Ho’oponopono: Trauma Healing with Mind-Body-Spirit connection…

love

What would you do if you were given another chance, a fresh start at wholeness?  What if there was a way to connect with everything, by connecting from within?  What if you could take all the mental and emotional turmoil and trauma, and process it so effectively, that even the scar tissue goes away?

I had an amazing opportunity to interview Mr. Jon Lovgren, an expert in trauma healing, by way of Ho’oponopono.  Below is that interview, with contact information so YOU TOO can get ahold of him, and see how you can get this amazing second chance at life, the second chance at oneness, attained with peace, hope, forgiveness, and love.

This interview brought to you straight from the paradise of  Hawaii, where it all started.

me:  What is Ho’oponopono?

               Jon:  “I call it, The Pathway to Peace, where miracles become expectations.”

           "Hoʻoponopono (ho-o-pono-pono) is an ancient Hawaiian practice of
           reconciliation and forgiveness. The word Ho‘oponopono comes from 
           ho‘o ("to make") and pono ("right"). This is the most common 
           definition of Ho'oponopono; however, when we delve deeper into 
           the meaning of the Hawaiian language, we find that pono actually 
           means, "to be at one with everyone and everything.”

 me:  What is the history of Ho’oponopono?

            Jon:  "Ho'oponopono was originally practiced in a group setting,
            often a family, and facilitated by a kahuna (priest, shaman, 
            etc.) or lapa`au (healer). A meeting would be held and everyone
            would speak their truth and any disagreements would be discussed
            until everyone was pono. Ho'oponopono was outlawed when the 
            white man Christianized Hawai`i. It was still practiced, but not
            openly."

            "In 1976 a lapa`au, Mornah Nalamaku Simeona, wanted to bring 
            Ho'oponopono to the individual level and she developed 
            Ho'oponopono as it is used today:"

                              I Love You

                              I am sorry

                              Please forgive me

                              Thank you

             "Two critical things about Ho’oponopono:
  1.          The most important things to remember about Ho'oponopono as it
             is used today is that it is first and foremost ALWAYS and ONLY
             about self and never about anyone or anything else. When we
             are saying it, we are saying it to ourselves the Divinity
             within.
  2.         Mornah was asked in an interview, “How often should one say
            Ho’oponopono?” Mornah replied, “All the time.” The more we say
            it, the more we start to notice results."

 

me:  What kind of traumas can this treat?

                 Jon:  “Ho’oponopono is very effective when used in any trauma situation.”

me:  What kind of physical ailments can this treat?

        Jon:  "Ho’oponopono can be used to treat any ailment.        
        I have used it to ease migraine headaches, flu, pneumonia and it has
        helped me to not have to take medication. Ho'oponopono healed 30 
        years of chronic back pain, 40 years of chronic foot pain, 
        anxiety/panic disorders, addiction. It is an excellent treatment for
        bi-polar, fibromyalgia, cancer and even though these have not been 
        healed completely in my direct experience, yet, the quality of life 
        has been getting better and medications are decreasing since 
        practicing Ho’oponopono."
         "Note regarding treating trauma and physical ailments: I do not say
         that Ho’oponopono can cure anything; however, it does heal. The 
         difference?  Curing means eliminating all evidence of disease, 
         while healing means becoming  whole."

me:  How does this work with the mind-body-spirit connection?

          Jon:  "Ho'oponopono works with the body-mind-spirit connection by 
          bringing them into synchronization or harmony. The triad in 
          Ho'oponopono is the  aumakua (higher conscious), uhane (conscious),
          and unihipili (un(sub)conscsious). We may also think of it in terms
          of consciousness, i.e. we all have three minds - the conscious mind
          which can barely remember what we had for breakfast, the 
          unconscious mind - which remembers everything from the beginning of
          creation (zero point), and the higher conscious self - our direct 
          connect to source. When we practice Ho’oponopono, we are instilling
          and  reinforcing love, humility, compassion, and gratitude within 
          our conscious-ness – that is to say all three. When all three are 
          in harmony, we start feeling better, we start seeing less drama, 
          less strife and experience more peace, joy, and happiness."

me:  How can you use this to release/reverse karma?

