In this guide we will be looking at the Huna meditation and Huna healing techniques, some lesser-known but highly beneficial spiritual exercises.
Huna was originally called Ho’Omana”. Ho’o means “to make” and “mana” means lifeforce, similar to the qi used in Daoist meditation, Aikido, Tai Chi, and Qigong. It is a theory of physics set down by New Age author Max Freedom Long in the 1900s.
Contained in the Huna are healing techniques used to control Mana (Qi / prana) in the body. In this way, Huna meditations are similar to Taoist techniques.
Both Taoist and Huna meditation techniques revolve around balancing the flow of qi in the body to restore optimum wellbeing.
Uncovering these exercises was a true challenge for Max Freedom Long. For millennia, these Huna healing techniques were maintained by the Kahuna, spiritual advisers, according to the Kahuna Research Group. There were the Lapa’au, who were masters of physical healing, and La’au Kahea, who were masters of psychological healing. These advisers were “keepers of the secret”. But in the 1900s, Max Freedom Long discovered the secret and revealed the methods of the Kahuna in his now-famous books.
Below, I will share the best Huna healing technique. It is a wonderful alternative to traditional meditation It’s still relatively unknown by most people. It’s the type of secret technique I like to share in my online meditation lessons and in our newsletters. I hope you enjoy it. But first, let’s look at the fascinating history of Huna healing techniques.
The History of Huna Healing Techniques
In 1917 Max Freedom Long went to Hawaii, where he began working as an elementary school teacher. It was then that he first became interested in the religious practices of the Kahunas (2), spiritual advisers who were “keepers of the secret”.
It was these Kahunas who would eventually give Max Freedom Long his theory of physics, which he wrote in his books.
At first, however, none of the Kahuna’s would speak to Long, so he was unable to learn about the religion.
It wasn’t until 1934 that Max Freedom Long began to understand the religions of Hawaii. He learnt that the Kahuna religion was encoded in the Hawaiian language. And so, he began studying the connection between Hawaiian and Kahuna religions.
He wrote his discoveries in his first book, Discovering The Ancient Magic, published in 1936.
This work formed the foundations of his later (and best) books:
- 1953’s The Secret Science at Work, a Huna textbook,
- 1965’s The Huna Codes in Religions.
The Huna healing techniques are different to the other forms of self-healing meditations. Huna is all about living in harmony with the three levels of consciousness.
The three levels of consciousness are:
- unihipili (subconscious)
- uhane (rational mind)
- aumakua (super-consciousness, connection to the divine).
By knowing and understanding these three selves, we can heal the body and mind, and we can be successful in life.
The guiding principle of the Kahuna is similar to Buddhism: our thoughts have a significant impact on our reality, and real power comes from controlling consciousness.
To live in harmony with the three selves, we must understand the seven principles.
The Seven Principles of Huna Healing Techniques:
- IKE: The world is what you think it is (similar to one of the beliefs of Maum meditation)
- KALA: The world is beyond limits.
- MAKIA: Where attention goes, energy flows
- MANAWA: Essentially, present-moment-mindfulness.
- ALOHA: To love is happiness
- MANA: Power resides within
- PONO: Effectiveness is the measure of truth.
As you can see, there are a lot of similarities between this and other spiritual systems. The idea that reality is the product of the mind, that what we focus on grows, and that we must live in the moment; many of these are familiar from Buddhism.
Much like Buddhism, Huna teaches us to live in the moment, to be mindful, to take control of our thoughts and perceptions, and to understand that love and compassion will lead to happiness. Ultimately, it is the idea that real power lies within ourselves.
One of the main ways to access that power and to control Mana is by practising Huna healing techniques and meditations.
How To Do Huna Healing Technique To Control Mana (A Meditation)
- Decide on what you want the outcome of a prayer to be. For example, health, happiness etc.
- Address your prayer to whichever god you believe in (for example, Christ, Buddha, the Ascended Masters).
- Write your prayer down
- Read the prayer aloud once every 28 days
- Lovingly ask your conscious mind to take the prayer to the god or master on whom you are praying.
- Visualise your prayer being sent upwards through your crown chakra towards heaven / the sky.
- Be receptive and say “Lord, let the blessed rain fall.”
- Listen for a response from your god / deity.
Another powerful meditation is to use the Ho’oponopono mantra for forgiveness, which you can read about in my tutorial on forgiveness.
The Huna Healing techniques and meditations are a beautiful way of meditating on health and success. Although they are relatively unknown, these exercises could potentially yield significant benefits and help restore the flow of prana to the body, which according to Eastern medical science is essential to our wellbeing.
