“The Ho’oponopono process…used to clean and ‘reset‘ the mind, leaving it free and open to the positive influences that are constantly being sent to it from the Divine Universal Consciousness.”
Paul Jackson, Author of Ho’opono pono Secrets
Update: 9/25/18 What the Heck is Ho’oponopono? by Betty Phillips, Ph.D
“Ho’oponopono consists of four phrases: “I am sorry. Please forgive me. I love you. Thank you.” Why would you start out “I am sorry; Please forgive me” when you need to forgive someone else for a transgression against you? Ho’oponopono teachers call this practice “cleaning,” you clean yourself of your own negative feelings to erase from your memory or consciousness whatever negativity is not working for you. You are expressing the fact that you no longer wish to suffer from a current or past problem. In this kind of situation it is normal to want the other person to change. A normal response, yes, but impossible! The only person you can change is yourself. Furthermore, in a two-person situation you will have played some role in the relationship problem even if it’s just a victim. You will be using Ho’oponopono to obtain forgiveness for yourself: forgiveness for whatever is within you that helped to create the problem.
The next two phrases are “Thank you. I love you.” The “you” could be yourself, the other person and/or the Divine. Conjuring up gratitude and love will help you anchor into a heart-based response. The mind by itself is never able to solve negativity and distress, whereas the heart is the repository of positive emotions. Feelings of self acceptance and self love are increased during this process. Ho’oponopono is also a mindfulness technique helping you to live in the present, not in the distressing past.”

FunZen Girl, Grace Rolek’s Viewing Point:
If you don’t control your emotions, they will control you. Being a teenager (17 years of age) there is a lot going on, and sometimes I don’t mean to be disrespectful or dismissive, but sometimes it happens anyway. Sometimes I get stubborn, and distracted, and then stubborn about the fact that I am distracted. When I tell my mom that we’re going to work on something, but I’m not actually ready, it can cause a conflict between myself and her commitment to the right effort. This struggle between us can get unpleasant, and it disappoints and discourages my mom to see time that could be used constructively dwindle away. But, after a little bit, the storm will pass, because my mom and I know how to use our tools to create harmony. We will say our H’oponopono mantra, I love you, I’m sorry, Please forgive me, Thank you, and let it absorb and release the negative emotions to transform them into loving vibes, keeping happy-calm to sparkle on and go from a worrier to a warrior.

“Over time I realized that this “cleansing” takes place in three stages. First we must open our hearts; then, we welcome “what is” with love. Finally, we have to learn to let go of the veil, stop clinging, and trust in the God we all carry within ourselves.” Marie-Elisa Hurtado-Graciet from The Book of Ho’oponopono The Hawaiian Practice of Forgiveness and Healing
The Ho’oponopono Phrase: “I’m sorry, forgive me, thank you, I love you.” You can say it out loud or quietly to yourself.
What do these words mean? “I’m sorry” is acknowledgment that I created whatever pain I’ve caused or errors I’ve made. “Forgive me,” because I did not know I had that inside me. “Thank you,” for allowing me to release and cleanse this memory. “I love you,” my inner divinity, meaning, “I love me.” Luc Bodin, M.D., Nathalie Bodin Lamboy, and Jean Graciet from The Book of Ho’oponopono The Hawaiian Practice of Forgiveness and Healing

What do these words mean? from At Zero, The Quest For Miracles Through Ho’oponopono by Dr. Joe Vitale
“Ho’o means to make, do, create. Pono means balance, goodness, correctness, perfect order. Ho’oponopono is a method of creating perfect order and balance to heal a situation.”
“A clear intention stated without desperation or need but with a childlike spirit of trust, faith, and fun leads to opportunities nobody could have predicted or orchestrated.”
“In 1976, Morrnah Simeona adapted the traditional Ho’oponopono practice of healing in a group to healing within yourself. Morrna was considered a Kahuna, or keeper of the secrets.”
This book ought to be a movie, a masterpiece of storytelling and a revelation on how the Hawaiian healing system of Ho’oponopono works. Barnet Bain, author, movie producer, director, Milton’s Secret, Story by Eckhart Tolle
