Many underestimate the great power that a word has in everyday life. Especially, that sometimes we speak carelessly without taking into account that we attract with our thoughts and words, and we condition ourselves. Ho’oponopono is one of the most important and popular philosophies of life in the world, and it is intended to improve your relationship with yourself, and consequently with your family, friends, bosses, employees, and ancestors.
Ho’oponopono has a series of simple phrases but with great power that will help you to reach that state of peace of mind and happiness, no matter what is happening around you.
The best phrases used in Ho'oponopono
Different trigger phrases are indeed used in Ho’oponopono, there is one phrase in particular that has been very widespread and that we inevitably need to mention. That phrase is: “I am sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. I love you.”
All of Ho’oponopono’s trigger words work, but they work best when you do it without expectation and without trying to understand the process, just letting go and trusting. The phrase “ I am sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. I love you” is not nearly the only way to practice Ho’oponopono. However, it is the phrase with which Ho’oponopono became popular. Ho’oponopono can be as easy as mentally repeating only “Thank you” or “I love you,” or the trigger word that at that moment comes to you from inspiration.
Practicing Ho'oponopono involves some principles or bases:
- Accept 100% responsibility: please know that you are not guilty but responsible for everything that happens in your life. With our thoughts and with our words we attract what is happening. If we react (blame and complain) instead of erasing the memories, we end up repeating the memories even more in our subconscious minds. There is no Ho’oponopono without taking responsibility: “I’m sorry, for whatever is in me that created this.”
- Let go instead of reacting. Don’t get hooked on what’s happening or what people tell you. We bring many memories of our ancestors and also from our past lives. We should walk like children, held solely by the hand of God (or the Universe, or that greater force that knows better.)
- Trust that everything that happens is right and perfect, even though sometimes it may not seem like it. Ho’oponopono is the easiest way, but in order for God or the Universe to act, we have to give permission. How do we do it? As mentioned above: taking 100% responsibility, and repeating the trigger words mentally.
- Self-love. You are (or should be) the most important thing you have. To practice Ho’oponopono is to be yourself and to put yourself first. Your goal is to be happy and at peace at all times and believe in your own talents and natural gifts. Only by loving ourselves and being happy can we also have healthy bonds and relationships.
- Allowed your own inspiration, because as we learn in the seminars, Ho’oponopono is also about getting your own tools from your inspiration. To let go and trust is to let go of your thoughts and let inspiration into your life.
Ho’oponopono could be practiced in a quiet environment where peace and comfort reign and also in a place of chaos, because the practice must be done all the time (memories play all the time.) Don’t think we practice Ho’oponopono only when “we have a problem.” We practice Ho’oponopono always – because we never know what we may be avoiding.
Practice and regain your true identity and power. What are you waiting for?
