There are two predominant energies enlightening human beings are often reluctant to acknowledge within themselves or express – grief and anger. They feel the emotions are not spiritual enough, are not valid because they are not in line with their highest selves, or do not wish to add what they consider to be a negative emotion to the collective. Dear Ones, we urge you to take the time to lovingly create a space to fully and safely feel any unresolved emotions you may have.
Your emotions, all of them, are part of your human experience. Not acknowledging them does not make them not exist, it simply keeps them as an active part of your energetics. If you don’t take the time to fully experience them and honour them, they will frequently bubble up in their desire to be loved back into wholeness.
If you have lost someone you love, your grief is a beautiful indication of how much you cared. Even though you know through your beliefs that the soul, and your relationship lives on, albeit in a different form, it is perfectly appropriate and recommended to allow yourself time to grieve the loss of the physical presence of that person in your life. You go through a profound energetic shift when a loved one transitions, and your grieving process is what allows you to process that shift. Your tears are cleansing and healing.
So many enlightening human beings have been misunderstood, abused, ridiculed, abandoned, rejected, or dismissed, not only in this lifetime, but in previous life expressions. Not acknowledging the justifiable anger of such mistreatment is to keep yourself in victim consciousness. Your anger is appropriate if you can see it as a desire to experience fairness, proper treatment, and to be respected and treated in ways that honour you.
Your anger over mistreatment is a tool to move you into creating healthier boundaries and expressing your own self love as your own loving guide and parent. Allow yourself to feel how things were not okay, to process those feelings, and to move forward in a way that is healthier, more balanced, and empowered.
Anger is fear yelling for love and protection. Transmute your anger, and your fear, by showing up for yourselves with understanding and reassurance. Grief frequently accompanies anger and fear particularly if you have been victimized. Understand that if you have been abused your innocence is still available to you in the form of your inner child. It is never too late to go back and give yourself the care, protection, love, and understanding you deserved and never got. You are absolutely capable of holding the space for your own healing. From that place of wisdom and self responsibility, you will also be willing to reach out for extra support if you need it.
Once you have allowed yourself to fully feel the emotions that can seem so scary and unspiritual, but deserve your love and attention, you will be able to truly move forward in lighter and more empowered ways. Allow those emotions to come up in their own rhythm as they are ready to be healed, trusting in the wisdom of your soul, and love all of it as a sacred practice of acceptance and transmutation, for all of you is divine and beautiful, especially the tender human part of you. ~Archangel Gabriel through Shelley Young
