To Let Go, Release Burdens & Patterns of Blockage

Full Moon at 4:09am Pacific on Tuesday, May 17, 2011 at 26° Scorpio
The best time to perform the Full Moon Ritual is just before the Full Moon, before the Moon goes Void of Course which this month is exactly at the time of the Full Moon.

“When you hold resentment toward another, you are bound to that person or condition by an emotional link that is stronger than steel. Forgiveness is the only way to dissolve that link and get free.” ~ Catherine Ponder

Ho’oponopono means to “make right” and is the Hawaiian for forgiveness. Ho’oponopono restores your light or energy body and your e-motion, or energy in motion. Through your light body you are connected with all of life. Through your e-motion you are always affecting everyone around you by your thoughts, words, feelings and actions.

Anytime is a good time to do Ho’oponopono. With the great purge and cleansing of souls we are experiencing, especially of old repressed emotion in our energy body, I recommend doing Ho’oponopono as a daily ritual. We’re in a power surge of breakdown and revolution is rapidly releasing old, unprocessed pent up energies presently.

The powerful squeeze and pressure we are feeling into June and July is from a square that is beginning to form this year between Pluto (the ruler of the underworld, and the planet of regeneration and healing) and Uranus (sudden unexpected change, revolution, change). Pluto brings shadow material into the light of consciousness for integration and healing and Uranus awakens us to new revolutionary ways of doing things. Pluto is in Capricorn so the old systems and forms will breakdown as Uranus in Aries suddenly ushers in new, unexpected technological breakthroughs to help us re-invent our global systems that will work for us in the coming new world age. The first taste of Pluto being within orb of square with Uranus occurs this July 2011 when Pluto and Uranus come to within 1º of an exact square. In June of 2012 they form their first exact square and things really get going for rapid evolutionary change with no let up through 2018.

The Scorpio Full Moon is opening us up for this summer’s three (3) eclipses. Look to find out where the eclipses are located in your personal astrology chart and what aspects (if any) they will be making to your personal planets to get an idea about how they will affect you and the kind of dynamic, unequivocal, all inclusive and radical change they will be initiating!

Solar Eclipse New Moon at 11° Gemini trine Saturn at 11° Gemini at 2:03pm PDT on Wednesday, June 1st. Signifying a culmination and new beginning in the areas of your life where these two (2) planets are located. Gemini is all about networking, connecting and communications of all kinds, and Saturn represents authority and while stationed in Libra over the last couple of years has been restructuring our the way we relate and how we communicate, restructuring our relationships and communications systems so they work for us, establishing new boundaries. This Solar Eclipse trine Saturn signals all your hard work re-structuring, formulating, giving form to… is about to pay off BIG time! Congratulations!! Rewards for your hard work, especially as Saturn moves Direct on June 12th. A whole new world for you connect and share with like minded others could be opening up for you in the very near future!

Lunar Eclipse Full Moon 24° Sagittarius at 1:14pm PDT on Wednesday, June 15th. Sagittarius represents the higher mind, education, adventure, and expansion and the Lunar Eclipse represents BIG fulfilment, a dream come true, or you could have some heavy duty burden or baggage that gets released, a huge ending of some sort that you are way past over and due for letting go of and moving on from.

Solar Eclipse New Moon at 9° Cancer at 1:15am PDT on Friday, July 1st. The Cancer New Moon Solar Eclipse is powerful for setting your new moon intentions for your desires related to Nurturance and Support which includes establishing healthy boundaries. As we’ve gone through the set up of waves represented by these three (3) eclipses which may have felt like a tsunami to some of you we’ve been prepared to open the way to walk through new doors that are now presenting themselves to us. Life may suddenly seem radically different from a month to six weeks ago. You’re in a much better place, no matter appearances, for making the most out of life’s opportunities as we now enter the first orb of square between the planets Pluto and Uranus.

HO’OPONOPONO Full Moon Meditation
The natural forces of the full moon will act to assist you in the process of letting go. Through performing this forgiveness meditation you will be loving and accepting the shadow, lost parts of your self, and powerfully activating the law of grace to operate more fully in your life.

Through the power of grace you can know the blessing of absolute and unconditional self love and acceptance, and awaken your compassionate heart. In truth when you love yourself completely you love everything and everyone through all dimensions of time and space. This simple act of transmutation, bringing your darkness into the light, provides wonderful nourishment for your soul, and assists every living creature on planet earth at this time, and your awareness of your actions assisting everyone multiplies the effects of your meditation. Ho’oponopono Forgiveness Meditation empowers you to shine with brilliance and renewed Self love.

