The Aloha Spirit is
a well known reference to the attitude of friendly acceptance for
which the Hawaiian Islands are so famous. However, it also refers
to a powerful way to resolve any problem, accomplish any goal, and
also to achieve any state of mind or body that you desire.
In the Hawaiian language, aloha stands for much
more than just "hello" or "goodbye" or "love." Its deeper meaning
is "the joyful (oha) sharing (alo) of life energy (ha) in the
As you share this energy you become attuned to the
Divine Power that the Hawaiians call mana. And the loving use
of this incredible Power is the secret for attaining true health,
happiness, prosperity and success.
The way to tune into this Power and have it work
for you is so simple that you might be tempted to pass it off
as being too easy to be true. Please don't let yourself be fooled
This is the most powerful technique in the world,
and although it is extremely simple it may not prove easy, because
you must remember to do it and you have to do it a lot. It is
a secret which has been given to humanity over and over again,
and here it is once more in another form. The secret is this:
Bless everyone and everything
that represents what you want!
That's all there is to it. Anything that simple,
however, does need some explanation.
To bless something means to give recognition or
emphasis to a positive quality, characteristic or condition, with
the intent that what is recognized or emphasized will increase,
endure or come into being.
Blessing is effective in changing your life or getting
what you want for three reasons: First of all, the positive focus
of your mind stirs up the positive, creative force of the Power
of the Universe. Secondly, it moves your own energy outward, allowing
more of the Power to come through you. Thirdly, when you bless
for the benefit of others instead of directly for yourself, you
tend to bypass any subconscious fears about what you want for
yourself, and also the very focus on the blessing acts to increase
the same good in your life. What is so beautiful about this process
is that the blessing you do for others helps them as well as you.
Blessing may be done with imagery or touch, but
the most usual and easy way to do it is with words. The main kinds
of verbal blessing are:
Admiration - This is the giving of compliments
or praise to something good that you notice. e.g., "What a nice
sunset; I like that dress; you're so much fun."
Affirmation - This is a specific
statement of blessing for increase or endurance. e.g., "I bless
the beauty of this tree; blessed be the health of your body."
Appreciation - This is an expression
of gratitude that something good exists or has happened. e.g.,
"Thank you, God, for helping me; I give thanks to the rain for
nourishing the land."
Anticipation - This is blessing
for the future. e.g., "We're going to have a great picnic; I
bless your increased income; Thank you for my perfect mate;
I wish you a happy journey; May the wind be always at your back."
In order to gain the most benefit from blessing,
you will have to give up or cut way down on the one thing that
negates it: cursing. This doesn't mean swearing or saying "bad"
words. It refers to the opposite of blessing, namely criticizing
instead of admiring; doubting instead of affirming; blaming instead
of appreciating; and worrying instead of anticipating with trust.
Whenever any of these are done they tend to cancel out some of
the effects of blessing. So the more you curse the harder it will
be and the longer it will take to get the good from a blessing.
On the other hand, the more you bless the less harm any cursing
Here, then, are some ideas for blessing various
needs and desires:
Health - Bless healthy people, animals,
and even plants; everything which is well made or well constructed;
and everything that expresses abundant energy.
Happiness - Bless all that is good,
or the good that is in all people and all things; all the signs
of happiness that you see, hear or feel in people or animals;
and all potentials for happiness that you notice around you.
Prosperity - Bless all the signs
of prosperity in your environment, including everything that
money helped to make or do; all the money that you have in any
form; and all the money that circulates in the world.
Success - Bless all signs of achievement
and completion (such as buildings, bridges, and sports events);
all arrivals at destinations (of ships, planes, trains, cars
and people); all signs of forward movement or persistence; and
all signs of enjoyment or fun.
Confidence - Bless all signs of
confidence in people and animals; all signs of strength in people,
animals and objects (including steel and concrete); all signs
of stability (like mountains and tall trees); and all signs
of purposeful power (including big machines, power lines).
Love and Friendship - Bless all
signs of caring and nurturing, compassion and support; all harmonious
relationships in nature and architecture; everything that is
connected to or gently touching something else; all signs of
cooperation, as in games or work; and all signs of laughter
Inner Peace - Bless all signs of
quietness, calmness, tranquility, and serenity (such as quiet
water or still air); all distant views (horizons, stars, the
moon); all signs of beauty of sight, sound or touch; clear colors
and shapes; the details of natural or made objects.
Spiritual Growth - Bless all signs
of growth, development and change in Nature; the transitions
of dawn and twilight; the movement of sun,moon, planets and
stars; the flight of birds in the sky; and the movement of wind
The previous ideas are for guidance if you are not
used to blessing, but don't be limited by them. Remember that
any quality, characteristic or condition can be blessed (e.g.,
you can bless slender poles and slim animals to encourage weight
loss), whether it has existed, presently exists, or exists so
far in your imagination alone.
Personally I have used the power of blessing to
heal my body, increase my income, develop many skills, create
a deeply loving relationship with my wife and children, and to
establish a worldwide network of peacemakers working with the
aloha spirit. It's because it has worked so well for me that I
want to share it with you.
How to Enhance Your Power to Bless
There is a technique practiced by Hawaiian
shamans which enhances your power to bless by increasing your
personal energy. It is a simple way of breathing that is also
used for grounding, centering, meditation and healing. It requires
no special place or posture, and may be done while moving or still,
busy or resting, with eyes open or closed. In Hawaiian the technique
is called pikopiko because piko means both the crown of the head
and the navel.
1. Become aware of your natural breathing (it might change on
its own just because of your awareness, but that's okay).
2. Locate the crown of your head and your navel
by awareness and/or touch.
3. Now, as you inhale put your attention on the
crown of your head; and as you exhale put your attention on
your navel. Keep breathing this way for as long as you like.
4. When you feel relaxed, centered, and/or energized,
begin imagining that you are surrounded with an invisible cloud
of light or an electro-magnetic field, and that your breathing
increases the energy of this cloud or field.
5. As you bless, imagine that the object of your
blessing is surrounded with some of the same energy that surrounds
a. Instead of crown and navel, shift attention from shoulder
to shoulder or sky to earth.
b. To help focus the energy field, imagine it
in color, as a tone or chord, or as a tingle.
