The Aloha Spirit
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 to
achieve any state of mind or body that you desire.
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 present (alo).”
share this energy you become attuned to the Universal 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 by appearances. Take the time to try it
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.
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.
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.

moves your own energy outward, allowing more of the Power to come
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.
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 beautiful sunset; I like that flower; you’re such a
– 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
– This is an expression of gratitude that something good exists or has
happened. E.g., “Thank you for helping me; I give thanks to the rain for
nourishing the land.”
– 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.”
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 will do.
Here, then, are some ideas for blessing various needs and desires. Apply them as often as you like, as much as you want.
Bless healthy people, animals, and even plants; everything which is
well made or well constructed; and everything that expresses abundant
– 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.
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.
– 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.
– 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 and fun.
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.
– 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 and
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. Please share it with as many others as you can.
How to Enhance Your Power to Bless
There is a technique
practiced in Hawaii 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
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
5. As you bless, imagine that the object of your blessing is surrounded with some of the same energy that surrounds you.
