And while this really belongs at the top level (holistic), it can actually used at any of the lower levels.
The relief is immediate, when you understand the actual theory of it and apply it with the intent of cleaning and resolving blockages wherever they may exist.
On the objective level, it is simply a method of relieving anxiety or emotional stress. And that link above really gives more data about it.
Dr. Hew Len boiled it down to a simplicity of:
- "I'm sorry."
- "Please forgive me."
- "I love you."
If you look over these from a larger viewpoint, you can see that it consists of:
(I point out there, and here as well, that Charles Hannel and Thomas Troward pointed out that Love is the primal element which was and is used in creating this universe around us.)
A rephrasing of this could also be:
- "I observe and understand."
- "Thank you"
- "Be Blessed"
Now at the highest level (holistic), this becomes even simpler: "I Grok."
That then encompasses the whole, as the whole situation becomes part of you and your responsibility.
As you use this, you can see applications on all other levels. Ho'oponopono (Big H) becomes a great tool when being in psychic rapport with anything or anyone (subjective level), and also it is a way to resolve dream situations on the symbolic level - another tool to apply during lucid dreaming.
The above-linked post deals with using it on the objective level - a simple way of getting unwanted emotional states resolved. Of course, since it is so powerful, it can have miracle-type results. (This also includes politicians, IRS agents, and lawyers who may be impinging on you.) But I'll leave that for you to discover, as you test this out and apply it in your own life.
