“True forgiveness is when you can say, “Thank you for that experience.”
Oprah Winfrey

Forgiveness is the focus of our designs, our intention, in May. Why focus on forgiveness?  To set yourself free!  Isn’t that what we all want, to feel true inner freedom and see that reflected in the world we live in?  How can we expect the world to forgive us, when we hold on to anger?  Anger not only toward others, but almost more so in berating ourselves over our past mistakes.  Ho’oponopono is a ancient Hawaiian practice of reciting the same four statements over and over with yourself in mind or picturing another:

“I Love You. Please Forgive Me. I Am Sorry. Thank You.”

This practice is said to produce miraculous results.  You will never know until you try!

Our gemstone malas in honor of Ho’oponopono this month are exquisite, and come in a men’s and women’s style.  Each are imbued with the intention of forgiveness, and being forgiven.  The women’s wrist mala includes Moonstone, Kyanite, Labradorite, and Agate, with a Rose Quartz accent.  The men’s wrist mala includes Lava, Dumoritite, Labradorite, and Sponge Coral.  Amazing and beautiful reminders to practice forgiveness, always.

The weak can never forgive.
Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.

Mahatma Gandhi
And a …LOL:
Most of us can forgive and forget;
we just don’t want the other person to forget that we forgave.

Through my years of teaching and speaking I have consistently run into the greatest amount of confusion, resistance, fear and anger around an 11-letter word that I consider to be one of the most misunderstood words in the English language … forgiveness.

They don’t understand what forgiveness is and what it isn’t. They don’t know their part in the forgiveness equation, which is a lot easier than they’re making it. They get stuck in resentment – they hold onto their grudges, build walls around their heart, and walk through the world carrying so much unhealed emotional & mental baggage. Full Article on Forgiveness
