When I feel out of alignment with inner peace in any way, or have a judgment about myself or another, I use the ancient Hawaiian technique of Ho’oponopono to realign myself.
The technique involves first focusing on whatever it is I’m judging or having a problem with. I say to myself: “I’m sorry, forgive me, thank you, I love you.” I’m sorry and forgive me is asking my Inner Presence to forgive the egoic (separate) self for thinking erroneous thoughts, which have caused my distress.
Thank you and I love you offers love and gratitude to my Inner Presence. This always makes me feel better and helps me to let go of judgment. It reminds me that I’m responsible for any feelings I have about the particular circumstances. It also allows me to substitute a positive mantra for a negative complaint.
The energy I radiate out into the world is a result of the thoughts I cultivate. Whether I am judging myself, a friend, or a world situation, my judgmental thoughts create an energetic vibration, which radiates love and healing if my thoughts are loving. If they are negative, it aggravates the situation.
