I often have the opportunity to attend classes which center around emerging technologies in health, wellness, personal growth, and healing. I’m Sorry. Please forgive me. Thank You. I love you. Is a mantra that appears to be showing up in the common vernacular of healers and teachers of all kinds.
It’s showing up in all areas of life, logic, personal growth, and expansive thought. From practitioners to masters, they are all adopting this phrase as one of the tools in their toolbelt for life-changing results in their clients and loved ones.
This magic phrase hails from Hawaii and is referred to as ho’oponopono by locals. Dr. Joe Vitale (who you might remember from The Secret) was responsible for introducing and popularizing the ho’oponopono concept across the United States, by observing and reporting Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len’s use of the technique.
I have run across many variations of the ho’oponopono phrasing, but the one that appears to be gaining the most popularity among the healing community is,
I’m Sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. I love you.
Reportedly, Dr. Len changed the lives of criminally insane patients by performing his ho’oponopono ritual by placing one hand over his heart, the other on the file of the patient, and mindfully repeating the words, “I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. I love you,” over and over again, then moving on to the next file.
Some notable components of this modality are that it requires no knowledge of the patient of the process taking place, the doctor conducting the exercise had never met the patients, and only soulful intent while repeating the words, “I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. I love you,” was necessary to achieve the incredible results throughout the asylum.
Among the healing community, following a treatment session, it is becoming more common to use the ho’oponopono technique, as if sealing the work with a sacred kiss by repeating the words, “I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. I love you.”
There is a pseudoscience behind how the process works. Vitale and others offer training to certify practitioners in the use of this life-changing process, but this is not necessary for anyone to tap into this incredible healing gift from the heavens.
I have found, after learning about this technique and using it only for a short while, how easy it is to apply ho’oponopono at any time to any situation or circumstance.
This technique is available to you, right now. There is no need to take a course or to be certified to wield this powerful healing modality. You can witness the life-changing effects without even knowing how it works. This really can be your personal secret weapon for healing yourself, your loved ones, complete strangers, or the world, just by
- Placing your hand over your heart
- Mindfully repeating these words
- I’m sorry.
- Please forgive me.
- Thank you.
- I love you.
- And allow the love energy flowing through your heart with your pure intention do the work.
Of course, you may seek out classes, certification, or at the very least check into the work of Dr, Joe Vitale and his book, Zero Limits for more information, but don’t let the lack of information keep you from trying it out for yourself.
You can apply this technique to anyone or anything, from a politician to a natural disaster. Whenever you hope for someone to have a better life, or want to see an entire shift in consciousness. Anytime you feel quickened or upset or would like to see something different, you can use your heartfelt intention and repeat the words, “I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. I love you,” and make the world a better place.
