You may be familiar with Ho'oponopono. It's a process created by Dr. Len from Hawaii in the 1980's. As a therapist working in a state hospital, he used this process to help heal in him that which he saw in his outer world. Namely, the patients who were in the criminally insane ward.
As a therapist, he never saw the patients. In his office, he would take out their files and heal in him what he saw in the words printed on the paper. As he was with their files, he would say, "I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. I love you." Dr. Len kept in mind that everyone, including the patients in that ward, were all creations of the Divine. They were all perfect beings.
With this said, if he saw patients as anything but Divine, then he had the problem. And this is where Ho'oponopono comes in. It's cleaning and releasing that which is within us that sees the problem. By using the four statements, this natural cleaning process will get in touch with our memories that experience anything as a problem. It's like we're calling the Divine on the "bat phone," and asking for guidance to neutralize the problem memory :).
I've found this an incredible process because when I first started my business, I would label people as their problems....oh, she is "self-sabotage or depression." When I was introduced to Ho'oponopono, I then created the Roto-Rooter within me and only see my clients as Divine and have dropped the labels. This has really helped me be a different practitioner.
May you enjoy seeing only the essence in everyone, in everything. And be sure and use the bat phone to call the Divine...as He/She/All knows best :).
