Ho’oponopono is known as an ancient Hawaiian art of problem-solving, which focuses on taking 100% responsibility to improve all aspects of life, based on the fact that we create and attract everything, and therefore, we can change everything. It is a new way of thinking, a life practice where the individuals are responsible for what happens around them, having the possibility to heal from within and improve their life experience, attracting inner peace no matter what is happening on the “outside.”
Currently, Ho’oponopono has proven to be a quite versatile philosophy of thought, which can bring immediate benefits if done consistently. Therefore, discover everything you need to know to practice Ho’oponopono.
Steps to practice Ho'oponopono correctly
If we talk about the classic Ho’oponopono (the one which was practiced in ancient times in Hawaii), you will find that this practice required a Kahuna to organize group meetings in order to alleviate all the negative feelings that surrounded the members of the tribe. This spiritual leader connected all the people who were present with the universe to promote an environment of forgiveness and reconciliation, thus achieving that bad thoughts and memories were erased and corrected.
Today, there is no need for a Kahuna as an intermediary between you and the universe, since Morrnah Simeona has channeled an update of the technique, many years ago. Now you can do it yourself, using very easy and effective Ho’oponopono tools that help you connect with God (or the Universe). Let go of negative thoughts of the past, let yourself be guided, and live more in the present moment.
Although there are many steps on the Internet to practice Ho’oponopono, you need to know that the main thing is to repeat the Ho’oponopono trigger words mentally as much as you can, always following your own inspiration. However, in general, these tips could represent a good habit to practice:
- Find a time of day when you can relax, but if you can’t, don’t look for any kind of excuse not to practice. We always practice Ho’oponopono (24-7), when things “are bad” and when “they are good” too. Don’t wait for “problems” to appear to do it. We never know what we have avoided or what could have been much harder. We never know what we are cleaning (erasing) with.
- When worries or negative thoughts come up, remember to mentally say “thank you” or “I love you” to them. Just focus on your practice. God knows why things happen. Trust, that you are not alone and that everything is perfect. Be aware that you create with your thoughts, and you practice Ho’oponopono to release and erase them, and to make room for what is correct and perfect to happen effortlessly. We do it to avoid reacting and engaging so that we can be at peace no matter what is going on.
- Ask for forgiveness for the negative thoughts, feelings, emotions, and memories that you have accumulated in your subconscious mind from the beginning of creation. You are responsible, not guilty. Become an observer. Don’t engage, let go. Repeat “thank you” or “I love you” mentally. Let go of judgments and return to the humility and innocence of a child. Through your inner child, you will be able to see yourself without guilt, with love and understanding that everything is possible.
- Begin to change your perspective, with Ho’oponopono cleaning, you will be able to maintain control over your subconscious mind and erase the memories that are repeated there. Choose the Ho’oponopono trigger words that come to you through your inspiration and just focus on letting go and trusting.
- Stay alert to recognize that what we call “problems” are nothing but your perception of what is happening around you. Have confidence that everything that happens is correct and perfect even though it may not seem like it; and that there truly is a blessing behind every challenge. Ho’oponopono can set you free.
The key is consistency and perseverance. You can mentally repeat the Ho’oponopono trigger words all day, all night, as many times as you can remember.
