Have You Tried Ho’Oponopono? This Easy Hawaiian Practice Heals Your Relationships


If you’re not familiar with the beautiful Heart-healing technique know as Ho'Oponopono, you should be. It’s the simplest, yet most profound technique I know for opening your heart chakra. Right here. Right now.

It’s based around four key phrases —  perhaps four of the hardest phrases to say. That is why it’s so magical. It loosens up our ego and our habitual language defenses.

Here are the four phrases:

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 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.

I know that saying the order is not very important may seem like sacrilege to some, but with Ho’Oponopono as with ANY technique, following your Inner Guidance and making it your own are essential if the technique is to reach your deepest essence. Do what feels right to you.

ho'oponoponoWhat I love most about Ho'Oponopono is its simplicity, and how it never gets old. You can do it again and again continue to experience new openings of the heart. I’ve created a 9-minute meditation that you can do daily. I believe it encompasses the essence of this heart-connecting technique, and I hope it'll help you more fully embody your heart center, and assist you in healing any relationship that currently feels disconnected.

The meditation will invite you to focus on a person you with whom you want to have a more connected and harmonious relationship. Alternatively, you may choose to focus on a quality or a thing instead. Say, for instance, you’d like to experience more confidence, then you could do this exercise with the quality of confidence; literally visualizing (and feeling into) confidence.

Or if you feel like you have a strained relationship with money, you may choose to do this exercise with money. You can personify absolutely anything and use this powerful meditation to break through any and all personal blocks

Like anything else, practice makes you better and better, so the more you do it, the more you'll see your relationships positively shift.

Before you begin the meditation, please take a moment to empty your mind and release any old stories you may be holding about the relationship you want to mend.

At the base of Ho’Oponopono is the concept of total responsibility — not just for your own actions, but for everybody else's too. You are showing up to just be a strong, healing presence and will be healed in the process.

This technique has no room for our little ego self. Connection, clearing and forgiveness are much more important than ego concerns about who is right and who is wrong. So, make sure you REALLY want to heal and connect with your loved one even more than you want to be right, feel victimized or replay your “old story.”

    A few years ago, I began practicing the original 14-step ho’oponopono process of Morrnah Simeona. It is a process to solve problems and conflicts. You do not need to know the causes of your problems to practice the original 14-step ho’oponopono of Morrnah Simeona. The ho’oponopono process takes 30 Minutes. Dr. Hew Len has healed 23 criminal patients in the Hawaiian State Hospital with the original 14-step ho’oponopono process of Morrnah Simeona. The original 14-step process of Morrnah Simeona can be learned by Pacifica Seminars. Pacifica Seminars in Germany was founded by Yvette Mauri and Morrnah Simeona in 1990 (see http://www.pacificaseminars.de). This original 14-step process of Morrnah Simeona is officially recognized in Hawaii.

    I would like to tell about ho’oponopono, Dr. Hew Len and about Morrnah Simeona.

    The Mantra “i love you, please forgive you, im sorry, thank you.” is not ho’oponopono and is not hawaiian. Dr. Hew Len never healed with a mantra “i love you, please forgive you, im sorry, thank you.” in Hawaii State Hospital. This Mantra was developed by Dr. Hew Len after Morrnah Simeonas death and its not ho’oponopono and not hawaiian.

    Morrnah Simeona (1913 – 1992) was a native hawaiian kahuna. She adapted the traditional Ho’oponopono to today’s times and realities. She has developed a 14-step Ho’oponopono-process. Everyone can learn and use this process. This is a modern version of the traditional Ho’oponopono process. Morrnah has founded the “Pacifica Seminars” in the 1970s and then the “Foundation of I” to spread her 14-step ho’oponopono around the world. She made it possible for all people to solve their problems with her 14-Step Ho’oponopono.
    In September 1990, Morrnah and Yvette Mauri founded “Pacifica Seminars” in Germany (see the german pacificaseminars website). Pacifica Seminars Europe is the only organization in Europe, where you can learn Morrnah’s original Ho’oponopono-process today, that was developed by Morrnah.

