Ho oponopono consists of four statements intended to shift thought and action from harshness to love. The teachings of Ho oponopono originated in hawaii, and this simple and popular statement has changed many lives. You can use ho oponopono for yourself or for others.
“Hoʻoponopono” is defined in the Hawaiian Dictionary as “mental cleansing: family conferences in which relationships were set right through prayer, discussion, confession, repentance, and mutual restitution and forgiveness.”
Ho’o means “to” – the action or decision. Ponopono means “put to rights; put in order or shape, correct, revise, adjust, amend, regulate, arrange, rectify, tidy up, make orderly or neat.”
From the belief in Ho’oponopono, and a belief in the ancient hawaiian culture that all illness came from negative thoughts and feelings, came the teachings of a mantra that is known today as Ho’oponopono: “I’m sorry, please forgive me, I love you, thank you”. The words can be spoken or thought in silence.
