Let Go of the Past with The Ho’oponopono Mantra

The Ho’oponopono Mantra

I love you.

I am sorry.

Please forgive me.

Thank you.

Ho’oponopono (Ho-Oh Pono-Pono) is an ancient Hawaiian transformational and healing technique of letting go of past issues that are preventing you from living your life to the fullest. Ho’oponopono is a self-help tool that removes toxic, self-limiting beliefs, doubts, and fears from your mind. It does so by replacing those thoughts with feelings of faith, trust, and love.

Ho’oponopono is a mind cleanse. You are cleaning your past, letting go of burdens that are keeping you stuck in the past, and preventing you from living the life you desire.

Ho’oponopono is a gift you give yourself so that you can live your life knowing that the Universe has your back. This happens because you've chosen to let go of everything keeping you from the abundance the in store for you.

Imagine living your life knowing that you can just let go, clean the memories of your past and new negative events as they happen. You get to move forward with the clarity of a clean slate.

Ho'oponopono is about learning to forgive yourself, connect to the Source within you, give gratitude to that Source, and share that love with the world.

Make a path your to future with the clarity that comes from letting go of the past and forgiving yourself.

Ho’oponopono roughly translated – “to make right,” “to correct.” The message of Ho’oponopono is to: Take 100% responsibility for experiences that come into your life.

These experiences can come in the form of an action you have taken. It could be something you did in the past or present or a problem someone shared with you. Sometimes it can be something that you see that evokes a negative emotion in you.

If you experience a negative feeling about anything in your life, take it as an opportunity to practice Ho’oponopono and clean that event from your life by using the simple act of forgiveness and gratitude by repeating the simple Ho’oponopono Mantra.

The Ho’oponopono Mantra

The Ho’oponopono Mantra is used to help you release all negativity. It is a short mantra you repeat anytime, and anywhere to evoke the power of Ho’oponopono.

The Ho’oponopono Mantra

  • I love you.

  • I am sorry.

  • Please forgive me.

  • Thank you.

Here's what the Ho’oponopono Mantra is saying to the Divine as you repeat it: (This is according to the book Zero Limits by Joe Vitale and Dr. Hew Len, Ph.D.)

I Love You: Transmutes your energy from stuck to flowing. It reconnects you to the Divine.

I am Sorry: You acknowledge that something has gotten into your system without your knowledge.

Please Forgive Me: You are asking the Divine to help you forgive yourself.

Thank You: You are expressing gratitude. You are showing your faith that the issue is resolved for the highest good of all concerned.

"Since the Zero State is one of pure love and has zero limits, you are beginning to get to that state by expressing love.

What happens next is up to the Divine. You may be inspired to take action of some sort. Whatever it is, do it. If you aren’t sure about the action to take, use this same healing method on your confusion. When you are clear, you’ll know what to do." - Zero Limits by Joe Vitale and Dr. Hew Len, Ph.D.

My Ho'oponopono Experience

My goal with is to share the knowledge of how this tool has transformed my life. With each passing month, my understanding of Ho'oponopono, and its effects on my life transcends anything I could have imagined when I was first introduced to this self-help tool.

Ho'oponopono started working wonders for me from the moment I started repeating the Ho'oponopono mantra. The best part of Ho'oponopono is that you don't need a full understanding to see the benefits and changes in your life. All I remember is the first day I walked out of my home repeating the mantra was the first time in my life I could see the physical effects of my energy vibration on the world.

I believe that the study of Ho'oponopono is like trying to peel an endless onion with each layer giving you more gems than the last. I ended up creating this post while trying to edit the first Ho'oponopono post I ever wrote. By the time I was done editing the first half, I had decided I had two more articles to add to the first.

I love you, thank you. (A super short version of the ho'oponopono mantra: I love you. Thank you.) I wish you even more fantastic wonders than I experienced when I first discovered Ho'oponopono and each day ever since.
