Ho’oponopono - behind the scenesHo’oponopono - behind the scenes
Published: November 21, 2011
Many of you express your concern regarding the veracity or quality of those who teach Ho’oponopono. Very frequently, you write to me and ask if I gave this or that person permission to teach after he or she took the workshop with me only once, and I make it clear that I have permission to use the registered material, but I do not have permission to grant permission to teach.
What’s most important, and what my organizers in different parts of the world always ask me to continue clarifying, is that Ho’oponopono is not taught only through words. And that is why, as Ihaleakalá often says: “It seems easy to teach, but it isn’t.” This last time I was in Romania, as a result of my interaction with a young girl, I was able to demonstrate this concept in a practical way and in the present moment. This was also an excellent confirmation for me, as I always learn a lot from the children who come to my workshops. I enjoy them and I love having them there. As I always say, children are impossible to deceive.
This last time in Bucharest, a five year old girl came to the workshop with her mother. The mother was taking the workshop for a second time and the girl had asked her mother to take her with her the next time she took it. At several points during the workshop, the young girl would walk up and down in front of me. She would look at me and observe me as I spoke and then she would bring me some very beautiful and colorful drawings that she made herself and where she wrote that she loved me. Of course, the audience witnessed these interactions, and we all smiled. At one point I asked, “Do you think I am receiving love letters because of what I’m saying with words? Not at all. This little girl is able to see what I do not say to you. She can see the work (the cleaning) that I do while I speak!" Thus, I was able to verify that what matters most is the work we do behind the scenes, with ourselves. It is also very important to clean and prepare before, during and after teaching.
We receive incredible benefits when we complete a Ho’oponopono workshop with somebody who offers it with authorization and, above all, is prepared because he or she has taken many Ho’oponopono workshops and, especially, has practiced it for a long time. It is also important for the person to abstain from practicing other techniques besides Ho’oponopono. This ensures that the teacher’s inner child will not be confused and will be able to do the cleaning automatically. It is important for the person to know how to prepare the room to turn it into a sanctuary, so that the room itself can protect us and help us do the cleaning. That’s right. When we teach Ho’oponopono correctly and with permission, the Universe shields and protects us. That is why, when in these workshops, people let go of things that would have otherwise taken them lifetimes to overcome. The blessings we receive in these instances are amazing.
Another clue that generally indicates when a Ho’oponopono workshop is done correctly is that it leaves us a bit tired due to the amount of cleaning done during the training. I always remind my audience, “Even if it seems like you were there doing nothing, everybody does a lot of work during the workshops, so if you feel like going to sleep when you get home, go ahead, don’t even think about it. Pay attention to your bodies and go to bed.” It’s quite amazing also that even people who have insomnia or difficulties sleeping often report the next day that they slept better than they have in ages, for many hours and without waking up!
Dr. Ihaleakalá always says, “While you are in the room, you will be completely protected. Once outside, it all depends on you.” I once asked him what our inner children did while we were at the workshop, and he responded, “While they are here, their Unihipilis (inner children) get along, play cards, etc. But once they leave, that’s a different story.”
Some people trust the power of the workshops so much that they take them in absentia! Can you imagine that? People see results even when they participate in absentia! As Dr. Ihaleakalá would say, “They are smart. They know that what gets erased from the people present at the workshop also gets erased from them.” Of course, this is only possible when the process is done correctly and the Universe is present, protecting and preparing everything.
Divinity tells us: When you move, “I” move. When you take a step, “I” take a step. But, when you stretch, “I” clean the way, but not one minute before or after.” That is why, sometimes, before we make a commitment, the process seems scary. You need to take the first step and offer your trust. I know it is scary, and that’s why we look for excuses, but when we trust, success is guaranteed!
The blessings you get when you show the Universe that you trust are unimaginable. The workshop is something that takes place between God and you. This is also why, unless you pay, you will not receive it. It’s important to appreciate its value and appreciate yourself. You must feel that you deserve it and that you give it to yourself. You can even stretch beyond your boundaries (feel the fear and do it anyway) if you cannot pay for it. All of these are different ways to show your trust to the Universe.
As Dr. Hew Len says, we work with very toxic memories during the workshop. I am aware that my worst enemies come to my workshops, and they do it to give me another chance to correct, to repair. I also know that only when I clean do you receive what is correct and perfect for you, and especially the protection we mentioned before. Not everybody receives or hears the same things. Did you know that? God does not treat us like cattle. We receive what we give. Each one of us is unique and receives that which is correct and perfect for each, but in order for that to happen, the teacher must know how to be at zero and clean while he or she speaks!
Teachers teach for themselves. The age of sacrifice is over. If we can get one of you to erase, what you erase will be erased from us as well. They say that we teach what we need to learn! I always tell my students that I have much more to erase than them. That is why I’m the teacher!
If I don’t know what is correct for me, how can I know what is correct for you? The same thing happens if you ask me something, and I give you an incorrect response because I don’t practice cleaning and I react from my memories instead of coming from Inspiration. This is not good for you or for me. Everything brings consequences.
We all need to continue taking Ho’oponopono courses to continue cleaning and learning how to come more and more from Inspiration. Ho’oponopono is like a retraining, and you need to take it many times and continue hearing the information to be able to reeducate yourself and reeducate your Unihipili (inner child).
I love you,
