All through April I will have my books available for free on Amazon. It’s been a while since I ran any promotion, and April felt like a good month for it.

Spring is here and many of us will be doing some sort of Spring cleaning or other, and since we are already getting rid of clutter and items that have piled up and we no longer need, our mind will be on the right place already, to maybe try and go a bit deeper, and work on getting rid of some of the emotional clutter we all carry around.

The weather will be on our favour too: longer days mean more hours of sunlight, bluer skies, more flowers, all things that will help us feel better and stronger, without even having to work at it. It is normal to think of the New Year as the time to start a healing process, but actually, (at least in the Northern Hemisphere) that is the hardest time to try and dig deep into our fears, worries and stress. Think about it: the days are short, cold, wet and (if you leave somewhere in the British Islands) constantly grey; and because of the weather conditions we are also more likely to be feeding our body all the things which contribute to mood swings and low moods: cake, chocolate, coffee, hot chocolate, fried foods etc. On the other hand, Spring is warmer, sunnier and (hopefully) drier. It encourages us to be outside, to spend time in nature, the Sun boost the production of serotonin which in turn makes us happier. And if this is not enough to convince you, think about it in the context of Nature: Spring is when things begin, Winter is when things rest, and wait for the nice weather to come back to life.

If you’d like to do some Spring Cleaning of your soul, as well as your home, you can get my book “Holistic Decluttering” for free on Amazon until Friday 12th of April.

If you are more interested in letting go of the past, healing old wounds and working with the power of Gratitude you may want to check my book, “3 Great Practises that will change your life“. This is a small book with exercises, Ho’oponopono and meditations to help you feel lighter and sunnier. It will be available for free on Amazon from April 23 to April 27.

 

This book wasn’t meant to be a book at all. At the time, when talking to people that had never heard of anything holistic, I found that I struggled explaining why I acted or believed certain things. It was especially hard because I had read so many books, gone to so many workshops and developed so many intuitions about things that I had sort of forgotten how I had arrived to any of the things I knew. A bit like when someone asks you a Grammar question about your own language. Do you even remember why something is said in a certain way and not another? Probably not. You just know.

I thought I could write a short document (short being the keyword) to organise my own thoughts, make it easier for me to explain things when someone asked me, and to remind myself of why I believed in the things I did, (and maybe, only maybe, so I could give it to my boyfriend at the time, so he could also understand how I saw the world).

I was trying to write a short piece and I ended with a book. I struggle to be concise, as you can see by the size of this post alone. In any case, I named it “What is the Law of Attraction?” because that seemed to be one of the questions that kept popping up and also because most things could be boiled down, one way or the other, to the Law. Also, because it was the first book I ever wrote and had therefore no experience about naming books. Hopefully, I will keep on writing for a very, very long time, and naming books will become second nature 🙂

This is a great book to get the basics about how our thoughts impact our reality. How our subconscious mind stores information and uses it to direct our lives without our knowledge (which explains why sometimes we keep repeating the same mistakes or encountering the same type of person over and over again). Unlike the other two books I wrote, there are less exercises and practical things to do, this book is more about getting an idea about how thoughts and actions manifest things and experiences.

I have now finally run out of things to say 🙂 Have a wonderful day, wherever you are, may Spring fall upon you like a small miracle.

Ho’oponopono Tools

In the practise of Ho’oponopono we are 100% responsible for everything that manifests into our world; everything around us, be it people or experiences is a creation of our mind.

Our reality was created by our mind based on memories we have been storing in it since childhood, sometimes, those memories are not even ours: we  have inherited them from previous generations.

These memories, trapped within the subconscious mind, have shaped the way we behave and think about ourselves and the world around us and thus have created behaviours and habits that have been guiding our life till today.

Instead of changing the patterns or fighting the habits, Ho’oponopono suggests we “erase” the originating memories so that those toxic behaviours and habits will disappear too. Once the memories disappear, the behaviour goes away and the reality we manifest changes too.

“We must erase the memories that gave life to the thoughts that created our world.”

