Day 26: Presence

Presence is being with (giving undivided attention, availing oneself) to all that is. Since starting this practice of Ho’oponopono, I’ve experienced a carousel of emotions – some connected to vivid, evocative daydreams, others simply washing through with disarming visceral effects.  Sadness…angst…curiosity…pensiveness…anger…hope…fatigue… They’ve come and gone, often melting into one another becoming an indescribable iridescent cocktail of emotions…Read more »
