Ho’oponopono is a Hawaiian practice of reconciliation and forgiveness. The 1-dimensional English translation for the concept of Ho’oponopono is ‘correction’. Ho’oponopono consists of 4 simple sentences;
- I love You
- I am Sorry
- Please forgive me
- Thank you
Each of these sentences are already really powerful on their own, when spoken from the heart, with true sincerity. Ho’oponopono is the practice of repeatedly saying these 4 sentences like a mantra. By saying these 4 sentences combined, while taking full responsibility for whatever situation you perceive as wrong or disharmonious inside and outside of yourself, Ho’oponopono believes that you will eventually not only heal yourself but you will ultimately heal the wrong outside yourself.
For what you perceive as outside of yourself is in fact only a reflection of what goes on inside yourself. By taking full responsibility for that reflection through the practice of Ho’oponopono you will eventually ‘correct’ or heal the reflection and yourself.
