Four Simple Phrases

Posted by on Mar 16, 2015

hawaii-90931_1280-squareWith these four simple phrases (a total of 10 words) a doctor in Hawaii emptied a criminally insane ward.  These same phrases and words have been used to instantly improve relationships, heal medical conditions, bring peace, and relieve feelings of guilt.

What are these 10 words?  What are the phrases?  They are:  “I love you.  I’m sorry.  Please forgive me.  Thank you.”  Who was the doctor?  He is Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len.  What is this technique called?  “Ho’oponopono.”

Ho’oponopono is an ancient Hawaiian practice used to restore right relationships between those who have been wronged and the offender who committed the act.  Dr. Len modified it as a healing tool for whatever he saw in others which irritated or annoyed him.  As he prayed this for each inmate who was in his ward, the inmates began to change.  Eventually, some were released, some were reassigned to general population, and some had their medications reduced or eliminated.  As Dr. Len addressed whatever aspect of the inmate that was within Dr. Len, not only was Dr. Len healed of that aspect, so was the inmate.  This is how he emptied the ward!  You can read more about this in Dr. Joe Vitale’s book, Zero Limits.

Often I am irritated by others because I see something in them that bothers me.  The unspoken truth is I see it so clearly in them because I have it in me.  This is why Jesus told us to take care of the plank (or board) in our own eye before we get upset about the speck in our neighbor’s eye.  Could it be the neighbor has a speck so I can address the plank in my eye?  Could it be the speck in my neighbor’s eye is just a reflection of the plank in my own eye?  Either way. when Dr. Len used ho’oponopono he used it to take care of what was in himself.  As he did so, the person who also had the same issue was healed of the issue.

Using ho’oponopono when I am irritated by others’ actions is a practice of taking total responsibility for what is going on around me.  The Law of Attraction says that I am attracting to me people, situations, and circumstances that respond or resonate with the predominate emotion or feeling I am sending out.  As an example, if I am surrounded by aggressive, hostile, or angry people there is a good chance that I am sending out aggression, hostility, and anger because I feel aggressive, hostile and angry.  To apply ho’oponopono I would pray to God -” I love you.  I am sorry (for acting aggressively, hostile, and angry).  Please forgive me (for whatever my involvement is in leading to the hostility, anger, and aggression in those around me).  Thank you (for your forgiveness and for healing the anger, hostility, and aggression within me).”  I would repeat the four phrases as many times as it takes until I feel a shift or change in me.

There are many other ways to use ho’oponopono as well.  Our outer world is a reflection of our inner world. As I clean up or receive healing for my inner world the outer world around me will change.  My job is not to clean up the world around me.  My job is to clean up my inner world, the world where Jesus said “the kingdom of God is within you.”  As I address inside of me those areas where I am falling short I am removing from the world a little bit of those “falling short” areas.  As I do that I enable my light to shine brighter and allow others to shine their lights as well.  I no longer am contributing to someone else’s shortcomings because I have addressed my own.
