Healing For Ourselves
& Our World
Nov 14, 20167,85650

We live in a world that is guided by the universal law of cause and

effect. What we as individuals, groups of people, communities,
societies and countries put out into the world through our
thoughts, manifests. What we put into our collective
consciousness has an effect. The cause being the thought.
Everything is energy. All things have an energetic effect. We are
all responsible for the shape of our lives and our world. We are all

connected and bound together through this principle. When we

hurt one another, whether intentionally or not, it is truly important
for us to find forgiveness and healing.

I am sorry. Please forgive me. I love

you. Thank you.
This is Hooponopono. These four sentences. It is a healing tool
we can utilize for forgiveness. At this time, we may offer it to our
newly elected world leaders, friends, family or a situation such as
the turbulent US presidential election. For those of us unfamiliar
with Hooponopono, these four sentences offered to both Hillary
Clinton and Donald Trump, as an example, may feel like an
instant trigger of built up internal emotions as many people have
been going through anger, fear, hurt, confusion, and sadness
both during and after this election. This healing modality can help
take us from those feelings to feelings of deep forgiveness,
acceptance, love and peace.
Forgiveness does not change the past, but it does enlarge the
future. Paul Boese

If there is a need to heal hurtful differences you have had with

others around the issue of this election, then you are in right the
place right now by reading this piece.

What is Hooponopono?
Hooponopono is the Hawaiian ritual of forgiveness, and it
belongs to an ancient system of teachings called Huna
(Hu=Knowledge, na=represents Wisdom). The Hawaiian islands
also go by The Land of Aloha, the land of love. It is in this
essence and spirit of Aloha that we find Hooponopono.

We all share a common path. Along that path, there is only one
great universal power that accompanies us, and that is the power

of unconditional love. It is the essence of God, and the place

where compassion and unity spring forth. Hooponopono also
means compassion in action. It helps us move past the duality
behind good and evil, which is where we become separate from
one another through judgment and condemnation. Through 4
simple sentences, Hooponopono can bring us to inner peace,
harmony and unity. It offers us a solution to solving a problem
while returning us to our divine plan.

A paradigm shift: I am sorry. Please forgive me. I love you.

Thank you.
Hooponopono is a spiritual-soul method of purification that
cleanses us from fears and worries, destructive relationship
patterns, and any religious dogmas and paradigms that oppose
our personal and spiritual development. It cleans out the
blockages in our thoughts and cell structure, for our thoughts are
made manifest in our body. This is the paradigm change.
When we notice disturbances in our harmony and thought
process because of a person, event or situation, then we can take

this conflict and make a Hooponopono:

1 Im sorry (add the persons name). We come to a stillness,
and connect within our being. We contemplate, recognize
and accept the problem, and ask for support through
courage and peace.
2 Please forgive me. We view the problem and all of its
nuances, and we go within our own heart to seek out any
part we may share in the problem. We take on 100%
responsibility for the existence of the problem within us,
another and our world. (100% responsibility=100% power).
This could, for example, be in the form of a past experience
where we have been hurt, and we are thus intensifying the
current situation with the past. Perhaps we ourselves have
made a judgement that has contributed to the conflict. These
are all examples of things that require healing from within.
3 I love you. Forgiveness takes place unconditionally, and we
pardon ourselves and others.
4 Thank you. With these words we express our faith and trust,
and we let go. A prayer of gratitude may be offered to end.
If we can accept that we are the sum total of all past thoughts,
emotions, words, deeds and actions and that our present lives
and choices are colored or shaded by this memory bank of the
past, then we begin to see how a process of correcting or setting
aright can change lives, our families and our society. Morrnah

It has been through Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len, who took over the
leadership of the Foundation of I Institute, that Hooponopono
became known throughout the world.
He spent 4 years working in the psychiatric department of the
state prison in Hawaii, which had conditions described as the
hell. Thirty prisoners were confined there. There was a chronic
shortage of security and staff. Many employees put in their notice
as soon as possible after beginning employment, and even
handcuffed prisoners were known to inflict violence upon staff.
While Dr. Hew Len worked there, he never met with a single

prisoner. Instead, he spent his days in his office reading their

case reports several times daily. With each prisoners report, he
looked inward, and asked himself what darkness, negativity,
power and hatefulness could possibly be within him that it too
could be in another, and thus exist in his world. When he found
something within himself, he did a Hooponopono.
After 1.5 years, the atmosphere and mood of the prison hospital
had completely altered. After 18 months, none of the prisoners
needed to wear handcuffs, and they walked freely. People came
happily to work, and the illnesses declined. Therapeutic
conversations could then be held with the inmates, and after 4
years all of the inmates, except for 2, were completely cured. The
institution closed.
How was this possible? Through Hooponopono, Dr. Hew Len
worked to continually cleanse his own heart, and take 100%
responsibility for the existence of the prisoners in his life.
This study has been well documented, and Hooponopono is now
an acknowledged therapy in the USA. There are also more than
50 studies for forgiveness at the diplomatic level.
You are today where your thoughts have brought you, and
tomorrow you will be where your thoughts will bring you.
James Allen
Another form to do the Hooponopono is to begin with I love you
for unification at the beginning:

Before the sun goes down, forgive. Hawaiian Proverb

Please, take the time to say it aloud. Some people have reported
that it has had a miraculous effect when they even whispered it.
Looking into your own eyes in a mirror while saying those 4
healing sentences can also be quite a testament to its
extraordinary effect.
Forgiveness is not a one-time thing, forgiveness is a lifestyle.
Dr. Martin Luther King
If we all practice Hooponopono, look within, forgive, heal and
love, then perhaps we can begin to see a shift in our lives as well
as in our governments. Through cleansing what we have
witnessed during this election season, there is hope for a deep
shift within and without. Its time to love ourselves and each other

more. We all need more love.

Lets open ourselves to Hooponopono

as a way to heal our inner and outer
Deepest love and appreciation to Ulrich E. Dupree for writing the
book, Hooponopono: The Hawaiian Forgiveness Ritual As The
Key To Your Lifes Fulfillment. This little book has been with me
for 2 years now. Thus, a lot of the information I have shared in
this article has come from it. I am grateful for the balance, peace
and healing that it continues to bring into my life.

This is the website of Dr. Ihaleakalal Hew Len.

Finally, Aloha International has a wonderful list of books and

resources (some free) to help understand more about the Huna

healing art of Hawaii and Hawaiian Shamanism.
If you have other resources or references that may help people
heal through Hooponopono and Huna, please leave a link in the
comment section for us to all access and, thus, from which we
can continue to heal and grow.
Peace begins with me. I am a part of the Universe. When I
change, the world changes too. Peace begins with each and
every one of us.
There is only one corner of the Universe you can be sure of
improving, and thats your own self. Aldous Huxley

Aloha, I see the divine in you, and I see the divine in myself. May
we all find the healing we need, and may we all treat ourselves
and others with respect, dignity, compassion, acceptance and
love. When we heal ourselves, we heal the world. Peace be with
me, and peace be with you.
