How to forgive someone who hurt you: Ho’oponopono

Ho’oponopono is an ancient Hawaiian prayer used for healing, transformation, inner-peace and self-love. 

It’s a prayer/ritual that I was introduced to whilst completing Angelic Reiki practitioner training in 2012. Yet, wasn’t a prayer that I naturally gravitated toward until more recently.

Ho’oponopono is a really simple and effective prayer that you can say aloud or to yourself whenever there has been disharmony or discord between you and another.

By saying the prayer you are beginning and facilitating that process of clearing the energy of the pain, frustration, jealousy, anger, trauma or any other lower vibrational energy that you are carrying, as well as that which exists between you and the other person.

Ho’oponopono Prayer

The words of this prayer are simple and easy to remember:

Meanings of the mantras

Please forgive me
When you are saying this you are acknowledging and accepting responsibility for your energy. Cleansing the energy.

I’m sorry
When you are saying that you are sorry you are accepting responsibility for the part you played – the thoughts, actions and emotions – that have kept this discord alive.

I love you
Now you are extending your love to yourself, the other person and beyond.

Thank you
Expressing gratitude to your self and the universe for supporting you in transmuting the energy and bringing healing to the situation.

Now, it’s worth remembering that forgiveness and healing are a process. This means that it can often take time, particularly when the wounds and pain run deep.

Also, forgiveness is not about the other person, justifying behaviour or forcing someone to apologise for what you perceive to be wrong.

This is releasing energy that’s weighing you down and may be even leading you down a road of pain, as well as misalignment. You deserve better.

Use this prayer as and when you feel guided. As often as you feel that you want to. Allow the peeling away of the layers of density and un-forgiveness to occur naturally, at the rate that’s right for you. Just be open.
