The angels are advising us to "be willing to forgive" and they also acknowledge that we are making "steady progress."
So much of us look at what we could be doing better and we beat ourselves up for actions of the past. I interpret this as encouragement that we are on the right path and making progress towards our goals or life purpose. Don't feel guilty about any lapses you think you have made. Forgive yourself for what you think you've done or not done.
Learn and grow from your challenges, don't let them stop you from moving forward on your life path. Be willing to trade pain for peace-your angels can help you.
Ask your angels to help-the benefits of forgiveness include increased peace of mind, renewed energy and the ability to focus. Doesn't that sound nice?
In a quiet location or while falling asleep, say the following either out loud or silently (the angels hear your thoughts):
"Archangel Raphael, I call upon you now. I am willing to forgive [name of person, organization or situation] and release all stored-up anger from my physical, mental and emotional bodies. I am willing to release pain, in exchange for peace."
Then breath in and out deeply, which enables you to be open to Raphael's loving and powerful cleansing process. Repeat this step as necessary if you ever find yourself ruminating about anger or resentment.
