In our last blog, I discussed three keys for creating or manifesting desired outcomes or goals in your life. The focus of this blog will be to expand on my earlier comments and provide different perspectives for creating your most optimal future.
One of the oldest and most spiritual cultures that goes back over 3000 years is the Huna or Kahuna philosophy of Hawaii and Polynesia. Huna means Secret and the fundamental idea in Huna philosophy is that we each create our own personal experience of reality by our beliefs, interpretations, thoughts and feelings – and that we are creating and are co-creators with the universe itself. Huna is all about learning to do that consciously.
Dr. Serge King is a psychologist, author and was initiated into the esoteric order of the Kahunas by his father at the age of fourteen. In his book, Mastering Your Hidden Self – a Guide to the Huna Way – he summarized the essence of the Kahuna philosophy:
The first principle is the world is what you think it is and this is the cornerstone of the Huna. It means essentially that you create your personal experience of reality through your beliefs, expectations, attitudes, judgments, desires, fears and persisting thoughts and actions.
The second principle is – there are no limits – there are no real boundaries between you and your body – you and other people – you and the world – you and God. Separation is a useful illusion – We are all one and connected with all that is.
Thirdly, energy flows where attention goes. Your thoughts and feelings form the blueprint for manifesting into your life – the closest possible experience equivalent to those feelings.
The fourth principle – now is the moment of power. You are not bound by the past – nor by any perception of the future. You have the power in the now to change limiting beliefs and consciously plants seeds for a future of your choosing.
Fifthly – to love is to be happy. The universe exists because of love. Humans exist because of love – even when they don’t acknowledge it. In Huna, love involves the creation of happiness. Love is the only ethic needed in Huna.
The sixth principle – all love comes from within. There is no power outside of you because the power of God – or the universe works through you – in your life. You are an active channel for that power.
The final principle – effectiveness is the measure of truth. In an absolute universe – which Huna assumes – there cannot be an absolute truth. Instead, each truth must be effective for you. Any organization or system of knowledge is seen as convenient – not factual. Another way of saying that – is all systems – schools or philosophies are arbitrary – so feel free to use what works.
Kirsten Zambucka – a gifted artist and interpreter of Huna has also written on the Huna philosophy and her book, Ano Ano – The Seed provides a more lyrical and poetic expression of Huna that speaks more to the heart – than to the mind.
She provides a bit of history on when the first Christian missionaries began preaching in Hawaii in 1820 – they described the Hawaiians as “heathens” and “immoral” for their liberal attitudes towards sex and for their belief in Mana – the life force – which emanated from a great universal source. They were even forbidden to perform what was called “lewd and lascivious” – the Hula dance which the Hawaiians considered “an extension of the soul”.
Following is one of the lyrics or sonnets from Ano Ano. It is called –
(Making the Seed)
Form a clear unwavering picture in your mind…of the condition or object you desire.
Be very careful of the details of your picture for the subconscious mind that will receive it is sharply accurate…
and you will get that exact replica of what you envisage.
Forget the old condition entirely…let it fall away from your mind.
Clearly see the new desired state.
Paint the picture carefully inside your head…and resist any changing of your mind.
Act then as if you have already received the condition for which you asked.
Feel it already upon you with the love or joy or whatever emotion you would experience as if it were so.
Act it out.
For this subconscious mind of which we speak…this unihipili…is like a child.
It loves pictures and will respond also to any emotional surge you project to it.
Daily thereafter gather mana by taking four breaths and offer it as a gift to God within you.
Then after this offering each day, recall the “seed picture” of your desire and offer it anew also…to the same higher consciousness
This practice will strengthen the picture and make it clearer as it nears the stage where it will take form.
Until your seed bears the fruit…hold it close to you as a secret…for any mention of its contents to another will spill its power to reach fruition.
Wash out all your doubts…they can so discourage the subconscious that the daily rite will be interrupted and your fruit will wither on the vine.
That ancient ritual is the essence of our “modern” mental re-programming and re-education that subconscious for creating an optimal future. However, it is expressed in a manner that is much more powerful, elegant and to the point that many of us authors have spent chapters and thousands of words trying to explain.
In my next blog, I would like to introduce you to some of the magic mystique and mistaken beliefs about hypnosis.
Stay tuned !
