I had two significant dreams featuring the concept of Ho’oponopono, the Hawaiian prayer for forgiveness. It is well known as a forgiveness prayer, but these dreams showed me it can be used for gratitude and blessings.
Before I woke one day, I was shown in a dream all the people invisible to us who have a connection to our lives. I was shown that everything in my house from my bed, mattress, appliances, mobile phone, laptop, cabinets, closets, utensils, the building, even the food I eat, etc., were all made, picked, or delivered by people — many much less fortunate than I am. As I glanced at each item in my home I had a vision of the people connected to it.
Some were young people, even children; others were adults and some elderly. Most were not treated in a humane way and lead simple lives. A lot were at a poverty level of living. But without these people, none of this modern life that most of us live would be possible.
Seeing this in the dream, I wondered what can I do to help them and, in a way, to say thank you?
The awareness behind the dream responded to my thought, “You can bless them.” So I listened to the awareness and I found myself doing the Ho’oponopono prayer:
“I’m sorry, please forgive me, I love you, thank you.”
I was immediately enveloped by a white light that pulsated outwards to these people. I kept doing this prayer, feeling immense gratitude in my heart to all the invisible people in my life. It is as if these people were sitting in the shadow of the world.
I woke up feeling very humbled by this dream. I’d urge everyone to take a moment and send a blessing to the invisible people who are in the background of your lives every day.
The next night I had an even more powerful dream about the same blessing. Most of the night my dreams revolved around praying. Before I woke up, the awareness decided to talk to me which jolted me into lucidity.
The awareness recommended I do the Ho’oponono blessing to my body, to every organ of my body, saying I should apologize for any abuse I have done over the years, and send love and gratitude to each one of them. It said, “You must consider your body and organs as your best friends.”
We cycled through all of the organs one by one: eyes, brain, throat, liver, glands, pancreas, heart, kidneys, bladder . . .; and other body parts: back, knees, feet, toes, bloodstream, skin, hands, limbs, muscles, lymph system, you name it; we went one by one and stopped at them, and made the prayer.
The awareness showed me how all the organs, limbs, muscles, blood cells and in fact every cell in my body works tirelessly 24/7 around the clock without taking a break. It said, “Can you imagine if your liver or heart went on a holiday?”
I became extremely grateful to all of them and apologized for not treating them well and for any abuse I have given them over the years, including eating an excess of non-healthy foods and substances like sugar, alcohol, and even smoking. (Now I no longer smoke.) apologized for my increased weight, for sleeping late every night and not getting enough rest, for being lazy and not giving my body enough exercise, etc.
The awareness said, “It is good you are taking measures to heal yourself in waking life,” referring to recent changes I have made with my exercise and healthy food habits.
This is a way to honor the millions of cells in your body. These are millions of dear friends that care about you and work without judgment in total unconditional love serving you. Consider this as part of God’s love to you and everyone to give you a body that deeply loves you and works for you.
If you ever feel lonely or ungrateful about life, or even unloved, remind yourself that you have millions of cells that are your best friends that live in your body and work super hard to serve you. This will help you in restoring gratitude.
I did the blessing, “I am sorry, please forgive me, I love you, thank you,” to each part and organ in my body. Each body part sent me a feeling that translates into: “Thank you for acknowledging me.”
I woke up deeply humbled and grateful yet again. I felt sorry for all of my organs, that I made them suffer for various reasons. I vowed to always love, heal, nourish, and protect them as best as I can. The likes of this dream and the one of the invisible people is one of the reasons I am deeply grateful for the gift of dreaming from the universe.
