I had a very beautiful soul visit me for a reiki session recently. He was a french man named Marco. His energy was simply magnificent. He was radiating pure joy it seemed. And this was before the reiki session commenced! After the session was over, we somehow ended up discussing mantras. Marco explained to me that he's practiced almost every mantra known to man... and nothing compares to the Ho'oponopono Hawaiian Mantra. He explained that this ancient Hawaiian mantra has been absolutely life changing for him. Every time he feels bad about anything he just starts reciting this Hawaiian mantra and everything magically gets better. I told him that I was not familiar with this mantra but I became very curious and decided that I needed to investigate further.
Ofcourse after Marco left I immediately typed Ho'oponopono Hawaiian Mantra into google search. The result was ridiculously simple. I couldn't help but wonder if I was missing something. The Ho'oponopono Hawaiian Mantra translates in english as “I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.” Too simple! “Could this really be it?”, I thought. So I decided to try it. I started saying the mantra out loud. Then I started saying it in my head. I did this for a few days but felt nothing. I was hoping for a miraculous breakthrough, but the words didn't have much of an effect on me...at least not consciously. There was no emotion behind these words. That was the problem I'm sure. But I wasn't feeling emotional and so I couldn't force it.
While I was in the midst of practicing this simple Hawaiian mantra once or twice daily, I also started reading a great spiritual book called “The SuperBeings” and another book about ancient Egyptian Qigong. I also started dabbling in meditation with shungite and soapstone harmonizers as well as practicing the Qigong that I was reading about. Yes, I do tend to overdo things at times! But I was being guided to all of this. And for some reason something started happening... I know that the shungite and soapstone harmonizers were doing something to open me up. I felt it immediately when I first started using them. And yes, I will definitely have to write an article specifically about shungite (and soapstone) very soon as I've been experimenting with the amazing benefits of shungite for a good minute. Then the Egyptian Qigong started taking effect. I had only practiced one pose for approx 2-3 minutes but something was changing. Everything I was doing seemed to be working simultaneously to help me evolve further.
The next morning after practicing my first ancient Egyptian Qigong Posture and meditating with the harmonizers, I got in my car and drove to the bank to make a bank deposit. As I was driving back from the bank the emotional breakthrough began. I had a flashback to a time years ago when I was driving my flashy yellow sports car down a huge boulevard in Queens NY. I think it was Queens Blvd, actually nicknamed the boulevard of death because so many people have been run over trying to cross this boulevard. Pretty terrible! But back to me driving down this boulevard. I was driving pretty fast. I looked to my left and I saw a cat getting ready to run across the street. So I stepped on the gas even harder thinking I would get out of the cat's way. But I was wrong...oh was I so wrong. I should've just slowed down. But I was not thinking properly. And then I heard a huge thump as the body of this cat got run over by my wheel. I was horrified and at the same time I was in a hurry to get somewhere so I didn't stop. Anyway...I murdered this poor cat and I've been carrying this pain and heartache and guilt with me for many years.
Tears were running down my face as I envisioned the whole terrible scene. I thought to myself, “Stop thinking about this cat. You are making yourself very upset. This is not productive.” Then something said to me... “No! No, you are supposed to be thinking about this cat!” “Now is the time...do it now.” And so at that moment I knew what had to be done! Tears rolling down my face... so much sadness. So much guilt. I started to say out loud,
“I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.” Oh my! I get it. I feel it now. I really do feel it now. This was exactly what I needed. I needed to feel forgiveness for what I had done to this poor cat. I was beginning to feel relief. A burden was being lifted from me. I was having the breakthrough that I had been waiting for.
I decided to take it one step further. Still crying, I parked my car and walked over to the back of my building where I sat on a piece of elevated concrete with my feet on the grass. I was wearing my earthing shoes which pick up the earth's energy and help ground me. I was guided to send reiki distance healing to this cat that I had so terribly murdered many many years ago. I told this cat that I was sorry and asked for it's forgiveness. It was a beautiful and inspiring distance healing session. The burden had been released from my heart.
But back to the Ho'oponopono Hawaiian Mantra, “I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.” It's so simple yet so powerful. We've all done things that we feel bad about. We all feel guilt, remorse, sadness, regret. But these feelings are not meant to stay with us. They weight us down. It's important to release these negative feelings otherwise they end up poisoning our consciousness, slowing down our spiritual progress and sometimes even making us physically sick. If you want to evolve consciously you must let these negative feelings go. The Ho'oponopono Hawaiian Mantra does just that. It helps you release these negative thoughts and feelings. I recommend giving it a try. Say it out loud or say it in your mind everyday when you have a spare moment... eventually you too will have your breakthrough... perhaps breakthroughs! If you try this mantra and have a unique experience please feel free to share this experience in the comments section below. Til next time... Peace and Blessings!
