The Book of Ho'oponoponoMy friend told me about Ho’oponopono which is a Hawaiian expression which means to make things right. The way to do that is to say:

“I’m Sorry
Please Forgive Me.
Thank You.
I Love You”.

You can also put “I love You” at the beginning. You can do that for yourself or for your relationships with others. It will help you heal and will improve your life when you say this to yourself. Healing will also take place when you do it for others as well, and they don’t have to be present.

I’ve been doing this when I remember personal and professional conflicts that I have had in my life. I think of the situation, but this time I view it from their point of view and see where they are coming from. I then say the four lines and then release it. It does make me feel a lot better. It reminds me of Gary Craig’s book called “The Unseen Therapist” where he says that the pain and the diseases that we have, are from negative emotions that we’ve had in the past like anger, sadness, fear, or guilt. The process is described completely in his free eBook where we use the Unseen Therapist, who is actually our Divine Self, to heal our ailment. Gary Craig was the original founder of the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) or tapping. He says that this new technique is even better because it addresses the cause rather than the symptoms.

Doing Ho’oponopono or using the Unseen Therapist will help to create oneness and that has been the core of many religions. One of my favorite songs from the 60’s was “Get Together” by the Youngbloods. When I would visit my mother on Sundays in the nursing home, the activities director would gather some of the patients for readings, or to sing or listen to hymns. The director would ask the group for a hymn that they knew, and she would look it up on her computer that was hooked up to a large monitor on a cart. Once she asked me if there was something that I wanted to listen to, and I said, “’Get Together’ by the Youngbloods”. She kind of raised her eye at me but used Google to look it up and played it. Much to her surprise, the group really liked it, and others nearby came by to listen. I told her “If that isn’t Jesus Christ”, I don’t know what is.

Our pastor made a couple of profound statements that got everyone to think. He said that we love God as much as those that we love the least. And do we pray for the demise of those that we disagree with, or do we pray for their conversion. “Namaste” is a word that we use in yoga at the end of class to respectfully honor each other. Just think if everyone had that word in their head for everyone that they encounter. It seems like I’m hearing the same message from several different sources. I accuse my teacher in my class that he and the pastor must talk to each other. He says that they have same guides that are speaking to them. It then occurred to me that if we are all children of God, then we should like it.
