Healing Mantra

29 Dec 2017   Shanti Gowans
Everything happens to you is your mind…everything you see and hear, every person you meet, you experience in your mind. There is no “out there”  Thinking it’s "out there" absolves us of responsibility. You are responsible for everything you think, and everything that comes to your attention. With compassion, accept it,  clear it, clean it, and with forgiveness change it.
 
Love, Gratitude, Remorse and Forgiveness are the forces that have amazing power that we need to engage. The power is in the feeling and the willingness to forgive and love.
 
By healing ourselves we heal others. 
 
Here are four steps to commit to:
I love you.
Thank you
I’m sorry
Please forgive me
 
Step 1: Love

Say "I love you". Say it to your body, say it to God, your child, your friend .. Say "I love you" to the air you breathe, to the house that shelters you. Say "I love you" to your challenges. Say it over and over. Mean it. Feel it. There is nothing as powerful as Love.
 
Step 2: Repentance: I am sorry

As I mentioned above, you are responsible for everything that appears to 'come into' your mind, even if it seems to be “out there.” Once you realise this, feeling sorry comes about very naturally. I know I sure do. If I hear of a hurricane, I am remorseful that something in my consciousness has created it. I’m so very sorry that someone I know has a broken bone that I realise I have caused.

This realisation can be painful, and you could, most likely resist accepting responsibility for the “out there” kind of problems until you start to practice this method on your more obvious “in here” problems and see results.

Stat by choosing something that you already know you’ve caused for yourself, such as over-weight, nicotine, alcohol or some other addiction, anger issues, health problems… start here and say you’re sorry. That’s the whole step "I’m sorry". Although I think it is more powerful if you say it more clearly: “I realise that I am responsible for the (issue) in my life and I feel terrible remorse that something in my consciousness has caused this.”
 
Step 3: Ask Forgiveness: Please forgive me. 

Don’t worry about who you are asking. Just ask, "Please forgive me". Say it over and over. Mean it. Remember your remorse from step 2 as you ask to be forgiven.
 
Step 4: Gratitude: Thank you

Say “Thank you” … and again, it does not really matter who or what you are thanking. Thank your body for all it does for you. Thank yourself for being the best you can be. Thank God. Thank the Universe. Thank whatever it was that just forgave you. Just keep saying "Thank you"
 
This is it, the whole practice in a nutshell. Simple and amasingly effective.
 
Just keep repeating the mantra every available moment.
