What does Ho'oponopono teach us?

Ho'oponopono, a philosophy of life above all

For a very long time, Hawaiians have used Ho'oponopono to resolve problems, forgive and transform their daily lives.

More specifically, it was used to repair an error and above all to aspire to change .

And this is necessary when we are looking for love and inner peace.

By the way, what is the principle of Ho'oponopono?

A Hawaiian tradition

Ho'oponopono is therefore a very old Hawaiian tradition which is transmitted orally from generation to generation. This “art” of living, this philosophy has always been practiced to help restore peace within oneself but also to restore peace within a community or a family when relational problems or issues arise. important. Ho'oponopono allows me to bring appeasement and reconciliation by restoring balance through mediation and mutual forgiveness .

Original ho'oponopono in practice

The initial practice of Ho'oponopono consisted of meeting under the guidance of a guide, a priest or simply a person designated by the group to whom the problem was presented. The discussions were interspersed with times of silence and moments of deep prayer. After a few hours, or even several days, when everyone had recognized their own responsibility in the present situation, then came the time for forgiveness and repentance. Then everyone freed themselves from their anxieties, their aggression, their bad emotions and found peace.


Modern hoponopono:

Mornah Nalamaku Simeona , shaman in Hawaii, modernized this traditional Ho'oponopono in 1976 in order to adapt it to the modern world and also to the Western world.

Mornah thought that Ho'oponopono could also be practiced alone and this is how she laid the foundations of a new teaching while keeping as a pillar for this practice, forgiveness to open oneself to love and move towards inner peace .

She worked with Dr. Hew Len who became known for his work as a psychologist in a psychiatric department of a Hawaii penitentiary. He remained in this establishment in his position as manager for almost four years and, at the end of this time, this psychiatric wing had to close its doors because all the patients were cured .

Doctor Len, when discussing this extraordinary story, responded in annoyance when asked by what means he had "cured" his patients:
I didn't heal anyone, I only cleared the memories inside me that created all of this, I didn't do anything else .”

Mornah proposed that Ho'oponopono could henceforth be practiced alone without the presence of the protagonists of the problem or the presence of a guide and she set up a new teaching in which she stated some basic principles:

  • Physical reality is a creation of our thoughts.
  • Right and harmonious thinking will create a right, harmonious and peaceful reality.
  • We take 100% responsibility for what we perceive outside of us.

Its key sentence:

Peace begins with me

And the essential question whose answer could be provided by Ho'oponopono :

" Who am I "

She said :

The main aim of this process is to discover the Divinity within us. Ho'oponopono is a profound gift that allows each person to develop a cooperative relationship with the Divinity within and learn how to ask that in each moment, our errors in thoughts, words and actions be cleaned. The process essentially aims for freedom, complete liberation from the past. »

Mornah also explains how Ho'oponopono works :

“We are the sum total of our experiences, which is to say that we are charged with our pasts. When we experience stress or fear in our lives, if we focus on seeing carefully, we might realize that the cause is actually a memory. It is the emotions that are linked to these memories that affect us now. The subconscious associates an action or person in the present with something that happened in the past. When this happens, emotions are activated and stress arises.

Hooponopono is about making peace with your creation and with yourself.

According to the teaching of Mornah :

We are here only to bring peace to our own lives, and if we bring peace to our own lives, everything around us finds its own place, its own rhythm and peace .

How to use Ho'oponopono?

Take control of your life

Many people are single, but very few know that if they are single, it is above all a personal desire, each person being in control of their life. So the basic principle of Hoponopono is to become aware of this.

You can therefore start with the famous exercise "I didn't..." which consists of listing the shortcomings you have had, referring to your last romantic relationship for example.

This list is very personal; but it might sound like this: “I didn’t take advantage of my singlehood to move.” The main thing is to transform this into something positive , i.e. for example “I preferred to stay in the same environment”. After this little exercise, you will not only feel a certain inner peace, but also understand that you are a free person who makes your own choices .

Everyone has within themselves the keys to act

You will then have to make changes for your well-being. So, practicing Ho'oponopono is about saying " sorry " to all the disappointment you have had in your life. It could be your ex who didn't make your life easier, the work that takes up too much space... It is only by doing this that you will be able to change your inner feelings.

Another method of Ho'oponopono consists of grabbing a blank sheet of paper, a pencil and a compass to try to set objectives. You will use all these accessories to draw a circle with a diameter of at least 15 cm. Take care to divide it in two; with a color, color a part, the one that represents you . With another color, mark the center of the circle with a point . This is your center of interest, the goal you want to achieve.

So, you will have to fuel your ambition: once a day, you will fix this point and put all your attention there . Do this while breathing calmly while knowing that the exercise is designed to last between 5 and 10 minutes. This is not easy, because your gaze will tend to go outside the circle. The challenge is to stay focused during the exercise.

The benefits of this exercise can be easily amplified by a short meditative phase by exercising focus and visualization on natural jewelry and other semi-precious stone objects .

Forgive to finally free yourself

There is a simple exercise to easily achieve this goal . Forgiveness allows you to avoid living with resentment. Usually, when your partner wants to apologize, they write a text message asking for forgiveness. But since you cannot expect this from him, you can take the initiative to grant this forgiveness by writing yourself a letter.

You will then have to pretend as if the letter came from outside and read it, concentrating on the texture of the paper, the color of the ink, the objective being to engrave this forgiveness in the memory. So, you can reread this letter 3 times a day for a week. This will allow you to turn the page easily.
