The Ho'oponopono meditation or prayer is a Hawaiian practice for reconciliation and forgiveness.
This prayer consists of four phrases:
I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. I love you.
To turn this into a meditation, repeat these four phrases over and over again throughout your day. Repeat them when you're walking, driving, cooking, and going about your daily tasks. Do this for 1 week and see what shifts you notice.
I'm sorry. Please forgive me.
Sometimes we seek forgiveness from others and sometimes, we need to forgive ourselves. Most often, it's a mix of both. When you are aware that you are replaying an argument you had with someone, or that you are in a state of hurt, criticism, complaint or blame, you can refocus your thoughts by repeating, "I'm sorry. Please forgive me." until a sense of peace is felt within you.
"Thank you. I love you."
As you feel peace enter your body, you can respond by saying "Thank you. I love you." You are thanking the gift of being aware of your negative thought or relief that comes when you chose to apologize for it. The love is the appreciation for choosing to let go of your negative thought and embrace clearing it from your mind.
According to the teachings of Ho’oponopono, you are responsible for your experience. Everything you see, think, notice, hear and feel is a creation of your own mind. All your reactions and interpretations are of your making, based in memories from the past.
You can't re-write past events in your life but you change your experience of previous events and create new possibility for the future.
