(Johannesburg, South Africa)
I am so gratefull I was able to forgive my mother a couple of years before she passed away. We never had an open relationship where we confided in each other. When I started my spiritual walk, I realised that my mother truly loved me and had done the best she knew how. During an Angel workshop meditation, I forgave my mother and let go of all the anger and disappointment I felt towards her. In its place came compassion and my mother immediately sensed it and we developed a very special bond up to the time she passed away.
When she passed away, I felt very angry I was not able to spend more mom and daughter time with her - I felt robbed of my time with her.
In spite of this - I am happy and thankful I was able to forgive her while she was alive and develop a great relationship with her - even if it was for a short period of time.
