Re-Connecting with Earth and Spirit." The first sections of this book will be available on Kindle in 2013.

Forgiveness is an important part of the healing process. Deep and powerful, forgiveness is divine. Sweeping through the entire being, cleansing every cell and energy center in the body, forgiveness comes through the soul from the divine source within.

After people experience this healing transformation, they may say things like, "I understand now why he did that to me," and, "It's okay, I forgive and love her." This is not condoning or denying hurtful behavior. Mere words are not forgiveness. Hearing this from people who were before filled with bitterness shows how complete the transformation of forgiveness truly is.

True forgiveness is not easy. First we must feel those feelings we usually avoid--pain, fear, hatred, rage, shame, betrayal, anguish, loss. Feelings most of us were taught were not okay to express or even feel. When suppressed, emotions build in intensity, often growing huge and terrifying within us. To forgive and heal, these shadowy monsters must be met with love and acceptance.

True forgiveness is letting go. Like releasing the string of a kite, anger, hate, blame, pain and being a victim sail away out of sight in the heavenly blue. You probably still remember what happened. But the trauma and "charge" is gone from the memory. You know how you felt, but you realize you don't have to feel that way now, because it's over, in the past. You've stopped holding on.

In a flood or a gentle whisper, you receive the understanding that everything was a step on life's journey. No one is off the karmic hook for what happened. But the pain of the past is gone, replaced with love. Love for yourself now, love for the self you were then, love for those who hurt you, because they are each--like you--divine souls struggling on the path of life.

True forgiveness is forgiving yourself. It is often easier to open our hearts to love others than it is to turn divine love upon ourselves and all the imperfections we know so intimately. Yet the soul is infinitely tender. In its awareness, our flaws are cherished as varied aspects of our experiences on the path to wholeness.

Many of us keep the soul--the most vulnerable, exquisitely sensitive core of our beingness--deep inside defensive walls. Cracking those walls takes courage and trust, for until we experience the nourishing faith of the soul, how do we know for sure divinity is in us?

Flower essences bring us closer to our souls. They connect us to sources of knowing beyond the intellect. By working with essences and self-awareness, we are guided towards divine love and divine forgiveness. The Flower Essences of Fox Mountain are made with great love, with divine faith and healing as their inspiration. I have found them to be deep and powerful, yet gentle in action, wise and full of soul.
