How To Use The Ho’oponopono Meditation: For Forgiveness And Cord Cutting
The Purpose of This Meditation
Essentially, the ho‘oponopono meditation is used to help us cut cords with the past, and transform and improve our current and future relationships.
The Hawaiian word ho‘oponopono derives from ho‘o (“to make”) and pono (“right”). The ancient practice includes the repetition of four sentences: I love you! I am sorry! Please Forgive Me! Thank You! The word “pono” gets repeated twice: to accentuate the dual action and effect of finding true closure: with oneself and the word.
Hurt people HURT people. Healed people heal those who have been hurt.Tweet
It is impossible to break free from the past if we don’t first heal from it.
Unless we do, we will keep attracting the same situations or people who would trigger similar (or even identical) old fears, insecurities or emotional responses.
In order to cut cords (energetically) with people who have hurt us (including ourselves) we need to be in an active state of forgiveness and love.
Saying “I am sorry“ to yourself (or the person who wronged you) energetically shifts you from a place of vengeance or regret to a place of inner peace and emotional strength.
You have to develop an energy shield of emotional neutrality in order to cut the cords with the person/or situation that is holding you back.
What has happened already IS and, as such, is already imprinted in our memory.
You can`t change it. But you can alternate your reaction to it and get your power back.
Place your hand on your heart center and breathe into it…know that you can always detach yourself from toxic energies.

Forgiving ourselves is not less difficult than forgiving someone else. It may even be harder… Often, we are our worst critics.
Saying that we forgive ourselves (and everybody who has hurt us) is the enlightened path that exits the vicious spiral of vengeance, victimization and on-going accusations. Forgive and forget.
Allow your body to address its pains; listen attentively…and then let it go.
Whoever mistreated you (whether it was You, your parents, your spouse, co-worker, boss, or a complete stranger)…it is now a fragment of your memory lane.
By detaching yourself from this person, you release the power they have on your mood and energy.
From a law of attraction point of you, we are all energy.
And in order to change our reality and to attract the kind of relationships/or circumstances we want, and improve the overall quality of our lives, we need to already be in a state of appreciation for having it.
If your body, heart and and mind still hold on past judgment and self-image that is negative, you can`t possibly move forward, without still carrying the same habitual patterns and emotional baggage.
You will be doomed to repeat the same life events all over again.
You can change that!
Saying “Thank You” to the person who caused you pain tells the Universe that you`ve learned your karmic lesson and are ready to move on. Every person we meet is an assignment. We have to understand the lesson first in order to forgive, let go, and move on.
The most blissful sentence is to say “I love you!“
Nobody can love us, if we don`t already love ourselves: just the way that we are, with all our imperfections and areas for improvement.
Saying that you love, love, love yourself is the foundation of releasing all old limitations and blockages that hold you back giving and receiving love from others.
The same applies to the people who get on your nerves.
The more you mirror their negative energy, the more it gets mirrored back to you. When you say you love them, this doesn`t mean you condone them!
It means you`re choosing to send love to this part of themselves that is hurt.
Only hurt people hurt people. Be the healing energy.

Now take a moment to close your eyes, tune in and repeat those sentences with focus, intention and unconditional acceptance, forgiveness, love, and gratitude.
