Oponopono – The Forgiving Law
Last time, when I was a kid, I was talking to another parent and I was talking about life and asked me what I was doing for life. I mentioned that besides the local dormitory I was the author of the Ekahi Method book and seminars. After explaining Ekahi's report, Sandy asked if I ever heard of oponopono. I've never heard of this beautiful Polynesian word, I was excited to have done some research when I got home.
Oponopono is an ancient Hawaiian sins. Traditionally he practiced healing practice for someone sick. Practice is very similar to other forms of healing of other Polynesian islands. It was believed that the source of a patient's illness was related to the error or the guilt of the errors associated with the mistake. Ponopono literally means "doing things right" or "putting things right". Shortly after the Europeans left the ancient Polynesian practices of the Hawaiians, many continued their family gatherings and prayers through their own forms in the 1930s. The Hawaiians thought the disease was the result of a person who overthrew the spiritual laws (gate) .
This exercise of forgiveness to help heal a person was usually the leader of the family. He begins to pray and openly discuss the guilt of the family member. All members of the family had a chance to listen. Finally, the person who committed the plot was given the opportunity to admit, repent and apologize. The family would then release all of its negative feelings and interrupt the relationship with the past. hoopdoopono would have a fever that included seaweed consumption. At the end of the twentieth century, the Hawaiian courts attempted to resolve certain doubts using the hooponopono . The ceremony will be conducted by a trained person appointed by a court. The idea that the crime is punished most closely with family and victim involvement is increasingly popular on the ground, as demonstrated by programs such as restorative justice. Many Indigenous Cultures have oponopono or restorative justice. The Canadian Mohawk First Nation practices a form of restorative justice when members of a member are found guilty. Mohawk found the Canadian legal system to be too contradictory and not the best in the service of the Mohawk people.
Dr. Joe Vitale, who was featured in the movie The Secret of the highly popular film, wrote a book about 19459002 oponopono for the success of life. Dr. Vitale approaches using oponopono essentially instructs people to leave the past for a person to devote more energy to the image and creation. With the cleansing of our mind and our forgiveness of past mistakes, we release ourselves from the anchors that pulled us. I strongly believe Dr. Vitale's idea that not only should we forgive others who have ruined us (as in the Lord's prayer), but we must also forgive ourselves. In fact, we can say that the person who requires the greatest forgiveness ourselves.
There is no doubt that guilt and negative conscience, which predominates over ignorance of consciousness, is to steal valuable energy from creatures and to actually contribute to the disease. Imagine for a moment what it would feel like to release all the energy of the past (fish) How much more will you free. It may be a good day today to forgive and try to act to act by the act of oponopono by the past in the present.
