Even if we learn Ho’oponopono, we cannot comprehend with our minds how we are imprisoned by our memories. Therefore, every time I attend a class, I distance myself from intellectual understanding and, by practicing Ho’oponopono, I connect with Unihipili and experience the wonderful connection with the divine.

We, burdened with memories in our subconscious, live as if in a place littered with unwanted trash. Unknowingly accumulating rubbish we never wanted, we desperately seek solutions and try to find the root of the problems. We’ve become so accustomed to this that we forget we can throw the garbage away.

The first step to solving a problem is to remember that memories, the clutter, can be let go of. By starting to clean, we finally begin to appropriately focus on our current place and situation, regaining our natural balance. This reflects not only on ourselves but also on our environment and the society we observe.

In class, we learn to free ourselves from the intelligence that confines us, reconnect with Unihipili, and entrust the resolution of our problems to the divine presence. Consider how much suffering, difficulty, conflict, anger, and disagreement you’ve encountered in life. How have you dealt with these? Enduring them passively or blaming others is essentially the same; the trash remains in front of you.

Ho’oponopono brings real change. It’s a practical way to love your life and maintain peace in your personal nest.

Do you choose to punish and judge those you believe are the cause of the problem, or do you first experience peace and follow the path presented by the divinity?
