To give you an ideal of how powerful this practice is, Doctor Hew Len, cured every patient in the criminally insane ward of Hawaii’s State Hospital – without seeing a single patience. These inmates were rapist, murders and worse. Doctor Hew Len just set at his desk, with the Patiences file looking at what they had done and took note of the rage and anger that welled up in him.
To cleanse these Feelings in himself, he would repeat the four short phrases that make up Ho’Oponopono, pronounced Hollo Pono Pono. The feelings would leave him, and the Patiences would get better. They no longer needed to be sedated or shackled. They began being released. After three years the ward was shut down.
They have been using this in Hawaii for centuries and now it is in the mainstream. There are many videos on you tube. Many books have been written about it. When combined with Jesus, it can be even more powerful. Just as the Jesus Prayer, “Jesus have mercy on me a sinner”, it can be very powerful in keeping our focus on Jesus. It can eliminate most, if not all of our self-talk, which is usually negative and degrading.
There are just four short phrases, that are repeated. They are “I am sorry – Please forgive me – Thank you – I love you”. When we start with Jesus, the source of all power and healing, it becomes even more powerful. “Jesus, I am sorry – Please forgive me – Thank You – I love You”. It becomes a perfect “Act of Contrition”. Say it looking at the Crucifix, where we can see suffering Jesus when through for each one of us.
The Passion of Christ started with The Agony in the Garden, where He saw all our sins, the humiliation before Pilate, The Scourging at the Pillow, where His flesh actually fell to the ground. The Crowing with very sharp thrones, that pierced His scalp, the humiliation at the hands of the Roman Solders, the carrying of the cross, which weighed 80 to 100 pounds, on His wounded and emaciated body some 660 yards, (six plus football fields) and He only fell three times, which indicates He was covering a lot of ground between falls.
And always thinking of us, as He told the women of Jerusalem, “Weep not for me, but weep for your children and yourselves.”
After His third fall, Jesus is Stripped of His Garment, from His bloody body, nailed to the cross and hosted up to hang on the cross for three gruelingly painful hours, during which time He forgave those who had done this to Him, which includes us. He welcomed the good thief into Heaven, gave us His Mother. All of this to show His infallible love for us.
By saying over and over, “Jesus, I am sorry” (admitting it was our sins that crucified Jesus) “I am sorry – Please forgive me – Thank You – I love You”. It would be hard to imagine how often Jesus’ Name is taken in vain. He needs and highly deserves our love.
Say “Jesus, I am sorry – Please forgive me – Thank you – I love you” relacing your self talk, for at least 21 days and hopefully you will never stop, as it will help keep Jesus in the center of your life, where He belongs…
The Holy Spirit, the love between Jesus and His Heavenly Father, may come to dwell in you. How awesome would that be. Picture the Apostles before Pentecost and the Decent of the Holy Spirit.
Scared rabbits, abandoning Jesus during His Passion and Crucifixion. Locked in the Upper Room. Scared to death of the Jews. The Holy Spirit Descends on them and they go out and Baptism 3,000 people and bring Christianity to the world, despite horrendous persecution.
“Jesus, I love – Please forgive me – Thank You – I love You” can bring much healing to you and those around you, those in your thoughts and prayers. “Jesus, I am sorry – Please forgive me – Thank You – I Love You”.
Be of Good Cheree and spread the Cheree,
P.S. According to Ho’Oponopono, everything we think about, everything we encounter is in us. There is no out there.
