I’m Sorry, Please Forgive Me. Thank You. I Love You.
Ho’oponopono as a way of problem solving – is a very ancient Hawaiian art. In the original way when the problem came up, all the participants of the event should come together to do the Ho’oponopono process. It made the process difficult for resentment that flashed between people. The other difficulty was to invite those who passed away. The whole procedure was guided by principal kahuna. He was the only person who could read prayers and manage the process.
Morrnah Nalamaku Simeona did something unique. She removed steps from the process and updated Ho’oponopono for present day. Any person can do the prayer and appeal a petition to God without help of kahuna. God is the only one who knows what is right for you in your life.
Morrnah got her inheritance from her mother – Kahuna Lapa’au who used words to heal. Morrnah showed her ability of clairvoyancy at the age of 3. One day she passed the bridge and saw a Huge Hand from the Sky. The girl was scared and didn’t go over the bridge. Later she told that it was the Hand of God. From that time Morrnah’s mother began to teach her all the features of healing.
Morrnah had received the gift of updated Ho’oponopono. It took years of long meditations to develop this process the way it is taught present days by IZI LLC. She has received the process from God.
Ihaleakala Hew Len who is now more widely known for his curing a whole ward of patients who were labeled criminally insane by using the Ho’oponopono prayer. Ihaleakala, used to travel and teach with Morrnah worldwide says that Morrnah was very courageous. It is explained by her fully to trust to God. She listened only to God and always do what he said to do.
The other thing about Morrnah was her continuous work at herself. “Look to yourself” – kept saying Morrnah at any situation didn’t matter what was going on.
I recently read the book Zero Limits by Joe Vitale, which shares a secret Hawaiian system for wealth, health, peace, and more. The “secret system” is what is called the Ho’oponopono prayer for healing, which is taught in the book.
Since learning about this Ho’oponopono prayer, I’ve been using it consistently throughout my life as part of my life. It’s made a huge difference in creating more love, peace and prosperity. It heals your life.
There’s different Ho’oponopono prayers and mantras that you can repeat to yourself, but the one I’ve most frequently used has just been repeating “I’m sorry. Please Forgive me. Thank you. I love you”
When using this mantra, you’re speaking it to God or your Creator. You never aim to “fix” another person or situation, rather you focus on healing YOURSELF. When you heal yourself, everything else in your reality will change.
For example, there was something in you that manifested that into your reality and through reciting the prayer, that situation will be healed and won’t come up anymore and heal the other person in the process as well.
The Ho’oponopono prayer for healing mantra is something that is used to heal yourself, which will change others. You’re influencing and healing others through healing yourself, in an indirect way.
I personally use this mantra every day, all throughout the day and God will inspire me to change the order or use one part of the prayer to heal the issue (memory/data).
If I notice anything that I manifested or attracted into my life that is negative, then I just repeat the mantra:
“I’m sorry. Please Forgive me. Thank you. I love you.”
That’s it. I don’t complicate it. All of the power is in those words.
When we say I’m sorry, you are recognizing and accepting full responsibility for the actions, thoughts and emotions that have caused conflict to manifest into your reality.
Please forgive me is said as a request to make amends with your higher self, universe, God.
Thank you is the opportunity to show gratitude to God, your higher self for allowing your negative thoughts, actions and emotions to be cleared.
Finally, I love you, is emitted to God for allowing me this earth experience.
Why the Ho’oponopono Mantra is So Powerful
In Hawaiian tradition, the Ho’oponopono Mantra was not only used for gratitude and forgiveness. Even though it has a certain meaning to us when we say it, there is much more to the statement.
The basis of the mantra comes from the one principle that the Hawaiian’s teach: Hurt No One. Along with this one principle, the mantra was used as a form of resolving conflict instead of the arguments continuing to increase.
It is believed that the resonance of these four words created harmony and balance. It allows the conflict you are currently facing to be released and the energy to change when there are surrounding issues.
What would happen if someone approached you with conflict and instead of becoming angry, you responded with the Ho’oponopono mantra?
You might see a completely different outcome. What could have led to a bad outcome or difficulty begins to resolve. You take responsibility, and as a mirror, the other person is required to take the same type of responsibility.
The prayer demands that there is a state of peace and resolution, even if there is no ability to let go of the situation.
The words are able to develop a state of healing that takes place internally, allowing you to accept what is and to move into a more powerful state of mind. This way you can learn to let go and “let love back in.”
Not only are you resolving conflict with others. You are resolving the same conflict within yourself. The Ho’oponopono prayer for healing is designed to release those uncertainties that are holding you back from your true potential.
What would happen if you completely forgave yourself?
If you knew and recognized your shortcomings, but instead of remaining in a state of doubt, fear or anger, you released these emotions and used the Ho’oponopono mantra?
You might find that what was once before difficult is now easy. What you thought was a limitation in yourself was simply a way for you to learn. You can embrace the parts of you that are the most conflicted and which may hold you back.
What would happen if you thanked yourself or simply loved yourself?
When you are repeating this mantra, you are allowing this type of healing to occur.
You may begin to see yourself and others differently. The things which you are ultimately responsible for would begin to change. You would see that there is a greatness to you that comes just by accepting and understanding these words.
The words are not simple, but powerful. It allows you to rebalance yourself and begin to view yourself differently.
By applying the Ho’oponopono prayer for healing in your personal life and toward others, you will find a resolution, the release of conflict and a new perspective on life.
