What is in me is seen in the world.  What brings suffering in me is mirrored in the world.  My world is like a thousand refracted rainbows all based on a bending of the light.  Sometimes the light gets bent too far…..but I see this bending in the world around me…this light that is bent in me. The path to healing becomes a path of self honesty that there is nothing before me that does not first originate within.  As much as I try to make deals with it, the truth of it faces me each moment.  There is a way to heal it.  It takes honesty.  Humility.  I am not the most humble person, so there is often struggle.

Ho’oponopono recognizes this reality, that what we see before us in our day-to-day is a reflection that is within us.  Each moment is colored by it.  We attract perfectly what we are.  If you do not like something “out there” look within for the answer.  It sounds magical, but it is the way.

Ho’oponopono is a healing modality or Hawaiian origin that recognizes that the way to healing is by healing first what is within us.  When we do this, it provides a path for healing what we ourselves have attracted. Shift yourself, you shift the world.  It has a powerful leveraging effect.  It is also the essence of a compassionate path whereby what you heal in yourself will be healed in others.

The practice is simple.  You pray to the universe.  You think of the problem before you in your awareness and you hold it there while you pray to the universe saying

I am sorry

Please forgive me

I love you

Thank you

Ho’oponopono is a method for atonement, for helping to heal and erase the error and cause of hurt in our lives.  By being able to touch upon the grace available to us, that can be in us, we can begin to free ourselves and others from the things that have troubled us and that cause trouble for us.

To understand the power that this simple method has for you, I  direct you to a video that I think you will find very interesting.  After that, perhaps you will find a way to include this in your tool-box of tools for healing.  It is an interesting video of a practitioner of Ho’oponopono who has a great story to help illustrate how this can work in your life.

One very effective way of learning to deal with what is out in the world is first becoming aware that what you are being attracted to is something unresolved in you at some level.  People who have awakenings speak of how they can feel what others feel.  True, but look deeper though at what it is that you are picking up on.  In every instance, you will find that you are making a choice in what you are picking up on. If you are like me, you might come to the realization that you aren’t picking up on EVERYONE’s energy, just certain people.  Why some and not others?  There is a reason for this, and it is rooted in where you are and what you are feeling, even when you are not entirely aware of what these things are.  They are still inside of you and they help to paint a portrait of your life in a way that might be difficult to face sometimes, but is perfect for how accurate it can be.  It is in learning what the point is of connect within you that can lead you to resolving the issue that is at hand.  And maybe you find that you, say, keep running into people who have trouble with anger and this is very troubling to you because you find it so unsettling.  You aren’t an angry person, no, but there is an issue that is not completely resolved and the universe is serving as a perfect mirror for you.  Time to dig deep on this one!   For example, I had someone not long ago who was having trouble being in public because he was feeling everyone’s energy. In truth, he was sensing certain kinds of energy, and this was all itself a mirror of where he was.   I explained to him how an experience I had helped me break the cycle of feeling as though I was wide open to others thoughts and feelings.

Up to that point I would walk down the street and be overcome with incredible pain coming from people I would pass in public.  At first I thought this was because I was more sensitive, that I was picking up on everything.  true, yes, but there was something more that bears pointing out, since it is a finer point in all of this and can help a good deal when dealing with these things at least initially, which is that I was not picking up on everyone’s thoughts.  I was in truth picking up on those thoughts that held a vibration that had something in common with me.  A specific example and break-through for me was when I was attending a party with family where there were at least a dozen people in attendance.  I began to feel very anxious during a certain part of the party and as I felt this wave of anxiety wash over me, I found myself stopping for a moment and questioning why it was I was feeling this all of a sudden.  There was no good reason why I should be feeling this sudden wave of anxiety.  So I asked myself was this mine?  The answer was a quick “no.”  So I then asked myself “where is this coming from?”  The energy pointed me immediately in the direction of a man sitting quietly talking to my Mother who was over to the side, kind of out-of-the-way of things.  I looked at him and asked him point-blank, “Do you have problems with anxiety?”  He kind of sunk into his chair for a moment.  the look on his face was the same look that a kid gets when they realize they have been caught with their hand in the cookie jar.  But looking at me for a moment, he seemed to realize I was not asking this in a mean way, and that I did not mean anything by it.  I was just being direct.  He then softened, and explained that he had actually had a lifelong problem with anxiety and had gone to numerous therapists for it and took medications over the years because of it.  I listened as he spoke and as he did, I felt the feeling of anxiety melt away.

