10 Best Songs for Healing Broken Relationships
Before you enter into a situation involves interacting with people you find challenging, use this playlist as preparation to remind you that healing is possible.
The Hawaiian forgiveness practice of Hoʻoponopono is used for reconciliation and healing within families and communities, but can be used to successfully heal any relationships and create a stronger, healthier bond of authentic and meaningful interaction.
The steps involve forgiveness – both offering and asking for it, being grateful for the good and realizing that love both underlies the hurt and is the power that heals.
Whenever there are hurt feelings, saying “I’m sorry” is essentially taking responsibility. But forgiveness, at its most effective, is a two way exchange. While you may ask for forgiveness for the choices you have made, sometimes it is important to also offer your forgiveness to the other person. Sometimes it is not even rational, but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t deeply healing.
Follow this vulnerable exchange with gratitude for all the good in the situation and for the lessons learned, and love for all that makes the relationship important, and you harness the opportunity to move forward, unburdened by the past and with full appreciation for the powerful present.
