A year ago, I wrote a post about the ancient Hawaiian energy clearing practice known as Ho’oponopono. In that post, I shared my personal experiences, how I had heard about it, and a 90 minute interview with Dr. Hew Len (broken up into 9-10 min segments on YouTube).
Several people have privately mentioned that they have a hard time with this practice, especially the part about asking for forgiveness.
The whole forgiveness conversation is complicated as, technically, you are asking yourself for forgiveness, not anyone else or anyone outside of you. I know that is a complicated concept for many of us, so I recommend watching the videos with Dr. Hew Len to help you understand the concept much better.
However, in response to the forgiveness comments, I have told others that I once followed Dr. Joe Vitale’s suggestion to walk around for a week silently saying to yourself, “I’m sorry. Please forgive me. I love you. Thank you.” as a way to generally clear any blocks. Within just a few days of this practice, I started manifesting experiences where I needed to apologize!!! Yes, I consciously realized the connection when I found myself having to say, “I’m sorry. Please forgive me. ” YIKES!!! I stopped that practice pretty darn quick.
It also showed me how powerful our energy is in attracting what we speak and feel! These days, I might only say, “I’m sorry. Please forgive me.” ONCE, and then focus all my attention on “I love you. Thank you.” I’d much rather be manifesting reasons to say THAT to others! 😉
Anyway, I just came across a video interview (below) where Aunty Mahealani explains the Aloha Spirit and her take on Ho’oponopono. I must say, I like what she is saying and it resonates for me on many levels. I invite you to watch this video and see if Aunty’s interpretation feels better for you, too.
