How did I get to Ho'oponopono?

“Clean, erase, erase and find your own Shangri-La. Where? Within yourself”. – Morrnah Nalamaku Simeona

Morrnah Nalamaku SimeonaMorrnah Nalamaku Simeona (May 19, 1913 – February 11, 1992) was recognized as a Kahuna lapaʻau (healer) in Hawaii. She was honored by the State of Hawaii as a Living Treasure in 1983.

Creator of Self Identity through Ho'oponopono, Morrnah founded Pacifica Seminars in the 1970s and in 1980 The Foundation of 'I', Inc. (Freedom of the Cosmos).
Self I-dentity through Ho'oponopono uses techniques to create a working partnership among the three parts of the mind or self, subconscious, conscious and superconscious.

"The main purpose of this process is to discover the Divinity within oneself. The Ho'oponopono is a profound gift which allows one to 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". – Morrnah Nalamaku Simeona

Self I-dentity through Ho'oponopono allows us to reclaim our personal inner connection with Love, our Divine Source, resulting in Peace, Harmony and Freedom. Morrnah's updated version of this ancient Hawaiian philosophy of problem solving was left to mankind as a gift to be shared and practiced.

Before Morrnah's updated version, the ancient form of Ho'oponopono meant that the whole family had to be present. Nobody could be absent. There was a moderator and each member had the chance to ask forgiveness from the others. You see, nowadays families don't live close or together as they once did. To reunite the whole family and put them all in a room at the same time would be very challenging.

Ihaleakala Hew LenDr. Ihaleakalá worked, traveled and presented with Morrnah for years and also updated the Self I-dentity through Ho'oponopono to make it even easier and more applicable in modern times. The new process became individualized so that it could be practiced alone.

I remember Ihaleakalá once told me, “if I would have told you guys 10 years ago there was nobody out there, you would have run away as fast as you could.” Now we are ready to entertain the idea that it is just our thoughts (memories) of our family. There is nothing really "out there", it is all inside of us and our memories.

I can tell you from experience, since I took my first Self I-dentity training, things have gotten so much easier. See, the Universe is moving faster, and we are still stuck trying to "understand it all!"

I took my first training with Ihaleakalá in July of 1997 in Omaha, Nebraska, this is when I invited him to come to Los Angeles. I coordinated (sponsored) Self-Identity through Ho'oponopono (SITH) for the first time in January of 1998. At that time I was still practicing and attending other seminars. It was not until around the middle of 1999, after taking several SITH trainings and coordinating a lot of other trainings for Ihaleakalá in California and Argentina, that I realized I had found what I was looking for and decided to ride one horse.

I remember one afternoon Ihaleakalá came back from walking with tears in his eyes, he said, "I just realized that all God is asking from us, is to take good care of ourselves and to say I am sorry. That is it."

Throughout the twelve years I lived with Ihaleakalá, he shared with me the many cleaning tools that would appear to him during consultations, trainings, meditations and long walks.

On another occasion Ihaleakalá told me that God didn't know how to make it easier so we would do it, he continued to say, “God asked me: what do they like to eat? I will put it in their food!”

I traveled with Ihaleakalá to Amsterdam, Brussels, France, England and many other countries. He ed and attended as a student, at the first Ho'oponopono training in Ireland, where I presented with Mary Koehler (Master Coordinator now of IZI LLC). We then continued to present trainings in Mt. Shasta, San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Buenos Aires, Argentina.

By the time Ihaleakalá decided to retire. Yes, he had retired at one point and California was the last center he let go. This was sometime in 2002, I felt in my heart, for the first time,  that I could teach Ho’oponopono. I asked the Foundation of I, Inc. (Freedom of the Cosmos) and they decided to meditate on it –since the secrets of Ho’oponopono are not rational, but “acquired” by those who live with them- until finally they gave me their blessing. That was when I started teaching it. I taught Self I-Dentity through Ho’oponopono (SITH) on behalf of the Foundation for many years, until in 2004 I asked permission to create my own Ho’oponopono seminars using the material of the Foundation. That was how I got the permission
Well, the rest is a long story, one I will share with you on another occasion.  So, after many years of having a double career, in November of 2008 I decided to leave my very stable career as a tax accountant in Los Angeles, not because I had savings or was debt free, on the contrary. As always, every time I made illogical, non-sense decisions, I always got the most amazing results. Now I am debt free and travel the world teaching Ho'oponopono in a very practical and down to earth way.
Ho'oponopono works for everybody! And can change your life professionally and personally. I am a living testimony that the results are guaranteed.

