🌟 2020, I forgive you 🌟
I love a bit of woo!! Law of attraction makes me happy and you all know that I preach the power of positivity and success mindset😊
As I reflect on the year that was 2020, there is plenty I want to leave behind:
😢 the fear
😢 the overwhelm
😢 the anxiety
😢 the anger
😢 the frustration
😢 the confusion
😢 the exhaustion
But with any reflection, comes peace and comfort. Whilst I am very glad to close this chapter 📖 on a really, really rotten year (for many reasons beyond COVID…. it has been one of the toughest of my life).
But amidst the desire to kick 2020 into touch, this New Year’s Eve I am truly grateful ❤️ for the lessons 2020 has taught me:
🥰 knowing what and who matters
So to close out the year I wanted to share with you the gift of forgiveness… rather than sweep 2020 and all its nastiness under the carpet, I want to celebrate the lessons it has taught me. 🎉
I am entering 2021 a much stronger person and that is down to 2020.
So here it is. My wonderful forgiveness ritual. 🪄 ho’oponopono 🪄
I was introduced to it a few years ago by the amazing @denisedt and it has really helped me deal with challenging situations and people that I need to forgive. This Hawaiian practice of forgiveness is so beautiful and healing. The traditional version of ho’oponopono consists of four main phrases:
❤️ I’m sorry
❤️ forgive me
❤️ I love you
❤️ I am grateful / thank you
They all seek to guide you through these four sentimental steps: repentance, forgiveness, love, and gratitude.
It is so simple, write a list of all the things and people you want to forgive from 2020.
Then for each line, say the four parts of the ho’oponopono prayer “I’m sorry, forgive me, I love you, I thank you”.
Then scribble out that line. Work your way through your forgiveness list. It’s that simple.
It doesn’t take long, it doesn’t have to be perfect but it is so powerful and healing.
I don’t know about you, but after 2020 I really need some healing.
2020 I’m sorry, forgive me, I love you, I’m sorry
