ho'oponopono peacemaking meditation

Ho’oponopono, pronounced “hoh oh pohno pohno is a Huna process that brings balance and harmony to one’s life.  It can be practiced anywhere and many ways.  This ancient healing practice was part of the long extended lomilomi training.  However, modern simplified versions are now being taught in workshops to make this exercise journey of healing and peacemaking more assessable.

Ho’oponopono healing is based on the following four statements:

The following Peacemaking Meditation is modeled after Vicki Howie’s “Heal Your Heart Chakra Using Ho’oponopono”, which you can hear on chakraboosters.com:

1. Begin lying down, rest left hand comfortably on the second chakra and the right hand on your heart. Breathe in through the nose and out through the mouth and relax into a normal breathing pattern.

2. Bring attention to someone you are feeling some disconnection or discord with and place them in a beautiful place and start sending out love to this person. Visualize your heart being connected to their heart with a magnificent rainbow of colors.

3. Visualize this rainbow of colors carrying the following words back and forth to the two hearts connected. Start saying these words slowly to yourself: “I am sorry…Please forgive me…I love you…Thank you”

As you repeat these four statements, healing begins from within for yourself and the other person. Continue to repeat these statements as a mantra for as long as you feel it is needed.  This is another excellent bedtime meditation.

The voice has a tremendous ability to be an instrument for healing. It is a powerful tool for relaxing, improving sleep patterns, releasing stress, and bringing balance/harmony to the body. Ted Andrews is a pioneer in the field of healing with sounds. In his book Sacred Sounds: Magic & Healing Through Words & Music he explains “the method of opening by the vowels can be better understood if we realize that breath penetrates deeply into the region concerned, according to our thoughts. The breath takes the energy of prana and combines it with the vowel tones and together they open specific inner regions of the body or consciousness.”

HEALING VOWEL SOUNDS (featured in Ted Andrew’s book)
Vowel – Area of Body Opened by its Sounding
U – Pelvis, hips, legs, feet, and lower body in general.
O – Lower trunk, abdomen area from solar plexus to groin.
A – Chest cavity, heart, and the body as a whole.
E – Throat, upper chest, back of the skull and head regions.
