SELF CARE - USING THE HO'OPONOPONO TECHNIQUE
Hoʻoponopono is a Hawaiian practice of reconciliation and forgiveness. The Hawaiian word translates into English simply as correction. The word “ho’o” means “cause” in Hawaiian, while “ponopono” means “perfection”, The term “ho’oponopono” can be translated as “correct a mistake” or “make it right”.
In Hawaii many natives once believed that a person's errors could cause illness such as anger and guilt through low vibrational consciousness. The therapy that counters this sickness is confession. Secrecy is what gives power to the illness, and when secrecy is confessed, it no longer holds power over the person. Hoʻoponopono corrects, restores and maintains healthy relationships among family, friends, and even within yourself.
How the Ho'oponopono technique is applied in the session:
The process of Ho'oponopono typically is applied if the client has unresolved emotions stirring up in the session. Feelings of unresolved trauma such as anger and sadness may be felt by the healer or the client. The client will identify the part of the body with that specific emotion and will intuitively know who it relates to. Then, using the Ho'oponopono Technique, the patient says the prayer, and also feels the emotions and validates them. Feelings are acknowledged, then confession, repentance, and forgiveness take place. Everyone releases each other, letting go. It is a powerful tool for purifying one’s body, and getting rid of bad memories or feelings that won’t leave the mind.
How the technique works:
The technique assumes that everything we know as our “reality” is experienced individually by our own mind. What you feel, hear, and see is all influenced by your inner self. Everything around you involves your participation, as you are responsible for what you think and feel. Have you noticed that we ourselves can often be our worst enemies? This is because each thought can activate a mechanism that recreates a (albeit illusory) world of problems. The main purpose of ho’oponopono is to seek the cure of these problems through forgiveness. Not necessarily the forgiveness of others, but that of oneself. This is done with the understanding that what happens to you doesn’t matter as much as what you do after these events.
The traditional version of ho’oponopono consists of four main phrases:
Please forgive me
I love you
They all seek to guide the practitioner through these four sentimental steps: repentance, forgiveness, love, and gratitude.
Simply repeating these words can release blockages, negative memories, and traumas from this lifetime and past lifetimes and break all karmic contracts in your energy field. Applying the Ho’oponopono technique will assist in healing your errors so that you can take more control over your own body and life. In short, it can be said that ho’oponopono is a problem-solving process that must happen entirely within you.
The advantages of frequent ho’oponopono practice are numerous, and they are found in all fields of life. The main ones are:
Regeneration of cellular memories: Ho’oponopono works as a cleanser, neutralizing memories of suffering and uncomfortable sensations.
Protagonism of life itself: At first, the idea of responsibility and obligation to answer for one’s actions may seem very rigid, but over time, you may be surprised at how independent and proactive you are. By abandoning the sense of powerlessness linked to the idea that suffering is caused only by external and uncontrollable factors, it is possible to transform your beliefs and not have a victimistic stance, increasing the sense of personal power.
Emotional stability: With the release of negative energies, emotional balance is privileged as the blocks of self-realization, happiness and fulfillment disappear, making room for new insights and inner peace. In addition, the ho’oponopono practitioner gains the freedom not to obey negative memories. This can make you a calmer, more positive person in the face of adversity and problems in your path.
Healthier Relationships: Whenever we engage in some misunderstanding or conflict, we tend to think that only the other party is wrong. Ho’oponopono helps to deconstruct this passive posture so that the practitioner can understand that he is also part of the problem, and when he changes, his relationships change (for the better, of course!).
