Of course there have been many who have said that they have “The Secret”. Some may, and some may not. What I’m saying is the definition of the word “Huna” in Hawaiian is “Secret”. What kind of secret is it? It’s not a secret that isn’t told. The information is available. For instance, the Evergreens website has recordings of channeled information about Huna that give the whole rundown. And there are books by Max Freedom Long that give good insight to Huna. But what is it?
Huna is a functionality built into each one of us which we can use to optimize our life, to manifest our intentions in a most efficient way. As a functionality it can be used to help ourselves and others and it could be used to hurt others, but because of the way it works, using it to hurt others backfires and seriously hurts and eventually eliminates the hurter.
We’ve all heard of the conscious mind and the subconscious mind, and there’s also a superconscious mind. Huna calls them the “mid self”, the “lower self, and the “higher self”. The higher self is unlimited in its ability to create and manifest, but the “secret” is that access to the higher self is through the lower self under direction of the mid self. And, as my guru has said, “It’s simple, but it’s not that easy”.
The subconscious mind, as a good servant, takes whatever concepts you give it and does its best to replicate the world you expect and take you where you think you want to go, but “where you think you want to go” is based on everything you’ve been told and everything you’ve experienced, regardless of its validity or truth. Add to that complexes created by the intermingling of experiences and emotions tied to experiences. If the subconscious mind is filled with “garbage”, that’s what you will get in your life.
So, in order to effectively use the subconscious mind to access the superconscious mind, you need to do a lot of “housecleaning”. For instance, we often do things or react to things in ways that may have been appropriate long ago, but are no longer appropriate because we’ve grown older or our circumstances have changed. It takes self-examination to see why we do things and react the way we do, and it takes will power and guidance to change the way we respond to things. This is why “It’s simple, but it’s not that easy.”
The beauty of “the system”, if you will, is that an experience is an experience is an experience, i.e. if you use your imaging faculties to create images and tie to them positive thoughts and emotions, you can rewrite the meaning of an incident and, with your conscious mind, tell your subconscious mind, “This is the new meaning and it’s much better for us. Thank you for letting go of the old meaning, and letting the new one persist. Now, whenever ‘this thing happens’ you will respond in the new way.”
So, work with your subconscious mind. See what responses you have that are no longer appropriate. Re-interpret the past, respond in a manner that helps you and others. Create a new world, one step and one smile at a time.
