Aloha – A Way Of Life

Aloha is a Hawaiian word meaning love, friendship, compassion and charity, as well as in it’s roots ‘the joyful sharing of loving energy in the present moment’. for this reason the Hawaiians also use the word for happy greetings and farewells. In Hawaii of old aloha meant ‘God in us’ Aloha is a way to join the people of the world together in a ‘spirit of aloha’ to bring about physical, emotional, mental, environmental, social and spiritual harmony based on the wisdom found in Hawaiian philosophy and culture.

Each of us can improve our world by our individual and collective actions, We all have that responsibility. If we act with courtesy and caring, the higher self (Kane) in us will be strengthened

You don’t have to be a politician or the president of a company or a famous doctor to make everyone’s life better. The smallest things make the biggest difference. Respect your elders and children, leave places better than you found them, hold the door, hold the elevator, plant something, drive with courtesy, return your shopping cart, get out and enjoy nature, pick up litter, share with your neighbors, create smiles.

Remember-we all come from one source.

While the mind of man has invented thousands and millions of laws, God has only one law. Love one another. Use this law as your guide, and all else will fall into place.

People that practice aloha know that it is a state of mind that anyone can achieve, native Hawaiian or not

Live from the inside out—live aloha.

What Is Huna?

Huna is an esoteric Polynesian Psychology that uses the power of the mind to
accomplish healing and spiritual development, Originally known as Ho’omana, Ho’o means- to make, Mana means- life force, taken together, the word means to empower. So, Huna is empowerment, By increasing your Spirituality, Energy and Metaphysical healing powers by tapping into your Higher Self (Kane) is to
experience and connect physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually to bring into your life whatever you desire. Huna is a Hawaiian word meaning ‘Secret’ or that which is hidden, referring to a tradition of hiding these teachings. Huna is the acronym, and it means ‘Healing Using Natural Abilities’.

The specific teachings and customs associated with Huna vary somewhat from island to island, however, All agree on the concept of three (sometimes four) Spirits of minds in the human being. Human behavior and experience can be explained and changed through the interaction of the following set of  assumptions:

The Higher Self (Kane)- This is the self that inspires you into action (Soul)

The Conscious Self
(Lono)- The middle self, is the rational and reasoning self, totally conscious, it has imagination and will and activates the conscious.

The Unconscious Self (Ku)-The lower Self, Is the self where the ‘Mana’ the  power that is used to create is. It is activated by the five senses.

The Core Self (Kanola) this is the center of the universe within.

Another understanding of Huna comes from the Kupua tradition of the Kahili family from the island of Kauai, Through Serge Kahili King, Who was adopted  as the grandson of Joseph Kahili and trained in his tradition. (This is the tradition that I have been trained in under Serge King.)

The Kupua traditions basic assumptions of Huna are:
1) The world is what you think it is.
2) There are no limits.
3) Energy flows where attention goes.
4) Now is the moment of power.
5) To love is to be happy with.
6) All power comes from within.
7) Effectiveness is the measure of truth.

A Huna Kupua (Sharman) uses the knowledge of the 7 Principles and the concept of our four selves to change his or her reality and strengthen the Mana for healing.  Anyone can practice Huna Principles for total uplifting, for themselves and others. It is no longer a secret.
