Ho’oponopono

Ho’oponopono, a Huna healing technique, is hard to pronounce.  I’ve heard two different ways to pronounce it.
The first is to just break it down in to syllables.  Ho- oh-po-no-po-no.
The other is to run the first part together to get Hoo-po-no-po-no.

Regardless of how you pronounce it, it still refers to an ancient healing technique used by the shamans of Hawaii.  I’m sure if any Hawaiian language purists are reading this they’ll probably get a bit pissed.  If so, please feel free to leave a comment with a better way to teach the pronunciation of this word.

There are various ways of performing this technique, but the one that is the focus of this blog is about healing your heart through forgiveness and, if necessary, cutting the aka cord that connects you with that person and reattaching it to yourself.
Aka is an ethereal substance.

Before you begin this process you need to ask yourself a couple of questions.

  1. Is it OK to forgive this person (or event)?
  2. Is it OK for you to heal your heart to move on with your life?

If you answered “yes” to both questions, proceed with the meditation.

If you’re new to meditation I recommend a slow, deep breathing exercise known as the Complete Breath which is here on this blog.  For those of you who are experienced in meditation… as you were.

Imagine yourself standing center stage in an empty auditorium.  A lone spotlight shines down upon you.  Up above your head is an infinite source of Healing and Love.  Allow it to pour down in to your head and fill up your entire body until it comes flowing out through the top of your head and washes over your body.

As you look out in to the empty auditorium you’ll see an aka cord, or perhaps many, going out in to the dark theater.  You will instinctively know which one to give a little tug on to bring whatever it is you wish to bring back in to alignment with yourself.  For the rest of this blog let’s just say it’s a person.

With this person now in front of you, forgive them for any pain or suffering they have caused you.  Then ask them to forgive you for any unnecessary pain or suffering you have caused them.
This can take as long as you feel is necessary.

At this point of the meditation, if you feel it necessary, cut the aka cord connecting the two of you and connect it back to your heart.  I personally recommend doing this if that person is no longer in your life.  If he/she is still in your life, make the judgement call for yourself.  If you decide not to at this point in time, you can always come back later and do it then if you feel it’s necessary.

Now send this person back in to the  darkened theater.  Once he/she has complete disappeared, say a word or a short phrase so that you know it is complete.  I use “it is done” to let the finality of it sink in faster.  Use whatever you feel works best for you.

Now that you are armed with this healing technique, put it to use as often as you desire.  Like almost everything in this blog, you can tweak it a little bit to suit your needs.
