Why would I want to go around forgiving anyone and everything? Because this practice does bring joy and love. To prove this, take a moment and practice it. You’ll begin to experience the heartwarming feelings generated by this practice.
You’ll use Ho’oponopono to deal with negative feelings when someone has upset you or hurt you. Ho’oponopono can be used for any kind of forgiveness. But it recommending for the smaller every-day types of forgiveness to help keep relationships from dissolving into anger and bitterness.
Ho’oponopono consists of four phrases:
Step 1: Repentance – I’M SORRYRepentance – I’M SORRY
You are responsible for everything in your mind, even if it seems to be “out there.” Once you realize that, it’s very natural to feel sorry. I know I sure do. If I hear of a tornado, I am so full of remorse that something in my consciousness has created that idea. I’m so very sorry that someone I know has a broken bone that I realize I have caused.
So choose something that you already know you’ve caused for yourself? Over-weight? Addicted to nicotine, alcohol or some other substance? Do you have anger issues? Health problems? Start there and say you’re sorry. That’s the whole step: I’M SORRY. Although I think it is more powerful if you say it more clearly: “I realize that I am responsible for the (issue) in my life and I feel terrible remorse that something in my consciousness has caused this.”
Step 2: Ask Forgiveness – PLEASE FORGIVE MEAsk Forgiveness – PLEASE FORGIVE ME
Don’t worry about who you’re asking. Just ask! PLEASE FORGIVE ME. Say it over and over. Mean it. Remember your remorse from step 1 as you ask to be forgiven.
Step 3: Gratitude – THANK YOUGratitude – THANK YOU
Say “THANK YOU” – again it doesn’t really matter who or what you’re thanking. Thank your body for all it does for you. Thank yourself for being the best you can be. Thank God. Thank the Universe. Thank whatever it was that just forgave you. Just keep saying THANK YOU.
Step 4: Love – I LOVE YOULove – I LOVE YOU
This can also be step 1. Say I LOVE YOU. Say it to your body, say it to God. Say I LOVE YOU to the air you breathe, to the house that shelters you. Say I LOVE YOU to your challenges. Say it over and over. Mean it. Feel it. There is nothing as powerful as Love.
That’s it. The whole practice in a nutshell. Simple and amazingly effective.
When an unpleasant feeling, situation or interaction arises, repeats these four phrases until a feeling of balance and neutrality arises. One key point of Ho’oponopono is that nothing manifests externally, it is all within. So when we mentally say “I love you,” we are expressing a loving orientation towards ourselves. “I’m sorry” is an apology for creating a disharmonious circumstance. Next, we mentally forgive ourselves for the digression. Finally, we express our gratitude. Joe Vitale of The Secret and long-time practitioner of Ho’oponopono, says that even just mentally saying “I love you” will help shift negativity into more positive, authentic states.
Ho’oponopono call this practice “cleaning,” you clean yourself of your own negative feelings to erase from your memory or consciousness whatever negativity is not working for you. You are expressing the fact that you no longer wish to suffer from a current or past problem. The only person you can change is yourself. Furthermore, in a two-person situation you will have played some role in the relationship problem even if it’s just a victim. You will be using Ho’oponopono to obtain forgiveness for yourself.
The next two phrases are “Thank you. I love you”.
In this practice gratitude and love will help you anchor into a heart-based response. The mind by itself is never able to solve negativity and distress, whereas the heart is the repository of positive emotions. Feelings of self acceptance and self love are increased during this process.
Ho’oponopono is also a mindfulness technique helping you to live in the present, not in the distressing past.
The Ho’oponopono experience can be beautiful and uplifting. When this expectation established, it will be easier for you to use Ho’oponopono when you are feeling down and distressed. You can make the experience more meaningful and enjoyable by using it.
The Ho’oponopono phrases can be used as a forgiveness mantra, repeating the phrases until your heart softens, your mood lightens, and you feel deep resolution and understanding that harmony is restored. The ultimate outcome is that you can think about the incident and/or the other person with calmness and serenity and without negative feelings. If your upset feelings return, you can simply try the Ho’oponopono process again.
You will practice Ho’oponopono as an act of personal strength and courage, not as a doormat or victim. Ho’oponopono allows you to approach the future with a clean slate, open to positive interactions without blame or recriminations. Continuing an angry relationship with a perpetrator actually creates an anger bond which ties you to the problem and the traumatic relationship.
