Person ask to Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len: I’m talking about something personal. I have a developmental disorder and I have few types of phobia. One is the agrophyophobia and when I’m with too many people I feel phobia and I feel uneasy and I have been doing whole pono without seeing obvious results. And I know this is just a wild request, but if I may, I would like to make a request to you to include me to your cleaning just like you have cleaned the, you know, the psychiatric hospital when you used to work. Could it be possible to include me in your cleaning?
Dr Ihaleakala Hew Lean answer: Well, I included him in the cleaning when he signed up. I would propose to him that he clean his house, his home, and the land, It is very important to clean the land. You’ll be fine. Your knowledge is talking everybody’s cleaning because your problem is our problem, we are family. When one suffers, we all suffer. So when you realize that you do your cleaning, everybody then has left suffering. So we want to thank you for bringing it up. Thank you.
Hoʻoponopono is an ancient Hawaiian practice for resolving problems and restoring balance. Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len is renowned for using this practice to dramatically improve situations. His approach offers wisdom that anyone can apply in their own life.
In one recorded interaction, a person asked Dr. Hew Len for help with developmental issues and phobias. They had been practicing Hoʻoponopono but hadn’t seen obvious results. So they requested for Dr. Hew Len to include them in his cleansing work, just as he had cleansed an entire psychiatric hospital years ago.
Dr. Hew Len responded with care and validation. He let the person know he had already included them when they first signed up. However, he offered additional suggestions for cleansing one’s home, land, and environment. As he wisely stated: “Your problem is our problem, we are family. When one suffers, we all suffer.”
This interaction demonstrates a few profound teachings:
- We are all connected. When one person has an issue, it affects everyone energetically.
- Including others in the cleansing process is powerful. Even if done silently, this act of love can facilitate deep healing.
- Taking responsibility to cleanse our immediate space is important. This clears errors and brings peace to our experience.
- Having compassion for oneself and others is key. Suffering is part of the human experience, and we can move through it with wisdom.
Dr. Hew Len radiated humility, compassion, and wisdom throughout the exchange. His words provide a beautiful window into the spirit of Hoʻoponopono and our shared human experience. When we approach life’s challenges with inner peace, grace, and love for all, transformation becomes possible.
