Ancient Hawaiian Clearin & Healing Method

It’s your peace when you are sad, it’s your Joy when you are happy, it’s your calm in the storm, it’s everything and nothing/zero all at once! ~ Maggie Anderson

I’ve been guided to share a most powerful yet simple Ancient Hawaiian clearing method. Ho’oponopono is an amazing way to heal what is within us and free us from suffering. Suffering is a choice.

This method is repeating 4 simple phrases over and over again till the issue has been cleared within. Ho’oponopono states that we are 100% responsibility for all that is in our reality. We created it. Whether is while in this life or prior to incarnating and deciding what we will and/or must experience in this life. That means while we don’t want nor would we ever wish for trauma or horrible challenges as the good humans we are; in truth our higher selves with the Divine agreed to go through certain things as a part of our souls blueprint for life to grow and evolve. We knew coming to Earth in this Lower density energy would bring challenges: ups and downs/ Yin and yang.

These things we see that are in our awareness are opportunities to send healing and cleansing. Using this method is truly a powerful way to do this. We say:

I’m sorry Please forgive me I love you Thank you

Ho’oponopono taking into account the totality of ALL lives, what you did in past lives thousands of years ago might be done to you now, or not. But come to it clean anyway. You goal is not how the other person acts or reacts or if they apologize, that is ego. Your goal is to clean the energetic part you may have contributed to this experience and leave clean. Know that you do not know. The more on this path the more that is clear that we do not know much!

Can you sit in the muck for a bit? This is the work. Just like in yoga, can you sit in a pose you hate or think you hate and be present with it. Feel what you need to feel and see what you need to see without judgment. Go through the shit and as you agree to this method of Ho’oponopono you will get opportunities to use it. Just say thank you for being my teacher.

Don’t go into it ever thinking you’ll get back what you give. JUST CLEAN YOURSELF. Do it daily, every morning towards any imprints that you’ve done to others. Since we are imprinting on others all the time. We don’t always know it consciously but something could be cleaned. Clean that karma. (Karma = Thought, Action and Deeds)

Leave their work to them. We don’t know what we did in this life or the many other lives that need clearing and cleansing.

SHAMANIC PRINCIPAL QUOTE: “One of your goals in life, in my opinion, is that you should try not to create unnecessary infringements on other sentient beings.” Walk softly on this Earth. Not here to cause pain/negative infringements, seen or unseen, to other sentient creatures. If I do that, in any way, even as a reaction to their cruelty, I am responsible for that imprint and there will be consequences for that. We are not excused for our actions no matter what. We can do this consciously or subconsciously, this lifetime or other lifetimes. Upside: Every improvement in you improves others! Hermetic Law! Hermetic principals, as within so without, as above so below. For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. Every act you take to improve yourself, improves the lives of everyone around you. You are reducing your own level of piece if you act negative infringements on self or others. (The rune is URUSE.) What we do impacts everything else. The part in the whole. When you constantly relive something. Where they can’t let go. Keep reliving a moment over and over again. Divorced for 10 years and keep talking about whatever happened. When people can’t let go, what they don’t realize it, that every time they keep reenacting that imprint they are activating all of that energy in that experience again in their own energy field. That’s how disease happens. Live with a light footprint. Where can you find compassion so you can heal and let go.

How much of other people’s perceptions of you are you responsible for? It’s a projection from them instead. Same as our very own filters. We have to work on OUR filters and perceptions of others. We never know ALL and ask yourself instead, how would this look like through a filter of compassion instead. Perhaps you can hold a little space for just love and divine healing and light, forgiveness, appreciation for being a teacher, etc. It’s easy to react. But grace will come. We’re being called to grace. We’re being called to remove the negative filters so they don’t keep repeating or expanding the energy field of negativity into more. THIS IS THE WORK.

We talk about Samscara in yoga. Samscara (Sanskrit) is the idea of accountability about your imprinting. Come to Forgiveness within the self!

