Deep Forgiveness Frees up Enormous Energy for Healing

With religion fading in many lives, what do we do with our mistakes, some terrible ones?  We need ways to forgive ourselves and other people without the mediation of the church or religious teaching, no longer viable for many.

Ho’oponopono is the most powerful way I’ve come across. It is the ancient Hawaiian method to keep peace among island peoples and has worked for thousands of years. Most recently it has worked in my own life and my daughter’s.

The only way to truly heal any rift is to take 100% responsibility for what has happened.  At first, blame or denial may be far more attractive and satisfying but they will simply keep the situation festering. The drain on your system will be considerable and can even lead to disease.

At first you may not mean the words but persist; you soon will find that you do mean them. You’ll need to keep on repeating these four phrases, adding to them and making them your own as the situation calls for. Eventually, you will feel the situation clear and you’ll feel much lighter and happier.

My daughter was in a terrible car accident that left her with 14 broken bones and a severe brain injury. Part of her recovery involved doing this practise. In her blog, she recommends it and I, too, strongly encourage you. Read her story, where she talks about her own reaction to this here:

By dismantling deep anger and blame, we free up energy for recovery and thriving. Life gets a lot happier and more rewarding.  Good luck!

About jm

Jane Moody offers advanced modalities of energy treatment, bodywork and counselling. A dynamic group of skills, gathered though extensive training (1800 hours of instruction in health therapies in addition to her BA.), can heal the roots of psychological suffering that prevent a satisfying life. The inspiration behind this work began in my early twenties after earning a B.A. from Vassar College in New York. I wanted to study both Medicine and Comparative Religion. I didn't do either but the interest stayed fresh. In the late 80's, I began my studies with a 16 weekend training leading to a certificate in Gestalt Therapy. A year later, I found a way to combine both earlier interests when I read Barbara Brennan's book, Hands of Light. I studied at her school for one year (1989/90) but decided against returning for family and personal reasons. That year, I had also completed a year's study in anatomy and physiology at Dalhousie University. By taking a taped course in "Awakening the Light Body", I was able to keep my knowledge growing. A few years later, I learned the bodywork of the Lightbody - "Flow Alignment and Connection". The next fall, it became possible to attend The School of Enlightened Healing in New York City (now in Asheville NC) and I graduated from there, 3 years later, with certification as a "Hands-on Healer" (1997). My practice began with Flow Alignment and gradually incorporated the new knowledge gained at this healing school in New York. Short weekend courses in Japanese Acupressure and Myofascial Release broadened my scope of bodywork techniques. In June of 2001, I graduated from A Society of Souls, Jason's Shulman's three year School for health professionals in Integrated Kabbalistic Healing. This powerful work is now the center of a range of healing skills that I bring to my clients. I live in East Chester, Nova Scotia with offices there and in Halifax, as well as a long distance practice by telephone.
