In Unity we emphasize on denying what is not true and affirming what is.  Meditation and silence, letting go and letting God and gratitude are all part of the Unity model of spiritual practice.  Nonetheless when we are faced with a major challenge, our old way of doing prayer kicks in.  To many of us, this way consists of beseeching and persuading an external God.  This idea of praying to an old man up in the skies, one that blesses but also punishes, is truly ingrained in the collective consciousness of many of us.

Following, we are presenting a 7-step prayer that integrates all the Unity teachings not only to support you in attracting the best of a situation but also in modifying that old belief of what prayer is… and thus, truly impact one’s consciousness by opening it up allowing Spirit to do what it does which is to bless, heal and prosper.

On January 23, 2022 Rev Ana offered a powerful lesson in which she further explains this prayer technology to truly support our prayer practice by turning it into a practice for peace as the lesson was titled.

Hooponopono is an ancient Hawaiian practice for forgiveness and reconciliation. It’s more than the prayer alone; it’s a process of making things right in your relationships — with others, ancestors, deities, the earth, yourself. … Special words are exchanged, emotions are revealed, and forgiveness flows both ways

The Ho’oponopono Prayer

There are four forces at work in this prayer: repentance, forgiveness, gratitude, and love. These are reflected in the four phrases that make up the prayer.

The phrases, which you can repeat in any order, silently to yourself or out loud, are:





Good Friday is the day we remember the sacrifice Jesus made of his human self so that he may take the position of the Christ for all of humanity.  It is a template for our own transformation.
Jesus said “My God, why hast thou forsaken me?”.  This is a common feeling when our depth of despair is extremely deep and we feel as if something has been taken from us. Jesus leaves a relatively safe area for Jerusalem during the week of Passover, knowing there’s a good chance he’ll die.  He seems to plan this so that he’ll be a transformative example of what is possible.Collectively, we as a human race, are asking how long will this pandemic go on?  It may even feel as if God has forsaken us.  This is an early feeling in the transformation process.

Later, Jesus says “I thirst”.  We thirst for being together again, feeling connected, having a sense of security.  In broader terms, we thirst for a clarity that we are more than our bodies, that we are transcendent.  If we come to know that we are more than our human self, we can handle adversity and challenges better because we know there’s more to us than what we see with our human eyes.
Sometimes suffering can bring us closer to feeling and knowing our true nature.  We look more deeply, explore more earnestly, and give ourselves wholeheartedly to awakening into that true nature.  This is what Jesus did when he said “Into your hands, I commit my spirit”.  When we surrender and commit to feeling, knowing, and fully experiencing who we really are, we open to a transcendent experience of knowing ourselves as the Christ.  As we move away from humanity and towards our divinity, we bring all people with us.  The work we do through surrender and commitment to opening is not just for us, it is for everyone.
We are grateful for Jesus showing us the path.  It is now ours to follow; to awaken with courage, love, and acceptance.  And may we lift others up in doing this work.
Let us know ourselves as The Christ evermore fully and be present to the Divine in each other in every way we can.