With this new perspective and outlook, your results will change and you will achieve what you truly desire in life.
In the past few years I have begun practicing Pranic Healing, a very particular form of healing that has served me in a cumulative, profound way. It involves becoming aware of the field of energy that surrounds each of us, and how that field has been affected – either congested or depleted – by our experiences both past and current.
My teacher, Master Co, whose own teacher, Master Choa Kok Sui (now deceased), was the founder of Pranic Healing. In a series of introductory private sessions with him, I learned how to scan (check the level of energy in a particular area of the body, mine or someone else’s), cleanse (sweep, or clear the congestion or depletion from the area), energize (revitalize the area), and stabilize once the work has been done.
Which brings me to how I unplug and recharge. The meditation that is the cornerstone of Pranic Healing brings us to a very particular understanding of how connected we are to the power source that empowers us all. It’s called the Meditation on the Twin Hearts.
It takes just a few minutes, releases negativity of all sorts and helps us to strengthen ourselves inwardly. Every time I take the time to open myself as a conduit for the healing of my own heart and the heart of the world, I am quietly uplifted and fully recharged.
This serves as a high recommendation for this work, and the strong hope that you will release any doubt that this sort of healing work is indeed possible for all of us.
5 Tips for Self-Honesty
The first step in moving ahead with any endeavor is being honest with yourself: Health – be it simply fitting into those old jeans or improving your posture, Wealth – whether financial or however else you may define wealth, or Romance – repairing a once perfect relationship. You must honestly answer the question “Do I Want To Improve My Relationship With Myself?”
Consider the following 3 strategies you can use as a guide and carry out the task of honesty to yourself:
1. First Things First
Write it out – whether, on a piece of paper or a journal, it doesn’t matter… Just be true to yourself. Reflect on what have you been dishonest about in the various aspects of your life. Write either a statement or a question keeping in mind who it is you are addressing (that being “Yourself). Your goal is to achieve a better, more honest relationship with “YOU”.
2. Don’t Be Limited To The Obvious – Dig Deeper
Fear is the biggest culprit of self-deception. Dig deep… deeper… a bit deeper. What is your greatest fear that holds you back from enjoying lasting and gratifying relationships or achieving your goals (weight loss is a tough one)? Is this fear concrete or just something created out of misguided perceptions?
Don’t allow fear to dictate who you are or what you should or shouldn’t do.
Weaving webs of deception require enormous amounts of energy and are not the healthiest thing you can do if you are to enjoy A Better Lifestyle… so Don’t!
Instead, focus your time and energy on solving the real problems at hand. You know, the ones you reflected on and jotted down on your list.
3. Stay Objective
Sugar-coating issues will not put you the path that will bear the results you need… Only honesty will do that for you.
4. Recognize The Good As Well As The Bad Within You
One habitual way we deceive ourselves is by overlooking the “imperfect” characteristics of our lives. Every now and then, it’s easier to look the other way and ignore issues instead of confronting them head-on.
Nonetheless, in all actuality overlooking issues throughout our life doesn’t solve them. It can even exacerbate the situation later on – in light of the fact that when we aren’t straightforward about our issues they can quickly become unmanageable. At that point what began as a trivial issue can turn into a considerably more concerning issue.
Speak openly and the truth about both the good and bad in your life. A level-headed conviction is a sound and sensible conviction.
5. Set Aside Time To Reflect
Allow yourself 5-10 minutes to reflect on the events that transpired in your day. Ponder on questions such as, “How did things go today? What did I do well? How might I be able to have improved the situation?”
Be frank with yourself, yet avoid being disparaging or being overcritical. The objective isn’t to hurt your self-confidence, but rather to take the particulars of the day and exploit them for a better tomorrow. Studies demonstrate that reflection assumes a key part of learning and critical thinking. When we give ourselves an opportunity to examine the experiences of our day, we can oftentimes leave with substantially greater knowledge and a clearer perception into how to enhance ourselves.
It’s important to understand and realise that “Honesty” requires daily commitment and practice – It is not something which one develops overnight, but rather, over time. The rewards being honest brings to one’s life more than compensate for the pains one may have to endure in the process.
There is no limit to what can be accomplished in life simply by practicing “Honesty”.
This week I was profoundly given an opportunity to change.
Sometimes we need to change but are afraid so we keep doing the thing(s) that makes us miserable. That is, until we’re forced to change.
Why are we afraid to change?
Just like Karma, we don’t get to choose what is best for us or what we think we deserve. Life will always know best and give us what we need.
The next time you get fired, lose money, end a relationship, just remember you will look back in the months after and be grateful for where you are at that moment.
Benefits of Meditation. Science has shown that your mind and body benefits from taking time out of your daily life to shut down and meditate. The benefits of meditation are endless, but mantras for anxiety or sinking into deep relaxation with yoga nidra will help you feel centered. Your body will thank you!
Definition of meditation….
I often get told by students that they are unable to meditate because they can’t keep their mind still. My response is that a cultivated sitting practice takes time but there are other ways to mediate if you feel seated is too difficult.
It’s best to start with walking meditation or yoga/tai chi, sport, painting, sewing etc. Whatever requires you utmost mindful attention, will assist in preparing you to practice seated meditation.
The import part of this process is not to rush your progress as there is no competition to see who can get there the fastest or who knows more about it. It is a journey not a race.
Enjoy your journey.
