The last Tuesday night of every month we offer what we call an Akashic Gathering. It’s a chance for those who have taken our training course to go into their Akashic Records at the same time on the same topic, receive and share their guidance, and learn from one another. Typically I ask the Records for the question or exercise for that month, send it out a few days before, and facilitate the conference call. No surprise, we always learn a lot, and last month’s call was no exception.
Our topic was “The Power in Apology and it was a follow-up to the recent blog post by the same title.
“Apology,” the Records reminded us, “is often the magic button that inspires forgiveness. It can be powerfully healing, whether the forgiveness is actually granted, or not.” Several of us were grateful for that very experience during our call.
In the third part of the exercise we asked our Records whether there was an apology we’d love to hear, but have yet to receive. As promised, we simply needed to acknowledge that we wanted to receive an apology, describe what we thought it would do for us, and then allow the power of the Divine to work its magic. In at least one case, the healing impact was greater than the person even imagined.
The last part of the exercise was equally magical. Here we asked whether there was an apology we have yet to offer that would bring us healing. We asked our Records what might be different in our lives were we to offer this apology. Again, many shared how they received the emotional healing they desired, even without apologizing directly to the other party involved.
We also had an interesting theme among our answers. Many of us were guided to offer apologies to ourselves, most often for putting the concerns of others before our own needs. Our Records showed us how our attempts to “first do no harm” can literally backfire. When we think we are saving others from harm, we may simply be unfairly redirecting the impact toward ourselves. Harm is still done, nonetheless. And the person we think we are protecting is deprived of the opportunity to learn from the natural consequences of the situation. So our intention to do no harm, simply reallocates it, and actually prevents the other from learning and expanding spiritually from the experience.
None of us on this call was a stranger to the power of forgiveness. As I’ve said before, it’s a popular topic in the Akashic Records. Yet, I don’t think any of us were expecting apologies offered and received in the Records to be so healing – and perhaps more healing than we’ve experienced in our three-dimensional lives.
It’s such an interesting phenomenon. We’ve had enough experience to know, and even expect, to be both surprised and amazed by our Akashic Records – and yet we’re always surprised when we are.