My teacher gave me an example about this negative infringement on others: When parents see that 5 year old still in their old challenge that they have outgrown! They constantly talk about it and how it impacted that child and the parent. They are constantly reopening that door and may prevent that child/adult from moving beyond that challenge was and/or keeps their relationship in challenge mode. That is a negative infringement on a sentient being. That is not allowing that adult to be free now. She could be free of it but the Mom is doing this act of negative infringement either way and is incurring karma on herself to be worked on.

See if Ho’oponopono resonates as truth within you and give this method a try. Please read more in-depth about it below.

Ho’oponopono was updated by Kahuna Lapa`au, Morrnah Nalamaku Simeona and modernized by Ihaleakala Hew Len, Ph.D., (Dr. Len) Foundation of I, Inc. Freedom of the Cosmos and the modernized version is called Self Identity through Ho`oponopono (SITH). (

Ho’oponopono SITH

Self Identity through Ho’oponopono (SITH) is an updated version of an ancient Hawaiian problem solving process of repentance, forgiveness and transmutation . It is so easy and simple, it still amazes me!

“Ho’oponopono involves the full participation of each of the four members of Self Identity: Divine Intelligence, Super Conscious Mind, Conscious Mind and Subconscious Mind –working together as a unit of one. Each member has its unique part and function in problem solving memories replaying in the Subconscious Mind.” – Dr. Len The Foundation of I, Inc. Freedom of the Cosmos presents Self Identity through Ho`oponopono classes throughout the world. Ther are more articles from Dr. Len at his website about Ho’oponopono (SITH). Also, to have the full teachings of Ho’oponopono by Dr. Len please go directly to his site and sign up for any of his seminars or classes!

Ho’oponopono was first introduced to me by Joe Vitale in an article he wrote a couple years ago about a Dr. Len in Hawaii that healed an entire ward of the Criminally Insane in the 3 or 4 year he worked there, and get this: without ever seeing a patient! Just by reading their files and using the Ho’oponopono method discused in this article and on Dr. Len’s website. Thank you to Joe for getting this out to me and the masses and thank you Dr. Len for assisting and developing the new Ho’oponopono (SITH)!! I am forever grateful!!!

Ho’oponopono is a cleansing method that gets you to the Zero State. In Hawaiian: Hoo means cause and ponopono means perfection . Ho’oponopono is the ancient Hawaiian healing method that heals and transmutes/cleans all energies with current and past situations and people, all the way down the ancestry lines, yours and others throughout the *entire* Universe. All you need to do is say the four key phrases. At first you might not feel a thing. It matters not, the work is still being done. Eventually, you really *will* feel a difference in yourself and in others around you. You will have cleansed your life, continuing to cleanse, and brought yourself into a better frame of mind, body *and* soul!

It’s about taking full 100% responsibility for your actions, as well as those in your experience. You are only cleaning YOURSELF (as we are all one) and your reactions to anything and everything you come in contact with (especially those things that cause you an emotional charge)! Might be hard to wrap your head around this, but…. Whatever you experience in your life, right down the newspaper ad you just read, you’ve attracted to yourself. The Law of Attraction is in perfect and divine order in everyone’s life! If something is in your life that you are still somehow emotionally charged about, you attracted it and can transmute this energy by cleaning. (See below.) This is where you take full responsibility and clean on transmuting/healing this program/memory. Clean Clean Clean. As you clean on this issues, you are cleaning yourself of this memory that transmutes and cleans throughout the entire Universe. It’s your peace when you are sad, it’s your Joy when you are happy, it’s your calm in the storm, it’s everything and nothing/zero all at once!

Initially and consistently thereafter you say 4 key phrases: I’m sorry , please forgive me , I love you and Thank you. Some people have added “God Bless You”. I like this addition and add it when I am so inclined. When you see a problem present itself you say the four phrases. When you think on a person, you say the four phrases. When you are so negatively emotionally charged about something, you say the four phrases. When you are worried, unhappy, depressed, angry, full of rage, etc., etc., you say the four phrases. You bring yourself back to your center, you breath, you say the four phrases over and over again. When you are happy, you guessed it: You say the four phrases. Be in gratitude! This is called Cleaning. Clean Clean Clean!

