‘Make Things Right’ Anytime
Ho’oponopono is the ancient Hawaiian practice of ‘putting things right’ inside one’s self that brought into the public spotlight in a big way by a master, Dr Hew Len via Joe Vitali. Read more about its origins here: WIKI
Total Responsibility, according to Hew Len, advocates that everything exists as a projection from inside the human being
The basic English translation for the ancient Hawaiian term Hoʻoponopono is ‘to put things right’ and is used in the areas of self healing, reconciliation and mental cleansing. It is a way of loving yourself by being responsible for your own life and healing your own hurts, which is very doable with this approach of evoking love from within. Simply put, if some thing, one or situation is upsetting you, it is up to you to speak to your inner self with one or all four of these powerful statements in any order as an immediate way to invoke the calmness and love to neutralize the negative energy. The appropriate words or course of action or even non-action will be made apparently clear to you at the right time.
I love you, I’m sorry, Please forgive me, Thank you.
I call this the Lifesaver Mantra because ever since I took the practitioner certification course in 2020 as taught by Dr Hew Len and started defaulting to Ho’oponopono at the hint of anxiety I could quickly align with my centered state at the flip of a switch. And thank goodness because I was dealing with some pretty heavy stuff at the time.
(Dr Ihaleakala Hew Len 1939-2022)
For myself as a meditation expert who plays in the void, Ho’oponpono goes beyond simple relaxation and energy clearing to create phenomenal peace amidst several storms of chaos. Plus, the ripple effects of such serenity became very evident in those around me, as well…and still do.
I am eternally grateful to Dr Hew Len for sharing this ancient Hawaiian practice
Sometimes you find yourself frantically dog-paddling in the deep end of emotional turbulence or teetering on the edge of your limbic threshold. This mantra can help bring you and your emotional sea back into balance and calm. Where meditation is a tool for mindful awareness and allowing more light energy into your personal space, Ho’oponopono is a tool for that plus integrating the light into your life so you can experience those expanded states of consciousness as the norm.
It’s like meditation on steroids
The words themselves are simple enough and you can say any one of the statements at any time to yourself or anyone else without a second thought. The difference and main aspect of the Ho’oponopono technique is the approach to these words: total responsibility. You recognize that every thing and every person you experience has a connection to your deeper self somewhere, be it the past or even ancestral.
The point is you take responsibility for it ALL, which is why the words are directed to the divine inside of you that is connected to Source. Only the divine can know and effect what changes need to happen for all involved. As long as you remember where to direct the mantra and why, you will create many surprising miracles if you simply just allow the divine to do its thing as you do yours.
DON’T direct it at other people…DO direct it to the divine/higher self in you
Simple, yet powerfully effective
To say this mantra is powerful is a understatement when you notice the positive results in your relationships with others just because you decided to not fruitlessly blame them, but to take charge of your own feelings. The phrase “I’m sorry” is not about blaming yourself either; it is about acknowledging your innocence and that you were acting without enough awareness that created the hardship.
As with any mantra, repeat it often daily to maintain inner peace and when under duress it will help to calm the nervous system more quickly so you can get back to attracting the joys of living. You can say it in any order you prefer and when things are going really well you can reinforce that wellness by making the two lines I love you & Thank you the most prevalent thoughts in your head – and then observe the amazing ripple effects.
Sometimes I just Ho’oponopono the crap out of stuff
Right and wrong way
Believe it or not, there is a right way to do the Ho’oponopono that cannot be stressed enough. The words are directed quietly to the divine in yourself or your inner space; they are never used to try and change another person or projected onto anyone else. That is the nature of being totally responsible for your own state of being regardless of who you hang out with. Change happens within you first and then another only through a divine exchange and if they are ready according to their own soul’s journey.
Loving yourself is the greatest way to better yourself, and as you better yourself, you better the world
Get ready for some real change
With practice using Ho’oponopono comes noticeable and lasting change in such unimaginable ways that you will be glad you let the divine work out the details as you do your part with the mantra. Oftentimes it’s truly magical when suddenly a person you’ve had issues with begins to stay their outbursts in your presence; that’s powerful. Other times you’ll learn someone is truly not your energetic match at this point in your life and they will be distracted away. The trick to dealing with anxious moments as well as emotional upheaval is the same: do the Ho’oponopono.
LoA Tip: BE the change you want to see in your life & the world will respond in kind
JEFTA relationship cycle
In studying the mechanics of being human I came to discover precisely how relationships are formed and at what point meditation practices are integrated into that cycle. Note that everything begins with a Judgement, good or bad, and without that our emotions remain unaffected. This is how I teach it in the Magnetic Moxie meditation training course.
The Relationship Cycle explained
- Judgment (love or fear-based) learned through childhood perception or conditioning
- Emotions (healthy or unhealthy) the brain’s response to judgment releases certain chemicals into the nervous system to create an identifying emotion
- Feelings (pleasant or unpleasant) chemicals in the nervous system create sensations in the body that reflect identifying feelings
- Thoughts (real or imagined) sensations in the body stimulate the mind to find a logical connection to the outer world that justifies the feeling
- Actions (constructive or destructive) thoughts guide action to form an interaction with ourselves and others
Transformation with Relaxation & Ho’oponopono
Because a Judgment & its attached Emotion is in the Past while Thoughts and Actions are in the Future, we integrate the Ho’oponopono meditation technique at the Feeling state which is in Present here-and-now and the only place we can exist. From here we can transmute unpleasantness to be one of Inner Peace no matter the underlying emotion and thus change thoughts and actions to correspond with the feeling of peace in our relationships to ourselves and others. We then spiral our way out of the belief pattern all together with practice, as the emotional charge decreases every time it’s triggered.
Do Ho’oponopono often during the day to stay centered
