Depending on where you were born and what type of upbringing you had, you may or may not have a value system that emphasizes the love, honor and respect of parents (or grandparents). In some cultures, this is essentially "required" and sometimes, even symbolic of one's love of the Divine. And in some cultures, it is an implied value, as in honoring your elders. Our parents had authority over us and showed us how to live life. This is worth honoring.
No matter what the case may be, or whether the ones you call your parents actually are your biological mother and father, we wish to encourage you to go into your hearts and connect with your parents, send love to your parents, who have indeed contributed to your life in numerous ways. Send gratitude for the role they've played in your life, no matter what that is or was.
If it has been difficult, then honor that and notice any gifts it brings. Perhaps you can connect with the love your parents had for you even if you didn't feel it or see it. Perhaps you can appreciate their soul journey.
If there is sadness (i.e. maybe a parent or both are no longer here, or maybe you haven't healed from the past), then honor that and connect with their souls.
If there is happiness, then honor that and deepen your love.
In all cases, we are inviting you to generate, develop and deepen your gratitude and love for your parents today.
Let us connect and honor our parents and this special relationship now.
Body Power. Sit up straight, with your back away from the chair if that is comfortable and your feet flat on the ground. You may also sit in lotus or half lotus or cross legged with your back straight. Place one palm on your lower abdomen, below the navel, and one palm on your heart.
Soul Power - Say Hello.
Dear Divine and Divine Healing Hands,

I ask forgiveness for all I have done in any lifetime to hurt or harm you
And I unconditionally forgive you for any mistakes you have made that hurt or harmed me.
I wish to develop and deepen the love, peace and harmony, love, honor and respect between us.
