Ho’oponopono means to make right. Essentially, it means to make it right with the ancestors, or to make right with the people with whom you have relationships, including yourself.
It is important to realize that when we forgive others, who are we forgiving? Ourselves, of course.
Ho’oponopono is a process of letting go of toxic energies within you, allowing the grace of Divine thoughts,words, deeds, and actions to flow within you.
Ho’oponopono requires that you take 100% Total Responsibility for Your Life. This means that everything in your life—simply because it is in your life—is your responsibility. In a literal sense, the entire world is your creation. If you take complete responsibility for your life, then everything you see, hear, taste, touch, or in any way experience is your responsibility because it is in your life. Absorb this thought!
Understand that to LOVE yourself is the greatest way to improve yourself.
So you need to ask, “What is in me that has brought this (situation) to my doorstep?”
To do Ho’oponopono, you do not have to know what the problem or error is. All you have to do is notice there is a problem you are experiencing physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually.
Once you notice and accept it, your responsibility is to immediately begin to clean the energy that surrounds and brought it and say:
Please forgive me.
I Love you.
After 2 rounds, ask yourself: “What is it in me that brought this to my doorstep?”
Doing so, memories will come up. Follow those memories! Repeat the mantra for at least 5 minutes.
What blocks our well-being is nothing more than lack of Love. Forgiveness opens the door to allow Love back in.
Doing this process doesn’t always mean instant results. The idea isn’t to achieve results, but to achieve peace. When you find peace, what was desired often follows.
Ho’oponopono is a process of repentance, forgiveness, and transmutations; it is a petition to Love, asking Love to nullify and replace those toxic energies with Love. Love accomplishes this by flowing through the mind, beginning with the spiritual mind—the super-conscious. It then continues its flow through the intellectual mind—the conscious mind—freeing it of thinking energies. Finally, it moves into the emotional mind—the subconscious—voiding thoughts of toxic emotions and filling them with Love.
This is a continuous process, one that you will find yourself clearing and cleansing often as your day unfolds. It takes minutes and it takes awareness. However, these are the most important words to recite:
Please Forgive Me
I Love You
Ho’opoopono is very much a way of Life. It brings peace, grounding and balance into your Life.
As you do the Ho’oponopono, memories will arise. Allow them to come! Follow them! For it is these memories that are the fuel for what is happening in your life.
We live in one of two states: Memory or Inspiration.
We, as human beings, have a tendency to hold on to our memories, or as I call them: “Hand holds of the Past.”
Let go of them, for they no longer serve you. Remember to direct the Ho’oponopono to yourself! This is key.
While you recite the Ho’oponopono prayer, play a soft, slow instrumental piece of music. Playing this music during the day in the background continues the energy of the Ho’oponopono–the mantra repeats as the music plays.
As mentioned, this is a continuous process.
If you are addressing a chronic illness or dis-ease, direct the Ho’oponopono to yourself. When a memory pops in, follow that memory. You will see or sense the memory shifting. Flow with it and release. Even if you should feel there is nothing to release, continue anyway.
