Ho’oponopono is the traditional Hawaiian Practice of Forgiveness and Healing. It is an important practice for one to find compassion, forgiveness and gratitude for both our relationships and for oneself. This practice will assist you in accepting the way truths make their way to oneself. Ho’oponopono will show your heart something it already recognizes, because ones heart is already designed to recognize the truth. This practice is designed to remove the veil that keeps one from expressing true nature. Ho’oponopono will cleanse your heart by opening your heart, then welcoming “what is”, and finally to let go of the veil, stop clinging to, and trust in ones belief in their God that we all carry within ourselves. Ho’oponopono through practice will help one discover the path that is most appropriate because it will speak from the heart – Open your heart and remember: “It is only with the heart that one can see clearly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.” (Antoine de Saint Exupery, The Little Prince)
Ho’ponopono uses 4 phrases: “I’m sorry, Forgive me, Thank You, I love you” that assist one in acknowledging pain or errors made, the ability to understand that one did not know that one could cause that pain, the ability to release and/or cleanse the memory of pain, and to embrace the inner meaning of loving oneself.
Sessions held normally last between forty-five minutes to an hour depending on the individual(s). Most importantly, the student(s) of Ho’oponopono must show the willingness to trust the Instructor and be open as well as honest with oneself in order to understand that this practice is an art of living in order to embrace its true content. The connection to ones own heart will help to return to our true nature. Ho’oponopono will give you a taste of adventure as well as provide guidance as one continues in the exploration of life.
