This blog is all about you healing you through the vibration of your own voice. How powerful is that?
Sound has been known to be a powerful healer throughout the times. Let’s create some sounds to resonate throughout our entire bodies- engaging our conscious minds and rearranging material on a deep cellular level!
It’s so engaging that it will, indeed, break dis-serving cycles. Our body functions on cycles and rhythms, the waves of our nervous system & our brain waves. Resetting these vibrations will help bring us back into balance. If anything, feeding the following words to your system will at least give you a break from the repeating thoughts, and that’s gotta be liberating in it of itself! Try’em out, wontcha?
Of course, we all know forgiveness is really about liberating ourselves from pain, and not so much about the other person or situation at all.
The first chant is derived from a Buddhist prayer. If there is someone in particular you are forgiving, you may insert their name in the blank:
May I be free of suffering. May I be at peace. May I be well.
May ______ be free of suffering. May _______ be at peace. May ________ be well.
May all beings be free of suffering. May all beings be at peace. May all beings be well.
Beautiful, isn’t it? Dontcha feel so peaceful after saying it? Imagine repeating it a few times over!!! It’s a really incredible feeling. My favorite part is the last part. Sometimes when we’re so caught up in the anger-cycle, we forget what a great big world we’re living in. There are billions of us here. Focusing on this one thing, or this one single person, or even those 5 years of your life seems kinda silly when one puts it in perspective. We’re all in this together, may your forgiveness have a healing ripple effect on the lives of many others. May you be liberated to love and live the rest of your days fully.
Next up, here’s a chant to help:
I forgive you.
You forgive me.
Let us be in peace.
Let us be in love.
Repeat, repeat, repeat!
And, finally, I’ve written about this one before, Ho’oponopono is an ancient Hawaiian meditation chant:
I am sorry.
Please forgive me.
I love you.
I love this one because it’s all about accountability. Like, “What is it in ME that is causing this event to take place?” That’s right, this chant puts you back in the driver’s seat! The blame game will only forfeit your power – if all of this is not your fault, how can you prevent it from ever happening again? When we take accountability, we are better able to see past the blame game and into the lessons and illuminate our own underlying patterns that have co-created the event. Perhaps it’s our insecurities, our the people-pleaser in us, our outspokenness or our silence that helped co-create this event. Repeat this chant, take accountability for your part in it, forgive yourself, forgive others and empower yourself. YOU ROCK! Own it!
Lemme know how it goes! Which was your favorite exercise and why?
