Ancient Wisdom of Huna Applied to Everyday Living

There is serious conflict and trouble in the world today, yet as serious as that trouble is it cannot reach all the way into your heart the part of you that loves and desires peace. When there is so much violence, turmoil and uncertainty in our world, hatred quickly consumers itself.

Let Peace begin with you and spread to everyone you meet. Give your love even to those that you disagree with. Your very concern proves that Love abounds with your thoughts, your actions and your understanding. By applying the Ancient Wisdom of Huna, it is possible to transform your life.

Huna was originally known as ‘Ho’omana’ ho’o means to make and ‘Mana’ means life force so together, the word translates to mean ‘Empowerment’. The following are the 7 Principles of Huna:

The World is what you think it is
We create our own reality through our thoughts, beliefs, and fears, just to name a few. We see the world not as it is but as we are. Everything we see has only the meaning that we give it. Your world is built around your own thoughts. Change your thoughts and you change your world.

There are no limits
It seems that we have limitations because of our physical experience and this leads us to believe that we are just a body. However, if you dig deeper you will find that you feel limited in order to experience life here on earth. The truth is that we do not end at our skin. There are no boundaries to you. Any thought that you are separate from anything or anybody is only an illusion.

Energy flows where attention goes
Our body is composed of intelligence and energy and this vibrating intelligence and energy can be converted into any other energy field according to your thoughts. The thoughts that you dwell on become what you experience in your life. In other words, your reality is what you perceive it to be. ‘What you perceive- You receive’.

Now is the moment of power
Yesterday is history and tomorrow is a mere possibility, you don’t know what it will bring. Only this moment is real and it is totally up to you how you use it. You have the power in the present moment to change your beliefs for a future of your choosing and if you change yourself (Your thoughts and behavior) you change your world.

To love is to be happy with
In Hawaiian, Aloha is the word for love, ‘alo’ means to be with to share an experience, ‘oha’ means affection, joy so the full translation of aloha is ‘ To love is to be happy with’ meaning that love exists to the degree that you are happy with the object of your love. Love increases as judgement decreases. To love is to recognize yourself in another.

All power comes from within
The way you think, if channeled in a positive way will have a positive effect. All the power that creates your experience comes from your own body, mind and spirit. Nothing ever happens to you without your participation. No one can make you do anything nor can they make you sad or angry. You choose that action based on your beliefs or attitudes, and if you have the power to create it, then you also have the power to change it.

Effectiveness is the measure of truth
When the thinking and the behavior is appropriate in a given situation, it is considered effective and if it is not appropriate it is ineffective. Use the means that determine the ends that you desire. If you want peace on earth, then use peaceful means to achieve it. If you want to harmonize your relationships with people then use loving means to produce it.

These are tools that can change your life and if you do that you will change the world and experience peace and love. This is not to say that this is the only way, but it is another way.

It is my hope that people hear this message, see the vision and feel the possibility of a better life.
