Brian Tracy stated that, "You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude toward what happens to you, and in that, you will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master you."
The original goals were to clean and clear the energy packets/triggers – those compartmentalized, buried, swallowed, stuffed, painful memories and to become a healthy guardian, advocate, friend, steward, custodian of and to all 'parts' of the Self at and for all ages and stages of your life. To eliminate self-sabotage – to be healthily spontaneous and to be steering the boat again (for some, it will be for the first time).
It was also to move from being guided by fear, pain, and fear of more pain into living fully in the present - to peace, tranquility, serenity, and being available for the full palace of possibilities that exist in the now. Being authentically present and responsive – rather than stuck and reactive. Moving from addictions and artificial grace to a state of true gratefulness (grace and attitude of gratitude) – from being dis-spirited and possibly over-using spirits (alcohol) into embracing your spiritual nature.
Huna author, teacher, and practitioner Serge King also points out that, "Critical analysis …is recognition and recommendation without judgement." (1990 p. 93) He also takes the view that "If ever a group of people could be said to follow a system of spiritual democracy, it would be the shamans of the world." (ibid. p. 19)
The Huna philosophy consists of seven basic principles:
- The world is what you think it is.
- There are no limits.
- Energy flows where attention goes.
- Now is the moment of power.
- To love is to be happy with – love is the only ethic needed in Huna.
- All power comes from within.
- Effectiveness is the measure of truth.
The Kahunas look at things in terms of energy flow, and as far as they are concerned, an idea or belief can block energy flow as much as muscle tension can. They practice what is called "Lomi-Lomi," described as "bioenergetic massage." The work done by the practitioner also includes working on the mind of the client, but it is similar to Swedish or Esalen massage, acupressure, polarity therapy, and positive mental programming. (King 1985, p. 92) They refer to working on and releasing "complexes," which could be seen as similar to the COEX packets that were described by Stanislav Grof. The practice of lomi lomi is part of what the hunas call kala, and apart from the bodywork, they also focus on clearing the mind of guilt and resentments, and forgiveness of self and others. (p. 161)
As we can embrace philosophies such as Huna, the Hawaiians also utilise Ho'oponopono, as a means of healing, to 'clean and clear,' to experience life without triggers or 'frozen' energy, to let go/forgive and restore. It has many similarities to Restorative Justice and Truth and Reconciliation. The most well-known practitioner and modern-day guide to this is Dr. Hew Len Ihaleakala, who was mostly brought to the world's attention by author Joe Vitale in his co-written book 'Zero Limits.'
The Ho'oponopono Prayer below is an example of wanting to no longer carrying any old 'weight' around, like a sack of coals that would just get heavier over time.
_"Divine creator, father, mother, son as one…. If I, my family, relatives, or ancestors have offended you, your family, relatives, and ancestors in thoughts, words, deeds, or actions from the beginning of our creation to the present, we ask for forgiveness…. Let this cleanse, purify, release, cut all the negative memories, blocks, energies, or vibrations, and transmute these unwanted energies to pure light… And it is done." _

Collapsing and Dissipating = Closure = Freedom.
Maintenance = grounding in today and in good health.
Yesterday no longer determines how tomorrow will be!
