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).

methods, but doing so may
slow, stop or even trigger misfortune due to the
confusion of the inner child.
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
convening a family conference, a mediator (a Kahuna or
an Elder with special skills) performed prayer rounds,
formulated the problems and addressed the violations.
mutual confessions, repentance and forgiveness took
place. Everyone let go of everyone, so that the 'aka
cords' (threads of fine, disharmonic energy lines at the
astral level) were cut.All participants of the event
released themselves from the given problem and it ended
with a ceremonial feast that often contained the food of
kala-seaweed (limu kala),a symbol of 'letting go'.

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.
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
in a problem now do not have to be physically present
(e.g the extended family), but are mentally present by
including a problem list, from whatever time and place
they are in. Likewise, she introduced the Divine Creator
(our oldest spiritual ancestor) as the only problem
solver (after praying)instead of other high
spirit-beings as in the traditional version.
However, Morrnah's final
version did not appear suddenly, but underwent
about a dozen refinements since 1974 (with ever changing
titles e.g. 'The way of the 'I' ', 1978, and
'Self-Identity through Ho'oponopono', 1986).
Only her LAST version from 1991 is the version she
intended to be final, detailed in the book 'The Coronation of
Consciousness'). It is also the only one PACIFICA
SEMINARS is teaching in seminars and lectures.
A 'problem' means the
of a negative cause'. Ho'oponopono does not focus
on effects. It is cleansing the causes. The causes of
the problems are dissolved by Divine blessing
(Haw.'ho'omana' or 'summoned divine energy'):
All unwanted, negative bonds
between people, animals, plants, objects,
spirits, etc.are finally and harmoniously 'cut'-for the
benefit of ALL participants involved in given problems.
It is pure karma extinction. Through
this, the dark side of the astral world is also purified
and its glittering world
returns. A new creation begins.
