Have you heard of the Hawaiian therapist who cured an entire ward of criminally insane patients without ever meeting any of them?
Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len would review each of the patients’ files, and then he healed them by healing himself through the power of Ho’oponopono, the ancient art of forgiveness. A powerful Hawaiian prayer.
Hoʻoponopono is a Hawaiian practice of reconciliation and forgiveness of oneself back to the creator. It is about clearing out old programs and being restored to love. We are influencing and healing others through healing ourselves indirectly.
When using the mantra, you’re speaking it to the Divine or your Creator. You never try to fix anyone else; you stayed focused on you and your healing.
- Love – I LOVE YOU.
- Repentance – I’M SORRY.
- Forgiveness – PLEASE FORGIVE ME.
- Gratitude – THANK YOU.
- Step One- Love
True Love for the creator and yourself, is where this process starts. If you don’t allow yourself to feel Love for you and your creator, it makes it difficult to move into repentance.
- Step two- Repentance
The first step is to realize you are responsible for all your thoughts. It is in your thought life, your actions and reactions come. Once you can genuinely understand this, it is easier for repentance to flow.
- Step Three- Ask For Forgiveness
It is not necessary to go directly to another person. What is essential is you reconcile the forgiveness within yourself.
- Step four: Gratitude – Thank You
Gratitude fills your heart with joy; it allows contentment-peace into your life and brings about changes within you. Joy is one of the top vibrational energies or feeling we can experience.
Quote: “The purpose of life is to be restored back to Love, moment to moment. To fulfill this purpose, the individual must acknowledge that he is 100 percent responsible for creating his life the way it is. He must come to see that it is his thoughts that create his life the way it is moment to moment. The problems are not people, places, and situations but rather the thoughts of them. He must come to appreciate that there is no such thing as “out there.”― Ihaleakala Hew Len