After that experience, I no longer felt others’ energy like I had before in that same sort of way.  I was not seized with a pain in my heart chakra after passing some man on the street, or feel a sense of tightness in the shoulders when I was talking to the receptionist over the phone.  I suspect, or feel, that the very act of identifying these things in the way that I did had the effect of helping me to identify between my own feelings and those of others in a more clarified way so that I was no longer processing things that were not entirely mine.  What it did do also was to point out why I would feel something from another person, which was that there was some aspect of it that was also in me.  I also think, though, that this mirroring still continues in our lives, just in a different way. Maybe you see them in the customers you deal with, or the clients that come through to your workplace, or the kind of people you work with.  The interesting thing is that often, when I do this work, I see a change in the other person.  I have seen some big changes taking place in my family, for example, that has led to some very healing results and some marvelous results for these people in my life.

I have seen that as I clear things up in me the type of people I encounter on a day-to-day basis has also changed.  The power of the Law of Attraction, which is that like energy attracts like energy, is at play.  It is just how the universe is.  this is not some kind of game, it is just how things work.  By being aware of this I can look at the world and the people around me to get a good view of what I might want to heal in the next go-round of work on my roster. Layer by layer, new material is revealed, I become more aware or sensitive to layers I had not felt before, and the work continues.  It is what I call spiritual archeology.  This is a digging down, revealing and healing old baggage that has been buried down there for ages.  The force of kundalini, which is itself a creative force, has a magnificent ability to heal these knots of cords that we have built up within us.

So try it on for a bit and see how it works for you if you are so bold.  And also try Ho’oponopono.

Today while clearing a workspace I thought about how ritual is used in the world to help us to anchor certain feelings and states of being. If you know me, I am not big on ritual. The reason for this is the result of years of seeking and pondering what it is that is behind the things we do. Part of it, too, is this aspect that is part of who I am that seeks the essence of things, the root cause. But for as much as I live life without ritual, I also know that when used in the right way, it can yield effective results.

So I cleared this work space after finishing some jobs for clients recently and as I did so I noticed how much clearer I felt inside. As I did this I found myself going into that familiar meditative state where I am ever present, yet also in the flow. I stepped outside and found myself pulled to a spot where I felt this wonderful whoosh of energy from the earth flow up into me. It then began a one-two rhythm of moving through my energy body, healing and clearing. I felt the presence of this conscious energy and felt the flow of information as it began answering the questions floating in my mind.  Less a hive of busy thoughts and more like, “And the answer to that question you have had in you mind, well….”  I was surprised to find myself feeling this energy flowing up through me like this…after all, I have spent years feeling the energy of the earth.  It goes to show that we all have so much to learn.

I have always felt how different the earth felt to me in different places.  For years I have noted the character of the energy was just so different….the result of the local geology, it’s position on the globe, lines of force near that spot as well as the life upon it, all contributing to an overall feel.  When I lived in Kentucky, I could feel the presence of a long standing strife from battles or struggles on the land…..more so than most anywhere else.  It felt OLD….only to learn that Kentucky had been fought over….over and over….by rival native groups for generations.  It all made sense.  Visiting the deserts of New Mexico and Arizona was an epiphany of sorts after living in the lush green rolling hills of the Blue Ridge Mountains of western Virginia.  I found Sedona not the be the incredible thing people made it out to be…..a place that actually had some geographical karma of sorts that ATTRACTED a lot of people who were intrigued by its “vortices” never noticing what lay deeper.  I suppose we all get there in time, and really, maybe I am a geek where this stuff is concerned.

This, though was different.  I felt a series of thoughts move very quickly through me.  By clearing myself, I made it possible to pick up on this energy.  I felt it come through my feet.  Did you know you have chakras in your feet and legs?  I was just reading last week while doing some final work on the book that there are seven of them.  Hips are tied to lust, knees to retaliatory jealousy.  All of these are all tied to very negative traits.  While the observations may be correct, not sure I buy that there is only a negative side to all of this.  But be that as it may, I felt this tingling surge that felt wonderful as it moved up through my body.  It was actually a lot like what kundalini felt like before it fully rose in me.  A tingling.  It moved right up through my meridians and in the energy I could hear these wordless words…concepts or thoughts that were…..silent….yet also present.  As it moved upward it would pause and become focused on parts of my energy body.  It explained that two channels in both the Ida and Pengali were long ago injured….all of this was explained in terms of how I have attracted certain things into my life, like people and events.  If I was to heal it, I had to hand over the investment in the old hurt in order to feel this force run fresh and clear in me.  For the second time in about a year I felt the presence of what I can only describe as the feminine side of all energy move all around me showing me that in letting go, this issue would essentially go into this gestalt energy for recycling……redemption.  Letting go of it was the first step, the very most important.

The energy was like clockwork.  It rose and fell in a perfectly timed one-two count.  So, up for two counts and then down for two.  Ebb for two, flow for two.  This went on with a regular beat.  I saw how the sacred drum of North American tribes was based not on heart scattering syncopation! but on the heartbeat of humans.  I remembered how I had sat in on a talk by a shaman who came to town when I was in college and how he explained that this one-two beat was the beat of the earth.  I wondered, was this the beat he was talking about?

