A story about Hawaiian Healing

Hooponopono became known to the wider public through a blog post written by Dr. Joe Vitale. It said how Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len healed psychiatric patients with this powerful Hawaiian Healing Method, using four simple phrases.

People read this story full of wonders, posted and then reposted the blog on the web.

Slowly it spread all over the globe and became a topic many people were intrigued by and wanted to know more about.  

A few years later Joe Vitale wrote a book together with Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len which was published in 2008 under the title Zero Limits.

Since then the seminars held by Dr Ihaleakala attract thousands of people all over the world. 

I went to Dr Hew Len’s 2-day seminar called Self I-Dentity through Ho’oponopono, short SITH, in Prague in 2011. I imagined there to be around 40 participants - we ended up being about 350! 

On the photo he is demonstrating how light shines through a transparent sheet of plastic. Before that he shows how light cannot pass through a black sheet of plastic. 

When you have NOTHING obstructing your consciousness love can easily resurface. The four phrases of Hooponopono are the effective cleaning method to arrive at that state of NOTHING, where it is possible to feel the essence of true love, the essence that we are in truth.   

At the seminar Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len told us his story about the psychiatric hospital:

He would look at a patient file and say with all his sincerity the four phrases: I love you, I am sorry, please forgive me and thank you. Learn the simple method here.

Then he would look at the next patient’s file and do the same. He would repeat this procedure for every single patient in his care. Then he would do this for every member of staff and every room in that hospital even on the building itself.

After a while, things began to change in that hospital: Violent patients became less violent, uncooperative patients would become more cooperative and staff would be less absent due to illness.

After eight years of Dr. Hew Len’s practice some of the most violent patients had been cured and allowed to return back home. In fact most of the patients could leave. You can read the exact details of the story in the book Zero Limits which has been written by Joe Vitale.

Dr. Ihaleakala was a student of Morrnah Simeona, who founded Self I-Dentity through Ho’oponopono. At the seminar we learned the different prayers and philosophies developed by Morrnah Simeona.

She had modernized the ancient Hawaiian ritual of Ho’oponopono and had held Pacifica seminars in the US and many other countries in the world. She even was declared a living treasure of the state of Hawaii

Watch these 9-part interview series with Dr. Ihalekala Hew Len:

Dr. Ihaleakala extended Simeona's teachings by introducing the famous mantra containing the four phrases which became a powerful healing method: I love you, thank you, please forgive me, I am sorry.

Hooponopono seminar

The photo shows a typical scene on a seminar:

Dr. Hew Len walks through the audience as he talks.  Trying to make us understand that the key to our happiness lays in cleaning our thoughts to arrive at a level where there are no obstacles and no limits: ZERO LIMITS.

My personal impression of the method and how Hooponopono Mantra works for me you can read here.

The four phrases were the main message of the seminar I went to. At the end of the seminar he gave us the one most important message in his personal opinion: 

The two phrases I love you and thank you, said about every person and issue that crosses our mind or we meet on our path, will alone begin the changes in our lives.
