Ho’oponopono – Hawaiian Forgiveness Ceremony
This ceremony has helped me so much. They say that by saying this prayer over and over, you are not only healing yourself, but the world.
” In the native Hawaiian community, a Kahuna served all equally and with respect. To a certain extent, the Kahuna was involved in every aspect of community life, healing mental, emotional, and physical illnesses as well as resolving broader disagreements. By mediating between the spiritual realms and the community, a Kahuna maintained a necessary balance of harmony. Healing took place in different ways, at different levels. “A Kahuna could often recognize and dissolve potential problems before they occurred. If a disease did not respond to la’au lapa’au (herbal remedies), lomilomi (massage) or la’au kahea (healing chants), then that disease was considered to represent an imbalance in the community.”
“We are the sum total of our experiences, which is to say that we are burdened by our pasts. When we experience stress or fear in our lives, if we would look carefully, we would find that the cause is actually a memory. It is the emotions which are tied to these memories which affect us now. The subconscious associates an action or person in the present with something that happened in the past. When this occurs, emotions are activated and stress is produced.
Please forgive me
I love you
By saying these words over and over, a person is said to connect her/his own inner light with the light of Source. Over time, patterns in the subconscious dissolve, and by forgiving the parts within that hold those patterns, the person’s outer world regains balance and harmony.
My Peace “I” give to you, My Peace “I” leave with you,
Ha’awi aku wau I ku’u Maluhia ia oe, waiho aku wau I ku’u Maluhia me oe,
Not the world’s Peace, but, only My Peace, The Peace of “I”.
A’ole ka Maluhia o ke ao aka, ka’u Maluhia wale no, Ka Maluhia o ka “I”.

You are not saying the prayer to the person, but rather to the parts of yourself that are triggered, or remembering the past hurts and pains. In my personal experience, when I have had something trigger me or someone, I begin saying the prayer over and over holding the feeling I am having in my minds eye while repeating.
This is a beautiful way to find a little softness and self love. It is something that you can do anytime, to help heal the old ancestral programs, memories from the past that get stuck in our minds and tissue.