         Jon:  "Ho'oponopono teaches us that each one of us is 100% 
         responsible for everything in our lives - always have been and 
         always will be. When we embrace and embody that, there is no more 
         blame and we begin to think differently and we pay more attention 
         to our thoughts and actions. If we experience "bad karma" we ask 
         ourselves 2 questions: How did I create this for myself and why? 
         When we accept responsibility and forgive ourselves for creating it
         in the first place, we begin to heal and stop experiencing bad
         karma".

me:  What is the State of Zero?

         Jon:  "The State of Zero is often a reference to the 'Big Bang', 
         that moment of creation. The goal of Ho'oponopono is to get back 
         to Zero State, i.e. 100% pure, clean and clear - this reminds us 
         that there is no end to Ho'oponopono as we can never reach the 
         State of Zero, at least not in this lifetime."

 me:  What can you expect when practicing Ho’oponopono the first time?

         Jon:  "People often do not experience anything the first time, 
         depending upon why they are saying it. If they are in the middle of
         trauma, they usually feel calmer. I used to lead Mastermind groups 
         and one week my friend Sandi and I were talking story and she said,
         ' "I am saying Ho'oponopono, but I don't feel anything, it does not
         mean anything, I don't really know why I am saying it other than 
         you said it is a good idea." ' I responded saying, ' "Okay, Sandi -
         just keep saying it." '  The next week when we were on the phone 
         again, she was laughing and said, ' "I was saying Ho'oponopono 
         earlier in the week, and... I don't remember what I was saying it 
         about." ' Bingo! and that is the purpose of Ho'oponopono - to 
         cleanse and clear negative, low-vibration thoughts and feelings 
         that are no longer serving our highest good. So when she could not
         remember what she was saying it about, that is because what she was
         saying it about was cleared from her memory. Ho'oponopono is meant 
         to be a practice, a life-style."

me:  Are the results permanent?

         Jon:  "Yes."

me:  How would people get ahold of you to request a session or if they have further questions?

               Jon:  People may schedule a time to talk story with me about Ho’oponopono                         at http://getpono.com/sessions.htm or contact me directly

Why you should keep your money constantly moving…

FeaturedWhy you should keep your money constantly moving…

money in motion

Money is Energy:

Energy is all around us. In all actuality, everything, even us, is made from energy. Money is no different with the exception of one thing. We have made money a representation of trade, and of how much energy we put into our trade for society. This energetic representation is far more than a number, and far more than paper, and far more than what’s on your bank statement. Money energy is tangible.

Payment is an exchange of energy:

You are paid for the energy that you put into a job.

Those funds are a representation of YOUR energy.

Your funds are more than just a source to live off of. You are banking your energy.

Money wants to stay in motion:

Since we have created money as a representation for traded energy in a society, money by nature is an energy that wants to stay in motion. A society is always moving and changing. Because it represents your contribution to society, it takes on the very characteristics of society. It by nature needs to stay moving and changing. Money is meant to reproduce itself: Again, money takes on the characteristics of the society it’s sparked from. If an economy is failing or even dying, the money value will shrink. But if you take that same money and move it to a different economy that is growing, it too will grow.

Money manifestation:

Start small. Put 10-15% of your income into a project or goal. Do this all the time. Make sure the rest of your money isn’t stagnant, and it moving at all times, and it will grow. That percentage of your income directed to a project or goal imprints your very intentions on those specific funds. You are doing two different things here. You are allowing growth of money towards the success of your goal, but also creating a void where that money was, and that void must, by nature, be filled.

Law of Abundance:

“The Law of Abundance- there is ample money for everyone who knows how to acquire it and keep it. We live in an abundant universe in which there is sufficient money for all who really want it and are willing obey the laws governing its acquisition.”

Gratitude:

Being grateful for what you have always will make you match the correct vibration to receive more. In many ways, it’s been taught in spiritual and even religious circles that going without is the way we should be. Humility and service are amplified in many teachings. Yes, humility and service are important in any society, but gratitude for what you have will allow you abundance. That abundance is something you can take or leave.  But would you walk away from $100.00 crumpled in a trash can?  No…….so go ahead and don’t feel guilty about it!

