How Ho'oponopono, an amazingly simple healing tool, can help you

The first person who told me about Ho’oponopono was my boyfriend’s mom. I don’t think she knew it was called Ho’oponopono though. I wrote the sentences down and started using them. I remember using them a couple of times when I felt stressed and I immediately felt a shift in my energy.

There have been periods that I hardly used it and periods in which I used it a lot. 
You can use Ho’oponopono in all kinds of situations. When you’re feeling stressed or anxious for example. When you’re child is driving your crazy. When you’re arguing with your husband. Any time you think of it you can use it!

I even use it in traffic sometimes! It’s amazing. When no one is moving, I do ho’oponopono and there it goes… cars start moving again. One time my boyfriend called me to tell me his car didn’t start anymore and he was waiting for help. I told him to do ho’oponopono and we did so together. And suddenly he managed to start the car! Coincidence? Maybe… but I don’t think so.

What is Ho’oponopono?

I’m guessing you’re thinking something like “What is this Ho’opono something?!” So let me tell you more. Ho’oponopono consists of saying 4 short sentences:
  I love you
  I’m sorry
  Please forgive me
  Thank you
You’re not saying this to anyone, you’re saying it to the divine. I like to think of it as saying it to my higher self. I say sorry for having created the situation I’m in. Doing it like this feels amazingly powerful for me.

It’s all about taking responsibility for everything. Yes, for everything. Taking the responsibility for everything in your life. What happens outside of you, mirrors what’s inside of you. So in a way you are responsible for everything you’re witnessing in your life. For everything you’re experiencing.

Forgive yourself

Now don’t go beating yourself up for creating bad situations. Most of the time we are not aware that we’re doing it. I mean, we wouldn’t create bad situations on purpose, right? So forgive yourself! For example by doing Ho’oponopono. Say it to yourself. I love you, I’m sorry, please forgive me, thank you. Keep repeating it until it feels lighter.

You can use Ho'oponopono in many situations, just give it a try! You can read more about it in the book Zero Limits by Joe Vitale and Ihaleakala Hew Len. I loved this book and have listened to it several times. I find it really inspiring.

Please let me know how you are using Ho’oponopono and what it’s doing for you! Leave a comment or come over to my Facebook page!
