"I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. I love you."

Do these words seem familiar to you? I know and we use them everyday of our lives. But did you know that this a very powerful prayer that you can use to heal yourself and others. You don't have to touch others to heal them but to just say the prayer to yourself AND accepting responsibility of the situation can heal and change the way a situation is or how a person is treating you.

Why take responsibility when it isn't really your fault? Have you heard of generational curse? It works something similar to that. The dynamics is similar to that. Everything that is happening to us in the present is a result of our ancestors' actions. In other words, if I may say , 'karma' if you believe in that.

The things that you are experiencing right now, is something that your ancestors had done in the past. So in accepting responsibility for the situation, and asking for forgiveness for that, you are able to change the dynamics of the present situation you are in.

I know this sounds kind of woowoo but this is an ancient Hawaiian prayer. The person who re-introduced this to the world was Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len , the doctor who cured every patient in the criminally insane ward of a Hawaii`i State Hospital without even seeing them personally. He just worked on their patient's records with Hooponopono and the patients just became calm. Dr. Hew Len was a student of Morrnah Nalamaku Simeona, who was recognized as a kahuna lapaʻau in Hawaiʻi and taught her updated version of hoʻoponopono throughout the United States, Asia, and Europe.

There are 2 significant Hooponopono practitioners that worked closely with Dr. Hew Len, Dr. Joe Vitale and Mabel Katz. I took the Hoonopono certification with Dr. Joe Vitale. 

So how do you use the prayer? There are four steps :

  1. Step 1: Repentance – JUST SAY: I'M SORRY. ...
  2. Step 2: Ask Forgiveness – SAY: PLEASE FORGIVE ME. ...
  3. Step 3: Gratitude – SAY: THANK YOU. ...
  4. Step 4: Love – SAY: I LOVE YOU.
This is what you call a cleansing. Dr. Hew Len said that we need to be cleansing all the time. And to do that in a faster way is to just recite " I'm sorry, please forgive me. Thank you, I love you." over and over again. Before you do something that's very important to you, for example, appeasing a person's anger towards you, you can start cleansing.You don't have to chant this to them, or say it in their face. You can just do it on your own. Dr. Hew Len would cleanse 4x before he would go and talk to someone. 

There are other things about Ho'oponopono than just the prayer. There are tools that you can use to cleanse like the blue solar water. But that needs another whole new post.

I would vouch for the effectivity of this prayer 100%. If you do it the right way, you will find the peace you've wanted for so long.

If you've always believed in the Law of Attraction, you'd know something about abundance and manifestations. And I do, I've been studying LOA for quite sometime now and I can say that I did manifested some things in my life, whether unknowingly or intentionally.

Ever since I read The Secret , I've been hooked and I was adamant to know what the real secret to manifesting your desires was, how it worked, why some say that it didn't worked for them or like they were missing a piece of information about how to manifest the right way. I want to expound and write more about this in a separate post. 

So back to the Abundance prayer, I found this online. A little disclaimer: THIS IS NOT MINE. And if the other bloggers or write-ups said about this prayer, it's from an anonymous source. I tried googling for the real author so I can give proper credits, but I had no luck. So if you might know, please do let me know.

Having the prayer is one thing, using it is another thing. How do you use it? The abundance prayer is not your ordinary type of prayer. In the prayer, you are already acknowledging that you are in an abundant state. When you say this prayer, you are not asking from a place of scarcity, but from a place of abundance. And that abundance comes from God.

I believe that when I started using this, it gave me a different perspective on prayer. The traditional or the old way that I would pray, and I know most of you still do it, is to beg. When you pray the Abundance Prayer, you are not begging, but actually affirming that you are abundant, and that you are calling forth the abundance that is in God.

This prayer is not selfish, because at the end of the prayer, you are also affirming that everyone receives that same goodness that you received.  How many times have we prayed in the past that we really did not think about the rest of the world? Sometimes we get so engrossed with our own needs that we forgot to ask for the same for our brethren. 

I say it twice a day, one in the morning and one in the evening. I think there's no harm in incorporating this to your prayer time/ritual. Just make sure that you are praying with the right emotions. 

It's easier and faster to manifest your desires when you are in your highest vibration. So set yourself into the highest frequency, and then say your prayers.

So, here is the Abundance prayer.   I also created this in a downloadable/printable pdf form, you can put it up on your wall. Get it here it's free.

From The Light of God that I Am. 
From The Love of God that I Am. 
From The Power of God that I Am. 
From The Heart of God that I Am.

I decree:

I dwell in the midst of infinite abundance. The abundance of God is my infinite source. The river of life never stops flowing. It flows through me into lavish expression.  Good comes to me through unexpected avenues and God works in a myriad of ways to bless me.  I now open my mind to receive my good.  Nothing is too good to be true. Nothing is too wonderful to have happen.  With God as my source, nothing amazes me.  I am not burdened by thoughts of past or future. One is gone. The other is yet to come.  
By the power of my belief, coupled with my purposeful, fearless actions and my deep rapport with God, my future is created and my abundance made manifest.  I ask and accept that I am lifted in this and every moment into higher truth. My mind is quiet.  From this day forward I give freely and fearlessly into life and life gives back to me with magnificent increase.  Blessings come in expected and unexpected ways. God provides for me in wondrous ways.  I AM indeed grateful. And I let it be so. 
I wish the same for the goodness of all.

It's my 44th birthday! This year, I didn't have anything special planned, maybe I would like to be spontaneous for once. And since it's my birthday, I want to take a day of not really caring so much about other people, but myself. Allow me to indulge in self-love and self-care today.

I used to have birthday rituals but I don't exactly know when I have stopped doing it. Maybe because I thought it was not really working for me. Or maybe because I was doing it the wrong way. This time, I want to create a new set of birthday rituals that I would be doing each time my birthday comes.

Self-love is always going to be a priority even when it's not my birthday, but more importantly during my birthday. So you will notice that most of what is in my ritual would be focused only on me. This is in no way going to be a selfish one, but I just believe that if I don't take care and love myself more than anyone can love me, then I cannot give love to others. As they say, you can't give what you don't have.

So anyway, as I want to be spontaneous today, so will this blog post be. I want to write as I think about it because I feel that my feelings are more authentic when I write spontaneously and what you read is the real me.

Morning meditation. I do this everyday, but today's going to be a special meditation because I want to listen to Deepak Chopra's abundance meditation. I also did some abundance prayer, there's one that I found on the internet and its really awesome, but most of all, it resonates with my intentions.

Gratitude journal. I also do this everyday, but if there's a day that you would want to write down your blessings, it would be on your birthday. Go the extra mile.I usually write 10 things I am thankful about on a daily basis, but on this particular day, I want to write 20.

Luxurious bath. I love luxurious baths. I have a special body wash that a friend gave me and that I only use on special occasions or when I feel a little perk me up. So, I'm gonna use that wash and add some rose petals, Himalayan salt and some herbs in my bath and do some grounding and sending positive energies to my bath.

Eat cake. If there's one thing that I want to be on the dining table during my birthday would be a birthday cake. I charged the birthday cake with my intentions for the coming years. I don't really blow out candles on my cake on my birthdays. I would just buy a cake. But this time, I will actually send out intentions as I blow out the candles on my cake.

Drink wine. I feel luxurious and feel good when I drink wine. I guess because I feel a bit of sophistication when I do drink wine with cheese slices.

I know, I know, these may be superficial to some, but for me, this is how I feel good and how I feel my value.

What rituals do you do to celebrate your birthday?
