Haipule: The Art of Manifestation

I have taught this techniques and used this with success for many yrs, may you manifest that which your heart desires.
To help you manifest and for this to be effective you need 3 things …….. Motivation, Concentration and Confidence.

You need to: build your inner energy, know what you want, and concentrate using words, images and action then you need to let your wish or desire go, sending it out into the universe.

Focus on the benefits,  how you will feel when you have …. how your life will be like when you get what you want. Really concentrate on this—— with confidence and without doubt.

NO fears. uncertainty or doubt allowed.

This derails haipule.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So here we go  Speak this blessing  to open the prayer.

Aumakua, Aloha and Mahalo

Here are the steps:

Begin by building your energy.  This is HA.
You can do this with your breath. Imagine energy streaming into your lower abdomen and into your heart. Just feel  light or energy streaming into your body each time you inhale. You can augment this by holding a clear crystal if  you like.

Second use words to affirm and give direction. This is I .
Define what you want, say it out loud, write it out. make it true for your entire being. Really allow your body-mind to get a hold of this.  Make a decision…. that this is what I want to achieve. Send out a blessing or affirmation to the universe.

Third imagine , visualize and see what you want.  This is PU.
Here is where it gets fun, imagine yourself with that which you desire, really experience the joy you will feel and hold that energy within your heart. Use images to affirm your words to give power and weight to the words  that you used in step 2.  Imagine the end result as fully as you can.

Make a gesture or action This is LE. It can be a movement or gesture that release your wish and symbolizes success. Raise your hands to your mouth and imagine you are holding this wish in your open hands and blow gently over your hands sending your wish into the world for your High  Self ( aumakua ) to manifest.

When I learned this technique  we put one arm out in front of us with our hand in a fist then  we brought the other arm over our head from behind and placed our open hand over the fist saying  Amama…So be it as the palm of our hand covered our fist. This is a powerful gesture of success and I personally use both actions. One as an offering and a release of my will, as I hand it over to aumakua. and the second as a gesture of success.

And Lastly  you end by saying: So be it. Amama. or Amama ua noa lele walea kua la

A blessing chant you can also use is:  Aumakua, mai ka po wai ole ho’ikea mai I ke ola. High Self bring forth the water of life and manifest these blessings.   From Serge Kahili King

Powerful mind-body motivators

Aloha

I wanted to share with you today  something really cool. Your body and subconscious mind is motivated away from pain and towards pleasure.  Using this basic principle you can change your symptoms and habits very easily. How? You might be asking , well it’s pretty simple but powerful. I have found that the simpler things are the more powerful they actually are.The easiest way to illustrate this is to tell you a story.

Years ago when I was studying in Hawai’i I learned about how to motivate my body-mind to change pretty much anything in my life.  A bunch of us went out to lunch and at the end of the buffet there was a huge bowl of chocolate mousse on the buffet. Well, I love chocolate,  but ever since I kissed the wrong boy 7 years before, I  started to get fever blisters, so  I had not let chocolate pass across my lips in a long time. Now, all woman know chocolate is a must in one’s life, right, so I thought what the hell, I’m going to put what I learned that morning to a test.

My friend sitting next to me has a big dollup of mousse on her plate and I asked her if I could have a taste. She said sure, so I dipped my spoon right in and took a bite. My husband looked on horrified since he lived thru a few fever blisters with me before I figured out that chocolate was a problem but I that didn’t stop me. I was committed. I start talking to my body, telling it that chocolate was the food of the gods, that it was the perfect food and I flooded my brain with memories of my mom’s very wonderful chocolate mousse that she made at holidays.

I remembered and experienced for the first time in years all the pleasure and smoothness of chocolate mousse! I really let my body and mind get this new message. I told my body consciousness that this was indeed an orgasmic food of the gods  and the best food in the universe and  I left my body feel, and I told my self that it had no calories and that there was no problem with eating chocolate anymore.

Guess what happened? Nothing…. no fever blisters ever again!  I eat chocolate whenever I like and I have never had a fever blister from chocolate again. It’s been nearly 21 years. I really feel that the chemistry in my body and brain changed that day! And since then  it has been wonderful to eat my mom’s mousse again.

When I share this story with people they just love it . Here’s what you need to know.