The Art of Living in the Present

FeaturedThe Art of Living in the Present

Do you remember back to when you were a child, and you would become so involved in everything around you? You would notice everything, experience everything, learning everything. And then your imagination would take over, you would creatively add to the experience you were living?

It is sad, but most of us lose this as we get older. Responsibilities and bills, schedules and pay dates, the constant cycle of “adulting”. I want you to try to, just for one hour, experience everything around you, and allow yourself to think and wonder, question and learn. Take yourself back to age 7 or 8, when everything around you was new. I want you to describe how you feel, your skin, your mind. Exhilarated? That exhilaration is the instant reward you receive, when you live and think in the present.

The mechanism that causes us as children to experience everything in this way is fundamental to our growth. Life is about progression and growth, and that doesn’t stop at 20, 30, 40 or even 80, unless we allow it to. When in the proper mindset, we question, without prejudice. We ask the right questions. Learned behaviors are just that…learned, and we can set them aside. Ultimately you will be able to simplify your life in such a way that anxiety and depression will no longer exist for you. You will no longer be in a slump. You’ll be able to move your life in any direction you want, and at will.

This really is step one to creating the life that you want, and are meant to be living…the way you are meant to live it.

I challenge every reader to try these things, even for a day, and document the way you feel at the end. Better yet, try them everyday, but start over every day. 🙂 Because it truly is about living in the present.

  1. Grounding. Ground yourself. Take your shoes and socks off and really feel the ground beneath you. Describe out loud what you feel under your feet. Describe the air on air on your face. Describe what you see in front of you, the details, the color, reach out and touch it. Calm your mind. Listen to the air flow of your air conditioner or heater, concentrate on it until you don’t have any thoughts in your head, only the sound. You are safe, you are here, and you are in the now.
  2. Identify. Thought label. Don’t allow yourself to think about something from your past. If a thought comes across your mind, ask yourself, is it about today? Does it affect today? If the answer is no… bless it and release it. Bring yourself back to the now.
  3. Wonder. Allow the questions to go through your head about things you see and feel. Allow yourself to be curious
  4. Be grateful. Start your day with listing 10 things you are grateful for, before your feet hit the ground right out of bed.
  5. Do something impulsive for you. Once a day, treat yourself. I want you to feel that the only difference from now and when you were a child, is that the only person you have to ask permission of, is yourself. 😉

If you need help with any of these concepts, or if you love the change this creates and want to know what’s next, I’m always available to help you. Blessings!

Six things a good psychic will never tell you…

shhhh

As psychics, mediums, lightworkers, etc., we are here to help you.  We’re here to help you with pretty much any given situation, any given question you may have.  We can help you with your past, your present, and guide you through your future.  We can find lost objects, help you ultimately time your next ventures and walk you through major transitions in your life.  We can connect with your loved ones crossed over, or walk your wayward spirits into the light.  But there are things, that ethically we will not say.

end-of-the-line1.  Don’t ask us when you will die.  It’s not that we don’t know.  It’s not that we don’t want you to know.  It’s not for any other reason than this:  If your death date shows up in your reading, that will radically alter how you choose to spend the rest of your short, or long, life.  It will alter your life path, and cause such a ripple effect that you will ripple other people’s life paths around you.  Ethically it’s just not right.  You’re here to live, even learn how to live sometimes.  Not to learn how to die.

grimmy2.  Don’t ask us HOW you’re going to die.  We will warn you of dangerous situations, we will guide you around them.  Hell, we’ll tell you not to get on that plane!  But don’t ask us in what manner God, the Universe, and the Cosmos will take you.  It’s not for us to say.  When your path has led to it’s final destination, there is nothing you can do to change how death chooses to take you.

numbers3.  Don’t ask us for lotto numbers.  We can coach you on manifestation, and we can coach you on many other things where you can achieve abundance.  But the gift is not meant for that.  Manifestation is the key to lotto winnings anyway… the conundrum that we reach is this.  There are so many people trying to manifest the same thing at the same time, that it’s impossible in that regard as well.

