In this article you will find out why this mantra is so powerful and I will explain in detail what it is, what its benefits are and how to recite it.

What is a mantra

As I explained to you in more detail in the article dedicated to mantras , a mantra is a syllable, a word or a phrase considered sacred that is repeated several times to obtain powerful psychophysical benefits.

When we repeat a mantra, the meaning of the words is not as important as the sound and vibrations it produces and expands in our body.

There are many mantras, some sung, others recited, which you can use for example during your meditation to amplify the beneficial effects of meditation itself.

Ho’Oponopono mantra is exactly one of them.

The origins of Ho’Oponopono mantra

The term Ho’Oponopono comes from far away, more precisely from Hawaii, and literally means “putting things back in their place”.

Legend has it that healing priests practiced the Ho’Oponopono formula to resolve conflicts between members of their tribe. In fact, according to Hawaiian culture, when a person committed an offense against another person, he was shown to have channeled his energy badly.

As a result, the grand council of the tribe was assembled and each of its members, in turn, practiced Ho’Oponopono in front of the offender and the entire community.

In this way, the event was shared by everyone and everyone recognized that they were partly responsible for what happened.

Ho’Oponopono today: the basic concepts

This traditional method of collective purification has evolved over time, becoming today a personal practice.

The term Ho’Oponopono has in fact become synonymous with a real philosophy of life based on forgiveness and acceptance.

Ho’Oponopono is a really powerful concept: it teaches you that everything good or bad that you happen to see, hear or perceive in everyday life depends 100% on you!

Shocking right? Let’s explore this concept in more detail.

Welcoming Ho’Oponopono into your life means accepting that everything that happens around you has been produced by you and your energy. This energy is nothing more than the extension of the energy of the universe, of which we are all a part.

As a result, you are both yourself and the rest of the world, and everything you see is your own creation. From this point of view, Ho’Oponopono is a light to welcome that allows you to eliminate painful memories and negative thoughts.

A great Ho’Oponopono expert, Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len , stated :

“The errors of the world are contained in your soul, as they are contained in mine”.

If you have a present or past problem in life, you must therefore seek its root within yourself and solve it.

As you clear your inner memories, you will also clear out those on the outside. This means that by clearing your mind, you will also help the individual evolution of the people around you.

In fact, according to the Ho’Oponopono we are all one and individual progress corresponds to the progress of all.

How to practice Ho’Oponopono mantra

The practice of the Ho’Oponopono mantra is based on two simple but very powerful concepts: forgiveness and acceptance.

You can start by repeating the mantra on which this meditation is based aloud, whenever you find yourself in an unpleasant situation:

I’m sorry
Forgive me
Thank you
I love you (also works with “I love you”)

The mantra allows you to internalize the concepts of forgiveness, gratitude and acceptance, taking full responsibility for the things that happen around you, generated by you, consciously or unconsciously.

When you repeat it investigate the meaning of these words and really believe them. In fact, you have to really feel sorry (” I’m sorry “) and the desire to be forgiven (” Forgive me “).

Afterward, you need to be grateful for the opportunity behind each problem. Only in this way will you be able to clear your memory and evolve (” Thank you “). Finally, open yourself to the love of the Universe (” I love you “).

It does not matter that you are addressing someone in particular when you recite this mantra: the important thing is to enter with the spirit and the mind into the profound meaning of Ho’Oponopono .
