WHAT IS HAWAIIAN HUNA? HUNA HEALING, HAWAIIAN SHAMANISM, HO'OPONOPONO AND ANCIENT HAWAIIAN SECRETS -QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Is modern Hawaiian Huna authentic?
This is a big question and the answer is... yes and no!
First let me address this: is Huna authentic.
Hawaiian Huna is authentic because we still have access to some basic knowledge of the teachings like forgiveness, cleansings rituals, working with symbols, dream work, confessions and more.
It is not authentic because what we get from the modern Huna is a mixture of different healing modalities. The real teachings are buried and few maybe still know them!
The good news is we can recover some of the techniques and to get benefits for ourselves and for people that we care about. The important thing to remember is the modern Huna teachings are still of great value.
What is Ho’oponopono technique?
Ho'oponopono technique is an ancient Hawaiian Huna healing practice that can help us to let go of negative feelings and emotions. In order to restore the balance families gather to heal a particular condition for a person with problems. A special healer called kahuna leads Ho'oponopono. This healing ceremony usually starts in the morning and ends in the evening. The whole thing can continue 1 week, sometimes less, sometimes more. This ancient Huna ritual consists of different prayers, discussions, confessions and resolutions to bring about healing. Not everyone has access to this special treatment but there are simple guidelines that can be useful for us. The secret of Ho'oponopono is to forgive ourselves for something that we are done wrong and/or to forgive other people that hurt us. One more thing: We have to practice the forgiveness everyday to get results. Forgiveness- this is the secret of Ho'oponopono- the core of the Huna ritual and the process.
What are Huna Elements?
Here you will get to know the elements of modern interpretations of Hawaiian Huna. I cannot say that they are really Hawaiians, but one thing is apparent: elements can help you to clear your energy field. It is good to know what an energy field is. It is an invisible energy that contains our feelings, emotions and memories. People call it an aura. So here you can discover a safe way to attune to the elements and you may find this exercise very beneficial. The exercise is simple but very cleansing. You can use it when you are outside in nature. The good thing is some of the elements will resonate with you.
Hawaiian Huna Elements- Air, Earth, Water, Fire. AIR For the air when is windy feel the movements of the wind. Be careful which wind type you choose. Realize how the wind is cleansing your energy field and your physical body.
EARTH Work with the land, gardening, seed planting or anything that is connected with the soil. Realize how it is clearing old energies of your aura. In this way you will ground and centre yourself in your physical body.
WATER Take a bath or a shower, swim in the ocean, swim in the sea or swim in a pool. Feel how the water is filling you with fresh energy, clearing your energy in depth, revitalizing you. Water and the water element are very helpful for us. FIRE When it is sunny go outside and feel the rays of the sun penetrating your energy field and body. Stay and enjoy the sun. Be careful not to be under the hot sun and do not look directly at the sun. If you do not have access to the sun find a source of fire and feel the element of fire and how it is cleansing you.

I can see and read that native Hawaiian people do not approve modern Huna!
Read my answer to the question "is Huna authentic?" In my opinion Hawaiian people are right! If someone comes in your house and says - "this is my house"; how will you feel? For example the modern Ho'oponopono has nothing to do with the original H'oponopono technique. The good part of the modern Huna is: most of the techniques can help us.
What is the real ancient Hawaiian Huna philosophy
We create our own reality with our thoughts, feelings, emotions, actions, hopes, fears and dreams.