The four phrases: I’m Sorry to yourself/the Universe for whatever it is in you that attracted this situation; Please forgive me to the yourself/the Universe for attracting this; I love you to yourself/the Universe sending love to YOU and ALL is transforming and transmuting with the high vibrational feeling/energy; and Thank You to you/the Universe for transmuting this problem/memory/situation and feeling that grateful energy that is of the highest vibrational frequency in-line with Love. Say them in any order, in your head or out loud. Say one phrase several times and move into another, whatever your intuition is guiding you to do. Whatever feels right to you in every moment. As Aimee so beautifully writes on her site, this is: ” … making an appeal to God through the spark of divinity within each of our souls, that which makes us an extension of God. ” As you request it, it is done! So relax, breath, clean and let go. It’s all in divine perfect order.

Before I get to most of the cleaning methods I’ve come to know from Joe Vitale and Dr. Len, I wanted to also inlude a Kahuna Liturgy cleaning/forgiveness prayer. This is the prayer Morrnah Simeona (the creator of the original process) said to help heal hundreds if not thousands of people. It’s simple but powerful:

“Divine creator, father, mother, son as one … If I, my family, relatives and ancestors have offended you, your family, relatives and ancestors in thoughts, words, deeds and actions from the beginning of our creation to the present, we ask your forgiveness … Let this cleanse, purify, release, cut all the negative memories, blocks, energies and vibrations and transmute these unwanted energies to pure light … And it is done.”

Below are some of the cleaning tools mentioned by Dr. Len and Dr. Joe Vitale, as well as new ideas mentioned in the wonderful Ho’oponopono Yahoo group.

Cleaning tools:

I’m sorry, please forgive me, I love you, Thank you – . The core of 4 phrases you say to bring you in the moment of Ho’oponopono or the modernized version Dr. Len calls Self-Identity through Ho’oponopono (SITH).

Eraser – Use a pencil with an eraser on the end and tap whatever you would like to Ho’oponpono. You can do this to sticky notes with names, phrases or situations on them. You can tap objects you’d like to clean. You can just use a nifty eraser you found and resonate with as well. Every time you think of it or pass this sticky or object in your travels, just tap it, say the phrases, infuse the eraser with the phrases. See the magic happen!

Blue Solar Water – Place tap water in a blue glass bottle in the sun for an hour (or an incandescent lamp). Your water is then pure, whole and healing. Blue solar water voids memories replaying problems in the Subconscious Mind. Drink it, clean with it, cook with it, rinse after a bath or shower, even add a drop to other water and it is entirely cleansed.

Strawberries & Blueberries – Dr. Len says that these two fruits have a cleansing effect on our memories. They void memories. Eat fresh or dried. Not only healthy for us to eat, but also good for the soul!

Picture of younger self – Have a picture of yourself as a little boy or girl. Tap it with the eraser tool idea, say the 4 phrases to your younger self and see what epiphanies come.

ICE Blue – Saying the phrase “ICE BLUE” is one phrase in Ho’oponopono that you can say and it is immediately healing and cleansing.

Mirror – Look at yourself, see who you really are, Love yourself again. A deep profound love comes from this. You see yourself as you really are, you see the world. You reach zero.

Seeing blue – whenever you see anything blue, remember Ho’oponopono and say the phrases, be in that moment. When my friend, France, came up with this idea I was very grateful! It works! I went to Stop & Shop and looked at the gum. Wrigley’s came out with a new gum that has a black package and a striking blue. The name: “Cobalt”! Just the same cobalt that many discuss as the blue color of choice for their blue solar water glass. Synchronicity abounds. Thanks France!

Ha Breathing – Dr. Len also states in a recording that just the “Ha” breathing can cure depression. Breath in while counting to 10 (1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10), but just as fast as you normally count, no need to go slow unless you want to. Then hold your breath in for a count of 10. Then let out your breath for a count of 10 (even happily sighing or “haaaa” if you want). Do this 10 times or however long you’d like. It’s a beautiful thing!

xxxooo – and don’t forget your x’s and o’s! (see below)

“Ho’oponopono impacts the AKASHIC Record on the collective SOUL LEVEL of all thoughts feelings and actions humans have ever made since the first moment of creation,” ~ Joe Vitale stated while speaking to a global tele-seminar student audience September 19th, 5PM PST


This is awesome!!! I just happened to come across this article while I was looking up EWOP (huna saying for Everything Works Out Perfectly) online for my Newsletter. And this is an EXCELLENT exercise for Ho’oponopono, because Huna incorporate the Family problem solving method of Ho’oponopono. Check it out!!!

