How did I get to Ho'oponopono?How did I get to Ho'oponopono?

Morrnah Nalamaku Simeona (May 19, 1913 – February 11, 1992) was recognized as a Kahuna lapaʻau (healer) in Hawaii. She was honored by the State of Hawaii as a Living Treasure in 1983.
Creator of Self Identity through Ho'oponopono, Morrnah founded Pacifica Seminars in the 1970s and in 1980 The Foundation of 'I', Inc. (Freedom of the Cosmos).
Self I-dentity through Ho'oponopono uses techniques to create a working partnership among the three parts of the mind or self, subconscious, conscious and superconscious.
"The main purpose of this process is to discover the Divinity within oneself. The Ho'oponopono is a profound gift which allows one to develop a working relationship with the Divinity within and learn to ask that in each moment, our errors in thought, word, deed or action be cleansed. The process is essentially about freedom, complete freedom from the past". – Morrnah Nalamaku Simeona
Self I-dentity through Ho'oponopono allows us to reclaim our personal inner connection with Love, our Divine Source, resulting in Peace, Harmony and Freedom. Morrnah's updated version of this ancient Hawaiian philosophy of problem solving was left to mankind as a gift to be shared and practiced.
Before Morrnah's updated version, the ancient form of Ho'oponopono meant that the whole family had to be present. Nobody could be absent. There was a moderator and each member had the chance to ask forgiveness from the others. You see, nowadays families don't live close or together as they once did. To reunite the whole family and put them all in a room at the same time would be very challenging.
Dr. Ihaleakalá worked, traveled and presented with Morrnah for years and also updated the Self I-dentity through Ho'oponopono to make it even easier and more applicable in modern times. The new process became individualized so that it could be practiced alone.
I remember Ihaleakalá once told me, "if I would have told you guys 10 years ago there was nobody out there, you would have run away as fast as you could." Now we are ready to entertain the idea that it is just our thoughts (memories) of our family. There is nothing really "out there", it is all inside of us and our memories.
I can tell you from experience, since I took my first Self I-dentity training, things have gotten so much easier. See, the Universe is moving faster, and we are still stuck trying to "understand it all!"
I took my first training with Ihaleakalá in July of 1997 in Omaha, Nebraska, this is when I invited him to come to Los Angeles. I coordinated (sponsored) Self-Identity through Ho'oponopono (SITH) for the first time in January of 1998. At that time I was still practicing and attending other seminars. It was not until around the middle of 1999 , after taking several SITH trainings and coordinating a lot of other trainings for Ihaleakalá in California and Argentina, that I realized I had found what I was looking for and decided to ride one horse.
I remember one afternoon Ihaleakalá came back from walking with tears in his eyes, he said, "I just realized that all God is asking from us, is to take good care of ourselves and to say I am sorry. That is it."
Throughout the twelve years I lived with Ihaleakalá, he shared with me the many cleaning tools that would appear to him during consultations, trainings, meditations and long walks.
On another occasion Ihaleakalá told me that God didn't know how to make it easier so we would do it, he continued to say, "God asked me: what do they like to eat? I will put it in their food!"
I traveled with Ihaleakalá to Amsterdam, Brussels, France, England and many other countries. He enrolled and attended as a student, at the first Ho'oponopono training in Ireland, where I presented with Mary Koehler (Master Coordinator now of IZI LLC). We then continued to present trainings in Mt. Shasta, San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Buenos Aires, Argentina.
By that time Ihaleakalá decided to retire. Yes, he had retired at one point and California was the last center he let go. This was sometime in 2000 or 2001 and also when I felt in my heart I could do this, I could teach Ho'oponopo. I asked the Foundation for approval and they decided to meditate on it, they then gave me their blessings and this is when I started teaching.
I taught Self I-dentity through Ho'oponopono (SITH) through the Foundation of I Inc (Freedom of the Cosmos) for those years, until 2004, when I asked permission to use their materials and dedicate myself to teaching in Spanish.
Well, the rest is a long story, one I will share with you on another occasion. So, after many years of having a double career, in November of 2008 I decided to leave my very stable career as a tax accountant in Los Angeles, not because I had savings or was debt free, on the contrary. As always, every time I made illogical, non-sense decisions, I always got the most amazing results. Now I am debt free and travel the world teaching Ho'oponopono in a very practical and down to earth way.
Ho'oponopono works for everybody! And can change your life professionally and personally. I am a living testimony that the results are guaranteed.
