“The simplicity of this prayer of peace and reconciliation gets right to the root of our innermost need for atonement: “I’m sorry, please forgive me, I love you, I thank you.” Listen to this prayer and direct it within yourself first, for outside is only a reflection of your inner world. It is possible to heal the world through the power of healing yourself. One can heal outer judgement and hatred, for example, by first healing one’s own ability to love and accept oneself. You can participate in this offering by feeling the resonance of these words within yourself, observing what comes up for you.”Abigail Elizabeth Fischer with Allison Danielle SemmesUnited StatesCornwall-on-Hudson, NYAbigail Elizabeth Fischer is a sound meditation practitioner, mindful artmaker, singer, and founder of ABigAUM, going deeper to heal through music, sound, and vibration.
