Ho’oponopono is an ancient and powerful Hawaiian prayer used for healing and clearing up the energetic blockages posing obstructions in one way or another in your life. It is based on the premise that whatever happens in your reality is a result of your thoughts, emotions, and actions, rather than blaming any external force, or another person for what you are going through. It works to set you free from any painful memories.
The prayer is simple, but magical. Here is how it goes:
I am sorry
Please forgive me
I love you
Although the prayer sounds too simple, it works esoterically and powerfully. This prayer may be addressed to anyone – to a particular person, to yourself, or even to the Universe or the Divine Power, whichever you believe in. Although originally used to restore harmony in relationships, it can be used to clear up blockages in any situation, and any kind of issues including career, finance and health. When you get liberated of the negative memories and emotions, you automatically vibrate higher because that is our true nature. So you naturally align to the frequency of receiving more blessings and gifts which avalanche towards you since you created the space for that.
Here is how you may use it to manage any kind of issue.
- Put up the situation. List all the emotions that well up when you think of that situation – fear, anger, nervous, rejected, panic, lonely, grief, whatever. Remember, you have to list them out without being judgemental and without resisting them.
- Now state
I am sorry. Please forgive me.
Oh Universe, I am sorry for not being aware of what it is in my consciousness that brought about the emotions (you listed above). I ask for pardon and request you to clear up all the crap accrued in my being and causing suffering.
I thank you from the core of my soul for clearing up all the emotions, thoughts and actions that no longer serve me in any way. Thank you for empowering me and setting me free of the past.
I love you
I love you because you are my Source and I am not apart from you.
When you practice the above prayer with the understanding and awareness it requires, it changes your life for better. It empowers you to attract the things you truly appreciate and wish to manifest. We have often heard that we are divine beings undergoing the human experience, but as we continue to carry the burden of negative emotions, we keep manifesting the undesirable experiences.
The storm before the calm
When you begin cleaning with Ho’oponopono, all the negative emotions start surfacing before it can be released from your being. So many a times, the person gives up on the process, not knowing that it is completely normal for this ‘healing crisis’ or ‘catharsis’ to happen. You need to stick to the process and have faith in it and if you do, you will be able to reap the incredible benefits of the process. So don’t give up when the storm comes because it is to be followed by the calm that is much deeper. And if you are lucky, or if you are already pursuing healing practices, you may not experience the huge surge of negative emotions. It varies for different individuals. Nevertheless, as you clear the crap, you create the new reality you desire.
Here is wishing you abundance and prosperity at all the levels as you Ho’oponopono.
Love and Light
