A Note From Kira Goldy – Psychic Medium and Shamanic Healer
My family background is half from the tribe of Jews. The Jewish New Year Rosh Hashanah is on September, and October 31st it is Hallowe’en or Samhain, which is the New Year for pagans – those who recognise the Divine in All…so its not too surprising that I am feeling endings and beginnings most strongly in the Autumn.
I have been talking about Ho’oponopono today to a few people who needed to hear about it. And it feels so relevant to the changing of the seasons to the endings and beginnings that I feel so strongly right now. To really make the most of a new beginning you have to clear the decks first. Ho’oponopono is the thing to use for all your loose ends, the stuff that is lingering on and preventing you from truly moving forwards. But its good for so much more than that too
…once I started saying it as I ran to my car when a traffic warden was putting a ticket on it. He said “Never mind” and tore it up.
I had a friend who was in big trouble for doing something harmless and victimless, but illegal. I sat with his photo and said the Ho’oponopono to his photo for half an hour a day for three months. I also did a big spell with him too, and against the odds he didn’t get sent to prison when it really looked like he was going to be. Not only did he get let off lightly, but as a person he is completely transformed and would never go back to his old ways because real and total transformation has happened.
I have used it to deal with heart breaks, to clear spaces, to just do something in situations where I was not able to actually act. It always works. Prayer always works.
As always there are some situations which will seemingly stay as they are no matter what you do, or want; but prayer and this specific technique can transform everything about the way the situation feels to those in it, even if it doesn’t actually change on the outside.
I wrote about it in one of the first Love Letters. I got this story from an excerpt from a book by Joe Vitalis.
Here is what I wrote.
Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len in Hawaii cured a complete ward of criminally insane patients-without ever seeing any of them. He used a Hawaiian healing process called ho’oponopono.
He worked at Hawaii State Hospital for four years. The ward he was assigned to was where they kept the criminally insane, and it was a dangerous place to work. Psychologists quit on a monthly basis. The staff called in sick a lot or simply quit. People would walk through that ward with their backs against the wall, afraid of being attacked by patients. It was not at all a pleasant place to live, work, or visit.
Dr. Len says that he never saw his patients. He agreed to have an office, and to review their files. While he looked at their files, he would work on himself. As he worked on himself, the hospital’s patients began to heal.
He said, “After a few months, patients that had to be shackled were being allowed to walk freely. Others who had to be heavily medicated were getting off their medications. And those who had no chance of ever being released were being freed.”
Not only that, but the staff began to enjoy coming to work. Absenteeism and turnover disappeared.
Dr Len revealed, “We ended up with more staff than we needed because patients were being released, and all the staff was showing up to work. Today, that ward is closed.”
Dr Len was asked. What was he doing, exactly, when he looked at those patients’ files? He responded: “I just kept saying, ‘I’m sorry’ and ‘I love you’ over and over again.” That’s it? “That’s it”.
He explains, “Ho’oponopono is really very simple. For the ancient Hawaiians, all problems begin as thought. But having a thought is not the problem. So what’s the problem? The problem is that all our thoughts are imbued with painful memories, memories of persons, places, or things. The intellect working alone can’t solve these problems, because the intellect only manages.”
“Managing things is no way to solve problems. You want to let them go! When you do Ho’oponopono, what happens is that the Divinity takes the painful thought and neutralises or purifies it. You neutralise the energy you associate with that person, place, or thing.” “So the first stage of Ho’oponopono is the purification of that energy. Not only does that energy get neutralised; it also gets released, so there’s a brand new slate Buddhists call it the Void. The final step is that you allow the Divinity to come in and fill the void with light.”
“To do Ho’oponopono, you don’t have to know what the problem or error is. All you have to do is notice any problem you are experiencing physically, mentally, emotionally, whatever. Once you notice, your responsibility is to immediately begin to clean, to say, ‘I’m sorry. Please forgive me.’ “
