Ho'oponopono - The Hawaiian Prayer of Forgiveness : Mystic Musings from the Zen Room

Ho'oponopono - The Hawaiian Prayer of Forgiveness

by Valerie O'Brien on 06/12/15

This is a beautiful technique that can do wonders in relationships. It repairs the relationship for the highest good. This can also be used to heal many different types of grievances that one carries in their heart and may be having a hard time letting go of.

We often find it difficult to forgive people who have hurt us. It is important to release anger, resentment, hurt and unforgiveness...because this can block you from receiving.

*first list all the names of the people or situations you have problems forgiving. Include even those who have remotely irritated you. Include also everyone you have hurt in this life or past lives and you can include future lives as well. You can call them "Unknown".

Go through each of the names, mentally hold an image of the person in your mind and say...

"Ho'oponopono__________"(person's name)

**I Am Sorry

**Please Forgive Me

**I Love You

**Thank-you!

Repeat this 3x with each person and each time you say thank-you...exhale from your mouth as though you were releasing that person and the grievance you had towards them. Finish the entire list and once you are done...your forgiveness session is done! You will feel lighter and more open to receiving the love and abundance that the universe has to offer and you no longer will be carrying that heavy feeling inside your heart! A true state of gratitude and compassion!

Blessings of a Lightened Heart...Val

OUR DEEPEST FEAR...written by Marianne Williamson in "A Return to Love"

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.       It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? 
Actually, who are you not to be? 
You are a child of God/Divine Light. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure about you. We were born to manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It's not just in some of us: it's in everyone.
And, as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

​**This is one of my very favorite quotes written by a very gifted woman...if you are not familiar with Marianne Williamson...you may just want to explore her work...you won't be sorry you did! In light & love, Val
