Kicking off forgiveness

Not Just Sassy on the Inside

Tomorrow (at this point technically later today…) I’ll be starting my two weeks of forgiveness so I’ve been working on my ceremony.   Looking forward to getting started.

There are quite a few dates left open if anyone wants to write a post about forgiveness on their blog and add this link somewhere in it:  http://bluegrassnotes.wordpress.com/2014/07/21/a-round-of-forgiveness/  The dates that are taken so far:  Aug. 1, 2, 5, 6, and 14 so the open dates are 3, 4, and 7-13.  If you want to follow along in practicing forgiveness with me, you can post about the experience somewhere along the way.  If you have a past experience regarding forgiveness you can write about that.

In case anyone would like to try out my plan for forgiveness, I thought I’d post  the ceremony script.  My plan is to say the lovingkindness chant and a version of Mornah’s prayer for each person/group for 2-3…

Hew Len and ho’oponopono

Not Just Sassy on the Inside

I’m updating this to make it a post for ABC Wednesday and today the letter is “H”.

A few years ago a friend mentioned Hew Len to me and his work with the Hawaiian concept of ho’oponopono. As she described his teaching that clearing ourselves of memories and attachments (he calls it cleaning) is the most important work we can do–in others words heal ourselves–I was very excited because my own studies had been leading me to that conclusion.  I would love to study with a master who is teaching from that perspective. Unfortunately I’ve not yet had the financial wherewithal to take a workshop but I’ve studied some of the on line information and found that there are some videos on YouTube that can help get started on his teaching.

There are two parts to this video and there’s another one that has nine parts.

Butterfly Journal 12th Month: Joy…Forgiveness & More!

Through the Peacock's Eyes

heart_soulI can’t believe it’s been nearly a year since I began posting some of my entries to my Butterfly Journal. My purpose for writing and creating this journal was to provide a tool to assist others in their personal growth, healing process, and spiritual transformation. Doing the journal myself has helped me to heal through a very challenging time in my life – after having freely chosen to completely end one life to start a new one from scratch, I had to delay my own rebirth for almost two years. If you haven’t been following along, you can learn much of the story in my previous Butterfly Journal posts here.

As difficult as it all was, I knew that I was in the midst of growing pains inside my own cocoon. I have seen through this entire process that I was going through a major healing and clearing phase…
