I personally have had many profound healing experiences with Ho’oponopono, especially right after my mother passed away. I was thinking back over the years, and had regrets that I should have called and visited her more often, but now it was too late. Thankfully I didn’t have any other regrets, but the fact that I should have been there for her more was really bothering me.
Shortly after her death, while on a long flight on an airplane, I closed my eyes and inwardly began repeating the Ho’oponopono mantras. After doing this for over an hour, I knew it was okay to stop and felt a tremendous relief! As soon as I experienced this peace, I heard my mother say, “I love you sweetheart! You did nothing wrong.” I just started to cry and knew all was well again.
What is Ho’oponopono?
Ho’oponopono is an ancient Hawaiian healing technique that encourages you to take full responsibility for everything that comes into your life. When you do this, not only are you healed on so many levels, but you also heal everything and everyone around you. The goal is to achieve a “stage of zero,” a place of stillness and peace where you allow God who is within you to do all the work. All you have to do is repeat four sentences over and over again throughout the day: “I’m sorry.” “Please forgive me.” “I love you.” And, “Thank you.”
If you have regrets for things you did, or didn’t do to a loved one, or if you find it hard to forgive the words or actions of passed loved ones, Ho’oponopono can help you free yourself.
When you think of your deceased loved one and a thought of regret comes up about him or her, simply repeat these phrases out loud or to yourself. It doesn’t matter how many times; just say them over and over until you feel better. When you say, “I’m sorry,” “Please forgive me,” you are speaking to your loved one, to yourself, and to God for whatever it is in you that allowed whatever it was that happened. Remember, it’s all about being 100% responsible for everything.
The last two statements help to raise your energy. By saying “I love you,” you will begin to feel better very quickly because these words have the highest vibration possible. As you end with the words “Thank you,” you are acknowledging that your mantras have been heard and everything about the situation is being cleansed.
Even if you don’t have any regrets with your loved ones, you can still repeat, “I love you” and “Thank you” over and over again. Just a few repetitions of these statements extend love and gratitude, and heal you and your deceased loved one as well.
Once you sense everything has cleared, you can stop saying “I’m sorry,” “Please forgive me,” and just keep repeating “I love you.” “Thank you.” Otherwise – and I found this out the hard way – you may accidentally attract situations in your life that cause you to seek forgiveness! But, repeating the latter half of the mantra will continue to bring more love and gratitude into your life.
Many blessings to you!
