A Bold Technique That Creates Miracles

Hawaiian Teachings of Ho’oponopono: Ancient Healing Technique

Dr. Hew Len, PhD is a psychologist who healed all of the criminally insane in a mental hospital in Hawaii without seeing a single patient.

After reading their charts he would repeat the four lines to “The Divine.”
I love you. I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. After Dr. Len healed the patients that ward of the hospital was closed.

Problems that show up in our minds are replayed memories of our past. The Ho’oponopono method erases toxic thoughts and painful memories.

This method requires us to believe all problems begin with “me.” I have to take 100% responsibility for or having a problem or situation in my life.

“I am sorry for the erroneous thoughts within me that have caused the problem for me and for ____________. (fill in the blank with name of person you would normally blame for the problem.)”-Dr. Len

When we own the problem and repeat the four lines our despair in the situation turns to love. Love creates miracles.

There is no need to worry or focus on the situation or other person because when I cleanse our own thoughts the other will heal as I heal myself.

Again the main component of Ho’oponopono is if the issue or problem person is in my experience I am responsible.

I have been using this method with my family, friends and and neighbors. I have used it with situations such as the war, the economy, my aging parents and their ailments.

When my daughter is angry at me I repeat the four lines. When I disagree with someone I repeat the four lines. When someone cuts me off in traffic, I repeat the four lines. When I don’t have enough knowledge to make my blog a success I repeat the four lines. When I don’t get Twitter I repeat the four lines.

Doing this cleanses my mind. I will then be in a place where I can be inspired by God, the Divine, or the Universe.

Dr. Len says you can repeat the lines to animals, your body, and innate objects. For example before a workshop he will say them in relationship to the room and the chairs. It cleans or clears the air.

By now you get the picture: I love you. I’m sorry. Forgive me. Thank you. Say it repeatedly throughout your waking hours. Your miracles await you!

You will experience wonder in every moment.
Your level of love for yourself will go to a new level.
Your experience of love for the world will be profound.

    Hi Tess .. that was wonderful .. fantastic video, pictures and embedded words .. let alone the actual meaning of the words. I’ll definitely use those phrases during each and every day - building them into my psyche .. and using them all the time.

    Great - love it ..
    Thanks - Hilary Melton-Butcher

    Hi, Tess,

    This is the most beautiful and simplest technique I’ve ever come across (thank you!) for putting me right into the state of being gratefully humble. It’s an excellent place to be. ~ Julie :)

    What a wonderful breath of the freshest air imaginable.

    Ahhhh, thank you. I love you. Forgive me (for I know I shall sin, and probably soon. Very soon, knowing me. I’m sorry.)

    Thank you again!

    Great minds think on the same channel. I’m glad it was helpful. It is simple and powerful. Easy to remember.

    Again I’m laughing out loud. Your the best and I’ll be sinning right beside you!


    Yes it’s true about ACIM. And thanks for you compliments. Coming from you they mean a lot to me.

    Excellent article. I haven’t heard of this method before and it seems to be powerful. It reminds me of filling one’s self with a heart of gratitude. Being truly and deeply thankful for all things in your life and voicing your thanks out loud. Sort of like an incantation. It really changes your whole disposition towards yourself and others. I do this often, especially if I feel as though a less than desirable mood may be trying to take hold. It really works!

    Thank again, Tess, for a great article. I sincerely mean that. :-)

    Hi Tess. This brings thoughts of respect, compassion and humility to me — a recipe for miracles perhaps? The music was just what I needed to hear too. I’m off to dreamland in the next few minutes and this was a nice way to break away. Thank you.

    I like the approach! Everything should start with ME. owning the problem/situation is a proven method of avoiding the non-productive blame wars and getting on track to better future, the solution.
    Liked it!

    Congratulations on getting the video up!! I wanted to post this before I go and watch it.

    I’m glad you shared the power of these lines. These are the prayers I pray every morning and night and the only ones I have taught my children. To anyone who’s reading, there’s no need to think about it, try it, look into it or even work hard. Say and believe them now, as you’re reading and miracles will happen. Don’t forget this post when you move on to read another one. I completely and utterly agree with Tess - these are a living prayer and they work!!! I’ve seen it in my own life and in the lives of anyone I’ve ever had the privilege of helping or working with.

    Thank you, Tess. This post was meant to arrive in my box today - a gift from the universe, perfectly planned. It wouldn’t have had the same impact yesterday ;)

    Tess, I’ve had a very difficult week and have been dealing with some very painful issues in my home life. This prayer is a blessing for me right now. Thank you for sharing it.

    That story about the hospital ward closing was just amazing. And the mantra is so simple. I don’t know if I’m reading too much into this but I have felt that your past few comments on my blog have been different - full of calm, positive energy and very strong and affirming. Maybe it’s from this practice? Wow.

    This was a very interesting post. I had not heard of Ho’oponopono before, but I like the idea. I think you summed it up when you said, “…because when I cleanse our own thoughts the other will heal as I heal myself.”

    I said the four lines and they’re so easy. I will try them when I’m frustrated with someone or a situation. As I’ll soon be flying back to the States and dealing with airlines, I imagine I’ll be saying the 4 lines FREQUENTLY.

    Thanks for this post:~)

    It’s so true about gratitude. I’ve had gratitude journals for 7 years and believe abundance is mine because of it. This takes it 3 steps further. I like your personal beliefs and your blog. I can relate.

    And what can be more powerful than compassion, humility and respect? I’m sure you’ve had the sweetest dreams!

    You and me both. Learning is the only way to grow and like you I want to continue growing until I die!

    Non-productive blame wars. I never heard it in those terms. Coming from you it shouldn’t surprise me. I appreciate your input and couldn’t agree with you more!

    Thanks so much for the affirmations! That is why your blog and coaching are successful. Your are wise, committed and ready and willing to do what it takes. And these four lines are part of what it takes. And of course you use them!

    Chaina girl,

    I’m so happy I could help you in your difficult times. You are bright and sincere. What ever you are going through you will come out on top and better because of it.
    I have all the faith of the world in you!

    Hey Tess, good stuff indeed. Brad Yates has a tapping video on Yourtube where he combines Ho’oponopono with EFT. It’s very powerful.

    This is so very true. ” Problems that show up in our minds are replayed memories of our past.” This realization aloen helps us accept what is and heal. Good work thanks for the lift.

    Great article.

    “This method requires us to believe all problems begin with “me.” I have to take 100% responsibility for or having a problem or situation in my life.”

    Accepting this can be difficult, for if we accept it, we are responsible, and if we’re responsible, we have to do something about it. Moreover, its also extremely liberating and powerful!

    I have an instant reply machine in my mind, also known as a resentment machine.
