Today I want to share with you a long known healing prayer originating in Hawaii, called “Ho’oponopono” that makes a huge difference in how we feel about things in ourselves and our lives, including our interaction with others, events that take place and so forth. I bring this to you because I believe in order to make the world a better place, we need to make shifts in ourselves too, to accommodate that change, and, like Gandhi had said, be the change you want to see in the world.
So let’s explore this simple prayer: I’m sorry, please forgive me, thank you, I love you.
That is it. Yet the energy of this is deeply and profoundly healing. Using this prayer brings acceptance for everything that affects your state of being, which is up to you, a choice to continue with the difficulty or release it, thus clearing the energies that you may have attracted into your life.
Forgiveness, as we all know, if a powerful antidote to holding onto conflict. When we practice this way of being, we find ourselves moving quickly to more peace and less resistance to others not yet open to heal or change.
I’m Sorry, releases the holding onto patterns and opens the doorway towards healing and recovery.
Thank you, takes us towards gratitude for the lessons of life and the ability to grow from them.
I love you, reignites the deeper bonds of love that underlay all things including that of universal love (God, source etc), and self love, after all, we must care a whole lot to be affected by the situation in the first place.
Sometimes we are so caught up in the right or wrong of something, that we forget that while we stay in it, we are locked into that energy exchange of warring factions, and quiet honestly, why do you need to stay in the suffering when you could be free. You know in yourself what you believe to be your truth, and in reality, do you really need to have the other side agree? No, not really. You can agree to disagree and be done with it, move on, move forward and cherish your peace by allowing it in.
We perhaps need to find the courage first to begin this new way, and in that, we can be kind to those parts of ourselves holding onto old hurts and injustices. My invitation to you, is to give it a go, see what it does for you in your world, see what shifts can happen, in yourself and those around you. I would love to hear how this goes for you too.
One of my philosophies on life is to do your best to enjoy the day you are in. What I have found to be true is while we hold onto old hurts, we live in the past, or worry about the future and not spend much time just being present to all the beauty that is happening now. Ho’oponopono is one of the ways this can change things quickly for you.
And if no-one has told you lately, I believe in you!
Mahatma Gandhi famously said, "You must be the change you want to see in the world." In other words, although life changes are inevitable, we can also initiate personal change so we can rise to the challenge and become a bigger and better person as a result.
