Its called Ho'oponopono. Google it. Youtube it. Was recommeded to me by another forum member and so far I'm finding it invaluable. Theres a good book on it called Cosmic Ordering 2: The Next Step. 

Basically its a way of healing negative emotions. Its part of the ancient Hawaiian culture and its based on forgiveness. 

Here's what you do:

You think of the person, event, situation or whatever negative thought or emotion is currently effecting you. State the inent that you wish to 'clean and clear' or heal this. And then you repeat these sentences to YOURSELF, over and over for as long as you want. 

I'm sorry
I feel for you (said to yourself aka I empathize with you)
I forgive myself
I love myself
I accept myself
I thank myself
You are loved by me (said to yourself) 

Really feel it as you say it. You can say it in any order you want. The most common is "I'm sorry, I forgive you, I love you" or "I'm sorry, please forgive me, thank you, I love you". You can change between myself/you for whatever phrase. 

People do this in the club whenever negative emotion rises up, their state gets fucked with, people annoy them, they get self-conscious and so on. If you keep doing it for a while you get to a point where certain issues actually get fully cleaned from your subconscious. Its pretty crazy to experience it because you come back to that 'child-like' state of awareness. Some people just repeat it as much as they can, others do it frequently throughout the day and I myself just do it whenever something annoys me or gets to me. 

Its been a real help for me so far. Just wish I stay with it and dont fall of it. Has even helped with procrastination! But really do feel it as you say it. 

Hope it helps someone!

How about listening to Hatebreed instead? Quite a bit more motivational if you ask me. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DBwgX8yBqsw

Sounds like a good technique along the line of being compassionate with yourself. A lot of times we're our harshest critic so this would definitely help if you're constantly criticizing yourself.

I remember reading a book by Dr. Hew Len and Dr. Joe Vitale a few years ago. I think the book was name Zero Limits. It gave some great insights in how to let go of blocks that stopped you from moving forward in life. There was a lot of focus on "I love you" in their works, too.

One of the most powerful parts of the book was reading about Dr. Hew Len's work in Hawaii where he helped numerous psychiatric patients that were committed due to crimes overcome their issues by focusing more on himself than on them. 

I loaned the book to a friend and it never came back, so I am glad you made this post. It reminded me that I wanted to buy a new copy to add back to my collection of books. Ho'oponopono provides some powerful tools to help.

Yeah thats the main story that goes around when people hear about it. Ho'oponopono is the shit though, surprised its not more famous. 

Wasnt gonna put this in the main post cus it is a bit weird but I actually do find that stating "Divine Consciousness please help me clean and clear this [or whatever issue] from my subconcsious mind so that I can have a better reality for myself and for others" actually helps the process A LOT more. Like a lot more than just repeating the words. 

Yeah the biggest focus is on 'I love you' or 'I'm sorry, I love you'. Dr. Hen Lew when doing that experiment just did three phrases 'I'm sorry, I forgive myself, I love myself.' 

Cosmic Ordering 2 is a good book.

Interesting. 

The best approach for handling negative emotions for me was FEELING them to their GREATEST INTENSITY.

Negative emotions are a part of our biology.  Stress, and anxiety KEPT US ALIVE back in the day. 

It's when you try to hide, or resist fear that it actually brings pain to your life.

Man up, bite down, and FEEL THOSE NEGATIVE EMOTIONS.  EMBRACE THEM TO THEIR FULLEST INTENSITY

Yeah man. Literally 'feel' your feelings to the fullest. If you dont, they'll just linger there waiting to be felt. I've actually seen this taught to children in spiritual circles. The little kid will go somewher quiet and sit there just feeling everything thats there/coming up until its been felt and gone! Another thing that helped me release resistance is knowing that its okay to feel whatever I'm feeling. Like I'd have resistance before to feeling anxiety or being nervous. Ho'oponopono helps in situations where I cant go of somewhere quite to concentrate and I can just keep repeating it over and over in my mind.

Taking deep diaphragmatic breaths is key as well. 

It's shocking how they don't teach this shit in school.
