The Art of Healing With Ho’oponopono

ho'oponopono2If you’re like many people, you’re still struggling to make a difference in your life using the Law of Attraction principles or following techniques outlined in “The Secret”. You’re still searching for that perfect process that is both easy and effective…something you can practice daily with results.

Welcome to the world of Ho’oponopono.

Ho’oponopono is an ancient Hawaiian technique for solving spiritual, emotional, mental or physical problems. The use of this advanced technique of problem solving can be traced back to the original inhabitants of Hawaii some of who are fabled to have come from other galaxies.

Hoo in Hawaiian means cause and ponopono means perfection. It is the state of perfection that we came in with before the fall into the knowledge of ‘good and evil’ and it is to this state that we can return.

When a so called problem surfaces in our lives, rather than emotionally attacking the situation we need to recognize the deeper reality of why this problem surfaced in the first place and love and forgive ourselves for it. That’s the energy that heals.

This process, which has the ability to release us from past karmic ties, gives us complete freedom to develop a personal relationship with Divinity…the power within us. It is an understanding that every moment we have the ability to cleanse ourselves of error…whether in thought, word, deed or action. 

Ho’oponopono is proving to be more effective for creating lasting permanent change in the lives of those who practice it than other more popular healing techniques. In fact, Dr. Joe Vitale, the famous spiritual teacher, stated that “Ho’oponopono was beyond “The Secret.”

We can easily free our minds from past memories and restore the purity of our hearts using this ancient art to clean up repetitive issues that keep surfacing from our subconscious mind, replaying over and over.

“If we can accept that we are the sum total of all past thoughts, emotions and words, deeds and actions and that our present lives and choices are colored or shaded by this memory bank of the past, then we begin to see how a process of correcting or setting aright can change our lives, our families and our society.”
Mormah Nalamaku Simeona

Our memory banks can be our worst enemies. They harbor fear, with all it’s resident buddies…resentment, hate, anger, attachments and judgments from the past and replay them over and over. The only way to release ourselves from these tyrants is to take responsibility for them and love them.

Use Ho’oponopono during a crisis by simply asking for whatever is causing division in your thoughts to be brought to the surface to be loved, healed and released. Simply ignoring issues will not change a thing. It only buries it temporarily until the next trigger sets it off and the issue you ignored has reared its ugly head again. You must engage your conscious powers to effect healing and Ho’oponopono does this very thing.

Not only is Ho’oponopono used to heal one’s inner issues, it is also used when confronted with someone else’s seeming problem. Rather than going into judgment at these trying times, we must once again reflect into ourselves and ask to clear our own consciousness of division so that we no longer see this situation as a problem or experience division in thought in ourselves or others.

We are the problem not them. We can only change ourselves, which in turn changes the world and that is the power of Ho’oponopono.

We affect change in the world by affecting change within ourselves (taking responsibility), it’s that simple. Taking 100% responsibility for our lives removes the victim mentality and places us in a place of authentic power.

Just as the light in a room shines on everyone with the same intensity…no matter who turned it on… Ho’oponopono uses the same principle. We are all connected. We live in a holographic Universe. By affecting ourselves we affect others.

When faced with adverse conditions ask yourself “What is it in me that is causing this event to take place, this person to behave this way, this sickness to manifest?” Ho’oponopono practitioners are aware that to blame others is the surest way to make sure the problem happens again, and again and again.

It’s easy to master the basic principles of Ho’oponopono using these powerful mantras. Even a child can practice this with certainty and if taught at home and in the school systems at an early age the impact on society would be huge. Imagine…the Golden Age.

  • Dear Father: The very first thing we must do is to acknowledge our Creator, after all, only the Creator can fix the mess that we’ve created. Begin with your own personal connection to Source…whatever those feelings or words are.
  • I am sorry: The power to heal any situation lies in our willingness to take responsibility for negative conditions. Using this statement, opens the door to unity and atonement with all life.
  • Please forgive me: With absolute certainty that it has been granted, ask for forgiveness for having shut the Creator out of your life as well as forgetting the love the Creator holds for you. (that’s why you ended up in a negative state)
  • I love you: Sending these powerful words through your psyche generates an immediate feeling of contentment. Love is the greatest healing power there is and just thinking loving thoughts tunes your mind to that frequency amazingly fast.
  • I thank you: The moment you take responsibility for any issue that presents itself in your life and consciously seek a solution, you set in motion laws that guarantee a response. By saying “thank you” you are affirming that your plea has been acknowledged and needs no further action.

As with all energetic healing modalities you must not harbor expectations as to how or when the results will occur. You must allow the Universe complete freedom to act and choose whatever method is needed. Your only job is to act in accordance with Ho’oponopono mantras and have the Faith to know that it is done.

    Hi Stephanie,
    Thankyou for telling me more about hooponopono. I have heard of it before but never really got into it. Your post has inspired me to try it again. 🙂

    I am open to using anything that is effective and can further my own healing and development.

