Ho’oponopono: to forgive and be reconciled
Ho’oponopono is all about the mantra I’m sorry, forgive me, I love you, thank you.
Coming from the Hawaiian ancestral tradition and modernized by the healer Morrnah Nalamaku Simeona and her student Ihalekala Hew Len, the Ho’oponopono can be practiced at any time, with a minimum of attention and equal imparting their benefits.
Considered by many as an odyssey, the quest for harmony and inner peace amidst the chaos of modern life, and it is a real challenge for those of us who decided to give a space in our agenda to spirituality.
One of the techniques that more adepts has gained by the simplicity and practicality of its execution is the Ho’oponopono, that promotes the spiritual healing through the repetition of this mantra.
The Ho’oponopono prayer is, above all, an art of healing that comes to us from Hawaii. If we break down the word Hawaii, “Ha” means inhalation, “Wai” means water and “i” means the Divine. One could say that the word Hawaii means “breath and water of the Divine”. In itself, this word already speaks of a place conducive to healing.
The ho’oponopono prayer is in fact a “social and spiritual tradition of repentance as well as reconciliation of the ancients”. In the word Ho’oponopono, we find:
- Ho’o meaning “to start an action”
- Pono means “goodness, honesty, morality, moral qualities, correct and just actions”
- Ponopono means “to put things in order, to clean up, to act properly”

Preparing up the Ho’oponopono prayer
Now, sit back and relax. Think about your problem, and go inside yourself to connect with your inner light. Breathe calmly, to become fully aware of your breathing and the incredible functioning of the human body.
Visualize a square. Inhale for 4 seconds, block for 4 seconds, exhale for 4 seconds and finally block again for 4 seconds. Perform this breathing exercise at least 7 times until you feel invaded by the calm.
Now you are ready to pray Morrnah’s Ho’oponopono, which acts as a spiritual balm in difficult situations and connects you to your divine energy.

Divine Creator, father, mother, son all in one.

May all this be cleansed, purified, and released.
May all memories, blockages, energies and negative vibrations be cut off.
May all these undesirable energies be transmuted into pure light.
So be it.
