The 7 Huna Principles of Life – 5. ALOHA

Sometimes the side effects of love described in novels or songs reminds us of vitamin deficiency or acute illnesses (lack of sleep, loss of appetite, heart palpitations, dizziness, fever, colds, sudden outbreaks of transpiration, etc.)

With Huna however the definition of love is very clear. The hawaiian word for love is Aloha. It is a compound of “alo” which means “being together, sharing and experience in the here and now” and “oha” which means “sympathy, joy”.

The 7 Huna Principles of Life – 4. MANAWA

There are several beliefs about how our past shapes our present. From the eastern concept of Karma where you good or bad actions shape your present and you now have to eat those “Karma fruits” (i.e. you have to bare the positive or negative consequences of your past actions) to a western belief that our present is vastly shaped through our genes or our early upbringing, and therefore mostly controlled by influences outside of our own power.

The shamanic Huna tradition has a very different viewpoint on what shapes your current reality. It is NOT the past that has shaped you into what you are today, nor has it given you, what you now have.

The 7 Huna Principles of Life – 3. MAKIA

Whatever you spend most of your conscious and unconscious time thinking off, will grow in your reality. This works on the positive as well as on the negative side. If you focus the majority of your attention on why things are not working out the way you want them to, then your struggles will grow and become more concrete through time. If you aren’t clear about your goals and direction, then the fuzziness will grow within your life.

The 7 Huna Principles of Life – 2. KALA

Actually Kala has two meaning attached to it. First it states that there are no limits, and second it points at the necessity to release and forgive, which are the 2 ways to overcome those limits.

This is the same approach that unwrapping your mind is all about. There are no real limits to your life, to your capacity to the universe and what it will give you freely – other than those that you define for yourself. That thought at first seems unrealistic, since we do see limits all around us. Our bodies can only grow to a certain height, we only can see up to a certain distance, our ears can only hear within a limited frequency range, we only live a certain amount of years, the earth is limited in its dimension, resources are limited, we only have a certain amount of money in the bank – limits, limits and even more limits. So what’s this no-limit thing all about?
