Heal with Ho’oponopono



Ho’oponopono – is an ancient Hawaiian practice of forgiveness and reconciliation to help us release unwanted feelings and gradually clear dis-ease from the body as well as improve the overall quality of our life.

Causes of Negativity or Disease: Fears and negative emotions could have been carried in the mind since previous births, past experiences, unhappy memories, pain or abuse faced in this lifetime and in some cases ancestral karma. These may have resulted in an ongoing thought-process which turned into negative self-talk and even unhealthy talk of others or the world. Unhealthy vibration frequencies emitted by us had manifested negative life experiences based on the same unhealthy pattern. Thankfully you can heal everything starting right now!

Here are some simple ways you can enjoy healing with Ho’oponopono:

The word “Ho’oponopono” literally means “to make right”. Its like a second chance you are giving to yourself through a gentle repetition of four beautiful phrases. “I’m Sorry. Please forgive me. I Love You. Thank You.” This is what I feel the phrases really mean in the forgiveness context.

I’m sorry – I could not understand why I feel this pain or anger, 

Please forgive me – if I knowingly or unknowingly hurt you,

I love you – because you are inspiring my spiritual breakthrough,

Thank You – for helping me gain this breakthrough and realize this lesson in love


Sing these lines in a musical tune, dance as you speak – just let your heart be your compass… Simple, isn’t it?

The following Ho’oponopono prayer is also very beneficial for those seeking forgiveness and clearance of ancestral karma by healing our relationship with the higher-self or universe. “Divine Creator, if I, my family, relatives and ancestors have offended you, your family, relatives and ancestors in thoughts, words, deeds or actions since the beginning of creation until the present – I seek forgiveness. Let this cut, release, cleanse, purify all negative thoughts, memories, blocks and vibrations and transmute this unwanted energies into pure light, for the highest good of all. So it is. So it is. So it is.”


To make this method part of your daily ritual sit in a comfortable position and meditate. Speak to yourself or visualize you are speaking to the person with whom healing is needed, and send the words “I’m Sorry. Please forgive me. I Love You. Thank You”. This will help you release your negative energies and transform your experiences into a positive one.

Let the tears flow, express and free yourself from your anger if you feel any but keep repeating the four lines until you find peace. Repeat this exercise until you find closure and this experience gives you answers or insight to your karmic lesson. You can also repeat these lines while you’re walking, after you wakeup or sleep, while commuting or whenever you feel the stream of painful thoughts. This exercise can also be said in times of joy in gratitude to the universal abundance coming your way.


The Ho’oponopono has been a tradition in many South Pacific communities  and many parts around the world where it has brought separated families, friends and lovers together once more to experience the divinity of their bonds. Its a great group therapy tool and is an alternative healing adding on to many spiritual practices including individual or family counselling. This practice can be used to bring respite to the ill, the aged, for curing pets, of plants, cleansing the aura of spaces, for enhancing prosperity, for finding true love and just about anything. Most of all you can use it for healing yourself, to forgive and love yourself!


Just BE in the space of forgiveness, love & gratitude with Ho’oponopono and watch your world heal!

  1. Hello,

    I would like to tell about ho’oponopono, Dr. Hew Len and about Morrnah Simeona.

    The Mantra “i love you, please forgive you, im sorry, thank you.” is not ho’oponopono and is not hawaiian. Dr. Hew Len never healed with a mantra “i love you, please forgive you, im sorry, thank you.” in Hawaii State Hospital. This Mantra was developed by Dr. Hew Len after Morrnah Simeonas death and its not ho’oponopono and not hawaiian.

    Morrnah Simeona (1913 – 1992) was a native hawaiian kahuna. She adapted the traditional Ho’oponopono to today’s times and realities. She has developed a 14-step Ho’oponopono-process. Everyone can learn and use this process. This is a modern version of the traditional Ho’oponopono process. Morrnah has founded the “Pacifica Seminars” in the 1970s and then the “Foundation of I” to spread her 14-step ho’oponopono around the world. She made it possible for all people to solve their problems with her 14-Step Ho’oponopono.
    In September 1990, Morrnah and Yvette Mauri founded “Pacifica Seminars” in Germany (see http://www.pacificaseminars.de). Pacifica Seminars Europe is the only organization in Europe, where you can learn Morrnah’s original Ho’oponopono-process today, that was developed by Morrnah.

