Ocean Healing with Ho’oponopono

by Joebaby on March 17, 2010

It was a beautiful day out on the water. I was snorkeling off the coast of Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, where I live. The water was quite clear that day, and I’d caught a few lobster for my dinner (I love catching my own food!)

I was about 1/3 of a mile offshore, towing my red and white dive flag about 50 feet behind me, when all of a sudden, I saw a wall of brown water coming towards me…

When the tide drops out here, all the water from the 100 miles of canals empties into the ocean… sometimes its pretty yucky stuff… but I’d never seen it this brown (think ‘shit-brown’). Gross…

And I had to swim in it!

I headed back for shore, my reverie ended. Once the tide turns, it stays dirty, the whole swim back…

I felt my energy contract, like someone running for the car in the rain, as if by pulling our aura in, we won’t get as affected… ha! Felt myself fearing getting funky bacteria in my mouth… yeow.

After a few minutes I felt like crap… I love my ocean! And then I had an epiphany (an ‘aha!’)… The ocean doesn’t see herself as dirty or bad or wrong. Clear, blue or brown, she just is… its only me, in my judgment, that sees this water as bad…

In Ho’oponopono, the Hawaiian art of healing, whenever we perceive something as out of balance, we take full responsibility for it. If I’m seeing it, its mine to be fixed. Maybe on a quantum level, the ocean is appearing dirty because of me and my beliefs, maybe its just mirroring the shit in me.

I started repeating the Ho’oponopono mantra; (I love you, I’m sorry, forgive me, thank you) and within a minute I relaxed…

A few minutes later, I noticed something quite amazing…

The water was practically clear again.
