How to Heal Self-Blame with Self-Forgiveness using Ho’oponopono Meditation

If you are anything like me, you are quick to blame yourself for any of the below reasons:

  • You have not achieved some level or expectation.
  • You tried to better yourself and you “failed.”
  • You made a mistake (unintentional) or had an accident (I call this, “You Did a human” AKA Making a human mistake)
  • Especially for you, if you have OCD; You have “bad” thoughts, intrusive thoughts, thoughts you deem “unacceptable.”
  • You feel like you are a BAD person who doesn’t EVER deserve to be forgiven.
  • You are attempting to work through your mental health issues.
  • You struggle to do exposures or follow some treatment goal.
  • You experience self-disgust (for having pimples, cellulite, intrusive thoughts etc.

My main message in this podcast is this:

HUMANS ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE PERFECT!

HUMANS ARE ALWAYS AND FOREVER GOING TO MAKE MISTAKES!

This podcast details a practice called Ho’oponopono.  Ho-oponopon is a spiritual practice of harmony between people, nature and spirit that has been used in Hawaiian and other Polynesian cultures for centuries.

Ho’oponopono Key Concept: We can heal our own wounds and then we can then go out and heal our world.

Ho’oponopono Meditation Foundation:

I’m sorry.

Please forgive me.

I love you.

Thank you.

 

Here are some ridiculous reason to not practice Self-Forgiveness:

  1. You only deserve Self-Forgiveness after you make the world better (giving service to others).
  2. If you forgive myself, you will stop caring and let yourself go and become and even worse person.
  3. Once you are perfect, then you can forgive yourself.
  4. If you blame myself first, it will hurt less if someone else blames you or notices your imperfections.

Please do not let these reason stop you from freeing yourself from Self-Blame.

Give it a try and see if it works for you! I found it to be a very powerful practice.

Have a great week!
