Healing Changes With Cats Through Ho‘oponopono
Nani and Honda
Last Sunday a rescue cat was offered to my husband and me. It was an exceptional beautiful Silver Point Siamese eight-weeks-old girl with the name Bella. She was meant to go to the Humane Society, but a good soul helped her and took her into her home.
There was so much energy in this kitten that the woman simply couldn’t handle her in her apartment. We said “Yes” to Bella which we later renamed in Nani – what in Hawaiian means “beautiful”.
We didn’t know those things with the energy and strong will yet. What we saw, was simply a super sweet kitten that needed a new home.
Would it have changed our decision if we had known? Probably not.
We brought her home to another kitten, a male, that we rescued on New Year’s Day.
We found him in very bad shape on my husband’s Honda St 1300 and named him Honda.
First off, all seemed going well with Nani’s move to us. She was hissing hard at Honda but otherwise, she was friendly to us.
That changed after I had walked her in the yard in the evening what she enjoyed very much.
After coming back indoors again, Nani became extremely aggressive and really mean, swatting and biting.
We could not touch her anymore or approach her closer than two feet.
Nani spent the night in the laundry box. We really weren’t prepared for those happenings.
Getting up the next morning we hoped, she would be OK again. But she wasn’t.
I knew that getting animals together needs time. Decades ago, I already brought
together a German Shepherd and a four-weeks-old male kitten that somebody found and simply left with me.
That time I took a week off to initiate getting together and to assist, and help in the process of building a relationship of the two so different animals.
So, I was completely clear about it that Honda and Nani will need some of my attention on Monday. It seemed impossible to let Nani run free in the yard. In the morning, she still was in an extremely aggressive mood. Therefore, we walked her in the yard on the leash as the night before.
Healing Means Being In The Present Moment
Also, on Tuesday, her mood improved very little, but as much that I was able to bring Honda and Nani together on the bed, quieting and comforting both of them.
While I was completely in the present moment, watching every expression of their bodies, I was preparing myself to react fast to any occurring changes.
Suddenly, I heard myself whispering the four magic phrases:
“I love you.
Please, forgive me.
I watched my mind discerning if Ho’oponopono could be the appropriate method to help these cats. But I felt in my heart that I wanted to try. And, my mouth was already whispering the magic phrases. I allowed the magic to flow.
Honda looked to me with his big beautiful eyes and tears came up in mine. I felt his pain and his sadness being alone, hungry and sick for long months. I wasn’t able to feel Nani. She was still caught in her rage.
I intensely whispered the phrases for about an hour being physically close to the cats. I continued to whisper: – “I love you. I’m sorry. Please, forgive me. Thank you.” – for the entire day, doing some work that didn’t ask a lot of attention.
On Wednesday morning, Nani started to sound like an eight-weeks-old kitten again, complaining about her prison. For us, it was a sign to get her off the laundry box.
On Thursday, we were able to let both cats running together in the yard. It was magic, and I thanked God many times with tears of gratitude in my eyes.
I bet, you wonder how Hoopono’pono was helping the cats?
In fact, the question is how Hoopono’pono was helping me, making me able to help my cats.
What Is Ho’oponopono?
What is Ho’oponopono? Hoʻoponopono is a Hawaiian Prayer to forgive and to receive forgiveness, and reconcile.
Translated into English Hoʻoponopono simply means edit or correction, with the synonyms to manage or to supervise. Traditional Hoʻoponopono is practiced by Hawaiian healers, and often also within the family by a certain family member.
I got in touch with Ho’oponopono in 2007 during my training to a life coach.
Later on, I learned from Joe Vitale and Ihaleakala Hew Len how to practice this great Prayer.
Ihaleakala Hew Len practiced that Hawaiian Healing Prayer as a cleansing method based on love to oneself. He and his method got more publicity after his powerful prayer caused amazing improvements and healing to patients in a psychiatric hospital while he constantly repeated:
“I love you.
Please, forgive me.
He said it over and over again while reviewing the patients’ files. Few months after he started to pray improvements occurred in the hospital: The patients, who needed to be shackled, were allowed to walk freely. Other patients were taken off medications. Later on, even the worst cases could get improvement or even patients became healed and released back into society.
My Experience With Ho’oponopono
I started to practice Ho’oponopono myself in 2013, mainly to clear my relationships with my parents and to clear other challenging relationships. Also, as a life coach, I used Ho’oponopono in cases where I felt the client could be open for this method. Then I passed this Prayer to them.
But the really profound experiences with Ho’oponopono I have since I live in Hawaii. It started after an online course by Joe Vitale and Ihaleakala Hew Len, that I attended in November 2017, where Hew Len explains how the Prayer is working:
While you are praying the four magic sentences God is erasing your memories. You won’t know which memories will disappear. You simply have to trust that the right ones will be erased. While your mind becomes emptied and cleared, your life becomes better and better.
Well, I thought I need to try the Prayer in this new, more extended way than I was used to applying it. I started to pray with Ho’oponopono in December 2017 and kept going to pray until the end of August 2018.
Do you wonder how it is possible in our mundane world to pray constantly for nine months?
It is possible!
After only a few hours after starting to pray with Ho’oponopono, I was able to pray and think simple thoughts simultaneously.
I prayed even while talking. Yes, it is possible. The Prayer becomes a healing mantra sounding in your inner itself.
During the nine months, I purified myself with Ho’oponopono.
My thoughts became less, more clear and independent.
My abilities extended or woke up.
Since then, I talk less and follow much better the language of my heart.
What happened to the cats through Ho’oponopono? Probably Ho’oponopono didn’t do anything directly to the cats. But, I purified myself and the cats relaxed and followed the purified energy.
I’m very grateful, wise ancestors left that divine method with us to remember us and to come back to ourselves; being able to come back home.
