Ho'oponopono Revisted

While in my morning meditation time, I had a huge insight that needs to be shared. The biggest obstacles to our own personal freedom and abundance are ourselves. Often, we visualize the problem as being outside ourselves. We keep ourselves separate, and separation creates blocks. The power of Ho'oponopono comes from the fact this sort of prayer breaks down the barriers that come between us, enabling energy to flow freely once again.

I was using a meditation I go to periodically by one of my favorite spiritual gurus, Wayne Dyer, called "Getting In The Gap." It takes you through a process of going through the first few phrases of the Lord's prayer and having you focus on the space between the words. In past, I have had some amazing insights using this process. This time was no exception.

Toward the end of my meditation while I was in the gap, I noticed something I had not noticed before. The people I see as having all the power (who I also consider to be evil incarnate) were placed off to the side, seemingly surrounded by some insulated bubble. It was a separation, designed to protect me and keep the evil from me.

What I began to understand about this separation is, as long as it is in place, I am not taking responsibility for the negative aspects of myself. I am not allowing the loving part to infiltrate this darkness and heal it. Without healing, the darkness will continue to fester and disrupt my life and the lives of those around me.

I immediately went into Ho'oponopono prayer. This is an ancient Hawaiian form of prayer comprised of four different parts: I'm sorry, please forgive me, thank you, and I love you. It is designed to get a person to take responsibility for what happens and resolve the blocked energies that occur between parties. As I focused on this separation with this prayer, I could feel the barrier begin to get smaller. While I can't say it is all gone, I now know this is a problem I need to continue to work on. Hopefully, one day in the near future I will be able to totally remove this barrier and allow myself to heal all those hurt places in myself. (You can read more in depth about Ho'oponopono prayer here.)

The more we are able to take responsibility for all that IS, the closer we come to healing the ourselves and changing the face of this planet. Are you ready to heal and be healed? Are you ready to forgive? Ho'oponopono can help give us that opportunity.
