Recommends it for: Everyone, teachers, healers, people in the workplace, in politics, and to humanity in general
Very amazing. I've looked around for several books on Ho'oponopono, and found them lacking. Perhaps this sounds a bit "elitist", but the majority of what is put forth in spiritual writings and self-help are concepts that one can mostly figure out or grasp through 5-10 years of deep practice and daily meditation. And it's not fulfilling to read over and over of things you "get" already.

THIS book was different—not just for the simplicity of the Ho'oponopono practice itself, which is deep and prof

The four magic sentences that this forgiveness ritual includes are: ‘I am sorry. Please forgive me. I love you. Thank you.’ For some, those phrases are well integrated in their lives. For others, the phrases are rarely said. I have been practicing using them for a few years and they enrich my relationships when they are shared and reciprocated.
If you wish to live a peaceful life, this short but powerful read may assist you towards the objective of harmonious living by practicing the suggested e

This book has gained a permanent spot on my nightstand. It will be out in the open where i can use it regularly. If i could give more than 5 stars i would.

helder verhaal, duidelijke boodschap. Ik heb het mantra 'het spijt me, vergeef me alsjeblieft, ik houd van je, dank je' wel duizend maal herhaald en doe het nog elke dag. Het helpt me. Ik word er heel rustig van en kan erdoor relativeren.

This little book is brilliant in the way it is presented. It lays out a simple yet not so simple method for forgiveness- forgiving ourselves, others, and actions.

I'm sorry. Please forgive me. I love you. Thank you. (It's that simple)

Read this book twice already. It should be required reading and discussion in the high school grades. It is a very good book. The exercises are short and easy to do and work rather quickly. I'll be reading this periodically and as a refresher.

Darum geht's:

Das hawaiianische Vergebungsritual Ho’oponopono geht davon aus, dass in der Welt alles eins ist, auch wenn wir uns getrennt fühlen. Aufgrund dieser Verbundenheit kann nichts in der eigenen Welt geschehen, ohne dass es dazu nicht auch eine Resonanz im Betrachter gäbe. Man kann Probleme im Außen darum nur dann ändern, wenn man die innere Resonanz dazu heilt. Ho’oponopono besteht aus vier daraus resultierenden Wundersätzen: »Es tut mir leid. Bitte verzeihe mir. Ich liebe dich. Danke.«

Such a simple but important read. I use ho’oponopono in my life every single day, and have told countless friends about it. It’s so powerful and truly life changing.

This book is like a crystal that finds you because you need it. You might at the time not even realise why you need it, I certainly didn't expect anything that I got from this book. Every page I flicked to, the words literally leapt up and hit me right between the eyes. So much so I couldn't put it down, so I took it home and I will always keep this book close by.
It's relevant to any soul, anyone who wants to live through love and not their ego.

Wonderful. I read this little book three times today (during a 4 hour flight), and will continue to read this book and incorporate the exercises on an ongoing basis. Definitely one that I will carry in my bag, and refer to frequently.
