there are four things to do/say/think. These are simple statements,
and it matters not in which order they are done. They can be spoken
aloud, written down, or whispered within.
I am so sorry.
Please forgive me.
I love you.
power rests in their simplicity. These are ideas we are familiar
with. There is nothing to learn, no special posture or place is
necessary. They will have their effect regardless of form or volume.
Only sincerity is necessary. You have to mean it.
A bloodless revolution is possible and each one of us is called to
participate. We are becoming inundated with “truths” and “revelations”
and “lies”. None of these are easy to digest. It is interesting to me
how we are often so quick to judge our own kind. Hatred is a virus and
easily transferred with our emotion.
You know better now. It is these very emotions (fear, hatred, anger)
that are harvested, and the very reason the horrors continue to be
staged and seem to be escalating. Those that would feed off of our fear
are worried; they are seeing their own end. It is coming.
We need do nothing but forgive. Love is who we are. We are called
now to “stand up” and be only that which we are. (I know this is a
commercial for a soft drink, but the message is clear and relevant to
the simplicity of revolution.)We
are One. Let’s act like it. In the days, weeks and months directly
ahead we will be further challenged to hold our ground. There is no one
else who can do this. I am seeing legions of us, “standing up” for
forgiveness, no matter what the landscape. This will change the world.
What are you waiting for? You are the One.
From American School of Laughter Yoga :
How to Practice Ho’oponopono in Four Simple Steps
Have you heard of the Hawaiian therapist who cured an entire ward of
criminally insane patients, without ever meeting any of them or spending
a moment in the same room? It’s not a joke. The therapist was Dr.
Ihaleakala Hew Len. He reviewed each of the patients’ files, and then he
healed them by healing himself. The amazing results seem like a
miracle, but then miracles do happen when you use Ho’oponopono, or Dr.
Len’s updated version called Self I-Dentity Through Ho’oponopono (SITH).
I had the pleasure of attending one of his lectures a few years ago and
started practicing Ho’oponopono immediately. The results are often
astounding. Do you need a miracle?
What you might wish to understand is how this can possibly work. How
can you heal yourself and have it heal others? How can you even heal
yourself? Why would it affect anything “out there”? The secret is there
is no such thing as “out there” – everything happens to you in your
mind. Everything you see, everything you hear, every person you meet,
you experience in your mind. You only think it’s “out there” and you
think that absolves you of responsibility. In fact it’s quite the
opposite: you are responsible for everything you think, and everything
that comes to your attention. If you watch the news, everything you hear
on the news is your responsibility. That sounds harsh, but it means
that you are also able to clear it, clean it, and through forgiveness
There are four simple steps to this method, and the order is not that
important. Repentance, Forgiveness, Gratitude and Love are the only
forces at work – but these forces have amazing power. The best part of
the updated version of Ho’oponopono is you can do it yourself, you don’t
need anyone else to be there, you don’t need anyone to hear you. You
can “say” the words in your head. The power is in the feeling and in the
willingness of the Universe to forgive and love.
Step 1: Repentance – I’M SORRY
As I mention above, you are responsible for everything in your mind,
even if it seems to be “out there.” Once you realize that, it’s very
natural to feel sorry. I know I sure do. If I hear of a tornado, I am so
full of remorse that something in my consciousness has created that
idea. I’m so very sorry that someone I know has a broken bone that I
realize I have caused. This realization can be painful, and you will
likely resist accepting responsibility for the “out there” kind of
problems until you start to practice this method on your more obvious
“in here” problems and see results. So choose something that you already
know you’ve caused for yourself? Over-weight? Addicted to nicotine,
alcohol or some other substance? Do you have anger issues? Health
problems? Start there and say you’re sorry. That’s the whole step: I’M
SORRY. Although I think it is more powerful if you say it more clearly:
“I realize that I am responsible for the (issue) in my life and I feel
terrible remorse that something in my consciousness has caused this.”
Step 2: Ask Forgiveness – PLEASE FORGIVE ME
Don’t worry about who you’re asking. Just ask! PLEASE FORGIVE ME. Say it
over and over. Mean it. Remember your remorse from step 1 as you ask to
Step 3: Gratitude – THANK YOU
Say “THANK YOU” – again it doesn’t really matter who or what you’re
thanking. Thank your body for all it does for you. Thank yourself for
being the best you can be. Thank God. Thank the Universe. Thank whatever
it was that just forgave you. Just keep saying THANK YOU.
Step 4: Love – I LOVE YOU
This can also be step 1. Say I LOVE YOU. Say it to your body, say it to
God. Say I LOVE YOU to the air you breathe, to the house that shelters
you. Say I LOVE YOU to your challenges. Say it over and over. Mean it.
Feel it. There is nothing as powerful as Love.
That’s it. The whole practice in a nutshell. Simple and amazingly effective.
