“We can appeal to the Divinity who knows our personal pattern, to heal all the thoughts and memories that prevent us from advancing,” Morrnah Simeona confides in a soft voice. “It is a question of going beyond the traditional means of access to the knowledge of ourselves”.
The process Morrnah is talking about is based on an ancient Hawaiian method of stress reduction (letting go) and problem solving called Ho’oponopono. The word Ho’oponopono means to make right, to rectify an error. Morrnah is a Kahuna Lapa’au from Hawaii. Kahuna means “guardian of the secret” and Lapa’au means “specialist healer”. She was chosen to be Kahuna when she was still a child and received the gift of healing at the age of three. She is the daughter of a member of the court of Queen Liliuokalani, the last ruler of the Hawaiian Islands.
The process that is being transmitted is the adaptation to the modern world of an ancient spiritual ritual of purification. It has proved so effective that Morrnah has been invited to teach at the United Nations, the World Health Organization and many institutions around the world.
How does Ho’oponopono work? Morrnah explains: “We are the sum of all our experiences, which means that we are congested by our past. When we experience stress or fear in our lives, watching closely, we might realize the subconscious associates an action or a person in the present with something that has happened in the past.When this happens, emotions are activated and stress occurs. ”
She continues, “The main purpose of this process and to discover the Divinity within us. Ho’oponopono is a very profound tool that allows everyone to develop a cooperative relationship with the Godhead within himself and to learn to ask that each the errors in thoughts, words, facts and actions are cleansed. “The process is essentially about freedom, the total liberation of the past.”
The memory of all experiences, from the first moment of our creation, from time immemorial, is recorded in a thought-form and stored on the etheric plane. This incredible computer / recorder is also known as the subconscious, Unihipili, or childlike aspect within each of us. The inner child is quite real and represents a part of the Self. The other aspects are the Mother, also identified by the name of Uhane or rational mind, and the Father, superconscious or Spiritual aspect. They all form the inner family, which in collaboration with the Divine Creator constitutes the identity of Self. Every human being in creation, every plant, every atom and every molecule possesses these three aspects, but the pattern of each is totally different.
The most important task for everyone is to find his true identity and his true place in the Universe. The method provides access to this understanding.
The purpose of the Ho’oponopono is to: 1) Stay connected with the Inner Deity moment by moment 2) Ask for each memory and its contents to be purified. Only the Divinity can do it. Only the Divinity can erase or correct memories and thought forms. Since it created us, the Divinity alone knows what is happening inside us.
In this system, there is no need to analyze, solve or deal with problems. Since the Divine created us, it is enough to turn directly to Him and to ask him to correct and to clean what must be.
In the field of problem solving: the world is a reflection of what is happening inside of us. If you experience irritation or imbalance, it is within yourself that you must turn and not outside, to what seems to cause the problem. Any stress, imbalance or illness can be corrected by working only on yourself. It is important to note that this system is completely different from other forms of Ho’oponopono: In the traditional method all those involved in the problem must be physically present to solve it together. In the method of Morrnah, everything can be managed by you and the Divinity. You do not have to move one centimeter away from yourself to get the help or answers you need.
Morrnah particularly recommends Ho’oponopono to those who work in the care and healing trades: “It is important to clean up karmic ties with your clients before you start working with them, so you will not reactivate old things between you. Maybe you do not have to work at all with somebody, only the Godhead knows it.If you work with someone you should not have, you can take on your whole problem and everything associated with it. Ho’oponopono offers tools to prevent this from happening. ” Morrnah wished that in Western society, each of us could contribute to the reduction of stress. “Westerners have the greatest difficulty in keeping the intellect apart. It is very difficult for a Western mind to accede to the Higher Being because in Western churches the mode of access to the Higher Beings is not really revealed. “She continues:” The Western man went very far with his intellect, it divides and keeps people separated. Thus man becomes destructive because he manipulates and controls rather than letting the creative force of the Divine flow through him, inspiring him with righteous action. ”
Morrnah works with his associate Doctor Stanley Hew Len * who spent several years as a clinical psychologist at the Hawaii Regional Hospital. He has achieved impressive results using this method with Hawaii’s most dangerous and violent psychopathic criminals. However, he did not speak to them, he did not ask to examine them. He was content to write their names and work on himself. He cleansed his judgments, beliefs, attitudes and asked the Divinity what he could do for that person. As these ties and memories were cleaned, patients healed. “Divinity,” says Stan, “says it’s time to bring all the kids home.”
