This is a big one for me and for many of my patients who are trying to conceive. I know it is a hard one to accept, but our minds are so intrinsically involved with our health. I know, it sounds so incredibly logically, but so many of us forget.
I am reading a book, Anita & Me, by Meera Syal http://www.contemporarywriters.com/authors/?p=auth94. In this book the main character’s mother explains that thinking negative thoughts will turn our bodies ugly:
…mama informed me, rather proudly I thought, that Mrs. Lowbridge was not even forty, and the smoking and bad luck had chiselled all those weary draggin lines around her eyes and mouth. “That’s why you must always count your blessings, beti, and never think negative thoughts. If your mind is depressed, your body will soon follow…”
So, why not? Ask for forgiveness. And forgive others. It is worth a try. Our babies and new beings to this earth need to know that they are wanted and welcomed to this earth. How much better is a party when you are invited?? [Well in my case, I’ll show up regardless!!]
We can recieve and offer forgiveness by using the Ho’oponopono Hawaiian method of forgiveness. Homeopathy often works in my patients to allow them to let go and move forward. Also, we can use Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT).
This week I visited two health practitioners in Hong Kong who practice these methods of forgiveness treatment. At Holistic Central http://www.holistic-central.com/site/, my voodoo therapist, Angela Cummins http://www.angelacummins.com/about talked me through the hooponopono method from Hawaii. After an extenstive conversation and Neurolinguistic Programming techniques, Angela and I uncovered some deep issues attached to forgiveness. We used the process as described on Zara’s blog http://zarashea.com/2010/03/24/forgiveness-and-the-powerful-hawaiian-practice-of-hooponopono/:
Ready to learn the process? It’s very easy. You simply repeat the following four magical phrases with focused and positive intent. [You can use] the other person’s name as well…
The process goes like this:
Please forgive me.
I love you.
Often as children we are scolded for being “naughty” – yet we cannot understand the reason for the scolding. In my own memories of being in nursery school, I remember my teacher giving me a time-out and taking away the treats I had brought for my classmates because I was singing. Can you believe?
With Caroline Rhodes at Body Group http://www.thebodygroup.com/ I was able to visit my three-year old self to comfort her and tell her she is not naughty when she sings out loud. [Even when it is in the elevator of the Kailey Tower building.] My higher mind and the higher mind of my nursery school teacher were able to have a conversation. I understood that it was not me, but my teacher’s own lessons from childhood that taught her children should not sing at random opportunities. If you are reading this blog, next time we meet, sing “puzzle-book, puzzle-book” and the benefits of my EFT therapy session with Caroline will be increased multifold!
So take a chance on a new opportunity coming into your life by letting go of old patterns of hatred and regret and guilt. Let go of the past and let new life into your body!
