What is Ho'oponopono?
Ho’oponopono is a problem-solving philosophy of the ancient Hawaiians. My mentor Dr. Ihaleakalá Hew Len believes that these were the first who inhabited Hawaii. The meaning of Ho’oponopono is to amend or correct an error. According to this philosophy, the problems that appear in our lives come from a thought, a memory, a running program (an error),and they appear in order to give us an opportunity to let it go, clean it and erase it. It shows us how to erase our problems by giving permission to the part of us that really knows, so it can amend, correct, and make perfect.
“Clean, erase, and find your own PeacePassionHappiness
Where? Within yourself”
Morrnah Nalamaku Simeona (May 19, 1913 – February 11, 1992) was the creator of Self-I-Dentity through Ho’oponopono. She was recognized as a Kahuna Iapa’au (healer) in Hawaii and honored by the State of Hawaii as a Living Treasure in 1983.
Morrnah described Ho’oponopono as 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 said.
Morrnah left her updated version of this ancient Hawaiian philosophy of problem solving to mankind as a gift to be shared and practiced.
Before that version, the way to practice Ho’oponopono was with the whole family present. Nobody could be absent. There was a moderator and each member had the chance to ask forgiveness from the others. 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 not be simple.
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. I traveled with Ihaleakalá to many other countries, he teached and attended as a student, at the first Ho’oponopono training in Ireland, where I presented with Mary Koehler. By the time Ihaleakalá decided to retire in 2002, I felt in my heart, for the first time, that I could teach Ho’oponopono. I asked the Foundation of I, Inc. 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 (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.
