Ho’oponopono, Self I-Dentity through Ho’oponopono (SITH), is an Hawaiian system of healing, problem solving and transformation developed by Morrnah Nalamaku Simeona an Hawaiian Kahuna Lapa’au. SITH is now commonly referred to as Ho’oponopono.
Morrnah Simeona (1913-1992) the developer of Self-I-Dentity Through Ho’oponopono (SITH) was an Hawaiin Kahuna Lapa’au kahea (one who uses words and chants to heal). SITH is based on the ancient Hawaiian healing system of Ho’oponopono (Ho Oh Pono Pono)
Morrnah Simeona was so respected and loved for her work with Ho’oponopono that in 1983 she was made a “National Living Treasure” by the Hawaiian people.
In Hawaiian the word Ho’oponopono means “to make right or to rectify an error.”
The Power of the Mind
The Ancient Hawaiians understood the power of the mind.
Centuries before mainstream science they identified the distinction between the Conscious Mind, Subconscious Mind, and Super-Conscious Mind, and the part they play in forming our present day circumstances.
Freedom from the Past
The main purpose of this process is
to discover the Divinity within oneself.
The Ho’oponopono is a profound gift which allows one
to develop a working relationship with the Divinity within
and learn to ask that in each moment,
our errors in thought, word, deed or action be cleansed.
The process is essentially about freedom,
complete freedom from the past”
Difference Between the Old & the New
The difference between the ancient system and the system developed by Morrnah is that:
- the ancient Hawaiian system is done within a group with a leader, while
- SITH is done by an individual.
The Ho’oponopono process is called “cleaning“.
Cleaning involves erasing recurring memories from our subconscious. These memories cause us to repeat harmful behaviour again and again.
Self I-dentity Through Ho’oponopono (SITH) builds on the traditional Hawaiian group process praying to the Divine Creator, and connecting problems with Reincarnation and Karma resulted in a unique new problem solving process, that was self-help rather than the traditional Hawaiian group process.
“Her system uses ho’oponopono techniques to create a working partnership among the three parts of the mind or self, which she calls by Hawaiian names, as well as by the terms subconscious, conscious, and superconscious.”
The Four Phrases of Ho’oponopono – SITH
Using the SITH Ho’oponopono process is quite simple and centres around the use of 4 phrases that are repeated over and over:
- I love you.
- I am sorry.
- Please forgive me.
- Thank you.
There is more to Self-I-Dentity Through Ho’oponopono (SITH) than just saying 4 phrases however it is a great way to begin. Here are some Ho’oponopono Resources that I have found useful.

Problems can be solved without knowing what the heck is going on! Realizing and appreciating
this is sheer relief and joy for me. Problem solving, part of the purpose for existence, is what
Self I-Dentity through Ho’oponopono is about. To solve problems, two questions must be
addressed: Who am I? Who’s in charge? To apprehend the nature of the Cosmos begins with
the insight of Socrates: “Know thyself.”
Who’s in charge? Most people, including those in the science community, deal with the world
as being a physical entity. Current research in DNA to identify causes and remedies for heart
disease, cancer, and diabetes is a prime example of this.
The Law of Cause and Effect: Physical Model Cause Effect Faulty DNA Heart, Disease, Cancer, Diabetes Physical Physical and Environmental Problems
The Intellect, the Conscious Mind, believes it is the problem solver and that it controls what happens and what is experienced. In his book User Illusion: Cutting Consciousness Down To Size, science journalist Tor Norretranders paints a different picture of Consciousness. He cites research that shows that decisions are made before Consciousness is aware of them. And that the Intellect believes that it decides. Norretranders also cites research that show that the Intellect is only conscious of between fifteen to twenty bits of information per second out of millions taking place below its awareness!
If not the Intellect, Consciousness, then who’s in charge?
Memories replaying dictate what the Subconscious Mind experiences. The Subconscious Mind experiences vicariously, mimicking, echoing memories replaying. It behaves, sees, feels, and decides exactly as memories dictate. The Conscious Mind too operates, without its awareness, by memories replaying. Memories dictate what it experiences.
Here are four Self I-Dentity through Ho’oponopono problem solving processes that can be
applied to reestablish Self I-Dentity through voiding memories replaying problems in the
- “I Love You.” When the Soul experiences memories replaying as problems, say to them mentally or silently: “I love you dear memories. I am grateful for the opportunity to free all of you and me.” “I Love You” can be repeated quietly again and again. Memories never go on vacation or retire unless you retire them. “I Love You” can be used even if you are not conscious of problems. For example, it can be applied before engaging in any activity such as making or answering a telephone call or before getting into your car.
- “Thank You”. This process can be used with or in place of “I Love You.” As with “I Love You,” it can be repeated mentally again and again.
- Blue Solar Water: Drinking lots of water is a wonderful problem solving practice, particularly if it is Blue Solar Water. Get a blue glass container with a non-metallic cover. Pour tap water into the container. Place the blue glass container either in the Sun or under a lamp for at least an hour. After the water is solarized, it can be used in several ways. Drink it. Cook with it. As a rinse after a bath or shower. Fruits and vegetables love being washed in blue solar water! As with “I Love You” and “Thank You” processes, Blue Solar Water voids memories replaying problems in the Subconscious Mind. So, drink away!
- Strawberries and Blueberries: These fruits void memories. They can be eaten fresh or dried. They can be consumed as jams, jellies and even syrup on ice cream!
I wish you Peace beyond all understanding. Ka Maluhia no me oe.
Peace be with you,

Ho’oponopono Secrets by Paul Jackson is a great introduction to the world of Self-I-Dentity Through Ho’oponopono (SITH). I have found this book very, very helpful and I still use it as reference as well as his website.
