The Power Of The Sacred Ho’oponopono: How To Use It To Shift Your World
Ho’oponopono is an ancient Hawaiian shamanic practice for healing. Ho’oponopono means to make (ho’o) right (pono) right (pono) to correct relationship problems. Most problems and negativity in our lives come from stuck energy either in this lifetime or past or even our ancestral lineage. Once honored and recognized many times situations can dissipate organically as love and forgiveness are high vibrational emotions.
Traditionally a kahuna or doctor would be called into a family to uncover the problems, practice forgiveness and release each other from the negative family dynamics including but not limited to guilt, shame, holding grudges etc.
Hawaiian doctors knew that conflicts and grudges, in essence, stored negative emotions eventually cause disease (dis-ease). This is very different from the western trained MDs. There was no pill for depression, or anxiety or grief. There was only love, forgiveness and connection. The family group would be called together in an intimate setting and the intention would be to make right the wrongs or bring into wholeness by the Ho’oponopono mantra or practice. There is a simple but most powerful mantra for cleansing, healing, forgiveness and karmic alignment.
“I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. I love you.”
With pure intention and an open heart deep forgiveness would occur and celebration would ensue. When practiced on others then on yourself, with reverence and consistency, Ho’oponopono could change your world in rapid and dramatic ways. And this can be done silently in quiet meditation and best of all – it’s absolutely free.
There is a deep history with this sacred practice but has been made more mainstream with Morrnah Nalamaku Simeona. Morrnah was a healer and went around the island teaching small groups, hospitals, even the UN this practice, and in 1983 she received a great honor by being designated as a living treasure of Hawaii.
Dr. Hew Len, a university-trained physician was a student of Simeona, albeit skeptical at first. Dr. Len decided to use this practice while he was the staff psychologist for Hawaii State Hospital overseeing high-security unit housing male criminally insane patients from 1984 till 1987. He used the Ho’oponopono mantra and devoted his time to this profound healing practice by using the files of each inmate.
Three years later the spirit and order in the psychiatric unit was greatly improved and eventually, the whole unit was closed because the need organically dissipated. People were healed and released or moved into other non-violent wards. Dr. Hew Len was healing deep aspects of himself or his subconscious made conscious with the words, “I’m Sorry, Please Forgive Me, Thank you, I Love you”.
Below are two simple ways to incorporate Ho’oponopono into your life: Use this mantra for the intimate relationships you have in your life. Find a quiet space and bring forth your partner, spouse, family members or friends and say the mantra in your head until you feel a subtle shift on your inner place. Continue to practice daily while you witness a change in your reality.
If you are a witness to a car accident, an argument or you are in a toxic environment, repeat this mantra and bring yourself to a neutral point.
Please note that while you may use this mantra for anything and everything staying in toxic and abusive situations are never wise. So be mindful and grounded and bring this sacred seed of love and forgiveness into your world. When we decide to turn on the light it can make it much easier to clean our inner house or subconscious mind in the light of love and forgiveness than the dark of ignorance.
