What kind of scenery emerges when you hit a dead end in something? What stories do you hear during such times, and what are they saying to you?

“My parents could only live this way.
No matter how hard I try, I’ll never be able to live like that.
That friend was born under a lucky star, but I’m different.”

We experience various things every day – happy times, sad times, and everything in between. But we may always be carrying stories deep in our hearts. Ho’oponopono helps release the settings we’ve carried since birth, since the beginning of the universe, and restores us to our original settings – zero, the divine gifts bestowed upon us. The first step is to clean the script you are holding.

Waking up the Unihipili from its nightmares is the process of Ho’oponopono.

When you want to turn your life around, it’s essential to be aware of what’s happening right in front of you.

Let me share a story.

There was a volleyball match for my daughter, but I couldn’t attend due to work. Instead, my ex-husband, her father, went in my place. He kept me updated via text messages during the match, describing how my daughter’s team was losing badly. I felt something was wrong – not the fact they were losing, but that there was something off about the way they were losing. As I began cleaning, I realized the need to clean with the relationship between my ex-husband and me, not just the situation of him being there and me being at the office.

I decided to focus solely on cleaning. I cleaned all my feelings towards my ex-husband, all the events leading up to our divorce that I wanted to forget. Anger rose during the process. Why did I have to clean when it was my bad husband who should be doing it?

However, after a while, I received another text from my ex-husband. It read, “Our daughter’s team won!” What I realized then was not that my cleaning helped my daughter win, but that this match, experienced from my location, was a chance for me to clean with myself.

Although the outcome was happy, that situation gave me an opportunity to clean the unnecessary things within me. Therefore, whatever is happening right now, whether it’s joyful or not, is an opportunity given to me to re-experience the light that I’ve become blind to.

The goal of Ho’oponopono is to act on inspiration.

But this doesn’t mean sitting silently on a big rock, just watching the world and everything that happens in it. It’s about living inspiration through oneself, via cleaning. If it’s hard to feel or see this inspiration, the quickest way is to free the memories of what’s appearing right now through Ho’oponopono.

The ‘class’ makes this possible through practice.

Peace begins with me.