Sample Huna

Ho’oponopono means to make right. Essentially, it means to make it right with the ancestors, or to make right with the people with whom you have relationships. We believe that the original purpose of Ho’oponopono was to correct the wrongs that had occurred in someone’s life including Hala (to miss the thing aimed for, or to err, to disobey) and Hewa (to go overboard or to do something to excess) which were illusions, and even ‘Ino (to do harm, implying to do harm to someone with hate in mind), even if accidental.

This description is by no means a complete training in how to do Ho’oponopono. While appropriate to do for yourself, for yours and others safety, it should not be done with someone else without training.

For example, let’s say your five-year-old grandson punched another five-year-old intentionally with hate in mind. If asked, then the one who was punched would forgive the other immediately, because it is inappropriate for anyone to carry guilt any longer than they had to, if it were not necessary.

We call this the Hawaiian Code of Forgiveness, and it’s an important thought, because when we forgive others, who are we forgiving? Ourselves, of course.

If you are familiar with Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), there is a saying, “People are only doing the best they can with the resources they have available.” If you’ve heard that before, it has to do with forgiveness. Think about it. As you do consider that you are included in “people.”

In the Eastern traditions, too, there is a real tradition of being aligned with and cleaning up relations with the ancestors. In Japan, China, as well as the Hawaiian tradition, it is thought to be important to align and clean up any past problems that you’ve had in relationships, especially with relatives.

At the same time, perhaps there are family patterns you do not want. Certainly you have heard the saying, “We just don’t do that in our family,” or “That’s the way it is in our family.” What happens then, is that certain generational themes get passed along in families, like sadness or any number of different traits. Ho’oponopono will allow you to clean this up.

THEORY: We carry inside us as parts of the Unconscious Mind, all the significant people in our lives. (These parts of us often look very much like Carl Jung’s archetypes.) Ho’oponopono makes it “all right” with them. The process of Ho’oponopono is to align with and clean up our genealogy as well as to clean up our relationships with other people in our lives.

The Process of Ho’oponopono:

Bring to mind anyone with whom you do not feel total alignment or support, etc.

In your mind’s eye, construct a small stage below you.

Imagine an infinite source of love and healing flowing from a source above the top of your head (from your Higher Self), and open up the top of your head, and let the source of love and healing flow down inside your body, fill up the body, and overflow out your heart to heal up the person on the stage. Be sure it is all right for you to heal the person and that they accept the healing.

When the healing is complete, have a discussion with the person and forgive them, and have them forgive you.

Next, let go of the person, and see them floating away. As they do, cut the aka cord that connects the two of you (if appropriate). If you are healing in a current primary relationship, then assimilate the person inside you.

Do this with every person in your life with whom you are incomplete, or not aligned.

The final test is, can you see the person or think of them without feeling any negative emotions. If you do feel negative emotions when you do, then do the process again.


The Spark is such a synchronicity for me because I noticed about two years ago that I could ‘see’ other people’s’ sparks within them. Their life essence. I was already well practiced in psychic awareness, gave readings and energy healing and this just seemed a higher level in awareness. I then started working with this in my healings (reiki, etc.) and noticed that I could also see the Aura of the person’s spark and what emotions, thoughts, messages may come through by this connection. I started calling it their Spark since that’s what it is to me!! Then coming back to Ho’oponopono this year and realizing this connects my ability to ‘see’ others’ Sparks with such divine merging/coming-togetherness that I know this is my path at a higher level!

Reiki & Ho’oponopono

In my healings I connect to the Spark of the participant and send messages of 100% perfect health physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually (as this is what they/we are: perfect, whole and complete now ) and also ‘receive’ whatever impressions that are given to me from Divinity. Since Ho’oponopono I am incorporating saying the 4 phrases and being in that vibration during healings. I use all of the energies I have been attuned to in combination with Ho’oponopono and it just feels stronger, higher, lighter, yet deeper. As I evolve, this way will evolve. It’s all very divine and magical!

