Ho'oponopono originated in Hawaii as a means of creating forgiveness and healing in a family when one of its members was ill. Many modern practitioners have expanded its use to include self-healing and transformation of individuals. One modern cleansing method is to use a pencil eraser as a cleaning tool to get rid of negative thoughts and bad feelings associated with items, people or situations. The eraser is a physical symbol that users associate with the act of cleansing and removal.

Write down a name, place or anything else that bothers you or creates bad feelings when you think about it.

Tap on the paper with the eraser end of the pencil. You also can tap on other items that cause bad feelings. For example, if you are worried about money, tap on your wallet or purse.

Repeat the phrases, "I love you, I'm sorry, please forgive me and thank you" while mentally picturing that the item or situation has been cleansed back to its original state.
