The Ho'oponopono Prayer

©Louise Dollin - All rights reserved

How could anyone heal or help anyone else by healing or helping herself or himself without intervening in the external situation? How could anyone improve an outer circumstance by improving and regulating her or his internal dilemmas and conflicts? How could a perfect stranger be the reflection of an inner part of the observer?

Once, Dr. Hew Len, the contemporary father of the Ho'oponopono Prayer as practiced today in the Western world, was asked: "What did you do to make a difference in your patients' lives and improve their mental condition, without seeing them but just their medical files and records?" Dr. Len answered: "I was simply healing the parts of me that were creating their suffering and pain." 

Everything that touches you talks about you and you ultimately have the responsibility to respond to and address what is reacting in you. If it is sensitive it's because a part of you, known or unknown, has entered in resonance with that external situation. The desire to only fix what you see in that reflection, it's like combing your hair in the mirror. Nothing happens, nothing changes.

The Ho'oponopono is a wondrous way of cleaning and deactivating memories deeply lodged within the subconscious mind.

Clearing requires only one thing: LOVE. It's because of love that old patterns of suffering can shift and transmute into infinite possibilities, into inspiration, into what Dr. Len call the "Zero state", the "Zero limits" a pure state of inspiration. From that state, nothing has been written yet, nothing has been thought yet. As you empty the reservoir of conditioning and old programing, a state of being surfaces from which you can turn the page of your current chapter or scenario and land on a fresh, beautiful and immaculate blank page filled with possibilities beyond imagination.

A trauma is always created in the absence of love. To pour love upon your most delicate wounds will help you to let go of the structures that you've built to protect yourself from feeling those wounds. Everyone knows as far as the physical body is concerned that it's always worst to hurt yourself again on the site of an old injury. This is true for subtler wounds such as abandonment, injustice...


"The unconscious is empervious to verbal logic and is wary of possible leaks and consequences in reality."

Anne Ancelin SchĂŒtzenberger

Your inner child and the memories he or she carries.

A book to read:

Zero limits by Dr. Joe Vitale with a great Appendix by Dr. Len

"If we can accept that we are the sum total of all past thoughts, emotions, words, deeds and actions and that our present lives and choices are colored or shaded by this memory bank of the past, then we begin to see how a process of correcting or setting aright can change our lives, our families and our society."
