Self Identity through
Hooponopono is a Hawaiian problem solving process to release memories
that show up as problems in our everyday lives.
approaches to problem solving and healing, most people believe that the
of the problem is with everyone and everything outside of us. We tend to
believe that if 'they'
could get their act together, our problems would be solved.
When we are willing to take 100% responsibility and let go, what is right
and perfect unfolds.
The Hooponopono process provides a step by step approach to achieving
Peace, Balance and a new meaning of life through an understanding of ones
The word Ho'oponopono
means to make right, to rectify an error.
We are the sum total of our experiences, which is to say that we are
burdened by our pasts. When we experience stress or fear in our
lives, if we would look carefully, we would find that the cause is
actually a memory. It is the emotions which are tied to these memories
which affect us now. The subconscious associates an action or person in
the present with something that happened in the past. When this occurs,
emotions are activated and stress is produced.
Ho'oponopono allows us to discover and develop a working relationship with
the Divinity within and learn to ask that in each moment, our errors in
thought, word, deed or action be cleansed. The process is essentially
about freedom, complete freedom from the past.
Every human being has a unique, Divine blueprint. Our most important task
is to find that true identity and reveal our rightful place in the
Universe. This process allows that understanding to become available.
The purpose of Ho'oponopono is to:
- Connect with the Divinity within on a moment-to-moment basis;
- To ask that movement and all it contains, be cleansed. Only the Divinity
can do that.
Only the Divinity can erase or correct memories and thought forms. Since
the Divinity created us, only the Divinity knows what is going on
with a person.
In this system, there is no need to analyze, solve, manage or cope with
problems. Since the Divinity created everything, you can just go directly
to Him and ask that it be corrected and cleansed.
In the area of problem solving: the world is a reflection of what is
happening inside us. If you
are experiencing upset or imbalance, the place to look is inside yourself,
not outside at the object you perceive as causing your problem. Every
stress, imbalance or illness can be corrected just by working on yourself.
To be an effective
problem solver, we must be willing to be 100% responsible for having
created the problem situation; that is, you must be willing to see that
the source of the problem are erroneous thoughts within yourself, not
within another. In problem solving using the Ho'oponopono process, take
your I-Dentity, your Mind and connects it up with the Original Source,
what others call LOVE or GOD. With the connection in place, appeal to LOVE
to correct the erroneous thoughts within yourself that are actualizing as
the problem for yourself first and for the other person second. The appeal
is a process of repentance and forgiveness on your part
"I am sorry for
the erroneous thoughts within me that have caused the problem for me and
for this person; please forgive me."
In response to the repentance and forgiveness appeal of the therapist,
LOVE begins the mystical process of transmuting the erroneous thoughts. In
this spiritual correction process, LOVE first neutralizes the erroneous
emotions that have caused the problem, be they resentment, fear, anger,
blame or confusion. In the next step, LOVE then releases the neutralized
energies from the thoughts leaving them in a state of void, of emptiness
With the thoughts empty, free, LOVE then fills them with Itself. The
result? You are renewed, restored in LOVE. As you are renewed so too is
the other person and all involved in the problem. Where there was despair
in the other, there is LOVE. Where there was darkness in their soul, there
is now the healing Light of LOVE.
Through the Self I Dentity of the Ho'oponopono process, you get to meet
yourself anew each moment, and you get to appreciate more and more with
each application of the process the renewing miracle of LOVE. The practice
of Ho'oponopono is about fully appreciating what another is experiencing
and then looking deep within ourselves to recognize that which
has created the other person and their condition. Once we find our
connection, we must then accept the responsibility of clearing that which
lies deep within us.
The fundamental question one asks is: "What is going on inside of me that
is causing me to experience stress?" The purpose of the process is to
identify the internal cause of the stress and to release it.
I operate my life and my relationships according to the following
1. The physical universe is an actualization of my thoughts.
2. If my thoughts are cancerous, they create a cancerous physical reality.
3. If my thoughts are perfect, they create a physical reality brimming
4. I am 100% responsible for creating my physical universe the way it is.
5. I am 100% responsible for correcting the cancerous thoughts that create
a diseased reality.
6. There is no such thing as out there. Everything exists as thoughts in
Hooponopono is about taking full responsibility for your life.
Complete responsibility means accepting it all -- even the people who
enter your life and their problems; because their problems are your
problems. They are in your life, and if you take full responsibility for
your life, then you have to take full responsibility for what they are
To live it is to transform your life as never before. By accepting the
idea of 100% responsibility the next question is how to transform yourself
so the rest of the world changes, too.
The only sure way is with "I love you". That's the code that unlocks the
healing. But you use it on you, not on others. Their problem is your
problem, remember, so working on them won't help you. They don't need
healing; you do. You have to heal you. You are the source of all the
sorry ... Please forgive me ... I love you ... Thank you
the essence of the Ho'oponopono process.
