17 The Angel Of Forgiveness – Reversed

What do reversed cards/card strength mean?

This angel is seen holding the lily of purity with which it blesses those asking for forgiveness. Brotherhood is a natural consequence when we forgive others. Forgiveness means we release the tears of past hurts and the anger of past resentment, to line with the love of the angels in the here and now.

The Angel Of Forgiveness

Belonging to the REALM: Heaven of Creation , The Angel of Forgiveness is in the group known as Dominions.
ANGELIC FUNCTION: To help us forgive and release the past
GIFTS FOR THE EARTH: This angel can help us to honour and empower ourselves when we forgive others; live in the present when we forgive the past; create the space for intimacy to thrive when we forgive others

The Angel of Forgiveness encourages and prompts us to look at past hurts and resentments in a new light. We gain in self-respect and wisdom when we are able to let go of the past and forgive those who have hurt us. Otherwise we remain stuck in believing we are victims, with no possibility of altering our lives.

Forgiveness does not mean we condone bad behaviour, nor does it mean we necessarily have to like the people who treated us badly. It does mean, however, that as we forgive others we release our anger and resentment. When we forgive we are left with lightness of spirit and a good feeling about ourselves. Without that we do not have any possibility for true empowerment. We would still believe that others did us wrong and we would always carry that resentment. It corrodes our insides; it is the stuff disease is made of. We perpetrate abuse and injustice on ourselves by carrying negative feelings around with us.

Forgiveness sets us free and helps to open up a deeper channel for relating to others. We may need help to forgive, and The Angel of Forgiveness offers us the grace to find tenderness in our hearts and the courage to ask for assistance when forgiveness seems too daunting a task.

Forgiveness helps us to be receptive to healing and to love. When we forgive we are increasing our levels of self-esteem, because, in fact, the point of real power rests only within us. We are, in effect, saying we no longer wish to be victims of abuse, treachery, or any other form of negativity which impedes our happiness. Forgiveness, like acknowledgement, is what helps us grow into happy and healthy people.
We can ask The Angel of Forgiveness to show us the path to releasing blame and hurt. It is really only our willingness to free ourselves from the burden of negativity that will kick-start the process of healing. This release gives us the opportunity to clean up other aspects of our lives where there may be hidden resentments and sorrows blocking our joy. By asking The Angel of Forgiveness to help us release our negativity we are enabling the process of healing to start.

Elements of the Psychic World: Humans have been guided by their inner voices since the beginning of time. The Bible refers to the Voice of God speaking to the prophets and kings. The ancient Greeks received guidance through daimons or divine spirits that offered guidance by whispering it into the ears of men and women. The shamans of many cultures use the voices in their heads for divine guidance. In Yoga the energy centre for clairaudience is the throat area, and it is thought that when it is clear you can open yourself up to inner hearing. Great men and women in history have experienced clairaudience. For example, Joan of Arc claimed to hear the voices of her angel spirit guides St Catherine, St Margaret and St Michael. In the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries messages from the spirits received clairaudiently were an established part of many séances. Today clairaudience often occurs in psychic readings.

Angel Insights : Using your guardian angels’ names might help you stay more connected to them, or make your guardian angels seem more ‘real’ to you. Asking for help or guidance for a family member by addressing your loved one’s guardian angels by name can also make you feel more empowered and connected to the angel realm.