    Hi Stephanie..

    I’ve used this mantra both personally and with my Reiki Clients in their sessions and I have to say, that it is amazing and brings beautiful insight! Thank you for the reminder.

  • Amy says:

    This is a very good article! Thank you so much for posting it. I agree- what the point is of this process is to acknowledge responsibility for our misdeeds. This is very important- I also think the two most important things in life are to maintain your connection to God/Source and accept personal responsibility for your mistakes.


  • Great post. I learned to effectively apply principles of law of attraction and received positive results except when it came to money so realized that I must have blocks within me pertaining to money. That lead me to seek a solution and was introduced to Morrnah Simeona and ho’oponopono. I took her Basic I through III trainings within weeks of our meeting and have never done anything else since it was so effective.

    I have gifts of seeing the subconscious, past life and ancestral programming that sabotage life experiences. Although, I don’t use the above 4 phrases specifically as part of my practice, I open a ho’oponopono process as the spiritual healing tool to help my clients let go of the above that I identify to help restore them to peace, balance, love, joy and abundance, which should be our natural state.

    I highly recommend people learn ho’oponopono as it is the most comprehensive tool I have experienced. It can change the future as well as the world.

    This mantra works for me.
    If only we would not EXCLUDE our Beloved Divine, but instead INCLUDE this most powerful Divine Energy in ALL of our daily decisions, our lives would run much more smoothly. Of course we do not. We sometimes believe that the best advice comes from other sources. We decide that we can handle life’s challenges on our own, and that is where we create drama for ourselves. Thank you for the clear explanation of this magnificent life tool. Thank you for your insights. I appreciate you.

  • Stephanie,

    This is such a simple yet powerful way to create deep understanding and connection.
    I want to share with you a recent blog post of my own in which I cited Ho-oponopono for use with couples.

  • Samuel Ola Ojo says:

    Thank you for the post. I’ve never heard Hoo’ponopono. From the little I read this morning, it has spoken to my mind and I want to be practising the principle everyday.

  • A. H. Shaikh says:

    Great Insight.

    Is this all one have to do to perform / practice ho’oponopono? If not, Could you please let me know the detailed step by step procedure.

  • hi, i found out about this several years ago through the work of dr. joe vitale and the work he did with dr. len (can’t spell his last name) who helped pioneer it at a psychiatric hospital. it is such a simple process on the surface yet goes so deeply to the heart of all of our issues. thank you for bringing it back to the forefront for this year and the shift so that we may have the opportunity to use this wonderful healing gift.

  • Lee says:

    I have heard of it before from Joe Vitale and others. But I really like this particular explanation. Also that it starts with “Dear Father”. that does make it more personal than just saying those 4 sentences without thinking about what they really. I have not practiced it much. but I will make an effort to start again because I do like approach. Thank you for posting this

  • su says:

  • Ann-Marie says:

    This is a great post. Have been practicing this technique for the last couple of months and the results have been astounding.

  • Ben says:

    After this I actually red Joe Vitale’s book. I also tried some hooponopono and I realized my mind went very quiet. I’ve been doing it a little since and i’m not sure of the effect in my world yet but i’m going to keep working on it.

  • Michele says:

    Ho’o ponopono is not my personal favorite healing tool as far as effectiveness. So here is the story behind why I once hated it and more importantly why it has now become right up there, as one of the best tools I know.

    It is important to know that I have always been prone to guilt and also always thought I was the cause of everything that went on around me. This is not the same as realizing that my energies created the situation, as I now understand.

    When I first heard of Ho’o ponopono I went all out. I also ended up in a HUGE depression thinking everything was my fault and that there was just so much to change. In order to save myself from the hole I was in I had to kick the technique out the door.

    Fast forward about 4 years. I went to an event a couple of months ago that took us through the technique again. I felt the great change in me and was open again to looking at the technique. I now use Ho’o ponopono to address when I feel some intense feelings and reactions and then I use my favorite tool, The Emotion Code, to clean up anything left.

    Here’s why I can now recognize it. When I do Ho’o ponopono I don’t change them. They can still have their behavior and either they don’t do it around me or my response is different. The first time, I was caught up in the idea that I could change them and the world by changing me. Now, I see that I can only change my reactions and what I vibrate with. The more I change the less those things show up in my life, or in other words my world. The more society participates in these changes is when massive society change can happen.

    Maybe other people don’t get caught up in the idea that we can change them by changing us. I wanted to share my experience in case someone reading this was heading down my path. The Law of Attraction is simply like attracts like. Any technique that goes deep enough to change our vibration will cause us to attract a different experience. Ho’o ponopono is one of the few techniques that I know of that really do go deep enough. I know of a few but only a couple that do it fast like Ho’o ponopono and The Emotion Code do.

    Stepping off the soap box….
