We were born with the unlimited potential to intentionally create (use the law of attraction) to manifest all of our heart's desires. Together, as Conscious Leaders guided by the Divine, we have the Mind Power necessary to co-create a sustainable, harmonious, peaceful, and prosperous world. And, we can do this while also attracting and creating a passionate, loving, rich, healthy life with all of our personal dreams fulfilled.
Q: I’m having some challenges at work…. power struggles, employers refusing to pay for my travel expenses, technical malfunctions with equipment in the field, missed or poor communication on my part and theirs etc. I had good intentions on providing status updates but then even the phone lines kept disconnecting on us and then I become sick with the flu. Looking at the way everything seems to be going wrong, I’ve become more aware of the fact that I have had a lot of resistance to this project from the beginning. And, I also recognize that I have a belief that I am not ‘good at field work’ due to some past negative experiences. Now, I’m afraid I’m sabotaging this opportunity and they will think I’m unprofessional. I’m not sure what I’m asking but I want to first, get healthy and second make sure I communicate and fulfill my responsibilities next week. Do you have any suggestions?
A: Sometimes the fastest way to overcome resistance is through directly and intentionally applying
I’ve never spoken of Ho’oponopono and I’m by no stretch of the imagination an expert on the history or practice. However, a friend introduced me a few years ago to this Ancient Hawaiian Healing method. I have combined it personally with some quick EFT and find it to be incredibly healing. The basic premise is one of atonement (At-One-ment with the Divine) through the process of personally accepting full responsibility for the situation, sending forth love and compassion, forgiveness (both given and requested) and gratitude.
When used consistently, the technique is not only effective but transformative! In fact, used often and persistently Ho’oponopono can heal not only ALL of our personal limiting beliefs and self-limiting behaviors but can heal our world. Yes, this is a big statement. However, can anyone argue that the energy of love is transformative? As we learn to send forth this evolutionary energy towards not only our personal situation but every defective and dysfunctional social/environmental issue that we now face, the result will be nothing short of global healing. When this happens we will witness the arrival of a more compassionate, loving, honoring, and sustainable world and the Universal Human.
But… back to healing our ‘own stuff’!
There are 4 Ho’oponopono statements:
The Practice: Hold the situation in your mind and repeat these statements over and over again.
“What do you mean hold it in my mind? But, how do I hold it in my mind? Which part of the situation do I hold? What does hold it in my mind actually mean? What do I do if my mind wanders? Who am I saying these words to?”
Unfortunately, the perfectionist’s pattern of rejecting something because either it’s too simple, or we are afraid we will get it wrong, don’t fully understand, or because we have a few unanswered questions will prevent some of you from giving this a try.
Not today!!! Allow me to break it down for you into simple bite-sized steps that you can use, now. AND, once you ‘get’ the process, allow yourself to experiment! Cut out some of the steps I define below and just SEE if you can send forth the healing prayer into any situation more effortlessly.
The more you use the healing instant meditation of Ho’oponopono the easier and more effective (and healing) it will become for you.
To spell it out, holding the situation in your mind might look like:
o “Work is very stressful and I’m afraid I’m not good enough. I have made some mistakes in the past and I feel as though I can’t prove myself. I’m afraid I may get fired, reprimanded, or thought of as unprofessional and incompetent.”
- What’s the worst thing this says about me? (Tip: This is the fastest way I know to instantly find our core limiting beliefs.)
o “I’m a loser. I can’t do anything right. I’m lazy, incompetent, and unprofessional. I’m worthless. I don’t deserve a second chance. I don’t deserve success. I’m a failure. I sabotage myself.”
- Hold these thoughts/feelings of the above in your mind and say the words:
“Hold’ means whatever it means for you. For visual learners, this may be visually seeing yourself in the work situation and having these self-limiting sabotaging thoughts. For auditory learners, this may mean hearing the arguments in your head and for kinesthetic learners you may just feel the situation.
Whatever ‘hold’ means for you, allow this to be perfect for YOU. Then, with solid intention say, “I love you. I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.”
The primary intention is to allow yourself to unify with the event, situation, person, place, or thing; to join in such a way as to accept personal responsibility for the creation of this circumstance. When you employ Ho’oponopono, you are allowing yourself to embrace your role in the manifestation of the event and send forth love, remorse, forgiveness and gratitude.
We all play a very important part in the creation of not only our own lives but our thoughts, beliefs, and actions contribute to the global experience. For example, our beliefs that ‘there’s not enough to go around’ actually inspire and contribute to this reality. Our beliefs about ‘evil’, actually go forth and inspire more evil to be perpetrated.
In the YouTube video below, you’ll hear the story of Dr. Hew Len and how he used Ho’oponopono to heal an entire ward of seriously psychotic patients by healing his thoughts about their illness. He would invoke his personal responsibility and the process of self-identity with – “Please forgive me for whatever is going on in me that I perceive this unit the way it is. I would like to make amends.”
Dr. Hew Len would do this process every morning and throughout the day. It took three years the entire unit was transformed as a result of Dr. Hew Len only working on himself. He would say, “I don’t know how this worked” but it certainly did.
Thus, whether you apply Ho’oponopono to your personal experience at work or in a relationship or to a foreign tragedy such as war in Afghanistan or the Palestinian conflict, for example, you are sending forth the energy that creates worlds and transforms dysfunction into love.
When we set free the love in our heart we engage in “Peace beginning with me” and as students of conscious creation, we know that as we find peace, we inspire peace in those around us.
