After years of practicing and teaching the Self I-Dentity
through Ho`oponopono® process, this phrase made me
go back to the very beginning of my learning and
choosing to use this process.
I am a simple person and needed to keep it simple.
All I needed to hear was “Peace begins with me” and
this is how to do it.
The meaning of the word ‘conflict’ is a ‘mental
struggle resulting from incompatible or opposing
needs, drives, wishes or external or internal
demands. Simply speaking, conflict is a fight,
battle or war, a competition or opposing action.
The word Ho`oponopono means to correct, to make
right, to rectify an error.
The word ‘mental’ means, ‘of and relating to the
Self I-Dentity through Ho`oponopono® is an updated
Hawaiian problem solving process to release memories
that are experienced as problems/stress
‘If we can accept that we are the sum total of our
past thoughts, emotions, words, deeds and actions
and that our present lives and choices are colored
or shaded by this memory bank of the past, then we
begin to see how a process of correcting or setting
aright can change our lives, our families and our
society.’—Morrnah Nalamaku Simeona
When we experience problem/stress/fear/conflict in
our lives, if we are willing to look closely, we
find that the cause of the
problem/stress/fear/conflict is a memory. The
emotions attached to the memory affect us in our
daily lives. Our subconscious associates what is
happening in our present life with a memory from the
Every thought/memory from when we were first created
is stored within our subconscious or what the
Hawaiians call the Unihipili or the Child within us.
This computer bank is an integral part of the Self.
The Self is made up of the Child/subconscious/Unihipili,
the Mother/conscious or Uhane and the Father/superconscious/Aumakua.
In connection with Divinity/Creator/Love, this makes
up our Self I-Dentity, our Inner family. Every atom,
cell and molecule has an inner family.
The Self I-Dentity through Ho`oponopono® process is
a simple way to find Divinity within, develop a
working relationship with that Divine part of
oneself and learn to ask that errors in our
thoughts, words, actions and deeds be cleaned.
Do we need to know what the memory is? No. Our only
job is to ask that the memory within us be cleansed.
The Self I-Dentity through Ho`oponopono® process
provides simple ways in which to do this on a moment
by moment basis.
There is no need to analyze, figure out, solve,
manage, cope or control problems. All that is needed
is to go directly to the Creator and ask that the
error/thought/memory be corrected and cleaned. Only
Divinity can do this. Divinity/Creator/Love knows us
and what memory is replaying.
What is going on in the world is only a reflection
of our thoughts/memories replaying. With the Self I-Dentity
through Ho`oponopono® , one only has to ask that the
memory being reflected as a problem/fear/conflict be
cleansed. Divinity/Creator/Love will do the
cleansing and restores Balance, Peace and Love.
