You may have heard of the Hawaiian therapist Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len, who never met any of his clients, but cured an entire ward of criminally insane patients.
How was he able to cure them?
He did this by simply reviewing each of his patients files, and used this simple Mantra to heal, not the patients, but himself. He said: “I am sorry”, “Please forgive me”, “Thank you”, “I love you”
Is this really possible? This sounds like a miracle, right?
Dr. Len used a simplified version of Ho’oponopono, that he calls Self I-Dentity.
The idea behind Ho’oponopono is that I am responsible for whatever problem I may have in my life.
This means anything that is happening to me outside, is actually only happening on the inside, in my mind, consciously and subconsciously
This is not an easy concept to accept, because it seems obvious to us on the surface that we have problems because of other people and our environment.
But maybe he is right, maybe there is no such thing as “outside”, and everything happens to us in our minds? So everything you see, and everything you hear, you experience in your mind. But you think it is ‘outside” of you.
You may think if you have a problem, or someone is mean to you, that this is the fault of other people or the environment. But Dr. Len says: No, it is all going on inside of yourself.
What you see outside yourself is all just information, and a reflection of your inner world!
If you think about it, this sounds pretty scary. And it is really hard to understand … at least at the beginning.
But if you accept that everything around you is information, which shows you what is really going on inside of you, wouldn’t you think that this must be a gift from the Gods?
If something is not right on the outside, something that is bothering you, then understand that this is just information, that something is not solved in your mind, or subconscious mind, and now you get the chance to clean this information by simply using the Mantra: “I am sorry”, “Please forgive me”, “Thank you”, “I love you”
Example: A man’s wife complains that he never helps around the house. He if offended, thinking that she is always complaining.
But now he understands that this is just information for him, information (may come from past experiences) in his mind, or subconscious mind, which needs to be corrected.
He asks himself: If I created a complaining wife, why did I do this? Maybe he realizes that he often feels worthless, and this negative thinking might have started in his childhood, at school. Or maybe he as no idea why, but accepts that something is going on inside of himself, not outside of himself.
What ever it might be, he can now decide what to do:
If he decides to get angry, and he thinks his wife is terrible, and he wishes her to leave him, and maybe she will leave him one day, he still would have something inside of him, which will always create this situation for him again in the future.
But when he decides to accept that this situation with his wife is an opportunity to change something inside of himself, he would start to think : “I am sorry”, “Please forgive me”, “Thank you”, “I love you”.
When he says ” I am sorry”, this is addressed only to himself, to Divinity (his God within him, or his Higher Self). He is sorry for creating this situation, and for the negative thoughts that he had, which separates him from love.
When he says “please forgive me”, he is asking himself, his divine self, for forgiveness from being separated from love.
When we says “thank you” he is thanking his Divinity for the opportunity to learn from his problems, and for forgiving himself.
When he says “I love you” to his Divinity, he will be united again with All That Is, and create PEACE in and around himself.

If this concept is still hard to understand, maybe you can see it from this point of view.
Let’s say, there is an Ego Self and your True Self, and both are a part of you. Your Ego Self is consciously and subconsciously creating situations in life that can be good or not so good, which is stopping you from living live through your True Self.
And when the Ego realizes what it did, it can change this by saying to the True Self: Please forgive me, I am sorry, Thank you, I love you.
But I think the best way is just to try it out, and see what happens in your life, and the positive changes it can create.
You need to do it to understand how it works, even if it feels strange.
Maybe you should give it a try?
