There is an Hawaiian system called Ho’oponopono (mental cleansing) whose basic tenant is that you have 100% responsibility for everything In your world. If something comes to your attention you have responsibility. This is a similar to the use of the law of attraction where you likewise need to be responsible if you are to master it. With Ho’oponopono the proper response to a situation is to clean your thoughts in four steps:
- Ask forgiveness
- Say “I’m Sorry”
- Express gratitude that you have been forgiven and thanks for the resolution, say Thank you.
- Say “I love you.” There is not a better expression of gratitude than love. Gratitude is an essential part of using the law of attraction.
These responses will change any situation, even with other people. Keep using the cleaning process on your situation until the change comes.
The late Morrnah Simeona was one of the great teachers of Ho’oponopono and offered this prayer on many occasions:
Divine creator, father, mother, son as one… If I, my family, relatives, and ancestors have offended you, your family, relatives, and ancestors in thoughts, words, deeds, and actions from the beginning of our creation to the present, we ask your forgiveness… Let this cleanse, purify, release, cut all the negative memories, blocks, energies, and vibrations and transmute these unwanted energies to pure light… And it is done.
Spend some time meditating on the prayer listed above by Morrnah Simeona. There is a great peace to be had in that prayer.
Ho’oponopono teaches that our thoughts are based on old memories, these memories replay in our lives over and over – blocking inspiration untll we clear them with the simple process listed above. These memories block inspiration in our lives and we cannot achieve our proper place in life until we allow inspiration to come through.
These memories bubble up in mind replay and cause problems – real and imagined. Forgiveness, thank you, and love are possibly the only ways to get past those thoughts.
Ho’oponopono is an amazing process. Ho’oponopono as another facet of the beautiful gem that we call the law of attraction. Put the ideas to work in your life. Accept complete responsibility for your circumstances – sure there are always reasons that things exist but if you believe the law of attraction then accept that your thoughts can affect those things and your awareness gives you responsibility and power.
