"Please forgive me. I am sorry. I love you. Thank you." Dr Hew Len
remarkable Dr Ihaleakala Hew Len, a Hawaiian healer works with and
teaches a powerful self-healing, self improvement system known as
Ho'oponopono Healing Technique. This article summaries his incredible
story together with providing a brief explanation of Ho'oponopono and
how it can be applied.
A summary of Dr Len's incredible story:
twenty years ago, Dr Len miraculously healed a ward of mentally ill
criminal patients at a Hawaii State Hospital using Ho'oponopono.
a University trained physician Dr Len he did not create Ho'oponopono,
yet he should be credited for simplifying and improving the process. He
diligently studied under the guidance of his teacher Morrnah Nalamaku
Simeona, a Hawaiian traditional healer and international teacher until
she passed away in 1992.
From 1984 - 1987 Dr Len was staff
psychologist for a Hawaiian State Hospital where he oversaw the high
security facility which housed criminally insane male patients. These
patients were deemed as dangerous: they had committed violent crimes
such as murder, rape, assault and because of their degrees of 'insanity'
were locked into this high security psychiatric facility. Naturally,
violence against each other and staff members was common.
in 1987, as violence in this facility had virtually ceased, wrist and
ankle restraints were no longer required. As the overall spirits and
order improved, new off-site activities were introduced to these former
violent patients. As patients improved and healed they were transferred
to non-violent wards or released altogether. Within a mere three years
the entire facility was closed ... an incredible miracle!
How did these miraculous changes occur?
Len is reported as saying he did not do any therapy or counsel these
patients. In fact, he literally did not see these patients in person
either! Quite simply, and on a daily basis, he practiced this
Ho'oponopono process which included accepting 100% responsibility for
everything he experienced - this he says is what caused such miraculous
transformation within these patients. In you are skeptical, this process
has been well documented and witnessed by the State Hospital's staff
who worked in this challenging environment.
What is Ho’oponopono? How does it work?
Dr Len is on record saying, "I didn't heal them. I healed part of myself that created them."
What specifically does Dr Len mean by, 'part of myself that created them?'
is fundamental key to the entire foundation and process of Ho'oponopono
because according to Dr Len, we are 100% responsible for everything ...
everything and everywhere! Responsible not only our personal mistakes
and problems but our personal successes too.
also means if someone, who could be anywhere in the world, does
something and you became aware of that action, you are also 100%
responsible for that too. This may seem somewhat harsh, but when you
realise you are your world, and the world is a mirror reflection of
everything you are, the picture begins to take on a totally different
Being 100% responsible is not the same as feeling
infinitely guilty for miseries and wrongdoings, instead this is a
reminder of your creative powers within. Therefore, instead of being
driven by petty egoic desires, everything becomes effortlessly available
and Divinely inspired.
It should now be clear that Ho'oponopono
is a constant cleaning process. Cleaning away subconscious garbage or
'data' as Dr Len calls it and it is this data which runs us. Our data is
at the root of everything we experience. Jesus said, "love your
enemies" and according to Dr Len these 'enemies' actually referred to
are all our negative emotions of anger, hate, greed, judgements,
resentment etc. All of which contributes towards the data that runs us
causing us our pain and suffering. Therefore, when we change the data
within, the outer world changes.
Regrettably, we consistently
apply dead or outdated data much of the time as the basis for our
beliefs, perceptions, experiences and actions.
cleaning is the essence and actual practise of Ho'oponopono. To release
this outdated and obsolete data there are specific words, much like
mantras, that are repeated continuously while cleansing one's self of a
specific issue, memory or event.
These Ho’oponopono constant cleaning phrases are simply:
I love you. Please forgive me. I am sorry. Thank you.
Repeating these phrases will initiate self transformation, which is
precisely what Dr. Hew Len did to invite divine transformation to his
work and surroundings at the Hawaiian hospital. Although these words may
appear simplistic, they are immensely powerful especially when uttered
with as much sincerity as possible, either silently or aloud, to the
Divine or whatever you believe your True Creator to be.
