It’s never about forgiving others. It’s only about forgiving yourself.
For not knowing better, for not being able to foresee where it was going, for not having the power to not engage with that which hurt you. For being smaller, unprepared and having less mental and physical power. For allowing yourself to be in the same space with what or who abused you, for trusting it and allowing it to rob you of your life energy. For poisoning you and your future, your perception and decisions along your path.
But, no, you don’t have to forgive them. You can’t, it’s not your job. It’s not your responsibility to repair what they themselves decided, consciously or subconsciously. It’s your job to forgive yourself. And it’s theirs to forgive themselves.
You can try to forgive them, but it will never guarantee their changed behavior, that’s still a job for them to do and you don’t have any power over that. Thinking that if you forgive them, they will stop doing what they do, is an illusion which will cost you in the future and you will end up resenting them, and yourself – again – for it. Then, the act of forgiving them will get harder. And the next time, harder, and so on. It’s a vicious cycle from which you benefit for a second, in that brief time when you expect them to correct their behavior, until they do it again; and it benefits them, because they get to take you by surprise and steal that life energy to feed their inner wounds with.
Abusers and toxic people are wounded people. You can have compassion for them, you can try to show them the way, but you can never heal for them. As long as you act as a temporary holder of the wound, they will never heal.
Forgive yourself. Heal. Let others, including your abusers, do the same. You don’t own their journeys. But you can own yours.

This weekend is a very powerful one for all humanity.
It’s marked by an astrological alignment that happens on a 250 thousand years point.
We have Equinox energy + New Moon in Virgo energy + post Sun Eclipse resonance + 12 stars alignment energy (including the Sun and the Moon) + 12 lessons of the soul cycle completion (absorbing and integrating the 12 archetypes). Not to mention all the political parallels and great physical transformations of our planet, within the past few weeks…
It’s an unprecedented portal and you can harness its power.
We are being reborn, and as long as we are in congruence and alignment with the positive forces of the Universe, it will bestow powerful gifts. If we resist change, or align with the dense forces, it will drag us with them. Ask yourself: do I want and welcome change? or do I want more of the same?
Stay centered and focus on the positive, allow your vibration to rise and keep you at a constant flow and speed, so that you don’t break.
Trust that all is divine and that the divine never forgets you, you just have to embrace being a part of it, and therefore more powerful than you think, as we are all connected.
Breathe, rest, let go, allow yourself to be transformed by the vortex of these days and its ripples, in the weeks and months to come. Namaste.
If you feel you want to dig deeper, here are a few online resources:
Two brilliant astrologers I follow:
a 10 minutes OHM Mantra video to help raise your vibration throughout the day:
art, birth, blend, bliss, breath, circle, collage, digital, divine, download, energy, eternal, feel, God, grace, heart, human, knowing, life, light, magic, patterns, perception, photography, power, reflection, self, soul, timeless, transparent, vibration, you
You have to know there was magic in the moment and space of your making.
And you have to know it never left.
It is there, every breath.
You only changed your perception of it. You only forgot how it feels for a while.
But it’s there, eternal, waiting for you to see it with your heart again.
Bliss. Grace. Power.
You are of it.

Sometimes, I think that the reason we are so addicted to entertainment and its stars is because we subconsciously know that we each poses a spectacle inside, but are too afraid to manifest it. They do what we think we can’t. They are what we don’t know how to be yet. So we sit and watch as we identify ourselves with the characters portrayed, and we vicariously live for a moment, as they do it for us.
But someday that will be us. Someday, we will know how to, and we won’t need to be entertained anymore.
