Ho’oponopono – what’s that you say?…

Put simply Ho’oponopono is the power of forgiveness.

Dr Hew Len is a famous Hawaiian therapist who cured a ward of criminally insane prisoners without ever meeting one of them!

How did he do it you ask?

He used the Hawaiian practice of of Ho’oponopono.  He reviewed their files, and then healed them by healing himself!  

I am being deadly serious about this.  The cornerstone of Ho’oponopono is simple. It’s believed that if something (in this case Dr Hew Len’s prisoners) comes into your consciousness then you must take responsibilty for it.  What is key is that you don’t take the BLAME for it; just responsibility for it because you are aware of it.  Blame and responsibility are two different things and should never be confused.

In the case of the prisoners, Dr Len was made aware of them through the review of their files and healed his awareness of their crimes and other related issues.

How does Ho’oponopono work?

The modern or updated version of Ho’oponopono that Dr Len lectures about is a four step process in which you repent, ask for forgiveness, express gratitude and offer love.    

  1. I’m sorry

  2. Please forgive me

  3. Thank you

  4. I love you

You do it by yourself.  No one needs to hear you. You don’t have to say the words out loud, you can say them in your head. The power comes in the intension and in the desire of the Universe to make whatever situation you are using Ho’oponopono for.

I have used Ho’oponopono for all sorts of things with a really good success rate.  It’s a similar principle to Ask Believe Receive from the Secret/ Law of Attraction.  However, the difference, for me, is that it’s a much more spiritual and not that I am trying to manipulate the Universe as I feel with the Secret/ Law of Attraction.

It’s great to do this before you go to bed as closure for the day and set the intention for this new day coming. Give it a go and see what you think.

Until next time lovelies,
