A Prayer for Forgiveness
Harnessing the power of the Ho’oponopono for radical self-acceptance and love
What is the Ho'oponopono
Ho’oponopono is an ancient Hawaiian prayer ritual of reconciliation, forgiveness and manifestation composed of four powerful phrases:
The word “Ho’o” means “to create,” and “pono” means “right.”
Ho’oponopono means: “To make things right with one Self and others.”
It is more than a prayer alone; it's a ritual dedicated to making things right in your relationships - with others, Ancestors, God, Mother Earth and your Highest Self.
The Purpose of Ho’oponopono
The philosophy behind this prayer ritual is that we are each responsible for what shows up in our reality. We own our feelings and our experiences. So even if someone else has wronged us, we're the ones saying "I am sorry. Forgive me…"
As living, breathing, energetic magnets who are constantly attracting what needs to be observed and reconciled within us, the foundation of this practice is rooted in self-accountability. “If I am seeing it externally, there is work required of me to cleanse and heal it internally.”
When you cleanse your consciousness, you contribute to the cleansing of the collective consciousness. When you forgive others, you too, are forgiven and when you right any wrongs in your beliefs, you adjust and amend problems in your physical realm.
The Benefits of Ho’oponopono?
The simple yet powerful practice of Ho’oponopono helps you understand and heal the experiences in your life that you’ve attracted or participated in, or have been affected by (directly or epigenetically). It is only once we acknowledge, accept and integrate these lessons from a place of repentance, love, forgiveness and gratitude that we can distill them into the wisdom that breaks the generational cycles that keep us emotionally, mentally + spiritually enslaved.
As you deepen your Ho’oponopono practice you may notice:
Abundance of new opportunities
Sudden shifts in perspective of Self + others
Deeper connections within your relationships
Peace of Mind
The Power of the Ho'oponono + Dr. Hew Len's Story
Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len, a Hawaiian therapist gained notoriety when he healed an entire ward of mentally ill criminals at Hawaii State Hospital between 1983-1987 without seeing or facilitating therapy sessions with any of them.
When he asked what shifted in the patients, he responded “I was simply healing the part of me that created them.” Dr. Hew Len embodied a simple yet profound universal truth; your entire world and everything and everyone in it, is of your creation. We are energetic magnets that attract what we need to see, acknowledge and heal within us. Meaning, your external reality is nothing more than a hologram of your internal beliefs, thoughts, feelings, and programming.
Change your Self, Change your World.
