Blessings by John O’Donohue

wishes for you, irish blessings, irish wishes,

On Summer Solstice 2017 I would like to share with you Selections from Eternal Echoes by John O’Donohue. A Celtic Shaman, O’Donohue writes on the longing of the soul, our spiritual relationship with ourselves and others, and belonging. Blessings are selfless wishes and these are my wishes for you, that you may find self-love, that you may see the light in yourself and others, that you will open yourself to the shadows too, and embrace the danger of freedom, love, and renewal.

More Chronicles of Us —

Read the first part here: The Chronicles of Us FOUR.

Ho’oponopono and Meditation for Reconciliation

Meditation I find self-induced meditation difficult; my mind does not quiet easily and the experience can be very discouraging and frustrating. Because of this, I have used many of the guided meditation videos on YouTube to help me get into a receptive state. The meditative state is receptive to affirmations, unintelligible wisdom, and altering perceptions I find it is the best place to

I Once Forgave Someone Because of Stars

My Forgiveness Story He was my high school bully, he was one of many. He stood out because he could reach the most vulnerable parts of me, the places where I still expressed hope and confidence, and make them seem ugly. I transferred schools because of him, and the next year he was there, the

Suicidal Teen Grows Up and Watches TV

I didn’t kill myself, but I wanted to, and I tried to, many times. Maybe I didn’t research suicide enough to make it work, but maybe I didn’t want to make it work because somewhere in my suffering there was a tiny spark, a hidden feeling of hope. I can only recall the hopelessness, but
