Offering open hands of forgiveness

History of Ho’oponopono

The ancient healing method of Ho’oponopono is believed to have originated in Hawaii. Ho’oponopono is defined in the Hawaiian dictionary as a form of mental cleansing and setting things right through forgiveness, mutual restitution, and supportive thoughts. Preeminent Hawaiian scholar Mary Kawena Pukui wrote that Ho’oponopono was a meditation and prayer practice in ancient Hawaii. Many Hawaiians believe that illness is caused by breaking community rules and spiritual laws and that the illness cannot be cured until the people atone for this transgression. The practice is often used to mediate unresolvable disputes between families and friends. The healing could only come with the complete forgiveness and resolution of the entire group involved.

Ho’oponopono consists of four powerful phrases: While the order and sequence may change, the intention and inspiration are genuine, premeditated, and sincere. The goal is to resolve any disruptive issue, offense, or transgression that has occurred in the past and that is causing issues in the present. The four phrases may be repeated several times or once with pure intentions. The belief behind Ho’opomopono is that all parties play a role in whatever happens or fails to happen, and as a result, there is a negative emotion or energy that affects the health and well-being of the parties involved.

Ho’oponopono prayer for happiness, healing, and health includes four simple statements.

  1. I am sorry
  2. Please forgive me
  3. I appreciate you or love you (depending on what a person feels more comfortable saying)
  4. Thank you

Dr. Hew Len (Haleakalā Hew Len)

History of Dr. Hew Len

Ho’oponopono was practiced and popularized by Dr. Hew Len (Haleakalā Hew Len), a psychologist employed at the Hawaii State Hospital. He was employed in the high-security ward for the criminally and mentally insane from 1983 to 1987.  He was serving as a psychologist to help support patients in a high-security ward of the Hawaii State Hospital for those suffering from many different mental health challenges. The way the story goes, Dr. Len would read the patient files, stay positive and supportive, and set the stage for helping by saying the Ho[opnopono prayer to himself. He created an idea in his mind and an intention that people would heal and improve despite whatever emotional pain and upsets they experienced in the past.

Dr. Len says that Ho’oponopono is the process where we say or think to The Divine: “I love you” (oneness and unification), “I am sorry” (repentance), “Please forgive me” (ask forgiveness), and “Thank you” (transmutation).
When he was asked what caused the patients to change, his simple answer was, “I was simply healing the part of me that created the issue in them.” He believed that total responsibility for what happens in your life means that everything that occurs in your life is your responsibility. In a literal sense, we co-create the world around us.

Therefore, we must take complete responsibility for whatever happens in our lives. Everything you hear, say, see, smell, taste, or touch is your responsibility because it is in your life. Ho’oponopono teaches taking 100% responsibility for everything that occurs in your life.

Dr. Len believes the miracles that occurred in the hospital were nothing more than him cleaning and cleansing the memories in him that were manifesting in the hospital.
He believes that The True Divinity releases our subconscious troubles to reprogram our problem thoughts to restore harmony and health.

The Ho’oponopono prayer is profound and powerful because we are allowing The Divine to do what it does peacefully and perfectly.
This is the big awareness that changed the life of Dr. Len. Everything exists as a projection from within. The problem is we often project problems into the world instead of projecting peace, politeness, progress, and prosperity,
Ho’oponopono means loving everyone and everything as they are to help heal our lives and the world around us. We help others heal when we help heal ourselves first, and collectively, we all heal together.
After practicing the Ho’opononopono prayer for the four years of his employment at the hospital, the patient’s issues were resolved, and they left the ward.  Dr. Len left his practice at the state hospital and became a world-renowned inspirational and spiritual healer. He now travels the world teaching Ho’oponopono.
