Ho´oponopono – Hawaiin Prayer


Ho’oponopono is an ancient Hawaiian prayer/mantra used for healing, transformation and increased inner-peace and self-love. It’s a simple powerful way to bring healing and forgiveness into your life. It seeks to bring harmony, love and balance into relationships. It was traditionally used to heal relationships between two or more people. Each person would say the Ho’oponopono mantra to the other. But it is also a powerful way to heal the relationship you have with yourself, to send out the intention a relationship with another heal, and to clear the energy of past hurts and traumas.

Hawaiin therapist, psychologist and shamanic practitioner Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len cured an entire ward of criminally insane patients without ever meeting any of them or spending a time with them. He reviewed each of the patients’ files, and then he healed them by healing himself.

No one wanted the job I did with the criminally insane. They were averaging about one psychologist a month. But I got asked. We had about 25-30 people. Half of them would be in shackles at the ankles or the wrists because they were dangerous. They could either kick you or slam you. Everyone would walk with their back toward the wall so that they wouldn’t get struck. They had no family visits. No one could leave the building. A year and a half later there was none of that. There were people going out on bus rides. Nobody in shackles. The level of medication dropped. What did I do?  I worked on myself. I took 100% responsibility. – Dr Hew Len, Shamanic Wisdomkeepers

​In Hawaiian culture it is believed that withholding forgiveness leads to disease and disharmony. In many ways this prayer loosely translates as “to make right again.”

You can heal yourself and have it heal others!

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 change it.

Repeat this prayer/mantra in your mind, the order is not important, and the cleaning process happens. You can clean life situations, places, relationships and financial situations. When something comes to your awareness – you accept 100% responsibility for that and repeat the cleaning process. No attachments. Divinity does the rest.

The power is in the feeling and in the willingness of the Universe to forgive and love. Repentance, Forgiveness, Gratitude and Love – these forces have incredible power.

Step 1: Repentance – I´m sorry

Step 2: Ask forgiveness – Please forgive me

Step 3: Gratitude – Thank you

Step 4: Love – I love you