Thank you dear Mabel,
I am grateful that we've had the opportunity to be in your presence, to listen, to learn, to learn how to live in the easiest way. Thank you for all the benefits we get from you. When I listen to your videos, and read your words, I have more strength to do more, to be in present, to clean all the time, to let go, to trust. I always hear from you something I need at that moment. Thank you soooo much Thank you ♥️♥️♥️

Recently I’ve received the opportunity to say, “Thank You and I Love You” to a very long list of ‘problems’ showing up in my life all at once. Not knowing how to deal with it all, I just kept cleaning moment-to-moment, without expecting anything from it. Days later, little Miracles of Inspiration started falling from the heavens: Hubby apologized for his stressful difficult behavior, and even remembered our Anniversary for once! Without my asking, he then promised to repair the car, get the plumbing fixed, and remedy emergency home improvements. The plumbers also unexpectedly expressed how much they love my paintings, making quite a big deal about all the happiness my paintings bring to them! All the while, they talked about Metaphysics, Quantum Physics, and The Power of Love. Their surprising enthusiasm for my artwork inspired me to return to painting, after a very long absence from my studio. Experiencing the transmutational Power of Love, I now realize that ‘problems’ are lovely angels-in-disguise; offering opportunities to clean, and receive little Miracles of Heavenly Inspiration… Hope this story somehow inspires and encourages the cleaning, when so-called ‘problems’ {angels-in-disguise} show up in life.. Thank You… I Love You… ort.

I am so grateful to know Ho’oponopono. It's changed my life. I used to be a very angry and rude person. I'm thankful to my coach for letting me know about Ho’oponopono. I have become a better person, more loving and kind. This was the first time I attended to a Mabel Katz' seminar and I felt so humbled and enlightened. I still have a lot to clean. I will be forever grateful to Morrnah Simeona, Dr Ihaleakala Hew Len, Mabel Katz and the whole Ho’ oponopono community. I am deeply grateful with all my heart for your love and support.

Looking back at your last workshop, I became soft. I am deeply grateful for finding my way back to this softness. Since that workshop, I’ve had many moments in this soft state. I can clearly see how many times I have failed in this lifetime. But, now I am grateful for the failures. Because I didn’t stop. I kept trying…again and again. I think this is why your picture of the baby getting up and trying to walk again is a very strong one for me. It reminds me to keep getting up, again and again. I know that when old patterns kick in, and hardness comes, that I can keep trying, that I can choose to become soft again.

At that same training, I also experienced the power of giving. Monday morning, I had some extra time before my plane left, so I visited the city-center. A man with a small child on his lap was begging for money. My first reaction was to refuse, but the sight of the child made me come back and give him money. Later that day, I had tea and a sandwich at a cafe and asked the waiter where I could find a taxi-stand. He gave me directions to the town square, which I followed. When I arrived at the square, I saw a bus with the sign "Airport" on the window. I took the bus instead of the taxi…and paid seven times less than I would have with a taxi.

I feel inspired to make a new start. And I am deeply grateful.

Mabel Thank you for visiting this part of Europe which yearns for your truth and living faith. Thanks to your programs that bring us closer to sublime spirituality. Thanks to Ho'oponopno that helps us all so much. Many miracles have happened to me in the last two years, especially since the first seminar I took with you. Now I can say I even feel the mystic side of Ho'oponopono techniques. Thank you... I am so happy in my heart because people notice also the bracelet of the flor de lis on my arm and they ask me about Ho'oponopono technique. I feel happy when I talk about Ho'oponopono and I am grateful to God when somebody start to practice Ho'oponopono. Once more thank you dear Mabel and Karmen for everything 💗

- Dario, Croatia

Dear Mabel,
Hope you remember me, we met in November 2014 in Astana, Kazakhstan, and I am the sister of an autistic child. For better understanding I attached a picture.
I want to say, Thank You! Because I have been practicing Ho'oponopono since I came from the seminar. I practice it all the time, I apply all the teachings and tools. I've felt pain on my chest where my heart is. They came suddenly, with no reason, and dissapeared the same way. Thus I concluded that blocks could go away from my body this way. I saw significant changes that happened with me. I live in peace with myself. My mom says I became wiser, I never quarrel and I always try to forgive. I had a problem with my job, I could not find the place or work I loved, but this year I started to work in such a good place. I am now working with good people and at a job I like. It seems like everything is helping me and it only depends on myself. I will continue cleaning. I am really grateful for this seminar. I also wanted to share that we started a new treatment with my little sister. I know everything will be ok. We'll see.
Thank you for showing up in my life,

