How to use Ho' Oponopono to heal and clean problems There is a profuse amount of information on the Internet about Ho'oponopono. If you are not at all familiar with Ho'oponopono I need to clarify some very important points: Ho'oponopono is not a religion and never will become one. With Ho'oponopono there are no teachers, gurus or high priests or middle men. Ho'oponopono practitioners know that the Creator is the only teacher there is. Indeed, there are those who are more experienced in the practice of Ho'oponopono, but they are regarded in the same way you would regard an older brother or sister. Ho'oponopono is a tool for atonement, for correcting errors, erasing the effects of past actions and memories that cause havoc and grief in our lives, the lives of others and on mother nature as a whole. Anyone can practise Ho'oponopono--essentially you are seeking a dialogue with the Creator. However, before you proceed further you will need to be comfortable with the following fundamental concepts of Ho'oponopono. When faced with any adverse situation, the Ho'oponopono practitioner will immediately ask "What is it in me that is causing this event to take place, this person to behave this way, this sickness to manifest? etc". Ho'oponopono practitioners know that blaming others is a sure way for making sure of the recurrence of a problem. If you cannot get past the habit of blame, I suggest you do not use these meditations. Rather use the breathing exercises and other chants. If you can pass through this major ego generated hurdle, I promise you that you will absolutely love Ho'oponopono--not only, you will witness miracles in your life and the lives of others. Those who follow and practise religions of love will quickly recognise that the message of Ho'oponopono is not at all new. Kabbalah has been teaching these very same principles since the times of the prophet Abraham. The recent scriptures, the Buddhist principles of love for all creation are living embodiment of the Kabbalah principles. So, there is really nothing new under the sun--just more and more advanced perceptions of eternal truths. Recent developments such as Quantum Physics and the principles taught by Source Healing are offering new and exciting interpretations of the future of the human race. They point to a Higher Intelligence that has a very clear and well planned future for the human race -- the emergence of a Super Race being the first step of this plan. Did you pass through the first hurdle? Congratulations! All that needs to happen now is for you to practise the first meditation and mantra. That's the second hurdle. All of my Ho'oponopono meditations and chants include the Ho'oponopono Mantra. Dear Father: Here we acknowledge the Creator who gives Unconditional Love. If you believe that you are the result of an explosion or worse still that you created yourself, you are going to have a lot of trouble with this one. The word Father means "Giver Of Life" and I am sure you realise that it has nothing to do with bearded patriarchs. Addressing the Creator is fundamental to this process, since only the Creator can fix the mess that we (and our ancestors) have created. I am sorry This statement opens the door to atonement. The moment you take responsibility for any negative manifestation you experience or witness you also create an opportunity for healing. The apology is not directed to the Creator. The Creator is Spirit and does not need nor care about apologies. The apology is an acknowledgement that we are sorry for whatever it is that we (or our ancestors before us) have done to cause the adverse circumstance to take place. There is no need to grovel, just a simple "I am sorry" will do. Please forgive me We are asking for forgiveness for having forgotten how much the Creator loves us. We are asking for forgiveness for having shut out the Creator from our lives and missing out on all the wonderful experiences that we could have had. We ask for forgiveness with the absolute certainty that it has already been granted. The Creator is Spirit and is Unconditional Love, incapable of experiencing feelings of anger, resentment and all the other ego related neurotic behaviours that afflict humans. It is important to note here that Ho'oponopono practitioners never have to forgive anyone, since they realise that all wrongdoing is the result of their own wrong action or memories--past or present. I love you When Jesus was asked "which is the greatest commandments of them all" he surprised everyone (typical) and stated "You shall love the Lord Your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind." Love is a great healing power. Sending the Creator an SMS of love will reverberate through your psyche and generate an immediate feeling of well being. Once again being pure Spirit, the Creator, does not need your love, but the very act of thinking loving thoughts will tune your mind to that frequency with remarkable and immediate results. And I thank you As stated earlier, whatever your petition or concern, the moment you take responsibility for its occurrence and seek a way out--you are guaranteed a response. Almost invariably the response will never be what you expect (or in some cases want)--but what you need to start the process of healing or reconstruction. Your "thank you" is the acknowledgement that your petition has been heard and acted upon--that is all.
