How Can We Heal Our Memories?

“I’m sorry, forgive me, thank you, I love you.”

Ho’oponopono is an ancient Hawaiian healing practice that traditionally was invoked “to make right, establish harmony, correct what is wrong, and restore things to order.”

When individuals had disagreements, or relational problems appeared in a community, everyone gathered in the presence of all parties and there, under the guidance of a kahuna (priest), all were granted forgiveness.

“I’m sorry, forgive me, thank you, I love you.”
– Healing mantra at the heart of Ho’oponopono practice

The healing practice of Ho’opononpono teaches us to cleanse our consciousness of negative memories, unconscious fears, and dysfunctional programming, and thus grant forgiveness, peace, and love. It is a process of atonement and reconciliation that can be practiced by oneself, among individuals of the same family or community, or even strangers.