First think of a habit or symptom you want to change. Then use your imagination to share with your body and subconscious how wonderful and pleasurable this change will be to your body and life!  How the pain will be gone and over with.  Show your body consciousness and  subconscious mind with images and words how pleasure will flood into your life and body when you release this habit or symptom.

Amp this up,  be like a cheerleader and DO NOT doubt the truth of what you are saying.  Commit to it  with all your heart. This is the new belief and experience you are creating. Let your body consciousness really feel how good it will be to make this change.  Use positive words and  breath!  If doubt arises repeat the process.

This really does work I have used it again and again as have my clients and it works for them too. Have fun and remember your body and subconscious mind will change if you show it that you are moving from a painful situation to one that will be full of pleasure and fun!

Energy, Accidents and Attraction

I saw something the other night on the deaths in Sedona and it prompted this post.

7 principles in Huna I would like to share…..

  1. The world is what you think it is—– Your mind is key, your thoughts are what shape your world.
  2. There are no limits—- Energy is unlimited, you are unlimited, the world is unlimited.
  3. Energy flows where attention goes—- Your attention will guide your energy, there is no need to manipulate it.
  4. Now is the moment of power—- This moment  is the most powerful, your present is related to your past & future.
  5. To love is to be happy with—Love and happiness are intertwined, when you find one the other will follow.
  6. All power comes from within—- Power is within you, not outside of you.
  7. There is always another way to do everything.—Be flexible, if something doesn’t work try something else.

Simple down to earth principles I learned from Serge King decades ago and they still apply.

I also want to share an observation that will seem paradoxical ….. cause and effect exist,  and accidents do happen.

I remember listening to Stephen and Ondrea Levine speak in Santa Fe many years ago. Many new age people were there and one person asked Stephen about cancer and the concept that we create our own reality and so we are creating our disease.  I was delighted to hear their answer. It resonated with me and was akin to what the channel had said about this issue. You are not to blame for your illness, you did not create it.  He said how un-compassionate this idea was.

Can you imagine sitting with a loved one, dying before your eyes and saying you did this, your thoughts did this. What a sad misconception. Forces of environment, genetics and karma are at play and your thoughts may be apart of this but there are larger forces at work than you may be aware of or even able to imagine.

This holds true for the idea of there are no accidents too. I remember reading a woman whose cat had jumped into a neighbors car, been driven across town and jumped out when the neighbor stopped the car.  This woman was devastated because so many well meaning friends consoled her with ” well everything happens for a reason” and ” there are no accidents.”  Sometimes accidents do happen. They are random and unexpected and yes there may be a lesson in it but it is still an accident. This cat never wanted to be separated from its home and family , he was just curious and wanted a warm stop to sleep.

So please be gentle with yourselves and each other. People often was to simplify that which is complex and to to make complex that which is simple.

My Prayers for the Gulf

I pray that the oil spill will stop, that the winds and sea remain calm, that spirit and intellect guide the hands of men as they make the repairs swiftly and effectively.  I pray for all the animals of sea, air and land that call the Gulf home. I pray that the men and woman who depend on the Gulf find hope and work.

I send love and healing and gratitude to the water and to all the living creatures of the Gulf, the whales, dolphins, sharks,  fish, shellfish, pelicans, birds, the plankton, algae, coral and sand and finally to the oil I send you love as well. I am sorry, please forgive me for whatever is in me that has created this situation I send you all my love.

I visualize the powers that be working together effectively to end this disaster. I see harmony in the hearts of men as they work together.  I see obstacles dissolve. I see politicians unite to heal the Gulf.

I see the Gulf waters and shores, water ways and wetlands crystal clear, radiant and clear like the light of 10,000 suns. I see the sun dance on the sparkling waters of the Gulf like diamonds.

Aumakua, Mai kai po wai ola, ho’ikea mai i ke ola

Amama Uanoa Lele A Kua Lau

It is Done.

Aloha nui loa

Mahalo nui loa.

More on Ho’oponopono

Article by Joe Vitale

“Two years ago, I heard about a therapist in Hawaii who cured a complete ward of criminally insane patients–without ever seeing any of them. The psychologist would study an inmate’s chart and then look within himself to see how he created that person’s illness. As he improved himself, the patient improved.

When I first heard this story, I thought it was an urban legend. How could anyone heal anyone else by healing himself? How could even the best self-improvement master cure the criminally insane?