    Morrnah Simeona was the teacher of Michael Micklei and Dr. Hew Len. Michael Micklei worked closely with Morrnah around 5 years together. Morrnah lived in Michael Mickleis and Yvettes home in Germany until she passed away in 1992. Michael Micklei translated Morrnah’s 14-step ho’oponopono to german. He has been authorized to do so by Morrnah Simeona.
    Michael Micklei knows Dr. Hew Len already at the time, while Dr. Hew Len worked in the Hawaii state Hospital in the 1980s. Michael Micklei and Dr. Hew Len gave togehter Ho’oponopono seminars (at that time Morrnah was still alive). In the seminars were teached only the 14-step ho’oponopono process of Morrnah Simeona. Never a mantra.

    Michael Micklei wrote in a comment to an another person:

    Dr. Len never healed in the mentioned hospital by only saying over and over “I love you” and “Thank you” to the “I”, Morrnahs word for the Source, for Divinity. Instead he used Morrnahs 12 (or 14) step process only, twice or three times a day. Every day he walked through the hospital he looked carefully to the patients, the doctors, his feelings. He taped this. And asked Divinity to heal his karmic bondages with these persons and matters. A hard job for three years. Divinity accepted the plea and healed. 2 persons were not healed, as there were no karmic bondages with Dr. Len.

    Morrnah gave him this kind of order to do so (and at that time he worked really for the good to help Morrnah for her special spiritual job) and in classes, we both attended between Nov. 86 and later, Dr. Len was always telling in detail at the beginning that he was doing exactly this, nothing else. NO mantra was mentioned, never. At that time, Dr. Len was a student of Morrnah like me, so why and how could he use a quite different way in the hospital – and at the weekend in classes he said the opposite? Morrnah was also complex clairvoyant, she could see and hear everything.

    All so called tools of Dr. Len (except 2 or 3) were developped by Dr. Len after 1992, which are only temporarily harmonizing or calming down – NOT cleansing, NOT being any ho’oponopono, as they are not mutual. They are (powerful) magic tools. They are not bad in itsself, but they block people to learn authentic ho’oponoponos – traditional ones or the one of Morrnah. People like those easy magic ways, they really think to heal karmic stuff of hundreds and more reincarnations by 11 words.

    It is clearly the good part of Joe Vitale’s job to spread the name of ho’oponopono from the time of “Zero limits” across the world – but the illusion is inclusive: people know the name, but did not hear about the real content of ho’oponopono or even forget it. Pls keep in mind Dr. Len’s words (received by his divinity) in Zero Limits: “I’ve been told to kill the Divine to be home.” To kill the Divine? Well, starting to take him out from the cleansing. This does not seem a path up to the mountain.
    mahalo for sharing.”

    Dr. Hew Len does not speak anymore about Morrnah’s 14-step Ho’oponopono today and about the healings of his patients in Hawaii State Hospital with Morrnah’s Ho’oponopono.
    Nobody talks about Morrnah’s 14-step Ho’oponopono today. Morrnah’s Ho’oponopono is no longer known to anyone today. I really hope that Morrnah’s original Ho’oponopono-process regains fame among the people.
    I know Morrnah’s Ho’oponopono and would highly recommend it. So many things in my life have changed positively trough Morrnah’s Ho’oponopono.

    I can only say, steer clear of Dr. Hew Lens 4-phrase mantra and of Dr. Hew Lens cleaning tools!

    Michael Micklei has written a report about Dr. Hew Len and the healings in Hawaii State Hospital that happend with Morrnah’s 14-step Ho’oponopono. Please let me share this link (is only in german language, please use Google tanslator to translate to your language):

    As far as I know, Morrnah has been working hard on her 14-step ho’oponopono process for many, many years. Morrnah Simeona completed the final version of her 14-step Ho’oponopono process in 1991. It is the final version today. Pacifica Seminars teach this final version of Morrnah’s Ho’oponopono in seminars and in a book.

    Please share this information to another people 🙂

    Aloha and kind regards

    1. This is good for information and I am aware of this… However I believe the author has focused on those more popular aspects of modern adaptation that touches hearts and helps from within so we would not advise to ‘steer clear’ of positive affirmations and loving forgiveness. We wished to focus not on very technical and strict trademarked techniques but simplicity so that people can research more and learn deeper skills.