betting4.  Equally so:  If you are a gambling addict, many of us would love to help you get through that, in a healthy way.  We are not hear to tell you which fighter will win, or which team will win, or which horse will win.  It’s insulting to us.  And honestly, enabling others in an unhealthy way seriously puts a damper on our own karma.  Think about it.

spellwork5.  Don’t ask us for spellwork or energy work that will alter anyone else’s free will.  Ridiculous to think that’s something we should do, even though we can.  We don’t use YOUR karma to do this, we use ours.  Be kind.  As healers we hate to tell people no, when they are in pain.  It hurts us to have to.

robots6.  This one is specifically for empaths.  If you are a diagnosed sociopath or have any sort of attachment disorder, you are polar opposites of us.  Please be kind, stay clear.  Do not ask us for a thing.  This isn’t a game.  We are not your targets. Find another way.

Dark History investigation #R128, Kids own the Attic

Dark History investigation #R128, Kids own the Attic

ghost kids

Sometimes people are afraid of clowns.  Some are afraid of dolls.  Spiders, scorpions, and heights, all the ‘normal’ fears.  But some people are afraid of ghost of kids.  They can play tricks, they still have fun, they play with the living kids and animals… there is nothing to be afraid of.  But we finished this investigation this week, of three wayward children spirits in the attic of a family home.  Check it out!  I will say this again, as I’ve said it before.  There is no difference between children that are alive, and children that are dead.  There is nothing to be frightened of.

Here is the preliminary report……..pre investigation reading and interview:

“Residential Investigation
Case #R128 Dark History/ Chelsea Damali
Original Complaint: Home owner called complaining of possible activity in the attic and through the house (less common) specifically front room and kitchen area. Mainly bothering pet animals and waking children up at night. Daytime walk through pre-investigation and reading arranged/scheduled for early Wednesday 12th 2014 same week, with a follow up para investigation/SRC evening of Wednesday 12th 2014.
Interview of homeowners reveal that they are 3 year owners of this home, but families in the local area are tight knit and have given information, although not very much information, on previous owners and occupants. Homeowners are parents of a 9 year old little girl and a 7 year old little boy. They are pet owners of 2 inside cats and 1 outside dog. Children have not reported nightmares, or anything paranormal. Both children have separate rooms and are awakened in the night at the same time by noises “coming from roof”, “Somebody on roof”……this in all actuality would be considered the attic crawlspace.


On two separate occasions, mom has been home alone and heard footsteps in the attic as if a child was running through, starting at one end of the ceiling and moving to the opposite side of the room. There is no feeling of evil or malice with this occurrence. Often she hears children giggling as well, throughout the house, but especially accompanying the running in the attic. Occasionally there is a smell of smoke in the house, as if there is a campfire, but it’s rare. Water is also a common issue as well, as taps will be off and homeowners have waken to kitchen and bathroom taps turned on to a small trickle, but many times just assumed it was the kids… even when the kids have been away at Grandmas or at camp.
Damali’s walkthrough of home points to two areas of concern, the attic, and the front room with the smell of smoke. There are presences in the home, there have been many coming through, and it is obvious there has been a house fire here in the attic at one point, although it feels no deaths have occurred with this fire. There is also a small swimming pool in the back yard, which DOES feel as if there has been sadness and panic surrounding and inside this pool. This is common with a drowning or injury leading to death, associated with the pool. There is a small animal spirit in the yard, but feels as though he passes through (canine) and will sometimes play with the dog out back. The cats do not appear to be affected in any way.


There have been toys and activity in the children’s rooms, that nobody is aware of but I can almost guarantee could be charted on investigation. Three names come to me with the kids in the attic and house, Michael, Sarah, and Colby.
I advised clients that the smoke smell is residual and will get back with them with a date as to the damage of the house, that is causing this residual occurrence. I do not see or feel evil presence anywhere in this home. There is no threat, and the existing spirits in the home are children spirits. The water phenomena is quite similar to a small child wanting a drink of water. If the living kids aren’t home when this happens, we certainly will consider the kids that are no longer living. I’ve recommended another session scheduled to cross the kids over, as well as a house cleansing, blessing, and sealing. I educated clients on sage as a means to eliminate EMF that spirits need to manifest and will slow the activity until this can be done.


