Born with a disability, my childhood and teenage years were shadowed by bullying and a heightened self-consciousness. These experiences left me grappling with inner turmoil and pain.

It was during my university years, amidst a period of existential unease, that I stumbled upon Ho’oponopono in a local library. Learning about Unihipili – a kinder, inner aspect of myself – was a revelation that filled me with joy. I devoted myself to daily ‘cleaning’ practices, a journey that brought me profound happiness.

In the autumn of my first year at university, I experienced a pivotal moment: I heard Unihipili’s voice for the first time, marking the beginning of a true dialogue with my authentic self.

Our daily interactions led to a solemn promise: never to hurt Unihipili and to never forget that my current self exists because of her presence. Before meeting Unihipili, I was lost, unsure of how to live my life. Meeting her marked a significant turning point, guiding me towards a path of self-acceptance and growth.

I am eternally grateful to Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len and KR for introducing me to this transformative practice. I apologize for any harm I’ve caused, I ask for forgiveness, and I express my love and gratitude. As I continue on this journey, I remain committed to upholding my promise to Unihipili, strengthening our bond every day.
