When talking about active listening, many parallels with Ho’oponopono appear in my mind. I believe that this ancestral Hawaiian art is an excellent tool precisely for this – “to listen to what God has to say to us.”
God, the Universe, or that invisible force that we carry inside, shows us what is right and perfect in our life, but if we do not become “silent,” we are preventing it from happening.
Every time we say “thank you” or “I love you,” two of Ho’oponopono’s most popular tools, we are stopping our intellect and all those negative thoughts, opinions, and conditioning that bombard us all the time in our mind, to “listen actively” and allow miracles to appear.
What do we call miracles then?
All the good that happens to us that we cannot explain how it occurred. Those magical ideas, or those perfect solutions, and those things that happen to us that we can’t explain or believe.
If you think we have come to suffer or to have a bad time, you are wrong. That is what years and years of memories, as recent as ancestral, have been programmed into our minds. That this is difficult, that the other is impossible, that a “sacrifice” is needed – everything that wants to tell you how things are or should be is definitely a memory in your subconscious mind, and Ho’oponopono is the tool I highly recommend to put an end to it once and for all and to be able to be at peace and in balance no matter what’s going on around you.
With Ho’oponopono you actively listen to what the Universe has for you and become the protagonist. It’s not about staying in your comfort zone and having everything around you fall apart without you lifting a finger; but it is about understanding that everything happens for a reason and that we must be the leader of our life flowing with what happens in the present, and not reacting so much, knowing that everything is a blessing even if it does not seem like it.
Wondering how to practice Ho’oponopono? Just repeat the trigger words for yourself, relax, and let go. This will allow Divinity to erase the memories that are replaying in your subconscious mind.
Only God knows what we are ready to release and let go of at every moment, so don’t engage with what you assume, believe, or think will happen. Practice Ho’oponopono and listen more actively. And say “thank you” to your expectations and continue on the way to balance and connection with your divine self, where you will also find your passion, your purpose, and all the abundance that comes with them.
If you’re thinking Ho’oponopono is a magic wand, yes. It is! I have traveled the world teaching this philosophy of life and I have seen with my own eyes how it has changed the lives of thousands and thousands of people.
The practice of this active listening with Ho’oponopono, of this “stopping the intellect,” must be done 24 hours a day. Moment by moment. You know that in addition to “thank you” or “I love you,” my favorite is “I let go and trust,” a tool that brings me peace during the storm.
Any tool is the key to letting go of intellectuality and becoming children again, holding God’s hand, or as I mentioned earlier, that invisible force that I assure you dwells within you.
Just let go of expectations and relax, so that this active listening works and can work miracles in your life.
