Ho’o Pono Pono is a very powerful, life-transforming meditation which originated in Hawaii and was brought into its current form by a healer, Morrnah Nalamaku Simeona.

The original form of Ho'oponopono required a mediator, usually a qualified practitioner, to be present to guide the healing process which was often a group of people interacting with one another under the guidance of the mediator facilitating the healing process.

Mornah is responsible for updating Ho'oponopono so that it no longer requires the presence of a practitioner or anyone else but the person doing the healing work.

Even though Mornah updated the healing process, it remained in Hawaii until Dr. Joe Vitale, a well-known speaker, writer, and internet marketer, wrote a book entitled "Zero Limits" in 2007. Dr. Vitale wrote the book with the help of Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len. Dr. Hew Len, as he is more commonly known, was a staff psychologist at the Hawaii State Hospital and is responsible for healing an enitre ward of criminally insane patients.

Dr. Hew Len was Mornah Simeone's most prized student of her new teachings and was the first to document and confirm proof that the new form of Ho'oponopono did indeed work as intended. Dr. Hew Len saw first hand how the healing powers of Ho'oponopono worked to heal his daughter of shingles when nothing and no one else was able to do so. He stayed with Mornah and completed his training with her even though as a traditionally trained doctor, he was a bit skeptical when ("...she was talking to spirits and sounding nuts!... - Zero Limits, page 42). He studied with Mornah until her death in 1992 at which time he continued working with Ho'oponopono improving it and simplifying it even further.

Dr. Hew Len is probably best known for his work at the Hawaii State Hospital as a staff psychologist overseeing the ward for the criminally insane. Now this ward contained the worst of the worst. It was so bad that the inmates had to be chained and shackled even amongst themselves due to their violent nature. The hospital had a hard time maintaining a full staff due to this ward and the fear it created throughout the hospital. Dr. Hew Len worked with the criminally insane from 1984 until 1987 when the ward was closed because it was no longer necessary; the patients had all been healed. How? How could an entire ward of violent patients be healed? The answer.... Ho'oponopono. Dr. Hew Len applied the Ho'oponopono techniques he had developed and without ever seeing a single patient face to face, healed the entire ward. When asked how he healed an entire ward of patients, Dr. Hew Len replied, "I did not heal them, I healed the part of myself that created them."

This healing was all documented and described by numerous people witnessing his work as well as personell working at the hospital. What makes this even more amazing is that Dr. Hew Len did not see any of the patients face to face, nor did he participate in any staff meetings. He simply went to the hospital every day and practiced the updated Ho'oponopono, accepting 100% responsibility for everything that was happening with the patients and being experienced by himself.

And therein is the biggest revelation regarding Ho'oponopono; that we are all 100% responsible for everything. Everything everywhere! To get a better understanding of how this can be, download my free report, The Three Minds.

Please understand that Ho'oponopono is not a free ride for a guilt trip. Accepting 100% responsibility is not a replacement for feeling guilty, rather, it is a reminder to trust your creative powers and return to your inner self, or inner nature. A return to Zero, if you will. In Dr. Joe Vitale's great book, Zero Limits, he reminds us that when we return to our inner-most nature, to Zero, everything is Divinely inspired and becomes available to us without effort. We are no longer driven by our petty ego wants and needs. When you think about it, most needs are truly not needs anyway, now are they?

The Zero referred to in Ho'oponopono is the same thing that Eckhart Tolle refers to as the Unmanifested, or as Ein Sof Aur in the Kabbalah, or as some others call it, the Zero Point Field, or, Nothing, the Void.

So, the trick lies in getting back to Zero, or that magical state of being driven by that Divine Spirit of our Creator; how do we get there? We get there through practicing a constant and consistent cleaning process. Perhaps the best news of all is that the Ho'oponopono cleaning process is extremely simple, for example, it consists of repeating the following four statements:

I Love You

I Apologize (or I'm Sorry)

Please Forgive Me

Thank You

Yes, it truly is that simple. Again, I suggest you read my free report about The Three Minds to get a better understanding of why it works, although it is not necessary - Ho'oponopono will work regardless of whether you understand it or not.

The more you do this, the more you will begin to see changes in your life and eventually, you will feel the changes taking place. When something comes into your awareness, regardless of what it is, just repeat the four statements and do the cleaning. This, in essence, is turning it all over to the Creator.

Thank you for taking the time to learn a little bit about Ho'oponopono and I hope you continue this. If you would like to 'jump start' your life in this direction, I implore you to check out my Ho'oponopono meditation CD. On this CD I lead a guided meditation that walks you through a cord cutting technique. As you will learn in The Three Minds, anyone you come in contact with, you are connected with for the rest of your life, or until you cut the Aka cords.

Thank you for being you.
