I BEGAN TO SEE THINGS VERY DIFFERENTLY… MY LIFE CHANGED AFTER THAT WEEKEND.
I felt like I had taken a “lifelong bath” – that my energy had been cleansed forever – and that it was my responsibility to keep my energy clean and cleansed. I have my “short form” Ho’oponopono process with me constantly. It has been behind my yearly paper calendar of events since the 80’s. I scan copies of it and put it in my computer, my Ipad, and iPhone. We were taught to leave our Ho’oponopono book open in our cars to teach the “car’s subconscious” to keep itself cleansed – I can’t help thinking that this has worked since I haven’t had a car accident (a very small one) since 1976 – Ho’oponopono!
I have done the Ho’opononopo prayer everywhere in the world that I’ve traveled, except Bali, Indonesia. I started to do it there and a very strong feeling said “no”. I later learned that the “I” had guided me correctly. Bali has its own rituals – its own energy. It’s always good to follow our inner guidance.
The last time I spoke to Morrnah was mid-year 1989. My then business partner, Robert T. Kiyosaki (of Rich Dad/Poor Dad Series) and I had returned to the Big Island of Hawaii to do our Excellerated Business School® for Entrepreneurs to the then Kona Surf Resort (it has now changed hands a couple of times) – a magnificent property next to Keauhou Bay.
I called Morrnah so that she would fly into the Big Island (which we knew she loved) from Oahu, where she was living, and lead the class with the Ho’oponopono prayer. She said, “Honey, I am too tired… I am not as well as I used to be… you do it.”
I was flabbergasted – I was being told by this great Kahuna to lead a public Ho’oponopono process in front of a pretty successful group of entrepreneurs. I felt a little unsure – and felt a tremendous responsibility to lead such a prayer. She reassured me that the entire area: the bay, the resort, the Big Island, had been “programmed” with the prayer and that I had nothing to worry about – that I would do a great job. I felt peaceful and ready… and I did do a good job – how can you not when doing a Ho’oponopono!
From then on, I led Ho’oponopono Prayers in our classes and beyond.
We got very busy – very successful, and I didn’t speak in person with Morrnah again. A few years later I found out that she had passed on February 11, 1992. Though I was saddened that I no longer could pick up the phone and speak to her, or have one of her great treatments, nor learn “at her feet”, I could still feel her presence – as always.
She is will always be a magnificent force in my life. I truly feel that her teachings – Dr. Ihaleakala’s teachings – the prayer has had a tremendous positive impact in my life and business.
Part of the prayer is the “Peace of I”:
Peace be with you, all my Peace.
The Peace that is I, the Peace that is I am,
The Peace for always; now and forever and evermore.
My Peace I give to you, My Peace I leave with you,
Not the world’s Peace, but only my Peace,
The Peace of I.
She taught us that when we get in our car, we get in an airplane, a train or any vehicle, to surround it with 300 million of “Peace of I” – I particularly remember this when I get on airplanes – and I sleep soundly. I know that I am being protected.
I have many “Ho’oponopono” stories to tell – too many for this copy – but rest assured that for the past 36 years, I can honestly say that the Ho’oponopono prayer has been a tremendous guiding (and protecting) force for me.
The word Ho’oponopono is constantly on my lips. I have used it in happy and sad occasions. I know that the alignment of my “inner family” is crucial for my peace of mind, for the mental clarity that I need to run a successful global organization, to attract the wonderful business partners that I now have had for decades, the amazing people that teach at our programs, the participants that attend, the fantastic global network that I have – and the love and connection I have with my beloveds.
My success and prosperity have definitely been propelled by hard work and using the sound business and consciousness principles that we teach… and no question that “the wind beneath my wings” is the Ho’oponopono prayer.
I wish you the same…!
To quote the end of the prayer:
May the I continually bless all involved in the Ho’oponopono process. We are set free and it’s done! We are now in the Divine Creator’s Embrace…
