Authentic Ho'oponopono has
its origin in indigenous Hawaii and was adapted to modern
times by Morrnah Simeona. It is defined by the Hawaiian
scholar Mary Kawena Pukui as an irrevocable requirement.
"Spiritual cleansing in the context of family conference in
which interpersonal relationships through prayer,
discussion, confession, repentance and MUTUAL forgiveness
will be restored.“

Some words in this text can be exchanged without losing
their meaning, for example 'Family conference'with 'Group'
in Morrnah's universal version and' Interpersonal
relationships 'with unwanted circumstances'.
However, in a traditional version, the family conference is
of outstanding importance as the family was and is the
center of life on Hawaii.
The term 'mutual'
stands for the fact that the other one forgives as well.
This is possible only in the traditional Ho'oponopono (where
the participants of a given problem are physically present)
and the universal version of Morrnah (where the participants
are mentally present and connected by energetic iines).

is a way of life, a mindset that strives for harmony every
day, and is a problem-solving technique. Ho'oponopono is NOT
used to 'hear' the voice of higher spirits. These usually
have their own agenda, and want to rob people of their
sovereignty by telling them 'where to go' and
'what to do'. Ho'oponopono is NOT a 'magic wand'
and never goes above a person's freedom of choice.
After convening a family
conference, a mediator (a Kahuna or an Elder with special
skills) performed prayer rounds, formulated the problems and
addressed the violations.

Morrnah Simeona developed this
'universal' Ho'oponopono from the traditional Ho'oponopono,
creating something fundamentally new, while maintaining a
true Ho'oponopono as defined by Kawena.
The expression 'universal' in this
context means that Morrnah's path has been resolved in
several areas of Hawaiian thought and can now be easily
understood and applied by anyone, alone and without outside
Those involved in a

underwent about a dozen refinements
since 1974 (with ever changing titles e.g. 'The way of
the 'I' ', 1978, and 'Self-Identity through

A 'problem' means the
'effect of a negative cause'. Ho'oponopono does not

1913 in Honolulu, Hawaii; and died on
February 11, 1992 in Kirchheim near Munich, where she lived
with Michael Micklei and Yvette
Mauri, finishing her system. She was a kahuna la'au lapa'au
(herb healer), later lomi-lomi-nui-teacher before she
exclusively brought her
Ho'oponopono into the world.
Morrnah's final 14-step process is still shrouded in mystery
and will be known as the one that will end the suffering of
