The following is an email received from my friend Tanya. She is a student of ho’oponopono, the ancient Hawaiian problem solving method. Read on to see how beneficial this fun and easy practice can be. For more information visit my “Methods” pages and click on “Ho’oponopono”
“I want to share with you what happened last night. We were driving to Southern California. We had the car checked out before we left. We also said a prayer. I also ho’oponopono’d right before we left.
It was around 8:45 pm, we were moving with traffic around 70 mph in a pack of cars in the fast lane. There was a car in front, a car behind us, and two tractor trailer rigs to the side of us. Suddenly, we heard a loud rumbling noise and realized that our right rear tire had exploded. Matt was driving and he slowed down and tried to move over so we could get into the shoulder. We then lost control of the car, and spun around into a complete 360 degree turn, all the while going around 60 mph.
During this time I immediately started ho’oponopono. They say that time slows down during traumatic events, or at least our perception of time slows down. In any case I got at least 4 ho’oponoponos out in that brief period. I watched as we careened out of control, missing the truck next to us with our front end. It seemed like only inches away. I remember thinking that it was rather odd how we could see the lights of the cars speeding toward us. I knew we had no control of the car. All we could do was brace for what happened next, or just surrender to the spin of my car that happened to start acting like a top. I surrendered and waited to see what happened next.
We ended up missing the big rig by what seemed like inches. Our troubles were not over since we still had no control over the car and a ditch awaited us. After that brief sightseeing tour we hit the shoulder. There was an embankment that went down around 6 feet on a slope. At that point we were airborne, I ended up hitting my head on the handrail above my window. Suddenly we were no longer moving. The soft dirt of the shoulder stopped us. We were shaken and bruised, yet safe and surprisingly upright.paytm app download apk
This was a true miracle. I was expecting to hit any one of the 4 vehicles around us. It was truly miraculous that we didn’t hit anyone else. CHP came and took a report. An ambulance came and looked at my head. I am ok, just an egg grew on the side of my head. I am pretty hard headed. I felt very disoriented for the first hour afterwards. We couldn’t tell what was going on with the car except that it had 2 flat tires. A tow truck came and we ended up taking it to Los Banos. We stayed the night in a motel and got the car checked out this morning. As it turns out, the car made it ok. It just needed new tires and the rest of it can be handled after we get back to Chico.
I just wanted to share this because I believe that ho’oponopono saved our lives.”