As I felt all this, the energy in the earth said something like “I am the feminine (winks) because this is how you can best relate to me….but I think we both know I am both feminine and masculine in the same way that ALL energy has it’s positive and negative polarities….with no man or woman being present…..but if it makes it easier to relate, then I can be all of that, more, or different…..”

I continued to hear this flow of information about some incidental things I needed to do that would help me with my energy.  It felt like healing, a scan, and a reading all in one.  I realized all of this came about because I was clear enough to feel it.  I had never felt anything like this tied to Gaia quite this vividly, as though my body became part of an energetic presence all around me.  I was standing directly over a strong line of energy in my backyard.  When I oriented myself I saw that this line ran very close to north and south.  I didn’t have a compass, but with the afternoon sun showing its way to the west, I figured the line as I felt it moving under me was very close to N/S orientation.

This led to including a short two-page chapter in ritual in the book, which explained why ritual can be helpful in finding certain feeling states.  All method and technique in yoga and meditation is based in this.  Ritual itself exercises both sides of the brain and can help us to feel the right way since feeling is the actual circuitry switch of the universe.  When you can flip that switch, you can flow with the world.  Sound crazy?  To understand, maybe it’s best that you buy WTI when it comes out, because I explain about this circuitry of the universe and how it is native to all things and how you can use it as an effective guide in helping you to identify the challenging parts in your life very quickly I order to heal them.  Most often people look at effects and point to them as the culprits, but unless you go deeper to the origin, you will continue blaming the world for your ills and will be like an ox going round and round the same way ox are harnessed to grind grain.  They walk miles and never get anywhere.  Welcome to the merry-go-round of karma!  And it is all yours.  So knowing how to change how you see all of this is the sea-change necessary for most folks to begin knowing how to relate to their trials and inner challenges in a more effective way for the simple reason that its means resolves back into the root of what is true; no one forced you to feel how you feel.  You made more choices that you may have even realized.  You, at the end of the day can argue about how bad life has been, and yet, no one is making you feel this way.  The path to freedom from these feelings is simply granting yourself the freedom to be……free.   Free from it all!  Kind of exciting, isn’t it?

So if ritual does it for you, use it.  Use it to direct your imagination…..for imagination is what allows you to expand beyond your physical limits…..paradoxically we also treat it as an unreal thing when it is SO important!  Imagination is what frees you to smile, to be seduced, to let go and feel more deeply, to see things in ways your never knew could be.  Please doing discount what your imagination can do!

In the course of these happenings, I was describing this experience to a friend who said she had not ever felt earth energy in that way.  What she described sounded like an exact opposite to what I had felt.  Now wouldn’t it be interesting to find that sexual energetic polarity affected how we related to and felt energy?  Well, in fact, in Tibetan Tantra, that is what this is precisely about, which is all a dance of energy.  Having felt my polarity “flip” during a past life experience involving a life as a woman some four years ago during a stage of releasing some old stuff from a past life, I found, caught up in rapt attention that everything I was feeling was still bliss BUT just HOW the energy flowed was….different.  It was the opposite from how my energy moves in me as the masculine.

The reason why I am saying this is because your results may feel very different than mine.  My friend felt drawn INTO the earth while I felt it flowing up into me and through me like I had become a node within a living circuitry.  And who knows, it may also be that these energies are so large and complex that you can relate to them in a myriad of ways.  Perhaps at a certain level all energy is itself unlimited and relies on the focus of those around it in order to perceive the broader aspects of it’s being.  What?  Everything is multidimensional.  Every atom, every star.  When we begin perceiving like this, we do so in a potentially broader way, right?  And the enormity of the experience is our touching on this multiplicity of expression in all things.  Like a diamond with all these facets.  You are one such expression…..and your ego helps to hold back the holy torrent of being and energy from knocking you over…..and yet, when you open the door a crack a trickle comes through.

Trust your instincts…..walk through nature…..practice clearing….feeling your insides being cleared away.  And who knows, maybe washing the dishes might do it,or sweeping up leaves or…clear, walk and don’t over think it.  Let your intuition have room to work.  When it worked for me, It did so without my needing to think about it.  I just stopped.  Clear, I had nothing else left except to feel.

Spring is on its way!  Yes, a few more months of cold and February is for us the hardest, but there is a feeling in the air that tells me is time  to transplant the raspberries NOW if I want to triple my crop come spring and summer!  Curled, just waiting for the trigger of more sun, bud wait in dream for the moment they begin to break free.  Ah!  My favorite time of year!  Here it comes!