- Aliya, Russia

I love that you are so kind and responsive to your followers. I want to tell you that last night I tried sleeping with the seminar manual I received when I took the seminar last February, 17th , in Los Angeles. However, I wasn’t able to sleep and I kept repeating “light switch” all night long instead -which is normal to me , what it´s not usual is to have a sleepless night- , snoozing a couple of minutes between short dreams reliving memories of the past . But, I kept cleaning looking at my watch , being grateful while repeating “light switch” I got up earlier than usual and I wasn’t tired , since being awake exhausted me a lot but I fell good today, it was different.
Since I took the seminar, I have been practicing all the tools with much more passion and the results have been amazing! Situations that used to deeply affect me emotionally do not do any more or not so much lately. Regarding “light switch,” I was able to help a client of mine to help her son who was going to be 180 days in prison. After using this tool he was sentenced to only 7 days house arrest and the rest of the sentence on probation.
Another great result I want to tell you is that a couple of days ago I was told that I ´m going to get my legal immigration documents in only a few months and for sure this is due to HO´OPONOPONO . I´m very happy this door opened up for me after living 12 years as an illegal immigrant and have been practicing all this for only year now.
Thank you so much for sharing so many blessings with so many people who are making possible all this extension of gratitude and harmony.
The blue solar water tastes great, I prepare a kind of lemonade and I give it to my kids who enjoy it very much. I gives me a lot of energy and my anxiety goes down too. A couple of months ago I was a bit worried regarding my thyroids problem and the overweight that has caused, now I´m at peace and accept 100% responsibility for all that comes my way. I love listening to her CDs. because of Mabel´s vibration that it´s extremely high. I cannot feel this with that many people. She has a high frequency within herself. I´m a very sensitive person and as I listen to her voice I can feel her aura and the harmony within.
I´m sorry, I don’t know if it´s you Mabel who is reading these words but I felt that I had to tell and whoever read it will also benefit from them.
Thank you and a million blessings for so much LIGHT!

The story of my participation in this weekend's seminar in Budapest:

Ever since they announced the seminars here I felt that I had to participate, but I was made a slave to my mind: "Right now I can't do it because I am consumed by my business," I thought and I let it go.
Klara wrote to me in Facebook and we corresponded a bit, since we had not been in contact for months. It was a sign for me and in a few moments I noticed that my rational mind had turned off.

In that moment I felt that I could pay and participate as an absentee and that it would all work out. That is what I did. I paid the absentee price for the seminar.

I let go of the worry and I trusted.
A few days later, my landlord contacted me to tell me that I would pay less this month due to an overpayment and they even refunded me money.
The amount they refunded me was exactly the price of the seminar.

The moral of the story: When we let go of worries, things come to us at the perfect moment. Not one minute before, not one minute after.

With love,

- Erika, Hungary

Aloha Mabel,
Thanks for the seminar in Miami, for me, it was great.
It was a spectacular location and impeccable organization. Thanks to Paola and the other organizers.
I’d like to mention that until that day I was trying to establish a relationship with my inner child, but I felt I could not get it. Sometimes my heart accelerated while I tried. To my surprise, my inner child was presented as a BOY and I even knew his name.
Since then we have created a close relationship, which can be confirmed by my joy and happiness.
Thank you for your beautiful mission to awaken and bring Peace to all.
I love you, Aloha!

Thank you for all your seminars in which you have allowed participation in absence, because they are accelerating my internal changes so fast... although I'm not sure what they are about, my body, as a tuning fork, is vibrating all the time in those high and sacred vibrations that only the 'vision' of Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta made me experience with so much strength, love and persistence in the past.
People around me who had serious health problems and are now better - and some are very well; although they do not know, I know in my heart that it has been because of the Great Divine Gift of the Sacred Ho'oponopono Cleaning...
May God Bless you Now and Forever! ...
Hope Angels will always be with you on your Sacred Path!

Thank you so much for sharing your experiences and knowledge regarding the Zero Frequency® Program. Our personnel was pleasantly surprised with how something so simple - or at least that's how you conveyed it - can be so powerful and have the ability to transform us and, therefore, offer our university a greater probability of development.
Going back to zero, and letting go of negative emotions and habits can open up a new world. It's like starting over, from a new platform, where we are able to keep all of our knowledge and abilities, but eliminate all of our self imposed limits.
Continue teaching. Many of us will thank you for it. With no further ado, I wish to reiterate my deep respect and gratitude.

