The essence of ho’oponopono is to understand, forgive, thank and love. It is based on a personal healing of the past, to live better day to day.
Living in the here and now and taking responsibility for everything that happens to us, both thoughts, words, actions and omissions, are the maxims of ho’oponopono. A Hawaiian healing technique based on solving problems through a process of forgiveness and inner reconciliation.
The Hakuna Morrnah Nalamaku Simeona was the one who brought about 50 years ago the teachings of this practice to the West. “We are the sum total of our experiences, or that means we can be overwhelmed by the past. When we experience tension or fear in life we will find that the cause is really a memory.
The subconscious associates an action or person in the present with something that happened in the past, “says the theory of Nalamaku Simeona. Little by little, this has been updated, giving people tools for life through spiritual strengthening.
This method of healing seeks to clean the unconscious memories and negative emotions that happen to a person in relation to a problem, so that other things flow.
“It is a technique for me to heal myself, forgive myself from love and reconciliation and obtain peace, in this way things begin to flow more serenely,” says Isabel Flórez, facilitator of the technique ho’oponopono, which means in the dictionary Hawaiian correct an error. How does it work? The first thing is to recognize that each person is accompanied by a sometimes painful past, the second to identify those facts that hurt, if there are any, and then begin to let go and let them go without rancor.
A voluntary exercise that also applies to control the anxiety produced by the future and the situations that surround the day to day in relation to work and family. Each human being adapts the practice according to its objective.
“Thank you, sorry, I love you and I’m sorry” are the four key words for this technique to work in the ideal way. His mental and frequent repetition in difficult moments allow the individual to be more aware of what he lives and what he wants to leave behind, leaving aside worry, stress, anguish and those feelings that rob him of his tranquility.
According to this philosophy, everything that appears in life is a thought, a memory and is presented to give the person the opportunity to let go, to cleanse, to erase.
“This mantra contains words of high vibration, which allows to calm the mind and silence the ego. They are meaningful words that you tell yourself and allow you to stay in the present, attracting new things to your life, “adds Isabel. Thus, if a person wants to change something that he considers negative in his day to day, he must understand what really affects him, to make the leap he needs and achieve the transformation he is looking for.
The ho ‘oponopono and the NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) have a connection. Both seek that people reprogram their way of seeing life, their thoughts and their visions through messages that become subliminal and that take their seat in the subconscious. However, NLP does not integrate in its theory the concept of spirituality that does have the ho ‘oponopono, which tries to be a philosophy of life and connection with being.