Interesting to note: Upon walking out to my car, I happened upon a curious Mrs. Krevitz type of neighbor that had lived across the way for a while. She mentioned that the previous owners had been there twenty years, and never experienced anything odd or bazaar. They only sold because the house became to big and quiet to deal with after the “accident”….I asked what accident it was, and if she meant the fire, and she said, “That poor couple lost both their kids to an accident in the yard. Colby and Sarah Lynn were their world”.


My existing questions: Who is Michael? Who are the other spirits passing through? What happened in the yard?
To Be Verified and Documented: Water event in bathroom and kitchen. Footsteps across ceiling in attic, giggling. House fire, when and where, how extensive.”

The 12 universal laws:

An extract from Milanovich and McCunes book “The Light Shall Set You Free”(1998).

1. The Law of Divine Oneness

The first out of the 12 universal Laws helps us to understand that we live in a world where everything is connected to everything else. Everything we do, say, think and believe affects others and the universe around us.

connected

2. The Law of Vibration

This Law states that everything in the Universe moves, vibrates, and travels in circular patterns. The same principles of vibration in the physical world apply to our thoughts, feelings, desires, and wills in the Etheric world. Each sound, thing, and even thought has its own vibrational frequency, unique unto itself.

vibration
3. The Law of Action

The Law of Action must be applied in order for us to manifest things on earth. Therefore, we must engage in actions that support our thoughts, dreams, emotions and words.

action

4. The Law of Correspondence

This Law states that the principles or laws of physics that explain the physical world – energy, Light, vibration, and motion – have their corresponding principles in the etheric or universe. “As above, so below”

correspondence

5. The Law of Cause and Effect

This Universal Law states that nothing happens by chance or outside the Universal Laws. Every action has a reaction or consequence and we “reap what we have sown.”

cause and effect
6. The Law of Compensation

This Law is the Law of Cause and Effect applied to blessings and abundance that are provided for us. The visible effects of our deeds are given to us in gifts, money, inheritances, friendships, and blessings.

compensation

7. The Law of Attraction

This Law demonstrates how we create the things, events, and people that come into our lives. Our thoughts, feelings, words, and actions produce energies which, in turn, attract like energies. Negative energies attract negative energies and positive energies attract positive energies.

attraction

8. The Law of Perpetual Transmutation of Energy

This 8 out of the 12 universal Laws is a powerful one. It states that all persons have within them the power to change the conditions in their lives. Higher vibrations consume and transform lower ones; thus, each of us can change the energies in our lives by understanding the Universal Laws and applying the principles in such a way as to effect change.

energy9. The Law of Relativity

This Law states that each person will receive a series of problems (Tests of Initiation) for the purpose of strengthening the Light within. We must consider each of these tests to be a challenge and remain connected to our hearts when proceeding to solve the problems. This law also teaches us to compare our problems to others’ problems and put everything into its proper perspective. No matter how bad we perceive our situation to be, there is always someone who is in a worse position. It is all relative.

relativity

10. The Law of Polarity

This Law states that everything is on a continuum and has an opposite. We can suppress and transform undesirable thoughts by concentrating on the opposite pole. It is the law of mental vibrations.

polarity

11. The Law of Rhythm

This Law states that everything vibrates and moves to certain rhythms. These rhythms establish seasons, cycles, stages of development, and patterns. Each cycle reflects the regularity of God’s universe. Masters know how to rise above negative parts of a cycle by never getting too excited or allowing negative things to penetrate their consciousness.

rhythm
12. The Law of Gender

This last out of the 12 universal Laws states that everything has its masculine (yang) and feminine (yin) principles, and that these are the basis for all creation. The spiritual Initiate must balance the masculine and feminine energies within herself or himself to become a Master and a true co-creator with God.
