The Ancient Hoʻoponopono Prayer for Forgiveness and Healing
How It Works
The Ho'oponopono Prayer is an ancient Hawaiian healing technique. I tend to use it when I regret saying something that I know hurt someone. Or my actions impacted someone negatively. Or if I am filled with worry or fear or angry...
Simply repeat the words:
I AM SORRY
PLEASE FORGIVE ME
I LOVE YOU
Say these words over and over again like a mantra while visualizing or thinking about the person whom you are in conflict with. You can say them in your head. The person who you are saying them to does not need to hear them. The power is in saying the words with genuine love and kindness. Doing this will soften the feelings and dissipate the negative energy. You can also direct the words at yourself because often negative feelings for others start with negative feelings for ourselves. I have read you can also use it for overall healing of yourself and others. It is not just for forgiveness.

Years ago I stumbled upon an article about the Hoʻoponopono prayer. I learned it was an ancient Hawaiian prayer. I also read about how a therapist named Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len used it to heal himself and a ward of criminally insane patients. I was curious and started using it and was amazed when I sensed a difference in how I was feeling or a bad situation just dissipated.
It is important to have tools in the toolbox for feeling, getting and being better. This is one of mine. And it is way too easy not to give it a try!!