Ho’oponopono in essence means to make things right with your ancestors, or to make right and create peace and harmony with the people you have relationships with; those with whom you are entangled, or connected, and and most especially with yourself.

In the Eastern cultures there is a tradition of honoring your ancestors. Being aligned with and cleansing ancestral relations is considered absolutely essential for prosperity at all levels of your life. Without reverence and gratitude for one’s ancestors prosperous circumstances will always be severely limited. In Japan, China, and the Hawaiian tradition it’s important to cleanse any past problems you may have had in relationships, especially with one’s relatives.

There may also be family patterns you do not want to continue. Generational themes are passed along through the family lineage, like depression, poverty consciousness, addiction, or other unfortunate character traits. Ho’oponopono allows you to cleanse your ancestral lineage. This cleansing and healing of relationships within your family lineage brings you the highest and greatest good fortune!

For the Ho’ponopono meditation you will need:

A white candle

Calm your mind and sit quietly. Allow yourself to be quietly present with your Self. Within you is a sacred inner space where the creative spark of life dwells and animates your being. This is your own personal pilot light that you can turn to as needed for guidance. Now is the time to go within your sacred inner space and be still.

Light your white candle and focus on the flame. The candle’s light is a reflection of the Divine spark of light within you.

The Process of Ho’oponopono Forgiveness Meditation:


Here’s my own simplified version of Ho’oponopono for healing yourself of any uncomfortable feelings within yourself, and between yourself and others. Remember that what you see in another is a reflection, a mirror of something within you, so all healing is self-healing. The Course in Miracles says, “What you perceive in another you are strengthening in yourself.”

No one else has to do this meditation for you to experience the desired results. Do Ho’oponopono with every person in your life with whom you feel misaligned, including conflicting parts within yourself. You may repeat the Ho’oponopono Meditation as needed to cleanse all negative emotional blockages.

See the person with whom you feel discomfort within a healing circle of light. See yourself within this same healing circle of light. See a beautiful cord of golden light above your head connecting you with your greater self, or guardian angel. See a golden cord above the other person’s head to their greater self, or guardian angel. Then see a golden cord of light between your greater self and the other person’s greater self. Now see a golden cord of light from your heart to the other person’s heart. Feel the free flow of love moving through the golden cord of light connecting you with the other person.

To heal any split or feeling of separation within yourself, or between you and another person, first say with genuine feeling, “I apologize,” and then, “Please forgive me.”

You say this to focus your awareness on any thought, feeling, attitude, or behavior that has gotten into your bodymind system, like a virus, and is disrupting your peace of mind and heart based love energies. You don’t need to know why or understand why you think, feel or have certain behaviors.

By saying “I apologize,” you are asking for forgiveness inside yourself in order to release and let go of the bad feelings of discomfort like guilt, and shame inside of you. Forgiveness does not mean you are condoning anyone’s behavior. Forgiveness simply means you no longer wish to suffer from a past issue.

End by saying with genuine feeling, “I love you,” followed by, “Thank you.” Continue repeating, “I love you,” and, “Thank you,” for as long as needed until you feel completely free. You may return as needed until you feel complete resolution at the core of your being. Remember to breathe deeply and exhale as you let go of any toxic emotions and stagnant energy.

The sound of the words, “I love you,” acts to transmute the vibration of life force energy from stuck to flowing. “I love you,” reconnects you to your wholeness (Holi-ness). Since the ‘Zero Point’ field or Akasha is absolute pure love, and has ‘zero’ limits, when you express genuine feeling of love you automatically begin to resonate and harmonize with a state of ever flowing grace.

Conclude your Ho’oponopono meditation with, “Thank you,” to express your gratitude that harmony has been restored.

End your Ho’oponono meditation by looking into the flame of your white candle and saying aloud:

God/Goddess and all that is,
Angels, guides, ancestors, teachers, and friends,
I call upon all who love me to witness for me now,
In deep appreciation for my soul’s journey
I acknowledge my unfoldment,
Bless my path as I release struggles,
and burdens from my life.
And so it is.

After completing your Full Moon Ho’oponopono Forgiveness Meditation imagine yourself joined with others in a circle of compassion sharing this awesome experience of conscious evolution. You may feel inspired to take some action if so, listen to your wise heart and take action immediately, no matter how tiny the action step, take it!

Ultimately Forgiveness is a mystical revelation and experience; by performing Ho’oponopono the Law of Grace is activated to free you from your karmic (cause and effect) entanglements.
