After missing last J2P Monday altogether, I’m going a little short and lazy today. When my CranioSacral appointment was cancelled last week my head apparently decided to accomplish more opening on its own so sleep has been sporadic; and here I was trying to get MORE sleep 🙂
Ever since I posted about ho’oponopono a few weeks ago I’ve been trying to get myself to be mindful of doing it whenever something throws me off. The thing is, I trained myself to mindfully remember to repeat the lovingkindness chant whenever I feel off center so that’s what I tend to do.
In one sense the result is the same — they both lead me to a centered, calm space. But as I’ve managed to say the ho’oponopono prayer sometimes instead I’ve noticed there is a difference for me. On the way to calmness, Mornah’s prayer reminds me that everything I see “out there” is me. Whatever I like or don’t like, approve of or am offended by, comes from within me. And I can heal it all in myself. Although the same path is probably contained within the lovingkindness chant I don’t experience that moment of knowing.
Mornah’s prayer leaves my whole body feeling calm. The chant brings all over calm, but it especially ignites energy in my heart.
So I’m curious to hear how others experience them. If you’re willing, try out alternating between healing with the ho’oponopono prayer and with the lovingkindness chant. However you want to switch it up, one all day one day and the other the next or alternating each time you think you need an adjustment back to center. Just see what feelings each one brings. How does it feel in your body? How does it feel in your thoughts? Does one leave you more calm than the other? Where do you feel it in your body?
Divine creator, father, mother, son as one. If I, my family, relatives and ancestors have offended you, your family, relatives and ancestors in thoughts, words, deeds and actions from the beginning of our creation to the present, we ask your forgiveness. Let this cleanse, purify, release, cut all the negative memories, blocks, energies and vibrations and transmute these unwanted energies to pure light. And it is done
The lovingkindness chant:
- I am filled with lovingkindness
- I am well
- I am peaceful and at ease
- I am happy
