Huna is a form of natural healing as well as an ancient wisdom. It comes from Hawaii and originally it was called Ho'omana. The meaning of the word H'oo is "to make". The meaning of "mana" is life force or energy, it is equivalent to Ki in Aikido, Chi in Tai Chi, and Shakti or Prana in Sanskrit.
Huna was adopted by Max Freedom Long in 1936 and it was used to describe the theory of metaphysics which he linked to kahuna. In Hawaiian kahuna means priest, sorcerer, wizard, magician, or generally expert in any area. Huna is part of the New Thought movement, which was developed in the United States during the late 19th century. It is a spiritual movement which emphasizes metaphysical beliefs.

Huna emphasizes practical living and harmony with the 3 levels of consciousness or selves.
    1. Unihipili (subconscious, inner, emotional, intuitive)
    2. Uhane (waking consciousness, rational)
    3. Aumakua (super-conscious, connection with the divine)

The 7 principles of Huna are:
    1. IKE -The world is what you think it is
    2. KALA -There are no limits, everything is possible
    3. MAKIA -Energy flows where attention goes
    4. MANAWA -Now is the moment of power
    5. ALOHA -To love is to be happy with (someone or something)
    6. MANA -All power comes from within
    7. PONO -Effectiveness is the measure of truth

The Huna teachings are considered one of nature's helpful tools in enhancing innate psychic abilities and developing an inner knowing. It is an ancient knowledge that helps one to connect with the highest wisdom within.


Huna healing is a form of holistic energy therapy. Meditation and chanting are common techniques. Here is very simple breathing exercise as an example.
'HA' Breathing
Take a full breath in through your nose, exhale through the mouth with the sound "HA", like a loud whisper. The out breath should last approximately twice as long as the in-breath.

Sabina, it is very good idea to open the path to the different healing teachings. It is never enough of traditional wisdom. =0)
Powerful manifetstaion of words

The value system of the ancient Hawaiian philosophy is encoded in the language. The syntax of Hawaiian language does not allow them to connect any temporary human condition to their innate belief that they were spirit greatness, first, foremost and always. Therefore, they cannot say, "I am sick.”, as being spirit greatness that is never sick. Instead they will say:”The sickness grabbed me."
Instead to say "I am confused”, they will say "Mana'o (the mind, the intellectual center) is thinking confusing thoughts right now.
Instead to say “I am angry” they will say "In this moment, pu'uwai (the heart- the emotional center) is feeling anger."
Hawaiian people have always known that we create with our thoughts and words. They didn’t understate the powerful manifestation of words. The way they are talking about illness is from a neutral zone, which is a sacred place between the individual, who is always spirit greatness, and human condition, which is changeable. Just this language law is an activator of Hana Pono, as it puts the individual into an appropriate place from which s/he makes the shift to Pono, where one is in harmony with self, others and everything around.
