Nature’s Gifts for Letting Go
It’s true that everybody hurts. Someone or something has caused us pain to some degree. Some pain seems too cutting, too cruel, too ghastly to face, let alone forgive and let go, even if it would be healing for us to do so. But as you will see, it’s ultimately worth it. Let’s look at forgiveness and letting go, along with some of the crystals nature has gifted us to help us heal.
What Forgiveness Isn’t
Were you taught that the only way to fully forgive meant you had to accept what happened? That you had to allow the person or people who tore your heart out by the roots, destroyed your life, and made you not want to live anymore to come back into your life? And were you expected to hug them, to smile as though nothing happened, and never speak of it again?
Were you taught that not only did you have to forgive in
this way, but that you also had to forget the evil done to you or your forgiveness
was not valid? That if you still felt like you were drowning in pain you were
somehow a bad person not worthy of love? That feels a whole lot like
victim-blaming and victim-shaming and it’s no surprise that many people say
they cannot and will not forgive or forget. Ever.
What Forgiveness Is
We are subject to all kinds of pain, anguish, and trauma. None of
it is easy to let go of and forgive. It just isn’t. But hanging on to anger and
hurt can poison the vessel holding it and cause the soul to wither and die long
before the body does. To forgive helps you to let go of the agony. Forgiveness
and letting go are the keys that open the prison door of pain and set you free.
Methods for Forgiveness with Crystals
Talk to Them
There are different ways to forgive. One way is to tuck some of the supportive crystals listed below in your pocket or purse and take the offending person aside. If they will listen, you can talk it out. Often, they will apologize and feel relieved for a chance to resolve the pain.
If you have ever wronged another, and it is you seeking
forgiveness, then of course you would do whatever you could to make amends for
it. It will be lovely if the person you inadvertently hurt is able to forgive
you, but you must also forgive yourself.
But if this approach doesn’t work, or isn’t a possibility, then another one of the most effective ways to forgive is to hold the crystals you’ve chosen in your hands and visualize yourself giving back the pain to whatever or whoever caused it. You are not saying what they did is okay. You are giving it back to them to carry and freeing yourself from this burden. In your mind’s eye, see this pain as a filled black sack and hand it to them so they can carry it. They caused this hurt, and it belongs to them, not you.
Write a Letter
Or you can write a letter expressing your anguish, then set
it aside and later decide if you want to send it to them or not. It won’t
matter if they respond or not, because doing this will set you free from holding
onto it any longer, and it’s a gift you give yourself.
If the person who hurt you has passed away, just visualize
them while holding your crystals and talk to them about the hurt and heartache
they caused you. They will hear you in Spirit. Then give them the pain back so
you can be free of it. They will take it, and feel remorse for hurting you, and
you will sense them asking for your forgiveness. If you forgive them, it helps you
heal, and it helps them make greater progress as a spirit.
Learning to Let Go
Once you have resolved to forgive and let go, focus on these healing crystals, and fill your mind and heart with all the good things you want to create for yourself and the loveliness you may already have in your life. In this way, you are programming your special crystals to assist you in this quest. Forgiveness is often a process of having to forgive again and again until the pain lessens, but it’s worth it for the restoration of your own deep inner peace. “To err is human, to forgive divine.” ~ Alexander Pope
