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:

  1. I imagine myself on a giant stage
  2. I engulf my whole body in loving, healing, white light
  3. I bring everyone I know onto the stage in groups
  4. My white light fills the stage and engulfs them
  5. My white light attaches our hearts together to send them loving, healing, energy
  6. 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.”
  7. Imagine a white light shaped like a knife coming down to cut the chord of white light between you
  8. They disappear off the stage instantly
  9. If you want to reconnect with them, just think of them again in a loving fasion
  10. 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.
