I think to myself as I get back to my hotel room. We had a very rough day-long business meeting. There were lots of strong personalities with opinions…and yes, I was one of those with opinions! And, we have another full day tomorrow.
“I love you, I’m sorry, forgive me and thank you.” I recall these 4 phrases. It’s the short version of a Hawaiian Healing Technique called Ho’Oponopono that I learned at a Ho’Oponopono workshop and talk about it in my book ‘Manifest a Better Life with God’. I think of it as a way of helping me focus and bless a situation.
I sit on the couch in my hotel room and close my eyes. First, I get centered using Centering Prayer and then picture all of us in the meeting. I slowing start repeating these 4 phrases, “I love you, I’m sorry, forgive me and thank you.” At first, I still feel frustration from the meeting, but as I continue to repeat the phrases my feelings start to soften and a greater sense of calm and peace settles in.
I keep at it for about 40 minutes. But it happens…my feelings genuinely shift and I can feel that ‘all is well.’
“Wow, that was amazing…what a night and day experience!” I say to myself as I get back to my hotel room after our second day. Our second day was, smooth, productive and everyone got along great. It was a completely different experience.
I’ve had numerous experiences where blessing situations shifts them, and so have many of my life coaching clients. “I love you, I’m sorry, forgive me and thank you.” Ho’Oponopono is one of those ways to bless a situation, yourself, others and your world. I share other methods and explain why this is effective in my book.
But, when you shift your Consciousness, you shift your energy and by Law of Consciousness, Law of Attraction, which is an inherent law of your own being conditions can shift.
“When you change your energy, you lift matter to a new mind, and your body vibrates at a faster frequency.” Dr. Joe Dispenza, ‘You are the Placebo’.
My choice was to stay negative, keep thinking about how frustrating and challenging the meeting was or to take charge of my inner world and shift my Consciousness by focusing and thinking differently until I truly and genuinely felt better. Give it a try…
Bless someone or something in your world today!
