Healing Others

1 Comment

Heal ourself, heal others.

Hawaiian kahunas believe we are interconnected at the level of soul or energy. Scientists refer to a similar concept they call string theory. Assuming interconnection is a fact, changing our self automatically causes change in everyone we know. So when you let negative feelings go you are improving your connection to the other person or people. This change within will also be reflected in how you react to that person. They will see this change, hopefully sooner than later, and may change their reaction to you. This could become a reconciliation.

Hawaiian kahunas also believe our minds, bodies and emotions are interconnected and that healing should focus on all three areas. If you wish to pray for someone to heal them mentally, emotionally and physically, you must follow a formula with the greatest potential for success. The steps are:

  1. Get permission from the person you wish to heal.
  2. Perform a Ho’oponopono for yourself, insuring nothing negative stands in your way.
  3. Form an intention to completely heal yourself and the other person at the same time. The healing will be for all physical, emotional and mental aspects.
  4. Pray to God, and spirits (angels, saints, healing spirits, etc.) to assist with the healing. All healing will be done according to God’s will. We will not focus on specific results. God knows what caused the illness, what needs to be healed, and when it needs to be healed. Our motto is “God’s will be done.”
  5. Breathe in slowly thinking ‘Aloha’ (Love), bringing God’s healing energy into your body. Breathe out slowly thinking ‘Mahalo’ (Thank You). As you do this the energy will flow into you and the person you are healing, even if they are remotely located. Do this breathing exercise eight times.
  6. Thank God and all healing spirits for their help.
  7. Let go and let God. Release your wishes and thoughts about healing so your request flows unencumbered to God. Let God take charge. The Hawaiian kahunas say, “Amama Ua Noa”, which means “our prayers have flown to God.”
  8. For healing which requires more time, I recommend healing every other day.

Sometimes you will see quick healing results. Or it may take time. In some cases God may not want healing to take place. I recommend using Aloha and Mahalo because this healing method has been used by Hawaiian kahunas for hundreds, perhaps thousands, of years. Words have power.

Amama Ua Noa




Hawaiians have a method they use to eliminate bad feelings among people, especially friends and family. They call it Ho’oponopono. Translated it means ‘to make right and correct.’ This method consists of four statements which can be used to release bad feelings about any problem. I’m sorry. Please forgive me. I love you. Thank you.

At first glance you might shy away from this approach because your feelings are so negative. But these statements are said to yourself, not to the other person. Here’s how negative feelings are approached. When you think of a negative situation or person, who feels the negativity? You do. So this is the place to begin the healing process, right inside yourself.

Try this. Think of a mildly negative person or situation. Pay attention to your feelings. These feelings cause you stress, which in turn may cause physical, mental or emotional problems over time. You don’t want to do this to yourself. How do you stop it?

First, say to yourself, “I’m sorry.” Your intention here is to say you are sorry to yourself for carrying these negative feelings with you and repeating them every time you think about the situation or person associated with it.

Next, ask yourself for forgiveness for nurturing this negativity. Say, “Please forgive me.” This acknowledges you meant no harm to yourself. You just got into a bad habit.

Recognizing your own thoughts caused you to feel bad, think or say this line to yourself, “I love you.” Really mean it. Say it with the same fervor you feel when you say it to your significant other.

The last line is simply, “Thank you.” It is important for you to associate an action with this phrase. Picture your subconscious removing the negative thoughts and feelings and erasing them. In the future, you will remember that an event or person caused you negative feelings, you just won’t replay them. “Thank you” is saying thanks to your inner self for removing the problem.

I have used this myself many times, for situations and for people. Every time I do it I feel better immediately. When I recall the issue or person later I find that the negativity is gone. While the memory may exist, it won’t be an emotional issue any more. Try this yourself and let me know how it goes.

Great for healing ourselves. How do we heal others? See tomorrow’s blog.

What do we believe as Americans?


I’ve had many thoughts about the Presidential Election but I didn’t want to repeat what others were saying. However I am concerned about the level of dissatisfaction among citizens and the general sense of fear and worry being expressed. What should we do? How should we act?

I sought solace in my Hawaiian Mana cards. I asked, “With the unexpected changes in politics we seem to have more worry and fear in our lives. How should all citizens behave?”

The spread I used was the Kukui spread, a one card draw. Of course I always check the card on the bottom of the deck for additional illumination.

After randomly moving all cards around the top of my kitchen table, stacking them together, cutting and riffling them three times, dividing the deck into four piles and then reassembling it in reverse order, I then turned over the top card for my answer.

The draw card was number 44, Ano-Ano which is about Intention. Ano-Ano is one of only five cards in the deck of 44 that can have two meanings. In this case the calabash pictured on the card was pointed up and has the following meaning:

  • “The seeds you plant in your thoughts, words or actions determine what you harvest. Therefore it is important to be in touch with the intentions that underlie those thoughts, words or actions.
  • Focus on your thoughts. Visualize your desired outcome.

Good advice. So I turned the deck over. The bottom card was number 19 ‘Ole which means Stories. It advises:

  • “What stories are we telling ourselves? Revising them can change your past, present and future.”

This is great advice and demonstrates one of the reasons I return to these cards time and again. I get so caught up in life that I lose impartiality. The Mana cards give me the uncluttered and unbiased answer I need. So let’s go back to the first question in this blog.

What do we believe as Americans?

Our nation’s history is full of conflict, some physical, some political. How did we survive? We survived because our elected officials always found ways to work together, find acceptable compromises, and come up with acceptable solutions. The solutions don’t make everyone 100% happy, but they keep us together as a nation because they create solutions that we believe are fair for the vast majority of American citizens.

THIS IS OUR STORY. It is a true story because it is based on fact, the fact that we are still called the United States. So when someone asks you what will happen just tell them our politicians will find solutions, because that is their job, and we will continue to be called the United States of America.

Please share this with your friends as well as with those who voted for a different party.
