Ho’oponopono Part 1 – The Basics


Today I’d like to share with you a fabulous way to help you take on the satisfying but nevertheless challenging process of change. If you have recently lost your job or are starting a new venture on the side or have just taken the first step in opening your brand-spanking new business, welcome to the wonderful world of Ho’oponopono!

The underlying premise of Ho’oponopono is that you must take 100% responsibility for everything that’s going on in your life, no questions asked.

After all, have you ever noticed that whenever a problem arises… there you are?

This means that at some level – even unconsciously – you helped create whatever is happening, even the job layoff.

But what this also means is that, having noticed it, you can now do something about it! You can “erase” the data and memories that created this situation not only in your own life but also in the lives and ancestral lineage of every other person involved. Through Ho’oponopono you can petition Divinity – God – to clear up the mistakes of the past.

Now, at this point this may sound like complete woo-woo but stick with me.

Even if everyone else is unconscious as to the origins of the experience called “layoffs and redundancies” or __[Insert your challenge here]__, you can decide to step up to the plate and do something incredible regardless. You can be responsible and take back control.

And here’s how:

Use Ho’oponopono, the Hawaiian “cleaning” process which translates as “to make right”.

I won’t go into the entire back story right now but know that you can put it to work right now and keep in mind that this is a very quick whistle stop tour to enable you to start using the process immediately. Some of it may seem strange or counter-intuitive but stick with it.

All you need to do is think for a moment or two about how you feel about the challenge you are currently facing. Be honest with yourself. Let your feelings be what they are and then start repeating (non-stop) silently in your mind, or out loud if the mood takes you and you can do so without appearing like a weirdo, the four phrases that “activate” the Ho’oponopono process. They are:

I love you. I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

That’s it. You can say them in any order. You can just repeat “I love you” and “Thank you” if that feels appropriate to you. Just go with the inspiration! You can’t get it wrong. And if you don’t feel like it’s your “job” to clear up the mess you may currently find yourself in, just remember this tale:

There was a story I heard about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody and Nobody. There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it. Somebody got angry about that because it was Everybody’s job. Everybody thought that Anybody could do it but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn’t do it. It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done.

Let the healing start with YOU, today, right here and right now and we’ll delve into this further next week. In the meantime just keep cleaning and…