I have a service company and I work with big clients.
Once, I was participating in an auction (bid) for a contract with an important Bank here in Romania.
In the first step of the process they asked me for a lot of papers, including a financial statement that demonstrated I didn't have any debts. This was very complicated for me, because I had debts of around 20.000 Euros and this paper was mandatory to go to the next step of the process. So I've started to practice Ho'oponopono and I received an inspiration: I asked them if I could send the paper after one month and they said yes. That was very unusual and even illogical (I have an Accounting Bachelor's Degree and I know how things work in this area). I thought that if I'll go to the demonstration step, I'll find the way to borrow the money after. I decided to let go, didn't think about it, and I've just kept practicing Ho'oponopono for 2 weeks.
One day, I received an email from them, and I've thought they'll ask me for the paper. To my surprise, they called me to negotiate the prices and they never asked for the paper, or the demonstration of my services! After that, I've signed a one year contract with them. I was able to pay all my debts with that money I received from this client, and my business is growing. Ho'oponopono works!
I also would like to share that I've renegotiated a contract one week ago, and I didn't use any of the negotiating tools that I teach people in my classes! I just did Ho'oponopono and taking 100% responsibility. I told Mabel via Skype I was worried because they wanted a big discount from me and Mabel reminded me not to worry or think about it, to go and have fun, detach and go to the meeting like a little child and no expectations. I did, and guess what? They never mentioned anything about my fees and they cut a check right there for me for the amount I had asked them for my services without any discount.
Thank you Mabel and Ho'oponopono!

Wonderful Moments... Magical moments... Full of reflection, intense emotions, you are my guide, I'm aware that I'm still in the beginning stages. Zero Frequency was very profound to me, it seemed like all the material was dedicated especially for me, great lesson my dear teacher, I still feel that huge energy you spread and pass on, beautiful Mabel. May God enlighten your path. God bless. Thank you, I love you.

Hi Mabel,
I so enjoyed the workshop and hope to attend again. I came with a question on how to "let go" and got my answer from divinity (through you) on how that happens. It is the cleaning process it self. Every time I "clean" I am letting go. Now I must tell you, this is the 2nd time I have attended your workshop and although this time I felt much much lighter when I left, it seems to me that more comes up to clean and that I must say it is not always pleasant. However I am doing my best to always talk to my inner child and not have expectations, which at the moment is not too easy, considering what is coming up. But at least I know this will let go of the situation through divinity in divinity's time and a lot of the time I go to sleep listening to one of the downloads of you that I have, instructing my inner child to listen and apply what it is listening too. My hope is that by doing this, she will get more and more proficient at cleaning. I would love to come to Banff but it is not the right time, so please do this seminar again as I so would love to come. Sounds wonderful.

Thanks Mabel for following your heart and divinity. You are inspiration to me to do the same.

I love you, Peace of I

Dear Mabel.
My name is Eran. I participated in your session in Tel Aviv on 12/18.
I was inspired by the way you performed. I enjoyed your sense of humor and the light way you gave your lecture. I mostly like the way you treat the cellphones thing.
The most significant tool I took that day was the inner child. Of course I connected to the cleaning 24hs, mostly in the relationship with my wife. Although, I was familiarized with some things about the Ho'oponopono.
After your workshop I feel much more connected to Ho'oponopono . Next time you come I intend to invite my mother also. Today I am reading your book. I feel Ho'oponopono is an easy way to make changes in my life.
Thank you very much.

- Eran - Israel

The series was extremely insightful and helpful. Mabel was very gracious in sharing her wisdom and I learned a lot. I encourage anyone thinking of taking a seminar with Mabel to go for it. You won't be disappointed!

- Thomas, California, USA

Hello Mabel! I met you in March this year, and in June I attended the Saturday’s seminar in Buenos Aires... it was really wonderful!!! I'm from Caleta Olivia, Santa Cruz... I work in the oil industry, but after attending the seminar, I asked for divine guidance regarding my current job and I received answers!!! So, I tell you that I started working part-time and on 11/01 I’ll leave this job to allocate 100% to something I like and thanks to you I restarted, pastry making!!! I do not worry, I know that God will provide me and that a new stage is beginning in my life, everything I needed and looked for, was found thanks to Ho'oponopono.

- Vanessa, Argentina

Thank you Mabel! It was worth it to come to the Seminar from Norway. It was great, very special and amazing; I regret I couldn't have more. See you in Monterrey next February! Thank you, thank you, thank you...

- Lourdes, Norway

A week after returning from your workshop in Cancun, I came back a different person. I let go and allowed God in to change my life and my partner. I wasn’t able to let him go from neither my mind nor my heart; even after all the pain he’s caused me. And today, a day after your workshop, he said “I’m leaving and I’m leaving you”.
On four occasions he threatened to leave me and Mabel I would always beg him and would cry like a little girl. I’d beg him to be patient with me, that I would change everything he wanted me to.
A week after your workshop I became ME, I was happy, and accomplished all that I want to. He left today, just now as I’m writing this message to you. It did not cause me any pain and I hope to God that it didn’t to him either… “But, how could it cause him any pain when he left happily”?
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
The only thing I did was LET GO and God did it all. This is the first night without him, in two years, and I feel happy. Thank you, Mabel. Really, thank you, thank you, thank you.
You have no idea how much I suffered. I love Ho’oponopono, love it.
I will see you in Mexico, October 19th. This works really fast and it’s very extraordinary.
Thank you, Thank you,

- Ana, Mexico
