Ho’oponopno is one of my favorite practices. It’s simple, easy to do in daily life, and it works.
Here are the brief instructions for how to do ho’oponopno:
I am sorry.
Please forgive me.
I love you.
Say this to anyone or anything in your world that bothers you or seems like a problem or an enemy. Repeat until there is a softening and the sense of separation dissolves. Then continue a little more and see how it deepens.
It’s more important that it works than how. And yet, exploring and noticing how it seems to work can be helpful. It can give us insights into how the mind works.
I find is that ho’opono invites a healing of my world. I heal my experience of the world. I heal my relationship to my the imaginations that makes up my experience of the world. And that’s a big deal. That has ripple effects through my life and beyond.
Most or all of the tools I explore seems to work through healing my world. They heal my relationship to my imaginations that makes up my experience of the world.
