Ho’oponopono Mantra – Cleansing the Sub-conscious  

mindfulness into action

Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len, is a Hawaiian therapist, who merely by using the Ho’oponopono Mantra cured a whole ward of violent criminals confined in a mental hospital in Hawaii. He states that each of must take responsibility with everything that is going on in our life, in our minds, in our thoughts, with our emotions, with our bodies and even with those around us.

If someone upsets me, I must ask, what is going on with me? If someone steals from me, I must ask, what is going on with me? When he found himself surrounded by violent patients, he asked himself, what is going on with me?

When we suffer, even if it seems to come from an external source, there is something inside of us that needs to be cleansed. More specifically, Dr. Hew Len states that suffering is old memories replaying in the subconscious wanting to be re-experienced. Our job is to cleanse it.

As we cleanse our subconscious, we are able to move forward and away from our life drama. How do we cleanse our subconscious? We use the Ho’oponopono Mantra, simply say:

          • I’m Sorry
          • Forgive Me
          • Thank you
          • I love you

But are we talking to when we say it? We are talking to our subconscious – meaning ourselves.  

Next time you sense pain, hurt, frustration, jealously, anger, disappointment, sorrow, or you feel like you are being attacked, targeted, being made fun of, and everything in between – give the mantra a try. The words are small, they are simple, and extremely powerful.
