Ho’oponopono is a very ancient Hawaiian art and practice of achieving greater clarity of purpose and living and working more effectively. It serves as a pathway to a loving, peaceful, and abundant life.
The original Hawaiians, the first people who lived in Hawaii, used to practice it.
Morrnah Simeona brought these teachings to the world and updated them for modern times. She was Dr. Ihaleakalá Hew Len’s teacher, and Dr. Ihaleakalá is my Ho’oponopono teacher.
“The main purpose of this process is to discover the Divinity within oneself. 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.”
Self I-Dentity Through Ho’oponopono
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. This allows us to reclaim our personal inner connection with love – our Divine Source – resulting in peace, harmony and freedom.
Morrnah Simeona left her updated version of this ancient Hawaiian philosophy of problem solving to mankind as a gift to be shared and practiced.
Before her 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.
Modern Day Ho’oponopono With Dr. Ihaleakalá Hew Len
Dr. Ihaleakalá is my Ho’oponopono teacher. He worked, traveled and presented with Morrnah for years. He also updated the Self I-Dentity through Ho’oponopono in order to make it even easier and more applicable to modern times.
The new process became individualized so that it could be practiced alone. However, it still works very effectively in all our family lives. What is erased from us is also erased from our families, relatives and ancestors. 90% of our problems come from our ancestors!
Ihaleakalá once told me: “If I had told you ten years ago that 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 really nobody “out there”; everything is inside of us and our memories.
I remember one afternoon Ihaleakalá returned from walking with tears in his eyes and told me: “I have just realized that all God is asking from us is to take good care of ourselves and to say “I’m sorry” as if we were little children. That is it”.
How I Started Teaching
I took my first seminar with Ihaleakalá in July 1997 in Omaha, Nebraska; that was when I invited him to come to Los Angeles and realized I had found The Easiest Way I had been looking for.
Throughout the twelve years I lived with Ihaleakalá, I traveled with him to Amsterdam, Brussels, France, England, Argentina and many places in the United States. He shared with me all the cleaning tools that would come to him during consultations, training meditations and long walks in Woodland Hills, a suburb in Los Angeles.
By the time Ihaleakalá decided to retire 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.
In November 2008, after many years of having a double career, 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. But, as always, every time I did illogical things, made non-sense decisions, but trusted, I 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. The SECRET of Ho’oponopono is applied to the change of paradigms we live in this moment.
