A week ago I set some wellness goals for myself. Eat cleaner, no sugar, meditate, exercise every day, drink more water, get more sleep. The first two days I did great. WooHoo 😉
Then life happened and my schedule and plan got bumped. I got tired and someone left cookies on my counter. I ate one and immediately there was disappointment along with the temptation to keep going and eat more. For a few minutes I was tempted to entirely abandon my wellness plan.
I got a hold of myself and walked out of the kitchen.
I kicked myself for slipping and entertained the thought that I was a failure.
Uggh. That’s so not true and I know it! So why did I let those thoughts in again?
Because I’m human and its ok.
It’s ok as long as I remember that beating myself up is hard on me and can be far more damaging than eating a cookie.
I KNOW THIS… and I know what to do. I breathed in Forgive essential oil and put some on my chest. I said empowering declarations to reinforce the fact that I’m in charge of my life and I’m choosing to claim my power.
I said the ho’oponopono prayer.
I love the ho’oponopono prayer because it’s simple yet POWERFUL.
After you’ve offended someone if you say to them in all sincerity “I’m sorry, I love you, Please forgive me, Thank you”, it clears the air and is healing.
When you offend, insult or betray yourself looking in the mirror and saying the ho’oponopono prayer is good medicine for you too.
So keep on setting goals to take better care of yourself and when you fall short, instead of berating yourself try looking in the mirror and saying the ho’oponopono prayer out loud!
Repeat it to yourself over and over again every day until it gets in your heart and soul and becomes your mantra.
Ia a good habit to get into and it will change you. And the results will be heartwarming and magical.
