If you’re not familiar with the delicious, Hawaiian heart-healing technique known as Ho’Oponopono, you should be.
It’s the simplest, yet most profound technique I know. It’s based around four key phrases — perhaps four of the hardest phrases for people to say.
1) I’m sorry.
2) Please forgive me.
3) Thank you.
4) I love you.
I have seen these four phrases used for Ho’Oponopono in every different order possible. The way it is listed here is my favorite order, but feel free to say it in a way that feels most authentic and natural for you. The important thing is that you practice saying the phrases, as every one of them is extremely powerful. I know that saying the order is not very important may seem like sacrilege to some, but with Ho’Oponopono as with ANY technique, I think following your Inner Guidance and making it your own are key to the process.
Now, I am in no way a Ho’Oponopono expert. I simply like the technique. And what I like most about it is its simplicity. I’ve created a 9-minute meditation for you that I believe encompasses the essence of this heart-connecting technique. I hope it will help you more fully embody your heart center, and assist you in healing any relationship that currently feels disconnected.
Before you do it, please take a moment to empty your mind and release any old stories you may be holding about the current distance in the relationship you want to mend. At the base of Ho’Oponopono, according to Ihaleakala Hew Len, is the concept of total responsibility — not just for your own actions, but for everybody’s. Connection, clearing and forgiveness are much more important than tiny little ego concerns like who is right and who is wrong. So, make sure you want to heal and connect with your loved one even more than you want to be right.
May your heart blossom anew with this meditation:
Love and Blessings,
