One of the most powerful and simple tools for releasing unwanted memories and beliefs is Self I-Dentity Through Ho'oponopono.

The technique is simple in that the actual practice can be done by anyone. While the technique is simple, it is not easy because it requires constant and never ending vigilence to our thoughts, deeds and actions and then constant cleaning through the Ho'oponopono process.

"Every individual has the natural and inherent power to think what he wants to think, but it requires far more effort to do so than it does to think the thoughts which are suggested by appearances. To think according to appearances is easy; to think truth regardless of appearances is laborious and rquires the expenditure of more power than any other work we are called upon to perform."

"There is no labor from which most people shrink as they do from that of sustained and consecutive thought. It is the hardest work in the world. This is especially true when truth is contrary to appearances. Every appearance in the visible world tends to produce a corresponding form in the mind which observes it, and this can only be prevented by holding the thought of the TRUTH."

"To look upon the appearances of poverty will produce corresponding forms in your own mind, unless you hold to the truth that there is no poverty; there is only abundance."

"To think health when surrounded by the appearances of disease or to think riches when in the midst of the appearances of poverty requires power, but whoever acquires this power becomes a mastermind. That person can conquer fate and can have what he wants."
Taken From, The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace D. Wattles.

Ho'oponopono is an ancient Hawaiian problem solving technique where the individual takes 100% responsibility for everything. Taking 100% responsibility gives power to release limiting beliefs and create new ones - which thereby create new life.

Cleansing old memories is not about fixing yourself or anyone else. You are perfect just the way you are, only the memories are erroneous.

New beliefs...not fixing the old ones. Letting go of the old and CREATING new.

To release a memory - is to step into presence. Even the hope of the future engages the mind. Anything we do in the mind, from the ego contributes to our own suffering and the suffering of all human kind.

Ho'oponopono helps us relinquish our need to become someone or something different.

When we align with consciousness our creation, our beingness then contributes to the greater good - regardless of "what" we "do". Our being comes through our actions to serve all beings we come in contact with.

Releasing using Ho'oponopono involves engaging memories. Any time you are not fully in the moment - you are reacting from memory. When the dialogue plays in your head, when your response to any situation in deed, word or thought is more intense than it warrants, you are working from a memory.

When you are able to shift the balance of acting from inspiration more than memory your life becomes an incredibly powerful force for increasing the consciousness of the world.

Your ego self is in a constant state of unfulfillment. Releasing the memories allows being present in each and every moment. The moment is the only reality and the only possibile place to "find" happiness.

Of course, there is no finding, just remembering.

Ho'oponopono offers us simple tools for clearing the memories re-playing in the subconscious. Through repentance, forgiveness and transmutation - memories are cleaned and erased and the external world reflects a new perspective.

The foundational cleaning tools of Self Identity through Ho'oponopono are the four phrases:

* I love You
* I'm Sorry
* Please Forgive Me
* Thank You

You don't have to know what the memory is that you are trying to release...it is impossible for you to know all of them anyway. By observing your feelings, thoughts and deeds you will know if a memory is replaying.

When you observe a memory replaying - you say the four phrases. You are directing these to the subconscious. Think of it as if you are speaking to your 6 year old self. My coach always reminds me that "little Frannie" is speaking when he hears a limiting belief come out of my mouth.

I think of the memories like the scene in "A Beautiful Mind" when Russel Crowe's character observes his delusions around him, but no longer engages them. He told them he would no longer believe in them and was moving on.

As you become better at observing yourself you are stepping more and more into being in presence. When in presence - anything is possible.
