Project Athena - Day 278 (Fences)

Mending Fences

Spring is a good time for mending fences, literally and metaphorically. As we move out of the direction of the North and into the direction of the East, it's a time for new beginnings. With the light returning, we begin to have more clarity about life circumstances and can consciously welcome the dawn of a new day. Our Chi is naturally awakening and energy returning. Now is the time to heal broken relationships by viewing them from a different perspective.

One of my favorite practices of reconciliation and forgiveness is Hoʻoponopono (ho-o-pono-pono). If you are not familiar with this ancient practice, it's worth exploring, but the basic form is very simply saying the following words to yourself or another:

I’m sorry (for being asleep, unaware)
Please forgive me (because I have been unaware)
Thank you (to divinity for handling this issue for me)
I love you (I move in the direction of being one with the divine)
