Show Me A Miracle!

July 9, 2010

This is my final post about Zero Limits and the Hawaiian-born problem solving tool referred to as Self I-Dentity Ho’oponopono. I’ve posted daily this week in an effort to help make clear a process that (without being open to and reading the entire book) can be quite difficult to “get.” As I mentioned in my first post about the book, in order to even begin to understand the potential usefulness of this tool, you must have a good amount of faith and trust in the “unknown.”

I thought it would be effective to close then with a few definitions listed at the end of the book, drafted by Dr. Hew Len.

Here they are:

Ho’oponopono: I am an ancient Hawaiian problem solving process updated for today’s use by Morrnah Nalamaku Simeona Kahuna La pa’au, recognized as a Living Treasure of Hawaii in 1983. I am composed of three elements: repentance, forgiveness, and transmutation. I am a petition initiated by the Conscious Mind to Divine Intelligence to void memories to reestablish Self I-Dentity. I begin with the Conscious Mind.

Repentance: I am the beginning of the Ho’oponopono process initiated by the Conscious Mind as a petition to Divine Intelligence to transmute memories to Void. With me, the Conscious Mind acknowledges its responsibility for the memories replaying problems in its Subconscious Mind, having created, accepted, and accumulated them.

“I AM SORRY.”

Forgiveness: Along with Repentance, I am a petition from the Conscious Mind to Divine Creator to transform memories in the Subconscious Mind to Void. Not only is the Conscious Mind sorrowful, it is also asking Divine Intelligence for forgiveness.

“PLEASE FORGIVE ME.”

Transmutation: Divine Intelligence uses me to neutralize and to release memories to Void in the Subconscious Mind. I am available for use only by Divine Intelligence.

“THANK YOU.”

“I LOVE YOU.”

And, as I’ve already written, when “transmutation” occurs, you are at “zero” and miracles occur.

In closing, nothing speaks more to miracle creation (for me!) than A Course In Miracles (ACIM), which essentially tells us that it is our natural nature to create miracles, but our human error gets in our way. That human error is fear, or expressions of fear, as opposed to love.  In ACIM it speaks to the process of correction (like Ho’oponopono’s problem solving process), which contains these steps:

Know first that this is fear.

Fear arises from lack of love.

The only remedy for lack of love is perfect love.

Perfect love is the Atonement.

See the parallels?


May you send away your fear, and call up your perfect love.

May you see the miraculous being that you are, and always be miracle ready.

May you find your Self I-Dentity.

I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. I love you.

Stay tuned for my next Relaxed Book Club selection. I hope you will join me again. 🙂

Namaste,

In my first blog about Zero Limits I committed to blogging daily this week to help make more clear the purpose and benefits of the spiritual tool described in the book– Self I-Dentity Ho’oponopono.

Specifically, I wanted to share how co-author, Joe Vitale, author of a variety of books which suggest using “intention” or “intending” as a success tool for attracting anything to us in life (health, wealth, careers, relationships, etc.), no longer intends at all. He simply goes straight to “zero.”

He shares:

“This is mind-blowing. Since I wrote about the power of intention in my book The Attractor Factor, and since I spoke about it in the movie The Secret, coming to realize intentions aren’t my choice at all was a shock. It appears that what I thought I was doing when I set an intention was simply verbalizing an impulse already in motion from my brain. The question then becomes, what or who made my brain send the intention?”

In Zero Limits, Vitale looks back on his many successes and realizes that behind each one of them was an inspiration he acted upon and took 100% responsibility for.  He elaborates:

“None of them were directly created by me. In fact, what they all have in common is a spirit of Divine planning, with me a sometimes unwilling participant.”

“All of those ways (like intentions) have limitations. They are toys your mind plays with to keep you thinking you’re in charge. The truth is, you are not in charge, and the real miracles come when you let go of the toys and trust in a place inside yourself where there are zero limits. Where you want to be in life is behind all of those toys, which is behind the chatter of the mind and right there with what we call the Divine.”

Through spending lots of time with Dr. Hew Len and learning and practicing Self I-Dentity Ho’oponopono, Vitale learned that solely focusing on intending was actually fighting with “what is.” On the other hand, letting go (Ho’oponopono) was giving into the Divine and allowing transformation to happen (what can be…if you listen and let it!).

So, where do tools like affirmations, EFT, visualization, and intentions fit in? Are they worthless?

Absolutely not. I think we can all attest to using these techniques and seeing and feeling positive results in our lives.  At the same time, there are many people who use these techniques all the time and don’t get the results they expect. What’s the answer? Why did Joe make this major shift? Why does Joe no longer intend or even set goals?

He explains:

“There are at least three stages in life, beginning with you as a victim, them moving on to you as a creator of your life, and ending — if you’re lucky– with you becoming servant to the Divine. In the last stage, astonishing miracles happen– almost without you trying.”

“The other day a reporter asked me, ‘Where do you see yourself a year from now?’ In the past I would have given him a sincere accounting of what I hoped to achieve. I’d talk about my plans, goals, and intentions. I’d tell him about books I wanted to write or things I wanted to be, do, create, or buy. But, because of all the work I’ve done with Dr. Hew Len, I no longer state goals or intentions  or make plans for the future. So I instead replied with the truth of this moment: ‘Wherever I’ll be will be far better than what I can imagine right now.'”

This makes sense to me. We will go through our lives and meet many people who will never experience an “awakening.” They may remain stuck forever in victimhood, blame and conflict. Yet, some will awaken out of the victim stage and proceed to the “creator” stage, where they are beginning to take more responsibility for their lives, thoughts, experiences, actions, emotions and energy. Being the creator of your life is a GREAT thing! But, now, I see how much power there is in truly letting go and letting the Divine guide me and speak to me. Everything feels so much easier…like a tranquil ride down a river. Ahhh.

Do you have moments where you feel you’re pushing so hard to achieve something; almost going up-stream, yet never arriving? Can’t it be exhausting? Share your thoughts.

For Joe, when you are at “zero”:

“You begin to realize that your intentions are limitations. You begin to see that with all your newfound power, you’re still not able to control everything. You begin to realize that when you surrender to a greater power, miracles tend to happen. You learn to recognize inspiration when it comes to you, and you act on it. You agree to each moment. Miracles happen, and they constantly astonish you as they do.”

“When you come from the zero state where there are zero limits, you don’t need intentions. You simply receive and act. And miracles happen.”

So, I think Joe said this to Dr. Hew Len in the book, and I am claiming it for myself now…

I INTEND TO BE AT ZERO AND LIVE IN INSPIRATION! It’s a start. 🙂

Inspired,

Monique