It didn’t make any sense. It wasn’t logical, so I dismissed the story.

However, I heard it again a year later. I heard that the therapist had used a Hawaiian healing process called ho ‘oponopono. I had never heard of it, yet I couldn’t let it leave my mind. If the story was at all true, I had to know more.

I had always understood “total responsibility” to mean that I am responsible for what I think and do. Beyond that, it’s out of my hands. I think that most people think of total responsibility that way. We’re responsible for what we do, not what anyone else does. The Hawaiian therapist who healed those mentally ill people would teach me an advanced new perspective about total responsibility.

His name is Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len. We probably spent an hour talking on our first phone call. I asked him to tell me the complete story of his work as a therapist. He explained that he worked at Hawaii State Hospital for four years. That ward where they kept the criminally insane was dangerous. Psychologists quit on a monthly basis. The staff called in sick a lot or simply quit. People would walk through that ward with their backs against the wall, afraid of being attacked by patients. It was not a pleasant place to live, work, or visit.

Dr. Len told me that he never saw patients. He agreed to have an office and to review their files. While he looked at those files, he would work on himself. As he worked on himself, patients began to heal.

“After a few months, patients that had to be shackled were being allowed to walk freely,” he told me. “Others who had to be heavily medicated were getting off their medications. And those who had no chance of ever being released were being freed.”

I was in awe.

“Not only that,” he went on, “but the staff began to enjoy coming to work. Absenteeism and turnover disappeared. We ended up with more staff than we needed because patients were being released, and all the staff was showing up to work. Today, that ward is closed.”

This is where I had to ask the million dollar question: “What were you doing within yourself that caused those people to change?”

“I was simply healing the part of me that created them,” he said.

I didn’t understand. Dr. Len explained that total responsibility for your life means that everything in your life- simply because it is in your life–is your responsibility. In a literal sense the entire world is your creation.

Whew. This is tough to swallow.

Being responsible for what I say or do is one thing. Being responsible for what everyone in my life says or does is quite another. Yet, the truth is this: if you take complete responsibility for your life, then everything you see, hear, taste, touch, or in any way experience is your responsibility because it is in your life.

This means that terrorist activity, the president, the economy–anything you experience and don’t like–is up for you to heal. They don’t exist, in a manner of speaking, except as projections from inside you. The problem isn’t with them, it’s with you, and to change them, you have to change you.

I know this is tough to grasp, let alone accept or actually live. Blame is far easier than total responsibility, but as I spoke with Dr. Len, I began to realize that healing for him and in ho ‘oponopono means loving yourself. If you want to improve your life, you have to heal your life. If you want to cure anyone–even a mentally ill criminal–you do it by healing you.

I asked Dr. Len how he went about healing himself. What was he doing, exactly, when he looked at those patients’ files?

“I just kept saying, ‘I’m sorry’ and ‘I love you’ over and over again,” he explained.

That’s it?

That’s it.

Turns out that loving yourself is the greatest way to improve yourself, and as you improve yourself, you improve your world. Let me give you a quick example of how this works: one day, someone sent me an email that upset me. In the past I would have handled it by working on my emotional hot buttons or by trying to reason with the person who sent the nasty message. This time, I decided to try Dr. Len’s method. I kept silently saying, “I’m sorry” and “I love you,” I didn’t say it to anyone in particular. I was simply evoking the spirit of love to heal within me what was creating the outer circumstance.

Within an hour I got an e-mail from the same person. He apologized for his previous message. Keep in mind that I didn’t take any outward action to get that apology. I didn’t even write him back. Yet, by saying “I love you,” I somehow healed within me what was creating him.

I later attended a ho ‘oponopono workshop run by Dr. Len. He’s now 70 years old, considered a grandfatherly shaman, and is somewhat reclusive. He praised my book, The Attractor Factor. He told me that as I improve myself, my book’s vibration will raise, and everyone will feel it when they read it. In short, as I improve, my readers will improve.

“What about the books that are already sold and out there?” I asked.

“They aren’t out there,” he explained, once again blowing my mind with his mystic wisdom. “They are still in you.”

In short, there is no out there.

It would take a whole book to explain this advanced technique with the depth it deserves. Suffice it to say that whenever you want to improve anything in your life, there’s only one place to look: inside you.

When you look, do it with love.”
