The first condition that must be met to do Ho’oponopono is to trust yourself and commit fully to constant practice. In this way, you will not be wasting time and you will be the change that your life needs. When you let go and trust, Ho’oponopono makes the magic happen.
It may be that on the internet you read that this meditation seeks more introspection than the actual fact of solving what happens to you and that you think that it is doing nothing. The truth is that we do not practice Ho’oponopono for a specific reason or a specific circumstance, we do it to be at peace no matter what is happening around us.
Previous considerations to do Ho'oponopono
Before starting to mention the steps to do Ho’oponopono correctly, it is necessary to mention the real meaning of Ho’oponopono and what this kind of meditation aims to achieve.
For those who don’t know, Ho’oponopono is an ancient Hawaiian art of problem-solving that focuses on taking 100% responsibility for what happens in our lives. Ho’oponopono brings us to the present, the only place from which the perfect things come into our lives, effortlessly.
The word Ho’oponopono means “how to correct an error” – considering that everything that happens in our lives is memories (errors) from the past. Many from other lifetimes and/or from ancestors.
The practice of Ho’oponopono is based on what are known as trigger words and phrases that act as passwords and help us release and surrender to Divinity so that those memories that are replaying in our subconscious, can be erased. We have accumulated a lot since our creation. Many judgments, negative thoughts, beliefs, and conditioning, and this practice allows us to free ourselves from them.
The famous phrase I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. I love you, circulates on the Internet as the backbone of Ho’oponopono, but it is not necessarily so. If it resonates with you and you feel it works for you, you can use it, just as much as any of the others. But you can also just repeat thank you or I love you (even if you don’t mean it or feel it).
Other Ho’oponopono trigger words you may come across are:
- Emerald Green
- Flor de Lis
- Ice blue
- Light Switch
Another thing that you also have to take into account about Ho’oponopono before starting its practice is that it is a meditation that seeks to become a habit in your life. It should be done like breathing. We practice Ho’oponopono as many times as we can and remember since everything that happens in our lives is a memory and we never know what we could be erasing and co-creating.
Steps to do Ho'oponopono
With the aforementioned, we can share some steps or recommendations to do Ho’oponopono:
- You don’t have to be in any particular place and nothing special has to be going on. We practice Ho’oponopono always, even when we think we don’t have any “problem.”
- Mentally repeat the trigger words that resonate with you. You don’t have to choose one for a particular reason or understand its meaning. Ho’oponopono is not for the intellect. It is your spiritual work. It works with your subconscious mind (your inner child.)
- Drop expectations! Put aside what you think should happen in your life or when you think should happen. Only God (or the Universe) knows what is right and perfect for you.
- What is erased from you, is erased from your family, relatives, and ancestors. Ho’oponopono is the best way to help others. With Ho’oponopono we take 100% responsibility for what happens in our lives. When you change, everything changes.
- Take a deep breath and then calmly accept 100% responsibility for your actions, Just remember that we are talking about responsibility and not guilt. If we can create it, we can change it – and from there everything is possible. Take back your freedom.
If you are consistent with your Ho’oponopono meditation and really let go and trust, you will find the answers you seek and your life will change completely. Ho’oponopono is The Easiest Way! Don’t wait any longer to find out.
Put your expectations aside. Remember that some miracles don’t seem like miracles at first.
