What is Ho’oponopono?

Ho’oponopono is about energy, meditation, responsibility, letting go, love, and gratitude. 


How Do You Say It?

For ho’o, say a short huh, followed by oh.

Say huh oh
      Say     pono
         Say      huh oh pono
            Say       ponopono  

                Say       ho’oponopono

The above is not an official guide.  You will learn the pronunciation best by listening to the teachers of ho’oponopono on the Internet.

Ho’o is the Hawaiian word for make, cause or bring about: It is like the word “to” in front of a verb.

There is no word in English that defines pono exactly and it can have many meanings. Being pono in all your relationships means to be sincere… responsible… correct… excellent… fair… caring… loving… peaceful… honest… just… moral… necessary… prosperous… successful…
truthful… right… upright… without negative energy… helpful… good.

Ponopono means perfection, being right in all relations, making right even more right.

Ho’oponopono is an ancient Hawaiian healing and forgiveness practice that we can learn to make things right by taking full responsibility to correct our errors. We are able to do this by letting go of what isn’t truly who we are, the thoughts and feelings we have held on to, whether we are aware of them or not. When we let go, we can return to the perfection and clarity we knew when we were born. The perfection, which is our true self, reminds us that we are connected to and one with everything.
