Hoʻoponopono (ho-o-pono-pono) is a Hawaiian practice of reconciliation and forgiveness.
Ho'oponopono means to make right. Essentially, it means to make it right with the ancestors, or to make right with the people with whom you have relationships. We believe that the original purpose of Ho'oponopono was to correct the wrongs that had occurred in someone's life including Hala (to miss the thing aimed for, or to err, to disobey) and Hewa (to go overboard or to do something to excess) which were illusions, and even 'Ino (to do harm, implying to do harm to someone with hate in mind), even if accidental.
Ho’oponopono, consists in mindfully repeating four simple phrases:
I love you.
Please forgive me.
