Ancient Hawaiian Prayer with Morrnah Simeona

The ho'oponopono technique taught by that Morrnah Nalamaku Simeona consists of four simple, yet powerful phrases:

  1. I'm sorry.
  2. Please forgive me.
  3. Thank you.
  4. I love you.

The four ho'oponopono phrases or affirmations are utilized as a means of giving up old, unwanted ways that people think about each other. They can then return the energy existing between them back to ground zero. AT this point it is possible to build a fresh, positive connection between people.

In my overview of Dr Joe Vitale's ho'oponopono course for practitioners, I make it clear that this technique can be used to great effect both on the person performing the mantra and the recipient(s) of the ancient Hawaiian prayer.
