Ho’oponopono is a Hawaiian practice of forgiveness of others and yourself. It translates simply as correction, or “to make right.” It’s a visualizing practice done within your own mind to heal yourself and others.
I was first introduced to ho’oponopono by Dr. Matt James during his NLP Training in February 2014. Since that time I just toyed with this spiritual practice. It wasn’t until recently that I started to do this daily.
The Day I Started Ho’oponopono

Why I Started
Because of my multiple sclerosis (MS), I get to do fun tests like a spinal tap every now and then as shown in the image above. In August 2017 I received my second one. While laying in the bed for a few hours after the test, that’s when I started to habitually practice ho’oponopono again.
Living with a chronic illness inspires a lot of healthy habits in millions of people. I chose to use my mind to forgive myself and others to enable greater healing.
How To Do It
There are many ways to do ho’oponopono so I would do further research into it if you feel inclined to do so.
What I learned from Dr. Matt:
- I imagine myself on a giant stage
- I engulf my whole body in loving, healing, white light
- I bring everyone I know onto the stage in groups
- My white light fills the stage and engulfs them
- My white light attaches our hearts together to send them loving, healing, energy
- Begin the healing process
- Dr. Matt recommends to say to yourself, “I forgive you, please forgive me too.”
- Various google sources state, “I’m sorry. Please forgive me. I love you. Thank you.”
- What I do is, “I’m sorry. Please forgive me. I forgive you. I love you. Thank you.”
- Imagine a white light shaped like a knife coming down to cut the chord of white light between you
- They disappear off the stage instantly
- If you want to reconnect with them, just think of them again in a loving fasion
- Do again and again with all the various groups of people in your life
When meditating, I don’t have a specific way of doing it. Sometimes I do it lying down, sitting, or even walking. This entire process is all in your imagination and does miraculous wonders to benefit your health.
Since I’m in the middle of a 30-day blog writing challenge, why don’t you challenge yourself to doing ho’oponopono once a day too. By next month, your health and relationships WILL change for the better!