My experiences so far…

Ho’oponopono packs a punch and you don’t even realize it’s happening till you sit back after a whirlwind and then it hits you! Once you start, the changes commence. They can be heart-wrenching, frustrating, unhappy, depressing or joyful and BLISSFUL! (The end result of course obtaining more and more blissful states of being and allowing.) They can be subtle or in your face, they are fast, they are incredible! This is amazing!!! It truly gets you to Zero in EVERY moment the more you wake up to its possibilities! Just saying the phrases to anyone, anything, any emotion wakes you up and frees you to just be. The art of allowing is my most recent lesson. I have noticed that no matter what is going on, even if it’s not to my expectations, I remind myself to be in the NOW, allow, breath and Ho’oponopono/erase/clean clean clean. Clarity comes.

I am noticing true changes not only in myself but in those around me (the ones I Ho’oponopono mostly and some that I don’t).

Ho’oponopono, Me & Reiki: As I explained above when I turn the “reiki on” I now include Ho’oponopono with it. This truly packs a significant punch to what I am reiki’g. I’ve also noticed without even putting out a request for it many more Web Site design requests. I had been letting that part of my passion wait till I completed other projects (like this website) but then BOOM the Universe told me (with the requests it sent my way) that I am to get started now! Amazing! I feel lighter, happier and my energies in connecting with my Angels are stronger. Even writing this article I feel that special energy hug from them very strong as they channel anything they want me to say and include. I’ve also noticed more classes just ‘coming’ to me and my services have expanded too! This after starting Ho’oponopono and being at Zero to receive Divine inspiration and TAKING ACTION on it!

I’m hearing wonderful things about Ho’oponopono & EFT! Such as the links I have at the bottom of this article. It seems that Ho’oponopono works awesome with other healing techniques. Do what feels best for you!

Those around me: 1. My husband has always been open minded! One of the many reasons I married him. He has been trying to get his Web Design business to flourish in such a way that things flow smoothly. It had its challenges. However, I began tapping him and this intention for prosperity & happiness (the eraser tool). I intended for him to be happy no matter what is happening and prosperous. Suddenly more epiphany’s are coming his way. He is letting go moreso again in his daily decisions. And just today he decided he would receive work with little or no effort (so there is no trying or doing) and once he made that decision a call came in for a web site request! He then started listening to the Zero Limits Audiobook I gave him and is seeing more results since startinig Ho’oponopono himself. I’m so happy! woohoo!

2. People around me are starting to question themselves and how they are living, working or being. They are becoming more aware and awake. Like the tuning fork idea Joe Vitale speaks about or the G-String Theory by Ilana Marks (a tremendous woman with wonderful insights and abilities), that those around me are starting to vibrate at a matching rate/frequency as I am.

xxx’s and ooo’

In seeing an “x” in the sky today I received the inspiration about what x’s and o’s mean to me.

When my cute munchkin-butt baby woke up to get a bottle just after dusk set in, I decided to walk outside on my deck briefly and looked up to a beautiful very clean blue nightsky with a very big “X” in the sky. I knew this was another sign and synchronicity to articulate what x’s and o’s have come to mean for me and how you can spread the word with just those two letters as well!

x’s to clean , clear and erase , send love and transmutation ! o is the state of nothingness/zero . One leads to the other. x is love and erasing/transmuting/Ho’oponopono all in one. o is the state of zero, the state where you receive inspiration from Dinity/God and take action from those messages, the ultimate state of being. Just being…Be…

x = Love/Ho’oponopono

o = Zero/Divinity

” To be done with memories once and for all, they must be cleansed to nothing once and for all. ” ~ Dr. Len

So I ” x ” to ” o “! I Ho’oponopono/Love to reach Zero/Being ! I hope you enjoyed this article and it was insightful! I leave you with one last comment: There are so many Ways! So many different ways to elevate your soul. Follow what feels right to you. That is the best Way for you! And know that all Ways lead to the same! Contact me anytime with comments and questions!
