Radical Self Forgiveness- Guided Healing Practice (Ho’oponopono)
#hooponopono #healing #guidedmeditation #forgiveness #selfcare #selflove
Welcome to my channel, my name is Dan Ballard.
I am a 33 year old Australian man, with a visionary heart.
My life’s work spans over a decade in self-leadership.
I am a mentor, international teacher, educator and facilitator.
I have worked with 10’s of thousands around the world, to help people feel and perform at their best.
I teach you how to upgrade your mind, energy and skills for happiness and prosperity.
In this practice: I prepare you intentionally for accessing the healing power of the ancient Hawaiian Prayer Ho’oponopono.
I encourage you to find a quiet and safe place for your mind, body and energy in this practice.
The 4 phrases I repeat are:
Please forgive me
I love you
It is important to do the best that you can, to open yourself somatically for the power of this guided practice to work through the deeper layers of your being and free you, and anyone else that may have been involved in hurts, stress or conflicts of the past.
The Hawaiian word ho'oponopono comes from ho'o ("to make") and pono ("right"). The repetition of the word pono means "doubly right" or being right with both self and others. In a nutshell, ho'oponopono is a process by which we can forgive others to whom we are connected.
Deeper Understandings of the 4 Phrases:
Step 1: Repentance – I’M SORRY This tradition holds that you are responsible for everything in your mind, even if it seems to be “out there.” Once you realise that, it’s very natural to feel sorry. …This realisation can be painful, and you will 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.
Step 2: Ask Forgiveness – PLEASE FORGIVE ME Don’t worry about who you’re asking. Just ask! PLEASE FORGIVE ME. Say it over and over. Mean it. Remember your remorse from step 1 as you ask to be forgiven.
Step 3: Gratitude – THANK YOU Say “THANK YOU” – again it doesn’t really matter who or what you’re 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.
Step 4: Love – I LOVE YOU This can also be step 1. Say I LOVE YOU. Say it to your body, say it to God. 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.
Clean up the leaks in this episode...
Resolve split energy, and get right on track to leverage your greatest currency.
Energy; like knowledge is great to have, but it isn't worth much until it becomes coupled with clear + right action,
It must be focussed through the lens of output, to create action, that produce outcomes.
All the leaks of energy being disbursed and wasted- is costing you, and it's draining time, energy and money...
It must be cleaned up practically, and I'm going to bring you briefly into a the first module of The Prosperity Mastermind.
We will generate get the means, with wisdom, to take a deep dive with this nuance and overlooked piece of who and what we are.
For people, organisations this is hack you want to get active on.
It will create a rapid shakeshift as it has done within The Sold Out Prosperity Mastermind.
Let's get into it!
ENERGY MANAGEMENT 1 awaits....
Get On With It (Momentum)
Welcome to Season 2!
How many books must I read, before I get on with it?
I titled this podcast “Get on with it”.
What am I suggesting here?
Well we do an outstanding job of consuming.
And an even better job of procrastination and avoidance.
By now we probably have gathered enough information that we can use.
How much more do we actually need?
At some level do a terrible job of taking the action we know we need to take.
And we are stressed out, overwhelmed and overcommitted.
Do you think more information is the answer?
Because of this we are under delivering.
You will only get as far, as you are clear.
Clarity is first point of call, we generate the means and energy to get clear.
Then we ask ourselves how many books must I read before I get on with it?
How many people must I collect validation from.
How many courses do I need to do, to start making impact and deliver my message.
The truth is, no one cares. They really don’t unless you have something they want. When people get what they want, you see who they are. When they don’t get what they want you will see who they are faster.
This tells us something,
It tells us that despite our fears of what people think, what they may say or do, we must move on with it.
Because nothing anyone says or does has anything to do with us, its a projection, and they are flying in the wind around this period of chaos in time.
So most of this now is just yourself and your own inner critic trying to keep you low.
You were not born this way, you were born worthy and knowing.
But now, you are in the practice.
Self care and self reliance is a practice to get there.
Do we really care how many books you read these days?
I think it’s more like this- show me what you have done with it.
Show me who you are, and that is what is required.
Consistency said, I knew what outcomes I wanted, so I built the steps into my plan.
I focussed on the stepping stones and where they lead to.
Consistency said, I figured out my highest priorities and had the courage, pleasantly and unapologetically to say “no” to other things.
Consistency said, the way it is possible is by having a bigger “yes” burning inside.
It said, even when I wasn’t motivated, something else drove me.
And consistency knows, it is the key to success, no matter what you are doing.
Without consistency, mastery in the important or specific areas of your life becomes fleeting, vague or even unachievable.
Mastery in how it applies to you is an embodiment that says I value and care more about knowing myself than the judgement of others.
It says I enjoy my existence, and I want to learn about it deeply to harness my potential.
And mastery was possible because I didn't deny consistency, the right of being the primary focus in all areas of my life, because it’s said how you do 1 thing is how you’ll do them all.
I waited for the right time to release these words, and this podcast...
In this practical episode I assign meaning to consistency, for the word to be embodied- where it really counts.
Adversity to Alchemy
We are always students first, and when the ego starts to think otherwise we are reminded in a not so gentle way.
The teacher and the taught create the teaching.
In this episode I let you in on what it was like processing a compromising ordeal where I was robbed of $50,000 from my own home.
I take you through the process and what it has been able to teach me.
This episode is raw + reflective.
I thought that would be the best way to bring things back.
Bridge The Gap (Special)
Dan is a mentor of both mine & Jarreds, so to sit down with him to dive deep into his story was incredibly fascinating. Welcome to episode 25 of the Bridge The Gap Podcast with Dan Ballard.
Dan is a mentor & a re educator, who has filled the last 3 decades with a massive amount of questions, suffering, growth and intelligence, which is what makes this one of our longest, but deepest podcasts we’ve had so far.
Dan dives into his experiences growing up, finding an outlet in the gym and moving into the world of performance enhancing drugs. The insight into this world is something I’ve never heard before, and Dan doesn’t hold back. He takes us through his pain and suffering, and how it lead him into the man he is today.We talk on key relationships and transitions, the introduction of Yoga and how that impacted his reputation in the fitness industry.
There are so many times where Dan has gone against the grain, and with his heart which showed true challenges, but immense growth. I strongly believe there is an opportunity in this episode for you. It’s an opportunity to challenge yourself by really listening to what’s being said, because there’s a huge part of our conversation that may trigger you, or may seem like too much.
I want you to know that if you feel this way, I was exactly like you. I wasn’t interested in deep thinking and understanding myself, but as Dan explains so well throughout this episode, for us to really take control and understand ourselves, we must start on the inside, and there are so many incredible tools in this episode to begin to learn and develop that deeper.
Dan is so full of wisdom in an honest, genuine and humble manner. These podcasts are short and sweet with practical advice. I’ve listened to each episode more than once and there’s so much to gain when you’re ready to hear what he’s sharing!
Such a genuine pod cast. Really relatable and practical.
What a guy! Dan Ballard! Be listening, learning and adapting to Dan’s wisdom for years and now it’s great that there is a podcast for everyone to gain from.
