History of Ho’oponopono
Ho’oponopono ia a very powerful, life-transforming meditation that originated in Hawaii and has a long history of healing the individual and reuniting families. Over the years the traditional form has gradually faded and only a few kapuna lapa’au continue to practice, however in 1976 Morrnah Nalamaku Simeona began the transformation of Ho’oponopono into what it is today. The original form of Ho’oponopono required a mediator, usually a qualified practitioner or Kahuna Lapa’au , to be present to guide the healing process which was most often a family or group of people interacting with one another under the guidance of the mediator to facilitate the healing process. Morrnah is responsible for updating Ho’oponopono so that it no longer requires the presence of a Kahuna, thereby allowing an individual to perform their own healing.
Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len, who cured every patient in the criminally insane ward of a Hawaiian State Hospital — without ever seeing a single patient. Now this may seem a little “insane,” but upon having a closer look, the story speaks for itself.
Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len set up an office within the hospital to review his patients files. While he looked at these files, he would work on himself, and over four years, the patients all healed. He used the legendary Hawaiian healing and cleansing method Ho’oponopono to accomplish all of this. It is based on healing through loving oneself. Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len repeated the words “I’m sorry” and “I love you” over and over again while reviewing each file individually. After a few months, the patients who were shackled were allowed to walk freely, patients were taken off medications, and even the hopeless cases were eventually released back into society.
The word spread and many were curious about this fantastic story, but there was very little information available about it. Then a man named Dr. Joe Vitale, best-selling author and personal development guru, caught wind of Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len story and decided he had to learn from him first hand. Soon Ho’oponopono blue bottle love blue solar water became aware that Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len is a master teacher of this ancient Hawaiian practice of Ho`oponopono. He learned that by using this potent forgiveness and releasing process, one is able to “clear your mind of subconscious blocks so that destiny and desire can take over and help you get what you truly want from life. It clears out unconsciously accepted beliefs, thoughts, and memories that you don’t even know are holding you back.” Their collaboration eventually led to the co-authored book Zero Limits, which chronicles this journey, and is offered in our online store under Water Wisdom.
One very valuable cleansing tool Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Lena suggests is Blue Solar Water. He suggests to fill a blue glass bottle with the tap water. You can choose to use tap water or else fill the bottle with the purest water you have access to, and set in outdoor sunlight for 10 minutes to an hour, and up to 12 hours for a more potent effect, to charge the water with the healing blue light. If it is NOT sunny for a long period of time where you are, then you can use incandescent light, but not LED or fluorescent light. He says that it will remove recurring “memories” or programs that run in your subconscious, freeing you from their effects. In other words, it will allow you to “let go and let God.”
Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len has retired now. He has a very important message for us all to hear and heed:
“The only purpose in your life and mine is the restoration of our Identity—
our Mind—back to its original state of void or zero (Buddha),
of purity of heart (Jesus)
and of blank (Shakespeare) through nonstop cleaning.”
