Maka’ala Yates on Ho’oponopono

Originally posted on Indigenous Medicine:
Ho’oponopono is the answer to bringing peace, harmony, wisdom and love into ones life and ultimately the community, society, the world, and the universe.  Meditation is an important element for ho’oponopono because it can increase and refine the receptivity of the Divine consciousness (Kumukahi) within all things.  Meditation is the indigenous Hawaiian way of reuniting the soul with our higher consciousness and with Kumukahi (the One Original Source).  The soul manifests its consciousness and mana (life-force) through the ‘piko’ (chakra) or centers of light or energy centers within the human cerebrospinal axis.  It is within this bodily prism that the soul consciousness and mana become identified with physical limitations. Our body is programmable by language, tones, words or thoughts, all of which carry a frequency.  The kind of frequency created determines the desired outcome of the producer.  Each individual must work on the inner process and development in order to establish a conscious communication with the DNA, which is our super—conductor that can store light, therefore, information. When a large number of people collectively come together with higher intentions such as meditating on peace – violent potentials will dissolve.  It is through meditation that all questions, all troubles, and all difficulties can be resolved or answered. The following is a sample of a simple Hawaiian meditation technique called “Alo Ha.”  If you would like to learn more go to http://www.manalomi.com and see about one of…

Tragedy in Afghanistan: Can You Walk In Another Soul’s Boots?

I believe veterans are some of our most educated and experienced global citizens, and they have the capacity to be society’s greatest teachers when given substantial support in regards to transforming and integrating their combat experiences.  In general, we as a nation and a military community are falling short in offering support of this kind.  We are only beginning to […]

What is ho’opono or ho’oponopono?

To begin to answer this question one can simply dive into the beautiful language of Hawai’i.  Ho’o is a causative word, giving action to whatever word follows it.  According to the Hawaiian dictionary, pono means in perfect order, uprightness, well being, etc.  The repetition of the word pono is sometimes repeated for greater emphasis.  So ho’opono or ho’oponopono can mean […]

Listening to the Voice of Nature

Inspiration for this post came when a rather large blue heron flew by my window and landed on my neighbor’s roof as I was eating breakfast yesterday (about 30 feet away). Heron had made an appearance at our lake everyday while we were hosting our good friends from Hawai’i the week prior. Because of his frequent visits during their stay, […]