    Morrnah Simeona was the teacher of Michael Micklei and Dr. Hew Len. Michael Micklei worked closely with Morrnah around 5 years together. Morrnah lived in Michael Mickleis and Yvettes home in Germany until she passed away in 1992. Michael Micklei translated Morrnah’s 14-step ho’oponopono to german. He has been authorized to do so by Morrnah Simeona.
    Michael Micklei knows Dr. Hew Len already at the time, while Dr. Hew Len worked in the Hawaii state Hospital in the 1980s. Michael Micklei and Dr. Hew Len gave togehter Ho’oponopono seminars (at that time Morrnah was still alive). In the seminars were teached only the 14-step ho’oponopono process of Morrnah Simeona. Never a mantra.

    Michael Micklei wrote in a comment to an another person:

    Dr. Len never healed in the mentioned hospital by only saying over and over “I love you” and “Thank you” to the “I”, Morrnahs word for the Source, for Divinity. Instead he used Morrnahs 12 (or 14) step process only, twice or three times a day. Every day he walked through the hospital he looked carefully to the patients, the doctors, his feelings. He taped this. And asked Divinity to heal his karmic bondages with these persons and matters. A hard job for three years. Divinity accepted the plea and healed. 2 persons were not healed, as there were no karmic bondages with Dr. Len.

    Morrnah gave him this kind of order to do so (and at that time he worked really for the good to help Morrnah for her special spiritual job) and in classes, we both attended between Nov. 86 and later, Dr. Len was always telling in detail at the beginning that he was doing exactly this, nothing else. NO mantra was mentioned, never. At that time, Dr. Len was a student of Morrnah like me, so why and how could he use a quite different way in the hospital – and at the weekend in classes he said the opposite? Morrnah was also complex clairvoyant, she could see and hear everything.

    All so called tools of Dr. Len (except 2 or 3) were developped by Dr. Len after 1992, which are only temporarily harmonizing or calming down – NOT cleansing, NOT being any ho’oponopono, as they are not mutual. They are (powerful) magic tools. They are not bad in itsself, but they block people to learn authentic ho’oponoponos – traditional ones or the one of Morrnah. People like those easy magic ways, they really think to heal karmic stuff of hundreds and more reincarnations by 11 words.

    It is clearly the good part of Joe Vitale’s job to spread the name of ho’oponopono from the time of “Zero limits” across the world – but the illusion is inclusive: people know the name, but did not hear about the real content of ho’oponopono or even forget it. Pls keep in mind Dr. Len’s words (received by his divinity) in Zero Limits: “I’ve been told to kill the Divine to be home.” To kill the Divine? Well, starting to take him out from the cleansing. This does not seem a path up to the mountain.
    mahalo for sharing.”

    Dr. Hew Len does not speak anymore about Morrnah’s 14-step Ho’oponopono today and about the healings of his patients in Hawaii State Hospital with Morrnah’s Ho’oponopono.
    Nobody talks about Morrnah’s 14-step Ho’oponopono today. Morrnah’s Ho’oponopono is no longer known to anyone today. I really hope that Morrnah’s original Ho’oponopono-process regains fame among the people.
    I know Morrnah’s Ho’oponopono and would highly recommend it. So many things in my life have changed positively trough Morrnah’s Ho’oponopono.

    I can only say, steer clear of Dr. Hew Lens 4-pharse mantra and of Dr. Hew Lens cleaning tools!

    Michael Micklei has written a report about Dr. Hew Len and the healings in Hawaii State Hospital that happend with Morrnah’s 14-step Ho’oponopono. Please let me share this link (is only in german language, please use Google tanslator to translate to your language):
    www (dot) pacificaseminars (dot) de

    As far as I know, Morrnah has been working hard on her 14-step ho’oponopono process for many, many years. Morrnah Simeona completed the final version of her 14-step Ho’oponopono process in 1991. It is the final version today. Pacifica Seminars teach this final version of Morrnah’s Ho’oponopono in seminars and in a book.

    Please share this information to another people 🙂

      Hello I was looking into ho’oponopono And came to your comments here. You are saying there is no way today to learn authentic 14 step ho’oponopono? I would like to learn this as opposed to the more popular 4 phrase version which you warn against. Please reply and thank you!
