The Famous Ho’oponopono Words of the 4-phrase Hawaiian Forgiveness Mantra

This short and simple mantra, taught us by Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len, is the most popular and well-known ho’oponopono mantra or prayer. This mantra can also be considered as the shortest ho’oponopono prayer.
Below we will teach you the best way for practicing the mantra.

How Do You Chant or Practice Ho’oponopono in Four Simple Steps?

The Ho’oponopono Mantra consists of 4 simple steps or phrases:

Step 1: I Love You
Step 2: I’m Sorry
Step 3: Please Forgive Me
Step 4: Thank You


Although the words must be exact, there is no correct order for the 4 phrases, you can say them in any order you want. You can say: “I’m sorry, please forgive me, thank you, I love you.”

But, if you feel better saying for example: “i love you, i am sorry, please forgive me, thank you”, that’s also perfectly fine.

These simple phrases have tremendous power. They contain the power of repentance, forgiveness, transmutation, and gratitude, to erase and transmute any limiting memories or beliefs.

You can use the four steps to solve any problem, and it’s not necessary to know the cause of the problem or to know what the exact problem is. You can say these four sentences as much as you like.
The more you repeat them, and the more you clean, the better.

When you say this mantra a lot, and it becomes a habit, eventually your subconscious mind will take over and repeat these phrases for you almost continuously, so you’re cleaning all the time.
Which is great because there is a lot to clean!
And not only for yourself but also for others.


Below we will explain each phrase in detail.



These phrases are like magic words which open the combination lock to the Universe.

I Love You

Saying "I love you" to the Divine cleans everything in you, it transmutes the stuck energies so they can flow again, allowing you to experience the miracle of this moment. And you are reconnected again with the Divine. When you express love you get back to the zero state, the state without limits which is pure love.

“I love you” is the code that unlocks the healing. The healing of yourself.
The idea is to love everything. Love the extra weight, love the addiction, love the problem child, love the problem neighbor or spouse. Love it all.

When you experience a problem, which is caused by replaying memories, tell them silently or mentally: “Dear memories, I love you. I am thankful for the chance to liberate you all and me.”
It is best to repeat “I love you” quietly over and over again. Memories never retire or go on holiday, unless your cleaning forces them to retire. The great thing is, you don’t even have to be conscious of problems to heal them. So you can say “i love you” before anything you do, to kind of ‘prevent’ problems. For example say it before you make a phone call, or before you get in your car to drive to a meeting.

I Am Sorry, Please Forgive Me

We say this mantra to acknowledge that we have caught something into our system.
Most of the time we have no clue what this program is or where it came from, and that’s perfectly fine, there’s absolutely no need to know this.
It can be any belief or thought or memory, from yourself or inherited from your ancestors. And this program is causing a certain situation or a feeling of anger, fear, frustration, impatience…

For example, the specific program that you caught can make you overweight or can cause an addiction. When you say “I’m sorry, please forgive me”, you’re making it clear to the Divine that you’re looking for forgiveness for whatever caused this program to show up in your life. But you’re petitioning Divinity for help to forgive yourself, you don’t need to ask Divinity to forgive you.

As we petition Love to rectify errors within ourselves we ask: “I am sorry for whatever is going on inside of me that manifests as the problem, Please forgive me.”
These are some other ways to ask it: “I am sorry for whatever beliefs I inherited or absorbed from my ancestors or myself.”, or “Please forgive me for the data or the beliefs or the memories that are making up this feeling of...”.
Love’s responsibility then is to transmute the errors within you that manifest as the problem.

If you have a problem with someone else you should ask yourself, “What is going on inside of me which is causing this man to irritate me?” Most of the time when people show up in our life, it is because there is a lesson we need to learn or to make us aware of a program inside ourselves, which we can then clean. It’s really great if we realize this because then we can take advantage of it and use it to clean, clean, clean.

It’s also important to realize that memories are shared. When you spot something in another that you don’t like, you have it in you, as well. Your job is to clean it. As you do, it will leave the other person as well. Remember, life is a mirror!

When you notice someone has a problem or ‘program’, that means you have it too. Ho'oponopono is also about taking 100% responsibility for everything going on in your life AND whatever you notice going on in the life of others. What happens in your life is not your fault, but it is your responsibility. Which means you can’t blame anyone or anything for your current reality. So taking responsibility for it, means accepting it, owning it, and loving it, so it can be healed.
And the great thing is, when you clean yourself, you clean the program from everyone.

Thank You

By saying “Thank you”, we express gratitude. We show our faith that the problem will be cleared for the highest good of everyone involved.

You can just say “thank you” or you can use statements like this:
“Thank you for erasing this belief from me, thank you for deleting these data, these negativities, these programs, this negative perception out of my body and mind.”

Gratitude is very powerful, so really feel it!

Really FEEL the Ho'oponopono Mantra “I Love You, I’m Sorry, Please Forgive me, Thank You”

So by practicing the Ho'oponopono Mantra “I love you, I’m Sorry, Please forgive me, Thank You” we are cleaning the programs in ourselves that are preventing us from being at the pure state of love, the zero state, where there are no limits.

You can just say the phrases, but if you really FEEL them, you will get results a lot faster.

You can say these four phrases as much as you want, loud or silently within yourself. The more the better, because there is a lot to clean!
It’s very good to repeat this process mentally again and again, after a while it will become a habit so you’re continuously cleaning. And when you do that, your problems will disappear, one by one.

It is in the hands of Divinity what will happen next. You may receive inspiration to take certain actions. If you are uncertain about which action you should take, just keep using the same 4 healing phrases to clear your confusion. When you get clear, you will know what you have to do. And then just do it!