How do we do this? How do we erase memories we can’t touch or see? Memories we might have blocked or tried hard to forget? There are different ways… they are all super simple, and cost absolutely nothing. Also, you don’t need to know or even think about memories that might be traumatic or sad, just repeat a simple phrase and let the Universe delete what’s no longer of use to you.  It is as simple as meditating a couple of minutes a day, so why not give it a try?

 The 4 “erasing” phrases of Ho’oponopono are: I’m Sorry, Please forgive me, Thank you, I love you. These 4 phrases will help you erase memories related to any area that is causing you pain or trouble at this point in time.

Sit comfortably somewhere where you won’t be interrupted, close your eyes and repeat them over and over for whichever length of time you feel comfortable. In a way it’s like meditating. Once you are used to the phrases, you can do this anywhere: sitting in the bus on your way to work or school, it is a great way to relax and reconnect with your Higher-Self and inner peace.

The following phrases help erase memories related to a specific topic or area. So they are great to use  when you know what area of our life needs “cleaning”:

Ice blue – Is a cleaning tool that helps clear memories related to physical pain. So if you are in physical pain you can repeat this words over and over, while you try and picture the beautiful and cooling colour blue. As you delete the memories that generated the physical pain, the pain itself will also disappear.

Dew drops – Repeating this phrase you remove memories that are causing you emotional pain, or manifesting in your life experiences or people that are causing you emotional pain. No need to think about the events that are causing you the pain, those are not the real cause, you need to delete the memories that created this reality of pain for you. As I said before, you don’t need to know which memories are to be deleted, you just need to delete by repeating the phrase, the Universe knows which memories need to leave your mind, the Universe, the Divinity or Life Force, whichever name you want to give it, knows far more than we do, and will know what to erase.

Light Switch – By repeating this phrase you (metaphorically) switch off your negative thoughts. Repeating Light Switch, also “sheds light” over why you are acting a certain way. If you find yourself acting in a way that is not your usual way or you want to stop acting a certain way but can’t stop and don’t know why. Light Switch will bring light to your inner space and help you see clearly what’s going on.

Drizzle – Repeating this phrase and even closing your eyes and visualising drizzle is great to delete negative programming associated with money. It deletes memories related to scarcity (real or fabricated) and reconnects with the flow of Abundance.

Green maple leaf – This is a cleaning tool that works on deep depression, feelings of being unloved, unappreciated, uncared for, and feelings of wanting to give up on life. Repeat this phrase as often as you can and feel this toxic feelings shift and disappear.

And finally, another erasing tool:

Blue Solar Water: Making it is very easy: place tap water into a blue glass bottle and set it in sunlight, or under an incandescent light bulb, (not fluorescent) for a period of at least an hour. you can drink it, use it for cooking, watering your plants and even cleaning. Click on Blue Solar Water for a more detailed post on how to make it and the many ways in which it is great.

Additional information on Ho’oponopono can be found in the book “Zero Limits” written by Joe Vitale and Dr. Hew Len or in “The Easiest way” written by Mabel Kats, who studied Ho’oponopono under Dr. Len for many years.

I am a big fan of Blue Solar Water, though I’m waiting for Spring and Summer to start making it again. London has been particularly grey this Winter 😦 I find Ho’oponopono phrases are a great tool to calm down, for example, if you are sitting in the dentist waiting room, waiting to be called and you are feeling all stressed and can’t stop thinking about the drill for two seconds, repeating the 4 phrases of Ho’oponopono is very soothing. It also makes your mind concentrate in something that is not the stressful situation. Not everything about these holistic practises need to be done in a dark room, amongst incense sticks, whale songs and yoga mats, you can do them when you are getting annoyed because you chose the wrong till and the queue doesn’t move, and those are the best moments to do them, because they will distract your brain and save you from getting mad at the unfairness of the world (which is BAD, very bad, for anger triggers all the worst chemicals in the body). So… let’s ho’opopnopono away today!

Have a wonderful day!!

Namaste,
