Do you ever binge-listen podcasts or get really inspired by a book, just to forget most of the content a few weeks later? 
 
Well, you’re not alone. So many of us do this, and we forget many important lessons along the way. 
 
With this in mind, I’ve decided to Refocus on past episodes of ShamanTalk that I feel are REALLY important.  
 
I’ve added new insights to each ReFocus podcast and things I’ve learned along the way since recording
 
In this week’s ReFocus, we take another look at toxic self-blame.
 
Many of us tend to form harmful attachments to our emotions, and among the feelings we commonly become unhealthily attached to is self-blame. 
 
We unconsciously blame ourselves for things that aren’t our responsibility. 
 
We hold on so tightly to our mistakes and wrongdoings long after they’ve stopped hurting anyone else. We seem to be subconsciously determined to keep harming ourselves. 
 
This week we will hone in on Self-Blame. I talk about manifestations of self-blame so that we can start to pinpoint and categorise our issues. We can also know that we’re not alone and that we absolutely can overcome these issues we face

This week we will work with Self-Healing through the Ancient Art of Ho’ponopono. We are specifically going to concentrate on our Inner Child.

These are the steps:

Find some gentle music you can play. Here’s a link to one I use: 

https://open.spotify.com/track/6YtsJUCBB41QSllt3bNSn4?si=wcwPhU5aRY6a7wq697XiLQ

You can repeat this music for a more extended experience. I recommend at least 10 mins and as much as 30 minutes if that feels right for you. You can also build-up to this over time.

Set your Sacred Space. 

Start playing your music using the repeat function to ensure you can go as long as you wish without being disturbed.

Take some deep breaths and feel yourself landing in your Space. Connect with your Guides and commit to leaving your Daily Cares at the door. You don’t need those, and they’ll be there when you get back.

Ask your Guides to connect you with your Inner child. Where do you feel that in your body? How do you feel? Notice the feelings that arise – you may be uncomfortable, emotional or feel resistance to the work. That is all OK. Just observe, don’t worry about doing it ‘wrong’ and trust the divine holding of the Universe.

When you feel connected (or even if you don’t or are not sure)- then begin to repeat these words:

I’m Sorry

Please Forgive Me

Thank You

I Love You

Really feel the words resonate through your body as if you were talking to your Inner child. You don’t need to know the details; just allow the words’ magic to flow through you. Continue with this process until you feel a sense of completion. I recommend a minimum of 5 minutes but ideally 10 minutes or more.

Complete your Ceremony by closing your Space, giving Gratitude and go outside into Nature. Get your feet on the ground if you can (or open a window) and allow Nature to ground you and bring you back to centre.

You can repeat this Ceremony as many times as you feel drawn to it and apply it to many areas of your life.
