Ho'oponopono - Letting go of fearHo'oponopono - Letting go of fear
Published: January 24, 2010
Our reality includes all our programs, memories, beliefs, attachments, emotions, and expectations. These have been gathered through many years. We have been blind and deaf for eons of time. We are completely drugged, looking for love, approval and appreciation in the wrong places and from the wrong people. We search for success, power and material things, thinking that they will "make" us happy. We tend to try to change people because we think if they change, we'll be happy. We constantly give our power away by thinking that our happiness depends on other people and external circumstances.
Stop the world, I want to get off! Don't you sometimes feel like screaming that? Well, we are now in the middle of the song, so we need to dance until it comes to an end. We can change the dance and how it ends if we just let go. It is imperative to wake up and see things as they really are. We must stop letting our false reality control us. I know it is terrifying to let go of everything we thought was real. Our fear is inevitable, when we let go of the known and embrace the unknown.
The beautiful thing about the process we learn through Ho'oponopono, is that everything you are looking for, what your soul is longing for, resides in this unknown. Sure, you will feel fear when it comes to letting go of reality as you know it, but you must do it anyway. Know this, if you are willing to ask for help, the help will be right there for you. All you need to do is ask, because you have free choice. The Universe cannot intervene if you do not request it. When you practice Ho'oponopono, essentially what you are doing is asking for help. You take 100% responsibility for your reality and give God permission to take you by the hand, guide you and protect you. You are not alone. Ask and you shall receive.
Be willing to observe the fear, knowing that you are not that fear. You are above it. By doing this, the fear will immediately melt and disappear. As soon as fear goes, in will come inspiration and guide you back to paradise, even if just for one split second! And when the next memory of doubt or fear appears, just keep letting go, moment by moment. When fear shows up, do me a favor: Breathe. The first thing we do when fear comes up is to stop breathing, so just this small step will go a long way in helping you to let go of your fears.
Think about it, you have the possibility of seeing the universe as God sees it, without fear. It is like seeing for the first time, like a newborn. It is another chance to start over. The happiness you are seeking is behind every "thank you" and "I love you." Keep saying this to your fear, doubt, opinions and judgments before you let them go. Be grateful for fear, as it shows up to give you another chance to let go. It is a good alarm clock, telling you it is time to wake up, to do something differently, or maybe it is time to move, to take action. Fear is something we create in our minds, and our belief in it gives it power. As soon as we become aware of this truth, fear simply melts away.
