About Self I-dentity through Ho'oponopono®  - SITH®

I mention SITH® here because although it has not been a particularly significant influence in my own life, an immense number of people worldwide have  learned of ho'oponopono via this vehicle.  SITH® is a specific set of powerful ho'oponopono practices. 

Mornah Simeona created the SITH® process in the 1970s and began to teach it internationally.  Since her death in 1992 several of her students, including  Dr Ihaleakala Len Hew have maintained, perpetuated,  expanded and further developed the SITH® teachings.  

In 1996 the popularity of SITH® teachings expanded exponentially when master marketer Joe Vitale wrote an inspirational article titled "The World's Most Unusual Therapist" which has been read by perhaps billions of people on the Internet.  The following year Vitale worked with Len Hew to expand this article into a book titled Zero Limits, The Secret Hawaiian System for Wealth, Health, Peace and More. 

Vitale's  simple 3 page article and the expanded book describes seemingly miraculous healing experiences which occurred in a mental health hospital when psychologist Dr Ihaleakala Len-Hew helped heal an entire ward of mentally ill criminals by repeating the  phrases "I love you" and "thank you" on his own without ever seeing the hospital residents or staff professionally. 

iao needle on MauiI attended a 2 day basic SITH® class in 1996.   The teaching style  wasn't a good fit for me.  However, I have indeed personally found these phrases "I love you" and "thank you" to be powerful healing tools!!

I was motivated to write about my experiences with hooponopono when I read a contribution in an online forum in which the writer strongly suggested that certified SITH® teachers are the true, authentic source of ho'oponopono pracitices. Thank you Clarity  for thus lighting a fire under me!

In truth, SITH® is simply one path up the mountain.
